The Players Choice Mod of the Year Awards hosted by MoD DB have been decided, over two weeks of voting and the top 10 have been announced! Gratefully the Empire at War games are well represented with two out of the top ten mods being from Empire at War: Forces of Corruption! Those two mods are Awakening of the Rebellion and Thrawns Revenge: Imperial Civil War.
The two mods have a great following and we are as a community so proud of what these two mods, as well as all other mods for the game, have performed in these awards and I'd like to congratulate the two teams from Awakening of the Rebellion and Thrawns Revenge on behalf of the community here and at Revora for their dedication, hard work, and sheer brilliance for creating such mods that we enjoy playing so much.
If you haven't heard of these fantastic mods I'll put a brief summary taken from their Mod DB pages with the relevant links and a helpful gameplay video to let you see the brilliance they have created.
