Impressive stuff. Something is fucked up in the HoI 2 files though, because as I played as Finland from 1936 to 1938, using historical paths, I didn't even have a 2nd techteam yet, I had 7 national dissent and the same army as in 1936. I had just 2 technologies researched by then.

That is why I wonder that, when instead starting HoI 2 as Finland from the year 1938, there's alot bigger army with some airforce, more techteam slots and overall very good situation. So as I've learned now, there's no point in starting the game in 1936 as Finland, because you'll end up in worse situation in 1938.

You get dissent from changing ministers and you don't get tech teams for free. You have to have 20 IC to get your second tech team. It has nothing to do with the start date, that's just how the game works.

Yeah, but it's impossible to build 5 factories to Finland in 1936-1938. :(

@Enewald: If so, in thie war every Finnish citizen ever living in those parts will die by the end of the war. And they will be ressurected, just to die again. Zombie Finnish armies.
@M4 Emperior: GER invested in everything. At the moment, they have half the RM, 200% the UK/US airforces combined and ~1250 divs. Go figure.
@Middelkerke: They didn't get to the frontiers yet and guess what, they were produced in the last month or so.
@Sarganto: Done already, no damn reason why. Everything was running WAD.
@TRP: Vanilla with +0.1 homeland MP.
@TombolaG: Expect it when the war is over.

Update 6: I think we lost an update somewhere in mid-1942

Breaking news, these years are really boring so I did an update on nations that are screwed. On the left, Communist Chine VS. The Ming Empire v2.

The winner is obvious.

Japan is doing surprisingly well for a nation kicked out of China.

Fidlee dee dee. Running for the 102 energy gulag-land in the tundras to fix the economy.

Buh-bye Stalin. Having two jobs as HoG is a bad thing for you. Assasination 100%.

Welcome to Stalingrad. No last stand, no "FOR THE MOTHERLAND" postures, but three divisions getting overran by 40. I envy Rommel in those moments. He would have 40 Iron Crosses by now.

Ming's back.

Victory on this frontier was so close. Only three provinces and I would get entire Siberia for myself. Well have fun with the partisants, Germany.

Last pic. Guess who's doing Sealion.
Update concluded.

First, you need to rebuild all our Bitter Peace events so that you should gain and colonise all by yourself conquered ground, or create some post - BP German help (IC mod with oil, rares, etc) with only gained Estonia, Segezha, Kola, Arkangeli and Petersborg.



Second, are you planning to balkanise British Isles (indepedent England, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland to Ireland?)

@TRP: It seems like you're talking about conquering Germany.
@M4 Emperior: Not needed. Not at all. And the British Isles go 100% to me, since from all the things in the game only I know how to defend it properly. And I mean this one.
Okay, so updates are coming in less time now, but their quality is gonna drop a bit. This one is a mini-update since the game crashed.
__________________
Update 7: How the East was won, again

Interesting, isn't it?

Okay. ROK DoWing the SU, while no land connection is available because China took Vladivostok. This might have potential.

Ahahahaha oh wow. On the left, my elite army, on the bottom, China "protecting" itself from SU's aggression. And so Xibei San Ma is the only warlord that will survive till '48. It's lucky after all.

Well, for three years I've built inf divisions and convoys. This was the only reason I did it. And to note, that broke after a week. Pfft.

Here's how it ends now, 2'nd of December 1944. Then I started cycling the units to see how's it going and flew into an embarked corps in the middle of nowhere, probably the North Pole.
Update concluded.

Yes. They'll grab core Mongolia in no time. You need to improve relations with the Chinese Republic because of their resources.

@Enewald: Everywhere in Asia in an overall. Basically everywhere east and north of India.
@M4 Emperior: Not needed. Germany already siezed what is possible to sieze and we have a good surplus of materials for me to buy.

Well, this one is a turning point. Trying not to spoil so hard, expect something you've seen in almost all of my AAR's.
___________________
Update 8: Empires fall, new ones are born.

I create Scotland for the resources and maybe they'll guard my stuff so I don't have to keep my garrisons in. That basically kills the idea of the 100% Finnish islands.

As always, I take a few Central American countries.

Bulgaria took Istanbul.

Oh shi- USA is now radical leftwing. Who broke it?

India's going down.

Ah, finally. Years of tech rushing finally come to an use. Finland shall have nukes!

India's almost down.

My first reactor. I couldn't make it due to lack of IC before.

Aww crap. -1300 oil daily. Is Rommel having a party in here? Or did the entire Wermacht's tanks suddenly came to drink some of the cheapest vodka they've got on stock in Helsinki?

Hmm, I think it was me breaking the USA. Dissent from no intervention while I annexed the minors in Central America, maybe? But if so why Canada has insurgents?

More insurgency.

Turkey's down, Germany's gonna run for the last VP's the UK haves. Hope they don't get the UK surrenders event.

Now that's a lot of partisants. 34 divisions. That gives us 34000 men revolting against the government. Nice job.

Ah what the hell. My puppet is offering me 84 oil when it dosen't even have any resources of that kind.

For crying out loud, revolts everywhere!

Okay. We might just say that the US is screwed beyond all recognition. And no, it's not me in Florida.

Germany took Suez. Allies are doomed now. I give them one year, maximally two if France stalls them in Sahara.
