    Week 2...I didn't do Power Rankings after Week 1 because I got caught in work, and because all but ONE game saw my favorite (by ranking) win. So, let's say I got the preseason PR decently right. But this week, we saw some carnage in the middle for sure, and even some of the big boys weren't immune to danger. Biggest surprise for me? 0-2 Jags and Washington Football Team. Biggest OTHER surprise? Cincinnati, New Orleans, and Atlanta being 2-0. Well done. Some separation games coming up in the next two weeks, though. We'll see...who ya got? Remember, if you don't like where you are in these rankings...play better! Detroit Lions Kansas City Chiefs Green Bay Packers Until further notice, these are your presumed Teams To Beat. They have all looked completely a class above their opponents, even consider KC came from behind at Miami. Detroit and Green Bay playing each other twice a year is brutal and pure entertainment for neutrals, and I can’t wait for both games. Would the Lions have felt better about their secondary had they landed Fred Fain? Maybe, but who’s really in the right to complain as the defending champs. Jason Johnson is only adding to his legendary status each week, and appears to be a ripening fine wine. Buffalo Bills Baltimore Ravens Tennessee Titans Philadelphia Eagles New Orleans Saints Atanta Falcons Indianapolis Colts I don’t even think the FOs of these teams figured they would be ahead of teams like Jacksonville and Las Vegas at this point in the season, but here we are. Baltimore is giving everyone nightmares with the defensive front and no slow down from Marcus Black. The Bills just put an absolutely whooping on Pittsburgh (what the hell, PIT?). The Titans looked really good in a narrow loss at KC (that, in some ways, felt inevitable, but good on TEN for making it really competitive). Philly is doing Philly Things, but week 1 was a little suspect, then followed a very solid win in Miami, where the run game O was good, and run game D was great. The Saints have found the Paul Davenport Magic Elixir on the way to a very surprising 2-0. And the Falcons (defense) and Colts (offense) have one of the top units in the League on either side of the ball, each with a slightly unsung hero coming to the fore: Sean Waller for the Colts, Kaz Hadley for the Falcons. All in all, really impressive start for this group that is, quite obviously to me, a cut BELOW the top trio. Pittsburgh Steelers San Francisco 49ers Rollercoaster teams so far, really. Steelers looked set to breakout (finally) in week 1, only to throw up a total stink bomb in Buffalo. The Niners looked anemic and porous against Seattle in week 1, total boot-kickers in week 2. I think both squads have the talent and coaching to contend, but they need to find consistency quickly to do so, as both have surprising new division upstarts to contend with. Jacksonville Jaguars Miami Dolphins Washington Football Team Las Vegas Raiders I ain’t saying anything, I’m just saying. 2-0 is wholly unacceptable for these franchises, and the FOs must know it. I still expect at least 2 of these teams to make the playoffs, but 0-3 is a way big hole to dig out of…who gets a win this week? (pst…probably all of them) Cincinnati Bengals New York Jets Chicago Bears Dallas Cowboys I was tempted to tier the next four together with this four, since all are 1-1 and show some promise. Cincy has shown a LOT against poor-ish competition through two weeks, so the hesitation to keep them down here is real. Maybe I was totally wrong about the Joel King era in Cincy…dude has played really well so far. The Jets got a get-right win against the Chargers, which had to feel good, and prove that they might have a future this season after all. Ditto Chicago, who needs Good MoFo to step up like he did against the Cardinals every game. Dallas is just such an enigma: maybe it is because Serwendel is the Silent Tom Landry…maybe it’s because the focus of the offense shifts week to week. I don’t know exactly what to make of these teams through 2 weeks, but I think it is clear that each needs to do handful of things better in order to stay at or near .500…or better. Los Angeles Rams Minnesota Vikings Houston Texans Seattle Seahawks Really, a lot of the above could be said about these teams as well, but at least we can say that they have looked pretty good, for a game. The Rams played well in week 1, then ran into a diverse and talented team in the