    2. Armed expatiation in large nations and regions with extremism climates like OTL 2012 Greenland, Niger, Nepal and Amazonia will also be very slow due to logistic and climate problems for any wood-be invader. In this case the defender gets an advantage of +5 and the attacker gets a disadvantage of -6
    3. A sub-national regional tactical advantage can occur in some otherwise not extreme places  (for example crossing the OTL 2012 Kalahari desert between co-joining parts of Namibia, S. Africa and Botswana): +4 defender/-3 attacker

    4. +10 for surrounding enemy.
    5. If defeated last turn, then the looser from that battle is -1 to his opponent in this battle.


  1. Control of the Seas: 3+ attackers, or 5+ defenders. (The nation with a superior navy in that area, that has control of the seas of the areas, has a major advantage, due to blockading ports, or cutting off the enemy's supplies.
  2. Armed forces leadership (Depending on who is leading the army, if he historically successful leader like FldM. Rommel, Attila the Hun, etc.) Attacker: 1+ Defender: 1+

  • War with a unrelated civilization prior to 1900 (Ottomans Vs Chinese, Rome Vs Genghis Khan, etc) Attacker -5.


  1. Add the totals up and find the biggest total. The biggest wins.
  2. Do this for every turn your warring in.
    1. If the total war zone is bigger than OTL Poland, or the front line longer than the total border length of OTL Poland, then it must be divided and done in 2 'fronts'. 1 algo per front, each front affecting 1/2 the battle.
      1. If it is bigger than OTL India, use 3 'fronts' instead.
        1. If it is bigger than OTL China, use 4 'fronts' instead.
  3. The result goes on the War Algorithm result page for record.


Hi I have recently always been on Map Game Wiki, and I am a chat moderator, it seems I was promoted. Yet no one goes on the chat. Ive been able to recruit eight people into using the Map Game wiki daily now. But I am also looking to become an admin, although it seems the elections have closed. SwankyJ (talk) 19:23, May 7, 2014 (UTC)


The prepare map game is it still on and if not should I take over. DannytheKing (talk) 18:09, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, you can.Whipsnade (talk) 18:16, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

New Algo TemplateEdit

I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me development a new algorithm with a strong emphasis on different fronts rather than the whole war or a 1-battle algorithm. Kurt Cobain's Haircut (talk)

Yes, I would.Whipsnade (talk) 22:58, July 13, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think I currently have a use for this template, but it may go well with that one 1850s map game you were planning Kurt Cobain's Haircut (talk) 20:32, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

I was thinking of using it there. Thanks for the suggestion.Whipsnade (talk) 22:09, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Shattered Stars and StripesEdit

It's started!JC Denton here. My vision is augmented. (talk) 22:08, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

Whipsnade i have seen a few things throughtout the MGW, one of which is that there are bureaucrats without certain procedure (or rather randomly) for such as elected leader of the MGW i'd ask you to demote all the other bureaucrats. If done we can establish a TSPTF like government with elections regarding the brass members and others etc, etc. We may discuss this later on chat if you desire so. Thank you for your attention and farewell friend Sine dei gloriem "Ex Initio Terrae" (talk) 02:23, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

Done, but I can't remove bureaucrat status on some. All roll-backers, chat moderators and admissions are scrappedWhipsnade (talk) 11:12, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

Hello sir!Edit

I see MGW is somewhat active again. Are there any new interesting map games going on at the time that would be worth checking out?

KingTrevor and Socks Edit

Hi, it has been known that kingtrevor and the listed users are the same. I was unaware that my block didn't work, however he has not been present since. I also gave his main account 6 months instead of infinite. I figured it would be up to higher powers to decide if he should be blocked permanantly50.247.218.161


Thanks for the welcome, it is a nice looking wikia you have here.

RE: Future Map Game 3 Edit

I would be interested, but the nation I would like(Israel) is taken by Kingtrevor already. I'm unsure if I'll join right now. ~Tech

Is it too late to join your 1865 Map Game? Because not even the strongest, bravest and smartest of us can bring peace to the world... (talk) 06:39, July 14, 2015 (UTC)
