Amid the tense stalemate of NPO's Last Time, diplomacy continued and brought forth a new political bloc consisting of The Commonwealth, The Manhattan Cartel (TMC), Weebunism, North Point (NP), Demacia, and IronFront (IF). While this bloc, internally dubbed F1, coalesced, a former governmental member of The Manhattan Cartel leaked vital intelligence which included the API keys and bank info of TMC government. TMC hit MinesomeMC's micro alliance, the Galactic Empire (tGE), in retaliation. As tGE was a protectorate of Brotherhood of the Clouds (BoC), TMC and NP executed a preemptive strike on BoC in a possible attempt to intimidate BoC. However, BoC's possession of a Mutual Defense Pact with Camelot ensured that they would be no easy targets.
The war would eventually end after the NPO scandal. This included the use of Guinea Pig Whaling Corp as a tax farm. The farm alliance was brought in using stolen material in exchange for ensuring the members logged in and made tax money. Alex deemed this as bannable and the whole alliance was removed.
New Pacific Order and several allies including Black Knights and Guardians of the Galaxy would disband. Alliances such as Camelot, Brotherhood of the Clouds, Golden Phoenix Coalition, and United Socialist Nations would white peace.
The Galactic Empire Attacked, Brotherhood of the Clouds Counterattacks
North Point and ally The Manhattan Cartel launched several attacks on members of the micro alliance called "The Galactic Empire", actions later revealed to be in retaliation for leaked documents performed by the then-leader MinesomeMC of tGE which revealed API keys and bank info of TMC government. The intelligence data, in the form of spreadsheets, were obtained by MinesomeMC when his alliance Golden Phoenix Coalition merged with TMC. MinesomeMC claimed that he leaked the data in retaliation for the TMC's breaches of the merger agreement between them and GPC.
Now a member of North Point, BoC's former leader, Dusty, advised that counterattacks were incoming against NP and TMC, so NP launched preemptive strikes against BoC.
Camelot and Bloc Involvement
After the activation of BoC's MDP, Camelot 2IC Epimetheus created a satellite alliance named Team RWBY, which promptly launched counterattacks against NP, followed by the remainder of Camelot launching attacks against NP.
Camelot allies Black Knights and Guardians of the Galaxy also launched attacks against NP and TMC, introduced by technicalities of a treaty signed during NPO's Last Time.
Opus Dei Involvement
Under the cover of darkness, Opus Dei launched a surprise attack on North Point, Weebunism, The Madhatten Cartel, and Iron Front. The GOONS El Presidente la Langosta has yet to make an official statement on the matter. Members of GOONS, when asked, only referred to matters as "routine exercises" and "daily operations". Over two hundred wars were declared in under 3 hours by GOONS, with even more from the remainder of Opus Dei.
Diplomatic talks were underway on the evening of January 10th between GOONS leadership and the Immortals with the aim of deescalating the conflict. These talks broke down when Dr. James Wilson of Immortals stated that they would be taking up arms against GOONS over their attacks on The Manhattan Cartel. The following morning on January 11th, GOONS launched a pre-emptive strike against Immortals, declaring 100 wars at around 12 PM EST.
On 12 January 2020, The Regiment declared war on GOONS, an action intended as push back against the well-known reporter, w00tles, a prominent member of GOONS with a history of correctly identifying infractions and following proper procedure. With major players from multiple blocs becoming involved, the treaty cascade sparked by the war transformed it from a petty skirmish to the most recent Great War.
On 14 January 2020, Interstellar surrendered to the forces of Opus Dei, a decision deemed highly controversial by their former coalition allies. The poor reception of the announcement led to a small amount of ill will being fostered between allies. Within a matter of days, the Immortals canceled their protectorate agreement with Interstellar and Interstellar disbanded.
On 18 January 2020, GOONS Foreign Minister, JT Jag, finalized a peace agreement between "Schrutesphere" and Opus Dei, ending hostilities between the two groups and establishing a NAP between two of the largest blocs in the conflict. This was the result of leaked logs indicating F1 was manipulating Scrutesphere, Fark, Pantheon, and The Immortals and intended to cancel their treaties post-war. The Federation eventually accepted peace over the same logs, three days later.
On February 2nd, the alliance Golden Phoenix Coalition, which had prior merged into The Manhattan Cartel, declared that it has officially divorced itself from TMC. The alliance shortly after declared a state of war between North Point, TMC, and their affiliates. This would be the final alliance involved. Both the first and last alliance to join the conflict would be operated by MinesomeMC.
On February 5, Alex made an announcement that shocked Orbis, releasing a report on NPO and GPWC. GPWC was part of a plot where 500 players were enticed to join as farm accounts in exchange for a scanlation of a Manwha. In doing so, NPO was able to take 92 billion over the course of 3 months, which Alex has deemed to have an unfair impact on the game. Therefore, he banned Anna(leader of GPWC), Roquentin(leader of NPO), Frawley, Kylie, Euphe, Keshav, Yuri, Chi, Edward, Akiluu, and Daniel Storm. Alex also disbanded GPWC. In the ensuing hours, Leo issued a statement about the disbandment of BK, GOONS issued EXCOM, and then rebranded to a neutral alliance named Green Protection Agency, GoG disbanded, Acadia disbanded, and the Coalition A has declared victory.
