Nation Wars 2018 is the promotional episode in the sixth season StarCrafts.

Plot Edit

The episode starts with a red high templar dancing victoriously on top of the mountain with "NATION WARS V" title engraved on stony arch. He has a trophy beside him, while a red zealot fans him with a leaf. The high templar's cape is stylized as South Korean flag. He is alarmed as purple Mexican zerg swarm and Swedish blue terran army approach, and Brazilian protoss deathball rolls in.

Italian zerglings gallop at the hill and Chinese marines march in large numbers. Danish zealots enter. American zealot slashes the marines off the mountain until he is abducted by Polish viper.

The three races eagerly climb up the mountain while the zealots kick the marine off, and another marine shoots the latter off. German thor crawls through the zergling rush, shoving them from behind, and the medivac dropship assists him to fly faster...until the thor's massive weight causes the ship to just hop up the hill. The red high templar casts feedback to destroy the dropship and uses psionic storm around him.

Canadian hydralisk dances until Dutch reapers grenades him off and continues to speed up the mountain with boosters, dodging from psionic lightning bolts. One of the reapers collide with force field cast by Taiwanese sentry.

The three races are still climbing amid the air units shooting some of the ground units off. On the peak of the championship mountain, the high templar, carrying the trophy, is met by a reaper aiming the weapon at him, followed by a changeling, disguised as the red zealot all along, also aiming the weapon. The templar raises his hands, dropping the prize. The camera quickly zooms out, revealing armada of air units from different nations targeting him. Countless mutalisks appear on both sides, void rays charge their prismatic beam, and battlecruiser charges a yamato cannon (The overlord, however, excretes a creep). At the same time, the templar prepares his psionic storm.

The camera then tilts upward to reveal the date of "StarCraft II: Nation Wars V".
