Alexio, Play Despacito also known as Going Into Vietnam... Again was a conflict between the pirate alliance of Arrgh and several alliances from The Swamp bloc (most prominently The Ampersand, The Federation and The Lost Empire).

Hostilities appear to have started on September 27th, when Arrgh launched several raids against two members of Ampersand's government. Over the course of the following two days, Ampersand responded by declaring 17 wars on Arrgh members that so far had been uninvolved in the attacks on Ampersand government. Arrgh responded to such attacks with counters, something that resulted in further escalation over the following days.

The 3rd of October was the first day where the allies of Ampersand came to their aid, as The Federation declared several wars on Arrgh.

On the 4th of October Arrgh officially recognized hostilities with Ampersand, something that lead both The Federation and The Lost Empire to declare war on Arrgh in response. From that point onwards, several other members of the bloc started declaring wars on Arrgh, while Arrgh expanded its field of "retribution" operations.

By October 6th over 300 individual wars had been reached. 1000 wars had been crossed by 25th October.

On 28th October, it was observed that Alexio, leader of The Ampersand, had sold down his infrastructure to 950 in each city, fulfilling one of the key terms offered by Arrgh for peace.

The war got somewhat disturbed on the 31st of October, with the outbreak of Duck Hunt, where Swamp bloc directly took part from the outbreak of the war. Arrgh increased the number of wars on alliances not part of Swamp, likely taking advantage of the global to raid both sides in the conflict.

Alexio, Play Despacito went on despite this, Arrgh turning down any offers of a white peace.

The war was met by another disturbance on the 23rd of November, with Arrgh joining the war Alanfall, as paid mercenaries, this war only lasted a week however, with peace in that war being achieved on the 30th of November.

On the 7th of December, Swamp ejected The Fighting Pacifists and The Immortals from their ranks. This lead to both alliances peacefully withdrawing from the war.

The fighting was disturbed once more on the 20th of December 2020, when Arrgh went to war with Pantheon in the conflict known as Party in the Pantheon, in part of Arrgh's birthday celebration. This war lasted for 10 days, ending on the 30th of December.

The war between Swamp and Arrgh had nearly gone cold at this point, with very few wars being declared between both sides. Conflict sparked again on the 10th of February, when Arrgh launched a new offensive. This would last for another 15 days before coming to a close when a white peace was declared between the two parties, marked by a forum post posted by Swamp.

With the war over, conflicts between Arrgh and Swamp returned to their pre-war status.
