    So here's the winners etc. We'll put up a discussion thread soon enough so people can have their say about preferred changes/going back to the old voting system etc in that. In general, I'd say the category that has (relatively) disappeared is comedy but then there is a (in my opinion) bit of a lack of comedy AARs that are active on the forum at the moment.

    Anyway, first up, I'd like to thank everyone who voted and all the various authors for helping to publicise this round of the ACAs.

    So .....

    ....

    to the winners:

    Crusader Kings (1/2):

    1 - In the Shadow of Certain Painful Doom by Philo32b (19 votes)
    2 - Norse Kings of England by EstonianZulu (11 votes)
    3 - A very different England: A Godwin AAR by RossN (10 votes)

    EU (1/2/3)

    1 - Historic Inevitability of Epic Failure by Prawnstar (20 votes)
    2 - Baghdad in the Sky with Diamonds by mayorqw (9 votes)
    2 - Descent into Madness by Avindian (9 votes)


    HOI (1/2/3)

    1 - Carnage al Dente by CptEasy (14 votes)
    1 - Last Man and Shilling by Saithis (14 votes)
    2 - Germany Tutorial - take 2 by misterbean (7 votes)
    2 - Wehrmacht News and World Report by Alfred Packer (7 votes)

    AGEOD

    Other

    I miss the categories to be honest. The relatively niche categories are more likely to be overwhelmed by the more popular gameplay AARs. Personally I'd rather see 3 categories; comedy, narrative/history book and gameplay.

    Congrats to the winners, and a big thanks to Loki for running it.

    We'll come back to this with a suggestion thread and try and put some info into that to allow some informed choices. But if we went back to 4 winners (which is what the old system had) in each of the main game categories (Ck/EU/HOI/V) then 4-5 narrative AARs (there are some ties for 4th place) make it onto the list of winners. In truth I think if you fold narrative into History Book (which is in many ways a logical pairing as a lot of AARs straddle the 2), you'd bury narrative AARs completely.

    on a 4 winner layout - Valour of the North Star (def Narrative) & Stuff of Kings (poss narrative poss HB) tied for 4th place in the CK category and in Victoria quite a few narratives tied at 4th - So far From God, Laws not Men and Novum Romanum - so that alone might solve the problem.
    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    I second this; I never quite understood the separation between narrative and history book anyway (especially since most history books are narratives ).
