The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part One

A few weeks ago I announced that I would be starting a project where I would take an in-depth look at every single war in Erepublik history. Today, I finally got far enough ahead in the project that I felt I could start releasing some of it. I am about half way done with the project right now but I still need to do some proofreading before I release the rest. I just read over these two about the first two wars of Erepublik. They are not that major of wars but here is just a taste of what I have been working on.

Belgian Annexation

Analysis
The Belgian Annexation was the first war recognized by Erepublik although it was not a real war. On April 10th the Belgians declared war on the United Kingdom hoping to be annexed into a more developed country. The reason Belgium did this was that in the first few days of the war module the defender's bonus always went to the side who was attacked first. The Belgians did this so that the U.K. would have that bonus even when they were really attacking Belgian lands. They also did it because if the U.K. declared war on them it would activate several Mutual Protection Pacts of the Belgians and cost their soon to be mother country gold. Being outnumbered 5-1 at the time the British took Belgium with ease in the smallest war in Erepublik history with a mere 18 battles.

Slovakian War

Analysis

In the first war in Erepublik that was not started with the intention of annexation, Slovakia declared war on the Czech Republic. Both of these nations were very small with neither nation having more than three regions and the war proposal only passed 2-1. The Slovakians said that they wanted more land and that they did not like the Czechs so they decided to go to war with them since they were also their weakest neighbor. However, the Slovakians did not count on the Czech receiving international support.

Due to the small population of Slovakia, a few Pakistani soldiers came over to fight for the Czech. They were small in numbers but they were able to fight back the Slovakians. Although this war almost had twice as many fights then the Belgian annexation most of the fighting came in the first day in the region of Moravia where there were 24 fights. After that, the fighting died down and the Pakistani soldiers were the last ones standing and we even saw the first “Peaceful battle” in Eastern Slovakia where there was not a single fight, the winner was simply the first to press the secure region button.

North American War

  • Link to Erepublik war details page
  • Wikipage of USA-Canada War
  • Duration April 11th-April 26th (15 days) (8 Active)
  • Aggressor: United States
  • Defender: Canada
  • Total number of fights: 1448
  • Fights per day: 181
  • Battles: 32
  • Result: United States initial invasion beaten back by Canadian counter offensive; Status quo ante bellum.

Analysis

Also referred to as the U.S.-Can war was considered to be the first real war. There were much confusion and controversy because of this. On the first day of the release of the war module Nave, the president of the United States proposed war with Canada. Faltnor the Canadian President immediately proposed an MPP with Sweden to deter the Americans. When Nave saw this he had his proposal canceled and then later learned that the MPP was not accepted yet and that even if it was that it would not come into play until after the war had started thus making it useless. He then had the war proposal resent and the war broke out as planned.

The United States initial invasion reported heavy losses and most Canadian provinces were holding strong. However, controversy soon struck when several Americans based in Honolulu found a glitch that allowed them to use the hospital multiple times. They took advantage and wiped out the Canadian defenders. This gave them the edge and the Americans took every battle on the first day. The admins soon began a cease fire while they sorted out the bugs and for one week all the battles were halted.

After that, the Canadians received much foreign support from Europe and were able to drive back the Americans and reclaim most of their land. When they reached Manitoba the largest most important battle of the war broke out with 334 fights. The winner of the battle would get to go on the offensive the next day. Manitoba was the last Canadian region under U.S. control. If they were to lose it, then it would have opened up the U.S. to Canadian invasion. If Canada lost, they would lose their momentum and have to defend their own regions once again. Despite the last effort by Nave the Canadians squeaked by and went on to attack North Dakota and Minnesota.

On the last day of the war, the Canadians tried to take two American states but were not able to maintain a sizable force there. The war looked as if a stalemate would continue as the Americans began to get support from Pakistan. Nave and Faltnor soon signed a peace treaty which effectively ended the war with no clear winner.

