Here's my German empire as of 1917.
Just got another CB on France and think I might grab the rest of Madagascar.
All the cool kids are in the SPD!
Should have sphered China faster. I think GB's run away with this.
Germany at peace
AAR in progress

The Yamato Destiny: A Japan HTTT AAR
I love playing as Mexico, i find it an interesting country in historical terms.
I played a Mexican game and instead of going how you did, i went straight up the western coast, backed the CSA, then by the end of the game i owned Alaska and British columbia in the north (fought the British for it) and i pushed south all the way to Panama.
Shame i don't have the screenshot :/ i lost a bunch of files.
Irishman in Yorkshire.
Took Karelia off the Russians... jumped ahead of them in the table shortly afterwards.
1885 and UK hasn't cracked 10k industry and Russia isn't competitive with France. Oh my...
The point being that my game is a different version to 1.2. I'm trying to illustrate that the version we have, no country is anywhere near as dominant as the UK tends to be in 1.2.
Personally (this isn't a hint as to what our version is like, this is just me thinking out loud) I like serious variation as to how the AI performs, with the proviso that it's plausible. I'd like Germany, the UK, the US and France to do well almost all the time. I'd like the Russians, Turks and Austrians to sometimes turns it around and do well, sometimes fall out of the GPs altogether. And so on. By its nature the pecking order in V2 changes a lot less from start to end than in EU3, but I think the right balance is near as to how the various countries perform.
Japan wasn't guaranteed a Meiji Restoration, nor was Persia guaranteed not to have one of its own. Any game can always be better balanced, but bearing in mind that you cannot always please everyone, I suspect people will generally be happy with the balance side of the new patch.
Remember, those are my opinions and my opinions alone. I don't speak for anyone else.
Speaking of that Persia thing, could they not have a very, very, VERY rare event, unlocking a generic Meiji Restoration for uncivs? Enough that it doesn't happen all that often, but enough that it happens enough that people notice.
My Italy before the game got too laggy
That's a pretty impressively-sized Italy.
Late-game performance issues are supposed to be addressed in the upcoming 1.3 patch.
Perhaps, but it doesn't matter if it's necessary. It adds a fun, unstable, and to my knowledge plausible, element to a game.
Is posting images on this forum different than for others? I keep trying to put imageshack links in the proper image tags, and I'm still not getting anything to show up.
Behold the lamest country in the world becoming a great power.
