Standings are in Post 2; there is also a link to it from Post 1.
Why thank you Dukasaur!
You may be searching for the updated standings. I have not yet posted the win-loss records from Round 2. Due to the number of games, the moment I update the standings another game will have already finished. Thus, with tourneys like these I tend to have one large update once all games are finished. This also eliminates any error in accidentally counting a game twice.
That fills all our unexpected absences for the round. I sincerely appreciate your patience if your game was delayed.
Once all games are finished I'll post an official update. If you really really want to know how you stand, you can ask me and I'll let you know specifically. But a grand update will arrive for sure once all the games are done (this eliminates the majority of possible errors in updates).
The majority of our second battle of the war has transpired, and thus far the Confederation (UN Security council members) has a significant lead over the Alliance (Brazilian Junta), leading by the score of 3 fronts to 1, as our new standings board below indicates.
But three of our fronts remain tied, as each side ended up winning 8 games each. Thus, according to the rules, the top player from each side will play in a 1v1 game to determine which side (Alliance or Confederation) wins. Thus, after these three tie-breaker games (1 for each front) we'll know which side wins for sure!
You may be confused with how I rank players who have equal number of wins.
Those players who have the same number of wins are ranked by the ART: Aggregate Round Total: this means I add up the number of rounds it took for players to win all their games (so if you won 3 games in 8 rounds each, your ART would be 24r): the player with the lowest ART is ranked higher (thus, players who finish games quicker are rewarded).
The 8 players highlighted in blue in the above standings will now take part in Medal of Honor Cup Qualifiers, as per the Rules,
the winning faction claimed victory in 4 fronts, the 8 players (two from each front) will be randomly divided into 2, 4-player standard games. The winner of each game advances to the MOH Cup.
These players are the top 2 Confederation players (ranked by wins) from those fronts in which the Confederation won.
Would you like to choose the Map AND Settings for the next round? Write and Post a Battle Scenario for Our Third Battle!
All it takes is for you to write a brief paragraph on a possible World War III scenario somehow related to the first two scenarios will suffice. Identify 2 key sides, one for the Confederation and one for the Alliance and the map and settings. Then post it on the tournament page here: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=159969&start=0
It's that simple!
We've now completed two battles, but six key events remain ahead, and each one of you has the opportunity to write history! I will now be accepting any scenario proposals for the next 7 days (until CC Time: 2012-05-22 17:00:00).
Contextual Requirements To ensure the plot is not disjointed, I advise you make some sort of reference to the events of Brazil[/b][/color] (the UN has eliminated the military dictatorship in Brazil but there is still unrest and ecological devastation: consult the newspaper above).
You may also make reference to the workers' revolt put down in China (Battle 1).
The events in your scenario do not have to necessarily stem directly from the events in Brazil or China, but there should be some link made.
Possible Ideas to help you out:
Other military dictatorships arising in South America?
Politicians criticized for war, maybe leading to a civil war?
Feel free to use the newspaper to think of any ideas.
Work with these ideas or come up with something new!
Remember, writing history is NOT required of course, but there is a General Achievement Medal (the Nostradamus Award), which will be given to the player who has the most number of scenarios approved and implemented into the tournament by players' votes. Please consider taking part!
I'm giving all players 7 days (until CC Time: 2012-05-22 17:00:00) so that should give you plenty of time if you have an idea! And it doesn't have to be in depth at all, just something simple so we can get some community involvement in the tournament.

Since the industrial revolution environmental groups have protested the destruction and exploitation of our worlds natural beauty and resources. For equally as long they have been mostly ignored and regarded as "tree hugging hippies". Some have protested peacefully, some have sought legislative action, others such as Earth First and the Earth Liberation Front have taken a more militant approach. When the world witnessed the unilateral destruction of the amazon rainforest recruiting for and belief in these organizations swelled dramatically. Support has grown so much due to outrage at the actions of the united nations security council member nations for their actions in Brazilla that goals that had previously only been fantasy and pipe dreams now may well be attainable. to truly enact change the environmental groups need true power, the power only established governments an wield. The governments and populace of the European nations have always been more supportive of environmental causes. It is In Europe that they hope to attain the power and influence to change the destructive course of the world. Not wanting to be undone by traitors from within like happened in China, or to be flanked militarily as happened in the amazon basin the Earth Defense Forces (EDF) have developed a multi faceted approach to their goal of attaining power. The peacefully minded groups will build popular support finding support in local, state, and national governments. Their goals are to quickly gain majority influence in European governments and gain support for the movement while working tirelessly to identify and root out traitors. Simultaneously the more militant groups will use any means necessary to eliminate those in power that are opposed to their earth first agenda, particularly in the U.N security council governments of Russia, France, and the U.K. Will the environmental movement gain control of European power and influence? Or will yet another popular peoples movement be exposed and violently crushed?
Faction represented by the alliance: Earth Defense Forces(EDF), supportive governments, and gathered support
Faction represented by the confederation: U.K., Russian, and French Governments, non-supportive governments.
settings: Escalating spoils (gathering of support) Unlimited reinforcements (good transportation networks and social media) Foggy (secret government infiltration and spy tactics)
I am aware of some of the players who failed to accept invites. I have contacted them personally and am actively searching for reserves.
I am in search of at least 2 players who can take over for people who have gone off the site for whatever reason. If somehow you can help get players (I've done as much as I can posting in various places), it would be a great help!
