  4. PR Slide

    As for the Power Rankings, Kruger retains his iron grip on the #1 position. It would take a lot of surprises for him to lose this…

    We open today with a shot of the Siberian/Swedish war front, where Sibir has claimed Antioch on the Black Sea while Sweden has fli…

  6. 2

    Here’s the Indus River valley, the current front in the Boer/Vietnam war. Eagle-eyed viewers pointed out last part what is highlig…

  7. 3

    On the other Vietnamese war front, against Australia, things haven’t changed much. Aussie forces have Thi Li Bi Nai at the moment,…

  8. 4

    Meanwhile, this part of the Pacific is relatively quiet, with most of Australia’s units having been sent to the front. Also visibl…

  9. 5

    Australia’s Chinese beachhead has a serious supply of units, primarily Biodrones. Cities on both sides of this war are frequently…

  10. 6

    What was a war front a few parts back between Vietnam and Sibir is now relatively quiet, besides the radioactivity on the mountain…

  11. 7

    Sibir’s busy elsewhere, flipping Nicaea, at the edge of eastern Europe’s citadel pile-up. It’ll definitely flip back, but the tech…

  12. 8

    On the other end of the front, Jyvaskyla North and Stalingrad seem secure as Kuchum’s troops aim for Linkoping.

  13. 9

    Tampere falls, as Sibir pushes further and further. Note the horde of Siberian workers trailing behind the front, cleaning up pill…

  14. 10

    Vietnam is struggling on their main front against Australia, but that doesn’t mean the Trung Sisters can’t still hit Parkes where…

  15. 11

    That Vietnamese army group that massed near Mazar-i-Sharif has failed to hold the city, and is instead trying to stall the Boers a…

  16. 12

    Here’s a view of the nearly-empty core of Sweden. Those Cybersubs won’t help you defend against a land invasion, Gustavus. (Bonus:…

  17. 13

    A rare shot of Iceland’s home island reveals the influence of Big Carrier on the nation’s navy. At least there’s a couple of Advan…

  18. 14

    Apparently Pedro has decided to take Carnival on tour this year, as Brazilian units overflow into Icelandic and Boer-held Iberia.…

  19. 15

    In fact, the Brazilian military has spilled well into orange Africa, as far as Old Kongo. It’s not just a handful of units, either…

  20. 16

    Our spies have given us a report about the pirate haven of Port-au-Prince, apparently attempting to build a hotel and rebrand itse…

  21. 17

    Kandahar, on the other hand, has been flipped between Vietnam and the Boers down to 3 population. The few survivors are apparently…

  22. 18

    The Brazilian carpet in its natural habitat, demonstrating that South America is indeed 100% full, hence the overflow overseas. Wh…

  23. 19

    The Buccs are hard at work trying to carpet to match, although the shortage of land tiles in the Caribbean means their carpet is m…

  24. 20

    The Brazilian carpet’s not just leaking to the Old World, but also to Inuit North America. The Inuit are apparently struggling to…

  25. 21

    Icelandic-occupied Germany looks pretty barren. Ingolfur ought to be careful not to let his capital-filled territory become an eas…

  26. 22

    Boer North Africa is full of optimized tiles, but it’s nearly empty of units, other than workers in Old Carthage and Brazilian vac…

  27. 23

    Vietnam flips Tianjin, although it’s not likely to last. Every city here looks liable to be flipped a few dozen more times.

  28. 24

    This Vietnamese fleet won’t be able to do much but harass the ex-Kimberley homeland, but the sentiment is there. Rubibi, once Jand…

  29. 25

    Kaneohe: beautiful, serene, and peaceful. If you can handle the crowds, it’s a lovely vacation spot. Kamehameha would rather stay…

    And this slide, as it turns out, is the stuff of nightmares for Vietnam fans: Hanoi’s in the red, with embarked Aussie melee units…

  31. 27

    The Vietnamese troops in the Indus valley have fallen back to Gaur. Kandahar is barely being defended, and the flow of Boer troops…

  32. 28

    Nicaea’s Swedish at the moment, but Siberian reinforcements are coming through Gothenburg to flip it. Vaasa also looks quite vulne…

  33. 29

    Up to the north, it seems Gustavus has thrown every possible unit at the Tampere/Linkoping front as possible. It seems to be holdi…

  34. 30

    Northern Sibir, a bit east from the front, shows Kuchum’s army of workers en route. There’s also a new little settlement, Surgut.…

  35. 31

    Vaasa flips, and Minsk and Nicaea are extremely open targets. Sweden may be holding out at the northern end of the front, but furt…

  36. 32

    The Swedish Organic Infantry are assembling in Old Poland, and Sibir’s troops down here seem a tad short-handed. Also, Boer carrie…

  37. 33

    A nearly-dead Boer BioTrooper pounds on the gates of Gaur. Vietnam only has a handful of units on this front, and they’re not doin…

  38. 34

    Here’s where those Vietnam fans breathe a sigh of relief that the capital has not fallen, nor are there any Australian units in ra…

  39. 35

    Blackfoot peacekeepers, leaking from the long-held exclave of Olongapo, are starting to fill Australia’s East Indies. Is this goin…

  40. 36

    Icelandic St. Louis, on Nova Scotia. Just look at all those specialist slots! That’s what Future Worlds is all about.

