Wave Diminished [WV DEFEATED] – June 11th 2020

Hey SWAT!

Well today’s event was an interesting experience! If you’d have told me an hour ago that we’d have a battle (and lets face it, win) against a major army I would have laughed. But that’s what happened, and with an 18 max I must say I’m really happy with how our event turned out!

I must give a little bit of context to this event so it’s clear there are no hard feelings against WV. A couple of days ago we were forced to demote a high command member from second in command to fourth in command after repeated requests for him to stop forming/declining allyships with other armies were declined. This resulted in him DMing me, resorting to name calling and claiming other (male) army leaders with the same experience as myself were better because they weren’t ‘bossy’ (code for ‘women with opinions’). This, amongst other things, resulted in a ban for the member.

This member decided to join WV today in their raid against SWAT. The event was fun, but some tactics had a harsh tinge to them, which even WV leaders said wasn’t the aim. Overall, however, the event made for an enjoyable practice battle and with Mythic being amazing and helping to lead tactics, I must say I was able to pause and appreciate what was going on. Maybe this will be something that we do in the very near future….

To conclude, tonight was wild but wonderful, and allowed for some tentative plans for an actual practice battle to be made for after legends cup. The SWAT family, as always, was amazing and the tactics were on point, and my VC superstars Sammi and Sophie never let me down.

Thank you WV for the laugh, and we can’t wait to beat see you again soon!

SWAT Training Event – June 3rd

Hi SWAT

Wow. What else can I say other than just that: wow.

Today we held our second event of the week, another training session with a partial U-Lead element and it was amazing. Every event we do I don’t think I could be any prouder of us as a new(ish) army, and yet you all come and blow me away again and again.

SWAT Training Event – June 1st

Hi SWAT!

Today saw our first training event as an official army, and boy was it fun! We thought we’d mix things up and do some none traditional rooms (using docks, blank room and box dimension) and the leaders and owners really stepped up to the plate, coming up with some creative tactics to complement the fun rooms. These tactics really reminded me why we brought back SWAT, because as a smaller community we can bring up and create new jokes with ease. With a max of 22 (as shown in the picture below XD) we had an amazing time while training for future battles which will soon be announced…

SWAT’s Return Event – May 30th

After merging with DCP earlier this month, SWAT’s creator Ganger90, alongside SWAT Legend Sweater, recieved multiple messages upset with the decision. Together xFastx, Sophy Bee and Iz, decided it wasn’t time to let the SWAT family fall apart, and decided to bring SWAT back with a renewed passion for one of the greatest armies CPAL has ever seen. This new SWAT is focused on community, solidarity and family, and today’s return event shows just how big our family is.

Unscheduled Training Event – Results

Hello SWAT!

Today we decided to hold an unscheduled event with a few members of our allied armies: The Elites and The Royal Family. The event, initially ran by commanders Badboy and Sweater, quickly became a U-lead event, with leaders, owners and members alike thinking up fun and creative tactics which put a smile on everyone’s faces and, from the sounds of the voice chat, caused quite a few laughs as well! We managed to max around 35, which was an amazing feeling especially when the tactics hit just right, which happened on many occasions. It was a really amazing event and I want to thank everyone who took the time to attend. Despite all going on in the world of CPO, I want to say that the event today reminded me what it was to be a part of SWAT, and proud of everyone for the time and dedication they put in to making this army one of the best.

Thank you all for making SWAT what it is: an amazing army and an amazing group of friends!
