  • Hearts of Iron IV Survey

    Help us make HoI IV better by sharing your experiences in this 5 minute survey


  • 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

I had a heck of a time coming up with a successor; I subscribe to a lot of threads and it's hard to choose just one. The author might not be too happy to get this award, since he insists he's mediocre, but I would beg to differ. Congratulations to fellow Ohio native homy_dog34 for How to be Completely Mediocre in Divine Wind!

What is this I don't even....

But, well, this award is really redundant, considering the mediocre thing. I think you screwed your head on the wrong way, Avindian.

Of course, maybe it's just the fact that I'm posting this at 2:30 in the morning. Whatever, thanks, I suppose. Maybe I should make myself a trophy!

Edit: Sometimes, I hate my username. That's an "m". IM NOT HORNY, OK?

Double Edit: Oh great, now I have to choose a replacement. Wonderful. SO MANY CHOICES

Thank you, everyone!
And so, I present with great pleasure, PrawnStar's AAR The Historic Inevitability of Epic Failure
This AAR, as like his others is ridiculously skilled, and well though-out.

Congratulations!

One should send a copy of this to every power-hungry dictator dreaming of world-domination. A lot to learn here: how to avoid being the badboy while subjugating whole continents for example. ;)

Congrats PrawnStar, I didn't even know one could do half of these things in EU III. A great AAR!

Thanks to all for the recognition :)

I'm not doing too well following AARs at the moment I'm afraid but there is one writer whose work I enjoy immensely because of the quality of the writing. For a game and a scenario few of us are familiar with both gameplay concepts and straegic manouevres are clearly explained and vividly portrayed.

Please enjoy Bornego's Once Upon a Time ... the Revolution - A Red Grand Campaign PBEM
