Hark and listen to my tale! A while ago, a vile and untrustworthy character posted an rediculous AAR wherein the putrid Russians where shown to take over the world. Now, as any human being with some kind of mental resources at their disposal can understand, that was a most undignified lie and a waste of tax payer money - the world can belong to Sweden, the orderly Swedish way of life and Swedish Meatballs only.
Anyhow, this unsavory character who posted the demented Russian AAR was rightfully taken to task for having used the standard campaign instead of the much improved, not to speak of much more difficult, ICG. Since ruling the world was Swedens destiny anyhow, amends were made and a new attempt was made. The strifes of the Right Honourable Swedes and Their Right Honourable Meatballs are detailed here:
The fighting and the building was done under the following conditions:
"Chaos Hurts"/Aggressive opponets (max difficulty possible)
Playing with infantry only (can't be bothered to push useless guns or even more useless cavalry around the whole damn place)
The Swedes had to sweat here, but in their mission to enlighten the world with True Swedish Meatballs, no stone was left unturned and no sacrifice (including the mindnumbing micromanagement of having to raise troops in a billion different provinces all the time - thank you Paradox!) was too large.
Over to the Swedish Chef, then.
