 The Reservoir Warez Report, July 1996 by MR.WHITE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Releasing rules:

- Only final release-version of games will be rated
- Only games within the 50 disk limit will be rated
- Only games using the english language will be rated
- Only games not earlier released on floppy will be rated

- Non-working games not fixed will be rated without any
  points at all.
- Non-working games that are fixed within a 5 day period
  will be rated with -1 point for each fix needed...
- Games badly stripped/cracked will be rated -1 point
- A game re-released because of the first copy being
  badly ripped will give the re-releaser full credit
  of the release.
- Addons will only be rated in the score-chart.

 Highlights in July 1996
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We now rate all games within the 50 * 1,44mb limit that was finally accepted
as a new limit by HYBRID, MANTIS, NAPALM, PRESTIGE & RAZOR 1911. Still we will
give lower points to groups that doesn't strip the games properly...

It was also decided to ban all ROR releases. ROR is now known as REFLUX, and
has been given a "chance to start over" by the other groups.

 Corrections from June
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tracer *W95* from PRESTIGE needed a fix                           -01 points

 Goofs in July 1996

Need for Speed overrided the disk limit. Close Combat was first not working.
Napalm then released a fix, still this doesnt work until you ATTRIB it.
Great game but released amatuerly. Still Napalm is one of the better groups
in the month of July. Get your acts together and start with some quality guys!

A slowdown for these people. Prestige has lost some of it's release power from
earlier months. Still, some of the games are very high quality and I expect
for Prestige to fight back in the upcoming weeks...

What can I say ? The BLADE is BACK. Sharp as ever RAZOR 1911 cuts it deep into
the month of July and leaves us all crying blood. A good awakening from the
earlier coma we saw in June. RAZOR 1911 now shows PRESTIGE that they are here
to stay. Let's wait for a bloody august competition.