  41. 37

    Korean-held Shanghai may not be growing, but it too has substantial infrastructure in place. It’s pretty impressive what FW lets o…

  42. 38

    Vaasa and Tampere flip to Sweden, while Sibir settles Long Xuyen right on the battlefield. It’s immediately bombed into the black…

  43. 39

    Viyaja is back in Vietnamese hands, as is Thi Li Bi Nai. As more Vietnamese troops approach Panduranga, it’s possible that the who…

  44. 40

    Ah, the Kimberley Antarctic holdings. With Hanoi taking a bit of a beating, Wulungarra might be our new #2 for population (after P…

  45. 41

    Looks like Vietnam nuked Middelburg, a Boer city they briefly flipped a long while ago. But what’s that I see in the corner…?

  46. 42

    That’s right, Sibir and Sweden have made peace! And just as Gustavus seemed to have rallied a more substantial army to the front,…

  47. 43

    The barren Swedish core. With substantial but non-crippling losses to both Iceland and Sibir, Sweden will have to quickly tech up…

  48. 44

    Kuchum’s worker crews are already hard at work cleaning up his new holdings. Sibir needs these cities online ASAP if it wants to r…

  49. 45

    Peace in Europe means little down here in India. Gaur has flipped, and the Vietnamese defenders have seemingly surrendered it and…

  50. 46

    Panduranga is Vietnamese once again! Kimberley and Blackfoot units immediately start to fill the space. The forces near Dong Hoi,…

  51. 47

    Sweden’s still receiving 500+ GPT from Exclavia, which is probably propping up their economy. Kekkonen will only owe it for a few…

  52. 48

    Middelburg is re-nuked. This won’t have much practical effect on the Boers, but it’s a big middle finger to Kruger courtesy of the…

  53. 49

    Gaur’s last garrison is still in place, but it’s not likely to live much longer. Agra’s garrison is also depleted, both by casualt…

  54. 50

    I have a hunch Ekeuhnick is planning not to renew his open borders treaties. His own troops aren’t able to fill his lands with so…

  55. 51

    Blackfoot troops are trying to fill Borneo to peacefully protest Parkes’s invasion, but it’s not doing much. Vietnam’s embarked Bi…

  56. 52

    Tianjin’s in Aussie hands, and a substantial force of Drone Fighters out of Rach Gia Airbase are assaulting the Vietnamese forces.…

  57. 53

    Agra has fallen! The city, once the Mughal capital, is another crucial prize for Kruger’s orange empire. Phu Xuan has either been…

  58. 54

    It’s worth remembering that Vietnam also holds the southern end of the Indian subcontinent, and these cities are also being heavil…

  59. 55

    Autocracy is voted world ideology, which is unsurprising giving its omnipresence in domination AI games.

  60. 56

    Ingolfur’s weakened military and scoreboard of capitals have attracted Kruger’s attention, and plans are at least being considered…

  61. 57

    Brazilian units have started to fill the outback too. Parkes’s carpet certainly has a lot more holes than it used to, further prov…

  62. 58

    Gustavus Adolphus, in his temper, throws darts at a board of potential military targets for Sweden’s big comeback. He hasn’t updat…

  63. 59

    Sri Lanka continues to not want to be seen, building units capable of hiding underwater. Parakramabahu just wants to survive to th…

  64. 60

    Blackfoot Honolulu’s building Paratroopers. Of note is the fact that the Blackfoot have the tech for some futuristic units like Bi…

  65. 61

    Phu Xuan has flipped again, and the remaining Vietnamese forces in the area are scattered and weak. The Boer presence in the area…

  66. 62

    Trincomalee did indeed flip, but the nearest Boer melee unit in this shot is all the way in Basra, meaning further damage to the a…

  67. 63

    Tianjin is Vietnamese once again, and the Australian presence looks a little thin. Is Crowfoot and Jandamarra’s interference payin…

  68. 64

    Parkes isn’t giving up, though, and manages to squeeze enough units through to flip the Cham coast again. Vietnamese troops are al…

  69. 65

    No, this isn’t the end of the episode, and no, your eyes aren’t lying to you. That is indeed Brazil topping the military charts, s…

  70. 66

    Thi Li Bi Nai flips to the first Australian Advanced Destroyer I’ve seen in a while, although it won’t hold.

  71. 67

    A scorched pile of rubble is all that’s left of Kandahar, once home of two world wonders. The Kremlin, the Taj Mahal, and thousand…

  72. 68

    For every city destroyed, though, a new one can be built. The Boers have established Silkokitsimik on the Horn of Africa, and it’s…

  73. 69

    Stats time! The Boers’ green-Sahara project has paid off with plentiful food supply.

  74. 70

    Australia continues to hold the most territory, but Kruger’s catching up.

  75. 71

    A look at the religion stats shows how rapidly Arianism and Catholicism have spread. Leonidas XIV “Mallock” cries from beyond the…

  76. 72

    And here’s our religion map! With that, so long! This has been /u/1760s, signing out.
