Leader Interviews: Mare

Welcome to yet another interview here at SWAT. Our third interview will be with Mare, leader of SWAT. Mare joined the SWAT leadership group a few months ago but how much is she hiding? Is there anything we don’t know about Mare? Let’s find out!

Many know you as a SWAT leader but before this generation of SWAT, you’ve had your own share of experiences. What armies were you in before SWAT and why did you leave?

So, before I was in this current SWAT, I was part of Zuke’s SWAT in April as a staff member. However, I was not very active and ended up joining Golds for a few weeks. Then, I ended up leaving Golds to continue with SWAT because I ended up having more fun there. Later on, Aubz created the One Direction Army server and I was one of the founders that helped her build the army. While that was going on, I left SWAT then rejoined once again during Badboy’s SWAT as 3ic. However, I realized that it was hard balancing both the armies and left SWAT once again to lead One Direction Army. I then ended up rejoining SWAT in July and never left. I think that no matter what happened I always found my way back home to my first army, SWAT. #SWATFAMBESTFAM

You’ve been leading SWAT for a few months now. How has this experience been for you? Is there something you’ll take away from this experience?

It has been incredible journey leading SWAT, I’ve learned so many new things about major armies and the way they work. I’m still learning things everyday and I still am improving as a leader, but I think that’s the joy of being here. I always have something new to look up to! I have also met so many new incredible people who I’m glad are part of our SWAT team. Also, getting to lead with my great friends along my side has been such a wild/fun ride. The idea of me even leading SWAT, I never thought I would be able to because when I first joined in April, I didn’t even know what to do. So now seeing myself here and leading with the own SWAT creator himself, it’s just something I never expected. Oh and also I learned on folks nem grave!!!!!!!

Everyone knows that you were in ODA but what’s your obsession with One Direction?

When it was 2010, lets just say little mare had posters of their faces all around her room. Also, shirts and bracelets of them. One Direction has always been my favorite band and they definitely got me through my middle school-highschool years! I’m still hoping one of them marry me.

Before joining SWAT for the first time did you know anything about CP Armies? What did you learn from the last-gen that you’ve put to use in this gen as a leader?

I remember on the OG Club Penguin I’d see people dressed in the same outfits chanting things, but I thought they were bots. Something I learned from last gen was to never let the haters bring you down!!!! As a leader, you’re going to get lots of people trying to hate on you, but you just gotta keep your head high and focus on positivity!

In the last interview, we did Blaze mentioned a special talent that he had. Do you have any special talents that we don’t know about?

Well, I can touch my nose with my tongue which is pretty cool LOL. But aside from that, I’m really into fashion and I use to lead a club. I loved sewing clothes and creating new designs. A couple things I’ve created were like pillow cases, wallets, shirts, skirts, purses, and more!

We’re heading into the end of 2020 now, coming out of a difficult year. What plans do you have for your future in SWAT?

I believe the transition out of 2020 will be smooth. I’m sure that when we are done with 2020 and on to 2021 we will gain lots of new members, continue being one of the greatest armies, and collect more land! I have high hopes and plans for the future of SWAT and I know it will continue being successful.

Do you have anything you’d like to say to the troops reading this?

Thank you all for your hardwork, you all are the reason SWAT will remain successful! Also, shout out to all the SWAT Leaders, hcoms, and staff you guys are amazing and I’m glad to work with all of you. Also, thank you Coolguy for this COOL interview!
SIDENOTE: Regan & Orange are simps and if you ever see them in our server make sure you let them know that.

Well, that’s our third interview of the series! A lot of things to take in with some very detailed answers. Who knew Mare could create designs? Well, I hope you enjoyed this interview.

Let us know in the comments below if you enjoyed the interview, also tell us who you want to be interviewed next and tell us any questions you want to ask Mare or any of the other leaders!

Leader Interviews: Ganger90

Welcome to our brand new series of posts here at SWAT! For the first time, we’re creating a series of posts where we ask some questions to our leaders/hcom about their journey in SWAT and in armies. Due to popular demand, the first person we will be interviewing is none other than our creator Ganger90! Ganger has been in CPA for a long time and we all know him as the creator of SWAT as well a leader but is there anything we don’t know about Ganger? Let’s find out!

SWAT has been around for over a decade now! Why did you create SWAT and what struggles came with its creation?

I created SWAT to create an organized platform for all of the rogues on Mammoth who had already loved SWAT before it became an official and legendary army in CPA.

Some of the struggles that came with the creation was dealing with jealousy from other armies when we were first coming up. A lot of people didn’t like the fact that SWAT became such a strong army in a short amount of time.

We all know you as SWAT’s creator and leader but you have been in armies for much longer than many think. What was your first army and how did you find them?

I started off as a rogue for some time and came across armies like Nachos and ACP on the server. Eventually, the first army I officially joined was Nachos I believe before I started making my own armies

You often refer to 2012 as the golden age of SWAT. Can you let our readers know a little more about this year and why it was one of the best years for armies/SWAT?

2012 was when SWAT was finally starting to become an organized and well-trained army. They started to challenge the superpowers like ACP, Nachos, IW and beat ACP in the 2012 Semi Finals of the CPAC Champions Cup. They also managed to take Mammoth for the first time in 2012 and rank #1 on the Top Ten.

We were able to hold a top 3 position in the Top Ten consistently during 2012 as well!

Onto a more fun/casual question now. We all know that you have a love for basketball from your Lebron James videos. When did you first find this love for NBA and is there a specific quote from Lebron that inspired you?

Haha. Yeah I love all sports, primarily basketball, football and boxing. I think it’s a great stress-reliever and hobby to have and would encourage all our troops to try one! But onto Lebron inspiration, one of the greatest quotes that wasn’t actually made by him, but directed towards him is….. “THAT’SS A BADDDDD MANN!!”
And I found the love for sports from a very young age, playing football first and eventually basketball and boxing as well

If you could go back in time and change 1 thing about SWAT/ what you’ve done, what would it be?

One thing I would’ve done is do what we’ve done in the newest generation – Make sure that our history is secure and cannot be altered with or destroyed. Many times we’ve lost precious memories of this great army and I take the blame for that.

SWAT has lasted over a decade already, do you have any plans for the future?

In this generation although we have done great and been very successful, we look forward to taking the next step and achieving what SWAT’s main goal has always been. And that’s being number 1 in every way that you look at it, from the experience, the loyalty, and the overall greatness of this legendary army.
