POW’s 5th Birthday

Day 2,413, 13:49 Published in Poland Croatia by Dryblas

Our another birthday party came to an end. Now it’s the time to summarize what happened during past two days.
This article is going to be long, so if you can’t bother yourself to read, here’s TL😉R version for you:
Saturday morning we’ve started RW in Serbia, we’ve won it 85-14, yet still had shitload of damage, so we fought all night and whole Sunday, to burn up our stocks.
POW is recruiting - requirments: none, just PM Dryblas and tell why you would like to join.

Long version:
It started as usual – we’ve set the date for our party. POW was created June 18th 2009, so we wanted to pick up a Saturday close to that day. Two dates were chosen to be put through voting: 14th and 21st of June, and the second one won. 20th June, 12 hours till our birthday, when guests were invited, beer was cooling in refrigerators, Plato informed us about upcoming tournament. We’ve had to decide quickly and after short brainstorm among Board we’ve decided to postpone it for 28th June.
Few days before tournament Feyo-Geyo (Feynovac) proposed that Tuljani could join us for the upcoming week. I’m very grateful for that, once again they proved that we can count on them in any situation. We talked with few other MUs, but we achieved nothing.

Saturday was closing in, and we had to pick target for our RW. Last year we’ve learnt that the only country that will defend and won’t let us win easily is Serbia. After convos with Croatian CP – HisAirness we’ve picked primary target and alternative. Saturday morning our main target went missing, so we went for rescue plan – RW in Bosnian region: WSR.

We were prepared well. We had hundreds, thousands of EBs, bombs, many managed to get 100% booster only for that day.

We started RW right after DC, turned boosters on and fighting started. Traditionally we had enormous influence in D4, decent in D3, but a little in lower divisions. First mini was meant to be a prelude to our rivalry, and so it was, our opponents were still sleeping, so we’ve won 9-2 losing only D2. Next minibattle finished the same: 9-2.In third minibattle we couldn’t win in D3, despite huge amounts of influence, and it finished 6-5. 4th one went easily – 11:0. Fifth one 9-2. Since that moment we haven’t got any particular problems and next three rounds finished with 11:0 score. 9th minibattle closed the battle with 85-14 score.

During the whole battle our biggest problem was in D3, since with less than 10 active people in that division, they have to win each battle fighting large amounts of opponents. During the battle Serbia started to set CO, but after all it didn’t help much.
Battle ended around 1 am CET (1600 eR), and we still had loads of influence. Some people just came up and didn’t manage to burn all. We had large surplus in D4, a little in D3 and nothing left in D2 and D1. So we came up with idea of flying here and there and helping our allies.

But the best of the best was that so many guests came to fight with us, some of them coming from e-death, some stopping 2-clicking for a day. Atmosphere on our channel was great, and being the one who organized it, we cannot be more happy. We showed that no matter what side we are, and for whom we fight, we can still have some joy in this plain and sad game.
Time for the most embarrassing moment: list of people we would like to thank. While writing this, I feel like I’m quitting this game.

I’d also like to thank myself, for managing another year and for being able to feel all the emotions connected with Bday.

20 people from our MU managed to get into top100 fighters. Tommorow few will get there too, so we'll edit article. (Edit: 10 people managed to do it on sunday)

We've got 72 BH and 5 CH medals, and screens from top5, full of POW's members could fill whole article. That's why they'll be in pack at the end of article.

It’s hard to count that large amount of influence, tho according to our data, we’ve made: OVER 58 BILLIONS!!!
It allowed us to advance in every tournament and WL ranking.
At some point our 1st Regiment was third in the world!











And we haven’t recruited officially for past three years, so it’s finally time to change it.
POW is recruiting!
If you want to be a member of our MU send a PM to Dryblas.
We don’t have particular expectations or strength/level/nationality locks. It’s the person who matters.

See you next year

Hail POW!
