    Hearts of Iron 4
    Hearts of Iron 4 is a real time strategy game set in WW2 and developed by Paradox Development Studios. Within the game you take charge of any one country existing at the onset of the Second World War and guide it through these turbulent times. Within this game it is your duty to mobilize your country for the impending conflict by building up your industry, infrastructure and armed forces, whilst positioning your country in politically advantageous positions. Once war finally breaks out, it is your job to guide your country to victory against your foes.
    For the events, we will launch an unhistorical multiplayer session, which we shall continue with each event. Nations are claimed on a first come, first served basis. Players are allowed to cooperatively play as the same nation, as long as the first claimant to the nation concurs. Should some players however not attend an event, then they forfeit their claim to their nation. You will not need to purchase any additional content to be able to partake in the event.
    As such we will host the thrid Hearts of Iron 4 session this Saturday, the 18th of March at 4pm EST/ 9 pm GMT.
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
     
                             
     
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.
