GLOBAL COMBAT is a Risk like web based game in which turns are taken simultaneously. The game has a very natural playing pattern which is rich in strategic options as well as tactical battles. Since it is played over the internet, actions are hidden from your enemies until the turn runs. GLOBAL COMBAT has a WW1 era motif and contains a Elo based rating system which rewards players depending on their place in the game, not just whether they win or lose. This leads to the political side to GLOBAL COMBAT, in which you must sometimes forge alliances in order to survive, fighting not just to win, but for your honor...
