What's another war? Apr 1st to Jun 30th 1817

Von Borberek takes Aarhus and now attempts the Odense crossing.

In the east the Galloper Army has arrived to find the Moldavians at Cernowitz and the Wallachians at Karlsburg. They head for Cernowitz. Other troops should arrive in theatre soon.

Von Borberek makes it to Odense brushing aside a unit of Danish cavalry before laying siege to the town.

On the Algerian border our envoys are once again rebuffed by the Moroccans.
waw1_zps8a63982e.jpg


The British make a continental landing.
waw2_zps5fab546b.jpg


Von Bellegarde begins the long march to Sicily.

Karl's army crosses the Moroccan border and lays siege to Spanish Melila.

Von Wurtemburg who was heading for Ceuta, marches into the sandy interior to counter Moroccan movement.
waw3_zpsd6da4d71.jpg


A lone British transport is spotted, it proves to be an ambush!
waw4_zps9333ae17.jpg


At Taza von Wurtemburg drives back the locals.
waw5_zpsded0858c.jpg


In the east Kollowrath-Krakowski overruns the Wallachians at Karlsburg and marches for Plevne.

Josef's troops reach Kutlofca and begin a siege.

Von Wurtemburg reaches the Moroccan capital of Fes. After defeating a local mob the army is split with half staying to lay siege to the city and half pushing west to invest Tanger. The Moroccans repeatedly attempt to break out.
waw6_zpsce52c3fd.png


Kollowrath-Krakowski's army splits in two to lay siege to both Plevne and Rushuk.

The Galloper Army is in Moldavia waging economic warfare. There appears to be building work in each province there, the army gallops across the land laying ruin to them all.

We adopt the Army Corps idea.

Frederica falls.
waw7_zps57b0d6c4.jpg


Odense falls when von Borberek makes a breach in it's walls.

Denmark capitulates.
waw8_zps3c22f349.jpg


After only 40 days of siege Kutlofca surrenders.

Construction begins on a depot at Kiel.

Civilised development begins at Warschau.

Josef reaches and storms Filibe.

The British land in Holland. With plenty of warning a reception is prepared.
waw9_zpsdecd217d.jpg


Another transport appears and starts to disembark troops, von Hiller awaits their arrival.

Plevne surrenders the leaderless troops move east to lay siege to Silistre.

Out of nothing more than spite and revenge the empire continues to grow. If Denmark had stayed out of matters that didn't concern them we wouldn't have ended up with territory that far north.

On land we work on the principle if we can reach you, you will suffer. On sea we just have to suck it up and take our beatings in silence.

Despite lacking any form of leadership on the seas Austria is managing to project her power across the Mediterranean, good work. It is a shame the long unloading times have held back your original plans, but they hardly seem to have dented the ambition if the Empire. Good work, with 2 and a half years remaining it appears to be a case of how much, rather than what conquests are to be made.

Thank you, spite and viciousness will continue to drive Greater Austria onwards :)

When they fix the game I'm going to do a Dallas, von Wurtemburg will awake in a Viennese Coffee house and realise what a horrible dream he has had. I'll then reload it from just after the Brits declared war and play out the last few years, I may even post it as a mini AAR.

Don't say you haven't been warned :)

Six months of attrition Jul 1st to Dec 31st 1817

From his conquest of Filibe, Josef marches his army south to the Aegean coast before swinging east to attack Edirne from the south.

Having finished it's raiding war in Moldavia the Galloper Army had settled into siege work at Iasy. After 61 days the city surrenders. The army ride east for Ismail.

In Spanish Morocco Karl accepts the surrender of Melilla after 76 days of siege. Next target Ceuta.

The Egyptians have gone on the assault in Palestine. This is the furthest the Egyptians ever seem to advance into Ottoman territory.
6moa2_zps391a625b.jpg


Satellite troops pour into the eastern theatre of the wars.
6moa3_zps401911a8.jpg


The siege iof Tanger is lifted!
6moa4_zpsddcf784d.jpg


Edirne surrenders.
6moa5_zps20d22d4c.jpg


The next day Rushuk falls to assault.
6moa6_zps7e371751.jpg


Kollowrath-Krakowski marches this half of his army to lay siege to Kostantinyye.

Karl diverts from the march on Ceuta to strike the Moroccans.
6moa7_zps32c94872.jpg


Josef storms Burgas.
6moa8_zpsf131d562.jpg


West of Kostantinyye only Ismail and Silistre are not in Austrian hands.

The road upgrade project in Veldes is completed.

Civilised development is started in Graz province.

At the Straits of Messina the navy attempts to drive off the British and clear a crossing to liberate Sicily.
6moa9_zpsda973b6d.jpg


Josef crosses the Dardanelles and marches for Bursa.

Spain offers a white peace which we refuse. Perhaps if we can take Ceuta we can get something from the war.

Sweden joins Britain's coalition. A week later they fail to declare war on us.

At Silistre the ungeneralled half of Kollowrath-Krakowski's army storm the city. They begin the march to Kostantinyye.

