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.

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!

FStandings and List of Players

Postby WorldCup4James on Mon Dec 19, 2011 12:07 am

Standings are checked by the tournament organiser and verified again using the community-developed Tournament Stats tool.




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 number of rounds is ranked higher (thus, players who finish games quicker are rewarded).

There are 7 fronts, each with 4 Alliance and 4 Confederation players. Whichever side has more wins in each front claims victory in that front. Whichever side claims victory in the most number of fronts triumphs in the Battle. The two players with the most number of wins in each front that the winning side claimed victory in advance to play in 4-7 player Standard games to qualify for the Medal of Honor Cup.

Each player plays every other player on the opposing side once in a 1v1 game. Thus, each player plays 4 1v1 games.

Well here's another dedicated fan chiming in...:)

I'll definitely play. I'm a bit sad to be straitjacketed into a cliched Left/Right dichotomy. I would have liked some more interesting and balanced choices. But after thinking about it for a few hours, I'm not going to suggest any changes. Any more choices would just complicate the tourney and make it less practical, if more philosophically palatable.

Anyway, I'll choose the Confederacy as the lesser of two evils.