Packers…no shame there, but the 28-16 pounding at home is not ideal. Minnesota looked really lost in week 1, but righted the ship in week 2 against an equally confounding Seahawks team. Good for the Vikes for figuring it out. Houston went into the Colts TNF game with good spirits after a solid week 1, but got humbled a bit by bad tackling and less-than-efficient passing offense. Seattle ran all over SF in the week 1, then was completely cashed in against the Vikings menacing 3-4 front. Only reason these teams are below #17-20 is strength of competition, I think. All have an ASPECT of “What It Takes.” Los Angele Chargers New England Patriots Cleveland Browns Again, ditto, mostly, for this trio. Each played one solid game, luckily it came against a team that is significantly worse than they are. The Chargers lead the group because they played well on the road in New York despite the loss. Chargers clearly are better this season than last, but still feel 2 oz behind their division mates (Broncos not included) and solidly behind the 2nd tier in the VERY tough AFC. Patriots got the gift of two TMac INTs right away in their battle against Denver, but showed that a solid-if-not-great run game plus Good Josh Beckett can be enough at home against mediocre to poor teams. Good for them. The Browns beat the Bucs…’nuf said. Carolina Panthers Denver Broncos Arizona Cardinals New York Giants Tampa Bay Buccaneers Here we roll. Did anyone expect the Panthers to be here, with the GOAT still aboard? Not me. But ’tis true. Denver just made a splash trade in an effort to stay relevant, we’ll see where that leads. Arizona is improving, kind of, but my man Trevon needs some help, and with a quickness. The Giants appear to have not done a thing since the 2022 season, and the Bucs are about to be the worst team in the history of the NFLHC…and that’s COUNTING last year’s Browns. OOF, all around.

    @boombobs I've talked it over with other commissioners and determined this is either a troll account or alt. When asked what you meant by, "I decided to play this again" if you've never been here before, you never answered seriously. You also don't know the name of your own university apparently. You are free to apply to another conference. May God have mercy on your soul.

    Last week had some STATEMENT games. TCU-USC? Both quarterbacks threw four touchdowns, but the difference is that Riley Sharp who threw more of them to his own team than Taylor Cook did. Miami (FL)-Oregon? A balanced attack in rainy Eugene forced the #MiamiIsBack train to take a detour. Cal-Washington? The Golden Bears served notice that they're coming for the North by knocking off last year's champ. So how did the voters stack up the resumes of the Conference of Champions? Let's find out! Remember: Since no one can make you feel a certain way except for you, if you don't like these rankings it's your fault. Pac-12 Power Rankings after Week 2 Rank (Poll Pts.) Team (First Place Votes) Record (Conf. Record) Streak Change from Last Week 1 (116) USC Trojans (6) 1-1 (0-0) W1 +1 2 (110) UCLA Bruins (4) 3-0 (0-0) W3 -1 3 (101) Oregon Ducks 1-1 (0-0) W1 - 4 (93) California Golden Bears 2-0 (1-0) W2 - 5 (75) Washington Huskies 1-2 (0-1) L1 - 6 (73) Arizona State Sun Devils 1-1 (1-0) W1 +3 7 (51) Arizona Wildcats 1-2 (0-0) W1 - 8 (48) Washington State Cougars 0-2 (0-1) L2 -2 9 (44) Utah Utes 1-1 (0-0) L1 -1 10 (36) Stanford Cardinal 1-1 (0-0) W1 +1 11 (22) Oregon State Beavers 1-1 (0-0) L1 -1 12 (11) Colorado Buffaloes 0-2 (0-0) L2 - Number of voters: 10 12 points awarded for first, 11 for second, etc. The big takeaway here for the week is Quality over Quantity. As in, USC's Quality win (and #QUALITYLOSS to LSU) outweighs the Bruins' undefeated record against Okie Light and a pair of tune-ups in the voters' minds. But as you can see from the point differential, it wasn't that cut and dried. Oregon and Cal are pretty well entrenched at 3 and 4, and that week 11 matchup in Autzen sure seems like it will determine the North. Despite a losing record the Huskies check in at 5, and barely ahead of the Sun Devils. There's quite a bit of separation between these two teams and the ones above AND below them, which makes you think they're currently considered the "best of a bunch of whelming teams." Arizona's win over Toledo doesn't mean as much as it would have three years ago, but it was enough to have them leading the rest. Coachless Stanford