Narrated by Bluesox

  1. Intro

    Welcome to an especially momentous installment of the r/Civ Civilization Battle Royale! I am former Power Ranker and analyst /u/bl…

  2. PR Slide

    Brazil stays at #1, and have chosen to take on Kruger to eliminate any threat from him reclaiming the top spot. Whether he can com…

  3. Tile Accurate Map

    As always, we get another fantastic tile-accurate map from resident cartographer and Iceland supporter /u/DerErlenkonig. New addit…

  4. Melon Map

    The gorgeous City and Puppet Map, provided by /u/Spherical_Melon, shows how quickly the Boers annexed their new Asian holdings. I’…

  5. 1

    With all the fervor over the clash in Africa, let us not forget that other conflicts still rage across the cylinder, or at least t…

  6. 2

    More importantly, though, Vietnam also puts their war with Sibir on hold to focus on the greater threat at hand. Looking at the di…

  7. 3

    Brazil takes Colombo from the Boers! This city has been criminally overlooked in the past. This conquest is instrumental in overco…

  8. 4

    Here we see how the end of Open Borders with the Boers hasn’t completely neutered the Brazilian assault. Kruger’s Asian holdings w…

  9. 5

    Turning toward the Middle East, the brilliance of Brazil’s X-COM bias becomes apparent. They are able to quickly return many men t…

  10. 6

    In Iberia, Brazil pummel what long has been (and perhaps still is) the cylinder’s most populous city of Porto, at a whopping 82.5…

  11. 7

    In the Sahara, we get a look at just how devastating the eviction from Africa was to Pedro’s chances of assured victory. Nearly ev…

  12. 8

    Ah, paradiso! By this point, native Brazilians have lived for generations without an enemy unit in sight. I doubt they’ll be seein…

  13. 9

    YEEEEEAHHHH! Our bloodlust continues to be satiated with the incineration of Yeji, giving the Buccaneer mech spider a luscious tan…

  14. 10

    It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the Kongolese heartland. It’s been said before, the but the effect of the Great Famine is p…

  15. 11

    Kruger is taking it from all sides, as a new shade of orange dons Madagascar. Heidelberg, which I assume is the production center…

  16. 12

    Nowhere is safe! Even the icy outpost of Looma is suffering damage as what I believe to be Vietnam takes a couple of potshots from…

  17. 13

    As expected, Persepolis is under Brazilian control, but it doesn’t appear to last long. Looks like Kruger rushed garrisons to all…

  18. 14

    Either Anuradhapura flipped in the last turn or it was nuked, leaving it at half the citizens from when we last saw it. That’s of…

  19. 15

    We finally get a view of the former Mughal homeland, a key region in this war. Boer fans should rejoice at this sight. There are 9…

  20. 16

    And just like that, Persepolis returns to Boer control. Despite Tosont Sengel and Ecbatana falling to Pedro, Kruger seems to be de…

  21. 17

    Porto is firmly within Brazilian control, and it appears Braga and Coimbra are soon to follow. With only ranged naval units at the…

  22. 18

    Fort-de-France continues to circle the drain, and it appears that Isit has flipped back and forth since the last time we saw it. N…

  23. 19

    On the back page of the daily news, Natural Heritage Sites fails to pass yet again. Turning to more prescient matters, Brazil has…

  24. 20

    Citizens of the cylinder decide they would rather pray to their own gods instead of taking catechism, and tell Australia to prompt…

  25. 21

    Kruger’s defense force around Kalumnai has fled east for some reason, and it appears that Colombo has flipped again. That might ex…

  26. 22

    Further north, Brazil has tightened the screws on Agra by taking the city of Fatehpur Sikri. Just peeking out at the top of the sc…

  27. 23

    On the other hand, Artashat is finally starting to crack. It’s too little too late, as Kruger has sent sufficient reinforcements t…

  28. 24

    Minimap hawks have surely noticed by now that Carthage has taken on a fresh coat of paint. Somehow Pedro was able to slide in and…

