Except I don't think that Denmark wants Russia or the Ottomans to get any of their territory, because then it'll just be them, in between two slightly larger gigantic powers way stronger than them.
Denmark, Prussa and Russia are my forced allies. France is not hostile to me but GB always tries to create coalition against me. With his superior navy, I can't attack him.
GB has merchants in everywhere, he is the only colonizer and needs lots of money. So he focused on colonizing of all America. I fought with GB, he blockaded my ports and occupied my islands but when I forced Russia, Denmark and Prussia into my alliance GB wanted peace.
Still strange, seems like none of this nations could hurt him and a blockade gives ungodly amounts of money if done right. There was a game where the player ended up with over 100k ducats to spare after 2 sessions of blockade of europe.
I think france is just waiting to take lands from the infidel.
Why exactly aren't France, Prussia, Russia, and Denmark more interested in attacking you? How did you force them to ally you?
After the guy who rules France left us, France stayed in AI for few years when I threaten Prussia, Russia, and Denmark. Now we found a new player for France.
But OE early if not get stomped by few big players, shouldn't need much allies (If austria threaten it - it should antagonize it with it neighbours).
Yeah, any player in that area (Poland, Austria, etc.) would make things substantially harder for the Ottomans. If I remember correctly they did at one point have a Bavaria (I don't know why they didn't pick Austria) but that player became inactive.
-(not) Epic France
-Epic Poland , still in PU with Lithuania xD
-Yes , Aztec, Maya, Inca, Catholic and Westernized
-Yes, Maya inherited Portugal
My humble Prussia, Bulwark against the Eastern Hordes and Other Mean People.
Lüneburg is in a PU, except for that there isn't a lot to note. I suffered from overextension for a long time because of the long-lived king Albrecht Dimwit I von Crapfenburg (a smashing 3/3/5). I intend to inherit my way into the north German area to see if I can form Germany.
