Here is my Cro->HRE game
I was having alot of luck in the game. Turkey didn't attacked me, and i did randomly get the emperor title, and from that date, i started to steam roll everyone.
What to say, after the war, France didn't conquer anymore and it was slowly dying. After 23 years they were a minor nation.
Second victim(first as emperor)
Killed Scandinavia, they are a minor nation now
Third victim(second as emperor)
Turkey was the strongest nation in the world! I was having ready a 100k army against them, but it was not even enough to kill them. Thanx to my vassals (Austria!) i managed to throw them away from my border, and release Rome.

“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.” - Genghis Khan
So as of 1680 I have achieved my goal - the world has been reduced to my one-province Netherlands and its 204 vassals and 7 unions. Huzzah!
It's not pretty, but it is pretty awesome.
Nicely done! But you didn't colonize everything. (Never mind the fact that with another 140 years you could do it easily. Actually, now that I think about it, colonization would be tricky if you're trying to remain an OPM. You'd have to rely on vassals, unless you count colonizing and then immediately selling the province to a vassal. But with that method you couldn't get inland colonies.)
I'd imagine you're doing pretty good in tech.
Isn't the idea of vassalage that a powerful, strong (and probably BIG) nation protects some weaker (and probably SMALLER) nations? ... Oh, nevermind, forget it...
Seriously, i think this is the most awesome thing i've seen so far in EU3. I even think this is better than any traditional WC!
Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-męnu!
Awesome job. Did you get the achievement for that?
Happy thoughts, happy thoughts...
OH GOD! RUN!
Please do not quote such large posts without deleting the pictures.
Forgive my skepticism, but I tried a similar thing as Ulm once and my Infamy was in the several hundreds. Some nations needed to be annexed in quick wars and released quickly which lead to some intense infamy. How did you manage larger countries like Wu(or is that Qin)?
My Duh, HRE reforms for most of Europe and Holy war annexation/release for the rest of the world infamy-free, right?