showed they still have a pulse (and gained a spot) by beating Northwestern. Coachless Colorado, on the other hand, not so much. This week's games: (* denotes non-conference) (0-1) at (1-1) (Big XII/Pac-12 Challenge)* (1-1) at (1-1) (1-1) at (0-2)* (2-0) at (2-0)* (1-2) at (1-1) (0-1) at (0-1)* (3-0) at (1-1) BYE: (1-2), (1-1) The P12 Network's Pick to Click? UCLA at Utah. Last year's matchup between these two teams was a rowdy and entertaining game that required a fourth-quarter comeback to give the Bruins the 31-28 win. It certainly gave a young Utes squad the confidence that they can go with virtually anybody in the conference. This year promises to be more of the same; there are enough question marks in both secondaries that we'd feel comfortable taking the Over in this game, whatever it is. (Please gamble responsibly.)

    Premier League Two horse race at the top. The Sunday League Ballers and New Port County sit atop the board after half a season, but there's more depth to the division than the Championship. Both teams have a bunch of notable transfers, specifically Newport who welcomed 7 transfers this year, including 4 forwards. Championship As you can see, the Championship is basically three teams running roughshot over the rest. West Spam is relying heavily on transfers with 5 very talented players, the Garrys have signed 10 transfers, and FCC brought on a player at every level but still relies heavily on genned talent. Quite a shame there isn't a third place promotion match, or one of these teams would destroy whoever they played. Here are the top 5 managers according to the sim (viewable on every team's page): 1. @Rome (FC Cincinnati, Championship) 2. @caesari (Newport County, Premier) 3. @Kirby (West Spam United, Championship) 4. @TazerMan (Nice Garrys, Championship) 5. @Suffocation (Sunday League Ballers, Premier) Is it ANY surprise that my two franchise mates are up there with me? I'm just glad @DangerZoneh didn't play. Gave me PTSD last time.

    2024 Week 2 ACC Power Rankings 1. #4 Clemson (3-0) Last Week Rank: 1 (-) Week 2 Result: 41-14 win over Delaware Clemson continues their reign at number one in my power rankings. It's been fairly easy going for Clemson so far this season, their most difficult stretch of games is in the horizon kicking off after this coming week's game against Syracuse. Syracuse has been playing their ranked opponents extremely close and Clemson does have to travel to the Carrier Dome. That being said, I don't see a Clemson loss on the table until the following week against Louisville and even then Clemson have to be favored. #Demarion4Heisman 2. #6 Duke (2-0) Last Week Rank: 2 (-) Week 2 Result: 34-28 win over Maryland The second episode of the Rasheed Bullock Show may not have been as consistently good as the debut but was solid nonetheless. Duke had quite the challenge at hand going on the road to Maryland and asking Bullock to throw at Isaiah Simpkins, but Duke and Bullock passed the test. They will soon face another difficult opponent as they take on a talented South Carolina roster in Columbia next week. 3. #13 Miami (2-1) Last Week Rank: 3 (-) Week 2 Result: 24-27 loss to #21 Oregon If you're a playoff competitor and you have to drop a game you want it to be early. Miami fans will be hoping their loss to Oregon was just a small bump on the road to the CFB Playoff, but this game definitely illuminated concerns with Miami. Logan Wilson and Ethan Green will have to play at a better level if Miami is to stay competitive in the ACC. Their defense can only carry them so far. 4. #21 Virginia (2-0) Last Week Rank: 4 (-) Week 2 Result: 49-10 win over Southern Miss Virginia fell one rank in the coaches poll this week for reasons that don't make sense to me. Jeremy Ellington is a damn good QB and Warwick Joyner and Bucky Drake are one of the best CB tandems in all of college football. Virginia's schedule for the next few weeks is incredibly soft but it ends with a brutal slate of conference games. Will Virginia be able to keep up their success when they get there? 