Moving up in the eWorld

Day 1,977, 21:31 Published in USA USA by Clint Carmel

Today's article will be brief. I just wanted to talk about the change in format. And about changes in general, both in myself and in the eUSA around me.

Rising circulation.

First all of, I'm please to announce that this paper is moving up in circulation. Not as rapidly as some; not as slow as others. But good enough so that today 'Musings from Cheyenne Mountain' went from being a top-500 newspaper to a top-400 newspaper. At this rate, I can actually consider going for a Media Mogul achievement in early June.

Rising in the Party

Secondly.. as to format, I have decided that eUSA doesn't need 10 Federalist Newspapers coming out every day; people are liable to tune out due to saturation, and it will all become white noise. At this point, I need not prove my bona fides as a Fed; one of the first things Enter Awesome did as Party President was promote me.

And, if you haven't seen it, yesterday I won the Fed Golden Newbie award.
Clint wins Fed Awards (And a Journalism award for this paper. You know that's going into this paper's Wiki page. You know it.)

Return to 'first steps.'

And so I am going to return to doing what I do best, and that is focusing on helpful tips for new players, and on general observations about the game world.

For example, there are roughly 57 parties in the eUSA. That's 56 more than in eSaudi Arabia. And there have been seismic shifts in the virtual reality this last month. It may have started with the 6th Party Coalition, but now there are massive population shifts going on inside the parties. To use just one example, USWP has easily gained 100 members since the last Congressional election. In the coming days I'll be talking about this and other things I've seen.

And not just nationally. The eUSA is now a formal member of CoT. That will change things up around the world. International politics is my weakest area, but I'll give my perspective (as a new player) on what I think is going on.


Finally, I will mention the obvious for anyone who hasn't seen it: I have changed my military unit affiliation-- and of course my avatar to match.

I am probably one of the strongest guys in Division 1... but it's only Division 1, so I simply don't expect my output to matter very much. I just don't bring anything to the table beyond a chance to fight for 1 point out of 83. This is easily proven by the fact that I don't even have one Battle Hero medal yet.

And so I've decided that as a new player, it's best for everyone if I just hang out with the Military Unit of my party.


As always, thanks for reading. It is having loyal and dedicated readers that has brought me to this point (as opposed to the fake newspapers that have 4,000 and 8,000 'readers' but no articles) and I thank you. As I wrote last week, my goal with this paper has always been to put out a quality paper worth reading; you may not always agree with my focus or opinion, but I do strive to write from a place of community.
