Why aren’t the Wall Street criminals prosecuted? Days after JPMorgan Chase’s Jamie Dimon revealed that his bank had lost billions in speculative bets, Obama publicly defended the billionaire CEO, calling him “one of the smartest bankers we’ve got.” What he didn't mention is that Dimon is a criminal.

A new age of SPACs and IPOs is upon us

I have seen some hate on the recent surge in SPACs and fervor in buying them. These people often cite previous SPAC pitfalls, but let's keep in mind there is a totally refurbished focus on companies SPACs are looking to acquire. Previously, a company being acquired by a SPAC was exercising its last resort to get to public markets to raise capital. In recent times, talented and famed investors are getting behind innovative and exciting companies. They are targeting market changers and market creators.
SPCE- it is speculative but they have a massive pipeline of business ready to go once they begin flights.
NKLA- they haven't delivered a vehicle, but investors are trying to figure out who will be best positioned to capitalize on EV adoption besides Tesla.
DraftKings- sports betting is becoming more popular as the days pass
These types of acquisitions are just the beginning of what I think will be a revolution of the IPO process. Consider the speed and cost savings of doing a SPAC deal with a talented group of investors such as Chamath or Ackman. Even if we move beyond SPACs, consider the direct listing process that Spotify and Slack executed. Cheaper, faster, and better valuation.
Investment bankers leave a TON of money on the table mis-pricing IPOs. This is detrimental to founders who do not get their liquidation event, and to the business which does get to raise the maximum amount of capital.
I spent a short time working at a boutique investment bank in 2018, and the Managing Directors I worked under were excited about the number of funded SPACs looking for deals, specifically in the tech sector. There were a lot of conversations about SPAC deal flow increasing around higher quality unicorn type companies. A day of reckoning is upon us in the IPO process. There is a MASSIVE premium placed on companies that are disruptors.
Blue Chips with slow top-line growth, stock buyback inflated EPS #'s, and greedy management are no longer the focus of investors. Instead, innovators with solid revenue growth and a path to profitability are high flying in today's equity markets. The next generation of innovative companies will recognize these points and work with high profile SPACs to get cash quickly and cheaply. Gear up!

The Mouthbreather's Guide to the Galaxy

The Mouthbreather's Guide to the Galaxy
Alright CYKAS, Drill Sgt. Retarded TQQQ Burry is in the house. Listen up, I'm gonna train yo monkey asses to make some motherfucking money.

“Reeee can’t read, strike?” - random_wsb_autist
Bitch you better read if you want your Robinhood to look like this:
gainz, bitch


Why am I telling you this?
Because I like your dumb asses. Even dickbutts like cscqb4. And because I like seeing Wall St. fucking get rekt. Y’all did good until now, and Wall St. is salty af. Just google for “retail traders” news if you haven’t seen it, and you’ll see the salty tears of Wall Street assholes. And I like salty Wall St. assholes crying like bitches.
https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/retail-investors-are-crushing-hedge-funds-again

That said, some of you here are really motherfucking dense & the sheer influx of retardation has been driving away some of the more knowledgeable folks on this sub. In fact, in my last post, y'all somehow managed to downvote to shit the few guys that really understood the points I was making and tried to explain it to you poo-slinging apes. Stop that shit yo! A lot of you need to sit the fuck down, shut your fucking mouth and listen.
So I'm going to try and turn you rag-tag band of dimwits into a respectable army of peasants that can clap some motherfucking Wall Street cheeks. Then, I'm going to give you a mouthbreather-proof trade that I don't think even you knuckleheads can mess up (though I may be underestimating you).
If you keep PM-ing me about your stupid ass losses after this, I will find out where you live and personally, PERSONALLY, shit on your doorstep.
This is going to be a long ass post. Read the damned post. I don't care if you're dyslexic, use text-to-speech. Got ADHD? Pop your addys, rub one out, and focus! Are you 12? Make sure to go post in the paper trading contest thread first.

THE RULES:
  1. Understand that most of this sub has the critical reading skills of a 6 year old and the attention span of a goldfish. As such, my posts are usually written with a level of detail aimed at the lowest common denominator. A lot of details on the thesis are omitted, but that doesn't mean that the contents in the post are all there is to it. If I didn't do that, every post'd have to be longer than this one, and 98% of you fucks wouldn't read it anyway. Fuck that.
  2. Understand that my style of making plays is finding the >10+ baggers that are underpriced. As such, ALL THE GOD DAMN PLAYS I POST ARE HIGH-RISK / HIGH-REWARD. Only play what you can afford to risk. And stop PM-ing me the second the market goes the other way, god damn it! If you can't manage your own positions, I'm going to teach your ass the basics.
  3. Do you have no idea what you're doing and have a question? Google it first. Then google it again. Then Bing it, for good measure. Might as well check PornHub too, you never know. THEN, if you still didn't find the answer, you ask.
  4. This sub gives me Tourette's. If you got a problem with that, well fuck you.

This shit is targeted at the mouthbreathers, but maybe more knowledgeable folk’ll find some useful info, idk. How do you know if you’re in the mouthbreather category? If your answer to any of the following questions is yes, then you are:
  • Are you new to trading?
  • Are you unable to manage your own positions?
  • Did you score into the negatives on the SAT Critical Reading section?
  • Do you think Delta is just an airline?
  • Do you buy high & sell low?
  • Do you want to buy garbage like Hertz or American Airlines because it's cheap?
  • Did you buy USO at the bottom and are now proud of yourself for making $2?
  • Do you think stOnKs oNLy Go uP because Fed brrr?
  • Do you think I'm trying to sell you puts?
  • If you take a trade you see posted on this sub and are down, do you PM the guy posting it?
  • Do you generally PM people on this sub to ask them basic questions?
  • Is your mouth your primary breathing apparatus?
Well I have just the thing for you!

Chapter I - Maybe, just maybe, I know what I’m talking about
I'm not here to rip you off. Every fucking time I post something, a bunch of dumbasses show up saying I'm selling you puts or whatever the fuck retarded thoughts come through their caveman brains.
"hurr durr OP retarded, OP sell puts" - random_wsb_autist
Sit down, Barney, I'm not here to scam you for your 3 cents on OTM puts. Do I always get it right? Of course not, dumbasses. Eurodollar play didn't work out (yet). Last TQQQ didn't work out (yet). That’s just how it goes. Papa Buffet got fucked on airlines. Plain retard Burry bought GME. What do you fucking expect?
Meanwhile, I keep giving y'all good motherfucking plays:
  1. 28/10/2019: "I'ma say this again, in case you haven't heard me the first time. BUY $JNK PUTS NOW!". Strike: "11/15, 1/17 and 6/19". "This thing can easily go below 50, so whatever floats your boat. Around $100 strike is a good entry point."
  2. 3/9/2020: "I mean it's a pretty obvious move, but $JNK puts."
  3. 3/19/2020, 12pm: "UVXY put FDs are free money." & “Buy $UVXY puts expiring tomorrow if we're still green at 3pm. Trust me.”
  4. 3/24/2020: “$UUP 3/27 puts at $27.5 or $27 should be 10-baggers once the bill passes. I'd expect it to go to around $26.”
And of course, the masterpiece that was the TQQQ put play.
Chapter II. Post-mortem of the February - March 2020 Great Depression
Do you really understand what happened? Let's go through it.
I got in puts on 2/19, right at the motherfucking top, TQQQ at $118. I told you on 2/24 TQQQ ($108) was going to shit, and to buy fucking puts, $90ps, $70ps, $50ps, all the way to 3/20 $30ps. You think I just pulled that out of my ass? You think I just keep getting lucky, punks? Do you have any idea how unlikely that is?
Well, let's take a look at what the fuckstick Kevin Cook from Zacks wrote on 3/5:
How Many Sigmas Was the Flash Correction Plunge?
"Did you know that last week's 14% plunge in the S&P 500 SPY was so rare, by statistical measures, that it shouldn't happen once but every 14,000 years?"
"By several measures, it was about a 5-sigma move, something that's not "supposed to" happen more than once in your lifetime -- or your prehistoric ancestors' lifetimes!
"According to general statistical principles, a 4-sigma event is to be expected about every 31,560 days, or about 1 trading day in 126 years. And a 5-sigma event is to be expected every 3,483,046 days, or about 1 day every 13,932 years."

On 3/5, TQQQ closed at $81. I just got lucky, right? You should buy after a 5-sigma move, right? That's what fuckstick says:
"Big sigma moves happen all the time in markets, more than any other field where we collect and analyze historical data, because markets are social beasts subject to "wild randomness" that is not found in the physical sciences.
This was the primary lesson of Nassim Taleb's 2007 book The Black Swan, written before the financial crisis that found Wall Street bankers completely ignorant of randomness and the risks of ruin."
I also took advantage of the extreme 5-sigma sell-off by grabbing a leveraged ETF on the Nasdaq 100, the ProShares UltraPro QQQ TQQQ. In my plan, while I might debate the merits of buying AAPL or MSFT for hours, I knew I could immediately buy them both with TQQQ and be rewarded very quickly after the 14% plunge."
Ahahaha, fuckstick bought TQQQ at $70, cuz that's what you do after a random 5-sigma move, right? How many of you dumbasses did the same thing? Don't lie, I see you buying 3/5 on this TQQQ chart:
https://preview.redd.it/9ks35zdla5151.png?width=915&format=png&auto=webp&s=2c90d08494c52a1b874575ee233624e61ac27620
Meanwhile, on 3/3, I answered the question "Where do you see this ending up at in the next couple weeks? I have 3/20s" with "under 30 imo".

Well good fucking job, because a week later on 3/11, TQQQ closed at $61, and it kept going.
Nomura: Market staring into the abyss
"The plunge in US equities yesterday (12 March) pushed weekly returns down to 7.7 standard deviations below the norm. In statistical science, the odds of a greater-than seven-sigma event of this kind are astronomical to the point of being comical (about one such event every 160 billion years).
Let's see what Stephen Mathai-Davis, CFA, CQF, WTF, BBQ, Founder and CEO of Q.ai - Investing Reimagined, a Forbes Company, and a major fucktard has to say at this point:

"Our AI models are telling us to buy SPY (the SPDR S&P500 ETF and a great proxy for US large-cap stocks) but since all models are based on past data, does it really make sense? "
"While it may or may not make sense to buy stocks, it definitely is a good time to sell “volatility.” And yes, you can do it in your brokerage account! Or, you can ask your personal finance advisor about it."
"So what is the takeaway? I don’t know if now is the right time to start buying stocks again but it sure looks like the probabilities are in your favor to say that we are not going to experience another 7 standard deviation move in U.S. Stocks. OTM (out-of-the-money) Put Spreads are a great way to get some bullish exposure to a rally in the SPY while also shorting such rich volatility levels."
Good job, fuckfaces. Y'all bought this one too, admit it. I see you buying on this chart:

Well guess what, by 3/18, a week later, we did get another 5 standard deviation move. TQQQ bottomed on 3/18 at $32.73. Still think that was just luck, punk? You know how many sigmas that was? Over 12 god-damn sigmas. 12 standard deviations. I'd have a much better chance of guessing everyone's buttcoin private key, in a row, on the first try. That's how unlikely that is.
https://preview.redd.it/luz0s3kbb5151.png?width=587&format=png&auto=webp&s=7542973d56c42e13efd3502331ac6cc5aea42630
"Hurr durr you said it's going to 0, so you're retarded because it didn't go to 0" - random_wsb_autist
Yeah, fuckface, because the Fed bailed ‘em out. Remember the $150b “overnight repo” bazooka on 3/17? That’s what that was, a bailout. A bailout for shitty funds and market makers like Trump's handjob buddy Kenny Griffin from Citadel. Why do you think Jamie Dimon had a heart attack in early March? He saw all the dogshit that everyone put on his books.

Yup, everyone got clapped on their stupidly leveraged derivatives books. It seems Citadel is “too big to fail”. On 3/18, the payout on 3/20 TQQQ puts alone if it went to 0 was $468m. And every single TQQQ put expiration would have had to be paid. Tens or hundreds of billions on TQQQ puts alone. I’d bet my ass Citadel was on the hook for a big chunk of those. And that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to all the other blown derivative trades out there.

https://preview.redd.it/9ww27p2qb5151.png?width=2485&format=png&auto=webp&s=78f24265f3ea08fdbb37a4325f15ad9b61b0c694
Y’all still did good, 3/20 closed at $35. That’s $161m/$468m payoff just there. I even called you the bottom on 3/17, when I saw that bailout:

"tinygiraffe21 1 point 2 months ago
Haha when? I’m loading up in 4/17 25 puts"
"dlkdev
Scratch that, helicopter money is here."
"AfgCric 1 point 2 months ago
What does that mean?"
"It means the Fed & Trump are printing trillions with no end in sight. If they go through with this, this was probably the bottom."

