Royt, let's just get this over with now yeah. The usual dribble. What defines the year 2020 for the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company. Citizens can also nominate. Could be anything.
Reason: Taken on the 30th of November, 2020 a returning Company Veteran and hero came and revealed certain monetary problems where in he only needed a few more bucks but has exhausted all other methods of reaching it in time; the Company obliged him. Unlike other clans or groups, the Company's core group of professionals, artisans and experts have allowed the clan to achieve great capability to provide among their members with tangible assets and resources, cementing the claim of a Grand and Global Alliance.
Reason: A Regimental now turned Company Member bought merchandise and was rewarded pins and metals alongside a personal letter of congratulations - showcasing the tangible reward and show of gratitude to their men of valor. The investments of yesterday, becomes the fruits of tomorrow. From the Clan Bank of a few men, to the individual rank and file.
Reason: Traditional UTC types(TradUTC) come together and discuss future plans for the increasing wealth, expertise, network, assets and all the strong sciences, each offering their own services, ideas and expertise.
Reason: Some crazy ass shit. Typical party themes and what not that is common in every Image of the Year
Reason: A Citizen puts forth the question of other events ran by other clans, signifying the uniqueness and capability of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company in a gamemode that's dying and filled with increasingly similar player types and groups who are all equally interchangeable in the eyes of the Company.
Reason: The term "nuTC" has been thrown around recently, usually in a disparaging way. This was the first time it was used. Its identification by other more traditional UTC types in the year has only represented a painful cultural divide between Company Members who follow traditional Company Values and virtues, compared to an increasing amount of the clan seeking closer and friendlier ties with the Shotbow Community, in spite of flaws both moral and technical. There are also those who nuTC who resent Shotbow but also disavow traditional UTC concepts of discipline, freedom of speech, rights and other institutional protections and or liberties for concern that they are abusive and cause a lot of emotional or mental harm as TradUTC types tend to be more abrasive and "in your face" when it comes to dialogue and honesty. This culminated in the 93rd Regiment of Virtues, the group with the most amount of nuTC members into having a referendum to leave. While the senior members of the regiment opposed the measure, they were outnumbered by much of the new blood dramatically.
Reason: Actually made by Irishkaiser in 2013 but recovered by boonut in 2020. This image was used to show that perception of radical population change over the years. The amount of people depicted in the Premposting image showed a larger amount of white regular players as compared to premium players. In the year 2020, Shotbow's premium population exploded while its white regular players dropped. The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company has always been pro-regular and seeing this image was disheartening for much of many senior Company Members who remembered the past.
Reason: More members of the Company are taking collective risk for actual international trade and mutual benefit. From the Clan Bank of 2017 forming the basis and foundation of this, the fruit of the investments and the spirit of the people grew up.
Reason: Actual, tangible, unique clan merchandise produced by the Clan's members all around the world. The Trading Company began selling real goods and shoved it on everyone's faces. Yeah.
Reason: Some guy actually thought this was just the best thing ever, but aw what the hell.
Reason: As the clan began to include more fringe types and other groups, many are increasingly paranoid of mainstream social media with fears of government tracking against people who hold beliefs and or express values considered politically incorrect. Many of them are actually nice and hold politically correct values, beliefs and expressions - however, they just don't trust mainstream media like reddit, Discord or other such things.
THE MOST FRIENDLY MINEZ I EVER PLAYEDhttps://i.imgur.com/UJ20wQH.png)
Reason: Yeah homie... We out here pimpin.
Reason: Though it never made it as a Battle Honour, because the Commanding Officer failed to complete the mission, this battle showcased Company Forces face off at what could be considered as the strongest PvP clan at the time, thus showing that the Company is never to be underestimated, no matter what it looks like from the outside. Man, nigga... I swear if you only ordered us to SCOUT OUT THE LAST POSITIONS INSTEAD OF BEATING RETREATING, WE WOULD BE HAVING SO MUCH MEDALS RIGHT NOW. Fuck me, man.
Reason: These things come out into the world and our mark and symbol is on them. Heil Hitler.
