    what the hell, prussia is a living cheat. any enemy up to 150% of my numbers gets annihilated on contact, double of my numbers gets humiliated with 4 times my losses, best part of this is that ai only sees numbers and it's more than happy to throw its 75-100k troops on my 50k and lose everything, i don't even have to chase and go pop moles.

    Playing Portugal right now with a random New World. Focused on monopolizing trade from South-East Asia, while Spain gobbled up most of the New World.

    Had luck with England becoming a Junior Partner of mine. Integrating them will probably not be possible, as it would go way past my governing capacity.

    Will probably use the money I am now swimming in to hire several mercenary companies to beat Spain and his colonies again. This time I will focus on giving his colonies independence.

    If you're planning to play anything to do with central Europe (HRE, Catholicism, Bohemians/Hussites) then you probably should have it installed. (Also, a ton of missions.)

    Emperor is a glorious trainwreck, which is historically accurate, but I'm more hyped for Leviathan as far as overall game balance and fine tuning goes.

    Finally got the Mare Nostrum Achievement, more tedious than anything else. I have no idea how people who do world conquests manage to make it all the way to the end...

    You are improving mate,keep at it :)

    You should get the extended mission mod. It has pretty fun roman empire missions.

    Also play with mongolia,it is the most fun nation at the moment.

    I might just do that but I have no idea how hordes or Ming work. I assume there is some mechanic for getting Ming to implode.

    No need,just be pure tengri and get aristocracy to get that 100% horse ratio, and have pure horse armies with cannons. Just fallow the missions and you will have a good time. You could always just edit the tengri in the docs to give you 2-3 missionaries so you could convert at a reasonable pace.

    i tried mongolia once, but years ago. not enough time to score a decent ally before china declares war and annexes you in a single war.

    What ally? You start as a vassale to the oirat. You eat them,then you eat all the tribes to the east and the west. Pure cav is very strong vs China,you wipe armies left and right lol. I never had an ally when i play mongolia.

    Big brained dev design. Reminds me of how Paradox supposedly is unable to make sense of Victoria 2's coding today.

    Still not sure how I'll deal with perfidious Albion, but it's been a pretty good start. Probably will keep our alliance while I annex the rest of Scotland and then try to befriend Denmark and/or France.

    first best ally is austria. second best is france, after it consolidates. spain lacks the sheer army size of both, poland(+lithuania) and ottomans are too far.
    lucky nations or not?

    Default settings, so lucky nations enabled I think (it being a prerequisite for ironman if I'm not mistaken).

    Best to have an ally with a strong navy since England has already lost its continental possessions.

    Yea France would be better than Austria, if given cover they most likely could send armies over the channel. Austria would just chill in the distance if England isn't allied with a continental nation. Ideally you'd have France and Spain allied, unless Denmark has a strong navy then it'd be France and Denmark.

    i've never seen denmark become relevant, not even with lucky nations on. the whole scandinavia is not enough, it's poorer than spain and ai lacks skill and timing to try to hurt the empire and get lubeck.

    Did you really expect anything else?

    Though I am amazed the their big solution to the problem of carpet sieging is to just make it official and automate it.

    I think "Pillage Capital" as a peace condition amazes me the most. How does that work? "Ah yes, the King of France. We conquered your border regions, as you may know, and have so far beaten every army your sent at us. I bet you rue the day you decided to invade Italy! Anyway, we don't give a shit about taking back those provinces, instead, we want you to let our troops inside Paris and have them just loot the shit out of that place. Loot it, rape it, kill it, set it on fire, that sorta thing. We'll cart away anything of value and call it quits. Is that ok with you?"

    Or alternatively "We've crushed your armies in the field. We hold your capital after a long siege. Would you kindly allow us to loot, rape and pillage to our heart's content? What's that? No? Not enough warscore? Oh, alright then, guess we'll sit and wait for a bit."

    Yes,it should have been an army button that gives you aggressive expansion.
