CITY 17, WASTED - After a bitter struggle that ended in Opposing Team Independent’s capture of the Diamond objective, St.Veracity avenged the 222nd’s honor by immediately JUMPING OFF A TALL BUILDING AND KILLING THE DIAMOND-BEARER TAKING COVER ON THE TOP FLOORS OF THE SANDSTONE BUILDING MID-FLIGHT AS THE ROUND ENDED AND THE SERVER RESTARTED.
The sheer act of badassery will be rewarded accordingly as this amazing deed will be given its just due with the presentation of the highest honor the Unknown [?] Clan can give: The Medal of the Knight’s of the Order of Spyware.
Congratulations, Saint Veracity Orc-Heart, you bring more glory to the regiment and its banners.
Irishkaiser - The re-normalization of relations between MineZ’s community and I, the Rebel Son, paves the way for future cooperation and understanding between our two cliques. However, some still don’t know why I did what I did in the past and some accuse me simply as being a heartless asshole trying to assert his dominance over the internet. Understandable since I’ve provoked not too coherent reactions from supposedly “intelligent” individuals in the past.
The answer isn’t exactly simple. It was a complex series of events that built up, whether coincidental or on purpose, it made me take my radical stance against the elitist premium establishment, but if it were simply put into one word as to what I felt during all the tense times of mutual distrust and cold disposition to the premium MineZ elite, it was loneliness - being the last of my kind. Obviously, I’ve procured quite a following for myself and became a symbol to some and a curse to others(which in the past I took pride in). It is a wonder that I would run out of people to talk to, no. I have PLENTY of people to talk to and those willing to listen to the enunciation of truths, but no that is not the loneliness I’m talking about. Maybe romantic loneliness, but that is another story.
To begin my tale, let me first tell you where I came from, where YOU came from, where we all came from as players of the game. Where we all started: the public MineZ servers. You and I were just like any other white-named bloke, just trying to survive and have some fun - whether you bandit or you heal, as long as you had fun in the game and its mechanics. This is where I started, this is the game that you once knew or still know. Whoever you are reading this, I hope you didn’t forget or don’t forget the game as it once was before you bought premium and started going on the reddit or forums or talking to the staff for it is where many, like you and me, begin our journeys.
Since the Company started, our market was always the public South and so we have a vested interest in seeing the public South happy and prosperous, welcoming newer players and sending familiars back North after they died. It was also from the Southerners who formed the bulk of the eyechat and from the eyechat came COMMUNITY. Not the aristocratic, ass-kissing tournament of the MineZ reddit, but a group of people who visited the same servers and hoped to see the same people and just hang out and have fun.
It was from here(US11) I met my first friends and the first members of the Company. The majority of our membership wasn’t premium but that didn’t matter, we didn’t need to go to PvE to get shit done or to have fun, we had everything we needed in friends and people willing to help us because we made friends. They were many good, honest men. Far more virtuous and vigilant than what I can say about the damned nobility.
The first premium I met on the eyechat was user cassmich1 and those of you who know our history already know how well this went. What most of you don’t know is what caused our feud. It was the apparent murder of one of my friends - iigraysquirrel. In cold fucking blood. Gray was a good, honest man who was betrayed by cassmich1 and paul250 in our own domain. After asking her to explain for her actions she retorted, and I quote:
“Hahah, I’m friends with the admins.”
Which of course was proven when admin Jacsebalon came into the server and started fooling around near her general area which I was in. Now to any of you fucks reading this right now, I want you all to know Gray was my SHINING STAR. He was one of the bravest men I’ve ever known and his strength of character was extraordinarily upright considering where he comes from. I would be willing to DIE for that man.
And so the feud between me and cassmich1 continued over the course of two months, culminating in her being caught with duped Power II bows after an encounter with WholeMilk and his gang. We thought we had her and would finally free the many, countless people she’s harassed with her conceited attitude and her supposed “immunity”.
We had a plan though since we took her threat of “knowing” the admins as actual fact and we were actually WARNED BY OTHER PLAYERS THAT IT WAS TRUE. We were to avoid every other admin except GuardenGnome who was apparently a “cool” admin or something. Unfortunately, Smyly accidentally spilled the news over and then he reported that “Jacsebalon really had her back” or something.
Which crushed me. It actually made me realize that there was an unfair, unjust and terrible abuse of system between favored players and the staff. It made me believe that the admins didn’t care about the common player except the ones they knew. And from there I was started to be filled with hate(coming from the Unknown [?] Clan, teaching fundamental equality and fair justice to all, bias is a mortal sin to us). Hate was building in my world, it taught me how to live, how to eat, how to breathe. I thought I’d quit the game with all the hate inside me…
TO BE CONTINUED
The Company successfully delivered a total of
5 Chain Sets
3 Infinity Bows
6 Iron Swords
In value exchange of
20 Health Potions
The directory proudly confirms that this trade run has been one of the most unexpectedly successful trade runs especially since the server started off with below 50 population that quickly grew over time. Because of the unexpected turnout in the end, the Company had a sale where it sold Chain sets for 3 potions instead of 4.
Other than that, it was just a good trade run.
Whoop-tee-fucking-do, it’s the greatest thing since sliced fucking bread. So what?
Old news, actually.
ORDERS FOR THE WEEK:
1) Trade Run finished. Everyone is on leave
2) Actually, nothing really. Fartabstract’s got everything covered. Wow…