Now people often say that the reason the U.S. could not hold Canada was that they were unorganized. I would have to disagree with that. The U.S. military seemed very organized during the war the thing that cost them the most was they were basically the guinea pigs for the war module which at the time really favored the defenders. First off the defensive bonus at the time was 250% instead of the current 150% this is why the Americans received such heavy losses the first day. Then a lot of it was due to people not knowing how the war module would work. Most people were under the impression that you would have to live in a border territory in order to fight, this turned out to be untrue. The losses could not have been avoided even with better communication. The only way for the Americans to of increased their success would have been to wait a week or two before declaring war.

The most crushing thing for both countries though was their economies after the war. The United States had a huge food shortage due to the decreased productivity of low wellness soldiers and the Canadian economy also had problems since they had based their economy on the foreign fighters. Once they left there was a huge vacuum in the market which also caused shortages although they did not have as severe shortages as the U.S. due to the fact they had a smaller population to feed.

Faltnor faced much criticism from Canadians as well as Nave who received a considerable amount of criticism from the Americans. In the end, Faltnor did not run for reelection but Nave served one more term. The new president of Canada, Braham a noted critic of Faltnor tried hard to get Canada into the Mediterranean alliance to avoid another war. He succeeded in doing so but it cost him some points with the Scandinavians.

The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part Three

As some of you may notice this is in fact a re-post. The reason I am re-posting it is that the last time I posted it someone posted five articles in the same hour bumping mine off the page but at least we were able to have a Party in his comments. I did, however, add another war to this part so that it is not the exact same thing as what I posted earlier. Hope you enjoy it.

Moldavian Annexation

Analysis

In the first week of war, the tiny nation of Moldavia declared war on Romania in hopes of being annexed. The war was quiet at first, for the first two days Moldavia let up their arms and allowed the Romanians to march on in with only four fights in six battles. Once the Romanians reached the final Moldavian region some of the Moldavians decided to have a last stand and 39 fights were recorded at the battle of Transnistria.

This was far from enough for the vastly outnumbered Moldavians to chalk up a victory and Moldavia fell. In fact, Moldavia was not able to even win a single fight in this war. Somehow they had managed to go 0-10-33. The United Kingdom was the only other country that had a citizen win a fight in the war, they won two fights in the final battle.

Turkish Jihad

Analysis
Although it was not the first war where a nation did not want to be annexed it was the first war that the aggressor had successfully wiped the enemy off the map. The war was no surprise as the president of Israel had been inactive in the days leading up to the war and the Turkish forces outnumbered the Israelis 10 to 1. On April 12th the Turks began their march down south and met heavy Israeli resistance at Haifa. A determined Israeli defense put up a good 41 fights, a high for the war, but it was not enough to stop the Turks.

Worn down by their defensive stand in Haifa the Israelis were only able to put up 20 fights in the next two battles at the north and central district and once again the Turks were victorious. The Turks, however, were not winning by huge numbers, the Israelis could have possibly stopped the Turks if they were to of gotten outside support, however, they did not have a leader to find support and most of the support they could of focusing on the war in North America. This set a precedent of smaller countries being wiped out due to other nations that would normally have been able to help to ignore those smaller countries and focusing on the bigger fish to fry in the U.S. and Canada.

In the end, Israel lost and even with their defender's bonus, they were not able to stay above .500 when it came to winning fights. A few weeks later an Israel independence move began but nothing major has happened mostly due to the lack of the fight for freedom module.

The War Down Under

Analysis

When Indonesia attacked Australia it looked as if Australia would go down without a fight. At the time Indonesia was the second strongest nation in the world and Australia was fairly weak. This war was basically a magnified version of the Jihad. In the first battle at Queensland the Australians fought back as hard as they could and put up a stunning 289 fights but in the end, they were not able to secure the region and Indonesians set foot on Australian soil.

After that stand many Aussies were tired and the weapons market was depleted, because of this the Indonesians were able to take the remaining territories with much less resistance then they faced in Queensland. Unlike the Israelis, Zaney, the Australian president campaigned hard to attract foreign support but faced too much competition with the war in North America. The remaining regions of Australia soon fell to Indonesia and unlike in Israel, we saw an exodus of the active population of Australia.

