Greetings humans!
First let me say ... I know it's Cyber Monday but all leave is cancelled. Disallowed. A cardinal sin. Categorically denied ... for we have a war to fight. The war of all wars between the greatest nations on the planet.

So my heroes and heroines .... who grabbed victory in November and pummelled the enemy into the mud?

The Challenge
The USA fielded 23 snappy fighters, grabbed 7070 points = 43%
The UK & Co fielded 14 supercharged feisty troopers, bagged 9445 pts = 57%.
Wow! Well done you patriots of the Old British Empire! To my American buddies what can I say? Heroic fighters. Brave and courageous .. who will never surrender. But. You have to hand it to the woadwearers they are fearsome and they are good! Unbeatable? Hmm .. I am tempted to say, yes, to tempt Fate.

The Survivor.
The USA fielded 13 daredevils who grabbed 3273 pts = 49%
The UK & Co sent in 15 warriors who bagged 3442 = 51% of the spoils of war.
That was closely fought! And it's the toughest quiz which only the bravest dare enlist for. But the UK hit squad take no prisoners and snatched victory on the Survivor battleground by a whisker.

Two battlefronts = one war.
USA = 46%
UK & Co = 54%

The UK & Co won the November War ... and I see smoke wreathing in cloudy fogbanks over the muddy trenches. That'll be from the sparks flying from their heels as they sprinted to victory. Take heart my American fiends! Oops, forgot to pop in the R ... take heart my American friends! You almost did it on the Survivor battle ... and no one, just no one keeps the great USA down for ever.
Even now ... I see cubswin2323 is stacking the smorgasbord with Thanksgiving leftovers. Sounds very nice ... wouldn't mind some myself, finished off with some cheese and crackers.
Anyone know if any of this is performance enhancing genetically modified?

Enough of food chat. Back to the war in hand ... so this pacifist pengy can jog off to play referee.

Sadly... I reach for the tissues monogrammed with the Stars & Stripes. A quick little sniffle and a word of admiration for my courageous American buddies who will never ever surrender! And then throwing the soggy tissue aside I reach for the Union Jack, blot my beady eyes dry, shake it out and scamper over to the flagpole to hoist it to proudly fly proclaiming victory!

Calling all players ... pile into the fray for another good scrap!
Bandages and splints provided by the battlefield medic, moi! Pengy!

Greetings warriors! Feisty humans and courageous friends ....

Yes I know .. a bit OTT but once in a while this pacifist penguin has to shout his admiration for your great feats of mental wizardry and knowledge. Not only does a warrior have to be brave to fight this ongoing war ... it calls for phenomenal quiz skills. And I am proud! Looking in the Worldwide Statistics I see my human heroes have the highest average score.
For you are all truly Great.

But how did the eternal UK & Commonwealth Versus USA war, now on it's 8th Tour of Duty, go in September?

The Challenge
The USA fielded 23 brave troopers who snatched 6936 points = 47%.
The UK & Co sent 18 warriors into the fray and grabbed 7808 points = 53% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co won the Challenge Battle by a margin of 6% ...with jules44 leading her army to victory ... and suep valiantly leading the USA's unsuccessful defence.
But what a fight! My American friends will never surrender and will never bend the knee no matter how many times they get pummelled flat into the war-torn trenches.

I excitedly pan my telescope around the other smoking battlefield where mighty players grapple with increasingly tough questions ... which is where I figure the truly wondrous and fearless warriors fight for their country.
The Survivor
The USA sent in 13 braves , snatched 3227 scalps to nail to their totem poles .. = 46.2%
The UK & Co sent in 18 stalwart troops who kept their hair, grabbed 3758 scalps = 53.8%
The UK & Co won the September Survivor battle by a 6.8% margin.

Two battles =  one monthly war!
The final stats from war HQ.
The USA =  46.6%
The UK & Co = 53.4%
It's  another victory for the old Empire ... yes! The old Empire Strikes Back! Sorry, I couldn't resist that. But take heart my American buddies! You might be defeated but you are never subdued into submission. I am sure your day will come ... but nevertheless, a round of applause for the UK & Commonwealth for proving they are mighty conquerors, once again.

And now on a lighter note for no one takes this war seriously ... I shall jog over to the smorgasbord where nourishing nuts and baked ziti for nibbles are on offer.  Healthy and performance enhancing food, ... I like it!

Brave warriors ... let the new war commence!

Results from HQ for August 2014

Greetings human friends and patriotic warriors ...

The august war is over ... and spying with my trusty telescope I see the smorgasbord leftovers trampled and squashed in the muddied trenches. War is indeed a hungry business.
But which valiant army won? The fabulous USA? Or the fantastic UK & Commonwealth?

The Challenge
The fabulous USA fielded 23 troops, nabbed 8108 points = 47.3%
The fantastic UK & Co fielded 18 troops, snatched 9027 points = 52.7%
Well done to the UK & Co for bagging victory on the Challenge battle... led to glory by their super general jules44. .... bravely pursued by America's Suep.

But was it enough to seal my American buddies fate?

The Survivor
The USA sent 13 warriors into the fray, won 3425 pts = 43.5%
The UK & Co sent in 18 trusty troopers, grabbed 4458 pts = 56.5%

Two battles = one monthly war.
USA = 45.4%
UK & Co = 54.6%

Wow! Did you just feel the ground shake? Feel the tidal wave rolling in from the Atlantic as the cheers broke the sound barrier at Buckingham Palace? The woad wearers have done it again!

The August War was won by the UK & Co by a scary 9.2%!

America ... stand firm! But what can you do in the face of such superiority? Raid the smorgasbord goodies? Douse them with water pistols loaded with gin & tonic? What a shameful wicked thought from moi, the pacifist penguin referee, though muttered with a little gleam in my eye. So please no throwing matches and igniting any worthy warriors into fire brands. Besides, no one takes this war seriously and I do not advocate cruelty to humans, not one bit.

Still .. I have my splints and bandages ready for the next war has begun .... and shall now jog off to cheer for all of your from the sidelines, the safest place to be as battle commences yet again.
