Hello, and welcome to the (slightly early) first edition of the round. We hope you enjoyed yourself during the inbetween round, and we wish those Americans among you a happy thanksgiving!
Also as a side note, we have changed the logo temporarily to reflect Sunday being the first day of Advent. We hope you like it!
In what seems to be the new style, the winner of last round was (once again) a resident of Digitalie. Ikenco followed on from the previous winners, DROPTABLE players and The King 2 to achieve the top result, with another very large net worth. Likemyitem also deserves a mention, as he came a (relatively) close second, with Forsties coming in third, over 100,000ISH behind second place. However, with all the recent shootings, it seems somewhat unlikely that Digitalie will have the traders needed to pull off another wonder victory, and rumours hold that viraxje in Virtua may be the favourite to win this round.
After a remarkably close presidential election in Virtua, that saw a remarkably high turnout of 37 votes, Rokta narrowly beat Andoversr to the role, gaining 20 votes to Andoversr’s 17. (Brendan) in Centropolis dominated the mayoral election, gaining more votes (20) than every other mayoral candidate running in Virtua put together. In Nasdaqar, PHANTOMVIS snapped up the victory with 4 votes to Felix D’s 1. Cashington saw a slightly more exciting election, with Duups gaining 5 votes and narrowly beating Mastrup, who managed 4 votes, with both Kevin and Nr2Speed gaining a respectable 2 votes a piece.
After all this, the final council was announced as:
President – Rokta
Vice President – Andoversr
Consul of Finance – theovenman
Consul of Justice and Safety – sugarfree
Consul of Education – Andoversr
General Consul – tirdebal
After the announcement that Tresias Aegirsson would be leaving the High Council, the new High Council member was finally announced this week as lindapinda86. After recieving its fair share of criticisms last round, the High Council is now slightly more in the public spotlight, but High Council chairman CIT was adamant that lindapinda86 would be a valuable new member to the team.
The Federals created a fair amount of discussion after the “Education” club mysteriously appeared during this week. In the club, the Federals shared their opinions on how degree value is rapidly declining, especially with the stoppage of state exams in Cyberie, and how they would like to see the degrees regain their value. More information can be found in the Education club (.com link), as well as a place where players can give their opinions on the matter.
Cyberian President Le Vainqueur stepped down from his post this week, to be replaced by Jaap Eerlijk, the current Vice President. It appears that this was due to real-life issues.
Good Luck to everyone in the weeks ahead!
