Kings of Spun the 23rd & Spun News...

Spun Salutations! All hail our 23rd Kings of Spun: APPIE1615 of the EU and StealingHearts of NA. Spun congratulations to you both! Before getting down to the details of the coronations Uncle Spun has a few announcements.

First up is that we have submitted a bug fix for the current unspun crop of bugs, if all goes well it should go live on the 2nd of April, but Uncle Spun will confirm this once he knows for sure. This is however just a bug fix, there is no new Spun content yet (well except the advent of Spunland Challenges - also due on the 2nd), and indeed there may have to be another bug fix before fresh Spun comes to Spunland, we'll find out on the 2nd of April...

Big Spun thanks to AlphaZone4 for inviting us to take part in their 5th Birthday celebrations, madmunki attended a live Q&A in Spunland EU last thursday and had much Spun fun, especially as the Dukes of Spun got to shake off their cobwebs and go for a spun galavant We must bring the Dukes of Spun back to NA soon!

Finally, although it makes Uncle Spun feel like some tawdry used car dealer to say so, he feels it pertinent to point out that players can reduce the spun points lost by the oft-cursed Spun Hopper by wearing any of the Spunland Full-body costumes. Normally one loses half of one's Spun points when hit, but in Spun attire this is reduced to a mere 20% These also enable the wearer to plant up to 3 seeds on a Spun Patch, much like the Spunflower Head. Note this applies only to the full body commerce items (the spun suits, spunling ghost, Spumpkin, Happy & Angry Spunlings costumes) not the reward ones (the tree & the spun-on-a-stick), hence the used car dealer reference. Uncle Spun has nothing against car dealers by the way, used or otherwise.

And so to the Coronations! Uncle Spun is pleased to say that the EU coronation was as busy as ever with Spunlings happily darting this way and that with the Spun Crown. Many heads were graced with the regal prize, too many indeed to mention all, elijahbuttons and trutje90 bore it more than once and although JohnPlayer67, xXLykoXx, MEGA_SACKBOY_30 and Suriel1981 all laid claim at points APPIE1615 was once more crowned Spun Majesty with 19, 696 Spun Points! All Hail! Uncle Spun must also mention the ever gallant sam_reynolds01, who also took charge of the crown briefly and had what one suspects was a rather large score, and lola_25 our incumbent majesty of the time who watched on in the pleasing form of a cat.

Apologies to any in NA who were as confused as Uncle Spun by daylight savings, there will no doubt be more confusion next week as those pesky daylight savings come thrust themselves upon us in the UK, but afterwards our times should be consistent until autumn shows it's dreary face again. Anyway, yes NA, the contest got off to a sharp start, lilmonstersmiler and dxkills16 got a brief shot in a contest otherwise dominated by the mighty StealingHearts. This took place against a backdrop even more Spun than usual as a convention of rodents had seemingly gathered to discuss matters of great import in the centre of Spunland! Callooh Callay! Spun Congratullations to Majesty StealingHearts, who for the record won with a spuntastic 24, 298 spun points! Uncle Spun hopes that she will forgive the picture he has chosen to use of her 3rd Coronation as it evokes the altercation that took place at the time. There should be no guilt or recrimination at winning more than once, everyone has the same Spun chance, although Akina8373 must be commended for her commitment to fair play (and her altruistic underspun endeavours!) and hopefully lilmostersmiler will accept our deep spun commiserations and wishes for better Spun luck next time! Talking of which...

Next week, the 24th Coronation Contest will take place on Tuesday the 1st of April, as the clocks will have sprung in the UK to BST, the EU contest will be from 8-8.30pm BST, and the NA contest will move back to its usual time of 4 - 4.30 PDT and 7 - 7.30 EDT. We'll stick to these time from then on. That's a Spun promise. See you soon, stay Spun!
