Fumbling My Way through History
- Oct 18, 2009
thanks, I wasn't sure and since this is Ironman, I wanted to make certain.
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.
As far as Burgundy goes, a couple of things can go horribly wrong. I'll go into more detail in the actual update, but Brittany and Burgundy combined have more men on the ground than France and her combined vassals. I have 1 tech level advantage and about double the spare MP. However, if thngs go wrong, and the coalition gets triggered, that would bring in England. I haven't checked their army yet, but who knows? exciting times ahead for sure, especially with Ironman. In a standard game, you can afford to have a couple of dry runs first. here what you see is what you get.Yay for crushing Provence! And now for Burgundy!
As for the pictures, I don't really notice when I'm reading AARs, unless there's considerable effort put into the formatting. But when posting my own, I prefer centered.
I prefer centered myself too. I think it just looks more precise, but I wanted to try something different.I prefer them centred, but it's a matter of personal taste
Try another browser next time, just in case it is a factor.
Welcome, Sprites! I plan to play sometime in the next couple of days. Maybe tonight. Update should come a day or two later.I don't really care if they are centered or not.
nice play! i'll see the future.
Thank you. I think that the war would have gone totally different had it not been for the tech difference. Hard to believe what a difference 1 level makes.An solid performance by France. I presume the mercenaries have been released since the conflict is over, how does your balance look now? 450 is no small amount of loans, and if they start rolling over inflation will creep up.
I figured as much after the facts. I should have taken Flanders instead of Artois. Well, you learn by doing things the wrong way. It was still a lot fun beating up on the Burgundian army :laugh:Great win.
Unfortunately, Flanders has to be released from a Flemish province, which means that for it to work, you should have gotten either Antwerpen, Ghent or Vlanderen.
You could still give them Picardy in later peace deals, and they will have both Picardy and the Flemish province if you release them as vassals after a second war.
I was thinking along the same lines. Only question: How to go about it? One final little problem: I free Austria, and they end up rivaling me. As I write this, I am thinking to let someone win, then DoW the winner and break Austria up into its composite parts. Should take a couple of wars. And if I am careful not to take anything in the treaty, that should keep AE to a minimum.I think it's in your best interests to make sure neither of them succeed, a Hungary with Austria will eventually gain the HRE and will rival you, a Poland-Lithuania with Austria will do the same.
I say break them both.
