Well, I guess you're right, but it's the wrong mindset, IMO.
Burgundy is #1 when the game starts, as far as income and number of troops are concerned.
They should be afraid of you, not the other way around.
But I guess that after fearing the Big Blue Blob (France) for a while, the thought of actually beating them early is unthinkable
The resources required to fight France is not worth the potential loss later on. Grabbing colonies, expanding trade, getting ideas, those things are infinitely more valuable and satisfying in the long run than taking some war torn province. Blobbing for the sake of snowballing even more... how is that even fun?
