GJW XII: Final Results - First Clan Awarded - Hero of the War Awarded
Members of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood,
I would like to congratulate all of our Clans on a competitive and well fought war. Participation was outstanding, fair play was the norm, and the battle for First Clan was extremely close. With that being said, the Dark Brotherhood can only have one First Clan and this year that honorific goes to Clan Odan Urr.
It was a hard fought war with Arcona finishing as the Second Clan of the Brotherhood and Clan Scholae Palatinae just edging out Naga Sadow for Third Clan of the Brotherhood. Please be sure to congratulate Arcona who has now finished in the top two in four consecutive wars as well as CSP who has finished third for the fourth consecutive GJW!
COU's performance was absolutely outstanding with participation levels higher than any Clan in recent memory. The large majority of Clan's members contributed to this victory and they should all be exceptionally proud of their collective team work. I have been Grand Master for almost five years now and I cannot remember such a dominant participation performance. Congrats to all of you! Participation numbers for the entire Club are below.
In addition to the Clan Honorifics, we also award the GJW's individual Heroes. Like the battle for First Clan, the battle for Hero of the War was exceptionally close. Congratulations to War's hero, Satsi (aka Abbey, aka Atty)! Abbey led Clan Arcona from the front and was an amazing example of how to lead, how to participate, and how to win. Please also congratulate COU's Maximus and Aurora on Second and Third Heroes of the War respectively. The top three will all gain new titles on their dossier to commemorate their outstanding individual efforts. The top five is below.
We also kept score of the highest performances in each Clan. Congrats to each of you for your individual efforts and outstanding work. Kudos to GM Ashen for showing all of us how to remain active and engaged. Clan Champions below.
In addition to Clan Champions, please see the list of our Completionist members who "did work" and exerted "maximum effort" in this Great Jedi War. Congrats to all members who completed an event in every bin throughout the GJW.
Lastly, for GJW statistics. Please see the overall bin participation below. We are proud of everyone's efforts.
I would like to repeat my thanks to all of our members for their outstanding efforts during this war. The Seal of Retribution, Clan Credits, and First Clan rewards will all begin to roll out shortly. DC members will get the details out over the next day and everyone should see the spoils of war shortly. Your individual Clans will handle the awarding of merit and SAC awards and you should also see them shortly.
I am extremely thankful for everyone's patience during the grading of this event. Many of these events were graded by multiple members of the DC, often blind to their fellow DC member's scoring, and then we rechecked everything multiple times for accuracy. We wanted to make sure we delivered accurate and fair results vs conducting a rush job and getting it wrong.
Lastly, I am humbled by the dedication and outstanding work that the DC put into this war. Our DC created a new faction system for the war, created new possessions, new character sheets, a new planet, contracted out art work, updated the website, did wiki work, created a scoring system that has been extremely fair, and graded entries in a rapid/fair/efficient manner. The level of work for the War, combined with the DC's total efforts since their promotions/major awards has resulted in the following token's of my thanks to the Dark Council.
- Prophet Telaris "Mav" Cantor: Silver Sash
- Prophet Howlader Taldrya: Ruby Scepter
- Prophet James Lucius Entar: Ruby Scepter
- Battlelord Farrin Xies: Promotion to Warlord
- Adept Morgan B. Sorenn: Diamond Sword
- Adept Marick Tyris: Promotion to Master
- Battlelord Dracaryis: Amethyst Kukri
- Grand Master Jac Cotelin: Sapphire Blade
- Adept Evant Taelyan: Emerald Dagger
I have also promoted the Tribune of the Dark Brotherhood's wiki, Selika Roh di Plagia, to the rank of Adept. Slags, welcome to the Elders.
Please take the time to congratulate the DC on their awards and new ranks.
The GJW XII Conclusion fiction will be released shortly, with a customized section to highlight the successes of the Heroes and top finishing Clans. Look for more updates from Wally or I shortly. Thanks everyone and congrats!