"hurr durr, it went lower on 3/18 so 3/17 wasn't the bottom" - random_wsb_autist
Idiot, I have no way of knowing that Billy boy Ackman was going to go on CNBC and cry like a little bitch to make everyone dump, so he can get out of his shorts. Just like I have no way of knowing when the Fed decides to do a bailout. But you react to that, when you see it.
Do you think "Oh no world's ending" and go sell everything? No, dumbass, you try to figure out what Billy's doing. And in this case it was pretty obvious, Billy saw the Fed train coming and wanted to close his shorts. So you give the dude a hand, quick short in and out, and position for Billy dumping his short bags.
Video of Billy & the Fed train

Here's what Billy boy says:
“But if they don’t, and the government takes the right steps, this hedge could be worth zero, and the stock market could go right back up to where it was. So we made the decision to exit.”
https://www.businessinsider.sg/bill-ackman-explains-coronavirus-trade-single-best-all-time-podcast-2020-5
Also, “the single best trade of all time.” my ass, it was only a 100-bagger. I gave y’all a 150-bagger.
So how could I catch that? Because it wasn't random, yo. And I'm here to teach your asses how to try to spot such potential moves. But first, the technical bootcamp.

Chapter III. Mouthbreather's bootcamp on managing a position – THE TECHNICALS

RULE 1. YOU NEVER BUY OPTIONS AT OPEN. You NEVER OVERPAY for an option. You never FOMO into buying too fast. You NEVER EVER NEVER pump the premium on a play.
I saw you fuckers buying over 4k TQQQ 5/22 $45 puts in the first minutes of trading. You pumped the premium to over $0.50 dudes. The play's never going to work if you do that, because you give the market maker free delta, and he's going to hedge that against you. Let me explain simply:

Let's say a put on ticker $X at strike $50 is worth $1, and a put at strike $51 is worth $2.
If you all fomo in at once into the same strike, the market maker algos will just pull the asks higher. If you overpay at $2 for the $50p, the market maker will just buy $51ps for $2 and sell you $50ps for 2$. Or he'll buy longer-dated $50ps and sell you shorter-dated $50ps. Max risk for him is now 0, max gain is $1. You just gave him free downside insurance, so of course he's going to start going long. And you just traded against yourself, congrats.

You need to get in with patience, especially if you see other autists here wanting to go in at the same time. Don't step on each other's toes. You put in an order, and you wait for it to fill for a couple of seconds. If it doesn't fill, AND the price of the option hasn't moved much recently, you can bump the bid $0.01. And you keep doing that a few times. Move your strikes, if needed. Only get a partial fill or don't get a fill at all? You cancel your bid. Don't fucking leave it hanging there, or you're going to put a floor on the price. Let the mm algos chill out and go again later.

RULE 2. WATCH THE TIME. Algos are especially active at x:00, x:02, x:08, x:12, x:30 and x:58. Try not to buy at those times.
RULE 3. YOU USE MULTIPLE BROKERS. Don't just roll with Robinhood, you're just gimping yourself. If you don't have another one, open up a tasty, IB, TD, Schwab, whatever. But for cheap faggy puts (or calls), Robinhood is the best. If you want to make a play for which the other side would think "That's free money!", Robinhood is the best. Because Citadel will snag that free money shit like no other. Seriously, if you don't have a RH account, open one. It's great for making meme plays.

RULE 4. YOU DON'T START A TRADE WITH BIG POSITIONS. Doesn't matter how big or small your bankroll is. If you go all-in, you're just gambling, and the odds are stacked against you. You need to have extra cash to manage your positions. Which leads to
RULE 5. MANAGING YOUR WINNERS: Your position going for you? Good job! Now POUND THAT SHIT! And again. Move your strikes to cheaper puts/calls, and pound again. And again. Snowball those gains.
RULE 6A. POUND THOSE $0.01 PUTS:
So you bought some puts and they’re going down? Well, the moment they reach $0.01, YOU POUND THOSE PUTS (assuming there’s enough time left on them, not shit expiring in 2h). $0.01 puts have amazing risk/return around the time they reach $0.01. This is not as valid for calls. Long explanation why, but the gist of it is this: you know how calls have unlimited upside while puts have limited upside? Well it’s the reverse of that.
RULE 6B. MANAGING YOUR LOSERS:
Your position going against you? Do you close the position, take your loss porn and post it on wsb? WRONG DUMBASS. You manage that by POUNDING THAT SHIT. Again and again. You don't manage losing positions by closing. That removes your gainz when the market turns around. You ever close a position, just to have it turn out it would have been a winner afterwards? Yeah, don't do that. You manage it by opening other positions. Got puts? Buy calls. Got calls? Buy puts. Turn positions into spreads. Buy spreads. Buy the VIX. Sell the VIX. They wanna pin for OPEX? Sell them options. Not enough bankroll to sell naked? Sell spreads. Make them fight you for your money, motherfuckers, don't just give it away for free. When you trade, YOU have the advantage of choosing when and where to engage. The market can only react. That's your edge, so USE IT! Like this:

Example 1:
Initial TQQQ 5/22 position = $5,000. Starts losing? You pound it.

https://preview.redd.it/gq938ty8e5151.png?width=944&format=png&auto=webp&s=734ab7ed517f0e6822bfaaed5765d1272de398d1
Total pounded in 5/22 TQQQ puts = $10,824. Unfortunately expired worthless (but also goes to show I'm not selling you puts, dickwads)
Then the autists show up:
"Hahaha you lost all your money nice job you fucking idiot why do you even live?" - cscqb4
Wrong fuckface. You see the max pain at SPX 2975 & OPEX pin coming? Sell them some calls or puts (or spreads).

https://preview.redd.it/7nv23fr41a151.jpg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=14a8879c975646ffbfe2942ca1982bfabfcf90df
Sold 9x5/20 SPX [email protected], bam +$6,390. Still wanna pin? Well have some 80x5/22 TQQQ $80cs, bam anotha +$14,700.

https://preview.redd.it/1iqtpmc71a151.jpg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=df9b954131b0877f4acc43038b4a5a4acf544237
+$21,090 - $10,824 = +$10,266 => Turned that shit into a +94.85% gain.

.cscqb4 rn

You have a downside position, but market going up or nowhere? You play that as well. At least make some money back, if not profit.

Example 2:

5/22, long weekend coming right? So you use your brain & try to predict what could happen over the 3-day weekend. Hmm, 3 day weekend, well you should expect either a shitty theta-burn or maybe the pajama traders will try to pooomp that shite on the low volume. Well make your play. I bet on the shitty theta burn, but could be the other, idk, so make a small play.

Sold some ES_F spreads (for those unaware, ES is a 50x multiplier, so 1 SPX = 2 ES = 10 SPY, approximately). -47x 2955/2960 bear call spreads for $2.5. Max gain is $2.5, max loss is 2960-2955 = $5. A double-or-nothing basically. That's $5,875 in premium, max loss = 2x premium = $11,750.
Well, today comes around and futures are pumping. Up to 3,014 now. Do you just roll over? You think I'm gonna sit and take it up the ass? Nah bros that's not how you trade, you fucking fight them. How?
I have:
47x 2960 calls
-47x 2955 calls

Pajama traders getting all up in my grill? Well then I buy back 1 of the 2955 calls. Did that shit yesterday when futures were a little over 2980, around 2982-ish. Paid $34.75, initially shorted at $16.95, so booked a -$892 loss, for now. But now what do I have?

46x 2955/2960 bear calls
1x 2960 long call

So the fuckers can pump it. In fact, the harder they pump it, the more I make. Each $2.5 move up in the futures covers the max loss for 1 spread. With SPX now at ~3015, that call is $55 ITM. Covers 24/46 contracts rn. If they wanna run it up, at 3070 it's break-even. Over that, it's profit. I'll sell them some bear call spreads over 3050 if they run it there too. They gonna dump it? well under 2960 it's profit time again. They wanna do a shitty pin at 3000 today? Well then I'll sell them some theta there.
Later edit: that was written yesterday. Got out with a loss of only $1.5k out of the max $5,875. Not bad.
And that, my dudes, is how you manage a position.

RULE 7 (ESPECIALLY FOR BEARS). YOU DON'T KEEP EXTRA CASH IN YOUR BROKER ACCOUNT. You don't do it with Robinhood, because it's a shitty dumpsterfire of a broker. But you don't do it with other brokers either. Pull that shit out. Preferably to a bank that doesn't play in the markets either, use a credit union or some shit. Why? Because you're giving the market free liquidity. Free margin loans. Squeeze that shit out, make them work for it. Your individual cash probably doesn't make a dent, but a million autists with an extra $1200 trumpbucks means $1.2b. That's starting to move the needle. You wanna make a play, use instant deposits. And that way you don't lose your shit when your crappy ass broker or bank gets its ass blown up on derivative trades. Even if it's FDIC or SIPC insured, it's gonna take time until you see that money again.


Chapter IV. BUSTING YOUR RETARDED MYTHS

MYTH 1 - STONKS ONLY GO UP

Do you think the market can go up forever? Do you think stOnKs oNLy Go uP because Fed brrr? Do you think SPX will be at 5000 by the end of the month? Do you think $1.5 trillion is a good entry point for stonks like AAPL or MSFT? Do you want to buy garbage like Hertz or American Airlines because it's cheap? Did you buy USO at the bottom and are now proud of yourself for making $2? Well, this section is for you!
Let's clear up the misconception that stonks only go up while Fed brrrs.

What's your target for the SPX top? Think 3500 by the end of the year? 3500 by September? 4000? 4500? 5000? Doesn't matter, you can plug in your own variables.

Let's say SPX only goes up, a moderate 0.5% each period as a compounded avg. (i.e. up a bit down a bit whatever, doesn't matter as long as at the end of your period, if you look back and do the math, you'll get that number). Let's call this variable BRRR = 0.005.

Can you do the basic math to calculate the value at the end of x periods? Or did you drop out in 5th grade? Doesn't matter if not, I'll teach you.


Let's say our period is one week. That is, SPX goes up on average 0.5% each week on Fed BRRR:
2950 * (1.005^x), where x is the number of periods (weeks in this case)

So, after 1 month, you have: 2950 * (1.005^4) = 3009
After 2 months: 2950 * (1.005^8) = 3070
End of the year? 2950 * (1.005^28) = 3392

Now clearly, we're already at 3015 on the futures, so we're moving way faster than that. More like at a speed of BRRR = 1%/wk

2950 * (1.01^4) = 3069
2950 * (1.01^8) = 3194
2950 * (1.01^28) = 3897


Better, but still slower than a lot of permabulls would expect. In fact, some legit fucks are seriously predicting SPX 4000-4500 by September. Like this dude, David Hunter, "Contrarian Macro Strategist w/40+ years on Wall Street". IDIOTIC.
https://twitter.com/DaveHcontrarian/status/1263066368414568448

That'd be 2950 * (BRRR^12) = 4000 => BRRR = 1.0257 and 2950 * (BRRR^12) = 4500 => BRRR = 1.0358, respectively.

Here's why that can't happen, no matter the amount of FED BRRR: Leverage. Compounded Leverage.

There's currently over $100b in leveraged etfs with a 2.5x avg. leverage. And that's just the ones I managed to tally, there's a lot of dogshit small ones on top of that. TQQQ alone is now at almost $6b in AUM (topped in Fed at a little over $7b).

Now, let's try to estimate what happens to TQQQ's AUM when BRRR = 1.0257. 3XBRRR = 1.0771. Take it at 3XBRRR = 1.07 to account for slippage in a medium-volatility environment and ignore the fact that the Nasdaq-100 would go up more than SPX anyway.

$6,000,000,000 * (1.07^4) = $7,864,776,060
$6,000,000,000 * (1.07^8) = $10,309,100,000
$6,000,000,000 * (1.07^12) = $13,513,100,000
$6,000,000,000 * (1.07^28) = $39,893,000,000.

What if BRRR = 1.0358? => 3XBRR = 1.1074. Take 3XBRRR = 1.10.
$6,000,000,000 * (1.1^4) = $8,784,600,000
$6,000,000,000 * (1.1^8) = $12,861,500,000
$6,000,000,000 * (1.1^12) = $18,830,600,000
$6,000,000,000 * (1.1^28) = $86,526,000,000

And this would have to get 3x leveraged every day. And this is just for TQQQ.

Let's do an estimation for all leveraged funds. $100b AUM, 2.5 avg. leverage factor, BRRR = 1.0257 => 2.5BRRR = 1.06425

$100b * (1.06^4) = $128.285b
$100b * (1.06^8) = $159.385b
$100b * (1.06^12) = $201.22b
$100b * (1.06^28) = $511.169b

That'd be $1.25 trillion sloshing around each day. And the market would have to lose each respective amount of cash into these leveraged funds. Think the market can do that? You can play around with your own variables. But understand that this is just a small part of the whole picture, many other factors go into this. It's a way to put a simple upper limit on an assumption, to check if it's reasonable.

