Casualties and losses
Heavy Medium

Oktoberfest, also known as the Covenant Power War, began on the 15th of October 2015, just before server update, when UPN, BoC, and DEIC declared war on tS, TEst, and SK. This was followed by a DoW on BoC by Mensa HQ in defense of Seven Kingdoms and the Syndicate. Peace has since been made, with The Syndicate and its allies coming on top.

Timeline

War progression

UPN, BoC, and DEIC declared war on tS, TEst, and SK. The war seemed to be at a tie at this point, with both sides taking heavy hits. Within a day, Mensa declared war on BoC. The next day, EoS declared war on SK, and TKP declared on DEIC. The Obsidian Order, consisting of BK, TKR, and InGen, all declared on DEIC. DEIC began taking heavy hits, and eventually dropped from rank 3, to 19.

orders of battle

More and more allies coming in, including The Coalition, Arrgh!, and Alpha. Utopia began fighting an undeclared war against The Covenant starting on the 19th. In the next few days, VE declared war on Arrgh!, and The Obsidian Order declared war on BoC. The Covenant began taking heavy hits, and it became obvious they were losing the war. Being the last one to join in, Utopia officially declared war on UPN and BoC after fighting unofficially.

EoS then began attacking Utopia. BoC decided to declare peace, and did so on the 23rd. UPN and DEIC kept fighting until the 7th, when they too declared peace. The Covenant had dropped much in score, with tS and its allies claiming an obvious victory. Subsequently, UPN's protectorate bloc disbanded during the war, after its members were irritated about attacks against them.