5. Louisville (1-0) Last Week Rank: 5 (-) Week 2 Result: Bye Louisville is one of the ACC teams we know the least about at this point in the season as they have only played one game so far, a close win over Tulsa. Mario Stewart III impressed in their first game and Louisville looks like they will have a balanced offensive attack that they were unable to put on the field last year. Their big test will come against Clemson in Week 4. Only then will we start to know just how good Louisville can be this year. 6. Pittsburgh (1-1) Last Week Rank: 6 (-) Week 2 Result: 24-10 win over UNC The Pittsburgh hype train was derailed following their Week 0 loss to Penn State but they got back on track this week as they had complete control of their game against North Carolina. Messiah Winston and Kareem Jackson played more on par with their preseason expectations. Pittsburgh has a brutal schedule ahead of them and will need to see more performances from Winston and Jackson like last week if they want to make noise in the ACC this year. 7. Georgia Tech (1-0) Last Week Rank: 7 (-) Week 2 Result: Bye Georgia Tech holds their place in the power rankings this week as I'm a little more impressed with their win over Vandy than FSU's win over Iowa. Jacob Ramsey played well in Week 1 but faces some very good opponents in the weeks to come. Ramsey will have to keep his volume up and his turnovers down for the Yellow Jackets to remain competitive. I think he can get it done, but time will tell. 8. Florida State (2-0) Last Week Rank: 8 (-) Week 2 Result: 38-31 win over Iowa Florida State's ground game is second to only Clemson in the conference but their passing attack leaves so much to be desired. Brett England is yet to cost the Seminoles a game, but I'll be damned if he hasn't been trying. England and Snyder seem to be duking it out for most disappointing QB in the conference, but at least England can run. England has been averaging nearly 30 attempts a game and I don't see continued success if England continues to throw at that rate. 9. Virginia Tech (1-1) Last Week Rank: 10 (+1) Week 2 Result: 37-31 win over Western Michigan What a win for the Hokies last week! A double OT thriller propelled Virginia Tech over a talented Western Michigan squad as the Hokies showed off their ability to move the ball on the ground. The two-man backfield of Swain and Ross could not be contained, and with new starting QB Kacey Tucker having wheels of his own defenses will have their hands full trying to stop this rushing attack. 10. Boston College (2-1) Last Week Rank: 9 (-1) Week 2 Result: 38-7 win over UC Davis Boston College looked good this week but their wins haven't exactly been against the highest caliber teams as they've taken down UConn and now UC Davis. Kayshon Rhodes will need to show he has the ability to perform against FBS competition at the same level he did last week for me to have faith in this Boston College side. Rhodes will get the chance to prove himself this week as the Eagles take on Rutgers at home. 11. North Carolina (0-2) Last Week Rank: 11 (-) Week 2 Result: 10-24 loss to Pittsburgh I have been tempted to move this UNC side down a spot or two as I think they've been the least impressive of the 0-2 teams outside of Wake Forest. They had a better showing this week against Pittsburgh but if their offense doesn't find some rhythm soon I can see this team very easily sliding to 0-8. 12. NC State (0-2) Last Week Rank: 12 (-) Week 2 Result: 21-30 loss to #25 Minnesota The Wolfpack kept it close again this week while the offense under Luca Maguire struggled to move the ball down the field. The defense allowed a good chunk of yards for the second straight week but despite that the team still kept it competitive. Prince Brandon and Takoda Sheldon continued to shine for NC State and they will both need to perform in order for NC State to get one in the win column against Charlotte next week. 13. Syracuse (0-2) Last Week Rank: 13 (-) Week 2 Result: 14-23 loss to #23 West Virginia Bryce Smith is carrying this Syracuse defense and keeping them competitive in games that have no business being as close as they are. If the Orange are to have any shot at bowl eligibility they will need Connor McLean to act like he's a competent QB and soon. John Reis has been a fantastic addition to the Syracuse offense but they need to see more from McLean in order to make those bowl dreams a reality. 14. Wake Forest (0-2) Last Week Rank: 14 (-) Week 2 Result: 17-35 loss to Memphis Wake fans are ecstatic with the return of ChicagoTed1 and the players are too. With an actual coach calling plays for Wake moving forward we should see a better looking offense for the Demon Deacons. Real success may still be quite distant for Wake fans but having anyone is a good start for Wake.

    Before The Wars: Update Thread

    Edition #3 Jan 1901 Man Flies “Aeroplane” in Uruguay! An outstanding invention has turned up in Urugentina as the Gomez Brothers have invented an aeroplane powered by an engine that has sustained flight. The amazing invention has people all over the world praising the Gomez Brothers and frantically working to replicate their work. Urugentina now certainly has superiority in the aeroplane industry. Attempted Kidnapping Spoils Spirit of World Conference of Nations An air of cooperation was spoiled at the World Conference of Nations in Montevideo. Leaders from many of the nations of the world gathered to discuss multiple topics, including the current situation in Ghana. The group was not able to do anything for Ghana as the representatives were indecisive. The Urugentian representatives proposed a World Currency which had some support but will be needed to be brought up in individual capitals. Other minor issues included the rights to free exploration and some representatives wanted to discuss the militarization of the skies. All of this good work however went out the window when the representative from the GDJ was a victim of attempted kidnapping. Three men were captured by local authorities and identified as citizens of FAT. It remains to be seen what will happen to them and to future WCoN Meetings as a 2nd WCoN was proposed at the conclusion of the meeting. Delta Republic Sweeps Olympics Sending athletes for every event, the Delta Republic was by far the most prepared nation for the 1900 Olympics in Paris. They took Gold in all the events that occurred this year. Organizers are looking to decouple this event from the World's Fair in the future but it drew massive crowds from the Fair. Iberico and LION Unveil “Radar” at World's Fair End A novel device has been unveiled by Iberico and LION called “Radar”. Using radio waves to bounce off objects it is able to detect the distance between objects. Reportedly this will be used to detect ships coming into harbors and hopes to stop avoidable accidents. Urugentian’s Unveil Mechanical Air Cooling Device Researchers in Urugentina have unveiled a new device to cool the air indoors called an “Air Conditioner.” This device is in its infancy but will help to moderate hot climates or help in the summer months across the world. McKinley Wins Election Despite Militias Rising Up William McKinley has won another term as President of the United States of America. The President defeated William Jennings Bryan despite many local militias rising up in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio demanding reforms. McKinley has pledged to keep all the current states in the Union. Seen as a large victory, voters in Minnesota and Wisconsin both voted down referendums to leave the Union as well. Unsurprisingly, the people that bothered to vote in the states that are associating with the AssFat voted overwhelmingly for the McKinley Ticket after their government endorsed it. Boxer’s Agree to Truce with ASA Citizens, Continue Fighting, Intensified in Manchuria The Boxers leadership has agreed to stop targeting citizens from the ASA but do not recognize their claims in China and have made it known they will not stand for further aggression in China. The Boxers acknowledge the losses on their Western frontier to the Great Horde but will not retaliate as they feel a kindred spirit towards the Great Horde. Illustrating their point is their counter offensive against RUSS troops encroaching in Manchuria where they routed an invasion force. The Boxer’s are close to gaining full control over the nation and are very hostile to all outsiders that they feel are ruining their lands. Brewing Suez Crisis? Multiple nations have made overtures to the former British Colony of Egypt, which has gained independence with the takeover of Britain by the Union of The Britons, to join the Ottoman Sultanate. These all were rebuffed by the Egyptians however who wish to remain independent and control the Suez Canal for themselves. Many observers are worried that this rejection will lead to bloodshed as it is reported that the Ottoman’s have started a “Foreign Corps” that has bolstered both their navy and army. The Suez Canal is one of the most important pieces of infrastructure in the world and as of now it remains open for trade. If it closes the world economy could plunge towards a depression. Many are calling on the Union of The