In the long run, it doesn't matter if the Fed goes BRRR, if TQQQ takes in it's share of 3XBRRR. And the Fed can't go 3XBRRR, because then TQQQ would take in 9XBRRR. And on top of this, you have a whole pile of leveraged derivatives on top of these leveraged things. Watch (or rewatch) this: Selena Gomez & Richard H. Thaler Explaining Synthetic CDO through BLACKJACK

My general point, at the mouth-breather level, is that Fed BRRR cannot be infinite, because leverage.
And these leveraged ETFs are flawed instruments in the first place. It didn't matter when they started out. TQQQ and SQQQ started out at $8m each. For the banks providing the swaps, for the market providing the futures contracts, whatever counter-party to whatever instrument they would use, that was fine. Because it balanced out. When TQQQ made a million, SQQQ lost a million (minus a small spread, which was the bank's profit). Bank was happy, in the long run things would even out. Slippage and spreads and fees would make them money. But then something happened. Stonks only went up. And leveraged ETFs got bigger and more and more popular.
And so, TQQQ ended up being $6-7b, while SQQQ was at $1b. And the same goes for all the other ETFs. Long leveraged ETF AUM became disproportionate to short AUM. And it matters a whole fucking lot. Because if you think of the casino, TQQQ walks up every day and says "I'd like to put $18b on red", while SQQQ walks up and says "I'd only like to put $3b on black". And that, in turn, forces the banks providing the swaps to either eat shit with massive losses, or go out and hedge. Probably a mix of both. But it doesn't matter if the banks are hedged, someone else is on the other side of those hedges anyway. Someone's eating a loss. Can think of it as "The Market", in general, eating the loss. And there's only so much loss the market can eat before it craps itself.

If you were a time traveller, how much money do you think you could make by trading derivatives? Do you think you could make $20 trillion? You know the future prices after all... But no, you couldn't. There isn't enough money out there to pay you. So you'd move the markets by blowing them up. Call it the Time-travelling WSB Autist Paradox.

If you had a bucket with a hole in the bottom, even if you poured an infinite amount of water into it, it would never be full. Because there's a LIQUIDITY SINK, just like there is one in the markets.
And that, my mouth-breathing friends, is the reason why FED BRRR cannot be infinite. Or alternatively, "STONKS MUST GO BOTH UP AND DOWN".

MYTH 2 - YOU CAN'T TIME THE MARKET

On Jan 14, 2020, I predicted this: Assuming that corona doesn't become a problem, "AAPL: Jan 28 $328.3, Jan 31 $316.5, April 1 $365.7, May 1 $386, July 1 $429 December 31 $200."
Now take a look at the AAPL chart in January. After earnings AAPL peaked at $327.85. On 1/31, after the 1st hour of trading, when the big boys make moves, it was at $315.63. Closed 1/31 at $309.51. Ya think I pulled this one out of my ass too?
Yes you can time it. Flows, motherfucker, flows. Money flow moves everything. And these days, we have a whole lot of RETARDED FLOW. Can't even call it dumb flow, because it literally doesn't think. Stuff like:

  • ETF flows. If MSFT goes up and AAPL goes down, part of that flow is going to move from AAPL to MSFT. Even if MSFT flash-crashes up to $1000, the ETF will still "buy". Because it's passive.
  • Option settlement flows. Once options expire, money is going to flow from one side to another, and that my friends is accurately predictable from the data.
  • Index rebalancing flows
  • Buyback flows
  • 401k passive flows
  • Carry trade flows
  • Tax day flows
  • Flows of people front-running the flows

And many many others. Spot the flow, and you get an edge. How could I predict where AAPL would be after earnings within 50 cents and then reverse down to $316 2 days later? FLOWS MOTHERFUCKER FLOWS. The market was so quiet in that period, that is was possible to precisely figure out where it ended up. Why the dump after? Well, AAPL earnings (The 8-K) come out on a Wednesday. The next morning, after market opens the 10-Q comes out. And that 10-Q contains a very important nugget of information: the latest number of outstanding shares. But AAPL buybacks are regular as fuck. You can predict the outstanding shares before the market gets the 10-Q. And that gives you EDGE. Which leads to

MYTH 3 - BUYBACKS DON'T MATTER

Are you one of those mouthbreathers that parrots the phrase "buybacks are just a tax-efficient way to return capital to shareholders"? Well sit the fuck down, I have news for you. First bit of news, you're dumb as shit. Second bit:

On 1/28, AAPL's market cap is closing_price x free_float_outstanding_shares. But that's not the REAL MARKET CAP. Because the number of outstanding shares is OLD AS FUCK. When the latest number comes out, the market cap changes instantly. And ETFs start moving, and hedges start being changed, and so on.

"But ETFs won't change the number of shares they hold, they will still hold the same % of AAPL in the index" - random_wsb_autist

Oh my fucking god you're dumb as fuck. FLOWS change. And the next day, when TQQQ comes by and puts its massive $18b dong on the table, the market will hedge that differently. And THAT CAN BE PREDICTED. That's why AAPL was exactly at $316 1 hour after the market opened on 1/31.

So, what can you use to spot moves? Let me show you:
Market topped on 2/19. Here’s SPY. I even marked interesting dates for you with vertical lines.

https://preview.redd.it/7agm171eh5151.png?width=3713&format=png&auto=webp&s=d94b90dcd634c8dc688925585bf0a02c3299f71b
Nobody could have seen it coming, right? WRONG AGAIN. Here:

https://preview.redd.it/i1kdp3cgh5151.png?width=3713&format=png&auto=webp&s=7a1e086e9217846547efd3b6c5249f4a7ebe6d9e
In fact, JPYUSD gave you two whole days to see it. Those are NOT normal JPYUSD moves. But hey maybe it’s just a fluke? Wrong again.

https://preview.redd.it/fsyhenckh5151.png?width=3693&format=png&auto=webp&s=03200e10b008257ae15d40b474c4cf4d8c23670f
Forex showed you that all over the place. Why? FLOWS MOTHERFUCKER FLOWS. When everything moves like that, it means the market needs CASH. It doesn’t matter why, but remember people pulling cash out of ATMs all over the world? Companies drawing massive revolvers? Just understand what this flow means.
The reversal:
https://preview.redd.it/4xe97l0oh5151.png?width=1336&format=png&auto=webp&s=07aaa93f6b1d8f542101e40e431edccbc109918f
https://preview.redd.it/v6i0pdmoh5151.png?width=1338&format=png&auto=webp&s=74d5589961db2f978d4d582e6d7c58a85f6305f9
But it wasn’t just forex. Gold showed it to you as well. Bonds showed it to you as well.
https://preview.redd.it/40j53u8th5151.png?width=3711&format=png&auto=webp&s=fe39ab51321d0f98149d33e33253e69f96c48e23
Even god damn buttcoin showed it to you.
https://preview.redd.it/43lvafhvh5151.png?width=3705&format=png&auto=webp&s=1ef53283cbc0fb97f71c1ba935c0bd747809636e
And they all did it for 2 days before the move hit equities.

Chapter V. LIQUIDITY NUKE INBOUND
You see all these bankruptcies that happened so far, and all the ones that are going to follow? Do you think that’s just dogshit companies and it won’t have major effects on anything outside them? WRONG.
Because there’s a lot of leveraged instruments on top of those equities. When the stock goes to 0, all those outstanding puts across all expirations get instantly paid.
Understand that Feb-March was a liquidity MOAB. But this will end with a liquidity nuke.
Here’s just HTZ for example: $239,763,550 in outstanding puts. Just on a single dogshit small-cap company (this thing was like $400m mkt. cap last week).
And that’s just the options on the equity. There’s also instruments on etfs that hold HTZ, on the bonds, on the ETFs that hold their bonds, swaps, warrants, whatever. It’s a massive pile of leverage.
Then there’s also the ripple effects. Were you holding a lot of HTZ in your brokerage margin account? Well guess what big boi, when that gaps to 0 you get a margin call, and then you become a liquidity drain. Holding long calls? 0. Bonds 0. DOG SHIT!
And the market instantly goes from holding $x in assets (HTZ equity / bonds / calls) to holding many multiples of x in LIABILITIES (puts gone wrong, margin loans, derivatives books, revolvers, all that crap). And it doesn’t matter if the Fed buys crap like HTZ bonds. You short them some. Because when it hits 0, it’s no longer about supply and demand. You get paid full price, straight from Jerome’s printer. Is the Fed going to buy every blown up derivative too? Because that's what they'd have to do.
Think of liquidity as a car. The faster it goes, the harder it becomes to go even faster. At some point, you can only go faster by driving off a cliff. THE SQUEEZE. But you stop instantly when you hit the ground eventually. And that’s what shit’s doing all over the place right now.
Rewatch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hG4X5iTK8M
And just like that fucker, “I’m standing in front of a burning house, and I’m offering you fire insurance on it.”

Don’t baghold!
Now is not the time to baghold junk. Take your cash. Not the time to buy cheap crap. You don’t buy Hertz. You don’t buy USO. You don’t buy airlines, or cruises, or GE, or motherfucking Disney. And if you have it, dump that shit.
And the other dogshit that’s at ATH, congrats you’re in the green. Now you take your profits and fucking dump that shit. I’m talking shit like garbage SaaS, app shit, AI shit, etc. Garbage like MDB, OKTA, SNAP, TWLO, ZM, CHGG etc.
And you dump those garbage ass leveraged ETFs. SQQQ, TQQQ, whatever, they’re all dogshit now.
The leverage MUST unwind. And once that’s done, some of you will no longer be among us if you don’t listen. A lot of leveraged ETFs will be gone. Even some non-leveraged ETFs will be gone. Some brokers will be gone, some market makers will be gone, hell maybe even some big bank has to go under. I can’t know which ones will go poof, but I can guarantee you that some will. Another reason to diversify your shit. There’s a reason papa Warrant Buffet dumped his bags, don’t think you’re smarter than him. He may be senile, but he’s still a snake.
And once the unwind is done, THEN you buy whatever cheap dogshit’s still standing.
Got it? Good.
You feel ready to play yet? Alright, so you catch a move. Or I post a move and you wanna play it. You put on a small position. When it’s going your way, YOU POUND DAT SHIT. Still going? Well RUSH B CYKA BLYAT AND PLANT THE GOD DAMN 3/20 $30p BOMB.

Chapter VI - The mouthbreather-proof play - THE AKIMBO
Still a dumbass that can’t make a play? Still want to go long? Well then, I got a dumbass-proof trade for you. I present to you THE AKIMBO:

STEP 1. You play this full blast. You need some real Russian hardbass to get you in the right mood for trading, cyka.
STEP 2. Split your play money in 3. Remember to keep extra bankroll for POUNDING THAT SHIT.
STEP 3. Use 1/3 of your cash to buy SQQQ 9/18 $5p, pay $0.05. Not more than $0.10.
STEP 4. Use 1/3 of your cash to buy TQQQ 9/18 $20p, pay around $0.45. Alternatively, if you’re feeling adventurous, 7/17 $35p’s for around $0.5.
STEP 5. Use 1/3 of your cash to buy VIX PUT SPREADS 9/15 $21/$20 spread for around $0.15, no more than $0.25. That is, you BUY the 21p and SELL the 20p. Only using Robinhood and don’t have the VIX? What did I just tell you? Well fine, use UVXY then. Just make sure you don’t overpay.


Chapter VII - Quick hints for non-mouthbreathers
Quick tips, cuz apparently I'm out of space, there's a 40k character limit on reddit posts. Who knew?

  1. Proshares is dogshit. If you don't understand the point in my last post, do this: download https://accounts.profunds.com/etfdata/ByFund/SQQQ-historical_nav.csv and https://accounts.profunds.com/etfdata/ByFund/SQQQ-psdlyhld.csv. Easier to see than with TQQQ. AUM: 1,174,940,072. Add up the value of all the t-bills = 1,686,478,417.49 and "Net other assets / cash". It should equal the AUM, but you get 2,861,340,576. Why? Because that line should read: NET CASH = -$511,538,344.85
  2. Major index rebalancing June 22.
  3. Watch the violent forex moves.
  4. 6/25 will be red. Don't ask, play a spread, bag a 2x-er.
  5. 6/19 will be red.
  6. Not settled yet, but a good chance 5/28 is red.
  7. Front run the rebalance. Front-run the front-runners of the rebalance too. TQQQ puts.
  8. Major retard flow in financials yesterday. Downward pressure now. GS 180 next weeks looks good.
  9. Buy leaps puts on dogshit bond ETFs (check holdings for dogshit)
  10. Buy TLT 1/15/2021 $85ps for cheap, sell over $1 when the Fed stops the ass rape, rinse and repeat
  11. TQQQ flow looks good:
https://preview.redd.it/untvykuxea151.jpg?width=750&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a0a38c0acb088ebff689d043e48466eb76d38e2f

Good luck. Dr. Retard TQQQ Burry out.

Interested to see if this holds any truth. What do you guys think? Found on FB.

