Overview Day 7/21

Hello and welcome back to the first vNews edition of Round 129! In this article you can read a summary of all the things which happened in the past week! In this edition there are a total of 5 articles written by Gaulamos, Bleech and YAN. Have fun with reading it!

This week some players were suprised by the fact that the High Council appointed the penguin-loving bell_1996 as Chairman of the International Court. Till the moment there were two cases handled by the International Court and most of the people agree with them, although of course some people from our Federation don’t. A few complaints about the vedicts of the IC were posted in the High Council Public club, the HC didn’t publish an official statement yet.

Other noteworthy news is that gelaarsdekat, son of the retired MoI gelaarsdekat1 and probably the roundwinner of this period, now already has 5 MV’s. He makes shovels, ovens and a lot of other products. Some people argue about his prices, although the prices in Virtua are on average higher than in the other countries of our Federation. Example: chips in Virtua are 39.9 ISH per chip and in Cyberie they cost around the 25 ISH per chip.

International news this week is that the Federal Union probably has finally reached an agreement about the new Head of the Case Records Office (CRO), a place to store up old cases so that they can be used as for example courses how to write a plea. The Virtuan dj ricky will probably become the new Head, already two governmentleaders voted in favour of his appointment. Other candidates were Tresias Aegirsson and thiefo3.

In the Cyberian politics, Minister of Justice (the Consul of Justice and Safety from Cyberie) The Minic appointed his own wife, Virtuan Consul lindapinda86 as Public Prosector. Some members of the Parliament, like Tresias Aegirsson, think what he did is illegal. Some others, like DutchDude, think The Minic didn’t do anything wrong. As DutchDude is from the same party from The Minic (MCV) some people doubt his objectivity. Lawsuits will probably be started. To be continued.

Last but not least some news about a fellow newspaper! A few days ago lindapinda86 Started again with Linda’s Glossy Gossips! From all the gossips from for example about some Consuls who are in love or Federal Assistant’s basement please check out their (Linda’s Glossy Gossips, findable in the clubsview, International Club) club where you can find a link to the newspaper.

 

Overview Day 14/21

Hello and welcome back to the second vNews edition of round 128! As always we will start with the weekly overview. This week a lot of things happened in our Federation, in this overview a summary of them! 

This week the Cyberian President, Tresias Aegirsson, was threatening the Virtuan citizens. The President is angry about a post from the Virtuan Consul of Finances Switzisch stating that the United States of America should intervene in Cyberië due to the political system there. The President sees the post from one Consul as the thoughts of whole Virtua and now wants apologize from Switzisch or otherwise Cyberië would declare war against Virtua. Currently the threats are being discussed in the Virtuan Council Room and no apologizes or war statements were made yet. Will be continued.

Yesterday there also was a discussion in Fed Request. DutchTrader the Mayor of Eurodam quit his job due to the fact that he (with his sub-account DutchDude) wants to become a member of the Cyberian Parliament. When he posted the request in the Fed Request club Federal Researcher posted that he didn’t like it that he quit his job and left Eurodam for another function. He even threated DutchDude with a place on the Register of Eligibility. A lot of players reacted on the statements and it now seems to be that DutchTrader will receive a warning. The Cyberian Law does also forbids it for a player to get 2 or more political functions in 1 trading period.

In Virtua President lindapinda86 started a lawsuit against the Mayor of Centropolis the hawk. She states that the Mayor is not willing to pay her subsidy which she requests, gives her postingbans and isn’t responding at her request to remove it. Would it be revenge from the fact that lindapinda86 made the by-law previous round about the mainstreetslots which gave the hawk a lot of fines?  We’ll see.

As you read there are a lot of things happening in the Federation! This edition is unfortunately not as long as the previous one but it has some articles though! It has one interview and 2 articles sent to us by players and of course the turnoverstatistics! Enjoy reading!

 

Interview of the week: dj ricky

Each edition vNews will interview a player of the Federation. Also today we are going to visit a very special person. He started playing in Cyberië, was Mayor of Zwollar for several times and is currently working for the Virtuan Government as Consul of Justice and Safety. Indeed, it’s dj ricky!

