    Ghetto Nightmare VS Checkmate

    I know people only like tracking "top wars", but has anyone been tracking the Ghetto Nightmare vs Checkmate war that has been going on for almost 3 weeks now?

    Is there an update on this. Just by looking at the stats it has been neck and neck the whole way.

    I wonder if this will turn into an age long war. If they manage to fight on for a good 10-12 weeks, I think they should get a crown just for endurance :-p

    I wrote a detailed analysis of the war in quick reply, and it didn't save =_=.

    TL;DR: We surrendered up 1500 acres because we didn't want to keep inviting provinces to match them and drag it out even longer than it had to be .

    Apperently checkmate withdrew. Judging from the number of player in each kingdom Ghettonightmare did a better job recruiting

    I'm Checkmate's steward. We did a perfectly executed T/M hollow-out (after a ton of whining in the forums for us to surrender, mind you).

    Then the recruiting spree started when we dropped their networth by 270k in a day

    I'd love to hear a full war summary if any of you guys feels like sparing the time to write up the details? How did both KDs play things out? Why did the WD take so long? Would Checkmate have eventually won?

    Recruiting provs to try to win a war is pathetic

    We let their attackers get too many peasants in the first week, so they got a second wind.

    That and the recruiting was why it lasted so long.

    It was a fun war, but tiring. I had 59 uniques. I'm still waking up at 3 am out of habit.

    I play in Ghetto Nightmare.

    It was a tough, close war that went on for as a long as it had to, given MP is unheard of nowadays. Although my own activity was awful, I think we just about edged the war in terms of activity, unique counts and the dragon game, and eventually got our act together with peasant control. I thought Checkmate stuck in admirably and did a good job of evening out the networth twice, but it never really felt like we were going to lose. The networth fluctuated for both kingdoms, usually down to new provinces joining or dying, and it was largely a slugfest.
    It felt like we were always winning, but we actually won mostly because we had built unbreakables and were able to make them tell against their larger t/m's. A mostly fun war that must have been difficult to withdraw from, so respect to Checkmate for having the guts to do so and having some superb players and strategies. I'm proud of our collective performance and glad to have blooded some of our new players. We don't always win the insanely long wars, so it's pleasant to have won this one.

    Lastly, although it was mostly civil considering the length of the war, there was a bit of a pissing contest in the war forums halfway through. I hope not to see the same bullshit here.
