Gambit was born on a sunny day, rare to the UK on the 10th of April 2010. At this point Phoenix was at large and the Arabic countries had not been added to the game. After a few days however, Gambit decided to quit as he didn't like V1 at all because he lost most of his health being a noob and trying to do something in a war. He quit at age (Level) .
Gambit then returned on the 29th of March 2011, because he's quit once, this made him an oldfag, as all oldfags have quit at least once. He returned with the sight of a just system for smaller players and able to make a difference in wars. However, after a few days he realised that admins needed their heads kicked in. Gambit was unhappy about one thing when he returned. It was that people in the UK were still plotting to attack Ireland, yet nobody had actually done it yet. (Gambit later found out that we had wiped Ireland off the map while he was gone)
Gambit spent some time in the UK and made his mark as more of a writer than anything, and generally was well-known for just chatting on IRC rather than doing anything special, but after a time he began to get tired of all the political squabbles between UKRP and TUP and since he was getting busy in RL he decided to take a quiet break in Estonia so he could two-click for the most part. He later returned on the 1st of October during the war with Canada, Ireland and the Netherlands.
On the 2nd of August Gambit applied for citizenship to Estonia, two days later it was accepted. Being ambassador there the month before and generally being awesome, Estonia's citizenship committee agreed to let him in instantly. Gambit spent all his time in Estonia in the military unit of Estonian LEEGION, the Estonian national army for people with 1K - 2.9K strength. However, after UK signed an MPP with Estonia, Gambit began fighting for the UK in important battles such as the battle for London against Canada and other battles during the UK - Canada + Ireland war.
Gambit didn't get into congress in Estonia, however, during his time in Estonia he was two-clicking and found google translate to be a little difficult at times and therefore couldn't get into the politics side of Estonia.
Gambit left Estonia on the 1st of October 2011.
On the 10th of February 2012, Gambit got his citizenship accepted to Slovenia. UK was in bad shape with France, Canada and Ireland occupying them and without resources, Gambit was gaining no money. Being a traveler and liking change anyway, his next country to go to was always going to be Slovenia anyway and decided it was the right time to make the change. He was saving up gold to upgrade his weapons company to Q5 and in the UK he was losing money instead of gaining it. Once enough gold is gained to upgrade he'll be able to self-supply and leave The ESO legion and join a Slovenian Military Unit. Although Gambit joined Povezani Demokrati Slovenije, he remains an official member of Every Single One.

Gambit has made many friends on this game, most of which came from being either in the military or in the party of ESO. The first people he liked on eRepublik were Nathan Slater and Simon Hind as Simon Hind accepted him into the military and Nathan Slater was his first Colonel.
During his time in ESO however, he mostly talked to Vadigor, Elle Roslin and The Grump. The Grump and Gambit worked together in ESO to do many things, such as recruitment and sorting out congress, later being known as Team Grumbit, due to their success when working together, and generally being super cool people. Gambit has came to like many people within ESO, one worth mentioning are Emergy Maxfell, Daeres, Olly Fox and Harrington.
Gambit has also made friends further out than just the UK. Deathrider made a brief visit to the UK before returning to Portugal, yet continued to keep talking in the ESO channel even after. ReconWarHawk is from Egypt and got talking through Gambit's newspaper and after a month ReconWarHawk actually offered Gambit the place as MoD in Egypt if he were to win the election for President. Gambit declined to due not having a market license in Egypt and not feeling as if he were up to the job.
Gambit also gained many friends in the military, especially when he was General as he communicated with the Branch well and made close friends such as Xmac, Mr.Brayford and Tom Court. After spending time talking to other military commanders, he also became friends with Germanstar and Smack.
During his time in Estonia he spoke to Kcoore, his military commander and Mister Margooni, other than that, Gambit didn't tend to talk to anyone in Estonia due to the language barriers.
I know I've missed someone out on that list of friends but c'mon, I can't remember everyone =P

