Wan the Avatar, the highest finishing non-staff member of May's ladder, has chosen to have a Monferno mouse cursor icon in the Scavengers Room intro, so check that out the next time you're in scavs!

The ladder twist for the month of June will be: After the 5th finisher of an official hunt, any finishers within the next 180 seconds will receive 1 point on the ladder. (The 180 seconds is measured from the exact time of the 5th finish onward.) If no one finishes within this extra time, the 5th place finisher receives 5 points instead of 1. This twist does not apply to mini's!

Get out there and solve some officials this month!
