HEADLINES: BLACKLIST SCANDAL INVOLVING FORMER UTC MEMBERS.
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - Certain former Company Members and Regimentals stepped forward admitting regret over a mistake made after facts came to light regarding the false positive ban over an innocent player that they mistook for someone else. As the individuals technically carried the mantle of UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company Members at the time, it would mean the responsibility is carried by the clan at the time for its members' gross mishandling of a case that is JUST NOT UP TO UTC STANDARDS. However, the victim was comforted by the fact that the "retards"(sic) have left.
The case began when discontented former 93rd Members revealed that they were responsible for setting off the events regarding an Empire Image of the Year 2020 Submission called "Insult to the Term Human Being", which contained the description:
A false positive ban on an innocent player showcases the results of the moral and technical incompetence of Shotbow. The message clearly directed at another player was instead being shoved unto some poor guy who literally does not know what the fuck is going on kek. Senior and experienced members and citizens who saw this after being bombarded by years of mismanagement stated that the Shotbow Community members are an "Insult to the term 'Human Being'" referring to their lacking of many facets that we consider "common sense", "compassion" or "basic intelligence". In contrast to the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company's Rule of Law wherein we are not prone to certainty, Shotbow admins have drawn that measure with their arrogance and feelings of infallibility at the cost of truth or justice.

What initially was a hilarious image showcasing the blatant and gross incompetence by Shotbow, was then turned into a disappointing and depressing nightmare of how far certain individuals in the Company had fallen when it came to UTC quality and standards. I'm glad ya'll have left because ya'll are a disgrace and stain to that uniform when you are prone to such mindboggingly braindead certainty.
HAVEN'T YOU LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT HOW PROPER JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO WORK? YESHUA OF NAZARETH.I swear to Christ, I am not at all happy. Even if it was working against me and it failed depressingly, the methods and standards are so poor, that thank God we are not out there for real because this is some war crimes and human rights violations or some shit. Like, I thought there'd be a respectable effort. But no, what we got was some guy's emotional retardation. Eli Eli, lamma sabbachtani.
It was fair to note, that some of them, though deciding to leave the UTC, have internalized a fair bit of honour and sense of responsibility and justice. Without them, we would not have known. Seeing them display rationality and responsibility made some TradUTC proud that day, the author included. He has learned modern CIVILIZED WESTERN REGUPEAN DEMOCRATIC RULE OF LAW. HE DESERVES TO BE FREE AND CARVE OUT HIS OWN RHODESIA.
That certain individual displays regret in his part for not doing enough to maintain proper standards and offers his sincere apologies to the victim. There was a counterpoint however, as the other individual responsible for the fiasco claimed that the regretful individual did not fully witness any drafts or the final report and that most of it was done out of voice chat without any written drafts and other such issues.
The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company however does maintain its own official regrets over the whole fiasco as internal issues and grievances had drawn a poor innocent guy under fire.
EDITORIAL - No Outsiders will Understand Us.
Irishkaiser - I was talking to a veteran Company Member the other day, and as you may know, a lot of our members are actual combat veterans and not just military. They have occupations were they knowingly put themselves within sustained fighting and this takes a toll. Some of us have had it worse, some of us have had it good. Shit, we could blend in the Star Wars cantina with our types.
Still, a lot of us have never even seen sustained combat, myself included. But even then, our culture and shared experiences seem to just... Click. It's like there's an innate understanding within each and every one of us certain types. Whenever I talk to those of us about certain situations or issues, they always say "You nailed it." "That's exactly right." "Yeah, that's how it really is." especially when we try to confront the moral and ethical weight of our actions.
And not just me. A lot of us as well who never seen actual or sustained combat can relate to them and understand(maybe not completely) what shit they're going through that they think everyone else cannot comprehend at all. I personally put it down to the military culture in the Company, wherein we adopt the mindset and organizational methods of militaries and their culture.
Of course, not a lot of us nowadays adhere to this, and some of us even abandoned this after being exposed to it. But it has proven to me that the bond and brotherhood forged in combat is something a lot of our veteran(in-game) men and women in the Clan share. We understand what it is like to face an enemy stronger or weaker than you, we understand the thrill, the machismo, the adrenaline the satisfaction of a plan going just right for once and the winner takes all competition between warriors - equals. More importantly the pressure, the stress, the disappointments, the doubts and the fears that plague anyone who has been in those situations. We know what it is like to be forced to do "the suck" because you have to, even when it doesn't seem like a benefit because it's for the great payoff if you do it. We know what it's like to just let go because you don't have to and we know what it's like to actually "not know" what's in front of you.
But it's no wonder a lot of the Lionhearted came to us. And why it seems not a lot of people could understand us or how we express our worldview. But we would never abandon any debil donut like that, because when we get down to it, we see a brother or a sister in each other that understands us or makes us better people everyday. Oozah.

DOMESTIC - 93RD "FINALIZES" "SEPARATION" - CONFUSING WORDING AND AMBIGUOUS TERMS LEAVES ISSUES UNSOLVED.
As former members of the 93rd Regiment announce their final terms, ambiguous and terrible wording left open many issues and interpretations, with everyone from all sides having their own interpretation of how separation occurs. Like, not joking, everyone agreed it was all confusing.
Particularly, the issue revolved around the 93rd Company Members who wished to retain their membership and 93rd Identity and the status of what is "93rd". GunOverdose insists that the Regiment disbanded, but the wording indicated no such thing and supporters of the amended version to satisfy their needs. He insisted that the leaving implied the "disbanding", but this did not take into account the complicated relationship between their "new group", which is what they also claim themselves to be. Not a clan, but just a group of friends who won't even have the 93rd name.
This new group in an amended version therefore is not the 93rd leaving, but members leaving the 93rd, which in legalese means that it's a separate group by ACTUAL LEGAL IMPLICATION. As was pointed out: Separation is not Disbanding and in addition adding a "new" group means a new identity and therefore they remove the 93rd identity in the first place.
Members of the Company brought it up in West-Ministry, but it was later stated by a TradUTC guy that they mostly don't care about this new group, and that their concerns are for their own constituents(Company Members). They also thought it would have been OK at first, since the other members aren't even 93rd anymore and that they won't even take the name "93rd", just a new group or some shit.
Separation is not disbanding, basically, but our constituents want to maintain their 93rd Identity out of pride and love for their regiment.
DOMESTIC - 93RD VETERANS AND RETIREES WISH TO SAVE THE REGIMENT
Certain Company Members of the currently in limbo 93rd Regiment of Virtues, including the retirees wish to retain the Regiment's position and roll in the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company.
Their concerns were brought up to Irishkaiser who assured them that their status, distinctions and identity will be recognized if they so wish it to be and will be protected under Company Law. He also assured that the Company will never put the wishes or interests of foreigners above its own people, but has also stated they will still attempt to be reasonable with any party they have disagreements with for the sake of common sense resolution.
Negotiations and planning are being discussed as how best to maintain this distinction. The option of leaving the 93rd completely was also put on the table, thus disbanding the regiment de jure, however it seems a bit aggressive for someone's home and identity to be taken away like that beyond their control. According to the author anyway.
DOMESTIC - HEAVY EUROPEANIZATION AS NEVER BEFORE
As the vast majority of Americans are leaving the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company, Europeans have gained an unprecedented dominance in the population ratio. As more and more Europeans are entering the Company, a tonal shift from perceived American stupidity of written and oral incompetence.
The Europeans were more exact, straightforward and even non-biased in their tones and explanations. I guess the old joke is true, when you will have a German best friend, he will tell you "You know, I used to not like you". Kek.
