Also: I'm quite pleased myself with how things went. The first decade or so was mostly spent getting to grips with the mod. A lot of the changes are generally fairly subtle though -- and provided you play with the mindset of, "If it was too good to be true in vanilla, it's probably not going to work quite the way I intend here" there aren't really big surprises.

(It's my fault, I'll update the map ... there, it's done)
The session went quite well... however inflation has ran rampant to maintain an almost continuous war effort against various opponents, as such much effort will be required to control it. On the bright side, things went better then in my single-player tests! Also those stability costs are killing me :x
The map in the first page was updated. About statistics: most values won't be properly computed by the traditional tool, but they would obviously inform us about province numbers, income, inflation and armies. Could somebody volunteer to update statistics.
Here's some numbers for you to think over:
If you lose the war it's your mistake, as you have more manpower, income and provinces so it won't be due to some hypothetical imparity.
Poland: 15 provinces, 13.2 ducats per month, 20 regiments, 28K manpower
Russia: 21 provinces, 14.3 ducats per month, 19 regiments, 36K manpower
Poland got 33% higher land tech than Russia
Poland got a never ending alliance with Austria
Poland got a 12k lith vassal army.
Poland got 45% less inflation
Should also remember that Silktrader is a player who have own everyone since 2007 and just to quote Elcy*

You're always evil.
you haven't any ally there?
If not, you should try to counterbalance the alliance between Poland/Austria with a diplomacy approach...
Did you try to speak with England/Sweden/Hansa/Ottoman....?
I agree that Silktrader is more powerfull than you if Austria help him but in a 1 vs 1 i think you have your chance. So i don't understand why you're complaining... You're not so weak xD
This doesn't mean i will help. France has no intention to intervene between you. I have my own "enemies"

Guess i am just cannon fodder to be sacrifice.
Just look what i have done to Moskva in one session (second highest inflation, lowest Land tech, etc)
You're always evil.
what is this talk of a perma-alliance between Austria and Poland?
Pills i don't remember when you ask on the game for help... Maybe you should send some pm and stop complaining on public.
Another thing is that i check on the save, and Austria and Poland aren't ally now.

I won't exclude an alliance with Austria in the future, just as I won't exclude alliances with any country if the circumstances demand it. There were talks concerning the Polish sale of Upper Lusatia to Austria, and reassurances about Poland steering clear of Germany but these matters will have to be sorted with Saharez, should he desire to resume talks.
Unlike Russia, which finds itself in a corner position, Poland doesn't have the luxury of alienating its every neighbour, by generously agreeing to whichever alliances. I will carefully pick my suitors: make sure they come from good families, that they are well bred, educated handsome, obviously and gentleman like.
