Seeing in another thread a mention of Russia being "moved" to Asia-then failing to figure out, here, what the exact idea is, what the pro's and con's are.. perhaps someone could enlighten me?

Some pro's/con's/changes I thought of:

No more ability to recruit mercenaries. (Human player only effect)
Europeans will not call allies when fighting Russia. (this might be a pro for early NVG (if that is to be Asia aswell) )
no location penalty for colonies in the corridor (imho, not quite what should be the case, Siberian colonies were, to my knowledge, not known for their exceptional growth)
Manpower from all Asian holdings, regardless of land connection.
No Manpower from European holdings, except when a land connection is present.

I'm not sure this IS actually true, but it does seem that way; intercontinental DoWs seem to be less frequent than same-continent DoWs (fe. making N. Africa part of Europe seems to get Europeans more involved in the area)
This could be positive again, early on, in protecting NVG and others from early aggression. It would ALSO, if it's true, help Russia focus more on getting the corridor opened.

Any things I have missed, have wrong, or you have a different opinion on?

some things that seem like an annoyance/bug (may already have been mentioned)

* I've gotten this event and it's brethren as Russia, they stink :mad:
Code:
 event = {
	id = 116003
	random = no
	trigger = {	
		NOT = { flag = STE }
	}
    	province = 458
	name = "The Khanate of Astrakhan"
	desc = "With the formation of the Nogai Khanate of Astrakhan, Nogai peoples in other nations began to revolt.
 They demanded the freedom to join their brethren in Astrakhan.
 Although there was no eagerness to give up land to the Nogai,
 granting them autonomy would prevent many headaches in the future."
	style = 1
	action_a ={
		name = "Let them do as they wish!"					
		command = { type = secedeprovince which = AST value = 458 } 
		command = { type = stability value = 1 }
		}
	action_b ={
		name = "We will let them be free, free to die!"					
		command = { type = desertion which = 458 value = 10000 }
		command = { type = stability value = -2 }
		command = { type = revolt which = 458 }
		command = { type = revolt which = 458 }
		command = { type = population which = 458 value = -100 }
		}
}
* Mongol(and ONE Khazak province- Khazak khanate was only one province when some event triggered that apparently changed culture) and Altai culture(and sunni religion) are quite widespread in the "western corridor" yet there doesn't seem to be a way to get them to become russian or tatar lateron. Now, as a human- I can *survive* it [though it's an annoyance] but I suspect the AI especially will bog down there..

1. To administrator:
Please don't ban Bash. His historical knowledge (especially about the economical problems) is very good. I don't agreed with his history concepts (IMHO economy is not always a decisive factor) but to read them is interesting and educational. His attitude towards me IMHO is not personal, it's just he did not like "Western Russia" ideas.

1) I don't care how much or how little history he knows, if he cannot discuss it in a friendly manner he goes.
2) As a friendly piece of advice I will point you to Board rule #2.

Fine. Thank you for you reminding. I won't answer any posts like "what if United States would appear in 200 years earlier then in real history".
Excuse me for my "lacking personal skills".
...
Pls, dear Castellon, explain your reaction on this statement - yourself, if you know aforementioned facts. Pls, add in to your knowledge the fact - the same guy proposed to make Great Prince of Lithuania as Russian ruler with making reference to numerous lithuanian popular sources, but wasn't aware about existing and existed lithuanian name for Russia (Krievia) at all.
What would be your own response onto guy which propose to make French King as HRE ruler, but isn't aware about french term "Allemagne"?
I would like to mind you - I tried to point on all these incongruencies for this guy earlier (you can check my previous numerous posts in rather friendly discussion with this guy yourself), but all was in vain.
If you are sure - that anyone is allowed to speak any quasi-historic nonsense "in friendly manner" and allows to himself to not hearing any "friendly reminders" about speaking nonsense, then you will got some quite interesting Forum, I'm afraid.

If you are sure - this post violated Forum policy as well, then make any move which you are considering to be proper. It will be your decision.

Excuse me, anyway.

Sincerely yours, Bash

If you want to be banned from the whole board you are going about it the right way!
This post clearly violates board rule #2, which I told you to read and review before posting again.

I also asked you to read the subforum rules which cover this situation specifically.
If you feel you have explained your position over and over again and the other person does not change their view to yours, then one of three things is happening.
1) Your view is wrong.
2) You are not explaining it clearly.
3) The other person is so entrenched in their own position that they are not listening to your argument.

You clearly feel that #3 is the case here, so what do you do, belittle the person in a condescending way or call them names.
No you IGNORE them. If they then get abusive to you, then you continue to ignore them and PM a Moderator.
This is not rocket Science we are I hope not children here, rather Adults and we should act like it.

I did not just poke my head in here, I received complaints on your actions.

This is the second time in a short while I have had to intercede in this subforum, the first time led to the new subforum rules, I don't see how I can make them any clearer.

Rather than having your posting privileges in this forum revoked, I will close this thread for a few days, to prevent you from self Destructing anymore. Also note that this would have all been sent by PM and thus private if you had not chosen to break board rules by responding in public.

To all members: I really would not open a new thread on this topic until this one reopens, as that is expressly prohibited under board rules.
