Greetings addicts of acceleration. As promised last issue, I am presenting another arena created by former NOVA member Chris French, a venue that will challenge your aquadueling skills to their limits. Next month you can expect a scenario and a few other articles from Chris as I plan to publish all of the files (the few that exist) remaining in my slushpile.
As the U.S. is about to complete its 2002 General Election for the Congress,
Senate, and the Presidency itself, the Memphis Maniacs of SHAAG have shown
democracy in action by running the group's annual Presidental Election
Duel. John Blaylock, 2050 AADA World Dueling Champion, provides the details
of the event in this issue. Washington State and California have been active
as well. Once again, the AAIE and SCAB once present accounts of their metal-crushing
AND SO IT BEGINS . . .
Once again, it is November, the time when the WADA Car Wars League becomes a crazed battle for points. The CADC has finished its racing season for 2050, talking the first four positions in the 2050 WADA League. I would like to extend my congratulations to all of the winners in the group, and to thank all of the CADC members for their dedication to Car Wars. I look forward to seeing the CADC points race next year and watching the champions try to hold their titles.
Although the non-CADC duelists now have two months free of CADC dueling, they need to earn at least 172 points between now and December 31st to seize the WADA Championship from the Detroit Dominators. I wish all of you good luck.
Speaking of the WADA League, I have adjusted every duelist's statistics to reflect a new, official method of scoring ties. The idea was suggested by Edgar Lincoln, the AAIE President. Thanks, Edgar, for the advice. Details of the new system are now listed on WADA HQ and in this issue's NANS Ticker section.
MJ Daniels, 2049 AADA World Racing Champion, and Elizabeth Lindsay,
former AADA Manager, have started an organization that might be of interest
to a few Car Wars players. The name: Internet Dueling League. A description
is in this issue's NANS Ticker section.
After being aired only once during its premiere in 1994, Viper Season One returned to television last week on the Sci-Fi Channel. The series is broadcast on Tuesday and Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time and Eastern Time. Sci-Fi Channel has two broadcast feeds, Eastern and Pacific, which have different schedules, therefore check your local listings. If you did not have the opportunity to watch the first season, you are in for a surprise. Season One has Metro City controlled by criminal organization called The Outfit who has uses The Highwaymen, a group of elite drivers using state of the art weapons and Dodge Stealths. Season One is darker and closer to Autoduel Earth than later seasons of Viper, therefore the episodes are not to be missed.
Viper Seasons Two through Four are also being rerun courtesy of USA Network. Episodes are aired Monday through Friday at 1:30 a.m. Pacific Time. (Yes, 1:30 in the morning).
I have no idea if Sci-Fi Channel will repeat Season One, if USA will
repeat Seasons Two through Four, if USA will show Season One, or if Sci-i
Channel will air Seasons Two through Four.
IN THE BEGINNING
Next year will be the 20th anniversary of Car Wars. As part of the celebration of this occasion, please tell me when you first heard of, played, and purchased Car Wars. I will publish the stories in CWIN throughout the year. I would also like to receive descriptions of the funniest and most memorable Car Wars games. I want to make next year special for autoduelists, so if you have any ideas to celebrate this milestone, post them to the Dueling Debate Message Board or e-mail them to me.

SIX TRUCKS, VAN HIT BY PUMPKINS ON PENNSYLVANIA HIGHWAY

November 10, 2000
Web posted at: 9:04 AM EST (1404 GMT)
ERIE, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Someone dropped pumpkins from an overpass of Interstate 90 near Erie, Pennsylvania, hitting six tractor-trailers and a van.
No one was injured Thursday but the pumpkins damaged all the vehicles, smashing through a windshield and a sunroof, police said.
"We expect that kind of stuff around Halloween, but not at this time of year," Pennsylvania Trooper Matt Harris said. "We don't know if it is kids, adults or what."
Last month, a similar incident occurred at the same overpass. Several people in a car dropped pumpkins onto a tractor-trailer.
Police had no suspects in either case.

October 28, 2000: It's Crazy, But It Just Might Work
No, on second thought, it's crazy.
But here's something from the Pyramid chat boards, just so you non-subscribers don't miss ALL the fun . . .
What if you had a Monopoly game where everyone got to be the car? And
the cars each mounted rockets, MGs and mineflingers?
And every time you landed on someone's property, you had the option of paying rent or dueling it out, torching the place, and generally
razing it to the ground? You know, that big, unused center of the board would make a great arena, just watch out for those two giant stacks of Chance and Community Chest cards.
Thank Christopher J. Burke for this gem.

