What is the reason for the strange order of threads in that particular forum? Can't notice any pattern.

Most recent news is always on top. That's the order and the reason.

Hmm the problem is that updates to news will not bump the thread back to the first page and will thus go completely unnoticed. Should a new thread be created in that case? Or maybe a moderator messaged to get the thread moved to CG General Discussion instead.

No, creating new threads on the same topic is a quick way to annoy the FLs and Admins. You can either subscribe to the thread you are interested in or sort the forum by most recent post.

It's set this way so that threads which are months old do not continue to float to the top and block the most current news from appearing there.

You could always use the Display Options settings at the bottom of the forum page.

That works for me, but not for anyone who has either not subscribed to the thread or also set the preferences the same way and might still be interested in the news.

Well that's the solution. The News is sorted in Thread Created date by default. Users can change it to Last Post order if they so wish.
