Cant remember as I played this a few weeks ago, but does it really matter if it was 1 or 3 ships against such an overwhelming force?

Pirates don't have any special bonus other than having their naval-land slider set permanently to 0. Their higher tech in these battles (and superior leader in one) would make a difference, but it must have been bad die rolls that really did it. One good roll should instantly wipe out the pirates with that kind of advantage.

(I'm planning to display the die rolls instead of those "power" values in the combat screen in 1.3 to make this more transparent.)

They were at war with Mongolia, which was far from being a neighbor of mine.

EDIT : To be precise :
(chinese) wardates = {

AST = { day = 21 month = august year = 1526 }

BAL = { day = 28 month = february year = 1529 }

BIJ = { day = 10 month = february year = 1491 }

BLK = { day = 24 month = september year = 1515 }

CAM = { day = 21 month = november year = 1478 }

DAI = { day = 26 month = march year = 1423 }

DLH = { day = 0 month = december year = 1518 }

GUJ = { day = 11 month = november year = 1528 }

KHO = { day = 17 month = september year = 1537 }

LUA = { day = 28 month = february year = 1481 }

MCH = { day = 12 month = october year = 1445 }

MNG = { day = 18 month = march year = 1536 }

PEG = { day = 21 month = november year = 1478 }

SIB = { day = 21 month = august year = 1526 }

STE = { day = 21 month = august year = 1526 }

}

EDIT2 : I had a few things in India :
city = { name = "New Nice" population = 146.894 location = 549 }

tradingpost = { name = "New Piemonte" level = 1 location = 548 }

tradingpost = { name = "New Savoy" level = 1 location = 1965 }

So, apart from the usual suspects, we also have Connaught, holding Champagne and Vendeé, Desmond holding on to Orléanais, and, amazingly GRANADA holding more of France than its native claimant to the throne.

A government fall caused these takings (except Armor), and before you ask, I'm Hussites.

I was playing AGCEEP with the "Kingdom of Germany" option, and successfully formed it as Austria. The end result was rather more wanky than I had planned.

I knew I should have done the historical thing and waited until the end of the Thirty Years War to pounce. :(

Still have more than 30 years to continue annexing but it's getting quite monotonous to be honest. :)

From my experience, doing something similar as you did there is relatively easy with Austria. I never conquered Great Britain, but continental Europe I was able to do it. Usually the 18th century was just waiting for the game to end and BB to drop. :)

Buryat Horde as ally even though I can't see them and don't have diplomatic relations with them... After I banned Russia from my alliance I got stuck with them, don't know how it's possible (Russia had recently made them vassals).

Here's an... interesting AI Timurid Empire in 1766:



(This was in MEP v0.01; fortunately I've never seen it happen in later versions...)
