I don't know whether it's because of patriotism, but the mercenary badge seems to be relatively rare, at least in my MU (Captains of Industry). I'm going to work on completing mine, and while I do I'm going to record my movements here so that other players can get an idea of how long it takes and how much moving is required.
So far, I've already completed 13 countries:
This time around, I'm going to focus on getting the badge as cheaply as possible, which will mean fighting barehanded and moving as little as possible. There will be a secondary goal, as well: to do as little damage to our allies as possible. I plan to accomplish that by picking and choosing my battles so that I contribute as little as possible.
I'm starting off in Lower Normandy, which is occupied by Poland. I've been in Zone A3 for a while because I could move cheaply between Poland, Ireland and Germany for various Daily Orders. I had planned on staying in Poland to get as many flags as possible before moving, but my Daily Orders are to fight for Australia and on second thought I'm going to move for this one. My plan at this point is to stay in France and get as many flags as possible from MPPs before moving within Zone A3.
So, I'm now at one move and $20.00.
Day 1829 update: got Australia yesterday as DO; got Greece today for DO, and finished off USA as well (was at 19/25).
Day 1830 update: finished Portugal today for DO - was thinking about moving to Greece to get Egypt and Saudi Arabia, but they lost North Caucasus, which was the only $20 move, so I'm going to sit tight another day in France and see what's on tomorrow.
Day 1831 update: I ripped through my stash of energy bars today - I've never had much use for them as 100 health doesn't count for much, and I'm using them while the 50% damage bonus is on - I figure this is when they're at their most useful. I think I went through about 25 today *snort*. Had a big day: got the DO for France today, then finished off Argentina. Italy started a RW today so I got that as well. Spent $40 to move to Turkey and got UAE and Saudi Arabia, finished Iran, and started working on Turkey - that takes me up to 9 countries and $60 in moving costs since I started counting. While in Turkey I should be able to get Taiwan as well.
