General update on Virtua day 5/28

The week started really slow, already the first day there was complains about missing wood, and it only got worse over the following days.

Goudie said he would do wood(after roundstart, cause Bleech wasn’t to find online), but due to IRL stuff, he had low online time, and the wood traders around in virtua couldn’t keep the speed up, and soon wood became rare goods.

In the mean time, NSQ never seemed to be affected by the leak of wood that much, they had their own wood supplier and combined with the Plastic supplier from NSQ and the Iron supplier there wasn’t a shortage like the rest of virtua.

Gelaarsdekat was shoot bankrupt within the first couple of days, motive still unknown, and the predator(s) are still on the lose.

1987 the mayor of Cashington decided to resign as mayor due to IRL, and Nater was appointed as the new mayor.

Bleech went on a crime wagon, and decided to pull the trigger on some of his competition, that made him lose his job as CoE.

Virtua had a serious parking space problem until recent, because Gelaarsdekat was owner of the first cab mv, and after that Tuned created 1, the came Mixer and at last Teleco.

It now meant we had 4 cab companies, while only 3 of them was working.

All the cities was in a big minus for borrowing Bricks from Feds to make a new road.

In the mean time there was a drama fight in FU, where the Cyberian government decided to refuse to work with Refund(The post of refusal had been deleted later), due to yet unknown reasons, they claim its because of earlier opinions about Cyberia, however there are no resent posts from Refund about Cyberia at all?

In FU Metal Alvarez also decided to purpose a treaty which would make shooting in other countries illegal and the treasury forced to pay if a predator was proven guilt of the shooting.

Virtua turned it down yet.

 

Gean starwind was elected mayor of Centropolis, but already from day 1 get got in a fight with MoonPoker which resulted in a few cases(at Virtuan Court) that haven’t really started yet.

(Brendan) won the election of Nasdaqar, and he keeps doing his good job as normal.

4th Candidate – Aztech

Aztechs arguments to elect him as president:

– I want to bring back schools to directly educate student and boost the passing rate.
– I want to repeal the crime city law and make sure that if anything like that is put forward then the people will vote on it.
– I want a referendum system so that any changes that will greatly affect you, you vote on the outcome.
– I want to reform the government so you elect a consul from you city and I appoint the rest so you have a representative.
– I want to reform the court system so there are guidelines to follow time limits and clear procedure to make the court become more efficient.
– If elected I will take into mind everyones opinion and will be strong and stand for my opinions.

5th Candidate – Maisic

Maisic have mayor experience what have led me to my points:

– Mayors should be free to have policies, so it doesn’t feel like a chore.
– Virtua should be more free, restrictions removed.
– Crime-city? Unable to answer that due to Virtuan Court-case.

6th Candidate – MoonPoker

MoonPoker is obviously just joking, again. Due to his criminal status, he can not be on the ballot.

7th Candidate – Felix D

No contact yet.

 

I’ve contacted our President(Bleech ,R108) to hear his view on the upcoming elections. Here ill bring the interview.

Which of these candidates do you find most competent to run Virtua?

“What everybody wants is a clean nice game without hassle. The bureaucratic crap in the plans of Andoversr and Aztech is one of the many reasons why they, in my view, should never become President, or have any other Governmental job other than our National Garbagepicker.

Maisic is my favourite Aussie, but I do feel he could use some more experience as Consul first. He does his job well, so I hope to hear more from him for sure! Felix D is ever a good and experienced player. His activity in the game is a bit more variable. If he can commit himself to do the job, he would do it well.

Best choices are Refund and Tuned. Tuneds advantage over Refund is experience and of course, he’s able to read Dutch. Refund, however, seems to be more active, daring and loved by the general population. I’ve difficulties myself to place only one vote…”

We got like 2 sides, pro-crimecity and con-crimecity. If a candidate of con-crimecity wins, do you think a fast Bylaw would be created to prevent NSQ being a Crimecity the rest of the round, as Andoversr have stated?

