Chain of Command Multiplayer - Developers vs. The Hearts of Iron Community
It's Hearts of Iron IV's 4th anniversary on June 6th, and to celebrate we're holding a multiplayer event for the ages.
On June 10-12 a team of four content creators, backed by the wider Hearts of Iron community, will do battle with a team of four players from the HOI Dev team.
For the first time in an official multiplayer event, you can participate, helping to shape the community teams strategy and choosing its leader.
It's going to be a chain-of-command stream, meaning that all each team will be playing one nation; Democratic UK for the Community team, and Imperial Germany for the Devs.
The Developers won't just be playing against the four players controlling Britain, but also a 'Virtual House of Commons' made up of ordinary Hearts of Iron players from all kinds of different communities.
The Virtual House of Commons will, via Discord, choose which of the four players will become 'Prime Minister', discuss and vote on strategy, war declarations and other major decisions, and if they are unhappy with how the game goes... vote to sack the Prime Minister and appoint another.
How You Can Take Part
In order to take part in the Virtual House of Commons, you'll need to be either be nominated by one of the participating Hearts of Iron Communities, or win election on Hearts of Iron's official communities like Facebook, Twitter, Steam or here on the Paradox Forums.
If you would like to be a part of this, you can nominate yourself using this form: https://pdxint.at/3eMr947
You can, if you like, write a little bit about your prowess at HOI and how you'd be good if chosen, and then from the nominations we will create a shortlist of candidates. Everyone on the forums will then be able to vote for who should represent the Forums.
The election will take place on June 5th 2020, for 24 hours. We'll do another forum post with a voting link then.
If elected, you'll be able to join a Discord server and take part in votes and discussions from Sunday 7th June, through to the end of the event on Thursday 12th June. We don't anticipate this will take up a lot of time, but obviously that depends on what the house wants to discuss and vote on!
