After reading these forums a bit I noticed a large amount of fan made groups. Some of them based on a mod (AGC-EEP, CORE...) but some of them based on nothing else than a group of likely minded people (HOI worst players club, etc...). And as these mod-groups (Mod as in not moderator but a modification) drive more historic and more directed gameplay it seems that they are the majority, purely through their larger scale of publicity. And as such I would like to bring forward us who believe in freedom of gameplay.
1.Driving the cause of a well balanced and independent game engine, that is able to represent the issues currently represented by events.
2.Assuring the freedom of using "directed gameplay" (AI files, events, hardcodings..) to everyone. Thus we endorse a larger variety of options.
How do I join?
Just type the line of "Member of the ahistoric association" to your signature, and type in something to this thread to make you a fully acknowledged and thus eligible member.
What is the purpose for this group? To oppose CORE?
No. We do not oppose CORE, we just hold the voice of those who do not want to play a "historic game" but those who want to begin a scenario and within some lines (Game engine, map and technologies at the moment) to play a game of their liking.
Cool ahistoricism! Can we do laser pistols?
No. Again this is not intended as a mod of any kind, just a "political party", a faction to be reckoned. We understand that Paradox boards are not a democracy, but we also know that games are made by the rules set by us, the gamers, the buyers, and as such we are here for publicity, ie. To show that people like us exist. We endorse different technology trees as long as they can be accessed by all nations freely. (No special techs as per nation or anything "forced-history" like that.)

(Moderators: Feel free to add members as/if they appear. Also if possible in any way, pin this topic to ensure visibility of our cause.)
When I speak of "we" I mean the community, so if you beg to differ on some point, please do. I claim no expert in any field, nor do I even claim "leadership" in this group. I am merely trying to gain support for my point of view.
