The Military Career
Batterytime has been a soldier almost since the day he was born. Always ready to fight for his country, he has been actively battling enemy combatants for his entire life.
Before the Military
Before the military, batterytime was a 7-clicker, working, training, and fighting in the Baja Training Wars 5 times daily. He was born on day 507 of the New World, April 10th. After clicking through the Baja TWs, he continued his "military" journey by fighting bravely with his bare fists in the Rhode Island Training Wars that followed. However, batterytime then proceeded to find a link to an application for the United States Training Division.
The Training Division
After being accepted into the Training Division and joining the ranks of the United States Armed Forces on May 31st, 2009, batterytime proceeded to go through the Training Division without a hitch, graduating in late June of 2009, into the United States Home Guard.
Home Guard: Always Ready Always There
The Great War
Batterytime had little time to even learn how to operate his weapons in the Home Guard before finding himself deployed to the far reaches of the United States, outfitted with Q1 weapons against the invading Russians, Indonesians, Portuguese, and French. Nevertheless, he fought valiantly in every battle, following the orders of the high command, sometimes even berzerking down to 40 wellness to help protect the nation. In the end, he was pushed back to Florida, but did not back down: batterytime then proceeded to join in the massive pushback effort made by the Americans and their allies, eventually fighting in one of the largest battles in history, the liberation of California from Indonesia. Immediately after the epic battle in California on September 4th, batterytime applied for entrance to the United States Army. He was accepted September 6th, and placed into the 2/2 on September 9th.
Life in the Army: HOORAH!
Batterytime entered a whole new world of the military when he joined the Army, and traveled to many countries, guns blazing the entire way. He joined the 2nd division, 2nd platoon when placed into the Army, and stayed there as an energetic private for 2 months. Eventually, he was offered an officer position as the XO of the 4th division, 1st platoon. Batterytime accepted the position on November 3rd.
A few months later, however, on January 4th, 2010, Batterytime was offered a promotion to Major as the division XO of the 10th Mountain Division. He accepted the promotion and now leads the 10th along with his DCO, Ethan Strickland.
Apart from his strong background in military, batterytime has also been a company owner many times, being majority shareholder and manager of the B&E Weapons, and private owner of two Q3 RM companies: BT Wood and BT Iron.
The First Company: BT Weapons
Batterytime incorporated his first company a few months after he first joined the game. Scraping together 20 GOLD, he bought an 18 GOLD Q1 weapons company off of the market, and proceeded to run it through World War III, enjoying the huge profits that the war was bringing. Eventually, however, he sensed that Illinois was about to be conquered by the Russians, and sold the company for 18.5 GOLD. Following this sale, batterytime did not delve into any further business endeavors, apart from occasionally playing the monetary market.
Return to Business: Revival of BT Weapons
Near the end of World War III, batterytime decided to try his luck, and bought and opened another Q1 weapons company. However, only a few weeks after starting it up, the US weapons market crashed due to the end of the great war, and batterytime could not make any profits amidst the huge surplus of Q1 weapons, left over from the oversupply of companies created to fuel the war. He thus decided to stockpile over 500 weapons in his company, before closing it down. Batterytime waited for another large war to sell off his stockpile, hoping for the prices that he had once seen during WWIII; alas, this was not to happen and the company sat dormant for months.
B&E Trust: The First Cooperation
Batterytime had owned all of his companies by himself prior to meeting with Ethan Strickland, the 4th division XO in the US Army, on IRC to accept the position of 4/1 XO in the Army. During the chat, both parties expressed a dream to own a Q5 company: however, neither batterytime nor Ethan Strickland had the money to start one by themselves. They thus decided to form B&E Trust, a cooperative organization that would sell shares to raise funds for a Q5 company. The result of this was B&E Weapons, which was created on November 9th after gathering over 200 GOLD in investments from various investors. The company has proved to be a huge success, with large profits being returned every week as dividends to the investors.
Flying Solo: The RM Experiments
A few weeks after forming B&E Trust, Batterytime gathered together enough funds to buy a Q3 wood company from the company market, and decided to try for the first time the operation of an RM company. The company proved to be a success, and he followed it up by purchasing a Q3 iron company in Asturias, Spain.
