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.)

- Ninogan's 1vs1melee/archery only Tournament on EU was a big success. Read up on the winners and matches in the forums.
.:: The battle for Agon ::.
Agon saw a big Clash on Cairn as well as solo player action all over the world.
The Cairn alliance disbanded, and in turn lead to the fact that there is no clan with more then one holding on the continent. It remains to be seen what happens in terms of alliance in that part of Agon.
The new and rebalanced Sea Fortress loot lead to a huge early morning fight at the northern tower. At least 7 ships were spotted from many different parties, including a big ship of the line, owned by SUN. They had the bigger guns and conquered Burning Glory, but we heard that many parties got away with epic loot.
NA saw big fights for the Sea Fortresses as well. You can relive it here through the eyes of Lords of Death:
Another heavy battle was fought over Bladethorpe hamlet. Check out some additional politics and discussion.

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!
.:: Around the forum ::.
- Our weekly pick from the suggestions forum is bmfof's post titled "A working bounty system?". Keep in mind that this doesn't mean that this suggestion will be implemented. We just really liked the fact that it's a well thought out idea that takes into account as many variables as possible and analyzes them in a very constructive way.
We are always happy to see the community be so eager and willing to contribute.
