The War Log works like this, as games are played throughout the world, the results are posted in a special thread on the forum, then tabulated into a massive spreadsheet. The goal is to see how all of the factions are doing in a specific manner and wage a worldwide, international campaign between the Zenian League and the Alliance of Kurak. The War Log is updated periodically, but only games that were standard book missions and battles between the Zenian League and the Kurak Alliance are shown. Zenian vs Zenian and Kurak vs Kurak are still noted and will appear as data in the end of the year report (January 2015). This War Log began in January 2014 when the new Version 2.0 Firestorm rules came out. Firestorm Armada uses a Battle Log game mechanic to decide the victor of each battle. As the game progresses, your Battle Log will be raised or lowered depending on what is happening on the battlefield. The higher the number the better.
This post is going to discuss the War Log between April 1st, 2014 to May 19th, 2014 and so will be longer than future ones. As new updates become available, the posts will cover the new board updates only.

Sorylians however, hit an all-time low. Dropping into single digits with 8 total net Battle log over the course of 27 games, that's 46 points behind the next highest Kurak race and 226 points behind their faction leader. On average, the poor space lizards have scored less than a third of a point per game played. Ouch.

And look at the Sorylians! They rose up from single digits. Most of these points were from The Waygate's own BigMek SkrapKlaw after a glorious showing at the Cassial Conflict tournament.

At the time of this post, this is the most recent War Log 3724 board. The Terrans have made a comeback to rise to the top of the pecking order for total Battle Log scored by any individual race and their allies the Aquans hold the number two position for Battle Log and the number one slot for average points per game. Sorylians take a breather with no new games reported that week.
We end this report with the Zenian League still winning by 61 points. The Alliance of Kurak has been working hard to close that 154 point gap from the end of April.
Given the excellent performance by the Terrans and Aquans, if the Sorylians can keep climbing, that means real trouble for the Zenian League. The game just had some stat tweaking recently with the new release of the Fleet Manuals, so we shall see if that starts changing the balance.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates on the war as they become available.
