World War VI
World War VI began on May 25th, 2013 with Slovenia, a member of TWO, declaring war on Switzerland, a member of CoT . These two alliances are the main belligerents, with many small alliances taking sides.
After the fall of EDEN, tensions rose between CoT and TWO, alliances that originally had been allied against EDEN. Without a common enemy, and with former EDEN members seeking new allies, war became inevitable. The acceptance of the eUSA into CoT proved to be the beginning of the end for the CoTWO alliance, as the US continued to be hostile towards TWO nations and was regarded by Serbia as their number 1 foe. The movement of Romania into TWO's sphere of influence provoked anger from the Bulgarians, as well as internal strife in several TWO countries, in particular Spain, the UK, and Hungary. Following that, Romania settled quite handily into the TWO military structure. To the north, Lithuania, a member of CoT, left the alliance and joined ACT.
The smaller alliances also quickly chose sides in the conflict. Asgard, an alliance which had been engaged in a war with the now defunct Alliance of Baltic Counties, which merged into ACT, sided with CoT. NaN refused to pick a side despite being frequently occupied by CoT nations leading to Australia leaving the alliance and joining ACT.
The war initiated in Europe, but has continued to spread to North and South America, eventually reaching a global scale.
1. Breakup of EDEN: Prior to WW6, there was an unnamed, worldwide conflict against EDEN launched by TWO and CoT, who had allied against a common enemy. After about a year of co-operation, EDEN finally dissolved as a result of disunity between members, an ineffective HQ, and an almost un-interrupted string of defeats by CoTWO. Almost immediately, TWO and CoT became more distant, as each alliance absorbed EDEN and EDEN supporting countries into their damage pool. It became inevitable that a war would occur, as there has never been a time where the two biggest alliances and their client alliances did not go to war eventually. A cold war was brewing.
2. USA-AIM: What would prove to be one of the biggest causes of the war was initially a celebration of EDEN. After EDEN formally dissolved, pro-EDEN countries supported RWs in Polish and Spanish territories. Out of this, the USA-AIM project was conceived. The goal was to support RWs in Spanish, Serbian and Polish regions, disrupting trade and making TWO waste damage. This situation became a major annoyance for the major powers of TWO.
3. AMP PTO: For several months prior, the US had been at risk of a PTO by the AFA. Through controlled elections, the threat was contained for many months, and indeed, appeared to be winding down somewhat. However, in the May Congress elections, the leader of the AMP revealed himself to be a Serbian sleeper agent who rose up through the ranks of the AMP over several months. Although the anti-PTOers were able to keep the AMP and AFA from getting too many congressmen, the situation resulted in much anger towards TWO, and in particular Serbia. In response, a NE was launched by eUS congressmen at Serbia, starting the war.
4. Acceptance of the USA into CoT: The United States was seen as the long term enemy of Serbia and TWO. Their acceptance into Circle of Trust was seen by the entire alliance as a betrayal of the co-operation and the opening moves in the conflict that would soon erupt across the world.
Theatres of Operation
The war would cross continental borders, first beginning in Europe, but shortly thereafter would spread to the Americas and Asia.
The war began in Europe with Slovenia attacking Switzerland. Italy, a neutral country took advantage of the situation and started Resistance Wars against Slovenian occupied territory. Seeing the opportunity, CoT quickly backed Italy, hoping to take pressure off of Switzerland. With tensions between TWO and CoT already high, the war was about to begin.
Northern - Eastern Europe
With the war breaking out in the west, TWO and CoT members of Eastern Europe quickly became involved. Hungary declared war on Russia. Seeking to aid their TWO allies, Lithuania and Latvia declared war on Russia as well. Sensing that their allies needed help Germany became involved, declaring war on Lithuania. In response to this the United Kingdom declared war on Germany leading a full-scale invasion of the nation. A full out war was beginning to break out in Europe.
Before the war officially began, Lithuania alongside Latvia and Estonia (formerly known as ABC) launched attacks on Asgard members Sweden and Finland on multiple occasions. In retaliation Sweden declared war on Lithuania to help Russia (Sweden and Norway had rental agreements on core Swedish and Norwegian regions prior the war)
Greece, now Pro-TWO since leaving EDEN established dominance over Macedonian and Bulgarian regions, potentially ending the never-ending Balkan wars. Romania, also Pro-TWO proposed an airstrike on Mexico, seeking to aid their allies in South America and to set up for a potential four way invasion of the USA. (Hungary from Russia, Serbia/Poland/Spain from Europe/Canada and Romania from Mexico.) In a worldwide resistance campaign, France, Italy, Croatia, USA, and Bosnia and Herzegovina started resistance wars in Serbian-occupied Aquitaine, Basilicata, Federation of BiH,North Dalmatia, and Louisiana, freeing all regions. This would set the stage for the CoT invasion of Serbia.
