    No, that was Tyrol. Anyway, I've got to say that I don't fancy lategame phases with locked alliances much. It takes away the diplomatic dimension and turns the game into chess, without time limit. Perhaps next game should have a time limit, to prevent endless wars, with the eliminated players bored because they're not playing?

    I was considering playing EU3 MP but then I realised I can't without posting in that thread. It's something of a curse, really.

    No, though everyone will laugh at you if you go over.

    Most groups will have Steam chats you could join (mine, for instance). Or you could P.M the GM. Plenty of ways to not ruin that post count.

    Last time I played EU3, BB didn't matter once you could get away with it. Is it more punishing now?

    Divine Wind changed everything about badboy mechanics. You go over it, everyone gets a CB on you, your vassals will start attacking you, your strong neighbours will start attacking you, your friend will attack you, that opm in the corner will jump on your face and chew off your nose, and... well, you get the idea.

    You will also get CRIPPLING events that reduce your stability, give you war exhaustion, increase your revolt risk, and just make life plain miserable.

    In other words, going over the badboy limit is now very, very bad.

    One wonders where British optimism regarding the game is coming from.

    Where are they going to get more supply centers? Britain will find that the Ionian Sea is a great defensive barrier to offensive action...

    For that matter, where is Germany going to get more supply centers...? Sev is defended. The three home Austrian supply centers are defended. Have fun killing Austrian armies in the marshes and steppes of Ukraine...that won't get you closer to your goal at all.

    There is no way to peace along the way of safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be safe. Peace is the opposite of security. To demand guarantees is to want to protect oneself. Peace means giving oneself completely to God's commandment, wanting no security, but in faith and obedience laying the destiny of the nations in the hand of almighty God, not trying to direct it for selfish purposes. Battles are won, not with weapons, but with God. They are won when the way leads to the cross.

    My Master gifts me with his speech on british faults. I applaude to infinity at his eternal knowledge.

    Britians game is over, they can do nothing and just watch as Ger mops up with or without their precious tied victory. Might as well not submit your moves from now on as there is nothing left for you in this game. Standard holds will suffice.

    Copy the map image, paste it into paint, replace Austrian A Gal with German A Boh. Austria can't safeguard everything simultaneously with that army in Galicia.

    Thank you.

    That map shows even more clearly how Germany is going for the solo win.

    Me back. Let's get this rolling again.

    Thx to Euro for running Britain for a week - if you wish, you can continue as a junior diplomat.
    All Hail Britannia - a V2 AAR - awarded the Weekly AAR Showcase on 6/15/14, came 2nd in the 2014 Q2 ACAs.


    Will mod for food.


    My two other shamefully abandoned AARs...(there is also a third one hiding in the corners of the V2 AARland, not even worth linking)
