Impo- Difficult Victory
A Japan AAR

WINNER OF WRITAAR OF THE WEEK 02/09/09

Settings - Very Emu (25% IC, resource and manpower for the AI)
Aggressive
AI can use all cheats

This will mainly be a semi-comical gameplay AAR, and will hopefully show off some of the awesome features of Mod 34, the only mod I've ever truly enjoyed.

SO PREPARE

FOR



GLORY

1. Setup, or
GLORIOUS JAPAN ON THE MARCH



The greatest nation on Earth slumbers in a deep slumber. This slumbering giant will soon stir and CONQUER THE WORLD*




*Sections of China



Japan's wise cabinet of Victory do not slumber, however! They are alert, like Tiger! And hawkish, like Hawk!



When offered difficulty settings, Emperor Hirohito laughs with scornful scorn, scorning the concept of an 'easy ride'. Do your worst, Gods!



... The Gods have won this round.

For revenge, Invincible Japan begins preparation for a war on Heaven itself:



Ahahahahaha.

And now, the state of our Grand Military at the start of the game, October 1st 1934...



NO ARMY IS GRANDER!

After some reorganisation, our Grand Army is now in several mighty Corps and Armies of incomprehensible power and majesty.



Our Grand Air Fleets blot out the very sun!



Our Grand Navy threatens to sink China itself!



KNEEL BEFORE YOUR NEW GODS! proclaims the Immortal Emperor.

Then, we go to the London Naval Conference to sort out our differences with the lesser races like men, with words. Not violence.



Oh yes, 'The West'. There is agreement.

IN HELL!

That's quite a handicap there. Should be interesting to see how you do, especially in later years.

2. JAPAN'S GLORY GROWS BY THE HOUR​



Our glorious tech teams complete the research of submachine guns, allowing us to research the most complicated infantry yet devised by man.



Witness our power! Our invincible legions are now IRREGULAR INFANTRY. No more Great War infantry here, pah!

WE ARE NOW IRREGULAR!

IRREGULARLY GLORIOUS THAT IS.


Astounded by our glory, Perfidious Albion and the United States of so-called-America decide to sign a treaty whereby they can construct 5 million tons of shipping and Japan, JAPAN MARK YOU, can only construct 3 million!



Emperor Hirohito is enraged! Rage such as you cannot imagine!

We shall construct THREE HUNDRED million tons of shipping, and there's not a thing the Anglo-Saxons can do about it!

BANZAI!

Fired up by this patriotic fervour, our teams complete 'Wartime Industrial Base'. Japan now ranks among the top nations of all History!



BEFORE LONG THE GODS THEMSELVES SHALL BOW BEFORE MIGHTY NIHON!

Until next time.

3. TREATY TREATS



Research begins on the brand new Shokaku-class Carriers - Aircraft Carriers of such unimaginable horror that no picture could be displayed for them.



To celebrate, the Japanese government puts on a Sho-wa for the denizens of our Nation, our glorious, fabulous... no, not fabulous. That's too fruity for MIGHTY NIHON.



AND WE GROW MIGHTIER BY THE DAY! We leave the Naval Treaty - in fact, according to the event we already HAD left it, meaning we are even more glorious for having not bothered to inform anyone until now.

Happy New Year, THE WEST!



Look at all those Blueprints! Japanese Naval science advances at a pace that cannot be expressed as a percentage!

Witness our power, China. Do you not tremble?



WHAT!

CURSE YOU, CHIANG!

I need inspiration for when i play as japan!

Translation= if you abandon this im gonna rip your head off and shit down your neck

:D
Buy a dude a drink first!

Personally I didn't like the 34 Mod. I couldn't force myself to get used to the new techtree.
It's really worth it! Takes a few games to get used to it, though.

That's quite a handicap there. Should be interesting to see how you do, especially in later years.
I'm hoping it will actually be difficult :D


Everyone else: Thanks for your comments! Tell your friends :p
