Complaints about newer games that fall entirely under the They Changed It Now It Sucks trope.
It's my country...i was shocked when the strange little box appear.
Austrian Central Hungary owned by Germany and controlled by German pan-nationalists? I wonder what their demands are...
It doesnt matter the quality of your work, your destination is the same lol.
Elsass-Lothringen in 1838 by AI Prussia only 2 years after the game starts!
Those damn greedy Jews!
The isolated colony of French Persia, bordering Russia.
Short game resume: Got attacked by Russia shortly after game started, fought 3 wars against Sardinia-Piemonte and consequently against France, fought 3 wars against the Turks as well, and fought a war over the hegemony of germany with Prussia which knocked em off the great power status.
A few years ago i was hit by a "curse of the pharaoh" event because i was diging for stuff in the valley of kings. That curse (event) gave me nothing less than 1 full militancy point in ALL my pops. Seriously?!?
If things werent already bad, the springtime of nations ruined my nation completely. 0.30 militancy per month? And after a couple of years under that goddamn effect, here is the result...
By the way, i lost a good portion of my army to the rebelion, and i didnt lose the 60k i possess at the moment because these are not jacobin rebels, but anarco liberal rebels!
Now i know why i always see Russia, Mexico and a lot of other nations covered with rebels for half the game...
I never lost a war against any of my enemies and their professional armies, but i am afraid i have been badly beaten by the common rabble.
P.S: I was very close to unify germany. all i needed was the russian konigsberg, french alsace-lorraine and to influence a few extra nations into my sphere (like prussia).

I called this game my "Weird things that probably shouldn't have happened" game:
The Chinese take the Azores(and other Islands and Goa but I don't have screens):
The Greeks take part of Persia, how ironic...
USA lets the CSA survive as just Richmond but it is a Richmond covered in confederate reactionaries!
Ireland owns Scotland:
Ottoman Empire, Ottoman Asia and French Ottoman Empire? Hmm.
Edit: BTW, it's a bit hard to see from the log but communists just took power in Austria-Hungary...

Little bit too many soldiers. If anybody knows how to get rid of them, please tell me.
