Bounty Hunters!

The great bounty hunters are gone!
Yes they have been replacing by an npc system, so they are no longer player runned. Some people find this as a bad thing, but after talking to some people they have agreed its alright. Here are some comments on some era players.

Vman13x: What do you think about on the removal of Bounty Hunters?
Pusherman: Well, I think its kinda unfair because they shut down bher, but not ppa, and bher was doing good, or atleast as good as ppa.
Vman13x: Do you like the new system or the old system better?
Pusherman: Well, I never really used the old system because sometimes bher members could not get the job done, but now with the new system if I put a 1k bounty on someone, I know they will get killed for the money because of the money and experience of the 150hp thing if I put 10k on someone I would have half of era running to get the bounty money, so yea, the new system is kinda better, letting players in on the action.
Vman13x: Alright pusherman thank you for your time :).

Neo Tech

This massive building was opened, Neo Tech sells high-tech weaponry. Right now they only sell the Neo Rifle (does 40dmg) and the Osiris minigun.
Neo Tech is currently owned by Gabriel(Sinkler).

Events Team Updates.

As Maverick became the ETA (Events Team Admin), many things happened in the Events Administration, a lot of events were developed such as new Gravity races, Gas chamber, Explosive chance and more!

Also, Events prices were changed, they introduced a new “Heli-Bomb” which is a flying guided bomb that you can control where you want it to go (2ECs for 6)! And the “Nuke” A bomb you can drop anywhere you like on the map and it kills anyone within a large radius!(8Ecs).

Gang gun removal!

Sales announced randomly that the gang guns were removed, and everyone who had one got 35k back. The news caused era player to be a little confused as to why they were removed. Sales also said that he had his reasons to remove the gang guns, and was planning on doing it for sometime now.
After interviewing an era player
Vman13x: What are your views on the removal of gang guns?
Xen: Well, I think that it was a waste of time. Sales removed it because it wasnt fair to others, but I think otherwise. Gang guns were one of those things gangs had that were special. It was a big mistake.
Vman13x: Since gang guns are gone, are the raids less interesting or more?
Xen: Less interesting. It was pretty cool watching each gang vs another gang with their own unique weapon. Its now just the same. Deagles vs SD cannons vs angels, ect.
Vman13x: Did the gang guns affect the raids?
Xen: Not at all, but made them more interesting!
Vman13x: Alright xen thanks for your time.

Just a quick comment as I don't really play Era... but when I was browsing through the post, at first glance the second image looked greyscale lol... it did in the second and third glance, as well.

Nice to see you're still doing this :) I know it's hard to do now, but we haven't forgotten about the system; it's one or two items down on my todo: list.

08-14-2009, 01:25 PM
Cool news, I enjoyed reading them, like real newspapers (with a video included XD)

real newspapers (with a video included XD)

Daily Prophet, anyone?

Exept one thing, why interview Xen and Pusher?
Why not interview a Leader of a gang and leader of Bher?

Thats the exact reason. The point of newspapers is to actually interview random people. Its different point of views and what not.

You should interview multiple "random people" with different opinions. Otherwise you might come of as biased (or just lazy).

Nice work though

08-15-2009, 01:34 AM
interview me next time. I'll give a totally non opinionated and unbiased answer.

08-15-2009, 04:14 AM
Ya sorry about that guys, I was originally going to do 3 people for each, but then sometimes I cant paste everything, and at the time I wasnt thinking lol. Next time I will do that :). Again sorry.

08-15-2009, 10:15 AM
DT has a point.
Might want to be more selective of your guests, three sides of each situation. Two Relative Guests, and one Unbiased one :D.

These little things are always fun to read haha. It'll be nice when we get it set up on Era.
