    This should provide sufficient explanation.

    Here's my Ottomans in 1593.



    This is only my second game of Divine Wind and I've never gotten to this point before. I'm aiming for WC without going above the BB limit, but I only have 57 more years of Holy Wars left, so I'm not sure how to do it. Any advice?

    Some other points:
    I'm making enough money that I can't westernize because I'm fairly close to the "ahead of its time" limit, so I'm still in the Ottoman tech group. Should I purposely drop below so I can switch?
    In a few years the steppe hordes will be gone, split between myself and Ming.
    I have QftNW and a few colonies in the new world.
    How does the Imperialism CB work? As I said, I've never gotten past 1600 in a game before.

    I've been playing this Brandenburg -> Prussia game for the past few days, and it's... gone fairly well. I was planning on forming Germany, but I think I'll save that for another playthrough. Guess I'll have to settle for "Emperor for Life".

    I made some minor adjustments to the various tech groups to... make them more to my liking--mostly by upping the tech rate of non-latin tech groups. No other modifications.



    My diplomatic map mode...


    I... went a bit vassal-happy, as you can see. I even have finland up north vassalized. The Crimean Khanate and Flanders are junior partners in personal unions.

    The HRE screen...

    Vassalized electors, so I'm the Emperor for life, barring something drastic.

    And finally, the world map.


    Nowhere near as impressive as most of you guys, but it's the first game that hasn't taken a turn south for me.

    My Prussia game was much the same way. As Brandenburg, the only way I could fight anyone else was with vassals, and then I became the HRE. Then two imperial reforms made me hereditary ruler and ALL imperial states my vassals. I must admit though, it made forming and conquering Germany more difficult.

    Also, look at all those colorful blotches in the Americas. Is that the Inca in southern Brazil?
    How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol hordes got bored?

    As Brandenburg, I had to use sneaky, underhanded tactics to prevail at first.

    Poland fighting the Teutonic Order? Attack the order!
    Poland in a war against someone other than the Teutonic Order? Attack Poland!
    Pomerrania distracted by a war? Sneak attack, then vassalize.

    And so on.

    As a larger Brandeburg & Prussia--especially after the military reforms--I could afford to be a bit more straightforward. Though, being surrounded by a blobbing Bohemia, a Blobbing Poland, and a Blobbing Sweden (!?) made things a bit touch-and-go at times.

    Yeah, it's Milan. They've got colonies everywhere, ensuring that I'll never wipe them out or vassalize them, because I've been focusing all of my effort on land warfare and just let the dozen or so vassals of mine that have navies handle the seas.

    (First post!)
    Welcome to the forums, nice empire.
    So to answer a good substitute for the holy war CB is the Imperialism CB as you gain it against any nation and give only 2 bb point per province, but you have to be an Absolute monarchy or Republican Dictatorship, or Enlightenment despotism to have that ( It's also available for both revolutionary republic and empire but it's very difficult to a player gain this type of government ). So when you can go to Absolute Monarchy to have it.
    you also should use the colonial CB to conquer in Americas as it's also have an good reduction on bb points per provinces, but only to colonies.

    Later on it's good to have the Enlightenment Despotism as one of it's bonus it's a sweet -0,25 infamy per year.
    and to finish your conquer you can choose the Revolution and Counterrevolution NI that gives you CB against any country with a different type of Government (Republics if you are monarchy for example).

    Concerning the westernization in my late game with the Byzantines i did it in 1640-1650 so you are not so late, if you really want to do , focus your investment in only one tech ( gov is a good one) , continues to mint ,beware the inflation, be DoF and soon you'll can , if you already have the sliders in the right position.

    Hopes that's help you.

    They revolted from Ming when they collapsed. Later on they gained the Oirats (just 2 non-contiguous provinces) by Mongol Patriot rebels.

    Here be my current Savoyan game:



    Due to some lucky missions is managed to grew (legally) from 5 starting provinces to 7 or 8, right now owning Liguria as well (due to defection). Bad thing is im embroiled in an neverending conflict with Austria who is also the Emperor, they just kicked my ass, so i had to pay tribute, despite joining the war on the defender's side (Austria attacked Bavaria my ally) and bringing the Northern Italian alliance with me (Milan is a faithful ally). Leading personal unions with Barcelona (orange part of Aragon) and Cilli (red thing bellow Austria).

    Tell me if you want a close up on anything.

    A key trick with the Hordes is to force those who conquered them to release them, then eat them up for free. It can save a lot of unnecessary of infamy.
