Birth and first steps
Gulitiwi is a Brazilian citizen born in the southeast region on June, 22nd 2008, day 215 of the New World. Gulitiwi got to know the game on a big Brazilian forum known as VT, invited by Nelio. He first saw the advertisement of the game in May, but didn't want to join the game alone and waited until his friend Champer accepted his invitation to join this unknown world. In the Beta version of Erepublik you were required to publish your résumé in wait ‘til you have received a job proposal by the employer. He wrote what his fellow VT Forum members recommended, “I work every day with 100% wellness”, and waited for his very first job.
Close death and new beginning
V1 and Bugs
On October 14th, 2008, Erepublik launched its new version V1, replacing the previous beta version of the game. After the launch of V1, Gulitiwi slowly started his hibernation.
At the beggining, the game suffered with endless instability, items disappearing and some boring features, some now extinct, for example Trivia. After the update, Gulitiwi's journey began to cease. At the first few days, he bought food to keep his account alive, but a week later he completely stopped logging in the game. His old friends also left the game in the same period.
After his long period of inactivity, on May, 7th of 2009, Gulitiwi received an email from Erepublik warning about his close death. At first, he didn't pay much attention as he had no interest to return to the game.
On May, 15th of 2009, Gulitiwi logged in the game for the first time in five months, however, took a couple weeks to fully return to the game and get together with the whole eBrazilian social places: MSN ChatGroup and Erepublik Brazil forums.
Gulitiwi is always active on mIRC and forums of eRepublik. Usually known as Guli or Duck.
He has been the Social Minister for two months in 2010 and with some efforts managed to answer over 50 messages every day helping players during this time.
He created his newspaper for free in the second week of the game, formerly named eWorld News!, but had to change the name a few months later because the game stopped accepting special characters for newspaper names. Although he became a successful journalist, it took several weeks before he created his first article, on the day 277 (August, 23rd of 2008) of the New World. Gulitiwi is known by making articles with prizes or give aways. Full of fun, he always tries to entertain his readers.
During the launch of Erepublik Rising he created many tutorials to help Brazilian citizens get used to the new features.
All of his articles have reached Top 5 of Brazil, with two of them reaching Top 5 of the world.
His last known company was.
Guli Armas Q1
Guli Armas Q1 was the first company created by Gulitiwi.
The company was created by Flausino around May or June of 2009, whom named it Antares Armas Q1. Due his short free time to manage the company, Flausino decided to sell it and put it up for sale on the market, with no luck – no one was interested. Then he began his quest to sell it on the already extinct eBrazilian MSN Chat Group for 18 Golds. Luckily, Gulitiwi was just planning to start his entrepreneur career. As an old bargainer of the eworld, he tried to buy it for 16 Golds, but Flausino denied, he wanted at least 18 Golds on it, or no deal. After many talks, Flausino surrendered and sold the company for 17 Golds.
Guli Armas Q1 was a success in the market, having an average production of 40 Q1 weapons every day and selling the whole productions, with a daily profit of 1 Gold – or 10% of the gross sales.
Weapon Sales Crisis
The company had a very successful sales for months, but the worst thing that could have happened to a small weapon company happened: we had the start of peaceful times, not even war games were at our disposal. The weapon price hit their lowest point in months and decreased from 7 BRL to 4.5 BRL in a week. Gulitiwi tried everything that he could and put all his efforts to keep the company stable and producing – decreasing costs, and, unfortunately, decreasing his employees’ wages. He wouldn’t be able to keep the company longer if the prices kept getting new low records – his producing cost per weapon was around 4.4 BRL and the market prices kept hitting new lows every minute. Gulitiwi ceased his sales and decided to stock his production until there was war again. He would be able to stock up to 500 weapons without affecting his personal accounts.
Collapse and bankruptcy
The company had almost 200 weapons in stock when something even worse happened: Gulitiwi’s computer crashed and he was unable to buy Iron for the company for over 48 hours. The company ran out of raw materials in the end of the second day and all the employees resigned to not lose their hard work medals. Gulitiwi was really disappointed and decided to close the company for a while, as there was the need of 10 employees to reach maximum production and decrease production costs. The whole stock was used on the battlefield and helped his fast achievement of the General patent.
Gulitiwi was known by having organizations in every country of the world.Most of them created by himself, some of them inherited from dead players. This is the list of his known organizations:
