Today we added lines (purple) to show United Hoods’ departure from the front lines.
It would also seem that the 12th Global War on Orbis is now officially being called Knightfall…although there seems to be some issues with the poll not staying open long enough for the community to come vote.
That is it for today folks – we seem to have hit that brick wall of war.

It has been 11 days since our last ORB War Tracker update! Where have we been?
Truth is, not much has happened or changed dramatically within the war – you do have plenty of people walking the path of saltiness, you got others trying to urge others to get into the war, and you got some people just straight up getting bored.
Let’s face it – when we are sitting out of these wars, we are constantly begging for one to happen and once it does, there is some minor excitement, huge spur of activity, and then just like that we are bored again.
Something a bit exciting for you might have been the numerous posts, which may have been a push to get Vanguard to join the war?
All of these posts seem to follow the same theme of “I identify as…” – but this is pretty much just old news – all of these fake news DoE posts were sent to the forums on November 1st, by the aggressors of this war.
We saw Sketchy from TGH post on ‘behalf’ of Polaris again…
We watched as Fezza got ripped apart on the forums – apparently looking to gather a lot of support from his side, which fell…quickly & Rozalia is back?
On Sunday, we all got Fraggle’d again – hearing from ChuChu Fraggle in the Alliance Affairs section of the PW Forums. Looks like Fraggle’s 1 man alliance is now a 2 man alliance.
One last thing we want to report on today, which relates to the war is stats! A lot of people thought that ORB Weekly would post and keep up with war stats – unfortunately that was never in our plans, we wanted to keep up with the action and the story – luckly, there are many awesome people in the world who love stats and work hard to produce those stats – today we stumbled upon a post by Frawley in Orbis Central. It would seem that NPO, Lord of Darkness, and Frawley have designed a pretty awesome tool for war tracking – fits in nicely with a clean ui, searchable stats, very easy to use. Frawley says in his post that “this tool tracks every single attack made in the game, it tracks the infra prior to and immediately after attacks.” This system also uses the daily average traded resource price for all loot calculations, resource use costs, and rebuys.
They even have awesome graphics:
Frawley announced that they will have leaderboards for Unit Kills, Most Damaging Beige’s, and list of individual attacks coming soon – plus more!
All stats are available through NPO’s forums right here, have some fun and check out your stats!

Nothing crazy has been happening on the war-side of things besides the continual grind and issue with the ‘war slot line’ – people aren’t finding slots anymore. That is what happens when you have so many people going for so few targets.
Multiple sources are citing that there are not going to be further counters in this war and that this war set up will continue till both sides come to an agreement – BUT – that doesn’t mean there will be changes to directions of aggression. Stay tuned.
- Added public neutral parties.
- Changed Federation lines to purple to indicate there was aggression, but now they are out of the war.

We have updated some lines and aesthetics of the tracker.
- Added lines from BK to Silenzio, TCW, Tesla
- Added Shadow Behind Flags
- Changed Arrow Type of Aggressor (Red)
- The Federation withdraws from the war – on all fronts.

We are back with another update – looks like we have some action kicking up in the protectorate circles. It should be noted that we apply those who we see (At the time of posting) are attacking those who created war declarations, if we missed anyone let us know! We will slap them on the map too!
- The Federation Declares War on The Dixie Union & iStem
- GodFury Declares War on Nova Riata, The Dixie Union, Statesmen, The Knights Radiant, & The Commonwealth
- Statesmen & Nova Riata Recognize Hostilities with Pantheon, Afrika Korps, Sirius, Typhon, & Godfury.
- Black Knights Posts Early Victory
We have updated the war tracker – please be advised that we are keeping this as simple as possible. If you follow the game politics & follow the war progression in our The Brink reports, it would be clear and obvious who the sides are. RED lines will mark the aggressors, blue lines will mark those on the opposite of the aggressors. If we end up with side wars throughout, we will add them with a different color. It is also to be assumed that those alliances who did declare war on another would be retaliating against each other – so there are no double lines being drawn.
Understanding the Tracker:
In efforts to make this a lot simpler for everyone now and into the future when people look back at wars, I decided to create the main DoW lines (aggressors) Red. The Defenders will be in Blue. Blue lines created for offense are only for alliances that were not apart of the main declaration – for example – those that are going to war based off their ally being hit. It would be assumed that if an alliance hits another alliance they would be sharing declarations on each other – so there are no extra lines drawn.
Neutral Parties will be placed on the tracker later on.
We have finally come to the point we have all been waiting for – GLOBAL WAR. ORB is pleased to announce that, if you’ve been following our “The Brink” posts, we correctly delivered the scenario!
We have seen a multitude of declarations posted on the Politics & War Forums – due to an appearance on the GreatJob! show tonight, my work to get you guys this updated war tracker was a little bit delayed.
Please, if there are any errors – let me know ASAP so they can be corrected.

Multiple reports have been sent in to Orbis Weekly over the last 12 hours that indicated war would be happening today. As of update, no shots have been heard. In addition to those reports, we also heard rumor to ‘watch out for midnight’ – with no specific timezone indicated. We waited here at Orbis Weekly till 0000 CST – still, no sign of war.
There is still war on the horizon, don’t think of this as just a dud. Right now, each side of this war are trying to make the other side jump – so far nothing is working. The staring contest continues.
We have entered a cold war-era time.
Stay with us as we continue our report in this post.

It’s that time of year, the time for war!
Orbis Weekly has been reporting to you about upcoming war for some time now in our ‘The Brink” reports. It has come to our attention that this war is about to kick off, in time with our theory. (The NAP end on the 18th).
The good news is, we are going to track every aspect of this war and get as many details as we can to keep you all in-tune with all war operations, even when you’re busy with your own.
