* Someone by the name of Lycerius has been playing a Civ II game (known as [[http://www.reddit.com/r/theeternalwar/ The Eternal War]]) [[LongRunner for ten years]]. [[ForeverWar The result of said ten years?]] A Grade A CrapsackWorld. A three-way power struggle between super powers fighting for resources and the front lines have not changed in 1,000 years. Places are nuked again and again just as radiation starts to disappear and [[KillEmAll people are dying by the droves.]] Yet the player's [[{{Determinator}} dedication]] is incredible. On a brighter note, [[WorldOfBadass Vikings with nukes]] are pretty awesome once you get past how depressing that world is. Lycerius has been getting hundreds of responses and suggestions on how to end the war that has been going on for thousands of years and he has plans to try to stop it and get to clean up.

* Try out your favorite utter failure of a tactic: From [[{{UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte}} attacking Russia on land]] to a [[{{UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler}} war on two fronts]], your skill and the difficulty level can mean the difference between [[EpicFail perfect reenactment]] and massive success

* Someone by the name of Lycerius has been playing a Civ II game for ten years. On the one hand that is depressing because the world has been a grade A CrapsackWorld. A three way power struggle between super powers fighting for resources, the front lines have not changed in 1,000 years. Places are nuked again and again just as radiation starts to disappear and people are dying by the droves. Yet the player's dedication is incredible and how are Vikings with nukes not awesome once you get past how depressing that world is if we look past FridgeHorror and potential TruthInTelevision vibes. Lycerius has been getting hundreds of responses and suggestions on how to end the war that has been going on for thousands of years and he has plans to try to stop it and get to clean up.

* In Civilization 3, one the the Conquest scenario was the [[WorldWarII 'World War II in the Pacifc']] campaign, in which you can play as either the [[ImperialJapan Japanese Empire]] or one of the [[TheAlliance Allied Nations]]. In addition to the United States and the British Empire, you can also play as nationalist China, who starts the campaign with not only the most undeveloped infrastructure, but also the weakest infantry as well. In most games, the best you can do is to wage a [[HoldTheLine defensive war]], [[StoneWall protecting the few cities that you still have under your control]] until [[AmericaSavesTheDay the Americans and the Brits come bail you out]]. However, this troper once managed to not only have the KMT regain all of China's lost territory, but also [[CrazyAwesome push the Japanese out of their holdings in Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Korea as well]]! As if that wasn't awesome enough, by 1945, nationalist China was [[RefugeInAudacity LAUNCHING A DIRECT INVASION OF THE JAPANESE HOME ISLANDS]]! In 1946, [[HolyShitQuotient CHINA HAS COMPLETELY CONQUERED THE JAPANESE HOMELAND, FORCING THE IMPERIAL GOVERNMENT INTO EXILE IN SAIPAN!]] By the end of the campaign, the once underdeveloped and poverty stricken country of China has reorganized and reform itself into a regional superpower that rivals the US and Britain, in just the 5 years in between 1941 and 1946. Talk about a a crazy DarkHorseVictory in an insane AlternateHistory...
