Nordic countries, at least some of them, should be done with the Soviet Union, considering the Winter War, Continuation War and Lapland War, Finland should be a guarantee, which should also include Sweden considering their intervention in the Winter War, and PDX loves doing Sweden whenever they get a chance. Denmark and Norway, if not done next, will likely be saved for the future in a sort of minor countries thing to fill in the gaps for similar countries, like Belgium and Luxembourg.

I haven't fully explored every path yet but from my understanding if you play Bulgaria and go monarchist but go against Boris and have Ferdinand take the throne it leads towards a Bulgarian led Byzantium.

Ah, sorry, I did not specify, since it's the Greece DD. I meant when playing as Greece.
Because it seems to me that torestore Byzantium as Grece you have to be fascist.

That's a bummer, going for Byzantium should mean embracing the Roman legacy and moving away from primarily being a Bulgarian state, so you'd think cores would be given, kind of lame.

Ah, sorry, I did not specify, since it's the Greece DD. I meant when playing as Greece.
Because it seems to me that torestore Byzantium as Grece you have to be fascist.

Yeah I probably should've taken that view, yeah to form Byzantium it seems you have go fascist from the democratic path, which is quite silly in my opinion. Should be a monarchist sub-branch at least.

I hope the The Soviet Union DLC should be the most epic stuff they will did on this game, and very bigger, otherwise I will be disappointed.
if it’s just another regular DLC, I’m not going to be very interested.

All neighbors of the soviet union must have some attention, not only nordics, the Soviet Union DLC should not be a "Nordic/Baltic Sea DLC" in disguise, if it so, it will be very mediocre.

They cut Italy when doing France, Spain and Portugal, and with the Soviets being first, they won't be done until late 2021 or 2022, no one is safe, sadly

Jesus fucking christ. I nearly had a heart attack. I thought there was a new dev diary that already made it to twenty pages while I wasn't looking.

Don't necro threads.

I completely agree. For five years, one of the main countries did not receive any changes. Justifying this by the fact that it will be a very large-scale work. And if it is not something absolutely gorgeous and grandiose it will be ... a disappointment and not a purchase.
