The thread:

Total War=Total Wait

The story:

This thread began in May 2012 (fun fact: the OP is two sentences but was edited twice anyway), and is now 521 posts long. The topic - the fact that the game has been in pre-order and production hell for years.

Would you agree to add to this geeklist the ongoing threads about :

Is this game broken, or not ?

The only question which would seem to generate more drama then that one, is: "who REALLY shot JFK" ?

Starting in January 2009 there was the discussion why someone would like to play a game on such a horrible topic.

Unnessesary

This unusual meta session report "At Dawn We Ate Sugar Smacks: Wargaming Newbies Tackle the Monster of Monsters" by Soren Narnia struck a chord with many people and continues to attract new comments 6 months later.

(However it's only about 150 comments long now, so if you think the thread (as opposed to the original session report) is not epic enough, feel free to delete it!)

Third person meta thread; approaching 1000 replies as of this posting. I had seen these a decade ago on the Combat Mission forums and was pleasantly surprised to see one pop up independently here. It's unfortunate and amusing to see those that "don't get it" poke their toes in and apparently not understand what is going on around them. A unique way to comment on the community and the personalities that make it up.
