Marching Through Blue Georgia
- May 14, 2009
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Come on, I almost failed highschool maths (twice, by the way) but even I can count from 1 to 2! And yeah, I looked at the list of previous winners. Heh, in fact, I've looked at quite a lot of posting histories. I took it very seriously and, for something related to entertainment and generally a part of life where levity would be much more in order, it was very painful to have to choose.it is called Fan of the Week and not fans of the week, so I'd think not. Has either candidate won the award before? If one has and one hasn't, choose the one who hasn't won it.
Thank you, the same to you!Congrats Newbie and Happy New year to you and everyone reading!
Oh my dear boy that's nothing. There are people who have been here at AARland for decades. AARland is like the not-so-exclusive equivalent of the Pythagoreans; you cannot truly leave it until you die.If you look at the guy's posting history, it's replete with comments in people's AARs all over the place, across many games. I counted his production in the last month, for example. He scored over sixty posts in thirty different AARs in addition to nominating an AAR spotlight. Knowing from experience the no comments plague (in the summer or the months before it, as I recall), I imagine that a single comment, especially from someone with somewhat of a name in the forums, can keep you going. Multiply it by 30 and, according to the law of great numbers, there is a good chunk of probability that a couple of AARs were saved from discontinuation by a solitary author. I suppose he must have a certain sense of mission, taking the responsibility on his shoulders for keeping th e community going, or at least this is the impression I'm getting (perhaps in a synergy with how he knows comments to be so important from the writer's side). Incidentally (as this had no bearing on the awarding decision), he will be an interesting moment to see his own choice of the award next week, with all the knowledge of the AAR scene he must have from following so many AARs. He probably knows other deserving people as he must have come across many.
That's like my fourth favourite Blackadder line ever.My most sincere contrafibularities
Yeah, I know, but most of them have already got their awards, yourself included. Like I said, I went through some posting histories etc., while I'm mostly limited to CK2 (I was only a one-time EU3 player and EU2 was so long ago, as was CK1).Oh my dear boy that's nothing. There are people who have been here at AARland for decades.
Hehe, we'll see. I can say I'm getting involved and noticing myself spending much more time on it than I'd have predicted.AARland is like the not-so-exclusive equivalent of the Pythagoreans; you cannot truly leave it until you die.
God damnit! Always second, never first
All right, joking Aside, congratulations Dovahkiing! Seems like it was a very much deserved winner (Also Congratulations to all previous winners )
Thank you very much for the consideration and the kind words NewbieOne, it's a pleasure to follow your AAR
My most sincere contrafibularities
A very deserving winner, and someone I would also like to thank for supporting my attempts at AARs.
Thank you all, and, A_Dane, I'm sure your time will come soon!Congratulations Dovahkiing! Keep commenting!

The mods like to keep everything nice and uniform, so announcing a winner on Sunday would probably be best. I suppose there would be little harm in waiting until Monday or Tuesday though, as long as you nominate somebody by the end of the week... I for one hate to see these awards lie dormant for months on end.Anyway, do I have to nominate my successor on Sunday or can I wait until next Wednesday (7 days from now)?
