    Poland was going to get independence eventually, at least from Germany and AH.

    There is the matter of Serbia too.

    First time seriously playing HOI4. Let's see if/how much they managed to polish the turd that it was at release.

    First negative impression: the Russian soldiers in the 1910 scenario of The Great War Redux keep insolently replying with "slushayu" when selected. They should be whipped. The proper form of address in 1910 is "slushayu-s"!

    AwesomeButton 1910 scenario in HoI4? Huh? Are those two separate thoughts, one about HoI4 and the other Darkest Hour?

    So, are they adding anything new for the new DLC - other than three national focus trees? I have literally hundreds of hours in the game but no way I am paying for shit mods add for free and better.

    DH only has a 1914 scenario about WWI. I was talking about the "The Great War Redux" mod for HOI4.

    Paradox is having a developer weekend on Steam and I grabbed HOI4 with the meaningful part of its DLCs.

    Thinking of loading this up again and giving it another go. I can play as nuclear Australia right, just research nukes and drop them on random capital cities while remaining cozy on my impenetrable southern island?

    In honor of the Aussie who developed the latest expansion? I can't let go of the irony there :)

    The irony that someone from Adelaide was responsible for a Turkish themed expansion as well lol.
    Anzacs would be proud... oh wait a second.

    It wouldn't be paradox if you couldn't reform the ottoman empire in one of their games.

    Ottoman Empire was gone what, 18 years at game start? Certainly makes more sense than Byzantine, especially if they change the name...

    Not only a guy from Adelaide is doing a Turkey-themed expansion. Check who was in charge of the Ottoman forces at Gallipoli.

    Stuff like this consistently makes me think of this series of kebab joints in Melbourne that have these big Gallipoli memorial things on the wall. Fucking fantastic falafels and turşu too. :P

    The clearest picture I could find of the actual text is a selfie from one of the employees. It's cute in an endearing way, lmao.

    But yeah, afaict the only Turks interested in stoking bullshit flames are the kids of migrants in Europe who don't know anything about the actual state of the place under Erdogan.

    Turks are the only Balkanites without an inferiority complex about their past.

    Not to turn this into GD, but the number of Turks I've seen online that make absolutely ridiculous claims like that the Pantheon in Rome was based on a Turkish Yurt makes me think otherwise. (This guy needs a class on linguistics with etymology like that.)

    You mean the only ones that have one lol,also not glorious Balkankebabs for sure!

    Ahhh well it makes sense,all migrants are scum that cut away from their tribe and end up as salves to foreign culture. They are pretty much glitch,their children for most part are normal and recognize their parents as cunts and subconsciously know that they are in the wrong place and this is not their tribe. The desire to belong is very strong thing.

    RIP, fanta thinks I'm scum. ;( ;( ;(

    Oki, I'll stop derailing thethread.

    Very, very, very (veeeeeeeeery) vaguely relevant, I still think this game should have a culture/religion (ethnic?) system of some sort, though it's probably absent because it's too touchy a subject in some areas, and PDX already have enough trouble avoiding 'embarrassment' from HoI's fanbase.

    :lol:
    I think that all migrants are scum,not that you are one,there is a difference. Also i don't know you thus i can't say if you are or not :).

    That said you should live in your own country and adapt to your own culture instead of larping foreign one while mixing it with crumbs from your old one.

    I don't think post-colonial countries really work the same, honestly. It's a much different experience moving from one old world country to another, than to one in the new world. (But message me if you want to determine if I'm scum or not, haha.)

    This, incidentally, relates to my issues with the lack of culture/religion/ethnicity/etc. in HoI4. They don't represent the key differences between the likes of Netherlands and Australia, or hell, even Greece and Japan. Whether you play a melting pot or a country that recently emerged from a nationalist movement, there's nothing making those huge distinctions real beyond whatever flavour is built into a focus tree or whatever.

    I had a post that wouldn't derail the thread and I wanted to try to narrate in how many places the game is absolutely broken, and that's 4 years after release, but I need to play more before I can make a good summary of it.

    I would like to see it.

    I dunno, I just can't get into HOI IV as much as I can into DH.