STILL A CONSPIRACY? ▪️Prince Harry and Megan leave the royal family. (I would too if I found out my own family had my mother killed, and were satan worshipping, child traffickers)
▪️Prince Andrew is accused for pedophilia and was extremely close with Jeffrey Epstein. (A convicted pedophile) Research Epstein Island, Lolita express (if you have a strong stomach)
▪️Research Pizzagate (if you can handle it)
▪️Wiki leaks exposed Hillary Clinton for being a child sex trafficker (along with Obama, Podesta and many other people in power) and she conveniently deletes over 300,000 emails, and destroys a laptop and mobile phone she used while in office... and gets away with it??
▪️Trump gets elected.
▪️Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood’s biggest germ was finally arrested for sex crimes (another elite pedo) .. all of a sudden he gets the “virus”...?
▪️Prince Charles & now also the Queen conveniently have the “virus”, yet the queen fled the palace to self isolate weeks ago...?
▪️All of your Hollywood favourites have the virus. Adrenochrome is your topic here, research it.
▪️Bill gates is pushing vaccines and global depopulation, and he conveniently owns 15% of the WHO (World Health Organisation). Yes, the WHO is a business, go figure. Which is also owned by George Soros and the Rockerfellers. Don’t know them? Research them. (This information alone should make your stomach churn).
▪️Google is currently uncensored and you can access this information. (Why now?) Whilst you’re there, keep googling “Adrenochrome” and start to follow the trail...
▪️An Adrenochrome batch was made in Wuhan... how fitting...? (Connecting the dots yet?)
▪️US has deployed 30,000 troops to Europe. “for training”. Without masks or any hand sanitizer... Interesting..
▪️600 Mexican drug cartels have recently been arrested, one of the biggest busts in history by the U.S... why didn’t we hear about that? Trump openly speaks about this more and more in his daily press releases as the days roll on, speaking about winning the ‘war, and barely mentioning the actual virus in his ‘Coronavirus’ briefings.
▪️ 298 Saudi’s royals, billionaires, lawyers and judges were recently arrested for crimes and corruption.
▪️3 Chinese including 1 Harvard professor were prosecuted for economic espionage a few weeks ago.. which is all extremely relevant to Wuhan, Covid-19 and everything that’s going on right now. Research this.
▪️Trump crashed the Fed bank, they bought all of the gold and now hold the keys to creating a gold back currency, removing the fiat. The fed and treasury were basically merged meaning that Trump is now the Chairman for the global banking system with the people’s money. Not the rothschilds, Rockerfellers, Soros, Goldman the list goes on.. this is HISTORIC.
▪️For this to be possible, the economy must be crashed. All corrupt coin needs to be drained. A 14-28 day lock down is the best way to do this and even better way to re-distribute the money back to people on government grants, payg refunds for business and ato offsets.. making sense yet? No longer will 99% of the worlds wealth be owned by an evil, greedy and corrupt 1%.
Believe what you want. Take what I say with a grain of salt... but open your eyes beyond the virus... and gosh.. just do some research! It’s all happening.
▪️Dozens of the worlds most powerful CEO’s have stood down.. why? Disney, Microsoft, Groupon and over 1300 of the top CEO’s.. gone. This was before the crash mind you... what are they running from???
▪️ Thousands of arrests have been made for child trafficking, human trafficking and sex abuse.. but the media is not telling you that... what are they hiding? Nurses are coming forward speaking publicly about the fact they’re treating hundreds of children in hospitals right now.. not for Coronavirus but for malnutrition, some extremely deformed, and all with extreme psychiatric damage due to trauma.
▪️ It’s widely known there are underground tunnel systems (research D.U.M.B ) that have been used for decades to traffick people for sex slaves and organ harvesting, across the globe. There is currently a monumental military operation going down, lead by POTUS to uncover these children, arrest those involved, and stop this evil once and for all.
What you are seeing is a war. An invisible war that Trump keeps taking about...
It’s a war between Trump “The Alliance” and the elites, bankers and mainstream media.
The alliance is a compilation of ppl who have been wirhing the government and slate sick of the bullshit
What your seeing is a war between good and evil.
Pay attention to the bigger picture. Trump has arrested and caught more pedophile and child trafficking rings in the world... but I bet you didn’t know that because the mainstream (George Soros funded media) make out that he’s a moron...
Trump will go down in history in the coming weeks.
There is no need to panic or have fear. This whole thing is working out as it needs to for Trump and his team to remove the corruption and power that has taxed your hard earned dollars, loaded your loans and credit cards with interest and pulled wool over your eyes.. we have been living as slaves to the system for long enough.
You’re going to see some big names get called out, to the point where you don’t want to believe it.
Oprah. Ellen. Obama. Gates. Clintons. Podesta. Hanks. Madonna. Gaga.
The list goes on and on and on.
If you still believe that 9/11 was a terrorist attack from Osama Bin Ladin who trained donkeys to fly cessnas, which then magically upskilled into Boeing’s and flew aluminium planes into 580m steel reinforced towers that collapsed like a deck of cards, not to mention tower 7 which was a block away but folded. (Let’s not forget the 6 seals who took Osama down that were killed in a mysterious chopper crash. RIP fellas).... you’re in for a wake up call...
Some of the big banks WILL go bankrupt, they are already on their knees, Income tax WILL go away and the elites will no longer rule you or the world.
Welcome to the New World Order....
🙏🏼
Don’t believe me? Do the research for yourself. Personally I would read the Clinton emails on Wikileaks. Once you read that you’ll believe the rest. Many of the most powerful people are more sick and evil than you could ever imagine.
Start listening to Trump’s daily press briefings. This is not about politics. Read between the lines.
P.S. Thought the 5G conspiracies were crazy... stay tuned

▪️Bill gates is pushing vaccines and global depopulation, and he conveniently owns 15% of the WHO (World Health Organisation). Yes, the WHO is a business, go figure. Which is also owned by George Soros and the Rockerfellers. Don’t know them? Research them. (This information alone should make your stomach churn).
▪️Google is currently uncensored and you can access this information. (Why now?) Whilst you’re there, keep googling “Adrenochrome” and start to follow the trail...
▪️An Adrenochrome batch was made in Wuhan... how fitting...? (Connecting the dots yet?)
▪️US has deployed 30,000 troops to Europe. “for training”. Without masks or any hand sanitizer... Interesting..
▪️600 Mexican drug cartels have recently been arrested, one of the biggest busts in history by the U.S... why didn’t we hear about that? Trump openly speaks about this more and more in his daily press releases as the days roll on, speaking about winning the ‘war, and barely mentioning the actual virus in his ‘Coronavirus’ briefings.
▪️ 298 Saudi’s royals, billionaires, lawyers and judges were recently arrested for crimes and corruption.
▪️3 Chinese including 1 Harvard professor were prosecuted for economic espionage a few weeks ago.. which is all extremely relevant to Wuhan, Covid-19 and everything that’s going on right now. Research this.
▪️Trump crashed the Fed bank, they bought all of the gold and now hold the keys to creating a gold back currency, removing the fiat. The fed and treasury were basically merged meaning that Trump is now the Chairman for the global banking system with the people’s money. Not the rothschilds, Rockerfellers, Soros, Goldman the list goes on.. this is HISTORIC.
▪️For this to be possible, the economy must be crashed. All corrupt coin needs to be drained. A 14-28 day lock down is the best way to do this and even better way to re-distribute the money back to people on government grants, payg refunds for business and ato offsets.. making sense yet? No longer will 99% of the worlds wealth be owned by an evil, greedy and corrupt 1%.
Believe what you want. Take what I say with a grain of salt... but open your eyes beyond the virus... and gosh.. just do some research! It’s all happening.
▪️Dozens of the worlds most powerful CEO’s have stood down.. why? Disney, Microsoft, Groupon and over 1300 of the top CEO’s.. gone. This was before the crash mind you... what are they running from???
▪️ Thousands of arrests have been made for child trafficking, human trafficking and sex abuse.. but the media is not telling you that... what are they hiding? Nurses are coming forward speaking publicly about the fact they’re treating hundreds of children in hospitals right now.. not for Coronavirus but for malnutrition, some extremely deformed, and all with extreme psychiatric damage due to trauma.
▪️ It’s widely known there are underground tunnel systems (research D.U.M.B ) that have been used for decades to traffick people for sex slaves and organ harvesting, across the globe. There is currently a monumental military operation going down, lead by POTUS to uncover these children, arrest those involved, and stop this evil once and for all.
What you are seeing is a war. An invisible war that Trump keeps taking about...
It’s a war between Trump and his Secret Service against the elites, bankers and mainstream media.
A war between good and evil.
Pay attention to the bigger picture. Trump has arrested and caught more pedophile and child trafficking rings in the world... but I bet you didn’t know that because the mainstream (George Soros funded media) make out that he’s a moron...
Trump will go down in history in the coming weeks.
There is no need to panic or have fear. This whole thing is working out as it needs to for Trump and his team to remove the corruption and power that has taxed your hard earned dollars, loaded your loans and credit cards with interest and pulled wool over your eyes.. we have been living as slaves to the system for long enough.
You’re going to see some big names get called out, to the point where you don’t want to believe it.
Oprah. Ellen. Obama. Gates. Clintons. Podesta. Hanks. Madonna. Gaga.
The list goes on and on and on.
If you still believe that 9/11 was a terrorist attack from Osama Bin Ladin who trained donkeys to fly cessnas, which then magically upskilled into Boeing’s and flew aluminium planes into 580m steel reinforced towers that collapsed like a deck of cards, not to mention tower 7 which was a block away but folded. (Let’s not forget the 6 seals who took Osama down that were killed in a mysterious chopper crash. RIP fellas).... you’re in for a wake up call...
Some of the big banks WILL go bankrupt, they are already on their knees, Income tax WILL go away and the elites will no longer rule you or the world.
Welcome to the New World Order....
🙏🏼
Don’t believe me? Do the research for yourself. Personally I would read the Clinton emails on Wikileaks. Once you read that you’ll believe the rest. Many of the most powerful people are more sick and evil than you could ever imagine.
Start listening to Trump’s daily press briefings. This is not about politics. Read between the lines.

"Do you see this match? The match is more reliable than the truth." — The Twilight of Wolumonde Debrief

TW-ST-1 Under the Old Oak

Tatjana finds Officer Severin Hawthorn under an oak tree. His smoking is worsening his disease. After the catastrophe, Wolumonde is forced to deviate from its original route, and as a result there has been growing tension within the Assembly Hall—everyone is saying that Wolumonde should move around the rift caused by the catastrophe and go back onto its route, but Severin worries that it would take much too long. The town representatives also decided that the corpses of the infected who died in a fire have to be buried outside the city. Severin laments about their death. Eckehard was the best barber around; Biederman lost his job as a catastrophe messenger due to the catastrophe, but he’s been trying to atone; Kevin wasn’t even infected; and there was Thorwald. Despite Thorwald being Severin's son, as the head of the city he has to consent.
In a run-down village, Mudrock meets with one of her soldiers. Wolumonde is planning to move soon, and the soldier says that they must get a result before then. However, he doesn't trust the local infected rioters, and thinks that they're only using Reunion's name as an excuse. He asks if Big Bob has written anything back, and Mudrock says he didn't.
“… A treasure, yeah, a treasure.
“If there's a treasure to help us too… that'd be nice.”
On Rhodes Island, operator Folinic finally receives a message regarding Dr. Anton after waiting in the communication room for twenty hours: she was last seen in one of Leithanien's cities, where a catastrophe had just struck a month ago.

