World War VIII, also known as the Second Silver Rush War or the War of No Judges, is a conflict that began on October 8th, 2021, following the Help Force's invasion of Down Under from the Silver Empire. HF chose to invade the server following a decision to resume the Silver Rush War from April of the same year. The war concluded on November 15th, 2021.
On October 9th, 2021, the Silver Empire chose to retaliate by declaring a war against HF. Help Force then formally announced the "second phase" of the Silver Rush War against SE, largely due to allegations of multi-logging and toxic remarks towards HF's leadership.
The Western Bloc alliance was formed by the Silver Empire, consisting of their Water Vikings and Special Weapons and Tactics allies in an attempt to fight back against Help Force, while the Vengeance Alliance was conceived by Help Force, the Army of Club Penguin, and Red Ravagers. The People's Imperial Confederation would later join the war on the side of the Vengeance Alliance, declaring war on the Water Vikings after WV announced invasions against Help Force.
Almost every major army was involved in the war, with the exceptions of the Rebel Penguin Federation and Ice Warriors. Many individuals in the community consider the Second Silver Rush War to be the biggest war of 2021, bringing excitement to the community not seen since World War VII, the War of Smoke and Sour, or World War Rewritten.
On November 15th, 2021, the "Treaty of the Unnamed" was signed brining an official end to World War VIII. There was no official winner as stated by the terms of the treaty. The treaty led to the agreement of a non-aggression pact between the PIC, RR, ACP, HF, and SWAT and their Water Vikings allies. The NAP is to last until January 31st, 2022. A NAP was also signed between PIC, RR, ACP and the SE that also ends on January 31st, 2022. In addition to the two main NAP's, HF and SE signed their own NAP which is to end on April 20th, 2022. These treaties were to apply to any of the armies' colonies as well.
There were also many server trades that were a result of the conclusion of World War VIII. Help Force agreed to give the Silver Empire the servers of Snow Angel, Winter Way, Ice Coast, Down Under, Cream Soda, and Ice Breaker. In return, Silver Empire traded the servers of Jackhammer and Sled to Help Force. Help Force and Water Vikings traded the servers Patagonia of and Patagonia, as well as Ice Pack and Rocky Road. The PIC and Water Vikings were to trade Mittens and Fleece Cap.
As a result of the treaty, there was no true winner declared. As stated by the treaty, failure to comply with the NAP until the dates provided would result in an invasion. This treaty brought an end to a war that many dubbed "The War with No Judges" or "Silver Rush 2.0." As many as eleven different armies were said to have taken place in this conflict.
