SERVER NEWS

> The Brussels Heist features a harder robbery system, however it requires great teamwork to execute and has a two hour global cooldown. The payout is around $900,000-$1,000,000 in total gets divided equally amongst the contestants. The video below shows the first Brussels Heist. While it is not the most efficient way of doing it, it can be a good tutorial for first timers.

> Bond Sales have gone down in the past month as the demand increases and the supply goes down. The prices had already grown from 3 million to 3.3 million but since recent times, with virtually no people donating for others, the bond prices are flying high. The cheapest bonds at the moment are being “auctioned” for a minimum of 4 million. It might not be long before Peter’s 10 million per bond price becomes the actual price of bonds. Kar, for the first time in years, is showing the signs of the need for money to run the server. The Cluckin’ Times requests the players to donate frequently to keep the server alive.

> There have been plenty of late setjails and setwarns in the server. These are being caused by the malfunctioning of Anonymous, the irc bot. According to multiple administrators, the setjails and setwarns were scheduled on the day the verdicts for complaints were announced and that Anonymous hadn’t been performing properly, causing many players to never get jailed or warned and some others being punished for multiple times.

S.W.A.T.

> Recently, there have been several cases of SWAT Applicants being caught for not reading the handbook, even though they have said they read the handbook. Please read everything on the SWAT handbook before applying for SWAT.

> The Grand Theft Autolympics IV was hosted this weekend by Clucky.

During the 2 days of the Autolympics, xXSlayDriver1Xx was the host and entertained many as the autolympics was ongoing. Axe_pidy joined on the 2nd day, relieving xXSlayDriver1Xx solo job as a host. They were indeed entertaining and led to more enjoyment during the Autolympics. The video below shows a boxing match between ShjnE and axe_pidy, with xXSlayDriver1Xx commentating.

> 5 events were cancelled, namely Vortex Throw, Golf, Tow Throw, Sailing, Triple Jump and Fencing. These events had streaming issues that resulted in players seeing the results in different location, hence producing an unreliable result. However, it was still a fun experience for those who tried!

You did, just probably didn't notice it upon login because you need to type /alert upon login to notice it. Everyone was given their prize with the exception of Yezpahr.
