Europa Universalis VI - The Grandest Virtual Party details
The cherished concept is coming back. Paradox will host the Grandest Virtual Party with some help from TurboLarp and Parsec. The extravaganza will see 60 players divided into 20 teams engage in whole two days of diplomacy and warfare. The usual in-person event in a castle will have to wait some more but the organisers will use Parsec to ensure that connectivity issues are kept to a minimum. The use of Parsec will provide shared control of the same county to several people even though they may not be in the same physical location.
Communication during the event will take place on Discord, spiced with special custom functionality meant to enhance the experience.
Those who don't want to throw their hats into the ring but would love to enjoy the event can catch the entire thing while it's being live-streamed on Europa Universalis IV's official Twitch Channel.