TW-1: Unspoken

https://preview.redd.it/hfrcob41l3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=ab7e76932b4b3de0da2e71daee63c8aa76d241d6
In Leithanien’s mobile city Wolumonde, what was once a prosperous city is now barely populated.
In the Wolumonde Assembly Hall, a town representative asks Officer Severin where he has been. Severin instead asks if he was present when they decided on the fate of his son, Thorwald. The infected are still protesting, as they believe the fire on the campsite was set by someone on purpose, and they want an answer for Dr. Anton, a Rhodes Island doctor, and the dead infected.
Severin believes that the infected are being incised. He asks the representative if the infected have come into contact with the suspicious armed personnel, and the representative denies, but tells Severin he fears that those suspicious personnel, who are still wandering outside the city, will influence the protesters.
A message comes in from the sentries. Two people from Rhodes Island have arrived. Severin thinks that Rhodes Island has the right to know about the truth, but the representative disagrees. Severin is indifferent and he exits, leaving the decision making to the representatives.
“Wolumonde, meaning the eighth moon, formed the brilliant business sector with its surrounding seven cities in Northern Leithanien—.
“That’s what the book said.”
https://preview.redd.it/yx2roamal3a51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=d95bd30561d4793d2cef8b82443d06e6c378640d
Suzuran and Folinic arrive at Wolumonde, but they’re met with something completely different from a “brilliant business sector”. A catastrophe called “the Great Rift” ruined the city.
A few passersby notice Suzuran’s nine tails and the originium on her shoulder. Suzuran asks if it’s fine for her to walk on the street like this, and Folinic tells her that although Leithanien is generally tolerant to the infected, and provided places for the infected to live in, there are still prices to be paid.
They see Severin in the distance, smoking, and ask him for directions to the Assembly Hall. Severin points them the way, but says that he’s off work when Suzuran tries to ask another question, and walks away. Tatjana, who came to find her uncle, also appears, and Severin tells her to lead Suzurin and Folinic to the Assembly Hall, and Tatjana recognizes them as experts from Rhodes Island.
Folinic tries asking about Dr. Anton, but is interrupted when some infected suddenly begin rioting. Severin asks for Rhodes Island’s assistance.
—————
“Why, why are those outsiders interfering with our own problems!
“And you! Severin! Your son died in that fire, and yet you’re still helping those assholes!”
Severin took care of the last few infected rioters. He thanks Folinic for their help, and tells her to talk later as it isn’t safe here. Folinic glances around at the street that isn’t so different from other places, and Suzuran wonders how it’d be if everywhere was so nice to the infected. But Folinic thinks that the atmosphere is too odd. Even Leithanien wouldn’t let the infected roam the streets as they please.
Tatjana apologizes to them for dragging them into the situation. Folinic asks about Dr. Anton again, and notices a subtle change in expression on Tatjana’s face. She tells Folinic that it’s something beyond her, but Officer Severin will answer them.
https://preview.redd.it/987ngkidl3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=c7482e27fae150676f2a1641610495715da6f179
In the Assembly Hall, Severin gets into a conflict with a town representative again. Tatjana brings the two to Severin, and Folinic tells him that they're only here to confirm Dr. Anton's status, and won't stay for long.
Severin: She is missing.
Suzuran: Eh?
Folinic: … Gendarme, you shouldn't act so frivolously when talking about such a topic.
Severin: The truth is frivolous, simple, and light. Just like how you are furious, but you are not too surprised. You have already guessed, haven't you?
Severin: We did receive an infected doctor who called herself "Anton". During the most difficult times in Wolumonde, she helped us take care of many infected residents. We deeply thank her.
Folinic: So your way of expressing your thanks is to tell us that Anton is missing?
Severin says that Anton set up a campsite outside the city to help take care of the infected, but a fire, which they deemed to be an accident, destroyed it, and Anton left Wolumonde soon after. He apologizes, as he too doesn't wish Anton to come to harm, but there have been many suspicious personnel wandering in the outskirts of the city whom he believes are simply bandits trying to nab something from the disaster. Folinic questions why they’re simply wandering around and not raiding the city, and asks Severin if he knows about Reunion. Severin replies that he does, but it isn’t something a small city like Wolumonde will worry about.
The representative suggests that Folinic and Suzuran settle down for the night, but Folinic insists on starting the investigation right away, and leaves.
Representative: … How long can we keep hiding it?
Severin: Did you see her expression?
Representative: … Yes.
Severin: Indeed, perhaps Rhodes Island isn’t a company that will extort us for benefits, but they will go to unexpected lengths for lost comrades.
Severin: It’s the same for us.
Representative: But… it shouldn’t count as our responsibility, no, in the end, didn’t those damn infected set the fire!?
Severin: We don’t have evidence.
Representative: But we can’t just take the blame for it!
Representative: We are tolerant to these infected, but how did they treat us? After the gendarme squad left, there are infected acting out against us every day!
Severin: … Yeah, the truth is frivolous. Do you see this match? The match is more reliable than the truth.
Severin tells Tatjana to look after their new guests. After she leaves, he recalls Folinic’s sorrowful expression, and wonders why Tatjana never looked sad when Thorwald could’ve become her husband.

TW-2: Whistle of Rebellion

https://preview.redd.it/cg85zesgl3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=e7bb383d40c25416f214d3b666c167a01cc72b6f
Even after they arrived in the infected residential area in Wolumonde, Folinic is still angry at Severin’s attitude, but she believes that Anton is all right. They see many infected in the streets. Although they can live here, it’s more like an oversized prison than a functioning community. None of the stores are open, and the public transports are all shut down.
Tatjana catches up to them, and from her Folinic and Suzuran learn that this street, the Twelfth Note Street, used to be Wolumonde’s largest infected gathering site, but now it’s also where all the protesters are. Tatjana asks about Anton, and for the first time since coming to Wolumonde, Folinic smiles while talking about her.
Suddenly, there was a disturbance in the crowd in front. The residents begin to look towards the three. At the very back of the crowd was the figure of a Sarkaz, who quickly disappears.
—————
On the main street of Wolumonde, Severin confirms the armed infected infiltration. The “Gramophones” didn’t activate. The representative tells Severin that the infiltrators are everywhere in the infected residential area, and they are inciting the local infected to gather and protest. They ask for the resumption of supplies to Twelfth Note Street, the removal of the quarantine, and most importantly, an official explanation for the fire.
In an alley in Twelfth Note Street, Tatjana gets into a quarrel with two infected rioters. The latter angrily criticizes the officials of their incompetence, and says that it’s only because of the government’s mistake that they turned infected. Folinic joins in and tries to persuade him. The infected doesn’t buy it, however, and mentions Dr. Anton. Folinic suddenly grabs the infected and hastily asks him Anton’s whereabouts. The infected tell her that it was the government who murdered Anton, since on the day of the fire, not a single person escaped from that tent. He taunts Tatjana, since she can’t kill him without causing the rest of the infected residents to split off. They’ll rather join the people wandering outside the city than trust Wolumonde.
Civilian soldiers arrive and take away the infected. Folinic asks Tatjana for an explanation, and Tatjana could only tell her that she doesn’t know if Anton is alive or not. Folinic is angry that she was lied to, but on the principles of Rhodes Island, she will help Wolumonde.

TW-3: Smoke from the High Tower

https://preview.redd.it/ch5zqzizk3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=daf688d7e7ea8f3074be875ca3d45b11e8de1ff9
The three of them arrive at the burnt down campsite, and find the remains of Rhodes Island supply crates. There were traces of Arts, and the fire melted even the metal supports of the tent. When the fire started, there were three infected from the city receiving treatment: Kevin, Biederman, Eckehard, as well as Thorwald. There were also four other patients who came from outside the city, who were caught in the “Great Rift” catastrophe and became infected.
Suzuran: … Miss Tatjana, if you’re feeling sad, it’s better if you say it out loud.
Tatjana: Eh?
Suzuran: I can feel it, it’s filled with sorrow here.
Suzuran: There were… a lot of discontent, a lot of happiness, a lot of pain, but they’re all gone now.
Tatjana: Is this… some sort of Arts?
Suzuran: No—I’ve just seen too many things like this. Everyone likes to hide their thoughts, but that isn’t good.
Suzuran: Maybe I’m just overthinking it, but, if you always force yourself, you’ll make the people around you worry.
Suzuran: You can cry. No one is going to say anything.
Folinic asks to inspect the corpses, and Tatjana agrees. She suddenly notices a name tag on one of the Rhodes Island crates, and it belonged to Anton.
https://preview.redd.it/89gj3wenl3a51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=6ba2d6ce894722603678123a4784082445f3c275
A ruckus comes from the direction of the city. A group of armed infected appears, and they recognize the Rhodes Island logo. They are part of Mudrock’s squad.
—————
After fighting off Mudrock's squad, the three return to the city where another riot is taking place. The infected are demanding to take over the city, and blames Severin's incompetence for Wolumonde's downfall. Severin takes down one of the armed rioters, almost killing him in the process.
Tatjana: Officer…
Severin: I told you, when we're alone, I'm not your officer. I'm Thor's father, your uncle.
Tatjana: No, officer, you… you were planning to kill that infected.
Severin: … I won’t deny that.
Tatjana: That will aggravate the conflict… ! And you shouldn’t act out against those who were once Wolumonde’s family!
Severin: Despite him telling the rioters the fact that Wolumonde is lacking its gendarme squad?
Severin: You know what it means, Tatjana.
Tatjana: But you shouldn’t be so heartless—
Severin: Unless you know everything, it’s difficult for any of us to make the right decision. We don’t have a choice.
Severin: If objectively, a great banker or prophet told me that a few deaths will return peace to Wolumonde—
Severin: I will do it, no matter who it is.
He already knows that Tatjana led Rhodes Island to the scene of the fire. Tatjana wants to trust them, but Severin says that if every Rhodes Island operator he meets is a good person, he’ll be worried instead.
A rumbling came from beneath the city. The rioters have disabled the main furnace of the mobile city. The armed infected pleads to Mudrock to destroy Wolumonde, but Mudrock refuses.

TW-4: Soul of Vengeance

Operators Greythroat, Click, and Ayerscarpe arrive at the scene of the fire. Greythroat finds the supply boxes, and a square patch in the dust on the crate tells her that Anton’s ID tag might’ve been there. She asks the others if they’re fine with setting camp outside the city. They agree, and Greythroat leaves to confirm Anton’s status.
Back in the Wolumonde Assembly Hall, Severin tells Folinic that the catastrophe has ruined most of the food supply in the city. Someone who knew the internal workings led the rioters to the main furnace, and now Wolumonde wouldn’t be able to leave the Wintergeist Mountains before winter. Severin knows that a famine will be inevitable, and sends more people to guard the food reserve in case of more riots.
“… If I tell you, the supplies have diminished due to the increase in the infected, will you believe it?
“No, whether you believe it or not doesn’t matter. Do they believe it?
“They’ll tear down the doors of the reserve, inspect every grain, before they trust our words.
“Then, are we just going to let them tear it down?
[…]
“They incite, they raid, what they did today was only for their own survival, and leaving the rest to starve. Putting it bluntly, they’re looking for an excuse to rob.
“Rhodes Island is an expert in infected issues, of course I believe that. Dr. Anton’s professionalism and your battles are proof enough.
“But—
“—Is oripathy the only hardship in this land?”
https://preview.redd.it/j7syjk5yl3a51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=bafaf31371b8289a6b171bd1bffb4edc02b8e984
He leads Folinic to where the corpses are stored, and gives her some time alone. Suzuran notices something about his disease, but he asks her to keep it a secret. He then shows them a device, the casting device used for the L-44 Gramophones, and also the weapon responsible for Anton's death.
https://preview.redd.it/stxe5juzl3a51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=1738a87ba723f1ae93c71ebc7f707329ccda0788
Tatjana comes with news. There’s another conflict with the infected, but she also found out something new: many of the ones who incited the infected aren’t actually infected themselves, but the Wintergeists.
—————
Folinic recalls her mother leaving for Ursus, and how Dr. Kal’tsit brought her to Rhodes Island. She and Suzuran leave to investigate more about the armed infected squad and the Wintergeists.
At the burnt campsite, Mudrock appears with a bouquet of flowers. She tells Click and Ayerscarpe to come out, and says she’s only here to pay her respects with flowers, and will leave right after. Greythroat also arrives, and recognizes the Reunion symbol on Mudrock.
“Reunion started a wildfire. From the past, the present, to the future, it will live on in every corner of this land.
“But, Reunion doesn’t represent all of the infected.
“So, what about you? Are you a local Leithanien, or an exile from elsewhere with sins and conspiracies?”
Mudrocks says that they’re just people on the run since they left Kazdel. She also knows that the fire wasn’t an accident, but since she doesn’t trust Rhodes Island completely, she refuses to divulge more information. Greythroat tells her that unrest is brewing in the city, and her men are inciting the infected residents. Although Mudrock agrees that the riots are bad, she won't make them back down until a murderer is found, and exits. Greythroat decides to continue the investigation on Wintergeist.
Folinic and Suzuran try to ask about the Wintergeists, but none of the residents are willing to give an answer. They only found out that it’s a topic that the nobles didn’t want discussed. Without any more leads, they decide to ask Severin again.
Hmm—Hmmmmm—♪
It was a fragile brach♪
Wintergeist, ah Wintergeist♪
Tired of a long-lasting life and death♪
It resiliently sang its song♪
It sang for a summer♪
And for a winter♪
Wintergeist, ah Wintergeist♪

TW-5: Wintergeist Elegy

https://preview.redd.it/dns4ygy9o3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=73dd408ef4734439a53d22db478eb2ad619cbf55
Everything fell into silence except for the singing. Severin, recognizing the elegy and fearing another conflict between the infected and the uninfected, orders his men to find the perpetrator. He finally tells Folinic that the Wintergeists were the native Caprinae who inhabited these mountains hundreds of years ago, but were wiped out by Wolumonde.
Severin: … I don’t know if I should tell you these, this is beyond what Rhodes Island needs to know…
Severin: If a gendarme told these things to a foreign corporation, it’ll upset some nobles very much.
Folinic: Nobles… ? Upset??
Folinic: —Anton sacrificed herself for you! Is this the time to save face!?
Suzuran: Sis, sister Folinic! Sacrifices… shouldn’t be an excuse for quarreling.
Suzuran: Officer Severin… ! Can you stop this search? It’ll only aggravate everyone’s emotions, and make matters beyond saving!
Folinic:
Folinic: … No, the only clue is in front of our eyes, we can’t miss it.
Folinic: Severin… all those mobile cities in Leithanien, all those nobles in their high towers, who ever cared about your wellbeing?
Folinic: Even if the Great Rift occured, if nearby mobile cities gave their aid, will there really be a famine?
Folinic: Severin, figure out who’s helping you!
Another explosion. The infected have captured the patrols in Twelfth Note Street. Severin gathers his forces and prepares for a battle, telling Rhodes Island that they can act as they see fit, and promising them that he will give them a satisfactory answer after this is over—if he is still alive, that is.
Folinic believes that they should find the murderer at once, but Suzuran asks if the problem will really be solved by doing so. Their job is to help the innocent residents who are caught in this mess, and if they don’t stop Severin, things will turn out really bad.
—————
Folinic and Tatjana help evacuate the civilians while fending off the armed infected in Twelfth Note Street. Using the Gramophones, the rioters set fire to the surrounding buildings. While helping a civilian escape, Tatjana broke her ankle, and an armed infected finds her.
Severin oversees the last batch of evacations, but learns that Tatjana and Folinic still haven’t come back. One of the residents suggests waiting for an opportunity to negotiate with them, but Severin angrily asks if he’s ever been to a battle. At the same time, Greythroat arrives with her squad, and Severin asks them to help save Folinic and Tatjana.
Ayerscarpe: This rescue is beyond our plan. Are you all right without any protective equipment?
Greythroat: I am.
Ayerscarpe: —Surprising. The Miss Greythroat in rumors wasn’t someone who would enthusiastically accept originium. I was worried about that.
Greythroat: … I just don’t want too many tragedies. Saving lives come first, save the talk.