Most migrated to the United States or the United Kingdom due to English being the dominant language in both countries and have made significant contributions to their new home countries. There have also been talks about a movement to free Australia but due to the lack of the fight for freedom module, we have not seen any organization of an actual revolution.

Indian Annexation

Analysis
In the second smallest war (if you would even call it that) Pakistan made their first move for expansion by annexing India. Although Pakistan declared the war the Indian president did in fact support the annexation. India never really had a huge population while Pakistan at the time had a large number of people. The mismatch was huge and the Pakistanis never faced much real opposition.

The Indian population was so small that there was only fighting in two out of the 22 battles while the other 20 were silent battles with Pakistani soldiers just piling into the region, the Indian resistance knew they had no chance. The largest fight they put up was at Gujarat, with only 19 fights it was the bloodiest of the war but it was still a huge Pakistan victory. As expected the Indians soon fell to the Pakistanis and the annexation was completed.

The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part Four

You can thank the Canadian Mounties for this re-post being necessary.

This here is part four of my project and it will cover the Scandinavian wars along with the war between Japan and South Korea. I made sure to include five wars in here so I could get all of the wars with Sweden and Norway in one big article so hope you enjoy. There are over 1,600 words in this article and it took open four whole pages on Microsoft word making it my longest article yet.

Finish of the Finish

Analysis
During the first week of the war module, the Scandinavian powers did not declare war even though Sweden and Norway were number one and number two in military power respectively. This was probably because Sweden has sent soldiers to fight for Canada and did not want to fight two wars at once.

Finland was an easy target. Norway and Sweden had always been allies and had very strong armies but Finland never could join in on the success of its neighbors. Norway decided that they would take Finland first and let Sweden focus on the stronger parts of Europe down south. The president faced some difficulty declaring the war even though the war would benefit Norway and it was obvious that they would succeed congress was reluctant to accept the proposal with a vote 16-13 in favor of war. This was a slim victory in a time where most proposals passed by large margins.

When the war first broke out the Finish fought back early on at Lapland putting up 53 fights but their army soon grew tired and the Norwegians poured in taking all of Finland in a sweep and by the time they reached the last territory the Norwegians took it without a fight. This marked the beginning of the expansion of the Northern Alliance.


The Danish War

Analysis

Right after Norway finished their first war Sweden started theirs. With Finland now under Norwegian control Sweden moved south and attacked Denmark in another lopsided war. Like Finland, Denmark put up a stand at the beginning of the war but after that, they ran out of gas and the Swedish took Denmark with incredible ease. Due to Denmark’s location, this war did not last long. Sweden was able to attack four out of Denmark’s five regions the first day thus preventing them from having time to prepare a final stand. With their defenses spread thin the already outnumbered Denmark did not stand a chance.

Some veterans here may remember this war for one person, Gerv Per, The Danish president who was notorious for his hate of the Swedes. Though he did not change the outcome much he did begin to start a resistance by jokingly encouraging the Danish people to revolt by “Smoking outsides schools and hospitals” after the end of the war but his activity has been lacking recently.

Seoul Wars

  • Link to Erepublik war details page
  • Wikipage of Japan-South Korea War
  • Duration April 24th-May 8th (15 days, 10 active)
  • Aggressor: Japan
  • Defender: South Korea
  • Total number of fights: 232
  • Fights per day: 23.2
  • Battles: 19
  • Result: South Korea wins a few successful defensive battles but Japan stays on the offensive and conquers the peninsula, South Korea eliminated.

Analysis
This war was really fun to watch as it played out. Every war up to this one had been a massacre except for the stalemate between the U.S. and Canada. This war was the most evenly matched at the time and the admins even had to delay the war because they did not know what to do if the defender had completely stopped the attackers.

These two nations were rather insignificant at the time so globally few nations really cared about the outcome. When Japan invaded South Korea there was no cry to help fend off the Japanese and Japan did not bother to find war allies to aid in their offensive. It was purely a war of two below average nations.

