I have completed my four games in Battle 8, with a very respectable 3-1 record!

*Bravo to me, yes, yes!*
:lol:

There are still 87 active games, so any kind of general scoreboard would be premature. Next update will be sometime in the middle of July, when I expect most games in Battle 8 will have finished.

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.

uk massive has won the tiebreaker game, and therefore Confederation wins Battle 8!

MOH games are next!

I've been reviewing the rules more and more. Some of the MOH winners from earlier Battles are no longer on CC. So, my question, if anyone cares is, would you prefer that I make some process to fill vacancies in the Finals, or should I just default anyone who doesn't show up and credit their would-have-been-opponents with a win?

These are the basic factions I have come up with on my own, based on my sense of history and the dynamics of the functions of nations.
Obviously, these are very generic, because they have to be encompassing of many countries or groups that may be involved in this great conflict.
If you would like to contribute and have a better idea, I would be more than willing to check it out!


Introduction

"War makes rattling good history; but Peace is poor reading."
--Thomas Hardy

Ever thought about World War III? With the advent of nuclear weapons, it's easy to contemplate the calamities and the disasters that a third global conflict could bring about. Certainly in the future, more countries will get their hands on, or develop, nuclear technology capable of decimating millions of people and causing mass ecological damage. World War III is indeed a haunting idea (as a nuclear and/or conventional war).

Have you ever thought of writing the storyline, the plot, to World War III? Maybe you already have?
Here's your chance to do so on Conquer Club!

In this creative, community-driven tournament, 70 players will compete in 8 battles that make up our World War III.

Each battle will be a two-sided skirmish/conflict/invasion that will be ENTIRELY decided by players' votes.

Each player will be allowed to submit their idea, their battle, to the tournament page, and players will be allowed to vote for their favorites.

The maps and the settings will be stated in the battle. For instance, if your idea is an invasion of Antarctica, you can make Antarctica the map. Is it a covert invasion? You can make all games for the battle have Fog of War. Will there be nukes involved? Throw in nuclear spoils.
It's all up to you: as long as you develop your idea and secure the votes, you can write history!

After all 8 battles, the 16 Medal of Honor Candidates will then battle in a best-of-7 single elimination tournament to determine the ultimate World War III warrior (the winner of the tournament)...

Whoever has the most pieces of history approved may be awarded a GA Medal.


Writing History
show: Rules for Submitting History


show: Example of an Approved History


show: How We Will Decide History


There will be 8 opportunities for each of you to write history, in the sense that there are 8 major events, "battles", in our World War III, and each of you have the opportunity to contribute if you'd like, though it's not necessary!

Thank you for your attention, I know it is a lot and I surely don't expect you to read over 5% of it :lol: :lol: =D> =D>
If you find any horrific holes in the format let me know ;)

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.
show: players sorted by total games played and games won in the entire tourney


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!
