Towards the end of November 2019, players began to regard Nova as a boring world where not many interesting wars were taking place. In addition, Nova began being recognized for its toxicity following the North American War; primarily due to the intense hostility between Nova America and the Republic of Texas.
On September 21, 2019, Nova was created. In the first hour of its release, players walked on every continent, apart from Antarctica. The first town created on Nova was Timbuktu (now part of Songhai), created by MisterAtom and Holy_Divinity. The second town created was Blackhaven (now part of the Norman Empire), created by morte_rossa with help from other players. The third city created was Kiev (now part of Avar). The first nation created was Songhai, in West Africa, and the second was Zhao, in East Asia. The first mission completed on Nova was done by Ineza_Kai.
Ecrinian War of Terror Edit
On September 22nd, the town of Ecrin decided to raid the towns of Amsterdam and other coastal settlements. The Ecrinians surrounded Amsterdam and began attacking the Amsterdamers.

Battle of the Bremen Clocktower Edit
The newly founded town of Bremen went under attack from a small group of Ecrinians, but retreated due to the defenses the Bremen Clocktower provided under LisPisCringe.
FlyNovus conflict Edit
In early September, there was confusion over which nation owned the airline FlyNovus, which is headed by Airplaneguy9. This led to people believing that the Hanseatic Empire owned FlyNovus, as Airplaneguy9 was initially part of the nation, FlyNovus was (at the time) based in a Hansa city, and FlyNovus owned 20% of the state-owned airline Hanseatia. Airplaneguy9 finally released a statement declaring that FlyNovus was not owned by a nation. This seems to have released tension, especially between Hansa and Mercia (the Norman Empire). This conflict was observed mostly on the Nova Discord server.
Carthaginian War of Terror Edit
Carthaginian pirates and terrorists have been attacking settlements since the nation came into existence. However, A week after the server opened, Carthaginian pirates have become relentless in killing and scamming players all over Europe and the Middle East.

The Nuclear Autumn Edit
Recently, nuclear weapons have been used to a large extent for the destruction of countless cities and mass killing.

Around the world, nations are amplifying their defences, should war come.
Transylvanian Civil War Edit
On October 27th, 2019, the Transylvanian town of Belgrade, driven by what they considered high taxes, made a plea to ruler Raller0907 for independence. The plea was denied, and the nation fell into a state of civil war. Multiple external nations picked sides to support, with the Germanic Empire making it clear they supported Belgradian independence.
Heating Tensions Edit
The support of the Germanic Empire sparked fierce debate between the nations of Rome and Germany. Rome asserted their intention to declare war on the German Empire with help from the Norman Empire, to which they responded with claims to be backed up by Nova America, Carthage, and Australia.
Arguments continued throughout the day, and resulted in Rome declaring a nationwide embargo on any trade with Nova America until further notice.
Fall of Rome Edit

It owns all airports and airlines on the server (unless it is part of Nova America, in which case it is then owned by the State of South Africa).