“A by-law wont stop the process of Nasdaqar turning criminal next round.. As stated in the Virtuan Law, no bylaws concerning chapters 1 and 2 are legal. The new Council can choose to rewind the changes blindly, but as they wont affect coming round, they would only be wasting time to see what really happens and what the people want. The Council would do well to remember that you can’t please everybody at the same time and change isn’t a bad thing by default. I, for one, hate the extreme conservatism spread by some Virtuan players, like Andoversr and Aztech.”

Where do you think we need changes next round?

“Of course we need to keep an eye on Nasdaqar. Compared to this round, Cashington and Centropolis will need more officers. I, as Mayor candidate of Cashington, will do my best to achieve this. Furthermore, discussion is desired concerning the Priest degree, the balance between Mayor and Council, the balance between President and Vice-President, the juridical system (especially running the Court) and the exam fee and bonusses.
I also hope the next CoF will keep Tuned’s policy on giving priority to Personal Subsidies of 2.5k per player with at least 200 ish per sqst shop.”

Let the best candidate win.

Update:
The votings started 22.30 29.11.12

Round 108 – What happened until now?

Round 108, was a round that started late due to server upgrades, which meant that the first day was a bit slow, and lot of players got on late or first the second day.

The Council members were: Bleech (President), natcha12 (Vice-President), Tuned (CoF), Gaulamos (CoE) and MoonPoker (CoJS).

Nasdaqar lost Pogo as mayor already on the second day of the round, where Pogo decided to resign after critic from Bleech.

This meant that MoonPoker took up the job as interim Mayor, only to take up the interim job after Aztech was fired after having taxed his citizens.

Later (Brendan) took over the job and has been mayor since.

Sadly this was also the week were our beloved Goudie was tried assassinated by Metal Alvares on the contract from Martijn5, however the officers of Virtua acted fast and stopped the attempt.

Our CoJS MoonPoker was sued for having illegal appointed Nishant as National Officer, however the court said that MoonPoker did nothing wrong in that case, but he was fined 150 ISH for insulting Lindapinda86 and 150 ISH for making a joke out of the court with his plea.

Meanwhile the other cities were doing well, until Refund (Mayor of Cashington) decided to resign after pressure from AynRand which called out for him to be fired.

Refund took the job as interim mayor until 1987 was elected as mayor in Cashington, which was a city in troubles; their lot condition was falling like rock from the sky.

Actions was set in motion and Refund with the help from Tuned our CoF, saved Cashington by digging 650 diamonds into the ground.

The Council was working on introducing several new laws in Virtua, which mean that Nasdaqar will from next round be a city where guns, bombs and gunpowder can be sold and found, however fines will stay the same as always, which is expected to keep the crimes actions on a low.

Many traders have shown a lot of angry emotions against the idea of experimenting with a crime city in Virtua, however the laws has been passed and right now they fight in court over whether its legal or not to approve them.

Andoversr and Nater were the two candidates from the group of traders speaking against the new additions.

Sadly our former CoJS took action in his own hand and shoot Nater before he could come on the election list, Andoversr managed to get on the list only to be found dead the next day.

MoonPoker did at the same time do something so bad, that it might go into Virtua history, he deleted all the cases in Virtuan Court and Federals have not been able to restore the cases.

MoonPoker said earlier that he now is a holy crusade for justice in Virtua, but what does that mean?

In the last week, Refund took the job as CoJS after MoonPoker resigned or some might say that he got fired.

Refund is trying hard to right all the wrongs from the time of MoonPoker as CoJS.

What will vNews be?

Refund and I have talked about virtua missing a newspaper.

So we decided to make one, where we will try to post a few articles each week while the round are running, as an update.

We will post the turnover statistics each time we post new articles.. well probably be each Thursday.

Our articles will be about everything, whats happening in Virtua, the heartbeat in virtua, we will try to keep it as neutral as possible.

If you want your president speech to be post mail it to us.

Email will come in a contact topic, where you can get in touch with us.