From: IDL Webmaster <email@example.com>
To: Michael P. Owen <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Press Release: You may have heard the rumors that started around the 2050 WRC. More talk came up at the WDC. I am here to tell you that is is true.
How's that for a cheesy beginning.
Welcome to the IDL, or the Internet Dueling League (or International Dueling League, for the roleplayers out there). The IDL was formed so Car Wars players from all over the globe can participate in duels against new opponents not normally available without commuting hundreds of miles to a major convention.
What is the IDL? I first thought of the idea when driving back from a CADC duel, which was more than 300 miles from my home. I decided that in this high tech world, there must be an easier way for the well versed Car Wars player to play. So with a little help, the IDL was born.
The IDL has two PCs, a digital camera, and all the Car Wars supplies needed for a good 3-D duel.
Where is the IDL? The IDL Headquarters are located near Chicago, but anyone can get there by going to <http://www.funwebpage.com> and following the links. Nothing is up yet, but we hope to have the first images up by 10/22/2000.
How does it work? On D-Day (Dueling Day) players will be able to view
a photo of the arena, and all of the cars in it. The players then fill
a form telling the IDL what they want to do (accelerate 5 mph, perform a D2 bend left, turned as close to the wall as possible, etc.). We then move all the vehicles as per the instructions, and then post a new photo at the site, with all of the new movement covered. Players then fill out a form telling us what firing actions they want to take. Dice are rolled (by an IDL Referee), and players are notified of the results, as well as given a photo of all that has happened, complete with special effects. Then the next turn begins. Car Wars is already a slow game, but we anticipate a good duel to last about six hours. The whole game will be completed in a day.
Who is the IDL? MJ Daniels, 2049 AADA World Racing Champion, and 2049 WDC Head Referee, is the founder of the IDL. Elizabeth Lindsay, former AADA League manager and ex-Steve Jackson Games computer guru, will be handling all of the technical aspects. B.P. Hammer, CEO of numerous arenas, will be the President of the IDL. Ted Downs, long time advisor to Mr. Hammer, will continue to advise the IDL President. We are also looking for a Chicago area Car Wars player who knows the rules quite well to act as D-Day Referee.
How do I join? Drop an e-mail to <email@example.com> and let us know about you, and what days you are available. We hope to target Saturdays or Sundays, as that is when most people have the free time.
Mike Owen: Please copy the above message and put it in your next Car
Wars Internet Newsletter. While nothing is running as yet, by the time
you get the next newsletter out, we should be done with the alpha testing.

Nine combatants battled it out at the inaugural Division 15 duel at the Pasadena Municipal Autoduel Arena. The outer walls of the arena were still under construction so the duelists got to draw straws to choose their starting positions from anywhere around the outside of the arena or start from one of the middle gates. Erik Rasmussen was the only duelist to choose a middle gate (north). From the south-west to south-east corners: Jordan Effrig, Jeremy Willis, Rick Cross, Rob Hagmaier. Going north: Dean Gibson, Stan Wells. Steve Richards started from the eastern half of the north wall, Chuck Phillips from the western half.