Japan quickly overwhelmed the South Koreans in their first wave of assaults but they were held back in two regions the next day and then had to switch over to the defensive side of things. This was no problem for the Japanese as the defender bonus was more than enough to keep the Koreans from regaining their ground. The advantage in the battles kept see-sawing back in forth but in the end, the Japanese took advantage of their size and beat the Koreans back all the way to Gangwon. There the Koreans made their last stand in the largest and most important battle of the war. The outcome of the war would be decided in this battle if Korea lost then they would be eliminated, they had to win. Despite a valiant 68 fight effort the Japanese squeaked by and took the region. The war was over and Japan had won the first non blowout war.

First German War

Analysis

A week after taking Denmark the Swedish war machine was ready for more. They marched further south into mainland Europe and took on Germany. Germany did put up a fight with some aid from nations in the Mediterranean alliance and was very well organized but they were not able to match up with the size of the Swedish invaders.

The great detail of the German organization was evident in the way battles were fought. Some battles would have 2 fights while another region would have 360 fights on the same day. There were many fights in this war but even with the Mediterranean alliance backing their opponent the Swedish prevailed by a huge margin winning 698 fights to a mere 135 and that 135 came with the defenders bonus. However, it is also worth mentioning that there was a bug that incited a civil war amongst the Swedish soldiers. A good chunk of those 700 fights the Swedes won were from Swede on Swede violence.

Soon after the war, the Swedish and Germans agreed on a peculiar peace treaty. Sweden would let Germany keep a few of their regions but they would have to keep a mutual protection pact with Sweden and some other conditions which would keep Germany from being too independent. The territories, however, were handpicked by Sweden so that they made sure that they would keep the territories that shared borders with other countries that they did not already border. It took the admins two weeks to really put the treaty into effect since it involved giving back regions to Germany and it was very restricting but in the end, the war put Sweden closer to the Mediterranean alliance and made them more of a threat to Europe.

Russian War

Analysis

On the day Sweden launched their second offensive war into Germany Norway launched theirs heading eastward once again into the largest country area wise. Russia received a bit more support then Finland did due to the fact that people began to have growing concerns about the two Scandinavian powers gobbling up so much land and the fact that taking Russia would open up so many new countries for Norway to invade. The Norwegians caught a break here though as most of the foreign fighters went to help Germany fight off the Swedes rather than defending Russia.

The Norwegians felt resistance throughout the whole invasion but it was not too much for them to overcome. Most of the Russian population lived on the European side of the Urals and Norway got to attack those areas first. Two days after launching their attack from Finland Norway had managed to take St. Petersburg and Moscow. With those population centres now under their control they went on to the Urals where they fought a key battle with 110 fights against the Russians who remained, their goal was to block off the Norwegians there and keep the Asian part of Russia independent. They were unsuccessful though and Norway then went on to take the Siberian part of Russia with ease. They experienced some resistance in the very far eastern parts but the Russians and their sympathizers were just grasping for straws. Norway had complete control of Russia by May 6th.

This war ended the period of Scandinavian expansion as it was the last of the wars by Norway and Sweden to end. Despite the fact that Sweden’s war did not end until the 20th of May there were no fights after the 4th. With their new territory, Norway now borders Alaska and was in striking distance to North America. Although there was never any talks of war it sent a wake-up call to many countries telling them that they would have to take more action if they wanted to keep these foreign powers from growing too powerful.

The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part Five

With only ten wars left and one page left to cover we are getting very close to the present day. I have decided against doing a long article like I did last time since our media will more than likely be spammed by people asking “how do I eat” right after I post it and nobody will get to read it. So here is part five of the seven part series.


Chinese Annexation

Analysis

Due to China's inactivity and small population, some Pakistanis were able to mount a successful take over in China. They then declared war on Pakistan in hopes of annexation, due to China's inactivity they were able to have the proposal pass five votes to none. Though no other nations officially condemned the takeover several individuals did move to China to fight the Pakistanis although without any foreign support there was not much hope for China.

China did have an advantage when they started this war geographically. China at the time had 29 regions second only to the United States with 51. This gave them a lot of time to get organized before they would be completely wiped off and it ended up taking Pakistan nine days to capture all of China even though they never lost a battle. When the war started China did not have very many people to defend their provinces and Pakistan just rolled over them at the beginning. Later though, the defense did get organized at Yunnan and there were 129 fights in that battle but it was not enough to deter the Pakistanis and the defense got tired out after that battle.

