I just wanted to write a brief thanks to some truly global citizens who helped me out. I set myself a $300-400 budget to spend on eRep every month and I stick to it like glue. Sure I could spend double that and more, but for the past few months I've given eRep a giant FU due to a range of reasons I won't include here. As a result, TJ has given them the Franklins No Frills treatment.
Due to our ongoing battles I exhausted that into the second week of November on weaps and food for battles.
But all was not lost, a meagre 1.27 million in damage but considering it was one-seventh of the Top 5 spot in the campaign and I'm only a D3 without weaps for the most part, this is a testament to getting that strength up. I pushed up 1k in just over 2 months with gold training boosters. That's really important!
Now to the thanks. There are a few folks I'd like to thank for the help throughout the month.
Prime Minister Ranger Bob for his personal gifts of food and weaps to get NSW back. Much appreciated.
My good friend, fellow ex-Titulian president and the reason I'm here in eRep - eUS citizen Dennis McVicker. Thanks dude once again!
Next, the #brostralia fund and QM James Rellori. Every weap helps in a time of crisis.
Lastly - and this might wake a few people up or at the very least turn heads - GadjahMadaa. A good friend of mine I met via my diplomatic posting in eIndonesia and someone I respected from my time as MoFA.
So you see? eAustralia had it's backside against the wall and out of all the people I could count on to help our the country from wipe .. was an eIndonesian. He wasn't the only one either, but some of the other names serve in high political positions and may want to be anonymous. Just wanted to put that out there the next time someone bangs on about how bad these guys are. They were tied by alliance and game mechanics, so instead they helped out their southern neighbour via supplies. Terimah kasih banyak teman-teman saya!
So how did we do? We're 64-68 in overtime Round 13 against Chile and hanging in there. It's due to the generosity of a lot of people - a truly global community that moves across traditional alliance lines - to come together to help out a neighbour and a friend.
UPDATE: Damage contributed now at 1.4 mill
