If only wars were fought over as reasonable things as spelling or grammar... For now we have to make do with such a nebulous thing as power as the main casus belli.

I suspect you hadn't set Ansbach or Württemberg as your rivals, it can halve the discovery risk and while changing a rival may cost diplomatic power, setting it in the first place doesn't. The tool tip is a bit misleading.

Following, of course.

Hmm... I didn't know this. The full list of what rivalry does is a bit unbeknown to me. I know it has benefits when embargoing and such. And Württemberg should definitely be a rival of Ulm. It's a bit late to make Ansbach a rival at this point. But considering that I need alliances with Bavaria and The Palatinate for now, I am not just going to make rivals of everyone. Diplomacy is essence to a strategy for an OPM.

So are you going south to conquer those flag-stealing bastards again?
Ulm will not be pushed around by some two-bit flag thief!

Rivaling a country you go to war with is always a good idea, if any, you'll get more prestige from winning battles and peacedeals cost less diplopoints.

Poor Ulm. Don't worry, there will be a day when Ferrara falls and the strength of Austria fails him. But it is not this day.

You Sir are a genius!

I already loved the EU III AAR, it's awesome to read about the Ulm/Ferrara-story again. You really got me laughing at the Empire's Party part, simply awesome!:laugh:

Weiter so!
