I have just sat on my chair on my usual free time after the work, after my kid and wife went asleep to have a nice relaxing 1-2 hour session of EUIV. Before I started the game I checked the forums ... and man those 1.7 patchnotes are brutal. I just wanted to say goodbye to all those magnificent empires build by all the community (the vocal part that spends its time not only on playing the game but also creating, sharing, improving the community and the game .... well I thought so at least for the latter up until some worldchanging posts by Johan). The landscape in this Thread will be dramatically diffrent after tomorrow till Pdox realizes their error. The 1.7 is a mistake. They won`t admit to it, Johan states that they won`t change the decision ... but at least I can change mine. I was 10000000% sure that I will buy Res Publica and propably any other flavour DLC that comes with it tomorrow ... but now I know this is the time to end this relationship. EUIV you were sometimes kind to me, thrilling, exciting, sometimes boring or annoying as hell, recently more and more wearisome but now .... I bet that a mod will be developed after 1.7 gets realeased that automates the empire managment till truce times go away or a very significant rise in total conversion mods usage such as MEIOU and Taxes and VeF.

Ok, now to stay on the Threads theme I present you my humble 1.6.1 started game as Poland that I`ve put on hold after getting The Royal Struggle event in 1600. I came back to this game after finally 1.6.2 was pushed through. My best game ever, still with a space to improve but the best for sure. So here is a link to another thread in which I described how I achieved my empire to 1600 status. My goal was to make this game my Commonwealth as big as it can possibly be. But now I`ve lost any will to follow this one up. Enjoy!

It's 1400, and a week has passed since Byzantium no longer exists. The Moroccan-Abbasid Sunni advance into Europe is accelerating. Will Bulgaria reconquer Bulgaria? Will England ever form?? Will the humongous AI Germany awaken from the depths??? Only time will tell, with 715 years to go anything could happen. Discuss!

My 1.7 Poland -> Commonwealth game.
It's honestly not as bad as people make it out to be, it's around 1613 and I've expanded quite a bit.
I've had a huge rebel problem but that eventually went away, too.

I'm still eastern, but I haven't had too many problems with that.
I have the biggest army in the world, and I'm quite proud of the fact that I out-manpower both France and Russia right now.
I've had a steady alliance with the now weakened Austria.
I tried to rush and stop Russia from forming, but as you can see it was too late, not really a problem anyway.

Where should I focus expanding on?

I started an Uzbek game with the intention of forming Bukhara, and it turned out better than expected. I had a rough start (all of my neighbors hated me), but the tide turned in my favor when I got lucky enough to "liberate" Bukhara (the province) from Timurid tyranny a mere five years before I could make the "Form Bukhara" decision (1500). Then the tide turned against me once more, because I had to release Sibir in order to form Bukhara, and I spent a couple decades reconquering the land (vassalized Sibir through war, then diploannexed). Once that was dealt with, I was in great shape. Forming Bukhara upgraded me to the Muslim tech group and the Iqta government, which is a huge blessing (no more annoying horde politics). Most of this was done pre-1.7. I'm curious about how the changes will affect my future Holy Wars with Ming.

I took Exploration and Expansion ideas, followed by Trade and Religious (I want to conquer and convert East Asia). Russia is weaker than usual thanks to its strong European neighbors and my colonization efforts. I've colonized much of the Pacific region and I'm currently focusing my efforts on the US West Coast. Elsewhere, Austria is unstoppable, Scandinavia is kicking butt, and the historical European colonizers are doing what they do best. The Ottomans, Hedjaz, Baluchistan, and Malwa are my allies and have blobbed a bit because of it (although the Ottomans would've done so anyway).

Now, I'm wondering if Westernization is worth the effort (I have a colonial border with Portugal, finally). My legitimacy is super low after some less-than-great events, and I don't have the monarch points for it yet. The -3 stab hit would likely plunge me into rebel hell unless I save up enough admin points and trick out my army some more. Maybe I'll stick with Muslim tech and rely on manpower to defend myself from those nasty Western types. I can still easily crush Chinese and Indian groups. My Alaskan colony is named "Yadgar", for the glorious (in-game) ruler who formed Bukhara and did lots of other awesome manly things (according to my mental fanfiction).

Now, to crush Ming, dominate the Pacific, and maybe see this game through to its end for once. That would be a first.

After getting a bit bored of a Venice game, I decided to try my hand at Koch instead. Wasn't as hard as I thought. I'm essentially playing Hindu Bengal with +3 to fashion.

