Events Leading To War[edit | edit source]

Jack8377 and Doland were accused of spying on Valhalla for The Legion. The Legion responded to the accusations and evidences with IRC logs of a pre-accusation conversation in which Legion leadership condemned and ejected Doland from the Legion upon finding out his activities. The negative public response to the logs, which seemed strangely well-worded, led to declarations of war from Valhalla and her allies.

Sides Align[edit | edit source]

Prior to the August 6 update, Valhalla declared war, followed quickly by GOONS, \m/, TPF and Golden Sabres. Genmay declared war shortly after update, but was not assigned targets and therefore its declaration can be considered more of a statement of support than an intention to actively engage in hostilities.

Long-time Legion ally, The Orange Defense Network, declared neutrality in the conflict that same night, citing Legion's request that ODN save itself from destruction on Legion's behalf. Additionally, ODN's conflicting MDP with GOONS provided ample legal precedent for its neutrality.

Midday on August 6, GMDG announced its intention to "go down swinging" and declared war on The Initiative. The GMDG's original declaration made no mention of The Legion in either the positive nor the negative. Imperial Gashira asserts that he had made a mistake while typing and had to edit the DoW quick before the thread got too many hits. Gashira, indulging many complaints about the DoW, wrote a revised DoW, which explained the GMDG's position more clearly. Though the Global Order of Darkness did not post an official declaration, GOD members proceeded to attack GMDG members. NATO also declared war on the GMDG in the GMDG's DoW thread.

On 7 August, the Tactical Alliance Command, a small alliance, and the Avenguard Crusade made an official declaration of war on GMDG. The Multicolored Cross-X Alliance also made an official declaration of war on Legion.

Peace Terms[edit | edit source]

Between Legion & Valhalla[edit | edit source]

  1. Legion will pay reparations to Valhalla in the amount of $40 million.
  2. The Legion will assist Valhalla in getting a Senate seat in every Purple Team senate election.
  3. The Legion apologizes for its government accepting information from Jack8377 over a three-week period, and for Doland's attempts to spy on Valhalla. We should have brought it to Valhalla’s attention as soon as we (the government) knew about it, and we didn’t. Sorry about that.
  4. There shall exist between the Legion and Valhalla a NAP for 1 month. After that time, the NAP will be subject to extension pending the compliance with these terms and membership behavior.

Also, in the same post:

As an additional note, I personally apologize for twice delaying the response for our surrender. In my defense, the first was to make sure the vote passed, and the second was because Im bad at math. The Legion Cabinet also wishes to apologize for misleading people about Doland. While the logs weren't faked or staged, they were used to in an attempt to cover up that we knew that he was spying so he'd take the fall for us.

—Lord Swampy, Legion Prime Minister

Between Legion & Initiative alliances[edit | edit source]

  1. Effective immediately, all signatory alliance nations shall offer peace or accept any peace offers delivered.
  2. A state of general peace shall be recognized amongst the signatory alliances.

  4. The signatory alliances agree to co-operate to help the Legion achieve a greater peace with all other parties.
  5. Aggressive declarations of war by the Legion shall immediately render this document null and void.
