CATEGORY 2 DEBATESThis is a war debate. It is impossible to accept this debate. If you want to accept, please send me a PM. If you somehow find a way to accept this debate, you will automatically forfeit the complete 7 points. Tell me what country you will represent, and tell me why I should choose you to be my opponent; give me a very good reason as to why you want to do this debate and why you would be a worthy opponent. I am Angola. Comment if you are interested. If you want to debate, message me. Note: Any country on the Sahara is not allowed. If you are a member of the Art of War (AOW) debate group [created by @The-Voice-of-Truth], then you must vote on this debate. If you are a member of AOW and accept this debate, then state your win/loss ratio. If you are interested in joining AOW, message @TheRussian or @The-Voice-of-Truth. The primary prerequisite to join this group is: you have to have participated in AT LEAST ONE war debate. If you are a member of AOW, you must vote on other members' war debates unless a valid reason is given. You can challenge other members to debates related to war game scenarios.There is a Moderator who will ensure that this debate follows the below rules. For this debate, the Moderator is (insert member name).There are some strict rules that apply. Voters must penalize any violation of the rules. 1. When you accept the debate, state your country, and state the numbers of your armed forces (aircraft, men, ships, etc.). Use this source for military numbers ONLY, as it is the most reliable: Each country's turn can range from about 3 days to 60 days long, so all actions must be in accordance with this time period. (DO NOT try to win in one turn! Take into account that your opponent is also a living, thinking being that can adapt to a situation.)3. Morale is a key factor in your armed forces' effectiveness.4. You may produce more military forces (soldiers, ships, aircraft, tanks/humvees/cavalry), but it depends on your military budget, your country's population, and how industrialized your nation is.5. You may choose to invade or defend.6. The defender makes the first move.7. The defender's primary military objective is to remove the attacker's forces from the defender's territory. The attacker's primary military objective is to annex the other country, or destroy it (physically, economically, etc). Secondary military objectives can be made by the debaters if they wish. Fulfillment of the military objectives is victory. If either side fails to fulfill their set objectives, the voters are free to reasonably determine the winner based off of who was more successful in completing their objectives.8. If a nation's capital is destroyed/liberated, this does not necessarily mean that the war is won; the capital could be recaptured. If one of the debaters destroys or controls the administration of the opposing country, OR if the opposing country is destroyed to the point of no administration, then that debater is immediately guaranteed a 7-point victory.9. Every aspect of the war must be realistic and must remain within the parameters established by the rules and the title. Any unrealistic action and actions deviating from the rules will cause the entire action to be void. Any further deviation after the first void action will result in a complete debate forfeiture.10. Weapons of mass destruction are NOT allowed. A WMD is defined as:-Radiological weapon or a radiological dispersion device: any weapon designed to spread radioactive material-Nuclear or Thermonuclear weapon: an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions-Chemical weapon: a device that inflicts chemicals designed to harm or kill humans/animals-Biological weapon: the use of biological toxins or infectious organisms to inflict damage.Non-conventional detonation of conventional weapons IS allowed. 11. No allies (NATO, UN, Muslim Brotherhood, or otherwise) under ANY circumstances. Annexation of other countries or agreements that allow formations of larger nations and/or direct military intervention is NOT allowed. Personnel and forces CANNOT be supplied by other nations.You CAN have military or diplomatic agreements and/or treaties with other nations (agreements not to interfere etc). Radical groups, militant organizations, paramilitary factions et cetera are NOT allowed.Religion is NOT a factor. No economic sanctions from any other nation, but economic warfare is allowed.You cannot increase your country"s population, nor can you use ANY method to allow the involvement of other countries other than what is specified. You cannot receive donations or economic support from private agencies.12. Cyberwarfare is allowed. Electronic warfare is limited to radar/radio jamming and interception; NO EMPs.13. The country chosen must be one of the 206 sovereign states recognized by the United Nations as of 2015. Former states such as the USSR are not accepted, nor are territory-controlling factions not officially recognized by the United Nations, such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, currently the Islamic State), and Gaza Strip, controlled by Hamas, but recognized by the UN as a part of Palestine. You cannot choose my nation.14. Appropriate conduct MUST be maintained: no insults, cursing, profanity, vulgar language or trolling. Any violation of appropriate conduct WILL BE REPORTED to DDO authorities. 15. If you fail to follow the rules once, you will be given a warning and your actions in that round will be void. Further disobedience of ANY of these rules WILL result in an immediate loss of the debate.16. The Instigator is Pro.17. These debates are strictly Force versus Force; no civilian action is allowed unless Total War is declared.18. TOTAL WAR can be declared only as an absolute last resort. Total war is defined as the complete mobilization of all available manpower of the country. In a state of total war, every able citizen either joins the military personnel or the military labor workforce.19. All scenarios MUST be realistic; there MUST be an established reason for conflict.20. We may either follow the date-time storyline format, or state the events that occur directly as realistically possible in a period of 45 days.21. This is a Category 2 AOW debate. A category 2 debate DO NOT allow the usage of WMDs. Category 1 debates allow WMDs.

Posted by walle_ras 1 year ago
They were in your stoopid city.
Posted by greatkitteh 1 year ago
Even so ,I outnumbered your Population , Agriculture, And economy, So i could still break your lines. If you Moved All your troops on offense, Breaking lines are very wasy, And That meabs The Bulk of your troops are right in My Artillery Range. Either way, U could subject The Bulk kf your army with Explosives.

And If your troops are All in Offense, Reallise You have to go online everytime I attack, You Won't Have Enough Intelligence To Move Your troops Back otherwise. If Bulk of your army is Offline, I could simply Speed past your troops , And Blitzkrieg Them anywaym
Posted by walle_ras 1 year ago
No I wasn't if you notice I said that I move most of my army to one location.
Posted by greatkitteh 1 year ago
Also, Fast troop kovements are allowed, And Easy if aren't Online. I can attack your army.
Posted by greatkitteh 1 year ago
If you aren'T online, That just makes thw Job easier. I have 50 Launchers at the beginning Of my War, And i made more. As for the navy, I could make my Ships, Whilst you attacked at the beginning of the war. I waited until round 3 to attack.
Posted by greatkitteh 1 year ago
You are spread thin. Your Navy is in the alantic, You have to Guard Four Fronts, Your offensive, Up in DRC , South , And later in the east.
Posted by walle_ras 1 year ago
You don't have any battle ships either.

I was not spread thin. My entire army was in one place. Except for the troops guarding my unloading docks therefore you breaking my lines are void. Also how did you get missles? On cyber warfare I am not online. You can't take me out when all tech is offline. I void you stopping my troops. Your entire turn is one void mess of to fast troop movements and stuff.

Who won the debate:-Vote Checkmark
Reasons for voting decision: Walle_ras conceded the debate to Greatkitteh placing the vote for con. However, this war debate ended in a Pyrrhic victory for Walle_ras since Angola repelled South Africa despite the loss of its central government and becoming a decentralized tribal state of various warlords. For those who don't know what a Pyrrhic Victory is, a Pyrrhic victory is a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat like the one we've seen with Walle_ras vs Greatkitteh.
