Special Weapons and Tactics have reclaimed their Major status. After August, this is their second run as a major army. Let us take a look at what the army has been up to since August.
On November 6, the Special Weapons and Tactics moved from being an S/M army to a Major one, once again. Having completed the necessary criteria and requirements of receiving size points of 20+ for three consecutive weeks as announced in the recent Top Ten Armies post – the army earned the status of a Major army, thus joining the Major league as the 7th Major army in the community.
A week after receiving the major status in August, the army received a war declaration from four armies, due to concerning allegations regarding the army’s conduct and the morality of the leadership. The agents did participate in the war showing up for battles against the Templars and the Water Vikings. However, they decided not to attend the invasions scheduled against them by the Help Force and the Ice Warriors. With the coming of September, the army witnessed a new era as new leaders were inducted into the leadership. Following the election, SWAT was force-treatied by the four armies, after an attempt to exit the war by surrendering to, the Strawhats.
There was a gradual drop in size and a dip in activity after the war ended. However, despite the war causing them enough damage, the agents were able to bounce back with their hard work, dedication, and resilience. The army not only strengthened its Higher Command and Staff but also hosted exciting events and game nights to keep their community engaged and intact, in addition to recruiting competitions. They also took part in this year’s Legends Cup, where the army maxed 36 in their first round against the Rebel Penguin Federation.
The month of October had the army host Division Battles amongst themselves, alongside continuing with recruiting tourneys. This only encouraged more activity and participation from the troops, ensuring consistency and growth, which has led to them bagging the second position in the Top Ten Armies once again, and becoming a Major Army.
