Starting with day 1973, SHIELD began doing a daily series of announcements known as 'Daily Briefing and Supply Drop.' This announcement combined the standard briefing given to most military unit soldiers with supply requests. SHIELD soldiers would post in the thread their name, link, whether they completed the daily orders, and what they were requesting: food, weapons, or both. A Quartermaster would then supply the soldier. SHIELD has consistently provided supplies to its members for over 400 days. That is over 40,000 Q7 tanks and over 6,000,000 food (energy) it has supplied to its members.

BamaBettie, Queen of the HAMMERS
This is possibly the most important aspect of the game if you're going to be a fighter. You see that ‘upgrade’ button? Pay attention closely. HAMMER is a program to assist players in upgrading their Free Weight Room to Q4. This will allow the player to train for the most strength (20 a day) for free. These are the upgrade costs. Expensive? Yes they are. Even when there are sporadic discounts. For example, when you see something like this ‘event’ going on this is the best time to upgrade your Training Center.
This is what a fully upgraded FREE training center looks like.

2. You must be in a SHIELD uniform.

I would like to begin by congratulating DMJ for his win over me in the recent POTUS election. It was close to the bitter end, but unfortunately I lost. I know Nation it is disappointing. Apparently being on the ballot is helpful when running for president, but I was regretfully unaware of this fact when I went out on this journey 3 days before the election. Nevertheless I won’t let this failure deter me from my mission of bringing truth, justice, and truth to the world. People need to know what I am saying, no not for me, but for the survival of everything we hold dear. Unfortunate most of all though is that by him winning that means I am locked into writing this column for another whole month.
Nation I have always been a loyal supporter of our current president DMJ. In fact I was the first person to vote for him. Who can forget when Americans unanimously said I was cuter than his daughter, forcing him to adopt me as his son, and casting his old offspring into the wilderness? Recently though DMJ has made me an even more loyal supporter of his. By declaring war on Canada, DMJ has joined a long standing American tradition of invading small resource rich nations. I have come to learn though that what I had hoped was a war of aggression is actually a training war meant to benefit both nations. Nation this fact has led me to question everything I thought I knew about DMJ. If we elected a former Secretary of Defense, why are we not defending ourselves by aggressively invading Canada? I’m sorry DMJ, but you leave me with no choice. You are officially a pansy in my book.
Next up I’d like to talk about the return of the classic eUS radio show “eNPR.” You might remember this program from the recent presidential debate where DMJ showed off his skills in what some might call “singing”, and irule777 tried to top that by showing off his flaming chainsaw juggling talents. Despite irule777’s mastery of gay chainsaws, this talent did not win him the all important “insane people” demographic. While some would say the show was excellently done, and led to honest discussion between two people vying for our country’s highest office, while also opening up new opportunities for citizens to get involved and ask their elected officials important questions, I see the show for what it truly is; government sponsored journalism. I say let the market decide what radio shows people watch, not endless government funding. Now you might say “but SColbert aren’t you writing this very column in a government newspaper?” To which I respond “this is my column I’ll be asking the questions here.” Now if you want to protest this obvious attempt by our government to pick winners and losers, I would urge you to tune in tomorrow, listen to the show, and then call in to complain.
That is all for this week Nation, but tune in tomorrow to eNPR, and you might just hear more of me.
War Map and Analysis
Let's take a look at India, first. It's been a safe-haven for the forlorn for a while now, but we are finally seeing some activity there. France, Canada, Iran, Uraguay, and Peru have all sought refuge here. India is attempting to conduct campaigns to remove some, if not all of the refugees. But, honestly, India cannot hold all of her regions, ever. There will never again be a whole India. She cannot beat Iran in an MPP battle, so India's desire to reclaim some regions will not be realized anytime soon.
Now, we move to the Balkans. I think we've been here before, with Romania and Bulgaria engaged in a WAR. Bulgaria attacked and Romania secured. Varna looks like it could be close, but Romania does have an early lead. We'll see how the campaign goes for Bulgaria.
In an absolute blurring of the alliance lines, Finland is at WAR with Estonia and the eUSA is backing the Finns. Long-time allies, the Finns relationship with Russia has edged the eUSA and Finland back into a romance. Finland is winning at the moment in Pohja-Eesti. Let's see how it goes and how these types of campaigns will imply future 'restructuring' of alliances and loyalties.
Mexico and Colombia enter the ninth battle in the most recent war. These two countries are well matched. I hope they are enjoying the eternal WAR. It has gone back and forth, with Mexico only having a slight edge of winning the past two battles. The current one is fairly even, right now. Good luck to Mexico. I remember a time when our southern neighbor was not on our side. Get that cocaine, brethren.
Switzerland is doing work on Austria? Weird. With zero MPPs, I don't think I'd put money on Austria, although anything is possible. Speaking of the impossible, Pakistan attacked China. I wonder what will happen... In other news, Turkey is going to roll over Republic of Moldova. First battle is 44-0 at the moment. GG
A shout out to Indonesia for running three campaigns at the same time, against the Philippines, South Africa, and Singapore. Indonesia has been kinda sleepy. I honestly wonder what they've been up to. Probably enjoying Ramadan, iirc. The Philippines are owning, so I can only assume Indonesia wants to lose this battle. Sumatra vs Singapore appears to be a win. Wait a minute. South Africa is winning in Western Australia. What the F***? First of all, how did they get there. Why are they there? And how the F*** are they winning? Oh, I see, South Africa has now changed sides. And those four MPPS; Argentina, Greece, Romania, and Serbia are pretty boss. But still, I'd like to see Indonesia wipe them out of Australia. Let's see how much support they get.
Oh, did I mention Cyprus was wiping ISrael...again. This seems to be a trend. Is it even hard, bro?
And that is all for now. Keep shaking that ASS. I'll keep writing S***.
