My game as Portugal went fairly well
wow many small provinces! I'd like the whole world in vanilla with that many small provinces, would never run out of something to conquer
well, you could ran out with lets say an extended 3000 years campaign

Warning! Thread necromancy ahead
By the wretched voodoo dolls
By the mocking face of trolls
By the once deleted save
Rise from thy grave
There won't be eternal rest
For the thread that shall attest
The glory of my recent game
In the Grand campaign
As you can see, there are 3 main players of European politics.
The red tortoise, happily biting it's way into the HRE is, of course Poland, with Lithuania as it's shell, and lot's of half-digested vassals. It's main methods of expansion are, shockingly, diplovassalisations (!) (with a bit of pagan-bashing once in a while and a province taken now and then [usually] in defensive wars - plus eating Bohemia as a form of revenge for EURO 2012). It was quite lucky to get a good diplomat advisor, but with the soon-to-be westernisation (a few years from the final slider move and a king too good to pass this opportunity) it's luck will end (it's IN, remember, so all advisers for western countries are artists or colony guys!), and it will be qui desiderat terra, paraparet bellum again.
The green pig is the HRE and with it's most excellent decision to elect an extremely weak OPM as the emperor, it is surely destined for greatness. Especially being hinged between 2 Great Powers. Austria has never (!) been to war, probably mad about Poland having better diplomacy then them. What really might survive are the archbishophorics, which will be left alone by Poland, due to their inability to get diploannexed.
The blue donkey which wants to eat Sabaudia is our dear BBB. It got all of this Spain, because Castille was smart enough to ally England, on who's provinces France had cores. Portugal, acted like a classical scavenger and munched Galicia, which was released after a war. When France sated it's hunger of English cores, it began engulfing all eastern HRE xPMS it could lay it's grubby hands on. Once it meats with Poland somewhere around the Wirtenburgia-Badenia line (or anywhere else, for that matter), the Angels ought to dust off their trumpets and seals, as the dies irae will surely be unleashed upon Earth! (and evry 5 years again... and again...)
Italy looks quite interesting: 3 major (2.5, looking realistically at Sabaudia's chances) players have formed. If France does not eat them up, some nice action will soon happen
As for the other countries... Turkey collapsed on itself (well... mostly, a few wars probably helped), forming Orthodox Morea in Europe and Muslim Aydin in Asia.
Sweden is quite strong, it fought wars with Poland over Gotland raging from catastrophic (loss of Fionia and a Finnish province, that was supposed to revolt and be vassalised... but Novogrod got it first!) to very successful (reconquest of Fionia and the final annexation of Gotland).
Hungary lost a few wars with Poland, but is quite strong in the south... but soon it's possibilities of easy expansion there will be exhausted.
One more thing: I am going to post it under strange screenshots, if this state will be maintained until 1500... but no Northern African province got conquered by Europeans!!! Morocco was once in a position to take it all, they had everything west of Mamelukes taken or vassalised, but a war with Castille and England nuked them back to square 1, by relesing countries and cancelling vassalisations (they still got off lightly, w/o territory loss, as France started dowed the coalition in this moment!
That's all folks, I will update the situation when I feel like it

So wait, who are you again?
Of course, what else would we play? Something crazy, like say, Divine Wind? Hahaha, of course not.
Ok, it's Poland

Well i play dw, because i am not so uber fan of "everythink mast gou akortink toi plain". But i would like to see russia forming at least once, in SP...
How is Gamersgate a shifty transaction? Just wait until 2020, when you'll be forced to play all games over a cloud without downloading anything, you'll pay per month and the map textures will just have McDonald's and Apple logos all over them...
There's a thing called credit card...and even those who can, need to have possibility for internet transactions, which not all banks offers. Plus steam policy is quite annoying, and from what i hear, games from steam have problems that not steam games does not have...
About credit card, well dunno but i think steam does not allow credit cards from every bank in the world, not like it matters.