East and Southeast Asia
China and Indonesia have training war. China has not aligned with either CoT or TWO and declared neutrality.
Before the war Republic of China (Taiwan) (then EDEN member) had wars with South Korea and Japan during late 2012 and early 2013. Due to these wars, Taiwan sided with TWO. Shortly after their part in the TWO invasion of North America, Thailand conquered Singapore and a Malaysian territory. On July 21, 2013, Day 2,070, Australia attacked Queensland, Indonesia, therefore beginning the TWO invasion of Indonesia alongside an Airstrike launched by the United Kingdom. Pakistan launched an Airstrike and conquered Sabah after Malay resistance liberated it from the United Kingdom. Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) launched an Airstrike and successfully conquered New Zealand (part of TWO invasion of Indonesia) in order to escape the Balkans trap. On October 1, 2013, Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) declared Argentina a Natural enemy, and begins the Macedonia-Argentina War ending with the total wipe of Macedonia again.
CoT members Bulgaria and Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), who had moved their capitals to the Middle East due to the seeking of bigger bonuses, experienced attacks by Turkey. Turkey attacked Macedonia through Iran and the United Arab Emirates, who were also at war with Macedonia prior the war. Meanwhile, Indonesia's airstrike in Iran failed due to TWO's support in the battle. A few weeks later, Greece declared a Natural enemy on Bulgaria, and conquered its' Egyptian territories. After Chile Airstriked Varna, Bulgaria freed Ruse and Burgas via Resistance Wars. However, Turkey, once again, declared war on Bulgaria, and conquering Burgas.
India had been occupied by Croatia for about 1 year by September 2013. Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina had also been occupying India to escape from Serbia in Europe. However, India is a pro-CoT nation. India then asks Bosnia to let go of some Indian regions so India can get congress for the month. Bosnia refuses. Because of this, India retaliated against Bosnia, eventually wiping Bosnia out of India. In an instant, India switched from pro-CoT to pro-TWO.
USA decided to defend its ally and declared war on Serbia in response to the official declaration of the World War by Slovenia against Switzerland. Serbia was defeated in the first Serbian-American War, and was pushed back to Europe.
Colombia was attacked by Mexico since the war began.In retaliation, Republic of China (Taiwan), Thailand joined in the counter-attack against Mexico and occupied Mexico from day 2040 of the New World.
As TWO invaded North America via 7 nations - United Kingdom, Serbia, Poland, Hungary, Thailand, Taiwan and Montenegro, resistance wars would free a region, but usually in a day, Serbia, Poland, or Hungary would conquer that region. After the final USA region, New Hampshire was conquered by Poland on the 14th July 2013, the whole continent was conquered by TWO. However, the wipe wouldn't last long, as although Mexico was occupied by Thailand, Taiwan, and Columbia, the Mexicans liberated the Gulf Coast, and rid Thailand from North America. Then, a liberation campaign sprung up in the USA, freeing Texas for 2 days. However, in a nutshell, the president Paul Proteus decided to try and free Mexico in a failed operation; while at that time, Serbia re-conquered Texas. However, the USA helped pour damage in Louisiana, as they freed it. Then, another liberation campaign sprung up in Texas, as people also poured damage.
A few days later, Mexico freed Baja and made North America with 3 regions not occupied by TWO (Louisiana, Texas, and Baja); however, the (RoC) Taiwan reconquered Baja, while Serbia regained their conquered territories and in a instant, North America was in the hands of TWO.
On day 2157, the USA, Spain, and Poland signed an agreement ending the spoland occupation of the USA. This agreement restored the regions of the USA minus a buffer zone along the Atlantic coast of the US. The treaty went into effect on day 2158, with the cessation of the first American region by Poland. The treaty effectively ended official hostilities between the United States and TWO.
A lot of wars were going on in South America. First, Argentina and Chile dueled each other to their capitals; it was so big, some fighting even spread into Australia and South Africa. Then, Argentina and Uruguay started a joint campaign to conquer Brazil by having Argentina go up into the Amazonian regions, while Uruguay invaded Brazil's colonies in South Africa. It resulted in a 5-day wipe of Brazil. Also, Paraguay started a invasion of Bolivia, after hostile actions in-game. On July 17th, Mexico and Peru started a joint campaign to cut off Columbia from it's capital. The Mexicans attacked Caribe e Insular from Southeast of Mexico, and succeeded, while on the other hand, Peru's attack on Amazonica failed, and got attacked. Meanwhile, Mexico conquered Andina, before being repelled from Amazonica. On the same day, Chile Airstriked Varna, which was occupied by Romania.
Dissolution of Circle of Trust
On Day 2175 Chile formally left Circle of Trust quickly followed by the official dissolution of the alliance as every nation voted to end the alliance admitting defeat to TWO.
