The Zerg Rush War was a coalition territory war fought between the forces of Nameless and their allies against the remnants of New Hood centered around Vinerri and Stygian: Awakening for territory in the city's west.
Following a war which saw significant upheaval as factions were removed from the map, the Order was invited to join a group of factions centered around In Memory of the Fallen in holding territories in Sector 6. With relations warming between the Order and its new allies, Prosperity was able to enter the map to help occupy land.
In late November the coalition received information suggesting that the forces of New Hood would be launching an attack following their defeat on the map. By December 5 the threat of war had been reduced following information suggesting that the New Hood had splintered, with Vinerri leading one remnant of it.
Unexpectedly the Hall of Fame faction JUX launched an assault for three rackets in territories to the north of where the allied forces were located, which were occupied by Atlas. JUX initially landed on Dark Energy, who instantly capitulated within minutes of the war starting. Next it emerged that Flux was aware that the attack would be coming but failed to inform the coalition. Plans were drawn up to eliminate Dark Energy and Flux in order to hand the lands over to Atlas as compensation for losing them to JUX. These plans were disrupted when Atlas at the last minute abandoned the operation.
Dark Energy and Flux then abandoned their territories, and allowed Vinerri and Stygian: Awakening to occupy their lands and start their assault on coalition forces.

Prior to the war, the positions of Strength and Prosperity had been shifted around in preparation for the expected assault by New Hood. This left Prosperity closer to the front line then had been planned, resulting in them coming under attack by Stygian: Awakening at 17:15:57 on December 9th.
After a valiant defensive operation, Stygian: Awakening successfully conquered the territory after nearly 24 hours of fighting.

After Stygian's war with Prosperity had concluded, Strength and Prosperity switched positions to allow Strength to go on the counter attack.
Stygian had little time to enjoy their victory as Strength started an assault to reclaim JCG at 15:55:08 on December 10th, claiming the territory in a straight forward fight after 15 hours at 06:35:06 December 11th.

30 minutes after the Second Battle of JCG ended, at 06:56:13 Strength initiated an attack on Vinerri for the territory of MCG. The initial attack pushed the Vinerri defenders off the wall, and after successfully occupying the wall for 14 hours Strength halted progress electing to match any Vinerri defenders that sat on the wall in order to assist allied forces on other walls.
After successfully maintaining a holding pattern for nearly 50 hours, Strength was given the order to conquer the wall and the territory was captured at 23:50:07 on December 13th.
First Battle of HTB

The next assault took place at 08:59:15 on December 14th when Strength started to attack HTB held by Stygian. The fighting was some of the toughest that Strength had faced up to that point, with significant gains not being seen until 38 hours into the fighting.
49 hours in the battle a decision was made to shift the fighting away from the HTB wall to assist the Order's allies with their walls. This unfortunately was a tactical mistake as Stygian focused the HTB wall at the same moment and drove the Order's score backwards in the next 17 hours to the point that it was mathematically impossible for Strength to capture it and the battle was lost.

After over a week of fighting, Vinerri and Stygian had been pushed back to a handful of territories. While plans were being drawn up by Nameless forces to de-sector them and expel them from the map, word was received that Vinerri was going to abandon the area and Stygian surrendered bringing the war to a close.
Nameless was able to consolidate in the areas that it had occupied and held, solidifying its position as a faction alliance.
