Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
What Blayne said, and what I also said in the post just before yours: My landtech was 16 (ish) at the time, while Bavaria's was above 18. (As for Punjab, the less said the better.) Apart from the shock multipliers, which don't change so rapidly in this regime, this means that Bavaria had twice our Tactics modifier, which means he would take half the damage all else equal - which of course it wasn't. Pile terrain and a good general on top of that, and you get a massive defeat.What does the origin of the unit have to do with their combat performance again?
No offense Golle but wars seem very practical to me. Considering the constant wars happening in Asia as the Euros press their advantage, the benefits seem, to this peanut, to outweigh anything else right now.Well I must say that the conversion that weightes the provinces with the ammount of time they have been "yours" is basicly making wars non-practical. DW itself allready makes one thinking twice over the conquering spiral, adding even more proplems to them is not going to improve things at all. (expecially when Europe entered into Eu3 in the diplomatical situation that they did)

You're quite right, I won't fail.
You sir may not regain the Endless City back or exact your revenge against the Shamshirs and Saifs, but you have already won for who are Arminius but a fabled rebel against the Roman Empire. What are Persia but a Nemesis to the Rome. What are Carthage remembered for if not for its adversary to Roman Republic. Would we even know what Alaric first of his name was if there was no Rome?You're quite right, I won't fail.
Now, it is perhaps permissible to doubt just how much of this white glow was actually experienced by any given factory worker getting up at five in the morning. But even if they felt it, say while listening to Churchill snarling defiance on the radio or seeing bombers overhead, a white defiant glow does not a victory make. No doubt there was defiance in Belgium too, which had just capitulated; and as for what the German soldiers felt in 1943, when they were being driven back on every front and yet they kept fighting for two years, I can't imagine. (Indeed, it puzzles me greatly: What the devil did the German soldiers think they were fighting for, in 1943 and onwards? Some sort of negotiated peace?) Just because you have an inspiring story in which you are the defiant hero, does not mean you are going to win. There have been thousands of defiant last stands that ended in "and the men having died, the women were kept as slaves for the rest of their days; and their names are forgotten". No doubt the Amalekites, the Philistines, and the Midianites had a story to tell too, of heroic resistance against the invader; who knows, perhaps there was a "white sublime glow" when they went out to fight. "And Israel warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males. And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword. And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods. And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire."Churchill said:I was sure that every Minister was ready to be killed quite soon, and to have all his family and possessions destroyed, rather than give in. In this they represented the House of Commons and almost all the people. [...] There was a white glow, overpowering, sublime, which ran through our island from end to end.
Depends whether you view Josepos as being on the losing side or not... I would say his depiction of the Jewish campaign has an epic character, a futile struggle that the losers refused to surrender. Not only Mazada, which has become a legend in its own right, but also the siege of Jerusalem, and even the siege Yodfat carries great dramatic wheight, and although it is a story of defeat, of cruelty and internal bickering, it is ultimately a story of defiance.But epic poetry about defending the last ditch is never written by the losing side.