Date: Fri, 20 Oct 2000 18:28:47 -0700 (PDT)
A long time since I put together a report of SoCal Car Wars happenings.
First, the next SCAB duel will be held at Brookhurst Hobbies on Sunday
November 5th. We'll start checking vehicles at 11:00 a.m., so we
can start at noon. The duel will be Division 30 and held in an arena yet to be determined. If you are interested RSVP to Chuck Phillips at
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. (Do you like how I volunteered you, Chuck?) Brookhurst Hobbies in in Orange County. We'll send you detailed directions to those that RSVP. As always beginners are more than welcome to come.
Second, the Southwest Regional Championship will be held at the L.A.
Convention this February. I don't have the exact dates handy, but
needless to say, start planning now for this extraveganza. Here are the details set up so far:
Saturday 10:00 a.m. Preliminary #1: Division 10
Saturday 6:00 p.m. Preliminary #2: Division 30
Sunday 11:00 a.m. Final: Division 20
The 2051 Southwest Regional Championship will be a two-round event.
Players may participate in more than one preliminary round. Vehicles
provided or bring your own for approval. Contact Eric Freeman <AADAref@sjgames.com> for details. Beginners are welcome. The winner of the Regional Championship will get seeded to the Semi-Final Round for the 2051 AADA World Dueling Championship to be held in August at GenCon. Last year, the AADA WDC had close to 50 participants (with only one from SoCal). I'm hoping for 60-70 this year.
Third, we've had a lot of stuff going on recently. We had two big duels
at the L.A. Game Convention at the beginning of September. We only have
a very spotty report for the first (off-road) duel and a complete report
for the Sunday duel.
Gateway 2000 Division 25 Off-Road Duel
SCAB Off-Road Modular Arena
Vehicles (Clockwise around arena)
Eric Freeman: Hvy. trike, ICE, 2 VMGs (each with HD ammo) right
Chuck Phillips: Mid-size, ATG with APFSDS ammo front, SFD back, fake ramplate
Erik Rasmussen: GG front, ramplate
Sean: Luxury, ICE, GG front, FCGS right, HDFOJ back
Stan Wells: Mid-size, ICE, large bore projectile front
Jeremy Willis: Compact, small bore front, dropped solid back (?)
Rob Hagamier: Reversed lt. trike, PP, pulse laser right
Tom Lalonde: X-hvy. trike, ICE, 4 RLs (each with incendiary rockets; 2R, 2L)
Peter Cossaboom: Luxury, 3 small bore projectiles front, dropped stuff, armor sloping
Michael Rosenberg: Luxury (?), 3 rockets front
Dean Gibson: Pickup, 2 ATGs front
All vehicles had off-road suspension (except for Hagmaier), and off-road tires. Despite the huge size of the Hot Wheels scale arena, cars quickly closed on one another.
Eric F. came out of the gate and turned towards Chuck to his left. He
fired at Chuck's front on the first turn. Chuck had heavy metal on his
front. One VMG rolled big damage (13 points total) to hurt the front, while the other bounced off. Chuck's return fire missed, however he simultaneously set his stickyfoam dropper on automatic.
Eric and Chuck continued towards each other with Eric veering slightly to the left to avoid a head-on collision and keep Chuck on his strong side. As they closed, Eric took a shot at Chuck's tires. (Did he score a hit with one?) On passing, Chuck turned into Eric to T-bone him. Chuck's bumper triggered ATG scored damage on Eric but the ramplate was fake and Eric survived the collision. The ram set off Eric's linked ice and flaming oil discharger package. When off-road, all Crash Table rolls are at a -3, so Chuck was able to keep control of his vehicle. The collision left Chuck at a very slow speed. On leaving after the ram, Eric took another shot at Chuck's tires and took one off. (I'm only somewhat certain I took off a tire after the ram. It could have been before.) Eric then tenuously went through the stick foam left by Chuck, skidding and sliding along the way . . .
Opposite of this action, Sean and Erik were jousting. Sean missed Eric
with his OG, but as Erik closed Sean nailed him with a FCGS. Erik drove
his car into Sean's right side for a T-bone, but the collision was at low speed and Sean survived.
After the collision Erik continued to pursue Sean, while Eric started
to move onto the scene. Eric chose the weakened Sean as his target and
peppered him with VMG fire. Meanwhile, Erik took shots at Sean's rear with his GG. As Eric circled the two of them, Sean put out another
FCGS counter right in the path of Eric. The cloud breached Eric's weak under and top, but hit component armor underneath.
Chuck fully turned around towards the passing Erik and Sean. Erik picked
up speed again and zoomed past the ever slowing Sean while Chuck
and Eric closed on Sean. Chuck got a shot into Sean's weak side and breached but did not kill him. Sean pivoted to put Chuck into flaming oil.
Meanwhile, Eric continued to shoot at Sean with his VMGs. Chuck passed the 5 mph Sean, and Sean's car (now driven by Stan) pivoted again and put Chuck into flaming oil again. This flame took off the second of Chuck's tires making him a mobility kill (+10 Sean, -10 Chuck).
Erik closed upon Tom. They fired back and forth at the tires of each other. Erik's GG took out the solo wheel on Tom, (+10 Erik, -10 Tom) while Tom took out one wheel of Erik's car, sending Erik into a spin, where the out of control Erik ran straight into the stationary Tom for a head-on collision. Both vehicles survived the ram.
Erik stopped his spin in Tom's arc of fire, and Tom finished the second
of Erik's tires making him immobile. (0 Erik, 0 Tom) then he proceeded
blast through the armor to finish him off (-10 Erik, +10 Tom). Soon after Eric finally managed to shoot through Sean's armor for a full kill (-10 Sean, +20 Eric). By this point, Rob has already racked up 40 points with barely a scratch and started speeding towards the weakened Eric.
Building up to full speed, Rob and Eric took shots at one another while
Tom took some long range shots at Eric. Rob scored a hit on Eric, taking
out one VMG, while Tom and Eric missed. Eric turned to get his weapon arc out of Tom's fire, his last shot at Rob before the time clock expired
misses, while Rob's return fire missed as well.
1. Rob Hagmaier: +40 DP (full kill Michael, mobility kill Jeremy, possible
mobility kill Peter)
2. Eric Freeman: +20 DP (full kill Sean)
2. Jeremy Willis: +20 DP (full kill Stan, full kill Dean, own vehicle killed)
2. Tom LaLonde: +20 DP (full kill Erik R., possible completed kill Peter, own vehicle mobility killed)