Britons to take action but their calls are unanswered as of now. GOLD! Alayska Flooded with Immigrants A substantial amount of gold has been discovered in Alayska near Nome. The nation has been flooded with immigrants seeking fortune. Potential citizenship also was a draw for some but mostly the GOLD. This has given the Alayskan economy a big boost. In addition to the Gold the Alayskan government has announced the discovery of Continuous Tracks for vehicles which should help to tame their rough nation a bit. Ghana Rebels Emerge, Remain Under Imperium Rebel bands are now roving the countryside in Ghana as they resist Imperium rule. The nation remains very much under Imperium but Fmr. President Buhto’s plea at the WCoN has inspired many to rise up against the Imperium government. Imperium officials are working to integrate the broader region with religion, making Vodun the official religion of the state and sending missionaries to the surrounding areas to try and convert them. Large Shipping Accident in Iberico Waters A large ship has exploded killing all 100 crew members off the coast of Barcelona in Iberico. It is unknown why the ship exploded but Ibericans are weeping for the lives of the poor souls that were lost. Mexico Sells Baja California to Kingdom of Lili Seeking to expand their nation, the Kingdom of Lili has bought Baja California from Mexico. The Mexican government was looking to get rid of Baja California since it became cut off from the rest of the nation (separated by GDJ). The Kingdom of Lili paid a hefty sum for the land and it’s unknown if they will recover economically right away but the land area has expanded greatly for the Kingdom with the acquisition. Ozzy Colonizers REJECTED Colonizers from OZZY have been murdered in Botswana. Attempting to make a peaceful acquisition quickly turned bloody as they were quickly murdered upon crossing the border. Other colonizers in Namibia were kicked out of the nation and returned to South Africa. Kingdom of LiLi, LION Broadcasts Voices Over Radio Building upon Mr. Marconi’s inventions, the Kingdom of Lili, have successfully transmitted sound over radio waves. This breakthrough has been widely sought after and will improve the lives of many on the island nation. This will certainly bring great interest to the isolated nation. It’s reported that LION scientists have also broadcast voice over the radio. The Pacific Rim has become the hotbed of radio advancement and both island nations will benefit from this. Urugentian Antarctica Expedition Feared Dead A brave crew of explorers searching around Antarctica from Urugentina are all feared dead. They were supposed to send one of the ships back for supplies before the end of the year but it has not returned to port yet. Marconi Visits Delta Republic, Establishes New Business Venture Italian radio pioneer Gugliemo Marconi has visited the Delta Republic’s Universities and created brand new radio technical programs at them all as a great benefit to the nation's education. Mr. Marconi has also established a new business venture in the Delta Republic that is expected to be lucrative moving forward. No Progress on Panama Canal GDJ Engineers have arrived in Panama to resume the Panama Canal but have run into multiple issues that have hampered their progress on the canal. It’s unknown how long this will continue. Still NO Gold in Amazon FAT explorers have not found any gold in the heart of the Amazon to the continued detriment of the nation's economy. The GDJ withdrew from the venture after 6 months. Borat Tour of World Starts Borat, a man that the Great Horde has many hopes for has started his tour across the world in the Middle East and Europe. He plans to head across to the North American continent in 1901. Thailand Joins LION, Cambodia and Malaysia Form Anti-LION Union The nation of Thailand has decided to join LION and IPPPC. This will add to the already expansive Pacific nation. However it’s reported that Cambodia and Malaysia have rejected LION and formed their own Anti-LION Union, calling for LION to stop their expansion. Rio Grande do Sul to hold Referendum The Brazillian state of Rio Grande do Sul is going to hold a referendum in 6 months to see if they will join Urugentina or continue to be Brazillians. ASA Opens “Red Light District” The ASA has opened a “Red Light District”. You know what that means ;). Many men from around the world are flocking there for pleasure trips.

