Why didn't you offer to play with me
Why didn't you offer to play with me
another mp game
formed japan 1453, conquest of ming ~1490
is going pretty well i would say
Me and some friends finally got to a stage where we can understand CK2 and played it for literally 6 hours. Fuck the pope!
I just bought Europa Universalis III: Chronicles and coming off of Vicky2 and Darkest Hour I must say:
I have no fucking clue what I'm doing
I tried reading tutorials but to me it's just walls of nonsense and technobabble.
To convey how awful I am, I lost in my war against Grenada as Castille.
In Vick2 I'm coming to the conclusion that democratic elections are rigged for the current ruling party, or in my case the Conservatives. I've been using the party loyalty NF in every populated region I have to get another party in power, but the outcome of every election would still be the same: Conservatives remaining in power every goddamn time.
Makes me so mad, because I don't want a goddamn Interventionism policy anymore once I start getting near the end of the game.
Somehow Wu was the dominant faction in China until about year 1600, where a LOT of Chihan rebels defected to Xia, almost half of Wu's territories. Korea somehow owns most of what used to be Manchu, which makes them more or less the biggest Far Eastern faction at the moment. Ming and Manchu don't exist, either.
I have to disagree on what he said about in the budget video.
You never want to raise tariffs above 10% or more. The reason why is because they increase higher input cost for factories and artisans, which results in less profit which results killing your economy/artisans and lesser income from taxes.
You never want to tax the middle class (artisans) too much either, they're pretty much the unsung heroes of the game. High taxes will only piss them off and makes them leave the country. The same would go for the rich class but I think it's alright to tax them more than the middle class, just not by a whole lot since you still need them to build railroads and factories.
Japan just fucking annexe UK in 1940.
Isn't it impossible to annex any fucking country that is in a faction? How in the fuck did Japan managed to do this?
Half the world is now yellow
HoI 3 - FTM btw
Also looking at getting into Vicky 2 again. I've completely forgotten everything so it should be interesting
Changed (Fictional) history with the Game of thrones mod. Aerys won against Roberts Rebellion (Both Robert and Eddard are still alive) Aegon VI ascends the throne a few years later (Rhaegar had died in a bed comatose and Elia became the Queen Regent) Doran is replaced by Arianne early on and Oberyn becomes her Guardian.
So I started a CK2 playthrough and I'm planning this:
Play as Duke of Apulia and unite Italy, then dick around in Europe (try to get the Balkan and maybe Spain under my control)
Save the game in 1453, import the save with a save converter
Load it up in EU III
Expand into Europe. Recreate the Roman empire and colonise like a boss.
Save in 1830
Import and load up in vicky II
Do whatever there is to do in that game because I don't own it yet, will buy this summer and learn to play
Import and load in HoI3
Finish world conquest as the new Roman empire.
I realise it will be time consuming and there's a chance the importing between games will fail, but I have to try, damn it!
Playing CK2: How do I hand over control of a duchy that I own to someone else?
Does the person you're trying to give the Duchy to have a holding of their own? I'm pretty sure they at least need a castle somewhere before they can be a Duke.
Huh. It's working now. Clearly I was being dumb.
It seems like Europa just doesn't want me to create the glorious Russian empire. I go to war with Novgorod as Muscowy, claiming every single territory, but they wouldn't let me annex. Shortly after that war, about every one of my neighbors decides to go to war against me in a very short order. I can barely raise a large army without going into complete debt, and all of my traders would just get out-traded so I had no money.
It's like the AI just doesn't WANT Russia to exist.
Ugh, didn't get in for the first wave of Alpha invites for War of The Roses, anyone else trying to get in?
But frankly, I have no problems managing my factories or artisans at 75% tariff at times, so 10% is a little bit low either way.
Also, Artisans, while they are nice for pre-industrial nations, really aren't up to speed especially compared to, well, factories. Once factories start building up, you can pretty much tax them like crazy and especially past about the '70s, when every country and their dog has a factory, you can pretty much have taxes as high as you want because they won't really be that accepted anywhere.
However, for some nations, particularly Austria(-Hungary), Japan, and just post-westernization states, Artisans can be a lifesaver. But they're no heroes-of-the-game by far, and if there's anyone who's going to be set at a low tax-rate, it oughta be the rich.
(Occupy would hate me, frankly.)
Also if you have something to say about one of my videos, leave a darn comment so my section doesn't look depressingly empty.
Just bought Darkest Hour, it's my first grand strategy game FP. Wish me luck.
Oh, and any tips before I jump into this?
If you're going to invade the U.K., don't bother with trying to use transport ships to get there. Chip in and get some more manpower-and-IC eating Transport Planes and Paratroopers instead, because all the transport ships can do for a long time is land at an enemy port.
I still need help on EU3. I really don't fucking know what I'm doing.
Have been playing For the Glory recently, no where as in depth as the other games. Even with that though, spent 60 years at constant warfare with france, both of us are economically destroyed after the war.
