EDF CRISIS COUNCIL, IN AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION NEAR BRUSSELS
"Okay, at last we are not alone in the world. The second largest nation on earth is on our side," concluded the Foreign Affairs Minister.

"Trouble is, an angry Russian bear and 300 million Arabs stand between us and our new friend, which will make co-operation difficult," cautioned the Chairman.

"Arabs which would not be angry if not for your premature grab at the Suez," piped up a truculent voice from the other end of the table.

The Chairman glared in that direction. "We all knew the stakes, we all had our say. Please let's not start squabbling over what went wrong in the past. Okay, what can we do better in the future?"

An old general spoke up. "The Suez plan was the right thing to do, although perhaps the timing was bad. But we are not without resources. We have a lot of friends in Africa. Fair-weather friends perhaps; friends who were afraid to line up beside us when it looked like we might not live to see tomorrow, but friends nonetheless. Now that our extinction does not look quite as close as it once did, perhaps it is time to bring them to our orbit."

"You have a plan?"

"Oh, yes. For a century or more, the corporate nabobs of America have built the myth that Africa is incapable of feeding itself. By covertly supporting corrupt regimes and fomenting civil wars, they create artificial food shortages. They then ship food to Africa, thereby accomplishing three goals: perpetuating the myth, keeping Africa subservient and in debt, and keeping food prices high in their own countries to satisfy the rural electorate. They then rape Africa's wealth of strategic metals at rock-bottom prices as payment of the debt which should never have been incurred. It's a brilliant scam, really.

In the last 20 years or so China and other East Asian powers have jumped on the bandwagon and started playing the pity Africa game too.

The really ironic part is that even while starvation is common in Africa, the continent as a whole still exports more food than it imports! Now there's a new homegrown revolutionary movement down there, called Africa Feeds Africans, which is sweeping the countryside. It seeks to put a stop to the exportation primarily of food but also of other resources. It has a lofty goal of exposing all corrupt officials of all political stripes. It is hostile to America and hostile to China, and it very much is in the market for a new friend.

Perhaps a new friend who very much resembles an old friend -- Europa!"

"So what kind of a war are we to expect?" asked a skeptical voice.

"That's the beauty of it. For us, it's a very limited war. Some covert ops here, some resupply flights there. Basically it's a legitimate and spontaneous revolution. We don't have to create it and we don't have to fight, or at least not much. Mainly we just have to help.

And there's an added bonus: the Russians. The Russians used to be major players of the Africa game back in the 1970s, but during the 1990s it all came apart for them and they've pretty much been frozen out of it by American and East Asian money. Giving the Americans and East Asians a black eye here will be pleasing to the Russians. They might even remember that they are Europeans after all!"

"Well, that would be something to see!" declared the Chairman.

====================================================================

Faction representing the Alliance: The A.F.A. (Africa Feeds Africans) revolutionary movement, with aid from Europe, India, and eventually Russia.
Faction representing the Confederacy: Established African dictators and warlords, with aid from the USA, China, and Japan.

MAP: Africa II

Escalating: As a revolution should be.
Adjacent: Local terrain makes reinforcement difficult.
Fog: As much of the action is covert.

The one week allotted for players to post a battle scenario submission for Battle 6 has passed.

The above submission by Dukasaur was the only submission and has gone unopposed.


As a result, his scenario is officially implemented as Battle 6! Congratulations Dukasaur; that's now 3 scenarios for you! Still in the lead for the Nostradumus General Achievement Medal! =D>

The war has spread to yet another continent--Africa!

Games will be out later this week, most likely Thursday.

January 1, 2013 Update

Postby WorldCup4James on Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:28 pm

January 1, 2013 Update

Happy new years fellow competitors!

Like clockwork, our opening games for Battle 6 have finished right on time for MMXIII, and, by the looks of the standings board, it is official that, once again:

The Alliance has claimed victory in Battle 6!

The Alliance emerged victorious in 4 of the fronts, but Front 2 is still undecided. As a result, a head-to-head game between the top from each side has started, to determine who wins Front 2.


But, either way, the Alliance already won a majority and so this will just determine whether they will have won 4-3 or 5-2.

Like usual, a full update and our usual headline story will be ready once this tie-breaker game and the forthcoming MOH Qualifer games finish.

Thanks everyone.

January 6 Update

Standings Board (click here)

The Alliance has dominated play once again, and they're now tied with the Confederation in our score count. The AFA movement was successful in ridding political corruption in Africa.

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

Medal of Honors Qualifier Games

Game 12180557
Game 12180558

Once these games are completed, Battle 7 will arrive!

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

February 10 Update

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 Seventh 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 six battles, but two 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: 2013-02-17 01:00:00).

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 African resistance to exploitation and the growing bond between Europe, India, Africa and Russia (as a result of battles 4, 5, and 6).

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 Africa, India, Egypt, Europe, Brazil, or China, but there should be some link made.

Possible Ideas to help you out:
  • Involving the remaining few powers as a result of losing influence in Africa.
  • 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:
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: 2013-02-17 01:00:00) 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

Postby WorldCup4James on Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:13 pm

As there have been no submissions, I will allow an additional 7 days for any late ideas or if you want to submit just something simple, it might just stand the test of time as the only submission!

I will allow submissions for Battle 7 to be submitted at this here tournament page until CC Time: 2013-02-24 23:00:00.

Should be there be no submissions after that time and I have received no word of any impending submissions to be posted, then I'll create my own for a change! :lol:
