Thread: [Forum Game] - World in Revolution: 1861

    OOC: To be fair they are completely capable of destroying Brazilian fleet, disrupting trade and bombarding some coastal cities and supplying Triple alliance with arms. And with USA being pre-occupied with CSA they might even get away with it.

    OOC: The Spanish arms are equal to the arms of the Argentines. The Brazilians have much better quality at the moment in men and material.

    OOC: They have 1 ironclad, that is not invincible. Besides there are other logistical reasons that will help Brazil (shorter supply lines for one...)

    OOC: Though Spain is likely playing with fire, just by being at war Brazil has to send 30-40k men to garrison important coastal cities since 15k Spanish on a raid vs 0-5k defenders will win. Their difference in the war will most likely just be forcing Brazil to divide their forces to avoid a possible sneak landing seizing a vital city/harbor. Same with their fleet.

    OOC: Maybe but Spain just got out of a devastating war, one wonders what its population will think of going off on such an adventure when there are still internal problems particularly in Catalonia. Well that and amphibious assault is quite difficult, particularly in this day and age. Just my two cents.

    OOC : Well, coastal defenses + my fleet are enough to hurt the spanish fleet...
    And like it was said, the spanish arms probably suck, they won't make a great difference...

    Also, you saw what happened when i wanted to blockade Argentina? No one wanted me to block their trade, now Brazil is a lot bigger and has a lot more resources, do you know what can happen if they try to blockade me?

    (And amphibious assaults? Spain would collapse with ease if they tried to go into such a big adventure)

    I just need to keep some conscripts guarding some regions, even if Spain sent regulars they wouldn't be able to do a lot.


    Futhermore, sinking the spanish ironclad = destroying their morale and hurting their stability
    It's obvious that they have great pride on their little ship.


    Might make an IC topic later after lunch, also, my population probably will get more willing to fight in the war after this

    OOC: Its population liked it very much, they even gained +1 stability. (This isn't 20th century)

    OOC : They liked the spanish fleet being victorious for once, but i don't think they will enjoy it that much if suddently Spain goes all-out on a new war.
    The catalans might take this opportunity to revolt...

    OOC: They gained stability from the naval scrimish, if anything the war destabilized them, ie Catalonia, whose population is rather restive and likely have little love for Spain. The perfect time for them to rebell is when the army is elsewhere... This what I meant, not war is bad, by jingo it's good

    OOC: Oh dear, Spain flexing its muscles in South America. I'm not sure anybody in Latin America would like that...(well, except for those embroiled in the war against Brazil but...)

    How about we do not collectively predict the future effects of every single IC post we read, especically not in OOC, and not here?

    OOC: Nice speculation on what is going to happen if Spain does x. Keep it up. Brazil, I'm still open for peace, though.

    OOC: Spain has a few things going into their favor. !. They already got a victory against the Brazilians and destroyed a few ships. 2. Brazil is busy in a war with 3 other countries, one being a regional power. 3. I doubt the Catalans would revolt, they got invaded by Spain recently and got devastated themselves, I doubt they want to attempt another revolt, especially without France's help.

    OOC: Catalonia didn't get invaded by Spain whatsoever. They were invaded by France, though.
