HEADLINES: EMPIRE IMAGE OF THE YEAR VOTING BEGINS
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - The Empire Image of the Year 2019 Votes begins. The current candidates are:
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, premiums be like “no change bad” and a whole mess ensues.
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.
COMPANYWAVE by OneZedArmy - apparently, BECAUSE IT’S COOL… Or whatever. Not kidding, that’s why.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Irishkaiser - The Christmas Party of 2019 where the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company publicly unveiled(at least to itself) the New Industries to the Partygoers, the future of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company, well-received but at the same time awe’d at their INABILITY TO CONTRIBUTE to the GLORIOUS PROWESS OF THE EMPIRE.
We now have cars and shit, basically.
So vote what you think impacted the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company the most this year. You can also vote more than once.
EDITORIAL - I hired someone to write this part.
GreyWolf64 - I’ll replace this when he’s finished with his editorial.

Potions and Shit
A very lovely trade run where we were greeted and surprised BY PURE FUCKING CHANCE ON THAT SAME DAY AND IN THAT HOUR, running into a VERY VERY old friend. Also a special trade run where we were supposed to sell grapples and speed potions. The old friend was picked up by a nearby Company Member who was ecstatic to have him back and personally led him to the caravan himself so they could reminisce about the old times.
Unfortunately, they ran into a bunch of random premiums and were killed before they reached the safety of the caravan. Their deaths however were not in vain for their discovery of the premiums allowed the Company ample opportunity to evacuate with all the customers in the nearby area and sell shit elsewhere.
The old friend decided to take part in the trade run, ONE MORE TIME and joined the scouts in harassing and driving away about from reports counted seven full irons. Perhaps the volcano in the Philippines that delayed the trade run was quite fortunate after all, for if we were on time, maybe we wouldn’t have gotten to meet a proud veteran.
In addition, Commonwealth members not only joined the trade run as participants, but also to sell their own shit because they were inspired by UTC or whatever.
On the downside: communication was still warbly as SOME PEOPLE were not in voice chat and you had to communicate with customers and CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS by manually private messaging or talking publicly.
And lastly, NOBODY WANTS NOBODY FUCKING LIKES SPEED POTIONS AND GRAPPLES. For some strange reason, the only shit people buy down south is Iron/Chain Armor and then weapons like Iron Swords. Not even enchanted good durability, fucking FULL DURABILITY IRON SWORDS. They ignore everything else… FUCKING GRAPPLES AND SPEED POTION, DAMN IT. WHY DO THEY NOT WANT THAT?
