Alas, my reading remains quite confined to Vicky II, even if I have managed to get in a pair of HOI4 AARs. My apologies again to the many writAARs writing brilliant stuff outside the Vic II forum. In my Vicky votes, I've tried to keep to stuff that's updated regularly in the eligibility period.

HoI IV

1. A Royal Prerogative - A UK AAR by @Le Jones

Brilliant stuff. Narrative AARs usually aren't my first choice, but this one grabs me in a way that makes me think of A Special Providence, which is the very opposite of a mean feat.

2. The American Phoenix: The History of the United States in the Second American Civil War and the Second Weltkrieg by @Kautz

Quite simply, well-written and very enjoyable. I only play Kaiserreich in Darkest Hour, but Civil War II is a pain for me to navigate whenever I try on anything but the most lenient settings, so it's nice to see someone spin a good yarn about what, so far, looks a competent handling of it.


Victoria II

1.
Echoes of A New Tomorrow: Life After Revolution in the Commonwealth of Britain by @DensleyBlair

It's just so good. So good. Redadder alone would earn it top billing this time but, my God, it's so good. I also managed to recently cause in Densley the same reaction much of Echoes causes in me, so sheer envy at the author's skill at doing so no longer clouds my judgement.

2. Jihad on the Savannah: A Vic2 Serious Sokoto AAR by @mad orc

My praise from H1 remains the same. The amount of research our dear orc of unsound mind must do for this boggles the mind.

3. Annuntio Vobis: A Papal History of Italy by @slothinator

I didn't nominate slothinator for WritAAR of the Week for nothing!

4. Here Dwells God - A Jewish Poland AAR, Part Three by @Tommy4ever

Absolutely blistering pace of updates for such fine work. I'm usually sceptical of megacampaigns, enjoying AARs where things are familiar, but clearly different to OTL, as I do. This easily overcame that scepticism.

Honourable mention; Empire for Liberty, which topped the bill last time, but had the least updates in the eligibility period, which was about the only way I could think of to make the final cut. As last time, I urge people to get thee to the Vic II AAR subforum; it was a little quieter this quarter, but what is there all remains top notch!

If the Vicki 2 vote for RAAI needs changing let me know, but it was a community project so I'm really not voting for myself. If that was allowed I would have a full slate in the Other category. ;)

Updated to fill out the CK3 list.

The next three places were shared by @castlera , @ChicagoZohan and @Snap Wilson with four votes each!


Second up is Crusader Kings II, which had 17 AARs with votes! Nine of which got 1 vote each. The winners were @Dunaden and @Eurasia , whom both got seven votes, followed by @JabberJock14 with 6 votes!

Many congratulations to all our winners, and thank you to everyone who voted – not just for my work, but in general. The ACAs quite literally do not happen without votes, and here's to Q4 coming out even stronger. Naturally, biggest thanks go to @Nikolai for tirelessly working to get everything organised.

Some time now for celebrations, and then maybe the usual debrief? My first thought is that we really need to do more to get votes in from CK3. Considering its wild popularity, second-placing AARs getting only four votes a piece might suggest a problem with depth of engagement.. That said, it's encouraging to see that CK2 is holding out strong. 17 different AARs getting a nod is great.

I wonder if CK3 would get more participation if it was not disconnected from the rest of AARland for some reason.
