The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. 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.
Now do you see the reason in my arguments from a few days ago?Its the battle of the one eyed versus the one legged as both sides grapple with the logistical impossibilities of fighting 4000 miles from supply depots.
Over 800k of my manpower was attrited just moving into position
It's not about winning the war, it's about winning the Peace (the negotiations leading to it... ) -And no more comment's from me here.. this IS the AAR' thread...Well by that account wouldnt you then be all there to making demands? I mean, duh you occupy his border provinces... so what...really do they win you the war ??
Looking at the last war you fought against Novgorod, you already made the same mistake twice. There's no victory in Siberia unless you outnumber your enemy atleast 2:1, with sufficient manpower reserves. You lack both - with Bavaria's involvement, Novgorod has both.We won every battle. The problem is that I underestimated the logistics issues.
I will not make the same mistake twice
Yes, lets attack russia to force him to WP us!!It's not about winning the war, it's about winning the Peace (the negotiations leading to it... )
I attack strawmen when they are making propaganda that doesen't fit to my observations. Im not defending jodokus here, nor speaking in behalf of him, Im speaking behalf of my own account, of what Ive witnessed and what Ive heard from the other side of the story.King of Men
Why this sudden attack of straw men for a war you're not even involved in? Let your brother write his own propaganda. The claim was that Jodokus had been winning the battles.
You occupy provinces in Eu3 wars if the enemy lets you occupy them. There are two ways that to happen, either by you enforcing your enemy to allow you to do it, or the enemy allows you to do it for his own reasons. It does not by anymeans automatically equall more won battles, nor specially in case of figting in poorly supplied land into having upper hand in the warSince in fact I am occupying about half the disputed area, it is clear that I have won more battles than I lost
Hey, by the historical standards of Mongol/Russian wars, this is a significant victory. Bells will be rung!Yes, lets attack russia to force him to WP us!!
You set up a straw man, namely that I had claimed to be winning the war.I attack strawmen when they are making propaganda that doesen't fit to my observations.
The Russian claims are somewhat vaguely associated with the truth: The Khanate has lost two stacks and destroyed four. That aside, when Blayne says "won every battle" he does not mean that literally every popup had the words "You Won" on it, but rather that after all re-engagements are accounted for, it was always the Russians who retreated. A battle for, let's say, Altai, may consist of the Khanate attacking with one stack, retreating after a few days, then two stacks hit the weakened Russians a couple of days later and win, driving them to retreat; then Russian reinforcements arrive and are driven off. Net strategic result: The Khanate won a battle. But the game reports it as one loss and two wins.which Blayne tried to shoot down noting, how they won battles, yet Jodokus accounted me that he wiped four stacks of you... and as much I've played eu3, I yet haven't seen stackwhipes happen without battle's beeing lost
The Khanate has advanced some distance into Russian territory, destroying several Russian armies on the way although also taking some losses, as recounted above. The Russian armies defending the border are now quite badly outnumbered and I'm about to destroy them in detail (assuming that the war continues), after which I will advance west to the Urals. Meanwhile the Qin armies have marched through Punjab to threaten Russia's southern flank, which is why Jodokus has not been able to use his full strength on the eastern border - he has to defend the south. However there are some logistical difficulties, as Blayne said. Negotiations are underway for a compromise peace.So what is the actual situation in the Russian front? From what I have gathered it seems that the Komgol-Qin alliance is at a significant disadvantage, but I can't say I have close knowledge of it.
