The original XXX was not even a clan.  It was GOD which MGT took credit for.  The new XXX is Milo and some people who think they are "GOD"..........

And crypto made GOD what it was  :)

Fact is, last time me and boosh played CCC we won by 40 points, finished with 80 or so, which led to me making a post about how there is no competition - resulting in my life time ban. I still can't register under my original email (..banned).


yer, back then it was easier to win by skill because very few teams were actually practicing for the events. Adhoc strategies could easily lead to victory, even if they weren't perfectly executed. It was especially easy to rush the hell out of certain teams. Things have changed and every half decent clan practices for _every_ event not just once :p Competition is at a new level now where more organization is required to win a CCC.

and btw crypto, thanks for the civ history lesson, I enjoyed it  ;)

The policy softened from that moment. No we unbox ppl for CCC, feel free to join :P

I'd like to see Gef and Mag et al come back to see if they can win as easily as they say they can, i'm kind of curious.  Come back for one CCC and relive your glory days( a la Jordan); and then you can retire in peace!

However, it will not be PPP that will be your problem, IT will be NBK, a new clan that has been terrorizing the neighbourhood!!!! :attack: :attack: :attack: :attack: :attack: :attack:
Once upon a time, there was a powerful and surprising rush.  In the end that humiliation motivated me way more than anything else could. (TMB)

LOL, thinkning back where NOM learned to slave (he was always a great builder) is funny.  It was our first ccc as GOD before Gef and Boosh.  Anc TBG 3v3, me, nem, nom.  We made it to finals.  Funny thing is we picked warrior starts and didn't even realize how great it was, we just liked the civs.  Everyone who played us lost a player to a starting warrior of ours until the finals vs MDR where we lost.  That game we actually made it to pop 2 and NOM had to slave.  Slave man Slave!  ROFL, I guess we invented warrior start a long time ago, but were too nwb to know it.

Lol, i can remember how hard we pinged a teammate when he come to pop2...SLAVE gogogogogo  >:D
