Today I want to do a new player guide of sorts, and explain what TUP can do for you as a new player. Our focus has always been on nurturing and bringing through the next generation of leaders. In four years we’ve had more Presidents, Ministers and Alliance Leaders than any other party in the UK, and probably more than any other party in the world. We’ve not achieved this because of the number of members we have, but because of the quality. Our training and development is second to none, and that is what I want to talk about today.
When you first join the game as a new player your priorities are money, weapons and learning the basics. Most parties offer help schemes to this end- giving you a few extra pounds for joining, maybe limited supplies. They’ll message you with their views and ask for your support and your vote. This sort of thing is generic and practiced to one degree or another by all UK parties. In TUP we have schemes like this, as well as an unlimited supplies division for the most active players.
But this is only the very first baby step, not the fulfilment of your eRepublik game career. In eRepublik the only limits on how far you can rise are ones you set yourself. TUP has never had more than a quarter of the UK’s voters within its fold, yet it’s won many elections and held a lot of influence. This is because players from all parties and none recognise that many of our players are strong, competent leaders who can guide the UK through the good times and the bad.
Making more leaders like that is our absolute priority, and that’s why we have our training and promotion programs. For players who want to get ahead, we do our best to secure them training positions in the UK government and in the party itself. We give them not only the chance to excel however, but the training you need to be able to do it. TUP is full of active government ministers, ex-Ministers and strong older players who can give you the advice you need. In our channel right now as I’m writing this 66% of players there have served at a Ministerial level or higher- the rest are newer players who are either working as juniors in the government or are working towards doing so. We also have, on a lazy Saturday afternoon, fifteen CP medals amongst the 18 players in our channel right now. The whole active party has double as many.
TUP gives new players a hand up
That’s a lot of knowledge and experience for new players to absorb. When you venture out into the realms of responsibility and reform, it’s good to be able to ask for the opinion of those who have gone before. They can give advice about how they succeeded in their aims, and the hard lessons of failure they learned from their mistakes. We always support players in bringing out their ideas, and by no means do we promote “uniformity” or conservative thinking. Most of the great new policies to come out of TUP in the last two years have been from new players. Most of those with the best ideas - like Talon, our current President, have gone on to achieve great things.
In TUP hard work and dedication is rewarded. Commitment to the UK is the highest virtue, and our congress members are ranked for the elections based on activity, hard work and willingness to volunteer to work for the UK. It’s possible to go from new player right up to government minister in just a few months with the right help and guidance, and that’s help TUP can provide. This is the reason so many players move to TUP from other parties. Once they feel they’ve reached their full potential elsewhere, they come to TUP where we can give them the help they need to make the next step.
In fact this trend is so strong that many people have accused TUP of taking over governments because of our presence there. The truth is that TUP is still a minority party despite its size- it’s never had a majority of party members, never mind voters. We are successful because of our policies and players, not our strength of numbers.
I’m not going to make this a long article. My offer to the UK population and our ex-citizens abroad is this: TUP can fulfil your ambitions, whatever they may be. Provided you’re willing to work hard, listen to others, form opinions of your own and do your best by the country we will give you everything you need to succeed. We can give you financial backing, training, experience, knowledge and introduce you to the right people abroad. Whether it’s the knotty area of international relations that interests you or supporting other new players in the UK, TUP has the power to help you reach that goal.
Fulfil your potential, join TUP.