After the delay, the Pakistanis moved on to take the rest of China and increase their region count to fifty. However, these annexations by Pakistan have not proved helpful as there were very few citizens who lived in China and India so they did not receive a big citizen or productivity boost.

The Alpine Wars

  • Link to Erepublik war details page for Italy and France.
  • Wikipage of France-Switzerland War
  • Duration May 11th-May 13th (2 days)
  • Aggressors: Italy and France
  • Defender: Switzerland
  • Total number of fights: 1,130 (729 Italian and 401 French)
  • Fights per day: 565
  • Battles: 5 (2 Italian and 3 French)
  • Result: Italy takes one region while France takes the other three, Switzerland eliminated.

Analysis

This war was unique in the fact that there were actually two nations trying to take one country at once. They met on the battlefield in three different battles but due to the lack of a system to determine the spoils of war the region went to the nation who started the battle first.

At the start of May, a large group of immigrants flocked to Switzerland in hopes of starting up a Utopian society and they were successful until they signed a mutual protection pact with Norway. This worried members of the Mediterranean alliance who feared that with this happening soon after Sweden took most of Germany that the Scandinavians were gaining influence down close to their borders and that this upstart Switzerland may pose a threat if they were allied with Sweden. France and Italy then both declared war on Switzerland before the MPP would be activated.

The Northern Alliance then sent down troops to help defend Switzerland while the Mediterranean alliance sent their troops to back the invasion. It was a clash of two powerful alliances in a neutral nation. Unlike China, Switzerland only had four regions and did not have much time to gather support. The French who declared war before the Italians took the first two regions with ease while the Italians took one of the remaining two. The Italians then got a chance to take the last swiss region but the Swiss made a determined offensive there putting up 401 fights (which matched the total number of fights by the French in the whole war) and kept the Italians from finishing off Switzerland. After the Italian defeat, the French came in and were able to win in 179 fights against a tired Swiss defense.

In the end, the Mediterranean alliance had won and a new Iron Curtain seemed to of descended upon Europe.


The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part Six

Only one more part left after this. We are starting to get real close to the present day here as we get as far as the South African war. This is my longest article yet with 2,137 words but I do this because I do not want the last edition to have too many wars as I plan to do something extra in part seven. Here is part six and I would also like to thank all my subscribers as right now we have 99 and I expect to hit 100 with this edition.

The Eastern European War

Analysis
In what will become the last of the blowout wars, the Romanians made their second offensive into another country. The possibility of war started in May when the president of Romania offered a union with Ukraine. The Romanians soon declared that it was for the benefit of the Ukrainian people in that it would keep them from being invaded by Norway but it was later found out that part of the Romanian motive was to take back some historical lands. After the proposal for a union was rejected by Ukraine the president of Romania issued a statement saying that most Ukrainians were not Ukraine in real life, therefore, they did not have Ukraine's best interest in mind. He moved for war and the Romanian Congress passed it 27-3.

The Ukrainians were not very determined to find support internationally and they did not put up much of the fight themselves. However, Turkey did have a mutual protection pact with Ukraine and the Turks did fight even though there was no official announcement of the Turks officially entering the war. When Romania first invaded they experienced strong resistance but managed to win by a good sized margin in each region. After that, they had little trouble taking the rest of the Ukrainian lands until they got to Taurida where the defenders made their last stand. The defenders put up 69 fights, a high for the war but they ended up being overrun by Romanians and the war was then over.

Relations between the Turks and the Romanians have been choppy since that war. Romania expected a walk in the park but Turkey made things more difficult for them. The Romanian's won the war but the Turks put up four times as many fights as the Ukrainians and cost the Romanian's much more than it would have taken to overrun Ukraine.

