TITO was super active this month, sending out troops to defend against noob raiders and support friendly regions. Throughout March, TITO pulled off 21 defenses, 5 liberations, and 13 detags. Additionally, updating TITO members spent a few updates switching between several friendly regions in support of their delegates, including XKI itself. Making the month even more remarkable, TITO has adopted an official flag for the first time ever. With dozens of submissions, TITO Command has a tough time picking the final design, but ultimately settled on this gorgeous flag by The Union Empire! Congratulations and thanks to everyone for their submissions!
TITO members had plenty of jokes to go around, with FC Hame in particular dropping some great one-liners!
With update and update-based activities taking up several hours of TITO member’s day, it’s perhaps no surprise that our troops get a bit peckish. For some TITO members, update even falls right on their usual mealtime depending on their timezone. Luckily, our troops come well-prepared to update, arming themselves with various kinds of snacks to much on while chasing raiders through NationStates. This month, we asked TITO members what their go-to snack was. Tied at the top were cookies/sweets and chips, each with eight votes of support. Considering their ultimate snack status, it seems TITO members have good taste! Surprisingly, the next most popular option, with 7 votes, was to avoid snacking entirely. Beyond that, votes split between a variety of different options, including fruit and sandwiches. We spoke with several members to gain a better perspective of TITO’s snacking preferences.
~ Mrhermit responded that they like to snack of chips throughout update for the simple reason that they “have them in the house fairly often”. Can’t really argue with that! MrHermit’s favorite chip flavor is the pain chip itself: salt and vinegar!
~ Saint Nassau has a sweet tooth and snacks on candy during update. Particularly, they recommend “Pé de Moleque”, a peanut-based candy. Sounds delicious, and like a great way to get an energy boost for late-night updates!
~ Valentian Elysium prefers to partake in some fresh fruit during update. His particular favorites are apples, though he also enjoys nectarines, plums, and grapes as well. All very scrumptious choices, and quite healthy!
~ Controlitia usually eats a peanut butter sandwich during update. The reason for it is simpler than you may think, as he usually has “a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast and minor's at breakfast time”. Fair enough!
~ Catalyse normally doesn’t snack during update, both because update is at the non-snackable time of 5pm, but also because “sticky hands from snacking make you slower at clicking the move button.” How very considerate for defending!