Fes falls after 85 days of siege.

Karl marches for Tanger, von Wurtemburg's army lay siege to Ceuta.

Somehow we manage to slip the British blockade and attack a British transport off Minorca.
6moa10_zpse8f16515.jpg


The Algerians lose a transport, as do the British, which only had 5000 troops on board.

Josef storms Bursa and targets Izmit next.

Depot construction in Kiel completes.

Off Messina our navy tries to force another crossing for our army.

The Falling of Cities Jan 1st to Mar 31st 1818

The Navies sacrifice proves worthwhile, von Bellegarde crosses to Messina and liberates the city.

The blockade of our navy at Genova is lifted, in fact all the naval blockades appear to have been. I decide to start combining fleets. From Genova the fleet will sail down Italy to link up with the contingent in Sicily.

Sweden rejoins the British coalition.

Josef breaches the walls of Izmit and sacks the city. His army will now raid across Anatolia until the Ottoman's learn their place.

The fleet makes it safely to Reggio di Calabria.

Eskisehir falls to Josef.

The British on Sicily are caught at Palermo.
tfoc1_zpsfa3b73b2.jpg


Sweden joins the war against us.
tfoc2_zps2995ee93.jpg


We have 3 armies in the northwest guarding against British landings and French or Prussian adventurism. Ferdinand marches his to Stralsund.

The British on Sicily are caught at Messina and dispatched.
tfoc3_zpsadd49bd9.jpg


Von Bellegarde's army start the crossing attempt back onto the mainland.

Cutting a swathe across Ottoman territory, Josef reaches Konya and puts it to the sword.
tfoc4_zps110b321e.jpg


At Ismail the Galloper Army accepts the surrender.
tfoc5_zps74a71343.jpg


Von Wurtemburg's depleted forces accept the surrender of Ceuta.
tfoc6_zps9a12c61b.jpg


From Tanger half of Karl's army and the remains on von Wurtemburg's strike for Fes.
tfoc7_zps28f44196.jpg


Josef storms Kayseri.

Tanger falls.
tfoc8_zpsfea980d8.jpg


Morocco joins our ranks.

Prussia seeking to gain an advantage declares war on Sweden, the Ottomans honour their coalition treaty and declare war on the Prussians.

With nothing better to do at the moment I send a diplomat to the Danes, would they kindly let me march an army or two through their country to visit Sweden?

I think they must have taken the loss of Kiel personally as they refuse.

Back east Josef's storming continues unopposed, minor resistance is met as Adana is taken. Iskenderun likewise falls almost undefended, then Aleppo.

The march down the Levant slows as news of actual Ottoman field armies operating against the Egyptian held cities to the south arrives!
tfoc9_zps3ea8ac97.jpg


We have an event occur, Carl Maria von Weber, something about theft and poison, we pick an option that gives us idea points.

Spain reoffers a white peace. This is refused, I shall see what stage we are at and make a counter offer.

The Galloper Army crosses into Anatolia and rides for Sinope.

Great news to end the month. Kostantiniyye falls, the garrison who have been offered to leave peacefully decide (as they always do) to fight outside the city walls and are destroyed.
tfoc10_zps7c7b572c.jpg


<I think there needs to be a change in the surrender rules for cities, perhaps when they surrender the manpower could be added to the national total, rather than the usual "we give them terms then slaughter them">

Satellite Nations Apr 1st to Jun 30th 1818

Josef assaults Beyrut, hopes of drawing a nearby Ottoman army into the battle are dashed when they flee south.
satnat1_zps072fdab0.jpg


The British blockades of all our navies is once again lifted, cue desperate rushes for ports to repair and reinforce!
satnat2_zps7b7f16bf.jpg


The desperate flight tips us over the edge into another idea, Satellite Nations! Why hadn't we thought of this before? We could take smaller countries and have their armies swarm the enemy.
This innovation gives 10% reduction in peace costs, just what the Ottomans wanted!
satnat4_zpsf552afd0.jpg


Our breakout from Algeria ends.
satnat5_zpsca3a136a.jpg


As does the one at Reggio.
satnat6_zps89cf8010.jpg


However at Reggio the Brits fail to reinstate the blockade and our fleet manages to sail to the far end of the Med and sink an invasion fleet.
satnat8_zps4b2fcad2.jpg


Our warscore against Britain has dropped to 16%, we test the ground for peace. Westphalia would cost only 1%. They would not accept even this.

On their way home our fleet at sea encounter another British transport off Crete.
satnat9_zps2579fce5.jpg


Another 1800 drowning redcoats in the Med.

In all the confusion and excitement Spain had slipped down the priority list, we test the waters for peace on our terms. The Spanish will not budge and we have to accept that without invading through France or risking an naval landing....
satnat10_zpsedc44695.jpg


Creeping home the navy meets the Brits yet again, and again, and again.
satnat11_zpsd3d48372.jpg


Warshau development completes.

At Stralsund von Borberek replaces Ferdinand's army in siege duties.

