HELLO AND WELCOME TO FORERUNNER CONFLICT! We'd like to thank you for visiting our site and hope you join our fast growing community! But what is Forerunner Conflict? Here is some information on what we are all about!

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 (Royal Enforcers Deployment Division) and BLUE (Brotherhood Legion of United Exiles), who battle every Sunday night at 6:00 PM (EST) over various maps to gain control of a Warmap that we have created. In a war simulator, each army follows a ranking system and divides their members into units of varying sizes. The Wars use a variety of gametypes, some simple such as Slayer and CTF, and others more unique and custom-made, but in the end it all feel like an actual war setting.

History of the original War-Simulation Community:
Our community draws its roots from the spring of 2005, which means we've been around for SEVEN YEARS. We were the first community to ever bring the true War-Sim feeling to the Halo Universe. 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 at the start of Halo 3. Through the years we've gone through many positive changes to make our wars more authentic, realistic, and fun.

Our Most Important Rule:
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 dislike 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 and enjoy their time as a community member!

A War Simulation, Not Clan-Battles

Forerunner Conflict does not partake in "Clan-Battles" of any sort.

We are a War Simulation. That means that we simulate wars between our two factions, REDD and BLUE.

Each war features varied maps, layouts, designs, rules, and themes. No two wars are the same.

As the factions scramble to compete against each other, Battles are held each week, where the members are pitted against each other in order to capture or defend their territories.

Eventually, the stalemate breaks and one army manages to take the majority of the maps. Over time, they will advance toward the opponent's Capital map. Once there, a Capital Battle ensues.

If the attackers capture the Capital, they are declared victorious in the war. All members of the victorious army are awarded a Victory Ribbon.

Following each war, a period of Peacetime is given for the armies to balance, reorganize, and prepare for the upcoming war.

Our Leadership

Heading the entire community is the War Council. It is a group of about 5-7 members who are in charge of leading the community, managing the wars, and preparing improvements for the community.

The War Council is made up of the Field Marshals from each army, the neutral Forerunners, who act as a bridge between the armies, and any Founders of the community. Current members of the War Council include:

  • Raz Vader - Founder and integral leader of the community.
  • SpartanBH - Forerunner and Founder of the community.
  • EriRi 1138 - Forerunner and five-year veteran.
  • Kuhblam - BLUE Field Marshal and three-year veteran
  • Ghosthammer - REDD Field Marshal and five-year veteran.

Additionally, there are numerous members and positions which provide input and advice to the War Council to ensure every decision is effective and appropriate. Current advisers to the War Council include:

  • Maxdoggy - BLUE General and four-year veteran.
  • Gargoyle - REDD General and two-year member.
  • Metkil5685 - Website Administrator, Webmaster, and five-year veteran.
  • Mythonian - War Director, Website Administrator, and two-year member.

In the tier just below the War Council lies the High Command and Global Moderators, who are charged with focusing on a specific aspect of the community and assist enforcing the decisions of the War Council. Additionally, they may provide additional advisement to the members of the War Council.

Each army is led by a High Command which works under the Field Marshal and General. The Lieutenant General, Major General, and Brigadier General concentrate on ensuring that the army runs smoothly and focus on improving their army.

The Global Moderators work to ensure the forums and its members comply with all rules and regulations while on the website. They have access to nearly all areas of the forums and may provide assistance or recommendations in various circumstances, as well as issue infractions and initiate bans and suspensions.
