    The Battle of Eddie Murphy, also known as the Murphy Tech Incident, the Eddie Murphy Massacre, or Bloody Sunday, was a military incident caused by three supposedly new players mounting a military effort against Amyr. The incident is notable for having brought together players from a vast array of nations to pearl the three players, and for having challenged them in an extremely disproportionate way. Even though it was a coalition victory it is seen as a failure of the WorldPolice because of their huge losses.

    Prelude

    Nuts0ni and Zenos11 first joined CivClassic and Eddie Murphy on November 2, 2021. Appearing to be precocious newfriends, the two formed the corporation Murphy Tech, and immediately began producing resources such as XP, bastions, and obsidian. Suspicious of this development, Eddie Murphy investigated the duo, and found that they had constructed a bunker-iceroad network stretching from Pholadelphia to the Southern Pripyat Sea. Alarmed, Eddie Murphy nearly attempted to pearl the group on November 14, 2021, but backed down when Zenos11 provided an alibi: that he had looted an intact Lexington bunker shortly after spawning in, funding his activities with the resulting loot. Eddie Murphy chose not to worry about the situation further, and even taught the players the basics of Civ combat - vault combat included.
    On November 20, MagistraJWilli - who had by this date joined Murphy Tech - pinged several @everyone snitches in Amyr's city, New moon. WNS2 logged on to pearl the player. After attacking MagistraMJWilli WNS2 was pearled and released minutes after. In response to this altercation, Amyr labeled MagistraJWilli as pearl-on-sight in AF-CES. MagistraJWilli's home nation of Eddie Murphy attempted to arrange her extradition, but when MagistraJWilli refused to log on, an alternative deal was struck: MagistraJWilli would not log on for a week.

    Conflict

    On November 21, MagistraJWilli logged on anyway; FKA_Twink quickly located them in an unknown fortification in the sea between the Imperial Federation of Eddie Murphy and Amyr, defended by Zenos11 and Nuts0ni. Stunned and incensed, available AF-CES fighters such as WNS2, yodabird19, and NEBULANDD loaded into a voice chat in Amyr's Discord and plotted the trio's demise.
    Initially, Murphy Tech was not aware of what was going on; though recognizing that their predicament was related to MagistraMJWilli's altercation with WNS2, the three repeatedly pinged yodabird19 in the Eddie Murphy discord in search of information as to the identities of those casing their bunkers.
    The inclusion of Naglafer in the Amyrian voice chat quickly spread the event beyond AF-CES, and many Coalition fighters joined the cause against Murphy Tech. The voice chat in Amyr's Discord ballooned to 30+ participants, and over a dozen fighters converged on Amyr's skybunker to coordinate an attack. In these uncoordinated early stages, five fighters were pearled: yodabird19, Mokotowskie, FKA_Twink, 1drop, and Naglafer. OrangedYT and Goop04 were then pearled attempting to break yodabird19 free, but were swiftly released after oko lied that they were misinformed and that Eddie Murphy was on their side.
    Following five hours of uncoordinated fighting (in which K0mmi, MrDoomBringer, the__druid, ninjajackh12, and toontasker were pearled), all Murphy Tech bunkers were cracked (in the process, yodabird19 was freed) but one: their easternmost, most fortified bunker, in the Southern Pripyat Sea. The fight coalesced around this final bunker. The attacking forces adopted a two-pronged approach, sending one group (Gregy165, NEBULANDD, Troll_Bebek, etc.) to attack the bunker at ground level, and another (1drop, BlueSylvaer, VoteLabour, etc.) to push a skybridge despite the defenders not actually having a skybunker. Gregy165 and NEBULANDD were pearled on the ground team, but after two hours, the skybridge reached and broke the bunker's bastion. The final stage of the conflict centered around the now bastionless and isolated Murphy Tech bunker. Over a dozen fighters, including oko, Ch1pr, BennyZ, Danirague, and WNS2, jumped into the bunker to complete their assault. Amidst this chaos, MagistraMJWilli was banned from CivClassic, she was not pearled. The remaining two - Nuts0ni and Zenos11 - resisted for an additional hour, brewing potions inside their central room concurrently, and pearling yodabird19 and oko after hitting them into their central trench.
    Finally, as the attackers neared the center of the bunker, Zenos11 and Nuts0ni burnt all of their valuables both owned and taken from pearled fighters- and logged out permanently. All 11 remaining pearls at the time - Mokotowskie, FKA_Twink, 1drop, Naglafer, K0mmi, the__druid, ninjajackh12, toontasker, Gregy165, NEBULANDD, and yodabird19 - were freed.
