Yesterday there was an epic battle going on in a normally quiet part of the world as eNZ and eAustralia made their bid for freedom from the occupying forces of eMKD. For me it was one of the most interesting battles I’ve seen in a long time - the costs and distances involved- especially during this time of expensive weapons and food - were significant. But I was very happy to see not only the big turnout, but the sense of unity and brotherhood we all displayed.
All the major UK military units sent as many as they could, along with forces from Poland, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Slovenia and other allies around the world- including South America. It was a great fight on both sides with CoT switching priorities when they needed between the two battles and finally dragging back eNZ to win overnight. I have to admit when I went to bed last night and NZ was winning by a decent margin I’d hoped to wake up to victory. I was disappointed that we had lost when we all put so much effort into the campaign, but what we can take from this as a positive is that feeling of co-operation and mutual support.
I’m not going to make this a long article, but one final thing:- For a long time the major commonwealth nations have found themselves on opposite sides. At one point Australia was EDEN aligned, Canada Asgard, NZ CoT, UK TWO and South Africa neutral. That’s almost impressive. Now we find ourselves in a position where all but Canada are broadly TWO aligned (either as members, or their interests lean that way). And let’s not count out Canada. Our countries share a deep common history, a language, a single underlying culture that it takes an outsider to recognise. As much as we love our European allies, cultural and linguistic barriers abound on both sides. It’s a nice opportunity for the commonwealth countries to grow together.
Thus I’ve made a channel: #ecommonwealth, for all people from erep countries associated with the RL commonwealth of nations (and friends) to come, chill out, make friends and even work together on plans and actions together. I’m hoping that the friendship and support we saw yesterday was merely the beginning.
