When hostilities resumed, the trigger was oil, as the pundits had always expected it would be. This time, the disputed areas were not in the Middle East, but in the waters of the South China Sea. For almost 30 years China had been extracting oil from disputed waters claimed by Vietnam and/or the Phillipines. At first there had been pretenses of negotiation, and the Philippines at least in theory were protected by the U.S. Still, as time went on, it became steadily more obvious that the U.S. was not going to risk war with China, and the Chinese became steadily more arrogant in asserting control of the region.

With rampant poverty in the Philippines, and oil revenues seen as one of the few realistic hopes for correcting it, the Philippine government became steadily more desperate. In the wake of the success of Africa Feeds Africans, a charismatic new leader arose in the House of Representatives, and forced through a bill making it mandatory for the government to attempt to secure control of its undersea resources, through any means, including war.

The precise details of how combat began are lost, for there were no survivors of the first battle. What is known is that at some point on that fateful September day, guided missile frigates of the Chinese and Philippine navies exchanged missiles, leading to their mutual destruction. Within minutes, alarm bells were ringing not only around the South China Sea, but all around the world, for everyone knew that this conflict might escalate and implicate them somehow.

Sure enough, idealists of the AFA recognised the Philippine struggle as being inherently the same as the one they had just gone through in Africa, and within days volunteer corps from Africa and Europe were streaming to the East.....

Fog: Yes, enormous amounts of misinformation are spreading.

I realize it's three weeks past the original deadline, so I don't expect to get Nostradamus credit for this one, but in case you don't have something better I thought I'd offer this up.

This is much better than what I was beginning to think of, so this will work fine. Well done once again, Dukasaur! =D>
It won't count for the Nostradamus Award but you will still get credit for yet another battle scenario! :)

I'll begin the next battle ASAP, either tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for staying patient everyone, it's been a busy past month for me.

Yes, there are a total of 4 players who have dropped from play. I have posted in the Play-Now Thread for reserves and am working to replenish the field. Thanks, I'll be sending invites as soon as possible. :D

I've begun work on writing Scenario 8, but first I should ask: does anybody else still want to take a shot at it?

The drums of war are silent. After eight Major Battle and countless skirmishes, eleven hundred and twenty games in total, spread over 21 months of real time, our simulation of WW III is finally over!

Congratulations to the Confederation of Common Sense, winners of World War Three!

A big congrats to the Medal of Honor and tournament winner, uckuki!
=D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Kudos to thelord, who certainly gave uckuki a tough fight, keeping the best-of-seven final to a 4-3 squeeker! In addition, thelord also won more games in total than any other player in the tournament.

A special little pat on the back to myself for winning the Nostradamus GA. :ugeek:

A tip of the hat to the original organiser, WorldCup4James. Sorry that you couldn't stick around to finish it, but your creativity still shines thorough!
=D> =D>

A big THANK YOU to everyone who played, especially the many reserves who stepped forward to help plug holes left by departing players!

Once again we have an extremely close Battle! Alliance has won Fronts 1, 4, and 6, while Confederation has won Fronts 2, 3, and 5. Front 7 is at the tipping point, and will be decided by a single tiebreaking game between chidone and uk massive.

show: Post Battle 7 MOH games



Battle 7 results
Short version: So far, Alliance has won 2 fronts, Confederation has won on 1, but 4 fronts remain inconclusive as a result of people not joining games/dropping out.

I've put out a call for reserves, and expect to get the missing Battle 7 games started shortly.

I received an email about this tourney but, I'm not in any of the teams. Was I eliminated early on? Bee

You were pretty damn lucky. You entered as a reserve in Scenario 2. (See here for the games you played) In only one scenario you qualified for the MOH finals (See Game 11102052) and don't have to play again until the final Playoff round.
