• 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

"Thanks for the votes! However, the limit for one game is four votes. :("



Ok, sorry @Bullfilter, then I will move Unbreakable China on the fourth place, since you already have a nomination in my hierarchy. @Nikolai, then I will edit the vote.

Not counting @TheButterflyComposer , who still have reserved their post. Time to get going Butterfly, or it is tge sharp stick! I’m sure @El Pip can help. ;) Less than two days left now!

Allright! The votes are counted, the winners decided, the show is on! :D

First up is EU4, which only got three AARs selected this time. I had expected more, actually. @RossN won with two votes, with @quicksabre and @WolframS67 sharing second place.


Then is CK2, as always very vibrant and full of nominees. First place was shared by no less than five writAARs; @Fiftypence , @Dunaden , @JSB217118 , @JabberJock14 and @Eurasia . :eek:

Next up is Victoria II, which got as many AARs nominated as CK3! There is still life in the old lady! :D First place belongs to @BigBadBob , closely followed by @DensleyBlair and third place shared by @slothinator and @El Pip , the latter as part of a community colloboration. :)

HoI4 only got five AARs nominated, less than the predecessor, curiously enough. First place goes here to @Le Jones , closely followed by @stnylan and then on third place @noobeless .

Out in space with Stellaris we didn't actually get that many votes, but the votes that came was widely spread out, with only the winner, @Chilango2 getting more than one vote! :eek:


And lastly we have the "other" category, which contained 6 AARs this time, of which 3 is from Imperator: Rome. Which surely must be all the AARs active for that game or close to it. At least it says something about the quality of writing there, I guess. The winner was @El Pip , followed by @Argead33 on second and shared third for the rest. :)


And that was all, folks! I'll see you again for Q1 2021 in a couple of months! :D

A big THANK YOU to all of you, who cast their votes for the "HOI3 old boy's" AARs, a game keeping up his charm for over a decade, and counting. That is an eternity in game terms!
I am grateful to those choosing my France AAR among their favourite stories, and to @Nikolai for taking his time to organize the 2020 contest.
Last but not least, congratulations to this year's winner, @Wraith11B , who has put lots of well appreciated work into his excellent AAR.

I'm afraid this one is not eligible, as it was not active between summer 2020 and january 2021. :(

Gosh darn it.

Congrats to all the winners and nominees! Thank you, @Nikolai for running the whole show!


And thank you to everyone who voted for For All We Have and Are! It's an honour just to be nominated when the forum's putting out content as high quality as Vicky II is right now, but to win!? Hoo, boy.

A big THANK YOU to all of you, who cast their votes for the "HOI3 old boy's" AARs, a game keeping up his charm for over a decade, and counting. That is an eternity in game terms!
I am grateful to those choosing my France AAR among their favourite stories, and to @Nikolai for taking his time to organize the 2020 contest.
Last but not least, congratulations to this year's winner, @Wraith11B , who has put lots of well appreciated work into his excellent AAR.
I'd like to echo everyone, thank you to Nikolai for running these. Always good to see things progress with the fans! Another hearty thanks to Alex for his congratulations, and a humble thanks to everyone who voted!

Many congratulations to all the winners. I'm glad to see some first timers in the top three's. To have new entrants challenge the 'established' names shows that there continues to be an influx of qualitative work on the forum. Thanks to all participants, thanks @Nikolai . Go HOI3!

Thank you for everyone who voted, I am of course delighted to once again win the most prestigious and respected category in these awards - Other. My congratulations to those who have won in the lesser categories, it was still an achievement (of sorts) so don't feel too disappointed in yourselves. ;) :)

And of course thanks to @Nikolai for organising these things and ensuring we don't end up with another 2019 Q2 ACA incident.