5. Erik Rasmussen: -10 DP (mobility kill Tom, own vehicle killed)
5. Chuck Phillips: -10 DP (own vehicle mobility killed)

Here is the report for SHAAG's 2051 Presidential Championship which I won. There is only one area that I have a question about for point standings. Dwight and Chris eliminated each other in a head-on ram but the damage to Dwight was only enough to kill the driver, not damage the engine. After I stopped his car, Curt got into Dwight's car and started driving it around and shooting the turreted RR, he blew one of my tires and tagged two others before I breached his armor and eliminated him permenantly. (Curt was a full kill because he was out of ammo.) Does that count as two vehicular kills? He actually hurt me more in Dwight's car than he did in his own car. If not, I had three full kills, although my opinion, it should be another vehicular kill.
2051 SHAAG Presidential Duel
John "Koala7" Blaylock: Sedan, PP, active suspension, SB solid tires,
XL, FCGS, sloped plastic armor.
Hugh "Hip63" Swindoll: Luxury, ICE, 2 smart linked RRs (1 in turret, 1 front), RR magazines of HEAT and HESH ammo, airdam, spoiler, sloped plastic armor
Chris "Johnny Go" Ziemer: Luxury, ICE, 2 linked ATGs front, MML back, plastic armor
Curt "Bob" Workman: Luxury, ICE, laser-guided HRs with rocket magazines in turret, ram plate, sloped plastic armor
Todd Thrash: Luxury, ICE, 2 linked ATGs front, MML back, plastic armor
Tom "Pimp Daddy" Ferguson: Luxury, ICE, laser-guided HRs with rocket magazines in turret, ram plate, sloped plastic armor
Dwight "Atilla the Penguin" Dawkins: Luxury, RR in turret with 2 extra magazines, FCGS with 2 extra magazines, 2 SDs each with explosive-tipped spikes (1RBC, 1LBC), ram plate, sloped metal/plastic armor
* Todd getting caught in a crossfire between me, Hugh and Curt. I chewed
up the armor, but Curt and Hugh delivered the finishing blows.
* Hugh getting mobility kill for eliminating Todd's second tire, and Curt finishing him off with a laser-guided rocket in the breached rear.
* Head-on collision between Chris and Dwight resulted in their mutual elimination. Dwight's car had no front armor, but only the driver was killed.
* Tom rolling his car and being parked behind smoke so his laser-guided rockets were useless.
* Hugh chewing up my rear armor and forcing me to make some radical manuevers and eventually throwing a flame cloud that caused him to roll
and bounced out the gate of the arena, thus disqualifying him.
* Curt leaving his car after I blew out the tires and getting in Dwight's wreck and trading point blank shots with me, he at my tires and me at the armor with the XL.
* Finally eliminating Tom with a hand-held GL.
Results (The points are based off the rules used at the 2050 AADA WDC, but they don't mean much to SHAAG standings.)
1. John Blaylock: 80 points (full kills Hugh, Curt's car, Curt in Dwight's
2. Hugh Swindoll: -10 points (mobility kill Todd, own vehicle killed)
2. Curt Workman: -10 points (completed kill Todd, own vehicle killed)
4. Chris Ziemer: 0 points (full kill Dwight, own vehicle killed)
4. Dwight Dawkins: 0 points (full kill Chris, own vehicle killed)

All SHAAG members need to look over the rules and check their personal info, some information I do not have. Let me know of anything you find wrong, left out or questionable. It has changed since the first draft, so please read the freaking thing as I worked really hard on it! God, I need a beer!

2050 WADA Car Wars League Rules and Regulations: November 04, 2000 Update
Suggested by Edgar T. Lincoln of the AAIE, championship points for ties are now awarded by adding together the championship points for all of the positions in the tie divided by the number of players in the tie. Both victory and participation points are used in this formula.
Example 1: Duelists in a three-way tie for first place in a 10-person
duel would normally receive 60 (50 + 10), 29 (20 + 9), and 18 (10 + 8)
the tie did not exist. These drivers would receive 35.67 [(60 + 29 + 18) / 3] points because of the tie.
Example 2: Duelists in a three-way tie for fourth place in a 6-person
duel would normally receive 3, 2, and 1 points if the tie did not exist.
drivers would receive 2 [(3 + 2 + 1) / 3] points because of the tie.
This new way of scoring ties has been used to recalculate all of the
events recorded in this year's tournament. The advantage of this new
method is more points are earned than using the previous system where the points for one position are divided by the number of duelists.

If you want to post a car on the Web, mail the stats and your name to
me (so I can give you credit). I will then put it on my site.