  29. 25

    It’s hard to tell whether these cites at 50% were nuked, flipped, or just plain air raided. No matter the reason, Iceland is holdi…

  30. 26

    A moderate fleet of Brazilian troops are allowed passage through Australian waters by the Korean blockade. OCP members cylinder-wi…

  31. 27

    Persepolis once again changes hands, returning to Brazil. Ecbatana and Tosont Sengel appear to have flipped as well, but more impo…

  32. 28

    Jerusalem has been hit hard, but Sweden provides no open passage to claim the city, much to the chagrin of the Brazilian paratroop…

  33. 29

    Sliding westward, we see that Kruger has taken Carthage while Pedro claims Coimbra for Brazil. Where the sea was once littered wit…

  34. 30

    And now it becomes painfully clear to Sibir’s supporters why they haven’t been more active in the war. They have no units to send!…

  35. 31

    Here’s the shot I was hoping for. Iceland has once again exceeded expectations and sniped Ka-Ba. I didn’t even see a unit within r…

  36. 32

    What? No! That’s not how this works! That’s not how any of this works. Actually, I should know by now that it’s exactly how this w…

  37. 33

    I wonder how this declaration is going to affect relations with Brazil. They are clearly not someone you want holding a grudge aga…

  38. 34

    We finally get to see what more astute observers have noticed already, and that’s the capture of Galle by Brazil. Better yet, they…

  39. 35

    Kuchum Khan finally makes moves, stealing Ecbatana AND Ghazni. Now we’re talking. It appears Artashat has flipped back and forth s…

  40. 36

    Boer fans rejoice as Epidauros is brought back into the fold with minimal casualties. Arretium also appears to have flipped in the…

  41. 37

    In the meantime, Casablanca flipped and was subsequently captured by Iceland. For all my trash-talking at the start of this Part,…

  42. 38

    In the icy reaches of the southern Indian Ocean, Looma and Wulungarra both appear to have taken bombs to the face as well. I’m sus…

  43. 39

    If that’s not enough, the Kimberley are actually attacking a city directly! Middelburg is down to 8 citizens, implying it took a n…

  44. 40

    Ecbatana and Ghazni flip back to the Boers, but Artashat stays under Pedro’s grip. Nearly every city in the region looks destined…

  45. 41

    Ani (which I can never hear without chuckling, because it sounds like a plural form of anus) is now orange. To the south, workers…

  46. 42

    Casablanca returns to Brazilian control, and with it Nuevitas. I like to see Iceland and Brazil pick each other up every time one…

  47. 43

    Holy shit. Vietnam finally does something, and it’s something HUGE! They just took Agra, adding +1 production to every specialist…

  48. 44

    Brazil takes Ghazni from the Boers in exchange for Artashat, but can’t seem to reclaim Ecbatana. Gyumri is near zero health, but n…

  49. 45

    Carthage is once again Icelandic, but a shell of its former self, as is Arretium. This really has been a fair fight on both sides,…

  50. 46

    A Finnish Advanced Destroyer uses a mountain to hide from a Kimberley death squad on the other side of India. He finds an open rad…

  51. 47

    Meanwhile, Vietnam lost Agra only to see it quickly picked up by Brazil. Way to go, guys. This is a huge boon for Pedro. With enou…

  52. 48

    Brazil loses Ghazni to the Boers, but picks up Ecbatana, Gyumri, and Bukhara to compensate. Ecbatana looks to flip again, but that…

  53. 49

    Ingolfúr’s beachhead is now in place. Olympia has been stripped from the Boers. A detachment of Brazilian units appears to be swa…

  54. 50

    Carthage is orange again, but Goa has been taken by Brazil. This leaves Braga as the sole remaining Boer city in Europe. Looking a…

  55. 51

    This is an interesting development. Who could Morgan be plotting against here? Since their only conflict is against the Kimberley…

  56. 52

    What? When did this happen? Djarindjin is now Icelandic! I don’t remember seeing any units nearby that could take it. Oh, I see th…

  57. 53

    Kupartiya now belongs to Brazil, and Kabul to Sibir. Kruger is desperate to reclaim Agra, though, and may be able to extract it fr…

