From Issue 593's Editorial:
Is the new Tyrannian Battleground a permanent site feature that will be some sort of rotating event (like a weekly tournament), or is this some kind of short-lived site event? It'd be really fun if it could happen all the time. =) ~setorange

Something Has Happened!
You are now eligible to use 'Battleground: Brute Squad' as an avatar on the NeoBoards!
Hurray! The brutes were victorious!

Out of the boons I think I'm going to go with Right Round Round Round, they are all pretty bad this time. I wish we had the stock market one. Last time I picked Cartogriphication which meant that I got an extra couple of grand in NP each day but wasn't anything amazing. There are two battledrome boons if anyone is currently trying to defeat a hard opponent, they might be useful. (list of boons and uses here: http://www.jellyneo.net/?go=tyrannia_pl ... ttleground)

Yay, I was on the winning team again! That's three so far. Absolutely none of those boons appeal to me, though. I guess I'll go with the extra 10% damage output one.

I went with 10% percent damage as well, just because I figured it would be the most helpful. The avatar's rather nice, though I'm not sure if I'll ever use it or not.

Hooray, I was finally on the winning side!

The boons aren't very exciting so I haven't picked one yet. I quite like the Site Theme though.

As for the avatar:

Am I being incredibly dense or is anybody else having a hard time figuring out what this avatar is? It just looks like random shapes to me, I actually can't work out what it's supposed to be!

It looks like an axe-head (the shiny bit) coming in and hitting/sticking in something (the thing with a triangle drawn on it). I suppose it might have been taken from the pre-plot video?

And is the axe head reflecting the main Brute guy's face?

You're able to join a new faction again - Seekers, Awakened, or Sway. The Neoboards seems to have a bandwagon going for the Awakened, so perhaps they're a decent choice?

I just joined the Awakened, it seemed to be the way the majority were going. Hopefully I'm right!

Damn, I meant to choose an alliance and forgot! They should let us choose while fighting is going on; it's not like we know which team is winning. Oh well.

Which side won?

Edit: Okay, Awakened did take it, and there's a new boon that gives multiple intelligence from one book read. Nice!

The Awakened did indeed win. The avatar is as follows:

And you can preview the site theme here:

A little bit too... green for my liking.