Last week I went to Andoversr, I think it was a very nice interview. I’m curious about dj ricky. Till this moment I only saw him on television when he was walking in the Virtuan Court and said: ‘No, I’m not a Judge so I won’t give my opinion about this pleas, excuse me I have an important meeting in the Council Room.’. He looked very serious there, I think he takes his job as CoJS very serious. But we’ll know soon.

I grap my jack and leave Fort Bleech, let’s go to the taxi-station. No cabs. After waiting for 30 minutes still no cabs.. I see a big board. ‘SHIP TO ROEBELARENDSVEEN DEPARTING IN 10 MINUTES, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY TO GO BACK TO CENTROPOLIS FROM RV’. I don’t like waiting so I take the ship. After a 10 minute trip I arrive at the Harbour of RV, but I don’t like what I see. The first view of Roebelarendsveen: a criminal (I saw him on billboards where people were putting a bounty on his head!) who is robbing riemer_1990! Wait, it’s siemenrey. I want to leave this city as soon as possible. And I’m lucky! 2 minutes later I’m back on a ship of the MV of Mayor Andoversr4 heading to the city of oil, Centropolis.

After a short hop I finally reach Centropolis. Again I don’t know the adress of ricky so I decide to call him. ‘Hello, CoJS here, what do you want?’. ‘Erhm, YAN from vNews here, I’m currently in Centropolis and I need to know your adress.’. ‘Wait where you are.’. Well, that was a weird conversation. I decide to wait and after two minutes I see Officer Fritts coming. ‘Ricky called me to bring you to his house..’. So I follow him and finally I arrive. I thank Fritts and observe the house. It’s a small cosy house. When I want to make a picture of it I see someone coming outside. ‘Hey! Stop! You need my permission for that! Oh, you are YAN?’. After apologizing we can finally start the interview!

As you might read in the head of this article, dear reader, you can see dj ricky didn’t play his whole MC life in Virtua. He started in Cyberië. He’s sounding very satisfied when he tells about his time there: ‘I had a very nice time in Cyberië, I had to learn the game, and when I did that I became Mayor of Zwollar. When I was Mayor for my 3rd time I couldn’t run for the Mayorship of the next round (CL forbids it). That was a shame. After the three rounds of Mayorship I started with the National Politics. I became Minister of Education (the Cyberian Consul of Education) and was in the Cyberian Parliament quite some times. ‘

But a few rounds dj ricky decided to move to Virtua, when I ask about that he smiles. ‘Yup, a few rounds later I didn’t enjoy the Cyberian politics as lot as I used to do. Furthermore I wanted to see more of the Federation. Those two factors made me decide to move to Virtua.’. When I moved from Ibisha to Virtua I saw a lot of differences. dj ricky about the differences he saw on his 1st Virtuand day: ‘The  nice players! They were helpfull and always nice to each other, something what was different in Cyberië. Also the stable political system. A very nice 1st day, and I still enjoy living here like the 1st day!’.

Just like Andoversr, dj ricky doesn’t has a lot of trading ambitions. ‘I never have a goal, when I have a lot of ISH I normally try to get rid of them or going to test things with it. It’s nice when I end in the top20 or top10 but I’m not trading for one of those positions, just for the fun’. ‘When I’d have my COI I would just shoot it away from me.’ says he with a big smile. We laugh.

In Virtua dj ricky doesn’t really have National Political Ambitions either. ‘I like all the Consul Positions, being President for once would be fun I think but I prefer the Mayorship of our beautiful Centropolis.’.

The player that the Virtuan CoJS can remember the best is grondstoffenman. He doesn’t has to think long about that question. ‘We were both crazy and always had a lot of fun, even in the Cyberian politics!.’ ‘I just sent him a Facebook message that we miss him!’.

When I want to ask the last question an alarm starts ringing. ‘Sorry! I’ve to go, we got a case request, first things first’ says our CoJS. What a workoholic! Well, I guess it will be over then… After saying thanks and goodbye to dj ricky I walk to the cab-station. Yes! There’s one cab from Crazy Taxi MV. I take it back to Nasdaqar and get back home. Woohoo! Federal Assistant just finished cooking!

Overview Day 7/21

Hello and welcome back to the first vNews edition of round 128!

Due to the holidays a lot of MC players are currently enjoying their vacation after a very nice trading period, round 127. Although it’s vacation there still happened a lot of things in our federation. Here the overview for the 1st week!