TW-6: Spreading Anger

https://preview.redd.it/4a48phdio3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=97c6afb928992bfb07799566b55b48152722e5ff
Greythroat saves Tatjana from the rioters. She confirms Anton’s death, but questions Tatjana why there isn't a single proper gendarme in the city. Meanwhile, Ayerscarpe meets up with Folinic and faces off against more armed residents. These people aren’t the Wintergeists, but they agree with their cause. They believe that the entire Leithanien is corrupted. The reason that there’s not a single gendarme in town is because of a noble’s wedding, and all the gendarmes were assigned to a nearby mobile city.
“… Who do you think will burn down a medical campsite that takes care of the infected? The infected themselves?
“Only the ones who can’t stand the infected will do such a thing, you should trust us—
“—Trust “Reunion”!”
The group returns to Severin, and he thanks Rhodes Island for rescuing Tatjana. Ayerscarpe informs him that the captured rioters claimed to be part of Reunion. If they are led by Mudrock, then things will become more difficult. Severin decides to return to the Assembly Hall before making his decision. Despite Folinic wanting to fight too, Greythroat tells her that as a medical operator, she should stay and help the wounded.
—————
https://preview.redd.it/0cjp20dko3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=7163c60f8d17219db5fd9ff65fb3cabded30f15b
Mudrock:
Sarkaz Soldier: We’re just going to let ourselves be used by them like this?
Mudrock:
Sarkaz Soldier: … If they actually borrowed the name of “Reunion”, what would happen?
Mudrock: … They surely will declare so.
Mudrock: We will be hunted down.
Mudrock: A city of this size can’t deal with us, but… but what if it’s an entire mobile city?
Sarkaz Soldier: Leithanien is filled with cities and high towers. All those bankers and musicians and nobles watching over the land, any one of them is troublesome enough.
Mudrock: Arrogance will destroy them.
Sarkaz Soldier: And arrogance is what allowed Leithanien's dirty invasiveness to be controlled.
Sarkaz Soldier: Perhaps we should stop involving ourselves in Wolumonde. If we continue, we will be left without options.
In the Assembly Hall, Greythroat asks Severin how the identity of the corpses are confirmed, since according to the rioters they encountered, there were four infected who died in the fire, but Severin has said prior that there were only three.
Outside the Assembly Hall, the uninfected townspeople are also gathering. Angry at the destruction of their homes and the people who were hurt by the infected, they want to fight against the “traitors”.
As she is taking care of the wounded, Suzuran meets an old man who calls himself a Wintergeist. He tells Suzuran the story of the Wintergeists, how most of them left the region or married people from Wolumonde, and how he escaped into the Wolumonde underground while Severin took care of the last ones who still fought against the city.
Old Man: But… hey… as a Wintergeist, when I first saw the boiling furnace move the city, was I angry? Did I feel helpless? I only remember that I cried.
Old Man: It was surging, burning, unstoppable… how could I take it on with my bow and shortsword? I fell in love with it… with this murder weapon…
Old Man: … But Biederman did it, that sly kid… a catastrophe messenger, an outsider, did what I didn’t dare to do my entire life…
Suzuran: —W, wait, grandpa! Did you, did you say Biederman—?
Suzuran: I remember that it’s the name of a Leithanien catastrophe messenger, but he should’ve died in the fire—
Old Man: Oh? Then I’m not sure… it was indeed him who were giving the orders.
A catastrophe messenger who is supposed to be dead is commanding the rioters.

TW-7: Mountains Collapsing

Folinic asks Severin for all the information regarding the catastrophe messenger Biederman. If he’s still alive, then he could very possibly have instigated the riot. Because of the Great Rift catastrophe, many people in town blamed him for it, and there were many violent incidents involving him. Despite him helping out Anton’s work after she found him, Severin believes that he may still hold a grudge against the townspeople.
Outside, it suddenly became quiet. The uninfected people have somehow found out about “Reunion”, and acted on their own and surrounded Twelfth Note Street. In their strongpoint, a Sarkaz soldier finds Mudrock and informs her of the situation. Mudrock thinks that the angry people are using the infected as a scapegoat. She tells the soldier that they will be hunted down if they act against the civilians, but the soldier replies that the same would happen if they escape.
Sarkaz Soldier: According to Sarkaz traditions, it’s simple. We’ll destroy this city, destroy everything. It's not hard.
Sarkaz Soldier: The most troublesome defenses, those automated casting devices, have stopped functioning due to the riots.
Sarkaz Soldier: Just give the order, and the moon will forever remain on the barren Wintergeist Mountains. Spring… won't come.
Mudrock: … This year's winter, will be long.
Sarkaz Soldier: Now, decide, Mudrock.
The infected and uninfected are already starting to fight. They accused each other, pushing all the blame onto the opposite side. Yet it seemed as if they didn’t know why they were arguing or fighting. They didn’t know why they took up weapons and went into the battle to their lives away.
But now, before my eyes, they’re fighting, wanting to kill each other, and they’re insulting, cursing, blaming, pushing responsibilities.
How strange.
At the same time, Mudrock prepares to march into battle.

After inspecting the scene, Greythroat believes that, contrary to what Severin thought about it being a planned revolt, it was simply a violent riot. Folinic poisons the rioters with a medicine that causes hallucination and vomiting and asks them about Biederman, but none knows who she’s talking about.
The infected have taken over the surrounding streets, and many are still trapped in Twelfth Note Street. As an armed conflict is inevitable, Severin wants to at least reduce casualties to a minimum. However, his disease acts up again, and Folinic discovers that he is infected. He asks Folinic to hide his oripathy, and he will admit to the residents that he caused the fire, and become the scapegoat in order to calm the unrest.
Folinic brings him back to the Assembly Hall, and runs into Greythroat who brings news: they found Biedermann. He was found dead near a Gramophone, with ice originium Arts residue on his skin. Evidence shows that he has been killed in the riot several hours ago. Click and Ayerscarpe investigated his home, and found messages from Contingency Contract—he planned to cause the riot to make sure that more people would survive, and the fire was to attract external attention and aid. His death was also within the plan.
https://preview.redd.it/uipqqnj3p3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=a36422a3d799b26503567ff72fd86667988372e9
Yet the riot hasn’t stopped with Biederman’s death. Mudrock’s squad appears, and the infected cheer for Reunion.
Mudrock: … Stop. At ease.
Sarkaz Soldier: Yes… now, we’re only a step away.
Mudrock: … One step can destroy this city.
Mudrock: But we won’t leave behind hope and continuity. They shout liberation, but they will only liberate anger and hatred. This is just a common, dirty march.
Sarkaz Soldier: Really? I actually don't mind. At this point, things can’t be wrapped up nicely.
Mudrock: This is the last chance… a chance for them, before we take this final step.
Sarkaz Soldier: … A chance to surrender?
Mudrock: No… A chance to resist, a chance for them to show their faith. Let us and them, on everyone's behalf… fight.
Sarkaz Soldier: A lot of effort for no return. As a mercenary, you're always the one to do that.
Sarkaz Soldier: Whatever, I'll listen to you.
Mudrock: Then—
Mudrock: —Soil and stone, rise.

TW-8: Sunken Moonlight

The last Gramophone is destroyed. The rioters set fire to the buildings, and many residents are consumed by the flames.
Sarkaz Soldier: Chaos. This city was never together, like a cake cut into pieces.
Sarkaz Soldier: Now, the last piece will crumble into sand. They don't have the strength.
Sarkaz Soldier: Even if we stop, even if we retreat, can they really survive?
Sarkaz Soldier: Leithanien will abandon them.
Sarkaz Soldier: The closest two mobile cities, the twenty-four high towers, not a single person of significance can see the struggles of a small city in the Wintergeist Mountains.
Folinic is at a loss. If Biederman is dead, then their last lead on the culprit is gone. Suzuran tries to stop the rioters alone, and is saved by Greythroat and Folinic. Severin’s forces are being pushed back, many are wounded, and Rhodes Island must try to stop this riot.
Sarkaz Soldier: … It's Rhodes Island. You're placing your hopes on a few kids.
Sarkaz Soldier: They're not mature enough. They couldn't stop all of this. It's too late.
Mudrock: … But they, are already warriors.
Sarkaz Soldier: Oh—?
Mudrock: The warriors have already entered the battle.
Mudrock: Have the others stand down.
Mudrock: We're moving in.
The Sarkaz ripped off the symbol of Reunion. She raised her hand, and stones crumbled and reformed.
The battlefield fell into silence. The rioters moved aside, and the resistors stepped back in fear.
And she took a step forward.
—————
The wounded townspeople bring Tatjana back to the Assembly Hall, just as Severin is leaving to meet Reunion. She pleads for him to not throw his life away, but he has made his decision. He appears before Mudrock as Reunion is fighting Rhodes Island, announcing that the true culprit, Biederman, has been "found and taken to the Assembly Hall by Rhodes Island operators.The rioters, however, wouldn't listen.
“Don't listen to his ramblings! Is it important who the culprit is!?
“What we want is for the infected to no longer be oppressed, for the poor to no longer lay down their lives for the nobles! The Wintergeists can reclaim their land!
“We are Reunion—we will pioneer a new age—!”
Mudrock tells Severin that it's useless. Even if they fought, the winter and famine will still destroy this city. Severin chooses to believe in Rhodes Island and asks Mudrock to kill him, and Mudrock assures him that they will leave after his death, and stop the rioters from acting out.
As she is about to kill him, Suzuran stops her. The rest of Rhodes Island arrives to control the rioters. Folinic tells Mudrock that this is the city that Anton wanted to protect, so Rhodes Island will protect it too. Mudrock says that the infected have the right to fight too, but Folinic says they are only causing more destruction, and tells Mudrock that the culprit is already dead.
Mudrock: … I see.
Mudrock:
Mudrock: —We're retreating.
Armed Infected: What? But we…
Mudrock: I said, retreat.
Mudrock: If it's only a few… there's a way to cross the Great Rift and return to the warm areas.
Mudrock: No matter if you want to reclaim your land or take revenge on the rich… you'll all fall victim to the permafrost.
Mudrock: Do you want to last through the winter with your anger, or do you want to find warmth from burning the corpses of the innocent?
Mudrock: Since the culprit is dead, we should retreat.
Rioting Residents: But, but we will claim Wolumonde! It's our land!
Sarkaz Soldier: Shut up, Wintergeist. You only want rights. The right to comfortably hide behind the strong and pick up their trash.
Sarkaz Soldier: Don't question the leader, and get smarter, or I'll throw you into the barrens.
Mudrock summons a golem with her life force to scare the rioters into obedience, and the other armed infected leave the city. Before Reunion leaves, one of the Sarkaz soldiers lend Severin a match for his smoke.
With the sound of crumbing stones, the Sarkaz turned their heads.
The street is burning.
The rioters leave, and the only reason why another conflict hasn’t arisen is only due to fear and intimidation.
The last piece of rock fell to the ground.

