TITO members were on the ball with spotting raiders throughout May, which led to 15 defenses, 4 liberations, 3 detags, and 3 chase runs. Tactical Officer Sulenia in particular demonstrated his spotting skills, and was awarded six Coastwatching Eagles, awarded for being the first to spot a raid, over the course of the month. In between all of the defenses, TITO also joined numerous other militaries to participate in a fash bash of Genua, concluded their support of The South Pacific, and assisted in the delegacy transition of The Rejected Realms. The month of May also saw plenty of coordination with Libcord and Allied Militaries, which helped make it a particularly successful month for defending!
TITO has a blast taking part in the Defender Olympics throughout May. Huge thanks to the organizers for such a wonderful event! Below is a summary of TITO participation by Tactical Officer Flying Eagles.
Earlier this month, TITO troops came together with 9 other defender militaries to participate in the Defender Olympics. During the events, TITO troops participated in numerous events, including spotting, liberations, trigger-calling, chasing, and a pile off and theme contest. TITO finished with a hugely impressive 9 medals. Congrats to Moonflower and Sulenia for winning gold, Sulenia (twice) and Control for winning silver, and Control and Thedairos for winning bronze. Congrats also to all of TITO for winning a silver medal in the pile off and a bronze medal in the theme competition.
TITO Members were competitive this month, with fights, political intrigue, and some really good jokes.
TITO members put in many late nights defending through update, and often need some caffeine to get them energized and awake! This May, TITO was asked how they liked their coffee to get a bit of insight of the magic liquid that really makes TITO tick. Two members take their coffee black, four take it with cream and/or sugar, and in a shocking plot twist, most TITO members prefer tea, with nine members extolling the virtues of leaf juice.
~Sorya takes his coffee black, and when asked why, he kept it short and (metaphorically) sweet, saying “I like it bitter, like me (sometimes)”.
~Porflox puts some cream and sugar in his coffee, reasoning “I don't particularly enjoy bitter tastes too much, same reason why I don't eat dark chocolate”
~Thedairos is a tea aficionado, reporting “I prefer tea because I really don't like coffee (which tastes like bitter water to be honest) and it's a nice and warm beverage, especially for winter and sick days. My favourite kind is berry flavoured tea”
~Technical Liaison Kortexia also gets his caffeine fix from tea, stating “I prefer tea because I can get the nice caffeine buzz in the morning without any of the jitters that can come with coffee. Plus it tastes wayyyy better!!! My preferred tea is a nice Matcha Latte, but in 2nd place I would put a properly made Chai”.
~Astrobolt, superhero that he is, doesn’t even require caffeine to defend, and says, “I actually don't drink either tea or coffee, and usually have water, or in the morning, soy milk”.
