And why the Hell not?! I might be partial to novel-style narratives, but I can still recognise a Great AAR when I see one and yours is it!Rensslaer said:Truly incredible! I shouldn't be doing so well.
Maybe if we tie, we can ALL take the award -- We'll call it the "Triple Crown"!Fulcrumvale said:WOW: as of right now we have a 3 way tie between The Eagles of Avalon, Fu Manchu, and Fire Warms the Northern Lands. :wacko:
That might be the depressing truth, because there has to be some explanation. CK is every bit as well written as the other candidates. One would think that the game "of origin" so to speak should not matter that much.Rensslaer said:I think, perhaps, there are not as many CKers around this Gen. Disc. Board, as has been noted before.

I think this is one of the limitations of a final round for something like this. Ultimately, I don't know if finding a winner will tell us anything more than we already knew -- tremendous talent in each forum.anonymous4401 said:The point was that the popularity and well-knownness of the author should ideally have not mattered at all, and that the four works were to be held directly against each other. Though I suppose I shouldn't be surprised...

Actually, I think all four of us have a deep and loyal following.The Yogi said:Well, on the plus side, it's oft been said that the following of the HOI2 forum dwarfs that of the others, and yet the Victoria and EU2 AARs have as many votes (or more) than the HOI2 AAR, so maybe it's just CK that has a malus.