TW-ST-2: Above the Ashes

https://preview.redd.it/lx6q76sap3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=3d928134c8f1fcd11b831190e0548a5c911d28e4
Back in the Assembly Hall, Ayerscarpe informs the group that without further evidence, Biederman being the culprit is nothing more than a suspicion. Ayerscarpe believes that, in order for more people to survive, murdering a Rhodes Island operator to attract outside attention isn’t implausible, although he finds it odd that Biederman will bet the fate of the city on Rhodes Island. Severin disagrees, since the casting device used as the murder weapon can only used by Leithaniens, but Biederman wasn’t from Leithanien and only arrived here half a year ago.
Severin then asks about Tatjana, and Greythroat tells him that she’s fine. She asks Severin to come to Rhodes Island for a checkup, and the latter notices that she’s shaking. Greythroat admits that she’s still scared of the infected, and apologizes. Severin tells her about the last Wintergeist elder, and how he was stabbed in the chest with an originum shard.
Ayerscarpe planned out the route to return to Rhodes Island. Greythroat has left already to meet someone, and Folinic went to find her.
The townspeople are arguing in the Assembly Hall about whether or not Severin should continue to be the head of the city, and whether the nobles will be upset. Someone spots a convoy approaching, flying the gendarme squad’s flag.
When the crowd is arguing, the former officer, Severin Hawthorn himself has fallen asleep.
He had a dream. He dreamt of the moon marching on the bright plains, dreamt of the women gazing at the stars, and the men rebuilding the pointy towers.
He dreamt of a giant that arose from the ground. It was his deceased son. He dreamt that giant blew away the catastrophe clouds, and filled the rift with godly powers.
He dreamt that the giant lifted up his home, and stepped towards the place where the snow had melted.
He dreamt that the giant was Wintergeist, and he was snow and water, the origin, the intersection between the wild and civilization. The giant remains upright.
He’s tired, but the violent bronchospasm couldn’t bring him back into reality.
He dreamt of himself holding a scythe. He dreamt of the golden wheat fields.
In the dream he smiled. He smiled as he cried.
It was the first time he cried since losing his son.

TW-S-1: Three Giants

A flashback.
After the Great Rift, Severin puts Biederman in one of the guest rooms in the Assembly Hall, as there have been many people looking for trouble with him after the Great Rift catastrophe. The wedding of the nobles is still ongoing, and the gendarmes are still not back. However, Biederman can already foresee the famine.
A week later, Dr. Anton from Rhodes Island breaks down his doors and drags him out. She wants him to help her treat the infected, and without a reason to decline, Biederman accepts.
Later, Severin tells Biederman that many new infected caused by the catastrophe had gathered in Twelfth Note Street, and that food supplies are running low. When Biederman returns to his room, he finds a letter from Contingency Contract.
A voice suddenly calls out to him from the other side of the door. The voice says he was trying to take care of the wedding, and should’ve returned to Wolumonde earlier, but failed. He mentions the doctor, but Biederman says he shouldn’t involve innocent people in his plan. The voice answers that they have no coince, but at least after this incident, Wolumonde will attract enough attention.
Biederman: You want to draw Rhodes Island over… ?
???: Ah… in our numerous collaborators, Rhodes Island is at the end of the list. At least on the surface.
???: We can’t expect them to save an entire city.
Biederman: Then… what you want is the riot itself.
???: I’ll find some excuse over at the high towers. Only with a fire will those nobles see the tragedies on this land.
???: Sigh, sometimes I really can’t tell if they’re too corrupted to see what’s going on, or they’re simply so far off from the ground.
Biederman: But, but many people will die…
???: Many people will die regardless. When Wolumonde’s condition turns worse, then there are plenty of reasons for a conflict within this mess of a city.
???: Not to mention… in the groups that followed Wolumonde, there are some special infected mixed in. They are armed, resistors. They will bring conflict.
???: If that’s the case, why don’t we pave the path for them, so as little people die as possible.
The voice tells Biederman that this is the chance to atone for his sins. Unless he’s killing all of the good people and saving the evil people, he wouldn't hesitate—but who knows who is good and who is evil. If all goes well, both of them will die in this riot. “All for the sake of more lives.”
When Biederman opens the door, he only finds shards of ice on the ground. Then the voice appears again and asks him what he’ll do if the doctor died. Biederman says that even if he wanted to stir up trouble, it could be done without Anton’s death. The voice reminds him that he’s sure those infected will stir up trouble anyway, and if Biederman wants to protect the doctor, he could. As long as he is capable of doing so.
???: Well… you can underestimate me. After all it took me great effort to escape from my pursuers.
???: Tsk tsk, using ice Arts to hide myself in the snow, I’m almost freezing to death from my own Arts.
???: But don’t underestimate the possibilities birthed from Wolumonde. The worst possibilities.
???: Oh… you’ll kill me?
???: You won’t. In fact, in order to force one side to compromise, you will help the other side.
Biederman: Not necessarily. Thorwald… no matter who you have in mind, you are an accomplice. You committed a capital offense.
???: All right, all right… you can act as how you see fit when the time is right, but not now.
???: … And, I have to thank you. I originally thought to give “this” to some random angry uninfected, and wait for it to happen.
Biederman: … This is, the core of a casting device, where did you get it?
???: The Gramophones. That Gramophone. See it?
???: After it’s done, I’ll wait for you there.
???: That’s my grave, haha… it’s pretty close.
Biederman: You’re scared.
???: You always will be.

TW-S-2: Mourning Bouquet

Mudrock tells her fellow Sarkaz and infected that they will be going back to Kazdel. She then leaves for a certain place.
https://preview.redd.it/15eq307hp3a51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=d0e7611a054f0083010ad409288d85bdb88f1587
At the burnt campsite, Folinic finds Greythroat. Folinic remarks that Greythroat has changed a lot since the Lungmen incident. Mudrock also arrives with new wildflowers. Although many have died in the riots, Folinic doesn’t blame Mudrock for it. Greythroat suggests abandoning the Reunion symbol, but Mudrock says that there are too many non-combatants in her squad, and she couldn’t decide their fate for them. She then asks about Big Bob, but Folinic doesn’t know who he is.
Folinic: Where can you go?
Mudrock: Kazdel.
Folinic: Kazdel, that’s not a nice place.
Mudrock: We’re not nice folks, Rhodes Island.
Mudrock: Real “nice places” won’t accept us.
In the end, Mudrock leaves, and Folinic's group brings Anton's body back to Rhodes Island.

SOAC - The next best thing besides a SPAC ESG ETF

SOAC - The next best thing besides a SPAC ESG ETF
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has risen greatly in popularity in recent time. With many factors (including Covid) raising awareness around ESG it would appear there has never been a better time to invest in this market trend/values (besides maybe six months ago).
Government subsidies, decarbonization, climate change, industrial/infrastructure upgrades, technological advancements, ESG popularity, greenwashing and police brutality are but a few of the catalysts favouring ESG focused companies (ETFs, funds and SPACs like SPAQ/SOAC). The recent growth in EV market, solar stocks, renewable energy, Tesla, the Juneteenth stock’s and the green energy market (including SPACs - NKLA SHLL SPAQ) are but a few of the benefiters of this “movement” to date.
It’s not just day trading millennials (beckys/RH) who love this stuff but hedge funds are also benefiting from this trend (that is here to stay). It might be a personal belief of mine coupled with my passion for environmentalism but market trends do not lie (although can pop) – and if I can profit from this, why not?
SPAQ SHLL SOAC FMCI BMRG HCCH NKLA BLNK DGLY SOLO EVSI NIO UONE BYFC FMCI BYND RUN WKHS TSLA SHRM.. - a few quick/recent examples of companies with strong ESG verticals absolutely crushing the market. I watched the rise of DKNG (Atlanta fan haha) and NKLA (no product lol) but took a pass because I didn’t fully understand SPACs at the time - don’t be that guy..
Furthermore, ESG funds tend to outperform traditional investments (during downturns - like covid – and some SPACs were a safe haven (because of something called Escrow).
It seems like we need a SPAC ETF ESG focused on some of the above mentioned.. more like needed it six months ago (imagine the returns $$$)??
Very Basic (and inconclusive without further) Market Research:

The ESG SPAC Space:
There are a few (openly) ESG focused SPACs right now - SOAC is arguably the best. When you invest in a SPAC remember – you are investing in the team ie management, UW, legal and institutional backing (follow the money) C.R.E.A.M.
Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp.SOAC
Structure:
345m - 100% still in Trust18mo term – I like the short term (maybe we see a CCXX or BMRG early announcement)IPO May 6 2020 – Love the confidence of IPOing in the face of Covid½ Warrant/UnitCitigroup running the books soloKirkland and Ellis & Davis Polk and Wardwell are lawyers involvedCrescent term threshold of $9.2
Business Proposal:
“We believe that there are significant, attractive investment opportunities that exist within industries that benefit from strong Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) profiles. While investing in ESG covers a broad range of themes, we are focused on evaluating suitable targets that have existing environmental sustainability practices or that may benefit, both operationally and economically, from our management team’s commitment and expertise in executing such practices. We believe our management team’s experience allows us to evaluate targets in industries such as manufacturing (including auto, building materials), chemicals, services (including waste, environmental, construction), logistics (including transportation, distribution), technology (hardware, software, devices), agriculture (including biofuels) and energy (with focus on renewable generation, utility services, energy efficiency/management), among others. Furthermore, our target universe could include companies undergoing a transition to increase their environmental sustainability profiles, reflecting an opportunity to bring environmentally sustainable practices to companies that may not have historically been focused on environmental sustainability. We believe there is a wide array of companies undergoing this “brown-to-green” transition in our target universe. Companies in our target universe tend to have stable growth rates and would greatly benefit from access to public market capital.”

“The SOAC management team has extensive experience in operating and managing sustainability initiatives within a wide range of companies and industries throughout the U.S.”

SPAC Risks:
SPAC’s tend to be 50/50 after merger IMOPotential EV or ESG bubble might be formingDoes anyone have an example of a SPAC in the last 15 years (or later) that has liquidated and didn’t pay out?(I honestly haven’t looked)I see 0.1% risk in SPAC shares/units long term (thanks to escrow)
Final Thoughts:
Future (disruptive) ESG companies (like PureCycle) might want to try and avoid previous mistakes (like UBER) by going the public via the SPAC route... Its kind of a thing these days (thank you Covid) and helps them to make more money faster, price their deal properly/more efficiently and gain (those all-important wall street) connections – I see you SPAQ .. also anyone else see spacs drop in the WSJ?
Completely speculative possible ESG SPAC’s – IPOC/IPOB, HCAC/JIH, GMHI/NPA, SBE/ALUS/TDAC, **KCAC/**SSPK, or JWS/PTSH? Who else are we missing?? Who else will pivot like SHLL, SPAQ, HCCH or get a BlackRock PIPE??
Disclaimer: This is not investment advice and I have positions in some of the above.
TLDR: ESG trend is here to stay and SOAC is a ESG SPAC with great a great team

