That is a beautiful Dutch Empire!
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.
Calvinhobbesilk: Beautiful. But how come you didnät use more than 400 light ships? no more needed?
Did you have any major wars against France, or did you just avoid them? Also, is that Teutonic Order north of Ottomans?
Both of our nations had rulers of the same dynasty so relations where pretty high for the most part until about the late 16 to 1700s then i declared some colonial wars and managed to take some provinces but it was costly ,the war in the Americas was a victory since i seized their colonial territories i didn't have to siege their provinces so that was quick and easy but the war in Europe was a problem. France had a multi front war, it was me on the west ad Austria on the east i declared war towards the end of Frances war with Austria(which was a big mistake) so my army was winning at first then came a huge stack of forces and my armies were eventually wiped which led to mercenaries being recruited but that didnt help. I got the provinces i wanted in the Americas but ended up releasing Portugal which i did annex them again later and released another vassal(dont remember who though its been a while). And i do believe it is the Teutonic Order.
How did you take provinces and release Portugal at the same time?
Okay so the provinces i wanted were being colonized by France so you have the option to seize colonies at the cost of mil power as you know. By seizing the colonies i think it doesn't add to warscore any longer. Although i got the areas i wanted the war still raged on. It was a victory in the sense i completed my personal goals but ultimately a defeat since my armies were crushed in Europe. Since the war with France still raged on they eventually started beating me where i had a negative warscore so i made tons of peace offers and so i released Portugal and another vassal to save me from getting other territories taken. Mind you this was an ironman game so i was desperate not to lose eastern Spain territories
