HEADLINES: EMPIRE IMAGE OF THE YEAR CONTENDERS 2019
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - The Annual Empire Image of the Year was finally given out with the following contenders to be showcased in a special Magazine edition later this month… I hope it’s this month anyway. Also a first. An entire thread making it to Image of the Year… Because why the fuck not?
BROKEN Gear-Up by PrayForMineZ - I just wanted to get this one out of the way first. Yadda yadda.
Civilized Traders by Irishkaiser - Two Commonwealth Members demonstrate their civility by refraining from picking up all items and simply dropping them on the floor, showcasing the amount of respect and trust between them and its importance in the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company to have a separate, reliable market for trading independent of Shotbow mainstream. The context for this scene is that the buyer wanted like only one armor piece, but could not decide which. The merchant gives out the pieces on the floor, trusting the customer to not steal. “ABSOLUTELY CIVILIZED” says one conservative old man who prefers to stick with his own kind of people.
Alt Memery by RisingThumb - A compiled list of responses showcasing the relations between admins and premiums which in this year has led to both camps realizing they are detrimental to each other. Shotbow Staff announces new policy or change,
We Will Bury Them Realized by GunOverdose(at least the first time this was screenshotted) - A screenshot showcasing the realization of the We Will Bury Them Policy, wherein the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company supports or creates situations wherein it would “trap” and “bury” premiums into this game for as long as possible with real world damage(usually monetary value and unnecessary time spent), while getting good individuals out of it.
In a feedback loop, it would sustain HighlifeTTU to pay for the server while at the same time maximizing misery for those involved resulting in a win-win situation for both the Clan, and the Top-Level Staff of the game. Shadowhall and Paluster Admin Bunker side by side.
Splendor by Irishkaiser - There were many frequent parties this year, each one compensating from all the removal of fun mechanics in MineZ like fireworks and stuff like that, via creative ways of partying. Some cringe like pretending to drink in-game.
On the Polish Streamer and the Server by OneZedArmy - After Shotbow invited a Polish streamer that encountered a distasteful experience in the Community, OneZedArmy, a European player of Spanish origin, posted two separate experiences, once again putting the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company in the limelight. However, the results of the discussion according to him were misconstrued by the admins as their defense of them, which got a greenlight support, but they tolerated deviating from the discussion in order to defend them rather than acknowledge the very meat of the thread which was that the premiums freaking sucked.
Guess that’s why it’s up there.
Yeah more to come if I remember or find any that are significant. Hopefully we can churn something out by end of the month.
EDITORIAL - Forgetting What you are gonna write about but you thought you had it.
Irishkaiser - I had a huge topic on my head. I swear to God it’s on the tip of my tongue but I literally just forgot it last moment.

The Directory proudly announces that it has cancelled the Trade Run for Vacation. Work begins after this week’s over.

DOMESTIC - AVVER GIVES ENDORSEMENT TO NEW INDUSTRIES
Whatchugunna do, watchugonna do when he codes for you. Av boys av boys.
DOMESTIC - OLD MAN EXPOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Irishkaiser was exposed by whistleblower RisingThumb last Christmas, embarrassing the old man in a humiliating scandal of epic proportions. The old man’s attempts to deny the situation were hysterical.
By attempting to tamper with evidence and bribing others to say the opposite, he was arrested on obstruction of Justice. The courts however found he was not found guilty of anything because being a pervert and an asshole was not necessarily a crime and that he did not actually commit any real sexual harassment. On Christmas Day as well, what a bunch of fucking wankers, I swear to God. Stop destroying the sanctity of the Boy’s Locker Room you fucking twats. WE KEEP EVERYTHING IN LOCKER ROOM TALK YOU CUNTS.
DOMESTIC - SELFIES MOVEMENT GREW IN SUPPORT
The Grassroots Selfies Movement in the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company Discord based around importing REDMATZOO’S ideas. But the actual numbers are:
3 Against, 4 For, 2 Neutral.
FINANCE - OIL AND OIL DEPENDENT MARKETS DOWN. PHILIPPINES IS A OK.
Don’t worry, that negotiation between US and China saved the Philippine market. Man it would have sucked if we played the UAE or whatever.
1) LEISURE WEEK NEXT WEEK ___
