I found myself between a rock and a hard place: a war of expansionism to the South-West against Mexico, and within days a Civil War versus the Dixies to the South-East. However, I had prepared, and split my forces evenly to maintain a safe central U.S. and eventually occupy both opponents.
What follows would have been the end to a perfect story of war and glory... 'Would have', that is, if it had resulted in the victory I had in mind. The CSA, once fully occupied and it's fleets pushed out of port into my blockade, went peacefully. But my Mexican neighbours were having none of it, and despite having a warscore of 100, completely occupying their country and having kept up the occupation for what must have been 2-3 years, they would not accept my 150-warscore peace demands.
So, with no way of increasing my warscore further, nor discouraging the Mexicans from putting down their sticks and stones, I had to forfeit the 'Add To Sphere' war goal I had added last, just to end the war.
Surely I'm not the only one who thinks that the apparent warscore cap is a very limiting factor in a large war? Was there any way I could've gotten around it, without loosing the 20 Prestige for failing that wargoal?
Cheers in advance,