Is it my impression or the AI is a bit dumb in this game? At least as dumb as Vicky 2 regarding transports it seems :)

The British AI seems rather lax about transports, but then they have almost total domination of the seas, and it's rare to actually reach them without having to flee to port 3 or 4 times on the way. Also the current naval landing bug means it's not a quick sail in and land for them like it used to be so increasing the chance of slipping out and hitting them.
There also seems to be a cycle as far as blockades are concerned as every so often the AI sails away from them all, however there are just so many British ships around with nothing much to do that you don't get far before running into them again. I got very lucky on the way to Cyprus.

France on the other hand has a naval stack with warships and transports of over 40 vessels <coming soon>. Spain in this game has no navy at all, it's either been sunk or captured, Russia seems not to have bothered investing one. Until recently I had the second largest navy and I was about 60 ships behind. I think the Ottomans are now 2nd and France 3rd.

Bowing to the Inevitable Jul 1st to Dec 31st 1818

One lone ship breaks out and links up with the returning victors of Cyprus and Crete.

Elsewhere naval movement continues as normal.
btti1_zps75c68458.jpg~original


On land things are going better.
btti5_zps82ef4baf.jpg


Sweden offers a White Peace, as always we refuse.

The British try to land on Rodos.
btti6_zps879d2d00.jpg


This must be our lucky fleet!

Or perhaps not.
btti7_zpsa1549c23.jpg


I've had enough, we can't float a matchstick without it being attacked and we can't force a land confrontation. Better to lose face than have this drag on much longer.
btti8_zps7e1a5b3b.jpg


Still it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
btti9_zpsa20e0c09.jpg


With money to burn we start port construction work at Kiel, once it's completed I shall start building a Baltic fleet. <spoiler alert> 12 months later I find out that I can't build ships there just repair them.

A quick look at the headline figures.
btti10_zps67b2d82e.jpg


We are at peace, time to do what needs to be done in peace time. Build.

And look for the next target.

Civilised development work begins at Pilsen and is completed at Graz.

So.... Time for a little petty revenge.

Britain wants Portugal, Spain wants Portugal. With troops in Portugal we could kick the Spanish should we end up at war with them again, more importantly we could attack Spain to get at Gibraltar!

Portugal has a navy of about a dozen warships and some transports on top. The Imperial fleets mass and begin to sail for southern Portugal, an army is landed at Tanger. The transports sail back to Genova to bring up another.

France tells us of an Imperial Wedding.
btti11_zpsd82c39bb.jpg


No, really NO! Not ever, not in any way, no how! If you think this is anything but a harbinger for war you are sadly deluded my freakishly short Corsican corporal!

We repond diplomatically.
btti12_zpsac5c2cb9.jpg


In response France guarantees Portugal and a navy of 49 ships sails past my fleet off the Portugese coast. Invasion plans are hastily shelved and new ones drawn up.

Russia lightens my day by declaring war on the Prussians.

It takes the best part of 2 months to get the troops back from Morocco and into their new jumping off points.

So new year, new beginnings but somehow strangely familiar.

On the Rhine frontier Kollowrath-Krakowski's army, which has already been split for the invasion, is split again to lay siege to Colmar.

Von Borberek's army splits at Koblenz to relaunch the siege of Koln.

Plans change.

Munster is relieved.

The Galloper Army reaches Briancon and begins the job it was always meant for, hunting down small French armies.

The French strike viciously at Landau. 15000 guard with 3000 supporting cavalry inflict 12000 casualties on the besieging forces for the loss of less than 2500 men! <and I've lost the screen shot>

Not for the French apparently, and those casualties were when I was watching the fight and desperately trying to withdraw, I suspect if I'd left the army alone it would have been wiped out. Might have made more of a fight of it but the Austrian army was ungeneralled, one of Kollowrath-Krakowski's subdivisions.

Ferdinand strikes Mouton at Landau.

Koblenz falls.
ga2_zps9644e1d0.jpg


After taking Koblenz von Borberek storms Trier then marches west for Charlerville-Mezieres.

Charlerville-Mezieres falls, so begins the latest storm raid across France. South to Reims.

The Galloper Army strikes again.
ga3_zps3c0cbde8.jpg


The blockade of southern France is rethought!
ga4_zpsb591b52f.jpg


But if there is one thing the Austrian Navy is good at, it's running from a fight. We manage to escape without loss.

Reims is stormed.

Colmar falls.
ga5_zps3ca88bda.jpg


Some of our blockade fleets are slower than others.
ga6_zpsbc5e1ae0.jpg


Troyes falls to storm.

We adopt Squares, +0.5 increase to army morale.

The French Guard sally out at Landau.
ga7_zps9123ee13.jpg


In the south the Galloper Army is racing around between Chambery, Grenoble, Valence and Briancon striking at lots of French units who appear to be using the area as a muster point. By the end of the war they have inflicted 24,127 French casualties for the loss of 4,768.

Nevers falls to storm.

Nice falls to Josef.
