“It’s Mercy, Compassion, and Forgiveness I Lack. Not Rationality”

So it would seem, judging by some of the kill reports on CU Assassin’s website. While some are as descriptive as last year and others blatantly to the point, one thing remains constant as the obvious thought and dedication that was put into each of these ambushes will show: these assassins take their jobs seriously… […]

Hold Your Fire!

Bwog has received word that until midnight tonight, CU Assassins has been suspended. According to tipsters, there was a security hole in the website that allowed other players to gain valuable knowledge about their targets with little information required. We’re assuming ESC is frantically doing engineer-y things to fix this. “The Management” advises players to […]

Water Gun Wars Get Heated

Those of you following CU Assassins may have noticed that in place of the mocking, playful, and egotistical tones of early kill reports, many killins of the past week have been described with malice and aggression. Water-gun-in-your-face aggression. There are now only two teams remaining in the game – one with two players, and one […]

CUAssassins: Murder, They Wrote

When we last checked in with Columbia’s favorite hose, point, ’n’ laugh competition, the kill reports sounded like the best creative writing assignment you never turned in. This week, the killers lay on the literary as we hit notes of tragedy, romance, and Tupac. The following noir nugget wins Most Evocative for bringing together Tracer […]

Killer Kill Reports in CUAssassins

Just a few days after the start of the beloved ESC festival of waterguns, over one third of the agents have been officially as dead as Empanada Joe’s, and CUAssassins is starting to get nasty.  Less violent but just as serious as the war in the street is the competition between killers for the best […]

Assassins Season Commences

A new year means a new session of CUAssassins. Assassins reports for those unlucky souls who have been “killed” since the game began on Saturday at midnight are beginning to filter in from the front (aka “everywhere”). Among the lessons learned from the first batch of kill reports: Agent “Cinnamon”  learned “Never say, ‘come in!!!'” […]

 Image via plasticless.com Just as you’re feeling comfortable with this new semester, you feel a sudden wetness.  Yes, CU Assassins is back, launching with E-Week 2009.  ESC has more information in a blog post thing, awkwardly titled “Oh Snaps.”  Clearly, this is going to be a killer event, as it involves multiple snaps “from behind.”  […]

Midday Miscellany

1)  Finding the Columbia search engine less efficient than manually locating wanted pages? Google through all of the columbia.edu pages here.  It works like a dream. 2) Cents and insensitivity:  Moneycontrol India asks whether Indian students may be deterred from studying in the U.S. following the massacre at Virginia Tech.  Columbia’s cited. 3)  The beacon […]
