Quick clarification - please vote for only one game. It's going to be confusing to vote for the fall game at the same time, so please disregard my earlier suggestion.

I'll count you down as Fell Seal Robear unless you change your mind.

I'll take this opportunity to cast my vote: Fell Seal

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak

Being the current organiser of the cRPG club, I have to confess I'm mildly compromised here as I could just vote for Fell Seal again.

I'm going to go for Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak instead.

Oh, right, so use to lists. Fell Seal it is.

Fell Seal

Phoenix Point

Old World

Oooo... We could have some sassy X-Com-like fun this time around!

Still about 3 hours left! It's a close one so please vote if you haven't already.

Also, I've updated the ranks - shoot me a DM if I owe you a promotion as it's sometimes hard to see who all participated last round. And if you made at least an effort to play CK 3 I'll give you credit - tutorial included since it's pretty long.

Not worried about my status, just want company playing the games lol.

We have a winner - Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark! Here's the new link.

It's almost October so nominations are open for the fall-winter game. Please post your three pics by Midnight Tuesday September 26.

You also have one week to jump in on Fell Seal. Remember in this club you get credit for putting a few hours in - no need to beat the campaign.

Finally, I may be trying to organize a multiplayer game for Extra Life. Details to come regarding which game and times.

Company of Heroes 2
Fantasy General II
Lock 'n Load Tactical Digital

Two of those mentioned by Sundown are on my to-play list! Here are my picks, deep from my backlog...

Thea: The Awakening
Driftland: The Magic Revival
Phantom Doctrine

Phantom Doctrine
Phoenix Point
Gem Wizard Tactics

Old World
XCOM2
Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak.

Sorry guys I've been completely off this week (trying to finish up a big contract). I'm going to leave voting open till tomorrow at 9 am PST. Then we can move forward to semi finals.

My votes:

Three Kingdoms Total War
Warhammer 40K: Gladius
Civilization 6

Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children is getting some heat in other threads, and it's at an all-time low Steam price right now ($15).

I don't really have another two, although I'll second XCom 2 and Civ 6 if seconding is a thing here. Already own them both on Switch and I wouldn't mind another portable strategy game after Fell Seal.

Speaking of which, marking down for the record that I did indeed roll credits on Fell Seal.

Yeah I'm playing Troubleshooter this quarter anyway. Would be cool if it counted for something besides my own pile.

But two SRPGs in a row might be too much for some people?

Fell Seal was much more FF Tactics or Disgaea like with controls and maps and builds/classes.

Troubleshooter feels a lot closer to XCOM on the battlefield and with having a home base for between mission activities. Or maybe XCOM Chimera since the units have some built in backgrounds and starter classes.

It's the semi-finals! Please vote for your top 3 (and only top 3) by Midnight Friday 9/30. We'll push a little into October but that's OK. I'll also tally everyone's new rank by Friday as well.

Civilization 6
Company of Heroes 2
Driftland: The Magic Revival
Fantasy General II
Gem Wizard Tactics
Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak.
Lock 'n Load Tactical Digital
Old World
Phantom Doctrine
Phoenix Point
Thea: The Awakening
Three Kingdoms Total War
Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children
Warhammer 40K: Gladius
XCOM 2

Three Kingdoms Total War - never really got to spend any quality time with it when it came out and maybe it'll work better on my aging laptop than TW:WH3:Immortal Empires (that's pretty buggy right now, as well)

Phantom Doctrine - only because I re-watched Atomic Blonde last night

Civilization 6 - maybe it's time to revisit a classic

Troubleshooter
Civ 6
XCOM 2

Troubleshooter
40K Gladius
Phantom Doctrine

Troubleshooter
CoH 2
XCOM 2

XCOM2
Old World
40k Gladius

Troubleshooter. But my vote is probably only worth a half because I never finish a game anyway!

Moggy - 3 Kingdoms will probably not run better than the Warhammer versions...