    1. Please list your email address and/or your reddit username at which you can be contacted. reeddufour4@gmail.com 2. Before continuing, please thoroughly read the coaching course and feel free to ask questions. Confirm that you have read the coaching course by writing "Confirmed" below. Confirmed 3. What team do you want to coach? Troy Trojans 4. Please select two backup teams (in descending order of preference) in case your first choice is unavailable. Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders Miami Redhawks 5. In three or more sentences, tell us a little about yourself. How old are you, what do you do, where are you from, why would you be a good fit here, etc. I'm 27 years old, and I'm from Louisiana. For the last 3 years, I've worked in healthcare doing data analytics in both Louisiana and South Carolina. I'd be a good fit because I love college football, but I'd also like to be involved in a community that gives it a realistic feeling. 6. This site can be as time consuming as you want it to be. Weekly duties can be completed in 30 minutes or less, however interacting with your fellow players throughout the week makes it more enjoyable for most people. Approximately, how much free time do you have during a typical week? I have a good amount of free time through the week, which is about 7-8 hours a week. 7. Losing games is an inevitable reality on this site, especially when accepting newer teams. Do you believe you can handle losing? Disappointment is expected, however we have had issues with people freaking out, and even leaving the site because of losing. I grew up playing sports and have lost many games throughout my life. I can handle losing because I use losing as motivation and not as a means to quit. 8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username. Reddit

    Both of K Chris Hoag's missed FGs were less than 2 yards wide. But also short? 0/1  44SR 0/1 45SL If a professional kicker is missing 44-yarders short, he's not a professional kicker. Even bad college kickers aren't short on 44-yarders anymore.

    Pretty stoked to have jumped so much early. Shout-out to the defense in particular for helping us get here. They look nasty already. Hopefully we can help them out on offense throughout the season. Toughest tests are still to come though. SF this week is going to be a real barometer for how good we can be.

    Before The Wars: Update Thread

    Update #2 July 1900 WAR, Imperium du Dahomey Invades and Overtakes Ghana The Imperium du Dahomey has launched a successful invasion of Ghana. Imperium battalions and Navy overran their neighbors and pushed their forces all the way to the border with the Ivory Coast. Many locals are cheering the decision and welcomed the troops with open arms and assistance. Ghana is suing for peace but there are reports that the Imperium may not be done with their territorial conquests. Pope Visits Iberico, Praises Contraceptive Law Making a routine visit to his loyal followers Pope Leo XIII praised the newly passed law in Iberico that bans the sale of contraceptives. Pope Leo XII hopes that other Catholics will follow suit and ban the sale of contraceptives like Iberico has. (Iberico will receive a population bonus at year end) IPPPC Announced The Indian-Pacific Peace and Prosperity Coalition (IPPPC) was announced today. This coalition includes 6 nations and will provide multiple benefits for the involved nations. The biggest immediate benefit was the dropping of tariffs among the member states: L.I.O.N, Asiatic State Alliance, Aussieland, Kingdom of Lili, Hindustan and Iberico Madagascar and South Africa Join Aussieland Citing the benefits of IPPPC and the protection that Aussieland’s navy can provide, the island of Madagascar and the people of South Africa have signed a treaty joining the nation. Some local bands of militia have risen up but no major organizational efforts are being undertaken at this point. Great Horde Intervenes in China, Takes Land by Force Claiming the land as their divine right, The Great Horde has advanced into Western China. The nation is still in the throes of revolution as the Boxers