So kicking the crap out of France wasn't challenging enough. Nope. I have a new mission in life. It's crazy. Nuts. Insane.
I want Andalucia to be the only CoT in the world. That's the end goal. It will almost certainly require either a WC or close to it, which I've never done, but it will also force me to use blockades and embargoes to weaken CoTs so that when I take them, I can destroy them. (I don't plan on being very prestigious).
Version: 3.1 (if I can convert to 3.2 without things going splodie, I will when the patch is official)
Goals (in rough order):
1.) Annex Portugal before they get QFTNW, and disband Lisboa's CoT. Complete
2.) Wipe out Great Britain. Complete
3.) Lock everyone out of America, and disband the American CoT's. Complete
4.) Conquer/colonize Africa, disbanding their CoT's. Complete
5.) Take Italy and disband Italian CoTs. Complete
6.) Weaken France. Complete
7.) Destroy France and disband Paris' CoT and any new French CoT's.
8.) Become HRE and disband all the German CoT's. Partially Complete
Phase 4: Wipe out all other CoT's.
Phase 5: Jump into other people's AAR's and disband their CoT's.
Phase 6: Port the game into Spore and destroy the entire galaxy's trade.
Ok, maybe I'm going a bit overboard.
* Yet again, the style will be whatever I feel like writing at any given time.
* To keep things a little easier to keep track of, I'll try and post stats every 25 years, including: Provinces owned, Cores, Income, and # of provinces trading in Andalucia.
* This game should last longer than my other AAR, unless I get crushed like a bug. However, permanently losing as Castille takes effort. We'll see how it goes.
* Like my other AAR, I will definitely try to give insight to some of the rationale behind my decisions. Sometimes, I'll forget, so if you have questions, ask.
UPDATE: As of 1570, I have edited the common\defines.txt to stop auto-generation of CoTs (otherwise, I'd have had to embargo every nearby nation that has a CoT to avoid having an undestroyable CoT generated on my soil). I only edited the line that determines the Max # of provinces there should be per CoT.