The Sausage Wars

  • Link to Erepublik war details page
  • Wikipage of Germany-Poland War
  • Duration May 27th-June 6th (9 days)
  • Aggressor: Germany
  • Defender: Poland
  • Other defenders: United States and the Czech Republic
  • Total number of fights: 1639
  • Fights per day: 182.11
  • Battles: 27
  • Result: Despite a successful defensive at first the Germans win when the U.S. defenders are reallocated to the Czech Republic, Poland eliminated.

Analysis
After losing most of their lands to Sweden, Germany decided to go on the offensive and make up for their lost lands by invading Poland. Even though Sweden had just invaded Germany they had good relations and Sweden backed the Germans in the invasion. Germany looked like an easy horse to bet on but due to a mutual protection pact with the United States, many foreign fighters flocked to Austin where there was a Q4 hospital. These immigrants then joined up with the Polish people and made sure the Germans would receive heavy resistance.

The defense was strong and the Polish won two key battles at Great Poland and Silesia which was the largest battle of the war with 208 fights. However, in the last minute offensive, the Germans were able to break the Polish lines and pull out a victory in Pomerania. Because of that offensive, the Germans were able to continue their advance but they did not have much left in the tank after that and Poland easily secured its regions. The Germans then had to go on the defensive but they easily beat off the Polish and healed their wounds in preparation for yet another assault.

After a few days rest the Germans caught a huge break. Another war broke out between the Czech Republic and Hungary. The United States had a mutual protection pact with the Czech Republic and then was forced to split their troops between the two wars. Poland then lacked the resources to launch a counter attack but they continued to put up a fight against the Germans. They would win two more battles but they could not keep up with the Germans with the decreased amount of foreign support. The Polish people put up a great fight but in the end, they lost. At its time this war was huge. With 1639 fights it became the largest war on record when it was over with almost 200 more fights then the North American war which had 1448.

Hungary Hungary Hungarians

Analysis

During the middle of the sausage wars, Hungary attacked the Czech Republic in an attempt to take the Slovakian lands that they thought rightfully belonged to them for historical reasons. The thing that makes this war unique is that the war was not waged to take an entire nation, rather to take the lands that another nation held before it was taken over. The Hungarians did not want to take all of the Czech Republic, instead, they just wanted the lands Slovakia owned before the Czech Republic took over.

When the Hungarians first invaded they experienced a situation similar to the Germans in that they had support from a major alliance in the Mediterranean alliance but a mutual protection pact with the United States introduced hundreds of foreign fighters. With that foreign support for the Czech, the Hungarians could not gain any ground in their first couple of days but they eventually were able to gain ground and take the Slovakian lands.

The president of the U.S. at the time made an announcement. He declared that the U.S. would send troops to aid the Czech Republic for the next two days and would keep them their further as long as the two parties would work towards peace. They made their defensive stand at Moravia and they met the Hungarians with the biggest battle of the war with 136 fights. The U.S. withdrew its troops “officially” but this was a key point in the war. Moravia was a strategic location for both armies. Moravia shielded the rest of the Czech Republic from attack. No Hungarian nations bordered the other two regions of the Czech Republic so as long as the Czech held Moravia then they could keep their capital safe.

After the Hungarians lost at Moravia they offered a peace proposal to Yugi, the president of the Czech Republic. Most of the Czech citizens were in joy as this meant the end to the war and that they would remain independent. However, Yugi was actually a foreigner from Brazil who managed to win the election in the Czech Republic after he moved there (This was before the 10 day rule and the Czech Republic was very small). He constantly declined the treaties and his public relations began to deteriorate, rumors of him stealing gold surfaced although there was never any admin intervention.

The Hungarians though in a gracious move declared that they had no intention of advancing further into the Czech Republic and any further fighters from their sides would just be renegades. The Czech, however, could not breath easy, these renegades were still putting up a fight in Moravia and Yugi was not signing a peace treaty it looked as if the Czech would have to wait until the end of the month before they could elect a new president and end the war,

The war continued on for a few days with constant battles at Moravia. The Czech was holding on but they were not winning by much. All that was interrupted when Nave entered the scene. Nave was the former president of the U.S. and the president during the U.S. war with Canada. The Mediterranean alliance had backed Canada in that war and recently joined that alliance. Nave, however, was looking for vengeance and right before the battle ended he loaded up on gold and wellness packs and just fought until he ran out of both. In doing this he actually managed to single handily win regions for the Czech Republic, one was originally Hungarian. The Mediterranean alliance was not happy at this and then sent troops to retake the areas Nave had taken back in revenge.

