100 years ago, on the eleventh day of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the war that ended all wars was finally over. Well, to maintain full historical accuracy, it was not until the following year that the Versailles Treaty was signed between Germany and the Allied Powers that the First World War had officially ended. However, as everyone knows, November 11, 1918, After 11 years of bloody fighting, which consumed about 16 million lives, it has already passed 11 years.
Since the initiation of King George V in 1919, the Day of the Covenant (or Memorial Day) is celebrated annually around the world in Commonwealth countries to commemorate this cessation of hostilities. The red memorial mugs (inspired by the poems of Canadian lieutenant colonel John McCrae and a professor from the University of Georgia, Moina Michael) are worn and exposed in a visible way as survivors of the Great War and their descendants pay homage to those who have fallen in pursuit of this blood soaked room. In the past, these were physical poppies worn, but nowadays you can often see monitors in social media because people have observed this solemn ceremony.
The same was true of another modern medium in which Armistice Day was commemorated as players in Battlefield 1, an FPS shooter with the first person imprisoned in World War I events that arranged a ceasefire at 11am and both sides met on an expansive game . battlefields without firing a shot. Well, for the most part, because it is the Internet and there will always be someone who will spoil everything for everyone.
This is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. At 11 o'clock we stopped fighting. from r / Battlefield
As noted by EA DICE designer Jan David Hassel Twitterat 11 am in Melbourne, the BF1 players on the Australian server stopped fighting only for a moment of complete ruin by a single pilot of a biplane and wielding knives for spoilage (well, I mean, if you do not consider the time ruined before by all teabagging). An offensive knifer appeared in the story of Reddit, where the video stream of the event was published to later apologize, saying that "they upset us that our team is still dying". Great old story.
Although it was as cool as the moment before this stab, I think it really would be important if DICE actually joined him, and maybe he blocked all the bombardments in the background and shooting with weapons on the maps. An incredibly silent server with the accompanying news would be really worth watching.
