FORERUNNER CONFLICT: A HALO 4 WAR SIMULATOR.


(TL:DR SUMMARY NEAR BOTTOM)

Hello! My name is SpartanBH and I am here to tell you about the war simulator community that is Forerunner Conflict. What is a war simulator community you ask? In a nutshell, it is a community that simulates the actual feeling of a real war and military-like feeling in the HALO universe. There are two armies, REDD and BLUE, who “battle” every Sunday night at 6PM (EASTERN TIME ZONE) over various maps to gain control of a “war map” that we have created. In a war simulator, each army has a ranking system, and each army also has Battalions and Platoons. The “Wars” (as we call them) use a variety of gametypes, some simple such as SLAYER and CTF, and others more unique and custom-made, but in the end all feel like an actual war setting. ***See bottom of post if you are already in a clan/community.

History of our community:
Our community has been around since the spring of 2005, which means we’ve been around for ALMOST SEVEN YEARS. Our name has gone through various changes, most notable ones are Red vs. Blue Wars, Allies vs. Axis, Galactic Wars, and Red vs. Blue Retaliation, before finally becoming Forerunner Conflict by the start of Halo 3. Through the years we’ve gone through many positive changes to make our wars more authentic and fun. Currently, there are approximately 150-200 soldiers and growing fast each day.

This all sounds awesome! How do I join!?
Well first off, you should visit our forum boards, register, and enlist for whichever army you would like (PLEASE REGISTER WITH YOUR ACTUAL GAMERTAG, and please put who you were referred by. In this case, it would be SpartanBH or the Waypoint Recruiting Topic). Our forums are http://fcwars.net/. But, you can’t immediately jump into battle once you enlist! Even in the actual world, all enlisted must go through a BOOT CAMP. Yes, you heard me, BOOT CAMP. This has been the TRADEMARK of our community since the day it was created. All members must go through a BOOT CAMP, in which they will be told the rules, regulations, and will be shown several few military-like tactics that can come in handy in the actual battles or even matchmaking! We also to use BOOT CAMPS to weed out anyone who isn’t interested or not taking us seriously. To receive a boot camp, please enlist on the forums and you will be contacted by a drill instructor.

Here are also people you may contact for details:

BLUE ARMY:
WSxPhoenix-Field Marshal
Purple Gamer 17-General
Salvanous-Lt. General

**You MUST be at least 15 years old to enlist. Special cases will be made for people younger who can prove they are mature enough to be with us.

Our Most Important Rule:
RESPECT!
Though our community is a war simulator and we take our roles seriously, our number one focus is about RESPECT and making sure everyone is having fun, because in the end that’s why people play video games, to have FUN! If you join, don’t hate someone because they are in a different army, our job is to make sure everyone is friendly and having a fun time, while at the same time being competitive! We encourage people to make many new friends.

So if you are looking for a fun, yet military-like competitiveness and new interesting experience over HALO 4, PLEASE CONTACT ME (or preferably one of the army leaders) IMMEDIATELY!! I will gladly respond ASAP and answer any questions.

MAKE SURE YOU VISIT OUR FORUMS FIRST THOUGH! http://fcwars.net/ !! MAKE SURE YOU POST IN THE UNIVERSAL RECRUITMENT SECTION PLEASE!

TL:DR: If you’re looking to join a large and very unique community that utilizes HALO 4 custom games to the max with a spice of authentic war-like feeling, then you should enlist in an army and join the wars of Forerunner Conflict as a soldier in either the REDD or BLUE Army! Feel free to bring your friends as well! Look us up at FCWars.net! Make sure to register an account using your actual gamertag!

***If you are already in a clan, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR CLAN TO JOIN OUR COMMUNITY. Like I said, we are a community, not a clan. You can bring in your clan as a group into these wars and we will give you a set squad/platoon depending on how many people you have. But again, by no means are we trying to destroy or poach members from your clan. If you are interested in affiliating with us, then by all means contact our Forerunners:

sound cool how do i sign up

Just go onto our forums (FCwars.net), register, and go to the Enlistment office and choose an army. Thank you for your support and see you on the battlefield!

Great, I’m loving the fact that I’m not the only person who is trying to get Forerunner Conflict more popular. I enlisted last war and am loving it :slight_smile:

Been a part of this community since '07 and I must say it is way better than just playing Matchmaking. You will make new friends and enjoy an experience like no other. The Warsim experience is pretty sweet, by participating and doing above and beyond things in your Army you can rank up and eventually lead a squad, platoon, or even the Whole Army. If you are looking for something other than matchmaking and a community of friends then I would highly recommend joining this community

I am Colonel LUCK of REDD army, I would like to add that Forerunner Conflict is what makes me love Halo. I have never had so much fun with a video game, what you do on the battlefield or on the forums can make a big difference for your army. When I joined I knew NOBODY, now I have a strong friend base and I am never bored or alone on Halo. I joined in July of 2011 and quickly rose through the ranks meeting new people and improving my skills.

Also, we are not only limited to Halo. While our battles take place on Reach some members set up and organize game nights on various other games such as: Halo 3, Gears of War, Skyrim, etc… If you are looking to meet new people and have a fun time not just Halo but on Xbox Live I cannot support Forerunner Conflict enough. If anybody would like to learn more feel free to message me over Xbox Live. My gamertag is UNLUCKY NUM13ER.

Wow this sounds great great. Gonna sign up.

Yes, Forerunner Conflict is a great place. I’ve been there for a bit over a year now, and I’ve had a blast. I’ve held every rank up to Major in BLUE army, and we’ve done pretty well.

So join up today!

I’ve been in Forerunner Conflict for 6 months, and it’s a great place! You meet lots of people, and help either the BLUE or REDD army win a war.

I’m confused, you said there are 150+ of you but there are only 4 or 5 people in each army?

No, those five people listed above are the armies’ High Commands. They make the important decisions, basically. You would start as just a regular soldier, and through commitment and earning respect, you may one day be in the High Command.

EDIT: ^^^^ Whoops sorry Bodacious beat me to it!

No no, those are the High Commands of each army (the four Generals and Battalion Commanders). There are the ones who will be most helpful for getting you situated into a Boot Camp!

What time is each battle ?

Sundays at 6pm (Eastern Time Zone). Currently the wars are at a peacetime while we prepare for the next which should be 4-6 weeks from now. But this gives the armies time to renovate and change anything they’d like for the next wars. Also we are implementing new rules and gametypes for the next war! Make sure to tell your friends about us!

Quick as lightning Spartan.

I believe the battles are at 6 EST on Sundays.

Edit: ^^^^ You got me this time Spartan.

Ah i won’t be able to make any of them, they’re all too late for me. That will be past midnight for me

That’s too bad :confused:

Been apart of this community since 2006! It’s truly a unique experience and you won’t find one like it anywhere else.

I would be an example of one of the exceptions on the age limit, and truly, this is a great community to be in.

A lot of FC members in here lol, and we understand if you are unable to make the times, hopefully one day you will be able to. We do actually have some European members, and quite a few Canadians as well.
