Just spent an hour playing a fun little multiplayer game of EU2 with Huzics, Warspite and Produce Pete..
Johan ( Castille )
Huzics ( France )
Warspite ( Byzantium )
Produce Pete ( Austria )
The game started with all of us looking around planning what to do... it didn't take long until we saw the "Turkey has declared war upon Byzantium..."
Of course me and Pete tried to mobilise forces to come to his help.. The good christians we were....
Austria spent a long time negotiating military access so that they could move their armies down through the balkan nations to help our the Byzantians.
I moved my fleet down from the atlantic and boarded a migthy army of twenty thousand spanish knights (without horses onto my fleet and set sail for the aegean.
Meanwhile the french were busy in the chaos that is the french-english war.
Constantinople fell to the turks, and Morea was besieged by the turks. The only hope the empire had was the austrian army busy waiting for military access through serbia, and the castillian fleet which just rounded Siciily.. And their own pathetic remnants of troops in Dobrudja...
But all turned to glory, as the Castillians landed in Smyrna, and the turkish fleet were swept away by the combined castillian/byzantic fleet. And the Austrian army defeated the main turkish army in bulgaria.
(more to come later)
