Results from HQ for July 2015

Greetings my human friends, warriors and patriotic heroes and heroines.

Would you believe, how time marches on  ... July was the first war in the 9th Tour of Duty .... let no one accuse you of not fighting this global war with tenacity and determination. For there is no Victor until the Vanquished has fled the battlefield and admitted Defeat.
And neither army has.
So the war still wages on ...
Fabulous isn't it!

So how did the July war end? Who won?

The Challenge
The USA army fielded 18 fantastic quizzers who snatched 8371 points  =  48.6% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 16 fabulous quizzers who grabbed 8864 points  = 51.4%.
The UK & Co won the July Challenge.

Scampering over to the next battlefield, because two battles make one monthly War ...

The Survivor
The USA sent 10 fighters into the muddy trenches ... grabbed 2610 points = 44.3%
The UK & Co sent 15 troopers into the fray who won 3287 points = 55.7%
The UK & Co snatched victory in the July Survivor.

Overall winner for July
USA = 46.5%
UK & Co = 53.5%

I'm shaking out my Union Jack to hoist up the flagpole whilst casting a hopeful eye on the folded Star & Stripes ... that one day it's day will come but it's not today as today it is going back in the drawer.

Well done UK & Co! Once more you snatched victory!
Never surrender my American buddies ... for one day Glory will be yours again.

Hmm .. at this point in the rousing warmongering talk I ought to mention a glitch on the Survivor quiz.
In a nutshell .... I can't change the questions.
Which in a nutshell means ... the whole months play is stuck on the current settings at the easier level.
I blame FT for this. And hope it will be rectified as soon as possible. I sit here with bated  .. and even baited breath ... waiting for a fix.

Results from HQ for June 2015

Greetings my human friends.
Enjoying summer I hope? I have ice packs tucked strategically in the pockets of my tuxedo to keep cool.

Well .. June's war was the last war of the 8th Tour of Duty. Many warriors and heroic quizzers have added to the fun and the not so deadly business of world domination. I salute you my friends! This penguin thanks you for playing and  making this one of the longest wars in living memory.

So how did June's war end? Who were the victors?

The Challenge
My American buddies fielded 18 fabulous troopers who grabbed 8203 points = 50.4% of the spoils of war.
My Old Empire friends (nothing to do with Darth Vader and his cohorts, more ancient than that) ... fielded 16 heroic warriors, snatched 8092 pts = 49.6%
The USA won the June Challenge battle!
Well done my friends ... have a glass of shandy on me!

The Survivor
Did our American heroes have enough of a lead or did the unconquerable woadwearers come charging back to claim victory? This is the stuff of nailbiting suspense .... on the more difficult battlefield as the questions get harder.
The USA fielded 11 players, won 2842 pts  = 44.9%
The Uk & Co fielded 16 who sprinted to glory by grabbing 3488 pts = 55.1%

And ... two battles, amalgamated, make for one war.
The USA = 47.7%
The UK & Co  = 52.3%
The UK & Co won the June War.

Whilst the USA won the Challenge ... the UK & Co won the Survivor .. and eventually ruled supreme.
What can I say? Can my American friends ever break the Uk & Co's strangehold? Or are they now unconquerable?

I'm going to wax nostalgic for a minor moment now. The first war was fought in July 2007, when the First Tour of Duty began. And it's still as exciting to this pacifist pengy now as it was then.
Come.. stand straight, walk tall, scroll that mouse fast, and more importantly get the answers right ..... and take pride in your country and wade into the fray for the newly begun 9th Tour of Duty.
By doing so .. you will become the stuff off legends.

And whilst playing the Survivor pile into the smorgasbord and indulge in some nibbles.  Buffalo wings for my American friends provided by Qmel ... which sounds ... different, but interesting. Or for something kinder to animals, or maybe not ... kangaroo steaks from martin cube.  Without a doubt this is performance enhancing food of the highest calibre.. we'll have no rubbish junk here.

And now , I shall grab my telescope and go do what penguins do best ... referee war!

Results from HQ for May 2015

Greetings fellow planet Earth dwellers ...
and wonderful human warriors.

May's results are as follows;
The Challenge
The USA fielded 17 fantastic quizzers who snatched 9050 points = 51% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co also sent in 17 wonderful troopers who grabbed ... 8676 pts = 49%
Whoopee! My American buddies won the Challenge battle ... swept to victory by a 2% margin.... showed the good old UK & Co that they are not beat! Well done my friends. Pengy raises a glass to you.

Will it be enough to win the war this month?
Next ....
The Survivor
The USA fielded 11 worthy warriors .. ... won  2755 pts = 40.3% of the goodies.
The UK & Co sent in 18 woadwearers who swept to victory with 4084 pts = 59.7%.
What an awesome victory!
But two battles make for one War.
USA = 45.7%
UK & Co = 54.3%

I'm still cheering for the USA Challenge win ... but, with regret, I wistfully cast aside the Stars & Stripes, to be folded and put back in mothballs, and shake out the Union Jack for the UK & Co.
Another Great win but be afraid, be very afraid ... because I have a Pengy premonition that the USA , like the phoenix , are rising from the ashes of the war torn battlefields.