Urban Trade Breakdowns: Black Monday Part Two - OG New Normal Money Trading

I’m prolly gonna call it quits with this one but I wanted to post the black Monday part two. sorry about the length. its been fun, motherfuckers. Peace out.
Before 1776, you didn’t need to know math and shit to understand economics. Because back then, if a country was 1/3 of the world’s population (like India in year 1 AD), it was 1/3 of the global economy. And if a country had 1/4 of the world’s population (like China at the time), it was 1/4 of the global economy. Because before tractors and electricity and shit were invented during the industrial revolution, which was in full swing by 1776, a motherfucker could only hunt or gather or grow so much shit on any given plot of land. If a country ran out of land, it ran out of food, and its people starved, which kept both population and economic growth in check. And that explains all that old world raping and pillaging and conquering of land, because up to that point, economic growth meant one thing, more land.
But after the industrial revolution, a motherfucker could grow or produce a shit-ton more on any given plot of land, which meant if you could out-think and out-machine the other guy, you could make legit fuck-you cash money without a crown or an army, which was some new shit at the time. And to explain all this, in 1776 Adam Smith wrote a book called An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations and invented economics. And thank god for that, because for roughly 300,000 years before Smiths book, people believed that successful crops and hunts and shit was the work of the gods. What Smith taught us is that economic production in the post-industrial era is not the work of god, but instead the the work of invisible hands. And this changed everything.
It just so happened that the same year Smith invented economics, the United States of America was invented, a frontier refuge for wild-eyed fortune seekers and reject religious mystics, and in America all that new money magic found one fuck of a home. And for the next hundred years or so, Americans went ape shit building their country while experimenting with all this new money magic, hustling and slaughtering their way across the Wild West to the Pacific Ocean leaving a trail of over 1000 banks and more than 8000 different paper currencies.
But by 1849, with no more land to settle, everyone realized that the US paper money situation was out of control and what the world really needed was some kinda universal non-bullshit currency everyone could agree on. And fuck, it just so happened gold was discovered in California that year, and thats some shiny-ass universal cash-money bling everyone could agree on.
So for the next hundred years, as the rest of the old world warred themselves broke killing each other over land all old school like, America built new and improved machines and hoarded gold until finally, by the end of WWII, America totally owned that shit and became the pimp daddy boss-man of global money. I mean, America had most of the worlds gold which meant America had all the money in the world. So to seal the deal, in 1944 the US invited all those broke-ass bitch money countries to a hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire and explained how global money shit was gonna work moving forward: the US would own and manage the worlds gold supply and set the price of gold and peg the US dollar to gold which they alone would exclusively control. Meanwhile everyone else would peg their bitch-ass money to the dollar. Or they were commies, in which case, they still had to peg their money to dollars if they wanted to buy the shit they needed from the west, but only after converting it at shitty exchange rates on the black market. And the rest of the world, seeing how their paper shit compared to all that US gold, they were like, cool.
With all the worlds money newly interconnected and global, shit got really fucking complicated. Thankfully, to explain it all, in 1934 a dude named John Maynard Keynes wrote the The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money and invented macro economics, which, compared to Adam Smith, was like the New Testament of money: same God, different rules.
Or maybe exactly like that. I mean, what does it say on the US dollar. It says “in God we trust”. Fuck, the US constitution doesn’t even say that. This was some holy fucking shit they were dealing with and they knew it. So taking a page from Ancient Rome, in 1913 the US Congress built 13 stone columned temples across the land to house a select group of non-elected financial holy men to guide the magic hands. This was called The Federal Reserve Bank of the United States of America, and to this day, that’s where we go to pray when money shit gets really fucked up in the world.
In the decades that followed WWII, shit was pretty good in the USA and Americans spent like fat-ass type-2 diabetic SSRI-happy sun-burnt Florida Lottery winners. Which was fucking great for a while, but by the early 1970’s, the debt started to pile up. And well, everyone knows the 70’s was a total shit decade in American history. In fact, by the early 70’s, the country was a fucking mess, unemployment was 6.1%, and inflation (some old-school economic shit you can Google), was 6.2%. Which would suck for any US President to deal with, especially in an election year. Because dealing with a troubled economy requires leadership and sacrifice, which is a hard sell to American voters in the best of times and imfuckingpossible for a dude like Richard Milhous Nixon. So after months of praying to the Fed for a re-election miracle, Nixon had an idea. Well, it wasn’t really his idea, it was something his 42 year-old Undersecretary of the Treasury for Monetary Affairs, a guy by the name of Paul Volcker, had been pitching for a while. Basically, Volcker realized that the US was the pimp-daddy of all the worlds money, which meant US money was the only game in town, which meant the US treasury could wipe their ass with newly printed dollars and the world would still pimp their sisters to get their dirty little war-torn broke-ass fingers on the shit. So fuck, why back the money with gold? That shit was just a whole lotta extra work, what with all that settling of account balances and interest rates and shit. Fuck that.
You get the point, and so did Nixon. He was a fucking hustler at heart plus he was the fucking President of the United States and if Volcker was right, de-pegging the dollar to gold would mean he could manipulate the fuck out of the invisible hands. Like printing billions or paper dollars to distribute to smart-money Wall Street campaign donors to “invest” in stocks and jack up asset prices putting a few imaginary paper dollars in the pockets of struggling main-Street dumb money investor-voters, or debase the value of US money just enough to drive down prices of shit-rate US exports to win back market share from Germany and Japan.
But just one problem, Fed Chair Arthur Burns who was like, wait, what?
Ok, so here’s the thing, Nixon was a fucking sleazeball who would give zero fucks to just bulldozing those sanctimonious unelected Fed motherfuckers. But 1973 was an election year and he needed a story to trash a century old global economic order. I mean, what he really needed was an enemy, some fucking non-English speaking Illuminati motherfucker lurking in the shadows and threatening American jobs, because Americans eat that shit up. So in August 1971, Nixon took to prime time television and announced to an Aaron Spelling-loving TV-dinner-eating Vietnam-weary America that “International money speculators” were destroying the value of he dollar and costing American jobs. Which may seem like some obvious fucking ludicrous-mode political bullshit, but in the early 70s, shit was legit hard economically for a lot of Americans. And politicians understand that shit because at that level, when you get to be president, rule number one is that when shit is both mysterious and fucked up, never try and explain it - leave that shit to the losing party - instead find a villain and tell your people how you’re gonna fuck that motherfucker up. That pretty much always works. Because the universe is as much a fucking mystery today as it has been for over 300,000 years, a complex system that our pleasure-seeking, story-telling monkey brains are not wired to understand. Unemployment? Inflation? Fuck, we still can’t explain that shit. We are wired to survive in the wilderness and we know a threat when we see it, which is some primal brain hard-coded survival shit, like a rustle in the bush beyond the light of the campfire, it gets our hearts beating and bonds us as a tribe behind the dude with the biggest club. Until he gets eaten by fucking bears. But whatever, in the moment we’ll believe whatever he fuck he says. And what Nixon said was that we can’t trust money to both gold and god. We had to chose. So he de-coupled the dollar from gold and henceforth, and to this day, money became faith.
The day after the Nixon announcement, the Dow rose 33 points, its biggest daily gain ever at that point. A New York Times editorial read, "We unhesitatingly applaud the boldness with which the President has moved." Which may have been “bold” and all, but it was also a fucking disaster. In the two years that followed, gold rose nearly 300%, from 43 to over 120, and the US suffered three quarters of negative GDP growth while unemployment exceeded 9% and inflation nearly doubled, hovering in the range of 10-12%, prompting global currencies to go all ape-shit searching for some semblance of fair market value in the hunger-games free for all that was the post gold global economy.
But fuck, that was one fuck of a good time to be trading currencies. Which brings us, fuck finally, to the trade...
A few years later, Andy Krieger was a graduate student in South Asian philosophy and a competitive athlete at Penn, committed to making the world a better place. Aw. But one morning, after a long night translating some obscure Sanskrit text, he got to thinking: academia is a fucking slog, the kind of job where you had to wait for some old bearded wizard to die to get ahead. So the next day he met with his dissertation advisor and announced that he was gonna drop out of the graduate program and enroll at Wharton to translate the ancient mysteries of money. And with the world just starting to make sense of all the newly floated currencies and all kinds of crazy new financial instruments like options, Krieger was instantly hooked.
This was 1984, and few traders know what a currency option was, let alone how to price one. Black Sholes was a new-new thing and computers were non-existent. But Krieger saw the potential of all this shit and knew he could use these instruments in a very powerful way so while still a student, he joined a Chicago options trading firm and learned the ropes and after returning to Wharton, he wrote a computer program to price options that relied on assumptions no one else was thinking about at the time. This got him noticed by Solomon Brothers and then Bankers Trust. And there, after a run of hugely profitable trades no one really understood, in 1987, the CEO of Bankers Trust gave him $700m to trade. And fuck me, with option leverage, this meant next-level shit tons of billions.
On October 19th, 1987, on what became known as Black Monday, the DJIA fell 22.6%, the largest single day percentage drop in history. But Krieger was cool. He watched the world dump dollars and flood into alternative currencies, many of which were small and tied to struggling economies. But Krieger knew this was a panic flight to anywhere but the Wall Street carnage. He also knew that as soon as the markets settled, the fast money would head right back to the safety of the dollar and their currencies would revert. So with $700m and 400:1 leverage, Krieger placed his bets, the largest of which was a short against the New Zealand dollar (the Kiwi), eventually taking a position greater than the entire New Zealand monetary supply. And fuck, at the same time, Krieger had complex positions in the British Pound and the German Mark and even another short in the USD. At any given time, Krieger had over $40B in trades in float fluctuating over $20m in value at any given time.
And then, with markets swinging wildly, as the Kiwi drops just 5% against the dollar, Krieger exits everything for a profit of $300m. Fuck.
After exiting the trade, with Wall Street a walking-dead financial dystopia, Krieger quit the game completely and retired to some island in the Caribbean. In the aftermath, regulators started to poke around at the one bank who booked a profit, based entirely on Krieger’s trading while Wall Street melted and an accounting scandal ensued involving Arthur Anderson, the auditor of Bankers Trust, which you could literally cut and past into the post-Enron economy of 2001. Meanwhile, the New Zealand government was crying foul publicly while privately counting their Kiwi blessings that Krieger had successfully tanked their money making NZ exports competitive on the global market. At the time it was a total money shit show, as quaint as that may seem today.
In the years that followed, Soros did the same kind of shit and made $1B breaking the Bank of England and then a shit-ton more shorting the Thai Baht. And there were other cool-ass macro money mega trades but by the late 90s, all that shit came to an end as the central banks came to realize what the politicians had long known: when some threat creeps in from the economic wilderness and shit gets crazy and mysterious, our monkey brains turn to the dudes with the biggest club. And central banks have the big clubs. Until they get eaten by bears. But so far, that hasn’t happened.

Tips for Huuuge Casino Slots

Here are some tips for those who are are working on Huuuge Casino. The tips also apply to Billionaire Casino.

  1. Make sure to get Free chips (ex. site)
  2. Join a club that is atleast level 20 that completes daily events.
    1. You can use the Advanced Search to specify level. I would also recommend increasing the member size too.
    2. Collect Free chips from the Club Wall as they become available
  3. While playing slots, send Likes and Connect with others as new players show up.
    1. This will increase how many Daily Chips you get (max 100 likes, max 25 friends)
    2. You can also bulk send Connect requests to all members of your Club once you join one
  4. Collect Free chips from the Shop
    1. Lower right corner, on timer
  5. Collect Free chips from Betty Bonus
    1. Lower left corner of lobby, on timer
  6. Collect and save your lottery tickets until atleast level 100
    1. The lottery prizes increase once you hit level 100. ( u/JefeTomas12 )
    2. You should always see a timer going on the lottery button for earning another lottery ticket. If you don't, enter the lottery area and then exit to get the timer going again.
  7. Use Baccarat or Roulette to grind
    1. It is usually recommended to reach level 65 before doing baccarat or roulette because that is when the 10M betting table opened up. Even before 65 I would use the these to get the most out of my 5min x2 XP boosts.
    2. Always start a private room. To do this, go to the menu with the roulette table options. Hold your finger on a table and a pop up will appear with an option of creating a private table. This will significantly speed things up as you wont have to wait for other players to bet!
    3. Baccarat has slightly better odds at keeping your money for longer, however I felt that it was much slower per game even with a private room. It also looks like baccarat gives less XP per 10M bet then Roulette, but I did not verify the exact amount. I estimated almost hafl. I would recommended Roulette during x2 XP if you have the chip cushion at the very least.
      1. Baccarat = (.458 banker win odds * .975) + (.446 player win odds * 1) + (.096 tie odds * 1) = .989 average percentage of bet won
      2. Roulette = (.947 red or black win odds * 1) + (.053 0 or 00 win odds * 00 = .947 average percentage of bet won
    4. For roulette:
      1. Choose your total bet amount and place 1/2 on Red and 1/2 on Black. You will have a high probability of getting your money back with this method to allow for longer grinding. You will only lose if the wheel hits 0 or 00.
    5. For baccarat:
      1. Choose your total bet amount and place 1/2 on Player and 1/2 on Bank. You will have a high probability of getting all your money back with this method to allow for longer grinding. You will only lose a small amount of money in the case of the Bank winning (250,000 on a 10M total bet).
  8. ALWAYS utilize x2 XP power ups, even at lower levels
    1. This is the time to add a bit of risk for a higher reward, especially when betting on roulette where the risk is far less. Max out betting on roulette as much as you can, its worth it, especially if it means you level up and get the next level's rewards.
    2. From u/Greenoverzz: If you have x2 XP for 5 minute, click the spin button instead of auto as it tends to be faster
    3. You can get x2 XP for 24 hours from the lottery wheel, which is the best reward by far ( u/JefeTomas12 )
    4. From levels 1-80, you will receive a 5 minute x2 XP boost every 5 levels. Starting at level 81, you will receive a 5 minute x2 XP boost every level. It is good to plan for this. If you have the chips for it, you can use that x2 XP boost plus betting 10M on roulette to shoot you from 81 to approximately 125 without running out of XP boost.
If you're looking at a level 200 offer from Huuuge Casino, it is really difficult even with the above tips to complete in 7 days. It might be possible in a 14+ day window. Obviously you can make it easier by spending a little money, but I don't like making tip guides based on spending money. That's probably just me.
If you do want to spend money, your first purchase is discounted so make it count! u/TheOofsterInTF2 commented that once you reach level 100 or so, you will get a $8.99 800+ million chip pack offer. If you are interested in getting this pack, remember to not make any other purchases before this. They reached level 200 in 6 days (see their post here). They also commented they had to grind 15+ min per level towards the end, which is really mind numbing to me. If you want to spend less, there should be a $1.99 option with a couple million chips and a lot of bronze tickets ( u/JefeTomas12 ). The tickets can help complete the bronze puzzle or score you that x2 24hr XP boost!
Enjoy and Good Luck!