They were successful and let the Czech keep the lands they had before Nave invaded. There was another big fight at Moravia but after that, a peace treaty was finally signed and the war was over. Soon after the Sausage wars had become the largest war the Hungarian war topped it by over 500 fights. During this war, Vaclav gained international attention as he was mostly responsible for gaining support for the Czech which Yugi was not doing. In the next election, Ivan Hat another Czech who fought alongside and was endorsed by Vaclav won the presidency and their age of turmoil had ended.

The Indian Ocean War

Analysis

Back in early June Indonesia proposed war on South Africa, they claimed it was just for fun, however, members of the Pan American alliance saw it differently. They recognized that if Indonesia were to take South Africa then they would have access to South America. Three nations of the PANAM were involved officially and many foreign fighters came to stop the Indonesian powerhouse from expanding.

On the first days, the defenders set up along the eastern coast of South Africa and waited for the oncoming invasion. They won one of the battles but were unable to hold both beaches that came under attack. The next day though they secured all their regions and even threatened to retake Western Australia. This was not enough though and the war began to turn into a defenders war for the next few days. Then on June 14th the admins paused the war and did not restart it until the 23rd of July. This made the war seem much longer than it really was.

The reason was most likely do the fact that some Indonesians including their president had somehow glitched their strength to higher levels. The Indonesian president at first had him in the mid sevens range but then it shot up to 32 and then 100.48. The admins then tried hard to address the issue and other bugs in the war. It would be unfair to claim that the Indonesians were cheaters quite frankly because we do not know for sure if other people have done it. The Indonesian president was easy to catch because he is the president and he also got his up to unbelievable levels, there could have easily been lesser known people who used the glitch to get up to believable levels.

However, once the war resumed Indonesia was able to gain a bit of ground and took every coastal region from South Africa. Even though declared that the war was just for fun the real reason for it became clear when they proposed a peace treaty with South Africa. Their main goal was in fact to have access to South America. Although it looks unlikely that the Indonesians will be able to take South America the possibility is now there. However with Indonesia starting to fall behind this might not be as big of as a threat as it would have been two months ago.

Once again we see the previous war record broken for the total number of fights. At the time when this war ended the past three wars had all been the three largest wars in history with the number of fightings increasing each time. This war had 2,803, which was over 500 more than the last record holder. If Indonesia were to attempt to take over South America that war would surely top 5.000 fights however that is seeming less and less likely.

The Complete History Of War In Erepublik: Part Seven

It is finally here, part seven of the complete history of the war in Erepublik. I will wrap up the project with the last two wars and then have the top wars listed. I had to repost this due to spam.

The Second German War

  • Wikipage of Second Sweden-Germany War
  • Duration July 18th - July 28th (10 days)
  • Aggressor: Sweden
  • Defender: Germany
  • Total number of fights: 3,310
  • Fights per day: 331
  • Battles: 44
  • Result: Germany puts up heavy resistance but ultimately loses, Germany eliminated

Analysis

Due to their last two wars, Germany took on a much different shape in this war. With most of their original land lost to Sweden, the Germans invaded Poland to make up for the lost regions. The German's, however, did not count on the people of those regions to pose a threat. Soon after Germany conquered Poland a resistance group led by Popolo was known as the Poland Secessionist Front started up. The party quickly rose to power and in July Popolo became president.

In his first few days as president, Popolo canceled all of Germany's mutual protection pacts and trade agreements including the long standing MPP with Sweden. This went against the contract that had been signed back after the first German war that allowed Germany to remain independent. In the contract, it said that if Germany did not follow the rules then Germany would belong to Sweden but the admins did not do anything and Sweden then declared war on Germany. They expected little resistance and the war to be over fairly quick.

