Thanks a ton Gopher, it'll be good to have these stats to compare with the end of the war.

The official date is the 17th of July. It was announced on their boards to all diplomats back on the 7th. :(


Heh, after I signed in to make that post I noticed the sigs saying the 17th. Cheers though.

Looks like the p's will only be about a point apart.

Yeah 17th is the official, we'll probably OWF something around then. Obviously the migration to the New Polar Order is well underway so it's no secret, as Ava says we're cracking open a few nuka-beers right now in the diplomat access zone of the forums so feel free to drop by if your interested and we'll shout you a cold one before we lock down the bunker doors for good!

The 0.3 should still be included tomorrow, I've no idea where we are going to get enough to match that from.

yeah but isn't there a 0.25 cap in this game? therefore effectively tomorrow's growth won't count for us.

Not that it really matters...IRON still reached the final whilst being unaware it was playing.

Come now Samus :P Random member nothing, take a look at his awards tab :P :P :P

 

Secondly, at least one Councillor posted therein :P

 

Thirdly, its in the general spam, you can hardly give it more creed than that :P :P :P

 

But even that aside, the point stands, the Republic was in fact aware of it.

Aware or not, IRON gave us a decent game. First real come from behind win for us, and certainly unexpected/miraculous.. but would probably say the VE or Pacifica game were more tense just because of how aware both alliances were of its closeness.

 

Definitely wasn't the easy route to the finals I thought it might have been, but sometimes things work out.

 

Regardless

The level of awareness and interest among general members before the finals wasn't really there, people took alot more interest when we found ourselves in finals. The thread you refer to brought in the ~dozen or so usual suspects looking to extract fun out of an OWF event. As you're well aware our members mostly don't really care on what happens on these boards.

Match would have been a lot more interesting but got bit lucked out on the random timings of when the scores are freezed, but that's part and parcel of it.

Nonetheless, fun was had :D and WC and our opponents delivered on that. Edited by shahenshah

I used the same hyperbole, if you will, that icewolf did when he said that IRON was unaware of this. Which clearly wasn't the case. So if you have a problem with it, take it up with him, mkay :P

 

Apart from that ... jeez Shah >.<

Yeah and a 300k nation from another alliance. 

1) You did the same thing with the Sparta ghost, it isn't our fault we could play dirty better. The principles the same.

2) With or without TBR's involvement we still gained .3 score for the day which was way over the cap. TBR's involvement (much appreciated <3), didn't change anything because we were already capped before he joined. 

3) Sadly but fortunately for your side, our stats updated way prematurely than your own, had we updated at the same time, it would have been impossible for you to win

 

Good game MI6

 

We're coming for that trophy in 4 years :P

The World Task Force is our third-placed alliance, squeaking by the New Pacific Order by grabbing that extra little bit of score to earn them that fourth goal.  This is the first time they've ever reached the podium in a Survivor series.

 

Pacifica, for their part, absolutely clobbered their way through the group stage and had sizable victories until the semi-finals, when they were defeated by the slimmest of margins.

 

As fact would have it, these two alliances are also third and fourth place in the Sanction Race.

Congratulations to the Independent Republic of Orange Nations for an incredibly well-fought tournament, having won every game up until the final, and outscoring their opponents 23-9 during that timeframe.  This is their fifth podium appearance, having won once before and earning the bronze on three separate occasions.

 

Finally, to MI6, who adopted this tournament as their own right from the very beginning, and throwing their full weight behind it every step of the way.  They began their run all the way back in the first round of qualifying, overcoming The Sandstorm Confederacy and then NADC to enter into the competition, before finishing ahead of FAN, Polar, and NG in the group of death.  Successive two-goal victories over TPF and Viridia brought them to the semi-finals, which saw them emerge ahead of Pacifica in a nail-biting thriller.  Down 2-0 at halftime in the final, they stormed back early in the second half to grab hold of a victory that IRON couldn't overcome. Along the way, they've jumped by seven spots in the overall rankings, adding 17 new nations and nearly 30% in overall score.
 

 

$%&@ it, we're done, MI6 wins.