Gambit joined the military with some complications. Gambit was still new to the game and didn't know he needed to be IRC active to be in the British Army, and so he was put into the Royal Naval Reserve since he was IRC inactive. As soon as he got the private message telling him he was put in the Naval Reserve he instantly told his commander the issue and Gambit got help in registering his IRC nickname but since he had already said he was IRC inactive the army found it difficult to reset Gambit's army application. Once everything started to run smoothly Gambit was transferred to the British Army, where he wanted to be in the first place.
Although Gambit has multiple companies he still asks for supplies since he tries to keep his business life and military life separate and doesn't want military work interfering with his income.
Gambit was placed into the Grenadier Guards, in the British Army and his first colonel was Nathan Slater, although because of him being busy he resigned as colonel within two days of Gambit joining, adding more confusion to the military life from Gambit's point of view.
Gambit's new and second colonel was and is still Colonel Camcam. As Gambit was dedicated to progressing through the military (As he saw no future in politics as he found it a little too complicated and full of trolls) and was promoted to Corporal within a week. No longer than three days later, Gambit proved himself as a worthy soldier and skipped the rank of Captain and was promoted from Corporal straight to Lieutenant as Camcam's right-hand man.
On the 5th of May 2011, Colonel Camcam stepped down due to the upcoming exams so Gambit then assumed control of the Unit becoming Colonel. One of Gambit's main goals in eRepublik is to become Colonel of his unit and he achieved that with hard work, high activity and good fortune.
After the new change in the command structure for the British Army, Gambit became Major General, or Commanding Officer of the whole British army, after Mr.Daniel stepped down from his Major General seat. Unfortunately, due to the changes the most active unit in the United Kingdom Armed Forces, Grenadier Guards, run by Gambit had to be merged with the least active, King's Regiment, run by JamesB009.
Gambit then resigned as General from the army giving his seat up to JamesB009 and temporarily giving Xmac the rank of Brigadier as JamesB009 will have the final say as to who will have the rank of Brigadier. The reasons for leaving are stated in and article he wrote.
After spending some time fighting where he wanted, Gambit then returned to the military scene and joined 40 Commando as many ex-army colleagues had joined and Gambit felt it was time to be part of a group again. After just a few weeks of joining things went downhill as the admins made it so only 5 people could join a company, thus messing up supplies which ultimately led to the military unit being forced to disband.
Gambit then joined UK's Independent Forces as they were a smaller unit, Gambit thought he could try and change the military unit and turn them into a bigger, more active unit as Gambit was one of the few experienced players in the unit at the time.

As soon as Gambit was able to at level The Unity Party because the only person running for CP at the time that he liked was GLaDOS but his stay at TUP was short lived as he felt the V1 game was unfair to newborn players and so he quit the game., he joined
After a 10 month leave from the game Gambit was automatically taken out of The Unity Party as he had died. In consequence he went in search of another party and with more knowledge of the political area he could make a better calculated decision. Again, it was the time of the general election and the only person that he wanted to win was Artela, who, at the time was party president of Every Single One, so he checked the party out and agreed with the policy of ESO and joined ESO on the 29th March 2011
It was not until a 3 weeks later that he realised there was a private section in the UK forum for parties, and it was the perfect time as Gambit was already looking for a way to get more active within the party. He joined the forums and got told to go on their IRC channel and from then on he became more and more active within the party and became Head of Recruitment.
Head of Recruitment
Gambit became Head of Recruitment because he had searched the forums and got hold of very useful websites and since the party was all about helping new players into the game he decided to use what he had and started to message the newborn players in the game and help them get more involved. The Grump and Gambit went on a mass recruiting campaign during the time of the April 2011 congress elections and gained a total of 36 members within 10 days.
After Artela left, there was a space to be Vice President of ESO. Vadigor and Gambit put their names forward although doing this wouldn't help as the PP (The Grump) would be the one to choose, no matter who puts their name forward. The Grump took 4 days to choose as it was a touch decision and in the end Elle Roslin became the VPP of ESO and made Gambit the Head of Recruitment. Gambit later stepped down from being Head of Recruitment as he was to busy with the Military and his Newspaper.
Because of a Croatian PTO threat the party president election were done over the eUK forums so the winner will be running unopposed concentrating votes on one person. Three people ran, JUracan, Stockyrocky310597 and Gambit. Gambit just won by little under 10 votes making him to be the one to candidate unopposed. However things didn't go all to plan as new party members decided to candidate themselves as well as a Turkish PTOer, however, none of them posed much of a problem and Gambit won by over 93% of the votes.
Gambit made StockyRocky his Vice Party President as he had shown amazing activity within the forums and obviously had enthusiasm about having a job within the Party. StockyRocky allegedly had multiple accounts which was of course false, but was banned for it anyway. Stockyrocky made an appeal and was forced to step down as Vice Party President.
Elle Roslin was Vice Party President for two days until StockyRocky became unbanned and reclaimed VPP.
Gambit then resigned as Party President for almost the same reasons as he left the Army - him not having fun. The thing that finally made him leave was The Grump telling him how to run the party during the presidential elections and generally trying to control the party even though it isn't anybody's to control. The Grump was especially critical as to how he was voting presidential candidates and kept telling Gambit the 'right' way to run the votes, this is the point in which Gambit had enough of getting on at and then resigned his Party Presidential seat and straight after he then resigned as General of the British Army.
Gambit liked to make new avatars regularly, it was unknown as to why he does this and Elle Roslin actually joked about making a petition to make Gambit have one avatar per month. This are some of them.
