excellent ending! shall we see another 1914 battlescenario aar from you any time soon?
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.
No, they are not. As this is a battle scenario there are only three, independent nations in the game. The Orange Free State, Transvaal and the British Empire. Also although I know 1914 also contains a scenario starting in 1897 I don’t think the Boer states are going to be represented as anything else than free states there either. But historically the Boers did come from the Netherlands, but that is long before the game happens, and therefore at the time of the game they were free states, for as long as it lasted until the British defeated and conquered them.Edzako said:Orange free states is colony of Netherland ?
Glad you like the Norwegian AAR as well As for Lærdal, well I guess it would be to the south in the HOI province called Ålesund on the border with the Bergen province.Edzako said:Thanks, I read this because I very enyojed your Norwegian AAR, as for Boers, I figured out that in Latvian they are called differently so I mistaken , by the way you knew in wich province HOI2 would be Laerdal city in Norway, cannot write it correctly because I have not that AE on clickboard.
Nice to know you enjoyed the storytheusje said:I really enjoyed reading your AAR, thanks to Edzako or I wouldn't have fond it.
Yes, I guess you can’t say it is the hardest scenario to win, but it is funny to play and I hope that as a preview of the mod it worked out.Kasakka said:Fun reading, even though it is true that 10-province map with the other side having only 2 just can't offer too much of a fight... HoI2 doesn't simulate querilla wars so this is just about as good as it could be made to be, but still. Meh, the mod's great for sure anyways, and this was a good preview of it. TY, Lord E.
Well at the moment I am working on my Norwegian one, but maybe when I have finished that. We shall see.GeneralHannibal said:So, thinking of doing an AAR from the Boer perspective yet?
Well I can understand that it might be more of a challenge playing from the Boer side and it could certainly be a very cool AAR to write, and as I said maybe once I will try it, but at the moment I have enough with the two AARs I have got running.Junkyard_Willy said:It would be more interesting to see the Boers win.
The people of Natal (Durban on the map) were mainly Boerevolk who the British conquered in the 1880's
And of course the territory of Mafaeking which is really a city just outside of the territory on the map of Transvaal (but in actuality the territory represented on the map all the good stuff from there including the population is in the city or near it so that should be given to the Boers or be an aim for them to get, and of course while they're at it they could drive the British out completely.
Far more interestin gto hear of that than of Britain conquering 2 measly territories (i know it ain't your fault for the map lines and such but - as thats the way it goes) - but a very interesting thing nonetheless.
Well I don’t think it will be continued as I managed to secure a victory in this battle scenario, but maybe in the future I might do one from the other side. But at the moment I have enough with two running AARs and studying as well, maybe in the summer holiday…rcduggan said:what a bump, but I hope this is continued!