still are fighting to control the nation. The Great Horde was met with some resistance from local fighters. They risk involvement in the revolution if they move further East than where their advance has stopped. Panama Absorbed By GDJ, Canal Resumes Construction Finding a suitor for their pleas, Panama has agreed to join the nation of Guerreros del Jardin. This is a strategic and diplomatic victory for GDJ as it will give them control of the Panama Canal when completed and access to a route to the Atlantic. Fat, GDJ Expedition Unsuccessful So Far A joint expedition by the Florida Alliance of Tribes and Guerreros del Jardin has turned into a wild goose chase as they were not able to find any gold so far. The cost has hurt both nations' economies and it will be seen if they decide to continue the venture or cut their losses before too much damage is done. Urugentina Proposes First World Congress of Nations A World Congress of Nations was proposed by Oriental Empire of Urugentina to take place in Montevideo. No particular issues were brought to the forefront but it’s widely known that the Urugentinans were against exploitation of the Amazon’s natural resources by FAT and GDJ. Paris Expo Continues, Olympic Games Announced The Paris Exposition has begun to large crowds. EPCOT unveiled the world's first commercially available tractor. Imperium du Dahomey brought their tattooist guild to exhibit their art. LION brought wonderful agricultural exhibitions. AssFat unvield their new patented assembly line process. Officials for the Expo announced that the Olympic games will take place at the Expo starting in August and running until the end of the expo in October. Rumor has it that the Delta Republic has a headstart on training athletes for this competition. Canada Invests in Alyaska The Canadian government has made investments in their western neighbor Alyaska. The Canadians hope that their investment shows their commitment to a conflict free continent. Hindustan Revamps University System Hindustan has made a commitment to revamping their country's university system. All universities will be organized under the Hindustan Institute of Technology (HIT) umbrella. What kind of developments come from this is unknown but it’s a promising sign for the nation. AssFat Makes Breeding Progress In an attempt to regenerate the bison herd numbers in their territory researchers at the Dakota School of Sciences- Sioux Falls have successfully integrated cattle DNA to increase the resiliency in the bison, a huge breakthrough for AssFat and science. Disney to Open “Parks” Worldwide In multiple agreements EPCOT has agreed to open what they are calling “theme parks” in many nations all over the globe. An undercover investigation into the construction has found that EPCOT might not be on the complete up and up with their intentions and the business agreements might be more than they seem. Greenland, Iceland Reject FAT The islands of Greenland and Iceland have both vehemently rejected FAT’s proposal to join the nation. It is unknown how FAT will react to the news. When asked why they voted no an Icelander was quoted as “FAT destroyed all their schools. We don’t want to be idiots.” Boxers Continue Rebellion, Gain Ground The Boxers have continued their rebellion and look poised to overtake the Eastern portion of the Chinese nation. It’s unknown if they can be stopped at this point. Aussieland Film Industry Booms In hopes of boosting their economy and culture, Aussieland officials have invested into the film industry. This investment has paid dividends as many potential filmmakers have relocated to Sydney and have created multiple studios. The first films are expected by years end Stat Changes Assfat: +.6 Ed, +.2 Tech, +.4 Econ EPCOT: +1.1 Econ Kingdom of LiLi: +.1 Econ Delta Republic: +.1 Sea MP Imperium du Dahomey: +.2 Infra Union of the Britons: +.4 Infra, +.3 Sea MP FAT: -.4 Ed, -.1 ECON, +.3 Sea MP LION: +.6 Econ RUSS: +.6 ECON, +.5 Land MP OZZY: +.9 ECON Iberico: +1 ECON, +.2 Sea MP GDJ: -.1 Econ Ottomans: +.3 Land MP, +.2 Sea MP Alyaska: +.1 Econ ASA: +.3 ECON, +.4 Health Hindustan: +.1 Ed, +.2 ECON, +.3 Health
