Hell yeah El Pip - the only guy who's commented my AAR from the start!
For a reactionary, he's alright. Congrats!
I am therefore officially rooting for a Franco-German strike on Russia, prompting the Soviets to strike back with their hitherto secret nukes. This will serve as a salutary lesson to all involved and leave everyone suitably chastened.-El Pip
Great War: The American Front: Can the United States defeat Britain and its Confederate Lackeys? Or will the CSA defend its freedom against the Yankee Menace?
I'm really sick of the megathreads
Fan of the Week? Again? This is almost more unexpected than winning it the first time round.
So what's happened since last time? Well out of the four AARs I mentioned 'British interests; British honour; British obligations and Stiff Upper Lip: A Terribly British History appear to have died a death but at least Crossfires and Against all Odds are still going, and going strong I may add.
On BritishImperial's nomination; well considered, polite, and interesting I'll thank him for the first, leave the third to other's judgement and strive to always be the second, even while having vibrant debates with communist revolutionaries like Faeelin.
So I thank you all for your kind comments, heartily recommend Striker475 excellent Past Decisions: Documents from the United States Archives, 1967-1984 and onwards and the still criminally under-commented on The Last Mission by TheExecuter and leave you with my nomination for this week's fan;
I wondered over this one a while, I knew who I wanted to give it to I just wasn't sure if they'd appreciate it! But what the hell here goes; for well thought out and incisive comments that, irregular though they may be, clearly show someone who reads updates then has a mull over them before replying I nominate merrick. He may not comment often but sometimes quality is better than quantity.
The Butterfly Effect: A British AAR - "An an insane project of terrifying detail". The finest slower-than-real-time AAR on the board. Updated 16th June with hot and spicy dirigible action and all the exploding airships you could ever ask for.
Inevitable Defeat - Slovakia '44 - The award winning characters Tiso and Tuka attempt to save Slovakia from defeat and destruction. Winner of an AARland Choice Comedy Award. The Slovak, for want of a better word, economy is feeling the strain of total war while being a German puppet. Updated 19th July 2014.
Furious Vengeance - A 1944 UK AAR - My actual best work - Winner of the 2009 Iron HeAARt Award
