    Cheers! I lead them in land tech by a few levels, I'm not sure about Ideas but I don't think they have an advantage in those. I can think of four reasons for these losses:

    1) Obviously, on some occasions the Spanish had more troops because they had more than I was willing to bring to one province. I'd rather lose a battle when I'm sure I can win on the second or third try rather than take a huge WE hit.
    2) Just as obviously, my brain fart led to no general for that one battle.
    3) I have no artillery in this region. Because of all the TI pushing, I've sacrificed staying power for mobility. It would make sense to have one army with artillery that stays home, but I haven't gotten around to that yet as I can still grind it out without one.
    4) I have New World cavalry. While they're killing machines - especially when I first got them because their shock and fire pips were unreal at that point in time, but even now they're considerably better than what Western cavalry has - they have quite low morale for the second half of the 17th century. The first Western cavalry type that reaches my dragoons' killing potential is the Carabinier at land tech 55, so I expect to have this "problem" for nearly a century still. Of course, if it turns out that I can't win battles at all at some point, I'll have to make an earlier change.

    Indeed. Honestly, I don't expect too much action from anyone but the Portuguese.

    Spain's navy was reduced significantly and their under strength regiments were destroyed, so this might enable Spain to bounce back (as they have an easier time supporting their military and might get a manpower pool again). But it'll certainly be harder to do without Barcelona.

    You emu'd my feedback post, kind of!

    There's a lot of truth here, especially now that my life is quite hectic (don't expect too many weekday updates in the short term...). It's often a choice between posting an update at midnight and then going to sleep or going to sleep at 11 pm and not updating until a few days later.

    An excellent update this one certainly is. Spain are a mere shadow of their former selves and I think it fare to say you are now the power in the Americas, cracking stuff.

    I love that after you assault a province "the garrison was allowed to march out, keeping its flags and arms". Zombie Spaniards!

    I'm just happy about the way this game ended. Thought I'd spread the joy.
    As for CK .. yeah, I got it. Still have to set it up but it's nice.

    But like I said - drifting completely off topic here. Unless you can play the Inca's in CK, at least, and are suggesting we prod Malurous to recreate his empire in CK

    Thanks! Apart from the very north Spain shouldn't be able to expand, so it's just a matter of slowly eating their remaining land.

    Let's just say that updates written while dead tired tend to be of subpar quality.

    We let them keep their arms, but as you might notice it says nothing about legs. So it isn't much use to them when we "allow" them to march out, because they aren't able to.

    Depends on what Mallorca does. If they sit back and do nothing, I don't have a problem with them. On the other hand, if they try to attack me, they are doomed.

    Hmm, I haven't made a decision on Aragon yet.

    True, that might be a bit questionable if it's indeed widespread. I don't have much of a problem with it myself.

    While I already had both CK and DV, I'm glad to have CK in GamersGate now. No need to lug the disc around if I don't want to.

    It must be hard to cope withthose new world dragoons and the military advantage they give you. You bear up under the strain rather well, though. Spain you have more of less boxed in, Portugal is still spreading like some contagion.
