Flanders had lost a province to Bavaria becoming an OPM, and thus still lived.
They could have gone on for a few more years just by staying an opm, but no.
They had to be greedy, and annexed their neighbor, making them a 2pm and thus a target.
France still had 5 or 6 provinces with my cores.
War timer was up, so...
Armies went in, killed about 90k forces worldwide between France and their friends.
France had a huge military, but they pulled most of it away from my troops. Smart of them!
The largest battle V France looked like this:
He had defender advantage in terrain, but it wasn't enough.
I assaulted 1 and 2 level forts all over. (not sure why France never built better forts)
In short order peace was made in exchange for land.
6 provinces for zero infamy! Good times.
The only way to celebrate was by annexing one of my former vassals.
Scientific revolution halted! Wtf. Mmkay, note to army: Only kill -half- the scientists we capture.
Attacked Yemen because... why not?
(Mostly because I was on truce timer with pretty much every European country)
Killed them in a couple piles because they didn't have more than about 60K troops, then made peace:
Then Modena. Warning me. Annoying me. Getting owned by me over and over. Finally, they became a 2PM.
OE response? Die? Ooo Bavaria will intervene.
Move armies. Two wardecs. Die, and Die!
While killing them, Printing press event!!
Bavaria gets peace for land.
Modena too, except they didn't have enough land to remain in existance.
Suddenly peace!? Umm... no declare more war!
Mission on Serbia. Wardec/invade/annex.
Then Netherlands! Mmm wiped armies. Wiped Navies. Stole colonies. Netherlands in North America occupied.
Except one province. Why?
Great X!!!! In my business! Attacking that one last province once I destroyed Netherlands army?! WTF!
GB has colonies next to me. Wardec.
England has friends. Too bad for them.
I killed them all.
Seriously, every army I could locate was destroyed.
I didn't assault or even move into Austria or the displaced Papal state.
I let them continue building armies to kill.
Peace with Netherlands, just took 1 province...
Left them open to invasion from Europeans, who would be cheaper to take provinces from later.
Kept killing Great X for a while, and that was the end of the decade.
