Damn those Canadians!
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Guess they really want a place in the sun!
Interesting developments. I'd still want an extra heavy cruiser for carib cover. Your condors are tied up in the south pacific. The Australians are sending all thier spare troops and fleet at you in Papua New Guinea. If they are to recover western australia and Perth - which I had assumed was relatively lacking in troops - troops will have to be drawn from other coastal cities allowing Portugal to ferry in troops as you did to take other coastal cities. I can certainly see why you went on to improve your refining capability.
The Italians are waiting for you to exhaust yourself against the defenders of Alexandria and then race you in.
Overall, you still have the initiative. Allied command of the seas has yet to result in a coherent strategy against Portugal.
it certainly seems as if your steady gadfly/attrition model is really paying off ... & can recognies the problems of trying to remember what you were doing in-game a caleneder year back when trying to write up an AAR
Great strategy, a land attack on Perth can only come from Darwin in the north or Adelaide to the east and you have "canarys" on each route. The central deserts would be impassable. A seaborne landing is the only unknown and this wont happen while the Australian navy is active in New Guinea.
Damn those Canadians!
Your comment about gambling is well taken! This whole AAR has been one long game of Texas Hold-'em to date. If the Allies were run by a human player none of this would have lasted but it clearly fails the Turing Test. KUTGW and remember the words of Ali: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!"
Landing in Australia, making AI more insane?
A lot of interesting developments here, I am really impressed by the large amount of territory you have been able to conquer with Portugal. It seems like Australia will soon follow and become part of your empire as well. It is kind of interesting that the AI isn’t able to send more naval forces around to stop you from sending your troops from one island and one country to the other, but for the sake of the story it is great. I wonder what people in Australia will think when they have to start speaking Portuguese!
Edit: My post number 5000, huzzah
Ha ! Those Aussies have no chance against you !
Wrong they have a chance it's just not very good. Great AAR by the way
After you have taken out those couple of divisions, the Australians will have to take troops from somewhere. I rather doubt they can build troops faster than you can kill them.Eventually, they'll have to denude their garrisons to retake Port Moresby or take back an increasing amount of Australia that you're Perth forces are going to be taking.
2 heavy cruisers ought to make things hotter for the canadians. Why are you smiling about the Italians (It's no way to think about your allies!)?
What news on the Kuwait front?