The High Council has a new member. The former International Court Chairman, Andoversr4 (better known as Andoversr) will replace Forsties. The former HC Chairman who unfortunately became inactive. vNews wishes Andoversr4 the best of luck with his new position!

The International Court has a new Chairman. Switzisch will take over from Andoversr4. The protocol will stay the same in this period. Till the moment of writing no cases were requested. That’s not a big problem as the International Court only has three judges at the moment. Bleech, Rokta and The Minic.

The Focus Groups are currently not active. From the beginning of the round no new posts were made in the Focus on Crime and in the other two Focus Groups, the Focus on Economy and the Focus on Education, there weren’t made much posts either. Did the Federals stop with the project? We will know it soon.

On Cyberian soil 5 members of the parliament were fired due to inactivity! The other members of the parliament are not taking their function serious. At a post of the former Member of the Parliament, Luxorr,  KHP member of the parliament A Lontra reacted: ‘I only have to react once in the 36 hours in the parliament club but as you’re whining I’ll answer now.’.

Not only in the parliament were people fired but also in the cabinet are inactive Ministers! The 1st Minister of Justice of Cyberia, Marcello Alvarez, was fired after 4 days inactivity and also the Vice President Dr. Strangelove was replaced due to inactivity. Their replacements are Luxorr and Charleene. Both are members of the Volkspartij Cyberië.

The Virtuan politics are very stable. Only Vice President Refund were replaced due to his decision to declare him unannounced bankrupt. His replacement is sahib. No other officials were fired till the moment of writing this overview.

Last but not least some internal news! vNews is trying to get more articles and for that we introduced the same system as The Miniconomist. From now there will be a topic in our club, vNews, with hints to write about and a link to the site to send your article. There also will be newsfeedposts with announcements when we will publish our editions and links to our site. Till the end of the 2nd vNews edition you will get paid 100 ISH more for each article you will write! Of course you will also get your normal reward (ISH and/or PM days). So keep an eye on the vNews club and the newsfeed! We’re looking forward to see your article!

This edition concludes articles written by our newest writer dj ricky, Andoversr4 and an exlclusive interview! vNews thanks all players for sending their articles to us! Of course the normal statistics are also here. Thanks to the Federals!

Enjoy reading!

Interview of the week: Andoversr

From this edition vNews will interview a player who is playing MC each edition! Our first guest is a Virtuan citizen who plays MC for a very very long time! He began his carrier as a Local Officer Cashington and now he just joined the High Council! You might know it already, indeed, it is Andoversr!

After a short trip from Nasdaqar with a very cosy cab from Penguin Cabs MV I just arrived in the small city Cashington. I’m seeing some small houses, I see the very big townhall and the streets are dominated by big shops. For a small village like Cashington there are a lot of players trading actively. But it seems that in the round before this one Cashington wasn’t active at all, would the new Mayor Andoversr have changed this?

I don’t know were to go to find him so I think it’s smart to ask a citizen. Ah! Is that our famous Mister Miniconomy Podje over there? I’ve never seen him for real! Only on big boards with a lot of lights shining on it. So I start walking to Podje, of course a bit nervous when you never saw him before but he looks nice, I ask him where I can find the Mayor of his city. His reaction is very short: ‘In house.’. I think he is too busy with trading, those people like him don’t have much time for interuptions. So I start walking towards the house of the Mayor, on Minternet I searched for it already, it was a big white villa very close to the famous rocks of Cashington.

After looking around I finally see it! It looks for real much bigger than on the Minternet! So I walk towards the front door and then I hear: ‘Here, this way YAN!’. I look behind me and I see Andoversr coming out of his garage. He offers me a nice cup of tea and then we can finally start with the best thing of the day: the interview!

Andoversr tells about the history 0f Virtua. When he started he had to play in a Dutch country he tells. ‘Well that was very hard, I couldn’t understand them properly and they didn’t want to speak much English too of course, but when Virtua was founded that changed!’.

He also tells a lot (too much to write down here) about the difference between Virtua in that time, around round 20(!), and the current Virtua. But one thing is very clear. ‘The people and the government, there are a lot less of the “oldie” players I remember from back when Virtua started.’ . I can imagine that’s very stupid. I had the same case a few times too and I can tell you, dear reader, that it didn’t feel very nice.

