Hello again, and welcome to the second vNews edition of the round!
First of all, we would like to give a warm Congratulations to our new Ibisha and Digitalie correspondant, Tortaam. You will be able to find his first article in this week’s edition.
A Federal press conference about the Mystery product was held earlier this week. Although the Federals are still yet to tell the Federation what this product is, they did set a special challenge for the players of the federation:
“If at least one mystery product can be found in every city in the federation, then the product will become worth 80,000ish and everybody will be granted an extra 250ish at the start of next round. If not, every mystery product is worth nothing.”
Which leads us on to our next story; Virtua’s first Mystery Product was built this week! Ephef announced to the public that he had created one of the mystery products earlier this week. We at vNews would like to congratulate Ephef on building the first one in Virtua, and we hope to see more being built over the next few days.
The court saw more than it’s fair share of controversy this week. Multiple issues have been raised about how bias judging, the volume of cases opened, and of course, the infamous deleted verdict in one of the cases, which sparked multiple other cases. It certainly appears that the judges and the Consul of Justice and Safety have their work cut out for them this week.
There was also plenty of Virtuan activity in the International Court, which marked the first cases it had handled this round. MoonPoker has opened two PI requests regarding the Virtuan Government and the court, and Andoversr requested a case against the Virtuan lawbook for discriminating against Nasdaqar citizens. This was later corrected to the Virtuan Government to avoid confusion.
This week saw the unfortunate demise of Virtua’s own budding criminal, bell 2. bell 2 was shot dead in Digitalie by PHANTOMVIS, after he tried to steal from multiple shops there. bell 2’s demise was ultimately caused by him being jailed, which gave the Digitalians time to gather their weaponry and start shooting. bell 2 was banned from a total of 100 shops , even days after the event, after his crime wave hit Virtuan traders in all three cities.
Following the article written by (Brendan) in last week’s edition, a discussion topic was opened up to the public to present their views on the education system we have in place. If you have any views on the matter, please visit the Council Public club and join in the discussion.
We have seen plenty of discussion in the FU 2.0 club this week, specifically on the topic of how to make the idea better, after Tresias Aegirsson announced that the idea would be put on hold. The main discussion was about country representation and how the voting would work in different countries, to which a solution has not yet been found.
It was proposed to the Federal Union to allow players to commit crimes with more than one account. The idea, put forward by Bleech, noted how you could have multiple accounts performing jobs but not commiting crimes around the federation.
This round has seen a surprising lack of foreign shops being set up in Virtua. This is likely due to the protests going on in Ibisha about the fines placed on Ibishan players last round, as Ibishan traders are often the first to set up shop. However, we have also seen a distinct lack of foreign shops from Cyberie and Digitalie since the harbour has opened.
Good luck to Virtuan Traders for the final week! Let’s get some good positions on the board!
