It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Well, Russia is certainly buggered, I can see the Scandanavian Empire expanded all the way to Murmansk, plus maybe some Baltic land, and even some colonies if the Entente is defeated as a whole

Dr. Gonzo - Some English or French colonies would be great, I just hope things go that well for me.

Ahura Mazda I think that would be the best colonies to go after, im sure the French will be willing to give them up :cool:

The UK lands 11 more divisions in Emdem and 7 in Danzig

The Russians are in full retreat across the hole front, with a war exhaustion in the 50's it is only a matter of time until surrender.

21 days latter and Russia finally gives up, the Central powers celebrate whilst the Entente curse their luck.

Scandinavia gained Finland and Estonia for her role against Russia, and in return promised Germany they would stay as a full member of the alliance.

The Ottomans gained some grounds in Russia, as well as two protective buffer state against any Russian aggression.

Germany gained much lebensraum from Russia, as well as further weakening them through and independent Ukraine.

Austria was relatively unhappy with the lands she gained, but Gemany promised to make up for it when the rest of the Entente was delt with, she looks hungrily at the remains of Romania and Serbia.


In November Bulgaria joins the Central powers winning land off Romania, sneaky
The Australians also land dangerously close to the Ottoman capital

Later that month Greece joins the Entent.


Germany, Austria and Scandinavia are sending their armies West​

Austria should be truly pissed, I guess those province transfers were by Brest-Litovsk event?

Do you have any prospects of gaining ANYTHING from further war?
Maybe you should backstab Germans? (if allies agree for white peace, that is).

I suppose you could send troops through Germany to France, but hardly anything else with the Royal Navy in range

robou - We can give Germany a hand, im sure shes big enough to look after herself though

zdlugasz + Davisx3m - Austria did get screwed over by Brest-Litovsk, I will create an event to reward her when the war is through, she has Serbia and Romanisa under her control but thats not enough considering how well she did.

Ahura Mazda - Thats all I can do im afraid, as soon as my ships leave port the British are there with bigger guns.


cloneof - There was alot of high militancy but it seems to be decreasing under my rule. Estonia did spawn alot of rebles, they were... delt with

Its March 1st and the Ottomans are able to finally push into Africa

53288150ql3.bmp


With Austrian troops massive on the Italian boarder it looks like the southern front is about to get very bloody
The UK has also started landing in Austria now
63299871ff7.bmp


March
The Germans finally managed to break into northern France, but are there enough to take Paris and the south.

58351384bt7.bmp


April
France and the United Kingdom rush troops to the front to stabilize it, but with huge numbers of Germans marching west they will be hard pressed to turn the tide.

61529234yc7.bmp


May
Germans break through yet again, punishing the French with a huge battle at Chalons. Scandinavian troops arrive.
28781201nd8.bmp


A few days later and the USA is finally ready, declaring war on Germany, Scandinavia of course honors the alliance.
99159887vq7.bmp


With US reinforcements imminent the Germans attack with all they have got, the Scandinavian army spy an opportunity to capture Paris, but first they need to drive the French out of Laon.

75331858ws3.bmp


The battle was bloody, but the Scandinavians held as the French continued to throw division after division at them. One month the Scandinavians were surrounded by the remains of over 12 French divisions.

11013624fl4.bmp


During this time the Germans were able to take all of Belgium as well as Northern France, even advancing behind Verdun down into the center of France.
To fight at Laon the French had to strip troops from the defense of Paris.

11476974ez5.bmp


The English continue to ignore the struggle in France and land again on German shores.
The USA makes it self useful

Also Russia went bankrupt hehe​

I would say at this point it would make sense for Scandinavia to have cores on Finland. After all, Finnish is a national culture and Finland is part of Scandinavia. (Of course, as Herbert West pointed out, cores don't matter in Vicky the way they do in EU or HOI; still, it makes sense from the point of view of flavor for Scandinavia to have cores on Finland.)

I hope to have an update tonight or tomorow :D

truth is life - I gave myself the cores, now Finland is truly ours :)

robou - Not really but the rewards will hopefuly be worth the cost in life. I moded the event so lots of Entent troops appear in France when the US joined, lets see if they use them well.

demokratickid - Thanks alot, i think i will be ok manpower wise as long as i dont do anything to reckless. France still has some fight left in her.

Burris - The US may change things though. There jus gutted Russia lost so early.

Jaran - Thanks so much Im glad you like it. Maybe they will land devisions in Norway, that would make things interesting :D

I think you should give Austria western Ukraine and annex the rest of Romania / Bessarabia into it as well, they did way too much in the war to not be rewarded. Also maybe let Austria satellite East Ukraine?

Also, have the United States / Britain occupied Iceland and Greenland yet?

hasskugel - I am planning for them to anex Serbia and Romania, maybe some more of Italy? They have not captured Iceland and Greenland which is a nice suprise :)

Middle of July and we suffer our first assault from the sea, by Portugal. Of course with 5% attack efficiency they are doomed.

36730896vq1.bmp


Towards the end of July Paris is cut off from the rest of France, German and Scandinavian troops prepare themselves for a massive attack on the capital

91097702zg4.bmp


August 5th and the attack begins

38475083bc8.bmp


11 Scandinavian divisions under command of General Lewenhaupt led the attack against the 4 well entrenched French divisions. One week latter and the French rushed 3 more divisions to Paris but it was to late, especially with 13 German divisions set to arrive any day.

41911769gv9.bmp


Later that week and the Germans arrive, signaling the fall of Paris.

52487958ek3.bmp


The first of September was a great day for the Central Powers, not only did Paris fall but Belgium surrendered to Germany who took the Congo as well as alot of Land in Europe.

50136687mz9.bmp


The UK continues to land on the northern front.

59503746jb1.bmp


And then in early October alot more in France.

90065357eg9.bmp


Germany can stand no more of these landing so with Scandinavian support send a bloody message to the English

10xs6.bmp


A week and a half later and all these English troops are no more.

Good God. The Americans will likely be too little, too late.

Having decimated france, what's the next step? I've never played a WWI scenario and am curious as to the event chain for a central victory.

In the version I play the war generaly ends when you capture paris. That was really annoying because that meant the war was always over really quickly, and I needn't pay any attention to the russian front.