Decided to set CK2 into observe mode and then convert whatever happened at the end to EU4 and play from that - the only cheats I did involved keeping the von hohenzollern's in control of brandenburg (where I put them in the first place at the start) since they were the ones I wanted to play as at the end, but they decided to become kings of Lotharingia as well. It has got me an unusual map to play on at least - some of the key points:

- That is Ireland you can see in Spain and southern France.
- Bavarian lands aren't part of the hre and they are also one of the few remaining bastions or orthodox christianity
- The leader in Byzantium is Kaiser Wolfram II, which is why all their lands are also catholic
- I also don't really know how the middle east became so Catholic - Islam barely still exists in north africa
- France is split into two, so I am hoping the game wont just devolve into trying to contain France by an means necessary like all my other games.

First game that I finished all the way. Started as Hesse, wanted to form Westphalia, but "Form Germany" decision was available earlier so I formed Germany. My colony in Africa was inherited from my vassal Austria when i annexed them. USA got their independence from Austria while they were still my vassal so I couldn't do anything about that...

The strangest thing I saw in this game was Scotland migrating to Canada (They had only one province in British isles but got the others back when France annihilated England).

Yeah, maybe not yet, but I feel like the game will get extremely easy with no Spain, no major Austrian expansion, and most of Italy under my control...especially early on.

Hi guys,

I'm new in forum, this is my first post and first game sharing, even I play EU4 for 7-8 months. This is maybe my 200th-250th game. But I saw this thread and I want to share my games hereafter.
This is my Russia-n Empire with Ironman Mode, ended 2-3 hours ago.

Political Map Eurasia is under control completely. Ottomans don't have Serbia and its some East provinces like Trebizond etc. Persia isn't here (a story can be written about it) but shorten, I won a great war against Timurids and its Khanate allies and I released Persia as my vassal in Fars at 1520-1530. I gave them gained provinces from every won against Timurids. I annexed them at 1770-1780. I will share some screenshots about proud Persians from gameplay. At East Asia, I won a great war against Ming, I shrink them as can as possible and I don't have any riot from Han nation, only Manchu riots uprised everytime, after that war I released Korea (after this war Ming couldn't get rid of trouble, they turned into Shun and Zhou as screenshots). Japan, Japan was my ally against Spain colonisation at 1700-1800.

Religions Map There isn't Shia. Orthodox religion biggest religion in Eurasia and World. I will share some screenshots about this (like Orthodox Persians, Orthodox Manchu, lol)

Diplomatic Map
Here we go, Denmark my "great" ally since start 1450-1821. No time, the alliance was intact. We have fought in every war together. While earning something or not (they are gained too much thing (against HRE etc.), lol. France is my "benefit" ally 1550-1821. Every war together we gained too much thing (they gained some Iberian provinces because of me and I gained East Europe provinces "against Lithuania and its big allies (Austuria, England, Bohemia etc.)". Algiers, Algiers my ally against Ottomans war declaring on me. That is worked good enough. Plus, we fought against Portugal and Spain, I and France gave them some Africa provinces after war. They are lucky. Ethiopia, royal marriage with them (aw an Ethiopian in Russian dynasty) against Ottomans.

Sphere Map
Sphere map, that 2-3 province at East Europe is GREAT POLAND, lol. They are my good vassal (+300 opinion). There wasn't enough time for annex them. I could annex them at 1 January 1821 but game is ended at the same time, ........................

Opinion Map
Ottomans are my one rival end enemy in the world (because they are wanting their provinces from real history, there is no other reason, lol). Other bad opinions from "Ming, Shun," Spain and Lithuania(1-2 province "there wasn't enough time for destroy them") and Punjab from Indian territory, reason is fear clearly. Great and so good relations with Europe.

Bad administrative technology because of the behave like Genghis Khan in this game and expensive core costs.

Some funny screenshots from game;

No idea. I had checked before and it said if their ruler died it would cause a succession war between Castile and France. I can't say I've really ever had it happen before, but whatever...
Also, the PU with Naples came via an event, which I've also never seen.

No idea. I had checked before and it said if their ruler died it would cause a succession war between Castile and France. I can't say I've really ever had it happen before, but whatever...
Also, the PU with Naples came via an event, which I've also never seen.

Naples gets an event if they break free around 1450-1470 or so where they have to take a stab + relation hit with France or go into a PU under them. It's the Baronial Revolts. I kinda like it from raw flavor, but from gameplay it's just picking a lesser of two evils.

Did you even marry Burgundy?
No, which made it even weirder. They absolutely hated me but loved Castile. I'm not sure if it's something where Castile had a spurious claim in game terms so they're saying that France is telling Castile "No, that would make you too powerful and besides, your king sucks" or something. Like the war of Spanish Succession or something. I'm still not entirely sure how personal unions even work...

Anyways I don't know what to do. If I annex all those places, I've basically won the game because Castile will be incredibly weak, Austria will have to remain in the east of the German lands, and Italy will be mine. If I give any of them up, I make things harder for myself (except Naples but I see no reason to give up Naples, since I got them from an event and all)
