A-H is formable by focus in the DoD Hungary tree. They showed Germany getting a focus to integrate Alsace-Lorraine and Luxembourg last Dev stream
I know austria-hungary is formable for HUNGARY, but it would only be logical to give Austria a cosmetic tag if they annex Hungary,don't you think so?

@Broletariat90 I guess you can give a country some land in a peace conference in non historical mode and they will do it but of course it's not up to me to confirm this.

I think that devs are trying to say something to us...

Why not Rome II? Syria will resurrect the Seleucids at this point.

More serious not for @podcat: can we have the dimension of the decision icons in order to prepare some gfx in advance?

They've already said the AI won't use the non-plausible options

Only in historical which is ”NO DEVIATION ALLOWED”. Would love a level in between that and ”lol EU4 memes”. ”Plausible” or something. Gran Colombia, Baltic Federation and Scandinavia are pretty realistic, Byzantium is... less so.

(This particular one is also available if you form Austria-Hungary through the Hungarian focus tree)
Since they wrote "also", it's only logical to assume that it's for a Austria-Hungary which has been reformed by Austria
Only in historical which is ”NO DEVIATION ALLOWED”. Would love a level in between that and ”lol EU4 memes”. ”Plausible” or something. Gran Colombia, Baltic Federation and Scandinavia are pretty realistic, Byzantium is... less so.
If Greece (or any other candidate) can achieve this level of dominance in the region, then your game is already not plausible at all

Any chance that Greater Hungary focus (national focus for Hungary) will give cores on Vojvodina and Carpathian Ruthenia and Eastern, Western Slovakia?

Nice diary. I like the ability to gain cores on other territories. Will you need to fully annex the lands or is enough that they are occupied?

Puppeting countries to just get the manpower out of them was always a bit fiddly. This system is much better for small countries expanding. Its useful in multiplayer too, Estonia can take over those lands and get the valuable cores and manpower and then join Comintern.

Byzantium without having to take Cyprus from the British? For shame ;)

Do you always get full cores on the territory required to form the nations, because if so then yes please!
