All weektop scores are presented to the reader of this emag, as proof of accuracy of the tally. NEWS ~~~~~~~~~ This section will cover Sites and Scene News so if you have anything interesting to spread please msg me prior to our issue releases. O_Matador leaves Motiv8..... Sad News :( Good Luck with any new undertakings. Fubar is on it's way back and I hear the link upgrade is guaranteed and being set up soon. RadioRTS after leaving RTS for a short while to visit Risc has gone back to RTS and from what I see he was warmly welcomed. COD and Lx2 were down this week. Each week I will speak to some top traders from different groups and get their ratings for sites ....Couriers know they work it !!!. HODD'S INTERVIEWS ~~~~~~~~~ This is a new section Hodd from PHX will be interviewing people about their contributions in the scene. Cracking groups come and go, but a group that seems to be here for the long haul is ORiON. Pumping out releases on almost a daily basis, I thought it would be cool to see how they operate. I spoke with Wallace and found out the details of how he operates such a consist process. (hodd) Let's start off by a brief pre-cursor to your ORiON days....how did you begin in this thing we call the scene? (Wallace`) Well, I didn't really start to get into the scene until around early 96. I entered it as a siteop at the time, and was really moving around in what i now know was very unknown groups. I guess the moment when I really was introduced to the scene as I know it today, was when a guy name MetallicX came to me and offered to get my site to be a top one it was called TE, and with that site i was introduced to many great groups at the time PDM, TRPS, etc.. From that point on, I still siteop US sites... currently ** and ***. While I was siteop, i started to get curious about how the groups got releases out and such and decided to pursue into that in TRPS. In that group (during its prime over year ago) i learned the inner workings of the scene and after that started to die down.. i decided I wanted to see the games and cracking part of the scene thats when I jumped into Class and ORiON. A fellow old member of TRPS named Capslock is definitely the guy the brought me into ORiON at the time he described it as a building time for the group. So that covers most of my history up till joining ORiON, most of details I have forgot :) (hodd) quite a story...heh...ORiON tends to release on an almost daily basis, how do you it? Maybe a better question is how do you keep up? :) (Wallace`) Well, i think the key to that is how organized and automated we have made everything in the group, along with the fact that there is never a shortage of brand new supplies. Most of time, its very fun for the crackers and others to hang out and chat.. along with getting work done so it makes it very easy for us to get releases out while relaxing and chatting. Btw, currently I and [B|aZe] lead ORiON, I feel it is important to mention him since he is also a very important part in running the group. (hodd) Would you say that other groups have this kind of relaxed attitude, or do you think the majority just tries to get the meggage? (Wallace`) Well, yeah I think there probably is. However, in all my years in the scene and experiences with groups as siteop.. I have noticed it to be pretty rare. (hodd) Most Utils/Cracking groups have a particular type of software they focus on. What's ORiON's mandate? (Wallace`) heh :) we have none, but we are cracking group. We don't want to limit ourselves to a certain field. Sure , it would be great to completely own one thing.. but i think that would take away from our crackers. It would probably get boring for them.. and they wouldn't see so many different kinds of protections to learn and get better from. (hodd) What role do you personally play in the group? Do you have a hands on approach? (Wallace`) Well, I am a leader in ORiON ([B|aZe] is the other one), and i most definitely have a hands on approach. If you come into the group, you'll see me working just as hard (if not more) than anyone. I'll be packing releases sometimes, duping our supplies, etc... Just because I am leader shouldn't mean i sit back and give orders. That is just stupid in my opinion. If one is capable of leading he should also show those he leads that he will work just as hard as them on the small (sometimes boring) stuff. (hodd) I'm sure alot of courier leaders would agree with you there....has ORiON ever had a merger with another group? (Wallace`) Well, a very long time ago. even before i entered ORiON there was a failed merger with a group called magnum. However, I am happy to say we have lately had a very successful one at the beginning of this month. All KAC members have merged into ORiON, and I must say it is great to have more talented crackers and people around to help. (hodd) What would you say is ORiON's greatest success? (Wallace`) Wow, hard question....I would have to say what I am most proud of is the success of our teamwork and the attitude we all have towards each other. It really makes the group fun to be in. However, I am also proud of the week we got 66 releases out. But I see that record falling soon since we have been getting 40+ a week in 2000 :) (hodd) the 66 week rocked :)....any release that you cracked that made you go "Hell Ya!"? (Wallace`) Well, first thing that comes to mind is the Secure CRT 3 release that one of our oldest cracker Da_DiABLO did. SCRT was eagerly awaited to get out of beta for that version since it took so long. So that felt pretty good. (hodd) yah for sure since 85% of traders need it :)...It seems these days that group hopping seems to be a norm, in the courier scene at least, does ORiON have this problem? (Wallace`) No, we are fortunate to not have this problem at all. Since I have been leader I think we have only had 1 person leave our group for another I believe most of this is due to the attitude of everyone in the group. Everyone has fun. However, we have had many of our crackers approached by other groups.. sometimes repeatedly. It is funny.. cause i have them keep lists of the groups and how many times they ask them, just so we can look back and laugh. (hodd) Does or has ORiON recruit using this method? (Wallace`) No, we never have. I believe anyone who has come to our group directly from another already knew someone in the group. So most of our new people, are either not in groups.. or joining cause they have a friend or know someone in ORiON that they have talked with. (hodd) With sooooo many cracking groups out there, is there competition for releases? and if so does arguments start? (Wallace`) Definitely! There are many cracking groups out their competing every day on releases. Unfortunately I have seen arguments come out of this competition before between groups. However, I am glad to say that ORiON does not engage in public slandering or arguments with other groups. We wont sink down to that immaturity and try to say bad things about others. (hodd) Ok enough about the scene....What does Wallace do when he's not leading in ORiON? (Wallace`) Well, when im not handling all the day to day stuff in ORiON, I just try to have fun and talk with everyone in various channels. But recently I been spending a lot of time on a little project that everyone will be seeing shortly :) I and TecH have been putting together what everyone will know as MCR. Monthly Cracking Report. Until now.. no one has consistently handled information about the cracking scene well. This Monthly report will contain every cracking group with more than 10 releases entire list for the month. And have ranking for most releases, most keygens, and most cracks. We are also going to have a little chat with a different cracker each month :) (hodd) not unless I get to them first :).....welp that wraps it up, thanks for your time and telling the readers a little bit about the scenes best kept secret :) (Wallace`) Sure thing. Greetz to everyone i know :) Well there you have it...let me know what you guys think of this. And if you think your story is worth telling, get in touch with me.

(06/10) Phase (PHS): Slipped a bit this week, but still doing good. No couiers in top 10 again though :/ (05/10) Rise In Superior Couriering (RiSC): Seem to be focusing on euro! Still should be higher in the rankings but it seems they are slipping. Duff did good this week though. #3 :/ (06/10) Request to Send (RTS): WHOAAOAOOA! #2 this week, Dmon did good for them this week. How many groups has he been in? and Dvader!!!! 2 RTS in top 10.
