Confederation Defends Suez, 5 Fronts to 2

Postby WorldCup4James on Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:21 pm

September 14 Update

On this date
Interestingly, read the Wikipedia article about September 14; in 1960 on this date, OPEC was founded. 8-)

Standings Board (click here)

The Confederation has completely routed the attacking EDF; Egypt, on behalf of Russian and non-Gulf Arab states' support, has defended the Suez!

A full update will follow after our Medal of Honor Qualifiers, which now commence as usual, featuring the top 2 Confederation players from the 5 winning fronts that the Confederation claimed.

Game 11664678

Once these games finish, we'll have our summation of Battle 4 and kick off Battle 5!

Updated Standings Board
show: Standings


Would you like to choose the Map AND Settings for the next round? Write and Post a Battle Scenario for Our Fifth Battle!

Choosing the map and settings is very influential and, if you choose wisely, can land you a ton of points and a spot in the Playoffs.

Just write a brief paragraph on a possible World War III scenario. 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 four battles, but four 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: 2012-10-10 21:00:00).

Contextual Requirements
To ensure the plot is not disjointed, I advise you make some sort of reference, be it significant or minute, to the events of the EDF attack on the Suez (the European environmental group, Earth Defense Forces, which came to power in Battle 3, have failed at an invasion of the Suez Canal to, ironically, seize oil).

You may also make reference to the UN ousting of the Brazilian military junta (Battle 2) or 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 Egypt, Europe, Brazil, or China, but there should be some link made.

Possible Ideas to help you out:
  • International response to the failed EDF invasion.
  • Domestic unrest in Europe for reverting back to contradictory, environmentally unfriendly practices.

Work with these ideas or come up with something new!

Here's an example. If you choose to write a scenario, it should look something like this; scenario, followed by sides and maps and settings:
show: Scenario


...was only 5 sentences long.


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 written. Please consider taking part! :o :?


I'm giving all players 7 days (until CC Time: 2012-10-10 21:00:00) 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. ;)

Thanks,
James

The Himalayas rise majestically in the distance.

Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, and the occasional Dogri conversation is exchanged excitedly.

The alliances have been made. The line has been drawn. Dozens of languages and hundreds of dialects will come together as one. They will run out the last vestiges of imperialism, heretofore clinging despite their official ouster. The time has come for the Indian people them to speak as one.
--------------
After being turned back in their seige of the Suez Canal, the EDF was hungry for victory and not a little desperate for support. Where better to turn than the noble peoples of the Indian subcontinent? People with great intrinsic appreciation for the land and for nature, by their accounting. The EDF thought it perfect- an opportunity for a true alliance prepared in every way to turn back the impending wave led by the confederacy of UN commercialist imperialism. For the EDF and the hatchling Alliance, the writing was on the wall: they needed manpower to stem the tide or they ran the risk of being crushed.
---------------
After decades of unrest to the northwest, the mineral and religious conflicts which did not quite simmer to the level of global warfare, international interest had finally come to acknowledge that better than one-fifth of the world's population was indeed Indian. And the EDF came to find that the subcontinent was ready to join the fight. The world was about to hear from its most populous nation, since the near-genocide of the chinese farmers. Finally, they would hear from one fifth of its manpower.

One fifth of its warriors.

Representing the Alliance: United Peoples of India, with considerable assistance from EDF Alliance forces fleeing from Egypt

Representing the Confederation: The UK, Russia, and other major capitalist interests from the UN, who will no longer be tolerated to manipulate and exploit the subcontinent

Map: Indian Empire

Settings:
Escalating spoils (the "home side" using its growing population but unwilling to engage their nuclear program just yet)
Adjacent forts (common spirit only gets you so far in a land of dialects and population sub-groups)
Foggy (the UN has overlooked India a long time... perhaps too long)

Yes, the deadline expired Wednesday evening. But you're still in the lead, Dukasaur! whakamole does have time to catch up, and he's locked away his first scenario.

I was swamped this week with a nice mid-term on the history of Hitler and Nazi Germany. Should be kicking things off again this weekend as soon as I can though.

I am aware of all the missing players, and am doing my best to find new players. I have advertised in my signature as well as in the Play-Now thread.

Why thank you Hank! Glad to see you back in the community. :)

November 4 Update

Image

The Battle Remains Undecided!

As shown by our updated standings board, Fronts 3 and 6 have seen their 16 games divided equally by the 2 factions, each taking 8 wins home. As a result, neither side has claimed victory, and, according to the rules, the best player from the Alliance will face off against the best player from the Confederation. This now takes place in both fronts.

Thus, our games are,

Front 3 Tie-Breaker

Game 11895549--Leverpuller vs. ltcomdata

Front 6 Tie-Breaker

Game 11895550--unionman vs. czech59

As of now, the Confederation has a 3 front-2 front lead.

This means the Alliance representative players in these games will have to win both of these tie-breaker games in order for the Alliance to win the battle!


Good luck! May the best side win!

Alliance Steals Victory After 2 Close Tie-Breakers

Postby WorldCup4James on Tue Nov 13, 2012 12:09 am

November 12 Update

Standings Board (click here)

Indeed, the Alliance representatives have claimed victory in both the tie-breaker games and, as a result, have secured a triumph for the Alliance and pushed back successfully against the Western resource-exploiting powers!

Two clutch, high-stake victories were required for the Alliance to win the Battle, and, sure enough, that's what happened!

Game 11895549
Game 11895550

A full update will follow after our Medal of Honor Qualifiers, which now commence as usual, featuring the top 2 Alliance players from the 4 winning fronts that the Alliance claimed.

Medal of Honors Qualifier Games

Game 11932085
Game 11932086

Once these games finish, we'll have our summation of Battle 5 and kick off Battle 6!

Thanks for your patience!

The score of the war is now,
  • 3 battle victories claimed by the Confederation,
  • 2 battle victories claimed by the Alliance!

Keep in mind, the Playoffs will be represented by both sides, as each battle sends two players from the winning side to the Playoffs.

Would you like to choose the Map AND Settings for the next round? Write and Post a Battle Scenario for Our Sixth Battle!

Choosing the map and settings is very influential and, if you choose wisely, can land you a ton of points and a spot in the Playoffs.

Just write a brief paragraph on a possible World War III scenario. 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 five battles, but three 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: 2012-12-9 23:00:00).

Contextual Requirements
To ensure the plot is not disjointed, I advise you make some sort of reference, be it significant or minute, to the events of the Indian resistance to mining exploitation and their growing bond with the European Earth Defense Forces (which came to power in Battle 3 and attempted a failed invasion of the Suez in Battle 4).

You may also make reference to the UN ousting of the Brazilian military junta (Battle 2) or 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 India, Egypt, Europe, Brazil, or China, but there should be some link made.

Possible Ideas to help you out:
  • International response to the resistance to Western powers and "economic globalization".
  • Domestic unrest in Europe.

Work with these ideas or come up with something new on your own!

Here's an example. If you choose to write a scenario, it should look something like this; scenario, followed by sides and maps and settings:
