Recommended Posts

This is a debate to name the current war. A poll has been recently (yesternight) introduced several names to this war. The options of the last poll are as follow:

For 5am of 04/28/09 :)

Karma War: 46.57%

Epic War: 8.57%

Stern-talking-to War: 7.43%

Great War V: 6.86%

Other: 6.29%

War of Retribution: 6.00%

Great War VI: 4.57%

The Apocalypse: 4.29%

FusterCluck: 3.43%

War of the Second Coalition: 2.86%

Hegemony War: 1.71%

NPO-OV War: 1.43%

If you remove the undecided and not serious votes then you're left with:

Karma War: 46.57%

Epic War: 8.57%

Great War V: 6.86%

War of Retribution: 6.00%

Great War VI: 4.57%

War of the Second Coalition: 2.86%

Hegemony War: 1.71%

NPO-OV War: 1.43%

The undecided votes account for:

FusterCluck: 3.43%

The Apocalypse: 4.29%

Other: 6.29%

Stern-talking-to War: 7.43%

Totaling: 21.44% of the vote.

This current war cannot be named after Karma.

Yes: They will win this war. No: They didn't start it.

The same applies to Hegemony... Though, no one's voting for them.

GW:IV and V are also ruled out: If you can't count the number of great wars, leave it at 3.

NPO-OV War: This doesn't describe the conflict. This is the first chapter of a book.

Epic War: No. Epic is something that's awesome, generally described as good. War isn't good. People suffer.

War of the Second Coalition: Boooooooring.

War of Retribution: Depressssssing.

There are new ideas needed. This war has to be named. I don't think any of us want to settle for a mediocre name.

The "Karma War" name isn't sufficient to the amount of loss. 1 billion casualties in four days!

This war started with a little over 2 billion casualties.

We're steadily marching to 4 billion.

The war is expected to last one month.

If so: There will be 6.5 Billion more casualties.

An appropriate name has to be chosen.

Great Wars are over.

World Wars... Maybe.

Total Wars, not yet.

This conflict is massive. It needs a name of a massive scale that emphasizes tragedy on both sides:

Name 1: The Resolution of the Worlds Nuclear Stockpile

Freelfree to add to this. :)

I prefer calling it GWIV personally, and a name for this has to be GENERIC.

World War or Total War or even Great War.

I'm not !@#$@#$ naming it the Resolution of the Worlds Nuclear Stockpile. =_=' That's as bad as the last name. e.e

How many god damn records to we have to beat so that we can get a great war IV. I dont care if you think they are over, calling something the "Bestest War" Kinda sucks. If we were going to end Great Wars after the third one then maybe we shouldnt have picked such a general term!

I'd like to point out that thats going to mean this war will have more than 3 times the total casualties that have ever occured on Bob before it, alliance after alliance on the projected losing side has declared its intent to fight all the way into ZI (or to have its membership fight there while the leadership sits in peace, it depends). At least one has declared it will fight until bill lock forces them to delete their nations and start over.

The Apocolypse War is not a joke suggestion. This thing is so big that it is a miracle of Admin that is hasn't brought down the servers (again).

Karma War is a perfectly suitable name. If you haven't realized, the war isn't named after the Karma coalition, but the idea that NPO is getting what they had coming to them.

So the general idea is that the Hegemony is getting what was coming to them... Okay, if karma is defined as "you get what's coming to you" then it's nothing but a war of destiny. All great powers are destined to fall. There's no karma in politics, there's only mistakes! There are other words you can use do describe this war without glorifying an alliance that forced thousands of its denizens to attack thousands of nations they didn't even know existed until a "target" was placed on them.

And I'm not saying that Hegemony is in any way different. This is a war of 20 or 30 !@#$%^& who are in total control of their alliances. These individuals don't give a !@#$ about the people that provide them their power. The few who agree with this war are the ones who are in position to take over from their former masters positions.

Why not? The WoTC was named after the Coalition?

Now we're talking, this is what it's about: Winning!

Okay, so when any conflict occurs we'll just add a number to a GW. That's as smart as calling this war Karma's.

I strongly believe that the current leaders will force people to fight to ZI and then again once they recover until people decide to leave this game. I just think "The Apocalypse War" title is a little extreme unless the GRL is uncapped.

So because you don't like people voting for some of those you discount them. I voted for STtW and was being completely serious and intend on calling it from now on.

Karma war is dumb. Stupid war name is stupid.

It is the Karma War. For two reasons, the name of the coalition and the 'getting what's coming to you' element. Like the Unjust War, the name works well on two levels, it is short and memorable and it makes sense. The vote clearly shows that almost half of people already call it that and you're not going to get that sort of support for another name.

I'm throwing my support behind "Karma War".

As am I.

Couldn't have put it better myself, Mr. Janova.

Karma War wins.

Roofus,

I disagree with straying from the "GW" series.... the only reason this war is as large as it is, is because of the peacetime that lingered over Bob for so long. That shouldn't be honored.

As for its title: I think the poll speaks for itself. I think "The Karma War" is exceedingly appropriate. I'm sorry you don't like it, but the rest of us do.

False.

Karma is the largest coalition...ever.

The global radiation is as high as it has ever been.

The fall of NPO from its seat of power relates back to the first 3

The Intiative/Continuum factor and now thier final stand.

its a War encompassing most of the large alliances in the cyberverse and over which the question of global hegemony is fought.

Its a nuke fest

Its a great war.

If we follow that logic, we should be looking forward to Great War 15 by 2011.This has been said many times over, but it's not a Great War unless it's fought between NPO and LUE.

Another thread about it? <facepalms>

The war will have two names, one of them already is Karma War, other will be created for the NPO and I'm sure that they will not choose a name ridiculous like: The Resolution of the Worlds Nuclear Stockpile

This war saw the dawn of Karma as the power capable of changing world order. Not wanting war named after Karma is a "political corectness" stunt.

Keep in mind however it doesn't matter what the official name is. Each group will remember this war under a different name. Will see it differently as we all have our own side of the story.

If people want to call it Karma War they will. Regardless of what a politcally correct minority attempt to enforce.
