So there I was, minding my own business and not causing any trouble when the maniacal warmongering dudes next to me warned me. Affraid for the safety of my nation, I declared war on them. And their allies too, for good measure. Seperately. Ming joined the war along with a few other unmentionables.
They all died. In huge amounts.
Then there was the annexation of whatever their name was, and several provinces taken from their friends for good measure. They should pick better friends!
Unfortunately, this left me with a errm shall we say bad reputation, so we decided to maintain a low profile for a while and stuck to horde bashing.
My economy was starting to pick up! Slowly but surely the grinding wheels of destiny were cranking up to economic superpowerdom.
Then, in a totally unprovoked and disgraceful manner, Castille insulted us by getting a core on one of their former provinces!
W. T. F?!! It was an OUTRAGE! Or at least, I was planning to see it that way. I looked at my empire and realized my troops were spread all over the place and busy chasing rebels. So I built another 150k or so forces -JUST- for this upcomming special occasion.
I checked over the various cascading alliance chains and decided I'd just save up several diplomats and declare several wars. F. IT!!!
It had been too long since I had a really -really- big party. Peace was made with most of the hordes, they all pay me money! I didn't have the colonists for all of them at once anyhow. And then, I started a bunch of wars.
YES!!! There was a rediculous amount of people dying. I lost count pretty quickly on the number of stacks wiped on both sides, mostly theirs duh.
Bohemia, demanding yet again to be a part of the festivities joined in!
This would be their last party.
I built even more armies because... why not?
It was complete chaos all across my northern front which was basically all across Europe. Armies from all over the place were marching around and dying. THIS was what it was all about. Killing them all!
I was having -such- a good time, I sorta didn't notice some rebels err yeah.
Reborn from rebels, Novgorod had become the only Russian minor left with more than 1 province.
They'd been allied with Castile oddly after the first rebels started there, and they were the first ones down.
Everyone was putting up such a good fight, it was unfortunate that they all had to die but this game theme was sorta like the highlander movie; There can be only one!
As this was going on, I was still finishing off my two first big 'thems' that really had to go. Tims and GH were both no more!
I can't even gues how many people were dying, but it was many! Eventually, only tiny 1-2k armies were left. I reorganized my forces and soon my enemies were burried under a blanket of OE arty stacks!
I'd been getting lots of crapy events either costing stab, bad slider moves, or negative research.
Finally, I got a good one! The game was rewarding my blind agression with more land tech!
Prussia was the next to fall. Well maybe Castille was first, but I wasn't letting them off with 'peace'.
I took 5 provinces outside of the HRE because I didn't want to make peace to remove any from Imperial domain.
Then 2pm Orissa sent me a warning. Bah! I had no CB. So I started a religious revolt hoping to flip them to a non-Muslim nation.
And that was that.
