As with our in game Chaos Chests you'll never know what you get!
It's hard to keep up with updates and interesting happenings in game and around the forums. But fret not, the community liaisons are here to help.
We will recap on a regular basis to make sure you don't miss any important information.
Additionally we will pick a few examples of the many interesting reads around the forums. (If you think a specific thread or event is worth mentioning contact any of the liaisons. Keep in mind though that we are looking at suggestions directly on the forums, there is no need to send links about them to make a stronger point.)

- NA-1 also saw an exciting 2vs2 Tournament. The first to be hosted and organized, after the game changes, by Indestructible Specimen and his clan Vigilante. For results check out the corresponding thread here.
.:: The battle for Agon ::.
The politics on both EU-1 and NA-1 might be influenced by the fact that several long-time clans are either upping up their member count or are back and kicking in the game.
Big fight last Sunday on the Burning Glory fortress. SUN wanted revenge from DPS for sinking their Ship-Of-The-Line with their Frigate, so another identical battle was going full-on. Meanwhile though, 5Z managed to sneak-capture the fortress while the 2 bigger forces were fighting each other, netting over 300 rare ore for their members!
Also, last night SUN declared a siege on Silmiyat, a hamlet they had conquered before but lost to ANG. They hope to take it back, but ANG will definitely not make this an easy job for them.
On the American servers, the new hot issue is the comeback of The Mercs. The Mercs have definitely left their mark on EU-1, as one of the strongest (and most vocal) guilds in the early-mid days of EU-1, and now everyone is waiting to see what’s up their sleeve for their comeback on NA-1.
We are interested in finding neutral players who would like to work with us on a weekly basis to update the community on general war happenings on both servers. You can send a pm to any of the community liaison if you are interested. Please state why you would be a good candidate to comment and update us on happenings we might miss. Thank you!
