Well, it seems that Sweden's theme now is the one being picked on. Such is things when it has the least points in elimination threads. Just go with the flow, no one will mind when you punch the low pointer without reason. Then again, I'm Swedish myself so I guess it's time for me to stick up for them. With a reason. Arabia - 24-3=21 Assyria - 21 Babylon - 24 Brazil - 26 Byzantium - 25 Carthage - 21 Dutch - 23 England - 21 Greece - 20 Huns - 22 Indonesia - 25 Mongolia - 24 Ottoman - 12 Poland - 25 Portugal - 23 Russia - 24 Shoshone - 26 Spain - 24 Sweden - 12+1=13 Zulu - 23 Sweden: This theme is not "just" a corruption of the peace theme (seriously, what other theme is not a corruption of the peace theme, HELLO?), it tells a story. And an important story at that, history wise. It's the story of Sweden's participation of the 30 years war, and Sweden had to show everyone that they are NOT going back to Catholicism and the Dark History Removing Age of Church Power. 0:00 to 0:36 - This part references the decision to enter the thirty Year War and show those Germans what for. With great determination, Gustavus himself marches along with his army, because that's what kings did back then. His tactical genius and presence would boost the morale of his troops to the nth degree. 0:36 to 1:14 - The scene cuts back to the castle in Stockholm, where Gustavus's spouse Maria Eleonora (of Brandenburg. Not to be confused with Maria Theresa) is alone at the castle, deeply worried about her husband. The fiddle/violin part could easily be the song of her lament towards his decision to join the war, and how Sweden will be affected is he falls in battle, since their only heir was Kristina. 1:15 to 1:35 - The scene cuts back to the battlefield in Lützen, November 6th 1632 with His Majesty, and their preparations to attack are ready. The fog is thick, but that will not stop them from advancing towards the German troops. New holy Roman Empire my foot. 1:40 to 2:09 - The battle starts, with small field cannons firing, cavalry charging, swords swinging. It becomes utter chaos as everyone fights, and the fog stays thick. 2:09 to 2:37 - Gustavus himself get lost in the fog from his troops, and accompanied with somewhat bad eyesight, he has no idea where he is. Desperately trying to find his forces, he rides around. Some German troops spot him and asks him who he is, and he replies "I'm the King of Sweden!" to which the German promptly shot and killed him. The news spread like wildfire that the Swedish regent and commander has fallen. He is dead and along with it the morale of the Swedish troops. 2:37 to end - A sombre silence is about when the sad news spreads back tot he home country. But in the end, Sweden's effort were not to be forgotten. They played an important part of history. And that, my friends, is why Sweden's war theme is not "just a corruption". IT tells the story of Gustavus's last moments as a king and a general of his army (though he should have refrained from designing warships, seriously). Arabia: My ham went unnoticed, therefore I take my points back. But in all honesty, while the buildup is nice, it takes a little bit too long to get kicking. BONUS ROUND! Germany: A lot of people slammed this unfairly. Not every war theme has to be a "cörröptiön" or fast paced or tell a story. The reason why this theme sounds a bit mellow and slow is because the Germans are DISCIPLINED! None of this "artghblargh kill murder yar I'm drunk like Attila" crap. It's self controlled, calculated and looming. Much like Bismarck himself. Every move he makes he knows will lead to good things. Also, question. For all of the days I haven't voted, do I get to keep those points and use them all in one go?