When I ask him the question: ‘Which player can you remember the most? And why?’ he answers directly, I think he didn’t need time to think for this answer. ‘The player I remember the most is riemer_1990 , he was a very hard working Virtua, he served many times on the former Board of Consuls (currently the Virtuan Council), ran the Virtuan Business Academy, and was the main shareholder of Ibisha Island. I can see a bit of a tear in his eyes, the effect of losing a very talented and cool player I think.

Another thing I looked up at the Minternet was the trade-history of Andoversr. Well I can only say it in one way, it didn’t look very spectacular. So I’m curious why he focus that much on the politics and laws and he plays for such a long time and never ended in the top20. But also at this point his answer is very clear. ‘I don’t have trading ambitions, I only really trade actively in the first week of the round, only to make it harder for getting rupted and to do clubs or other things I need built.’. Well, that sounds like a clear tactic in my eyes.

The former International Court Chairman isn’t really thinking about his further MC life. But he has one thing he would like to get done in the upcoming 5 rounds. ‘I’d like to get MC Research legitimized with it’s own permanent + international club(s).’.

Furthermore he wants to continue with working hard for the High Council and of course for MCRecruitment.

After the interview the Mayor drives me to the Cashington harbour. We drink a nice cup of tea and talk about my ambitions. I can only say that Andoversr was a very very nice interlocutor. He listens well and has a clear view at things.

I thank him and I drive home with a Royal Cab of Royal Cabs MV. A very nice day.

Overview Day 20/21

Hello, and welcome back to the third and last vNews edition of round 127! 

The whole Federation is looking forward to tomorrow when the round will end and the trade and election results will be published! Who will win the round? Will it be (Quark), MoonPoker or perhaps goudie? Will current Vice President Refund beat the well experienced Mayor lindapinda86 in the elections? We will all know tomorrow!

In Cyberië three parties are fighting for the most amounts of votes. The partij van de Toekomst (Party of the Future) led by old Digitalian Switzisch, the Elite (Elite) led by the new Cyberian citizen Dr. Strangelove and MCVooruit (MC Forward) led by the current Cyberian Minister of Finances and former Minister of Education The Minic.

In the Cyberian cities Kronenburg and Zwollar no candidates subscribed for the Mayorships. In those cities Federal Government, Federal Researcher and Federal Assistant are available for the mayorships. In Eurodam the in this round fired President whooty is the only candidate for the mayorship. In Roebelarendsveen SCOI traag begrip and current Mayor Guilio Alvarez are available for the mayorship of the next round.

In Virtua two candidates are running for the Presidency. Former President and current Vice President Refund and the overexperienced and current Mayor of Centropolis lindapinda86. Both candidates have the same ideas: a simple politic, where all Virtuans have a say.

In the Virtuan cities there are enough candidates. In Nasdaqar Rokta, when he got elected it will be his 17th time he is Mayor, and Bleech are running for the Mayorship. In Cashington the sub of Andoversr, Andoversr4, and OCMan101 are both willing to become Mayor of the Iron City. Andoversr4 gives this reason to vote for him: ‘OCMan101 will probably try to make Cashington his own mini-country Ocea. I didn’t do that once, so vote me!’. Will this reason be good enough to win? In Centropolis dj ricky subscribed for the mayorship. He will become citizen again at the roundstart. But the Federals were not aware of this and removed him from the electionlist.

In the inactive Ibisha current Mayor and President Rednax wants to run the country for another round. So not much policy will change there. Will Ibisha become active again?

The same counts for Digitalië. Current King hubinho did not request to transfer his crown to another Digitalian so next round he will also stay King in Digitalië. So in the country of crimes there won’t change much things either. Only two new Mayors will have to be elected.

Some other news than politics and candidates is the removal of the Assistant degrees of siemenrey and whooty by Head Assistant (Brendan). Due to abuse of powers. The Head Assistant seems to act stricter on that kind of cases the last rounds.

Yesterday the winners of the Virtuan Awards were announced by the organizer Bleech. The Virtuan (Brendan) won 4 from the 9 Awards! vNews congratulates all winners and thanks Bleech for organising this awesome event!

Since a few hours Podje can officially call himself the new Federal Union Chairman. The Cyberian President A Lontra was the third government leader who voted in favour for his appointment. vNews wishes him the best of luck!

In this vNews edition you can as always read our overview and enjoy the statistics!
