The ups and downs of Virtua

Like everything in life, Virtua also faces her ups-and-downs. Lately, many of the most notable Virtuans have been taking a holiday in Cyberia or outside of the federation. This results in somewhat slow rounds, but most practically also in an ineffective government. This round, we face a lack of functional education department and sufficient judges to preside cases in the Virtuan Court. What will be the answer to these problems?

In this article I wish to highlight my position in a discussion that is not about being right or wrong, but about what feels right for most of the people while respecting the traditions and customs of the greatest nation of the Miniconomy federation.

First of all, having ups and downs are reality. Last round we had almost zero trading activity, but this round the Virtuan economy booms with the NSQ stock quotation being the highest of the entire federation while writing this article. In my opinion, the same can be said for our government. The efficiency of the government and her departments is fully dependant of the input of an active group of players committing themselves to the same noble cause, improving Virtua. Positions like judge and teacher can be taken at the same time as many of the other professions, but still it is a fact that you need at least a group of about 10 players to achieve the minimum level of efficiency.

The solution for solving inefficiency of the government should not be sought in changing the law. The law preserves the most important values and customs most of the inhabitants feel most comfortable with. For example, having an educational system where you have to take an exam to acquire a degree needed for certain jobs maintains a level of professionalism in a country where we take things seriously. At this moment, we are the only country to do so and I think it is not coincidence that the larger part of the international jobs is held by experienced and valued Virtuans like Tuned, Mystq (CoV) and natcha12 (IC).

No, instead of changing the law, we need to guide new players into all the dimensions this game provides. We should contact our old friends who have been taking long holidays from the Miniconomy Federation. And above all, we should cherish everything our fellow Virtuans do for our shared cause.

Viva Virtua!
