Opening word day 21/21, Round 151

Welcome to the third and last edition of this round.

As you probably all know by now it’s the third week of the round again. The time where activity on the chat is about the same as the resources left on the city maps and you’re happy with any sales you get. Attempts by the game leaders to increase third week activity seem to have failed.

When we look in to politics this round, what started with a bang ended with a whimper. Shady Mouse, who gained Presidency after the unfortunate bankruptcy of Sesam took over and appointed some new Council members. After appointing though little seems to have happened, in fact, we still do not have a Virtuan Court, nor has there been any approved law change. Over the last couple of days it seems President Shady Mouse wants to make up for some of the lost time this round trying to push some laws through the voting process.

As promised before this edition we also selected a vNews writer of the round. With a number of very interesting articles which required quite some preparation this rounds vNews writer of the round is : dj ricky!!
The staff is excited to be able to congratulate dj ricky and hopes there are more articles to come from this great writer.

On a different note, to fill this edition we once again had support of some great writers. We have Mystq writing about her conquest to keep the Mrs MC title, Riviat sharing interesting lottery information, Woshiempire() with has second article of the round and more!

Our reporters also told us that the Federals might not have been able to respond in person, but they managed to get some interesting information. There will be something happening to resources to resolve shortage issues and shooting damage this round was not accurate and will be tested again, so there will be some changes to that as well next round.

Enjoy reading! We will be back next round!

Trouble in Paradise

The political scene in Virtua was very intense even before the beginning of Round 151. Five Virtuans ran for President and criminal Viraxje won by a landslide, beating his competition with more than half of the votes of all of the citizens! Chaos quickly followed as runner-up candidate, Sesam, brought to everyone’s attention that Viraxje was unable to hold the position of president because of his indulgence in criminal activities. Tempers flared as citizens and officials argued about what was right and what was legal.

Once the decision was made to appoint Sesam as President, the discussion turned to who would become Vice President. Because of multiple candidates and position possibilities, attitudes and confusion continued until the Federal Government stepped in to assist. By the time the dust settled, one president was bankrupted, the next in line was sworn in, a new vice president with no current political affiliation was appointed, and Mayors were even switched! These changes left the country in a state of disarray. Citizens were worried if there would be a functioning Council. City Officials were worried about their budgets.

Shady Mouse stepped up to the plate, taking over the half-staffed Council and promising to bring the chaos under control. As Consuls were employed and assigned duties, it appeared once again that the National Government of Virtua might become functional. After only a few days, tempers are beginning to cool.

When asked how he felt about these events, President Shady Mouse explained that he was “very surprised” at the outcome. He disclosed that while he does feel the current administration is “stable”, he has doubts of its ability to be productive in its current form. He leaves his citizens with hope, however as he states:

“Expect changes coming along.”