  58. 54

    Ghazni is now grey, Ecbatana has flipped back to Brazil, and Varna has taken a serious beating. It seems to have flipped a couple…

  59. 55

    With Iceland out of the way, Boer troops are able to push farther up the front lines. Well, what’s left of them anyway. Has Kruger…

  60. 56

    Braga still holds strong, but Ciudad del Carmen and Basse Terre have been incorporated into the Brazilian Empire, as has Quarzazat…

  61. 57

    Brazil also holds Istakhr, and is pushing toward Yeji and gao. Kruger would be wise to call a truce now, if only for ten turns so…

  62. 58

    The other Basse-Terre has been claimed by Brazil, and Braga has finally been captured as well. The Boers have officially been evic…

  63. 59

    Gao has also become green, with Nyeni soon to follow. Brazil is absolutely storming Africa right now, and surely racking up immens…

  64. 60

    I’m not sure whether we’re looking at a stagnant blockade or a terrifying armada of reinforcements here. Either way, it would bene…

  65. 61

    Um, why are all the Inuit units concentrated in the north? Is another Inuit-Iceland war on the horizon? If so, they got out of the…

  66. 62

    Somebody got within range of the Kimberley homeland. Whether it was Kruger, Kekkonen or Morgan is unclear. How the Kimberley have…

  67. 63

    This is interesting. It looks like Sweden and the Inuit have used their mutual hatred for Iceland to become buddies, and they want…

  68. 64

    Wow. It’s a good thing this shot was included, because it will surely have the greatest effect on the Power Rankings. The Boer hea…

  69. 65

    Kruger takes back Basse-Terre, but with the previous shot it looks like all of his units are concentrated around Utique. Pedro has…

  70. 66

    Yeji is added to Pedro’s collection, completely liberating the entirety of western Africa from the Boers. Despite his best efforts…

  71. 67

    I think it’s safe to say now that the Boer military consists mainly of Cybersubs. On the ground, there are more workers at the fro…

  72. 68

    Uh oh. Prep your F keys, folks. It looks like we’re getting one last look at Finland before they bite the bullet. Their demise wil…

  73. 69

    Batticaloa is being battered by bombs, but blessed by benevolence from... Vietnam? Was Finland at war with Vietnam? When did that…

  74. 70

    Pedro has seized Nicomedia as well. On the plus side, Dvin has bounced back since being nuked. But for some reason Sweden has deci…

  75. 71

    Panormus is no longer orange, and we can unequivocally say that the Boers have been eradicated from Europe. Their units are lookin…

  76. 72

    Pedro takes Jenne, and rushes straight for Ejura to cut off the former Carthaginian core. Saguntum looks to fall soon, and Tangier…

  77. 73

    If there was any doubt, there’s PLENTY more where that came from. Pedro could easily do to Sweden what he just did to the Boers, b…

  78. 74

    He did it! He finally did it! Kruger has recovered the nuclear launch codes and opened Pandora’s Box. Fatehpur Sikri is the first…

  79. 75

    Wow. Not only Samarkand, but Persepolis and Ecbatana as well. This is mind-boggling progress from Pedro. In twelve turns, he has c…

  80. 76

    Brazil captures Tarentum, and continues to batter Tangier and Saguntum. Kruger has resorted to pulling Artillery garrisons from ot…

  81. 77

    Natural Heritage Sites fails once more, despite Australia’s best efforts. In other news, we get a glimpse of a nation that knows b…

  82. 78

    Perhaps they’ve set their sights on the sprawling nation of Korea. Having longed for the good old days when nuclear bombs lit up t…

  83. 79

    I suspected it last turn, but didn’t want to get ahead of myself. Kabul definitely was nuked, though. And now Yerevan also glows a…

  84. 80

    Batticaloa is in the black, but nobody seems too eager to actually capture it. Brazil takes Bayulu, and hopscotches over Najran to…

  85. 81

    Remember way back at the beginning when I predicted this area would be a “menacing sea of orange?” I didn’t quite mean it like thi…