The Swedes did not count on a large amount of foreign support Germany would receive. Many foreign fighters from places such as Pakistan flocked to Germany to get a chance to fight against the number one ranked military in the game. At first, to the surprise of the Swedish the defenders succeeded by successfully defending every Germany region the first day, this was a huge upset since Germany had to defend five regions at once and that makes it easier for the attacker to launch a last-second offensive. The next day the Swedish faced being on the defensive for the first time in the history of their military, the German army was not strong enough to launch an offensive so the Swedes had a day to rest before they would try again to break the German line. On their next attempt, the Swedes were able to take one of the regions and keep their drive alive.

That set the tone for the rest of the war. Germany would win a few battles each day but Sweden would win one or two so they could stay on offense. On July 22nd the Germans made their final stand at Saarland but they were not able to overcome the Swedish military and they soon fell. This war followed the pattern of the last three wars and became the largest war in Erepublik when it was finished with 3,310 fights.


The Balkan War

  • Wikipage of First Balkan War
  • Duration July 20th – August 2nd (13 days)
  • Aggressor: Turkey
  • Defenders: Greece and Bulgaria
  • Other Defenders: Romania
  • Total number of fights: 3,845 (3,698 Greek and 147 Bulgarian)
  • Fights per day: 295.77
  • Battles: 35 (33 Greek and2 Bulgarian)
  • Result: Turkey takes all but one region from Greece, Bulgaria retains their status quo.

Analysis

In the July general elections, Rathen Holton rose to the presidency after a takeover led by the goons had taken place. Soon after his election, a group of goons in Greece started making demands that the Turkish government apologize for the real-life Armenian Genocide that happened during world war one. Soon the goons took aim at Turkey's nationalistic pride and referred to Atatürk, one of their national hero as Atajerk. This angered many Turkish citizens and the Turkish president then proposed war on Greece. The proposal was shot down by a large margin mostly due to the fact that most Turks did not think they could win if they had to fight both Romania and the United States.

A couple of days later though the Turkish offered the U.S. Icon-gold.gif 500 GOLD in exchange for the cancellation of their mutual protection pact with Greece. Dish accepted the gold and with the U.S. out of the picture the president of Turkey once again moved for war. This time it was approved by a large margin and the Turkish prepared for war. Foreign fighters flocked to Romania to help defend Greece while the Turkish got support as well and hired mercenaries.

Bulgaria was brought into the war directly due to the fact that they had an MPP with Greece however this situation was unique in the fact that Bulgaria's lands were open to attack by Turkish forces since they shared a border with Turkey. This was the first time that a nation has had their lands opened up to an attacking country through an MPP. The Bulgarians called for peace but the Turkish continued their attacks on Greece and Bulgaria throughout the first day. The Bulgarians were able to defend their border regions the first day and after they beat the Turks back the Turks accepted their peace proposal. The war was back to being on one front.

The Turkish swept into the northern parts of Greece early on facing good sized resistance as they advanced with about 100 fights a battle. They had a successful campaign on the northern front but they ran into difficulty trying to take the island of Crete. The first battle of Crete had 697 fights making it the bloodiest battle in the history of Erepublik. Greece held on to win there but the next day the Turkish were able to take the island and preceded to execute a two pronged attack with Turkish forces moving south from the lands they took in Northern Greece and then having the forces that took Crete to move up north to take Southern Greece and the Aegean Islands.

The Turkish continued to face good sized resistance throughout their advancement and they soon surrounded the last Greek region in Central Greece. They fought hard to take the region but the Turks just did not have enough gas left in the tank to take the region. The Turks were forced to go on the defensive after losing that region but they did not give up any of their newly conquered regions. They tried to take Central Greece three more times but they were unsuccessful each time. Soon when the August general elections rolled around the Greeks were able to politically take over Turkey now that they could vote in the Turkish elections. Once the Greeks got the presidential spot they signed a peace treaty and ended the war.

This war also followed the pattern of wars in Erepublik becoming increasingly bloodier with the one topping the old record with 3,698 fights or 3,845 if you include the Bulgarian war.
