    how do you succeed with TO ? I always end up with a harsh shortage of MP ...
    should I annex Thrace for this aspect?
    no more unfinished IN AAR's

    Thrace is a bit far for TO .

    Defend against Denmark. One winning war should be enough to make them relenquish their core.
    Annex Pommerania when the Emperor is busy elsewhere (France/Hungary/Austra are great distractions for Bohemia)
    Avoid War with Poland/Lithuenia unless the GH is trampling them hard.
    If all else fails invade Russia. An alliance with Muscow will crush Novgorod. Release Finland as a buffer against Sweden and encircle and annex Novgorod capital for a Juicy COT.

    Good tip: Release Gotland as a vassal. EVERYONE will war you over it otherwise sooner or later.

    They'll war Gotland over it (and thus drag you in) too.

    Offensive or defensive?

    If I enact Erbkaisertum, do I still get authority from the imperial crown remaining in the same country? I doubt it, but wanted to be sure.

    Does the counter reformation religious decision last the entire game?

    No. It goes away sometime in the first half of the 17th century.

    Thanks for telling me. I usually quit by now so i dont know much about the mid to late game goings on. Im guessing that the loss of holy war casus belli and the ability to switch religions also happens at the same time.

    Here's two quick questions:

    http://i.imgur.com/OTx6P.jpg

    A) How did I lose this battle?
    B) I'm assuming the "WE" stands for War Exhaustion and the "T" stands for Terrain bonus/malus, but what does P stand for and does it have anything to do with me losing battles that I shouldn't?

    What is Paradox script called? Just "Paradox Script" or is it similar to, or based on, an existing scripting language? Curious...

    B) T is for tradition, either naval or land. P is for prestige.

    A) Did you have loser, obsolete unit types against some modern crack troops? Clubmen vs. riflemen for instance ;-) Land maintenance low? Lousy morale?

    Most of that army are Landsknechten Infantry from a handful of european provinces that I took over. Well above my current tech level/tech group. The ottoman empire has land technology of level 10, so I should have superior troops. Thanks for the quick reply, I really have no idea what to do.

    EDIT: Land maintenance is as high as the slider goes. I also have a 4 Star adviser giving bonus morale to armies (I think it's .20?) and all of the four armies were just chilling in my land before this battle, so their morale was/should have been maxed out.

    Terrain maybe? Did you cross a river? Just guessing now, really.

    I was defending.

    The only thing I can think of is the fact that my current ruler has a military skill of 3. But I can't believe it would make me lose battles when I outnumber my opponents by that much with superior troops. I really have no idea what to do with this. Ottomans are scary enough as they are, but now even when I have 3 times the troops I still lose.

  19. #4699
    Thinking, which is a better option?

    Austria -> Prussia -> Germany, TO -> Prussia -> Germany, or should I just go Austria -> HRE instead?

    What's your own land tech? You may be using Western troops (Landsknechten are Land 13), but your actual tech level determines the modifiers you use. For example, at Land 7 the Cavalry Shock modifier is x 1.0, at Land 10 it's x 1.4 - in other words, Ottoman cavalry will be 40% better than yours if your tech is only 7. Using better units only partly cancels that out.

    Your ruler's MIL rating gives a bonus of 10% of its value to morale: so your MIL 3 guy is giving you +0.3 morale. If the Ottoman Sultan has MIL 8, for instance, he's giving his troops +0.8. Also, does he have the military drill NI? Is he Defender of the Faith? Both of those give a big morale bonus (+1.0 and +0.5 respectively).

    Plus, don't forget there's an element of chance in every battle. You each roll a random number from 1 - 10, and add your bonuses to this to determine how much damage you do each day. If you roll 1, 3, 2 and the Ottomans roll 8, 9, 9 then they're going to win no matter how good your troops are. If that happens, you just have to suck it up and try again next battle. Even Napoleon lost sometimes.
