Reading through the AARs like I do so often I've noticed something of a trend. A lot of people...most people I think...post as they play. So they'll play ten years of EU3 or CK2 and then post up the results. The problem with this of course is that the AAR forums are littered with the husks of AARs dead before their time because of save game or PC errors.
And so I wondered, how common is it for someone to play the entire game out before writing their AAR. I did it with my last one since I needed details of the past to write about the 'present', but does anyone else do this? Should more people do it, or do you find that it robs you of the ability to remember the start of the game?
