If you think about it, the "Great War" (real life) was used because it was the first time they've seen something of that size. It isn't meant to be used for two other wars. We need to start coming up with some more creative names than just "Great War III" "Great War II" and "Great War I".

Seriously people. Open up suggestions here too.

Edit: mods, please move to OWF, posted in wrong forum.

The next war will most likely not be called a Great War. The world's changed per the last one, and our naming will change with it. III is a generally accepted number for the end of wars, anyway.

Good idea, but it's best to keep things simple.

Although there was the ' Maroon Great War ' does that count? :P

Eh... You're right

Great war is just that. A Great War. Anything that is large and great, could be considered a great war. It works just fine.

There was a Maroon Great War? I know of the Maroon War and the front of Great War III (RIA v. MDC) which was Maroon War II but otherwise...I'm clueless here.

I'm always going to refer to this as March Madness. Or maybe Spring Cleaning.

We haven't used the great war.

There was the Great Patriotic War, then the Great Cleansing War I, and we just finished up the the Great Cleansing War II.

I like the Great Wars signification. And, I think we can stop using it now if we want to. The "Great Wars" can signify the 3 large conflicts in which NPO vs. GATO/LUE was the primary conflict. I don't see a problem in that. With the destruction of LUE and the severe weakening of GATO, that age is over.

I think the next major war should be named something else though, as the CN eras have changed.

CN has many wars that are not considered "great". The "great" moniker has been used accurately thus far.

They came for the NAAC, and I recognized them as the imperialists they were.
They came for the ODN, and I fought them with every soldier I had.
They came for the ICSN, and I condemned them as the imperialists they were.
They came for the NAAC again, and I condemned them as the imperialists they were.
They came for LUE, and I wanted to stop their imperialism as they vied for world domination.
Then they came for GATO, and it was too late.
