My second game of DW. Mecklenburg, start in 1399, normal difficulty, no lucky nations. My initial goal was to unite under my flag the entire New World and cut all the links with Europe. The process was well under way when, around 1500, I inherited Brandenburg. That was a tough moment for me because from that moment I became the target for all the powers from HRE and their sister uncle. I managed to survive and added a second goal, to unite all the provinces from Europe with which I shared a common culture. The result you can see it here
I had some epic naval battles with GB and Spain (with more than 100 ships in combat) and at the end I had to battle Austria (as HRE) for all the provinces that I needed in Europe. It was very difficult because by that time Austria had like 8 vassals that I needed to take over and was leading a PU with GB. Switzerland was very aggressive towards me and DoW me every time I was at war. Bohemia and France also joined almost every time the gang.
I also played with a personal rule: do not pass over 10 infamy (well, I disregarded once this rule when I needed badly an OPM and I reached an infamy of 14).
