CivBattleRoyale Season 4 (CBR X4)

Hey guys, I recently stumbled across the Civ 5 Battle Royale (CBR) discord and after speaking to some of the guys there and some of our staff here I figured why not cover their stuff in a thread here as they do some pretty darn cool stuff. They have a pretty big following and anything that keeps the flame of Civ5 alive and strong as newer Civ games come out is always a good thing! Each of their seasons lasts quite a long time so it's rather fortuitous timing that I bumped into them right before the new season 4 kicks off. :)



Their operation is huge but the concept of the show is pretty simple! On a massive world map, 61 AI Civilizations got at it to see which one can be the last one standing. All Civilizations are chosen by the audience of the civbattleroyale reddit group and part of the fun is helping narrate the story collectively along with original content and putting your support behind one of the competitors. No human intervention in the show as a several months long game is recorded and then curated into episodes across the action. Episodes are narrated by members of their 10k+ sized community cheering on the AIs on their unpredictable route to victory.

Their subreddit sidebar has most of the key information people need to have access to, but below are several good places to start and participate with the show.
Main CBR Reddit group: https://www.reddit.com/r/civbattleroyale/
CSS enabled CBR Subreddit: https://old.reddit.com/r/civbattleroyale/

"Link to the sheet with a list of all available civs as well as their designs: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VdYQmF7Y3KHxqWCtFIujTN06PndUdUUxs_ceAFwLNGQ/edit?usp=sharing
Note that some starting locations are up for adjustment depending on which other civs get picked as long as its somewhat ambiguous and/or there are other choices. For example, if Gujarat got picked, Pakistan would be moved to Islamabad and Pratihara to Kannauj."

"Just as with the previous season, there is a voting registration required for the voting of the roster for Season 4.
All you have to do is very simple:

  1. You need to have a Reddit account. If you are unable to register a Reddit account, let us know through Discord to be able to work with you to make sure you are included.
  2. Leave a response in the [Reddit Post comments area] with the text Registered.
  3. When you vote in the external site, you will need to type in your Reddit username as it appears exactly for your ballot to be accepted.
Voting registration will be open from [10th November 2023] until the third week of voting. Keep checking up on the subreddit for updates to know when the registration period is closed."
