Although updates tended to be slow, TITO found ways to stay busy throughout June. With 8 defenses, 1 liberation, and 8 chase runs, troops were jumping all about NS. Of course, a special shoutout to Thedairos and Free las pinas for going above and beyond to find detags, keeping TITO’s skills sharp with a total of 17 detags this month! Whether TITO troops were working on their own, or jumping alongside friends from other militaries, it was an enjoyable and productive month all around!
Unfortunately tragedies abounded in TITO chat this month, though they certainly were amusing.
For this month’s report, we sat down with a TITO Tactical Officer who has made a big splash in update since being promoted. Sulenia has been an incredibly active leader, giving orders almost every update and making chasing a regular TITO activity.
Wisch: Why did you initially join TITO and what made you stay for long enough to become a TO?
Sulenia: The recruitment TG I got really caught my attention when it came to TITO, I found the concept of having a military really interesting. As for what made me stay, it was mainly the community and my own boredom, but mostly the community, I've met a lot of awesome people and that made me stay.
Wisch How are your updates different now as a TO, compared to when you were a non-Command member?
Sulenia: For me at least, it wasn't a huge change, now I just have the responsibility of leading our members, and coordinating with other orgs whenever necessary. I would consider those the main things that changed.
Wisch One thing in particular you’ve taken the lead on is getting TITO members into chasing. How have your efforts progressed on that front?
Sulenia Most often when there's taggers out, i ask if there's any interest in our members in chasing them, I've also recently started to teach our newer members the basics of chasing, and made a small guide on how to chase as well.
Wisch: And how do you think engaging in chasing has affected TITO as a whole?
Sulenia: It has been hugely beneficial to us, with some of our members getting shorter and shorter jump times, developing their skills.
Wisch: What made you personally interested in chasing and how did it prompt you to encourage TITO to begin chasing?
Sulenia: Currently, it's my personal desire to keep raiderdom on the floor that keeps me going. But before that it was mainly my interest in self-improvement, as my participation in the LNF (Late Nite Festival) showed me that chasing could be really good for developing my skills. Besides chasing is kinda fun. Well, I want to make clear that I didn't introduce TITO to chasing, but what convinced me to lead it was how entertaining it is, and as I mentioned before, it’s good for developing skills.
Wisch: What plans do you have for TITO’s future, and for your role personally?
Sulenia: One of the first things I want to do when I have the motivation and time, is making it easier for our mobile updaters (and future mobile TO's) to well, update, however I won't go into detail as to how I'll do that :P As for myself, for now I'll keep spotting and leading, it makes me happy
Wisch: Any final comments you’d like to make?
Sulenia: If any of our Islanders are reading this, join TITO, you won't regret it
