Looking forward to seeing how this quarter finished up - may provide some good tips for Christmas reading!
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.
@loup99 - who runs this generally - mentioned elsewhere he has been quite busy with end-of-year stuff. I am sure as soon as his schedule un-snarls sufficiently he will tally things up and whatnot.Well it’s now well past the deadline day. Is anyone going to announce the winners?
I really need to catch up and see what happened to your characters! Hopefully this recognition doesn't reveal their existence to someone who shouldn't know of it...Though I feel like a thieving-spy for some reason, I want to thank all who took time out of their days, helped me along and followed my zany-fun. Knowing the high-quality and the time invested in so many AAR-sections, (whew!) not least, the excellent Epics inside HoI3. I was surprised El Gato Negro, Pluma and Fan crept their way into...any visibility. My sincere thanks to all.
Make it Great!
The ACA categories are based upon the latest games released, with the forums with the most activity being those that have their own categories, and the others in a combined category to give them the attention they deserve while not having some categories that would only receive one or two nominations. If we were to split up the "other" category today, it would probably penalise it more than anything else, as HoI3 and DH on their own attract less votes than HOI4 and Stellaris on their own. At the very least that is my personal analysis, and it does tend to vary slightly from quarter to quarter. Furthermore, if any of the "other" games developed by PDS start to get a lot of votes, it would naturally get a dedicated category.I also remain delighted that the HOI3 nominees in 'Other' continues to attract more votes than HOI4 and Stellaris, the voting public continue to show taste and discernment despite the misleading award categories available.
I believe you are getting at something like what the year-enders used to be, but you want them to be quarterly instead/as well, am I right to assume that?Setting that aside, could it be worthwhile in the future to also have awards for AAR-styles? For instance, best narrative award, best history book, etc.? I feel this would give some more attention to what are sometimes less-read formats and avoid only having to compare apples to oranges.
Yeah, more-or-less. Every other quarter could probably work as well, but I think once a year is just too infrequent to get the job done.I believe you are getting at something like what the year-enders used to be, but you want them to be quarterly instead/as well, am I right to assume that?
If I recall correctly, @Nuada Airgetlám intended to host the year-enders last year, but was absent for quite a while (which I have full understanding for) and so they never happened. Are there any plans to attempt it anew this year?
