Second Indonesia-Australia War
The war begins
The first stage of the war started on March 16, 2010. Australian Prime Minister Cerb took advantage of an open war with Indonesia (opened during the Brazillian invasion of Australia in December 2009) to launch an attack on Papua, Indonesia. This was the first time in eRepublik history that anyone had attacked an original Indonesian region.[?] There was little purpose to this, as all it did was activate the mutual protection pacts of Indonesia against Australia. The battle activated MPPs with Pakistan, Hungary, Turkey, Russia, United Kingdom, Slovenia, and Brazil.
Northern Territory attacked due to hacked account
On March 23, 2010, Indonesian President blackmanta's account was hacked.[?] During this time, his account was used to attack Northern Territory, Australia. The battle was closed pre-maturely, due to blackmanta's account being hacked. MPPs with USA, Canada, Greece, India, and Poland were activated for Australia, however they were later cancelled after Indonesian citizens appealed to Admin to remove them, as they were opened due to a hacked account.[?]
Indonesian attack on Australia
First Battle of Northern Territory
Midway through April 9 (Day 871), Arya Gunawan attacked Northern Territory. The battle activated MPPs with USA, Canada, Croatia, Greece, and Poland. Australia was able to successfully defend this region, although due to a bug, the battle did not end until several hours after it should have.[?]
Battle of Western Australia
Also on Day 871, just prior to the new day, Arya Gunawan attacked Western Australia. This battle would be the biggest battle in eRepublik history at the time (to be surpassed a few weeks later), but it would also be a controversial battle. The battle was officially declared a victory by Indonesia.
Second Battle of Northern Territory
The Indonesian congress accepted a peace proposal arranged with Xavier Griffith and Arya Gunawan, originally on the condition of not attacking one another, and used this proposal to prevent Australia from counterattacking Western Australia once they had won it.
