• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

The ACAs are back, this time on track! It is hosted under the supervision of me, your friendly AAR fan Nikolai.

This time around you can vote for any AAR that had an update between July 1st, 2020 and September 30th, 2020 (inclusive). In other words, this ACA will cover Q3 2020.

Voting will start now and end in about five weeks, at 20.00 CEST Sunday November 1st.

You may nominate up to four AARs for each of the following games:

Crusader Kings II
Crusader Kings III
Europa Universalis IV
Victoria II
Hearts of Iron III
Hearts of Iron IV
Stellaris


and up to four additional games in the "Other" category, which includes all other Paradox Development Studio games not mentioned above.

Note: Due to Imperator: Rome being next to dead right now with only five elegible AARs total this time around, it's being included in the Other category from now on. As per request by several postAARs last time, Hearts of Iron III is replacing I:R.

Kindly use the following format:

[Name of game/"other"]
1. AAR name, author, URL
2. AAR name, author, URL
3. AAR name, author, URL
4. AAR name, author, URL

If an URL has already been posted once, there is no need to put it up again.

The deadline for voting is 20.00 CEST Sunday November 1st.

With that said, it is now time for the voting to begin!

- Nikolai, host of the ACAs

Great to see the ACA's back as a regular feature, @Nikolai! Plenty of excellent work this last quarter, and particularly pleasing to see the quality already on display in the CK3 forum. I think this may be my most complete ballot since… 2015?! Great stuff all round! :D

I, for one, am glad about the resurgence of HoI3 into the regular flow of works. There are sufficient ones there that justify its inclusion (clearly to the detriment of I:R, but honestly, I trolled through a bit of that and was disappointed).

Crusader Kings II

1. Before Plantagenet; by Jabberjock
2. Give 'Em the Ol' Basel Razzle-Dazzle; by Green Rice
3. Blut und Schlacht; by Bullfilter
4. Empire of the Bear; by GangsterSynod

Crusader Kings III

1. Gesta Filii Cunerici - The Deeds of the Sons of Cyneric
2. The LARP
3. Norgesveldet 2.0 – A history of the Norwegian kings
4. Again with the Norman Invasion. Story of de Hautevilles.

This section was very hard. I've read every CK3 AAR ever written. How was I to choose?

Europa Universalis IV

1. Italian Ambitions: A Florence AAR; by JerseyGiants88

Not many updates going on here right now. Not many I'm reading, anyway.

Victoria II

1. Echoes of a New Tomorrow: Life after the Revolution in the Commonwealth of Britain; DensleyBlair
2. Annuntio Vobis: A Papal History of Italy; by Slothinator
3. 1901: Essays on the End of the Victorian Era; by BigBadBob
4. Read All About It!; by AARland (featuring El Pip)

Honourable mentions to Jape's short-lived May the Sun Never Set. Please come back. Oh, and (just eeking in past deadline date), The Most Sublime Port by Riotkiller. There's many, many good reads going on in that forum at the moment. Such a joy to see.

Hearts of Iron III

1. Talking Turkey; by Bullfilter
2. Inevitable Defeat (for the last time); by El Pip
3. Der Adler, der Wolf, und die Sonne; by Wraith11B (Beelzebub has a demon set aside for you)
4. "A wehraboo and a hat in charge of Italy"; by Farsky

Whilst I understand Imperator getting removed, I'm not sure HOI3 is the right replacement? These are most of the AARs updated in the time period allowed.

Hearts of Iron IV

1. A Royal Prerogative; by Le Jones
2. Rise of Eagles - A Dream of White Russian Victory; by Henry v. Keiper
3. Make Italy Roman Again!; by defensedefumer
4. The Thorn of the Rose; by stnyland


Other (aka El Pip is now last-man standing in HOI2)

1. The Butterfly Effect (I nearly wrote Composer out of habito_O); by El Pip
2. For King Haakon and the Fjords!; by El Pip
3. Rule Kartago; by Nikolai

As much as I am enjoying have 3/4s of the most important category to myself, I do have to point out that Inevitable Defeat was a HOI3 AAR so you will have to move it across and kick out one of your existing choices. Because surely T&T deserve at least a vote after their swansong?

Almost did the same thing with Thorn of the Rose. Thought it was Vicky 2 because stnylan, and because it really feels like a vick2 AAR.

It only makes the HOI3 tag a bit more suspect. Less than 10 updated in the last four months and one of those was a long runner that just ended. Mind you, HOI2 is now down to two, I think? Splitting the two up into seperare categories just means everyone actively working on one gets an award. Which...may or may not run counter to the spirit of things.

I only added it because of the large interest in adding it last time. If it ends up a problem, I'll remove it next time. :)

All together now!

you put your HOI3 in, you take your HOI3 out:D

Good to see signs of a healthy turnout so far. I’ll do my community duty and put the word out in my AAR thread shortly.

I only added it because of the large interest in adding it last time. If it ends up a problem, I'll remove it next time. :)
I don't necessarily have a problem, since all the remaining HOI3 stuff is good;) but on principle, we probably shouldn't have a system where it garuntees an award for existing.

But it depends on what everyone else thinks.

In the interests of leaving this thread mildly accessible for voting, we should probably postpone this discussion until the inevitable post-mortem thread in November.

That is why I removed I:R actually, as only four AARs had been active in the quarter. Didn’t realize HOI3 only had ten, but that’s still under 50% chance, right? :rolleyes::p

12, but Inevitable Defeat just ended so 11. That is enough for some choice...just. More to the point, if it isn't in the other section, then only imperator and hoi2 are. And there's only 2 frequently updated in that range.
