Because, sometimes, the best things in life needs to be highlighed and brought to the attention of people who may not have had the chance to see it. As far as EU1 AAR's, this is tops in my book.

Hmm, I just started reading this over again, and I have noticed something. I never really realized it, but my Steppes AAR style is based heavily on the strategic portions of this AAR (not the RPG style). I guess this had more effect on me than I thought :D !

Be sure, Ariel, that peolpe will continue to read "this old thing" even in 2004 and later. Even today, I consider it a masterpiece, and enjoying it when I have time to re-read it.

Still great after years

I first read this thread two years ago. It's great to see it's still appreciated.

It certainly beats Eastenders:rofl: :rofl:
