Did you create those EU4 ''superstates'' in ironman mode? If so, I really admire your ability to achieve ''clean map''.

Also how did you add your Russian subjects to the holy roman empire, how did they become princes?
I conquered or diploannexted the land, added it to the empire and later released nations or returned cores. I believe that is the only way, so even though it's painfully costly, I had to go with it.

As for other stuff, yeah. Ironman mode. I start playing with an approximate picture of what I intend to achieve in the end and keep an eye on things just in case I have to prevent things from going wrong. I invest a ton of effort into achieving this only for sake of pretty screenshots. I guess that's just my hobby. To be honest it's more tedious than hard.

"The Etruscans Strike Back", Firenze->Tuscany->Italy->Rome. Nothing too great, but it did get me 8 achievements:
Grand Duchy, Italian Ambition, A Protected Market, This Revolution was Crushed, All Your Trade Are Belong to Us, A Decent Reserve, Just A Little Patience, Mare Nostrum

2m4FlLF.jpg


There was a lot of suboptimal play involved. I was hoping to get an electorate to stay inside the HRE, was already too big (but too small to expand outside Italy at the time) when the Catholic Empire happened, managed to PU an electorate OPM, basically lost too much time. It wasn't like I got anywhere near forming the HRE, teaches me to never settle for greyskin. I also wasted 10 years trying to Crush This Revolution happening in the half of France I had yet to annex at 1800 so that I never had to worry about that achievement again, and only ever got to take Crimea after that.

Managed to turn into a kingdom by forming Tuscany with a Medici on the throne. I then lost them around the 1700s in a series of complicated events where the Maghrebi&Iberian lands of Portugal were one province larger than 100% OE, so I took all of that and almost all of European Spain which roughly gave me 280% OE. See, I was about to have a civil war and assumed that would stop separatists from spawning, letting me go through the 2 year coring phase with relative ease. My heir got the throne that month. So, Greece managed to spawn because I missed Rhodes' occupation until 4 months before they won and my entire navy was in Londinium (kind of weird how they get wholesale independence when they only held to an island), I exported swathes of South Slavic rebels into Ottomania, and I ended up capitulating to a revolution. I tried to go for the Bureaucratic Despotism route; the 10 times reelected genius died 2 months before that happened and left me with a 1-4-1. His heir was a 3-2-0. Around the 1790s however, through a marriage to Poland whom I had infected back when we were friends, a De Medici finally reassumed the throne and recreated Rome. They also rule Russia. I do wonder what that apostrophe in De ' Medici is from though. Is that a bug or Medieval Italian?

All the histories aside, I imagine if this was attempted by a player more skilled than I (not a hard thing to be), they could have easily achieved the borders I dreamt of.

I also had fun using a dictionary and the Latin Vicipaedia trying to figure out names for all my armies.

Eighteen heirs of Genghis, eighty-seven princes, seven electors.

One horde to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

It's not a bug: the full wording would be "dei Medici", meaning "of the Medici family", but the final "i" tends to be cut out.

EA948E1C90A0D1FCD2494BC1FF908F58F8839F1C


Started as Ragusa, made some incredibly opportunistic DoWs on Ottomans and Hungary in particular - never went to war with Austria, and in fact they're one of my allies along with Lithuania (who actually rivaled Poland) and Spain. Lost a couple of wars (including ceding Dubrovnik province to Venice) along the way, but I'm pleased with the way and time I managed to do it in. Could be a good run from this point as well - decent base to build on, especially with super buffed Dubrovnik + Constantinople.

Poland in Sweden. Reverse deluge, eh?
Poland went full retard this game - refused the free PU with Lithuania, converted to protestantism, expanded into Denmark and Scandinavia... and as final act of idiocy, it (being one of my 100 trust allies along with Spain, GB, Portugal and Lithuania) picked a war with Lithuania and GB, the result of which was Poland becoming New Sweden (BTW Old Sweden lives yet in Gotland).

I wasn't going to post this one yet, until I saw that Norway was the first colonizer into North America, and I was just like, "That can't be very common."

I'm doing fairly well for myself, if I do say so myself. Colonizing takes a long time, though.

Sweden is exiled to Gotland?Or it`s just another part of France?
P.S.:The way you did with Ukraine is UNGODLY.The majority belongs to Lithuania...when Lwow and Crimea are parts of Austria.

Oh wauw what strategy? Please tell me..

Start over until Austria doesn't rival you and see if you can get a royal marriage. You need to inherit Austria as a union partner. You can't ally them because you're a historical rival, but you can get a rm/union just fine. Ally the electors and pick up the emperor title as fast as possible. In the meantime, take your cores back and grab some land no matter where. I got lucky because Hungary "attacked me" after I inherited Austria. Took some lands from them and got access to the balkans from there. Ally Scotland and put all your troops in their lands after you got access once you are ready to attack England a second time. Take their northern lands and the province in Ireland. Take Ireland from there and break the alliance with Scotland once you have lands on the British Isles. I also inherited both parts of Burgundy. Apart from that, you just need speed and some luck.

with the reduced coring costs for territories you no longer have to move into Scandinavia or avoid high development provinces. All you have to worry about it coalitions. Just go over the diplomatic relations limit. At one time I had 9 vassals/union partners/allies just to prevent coalitions from firing.

Start over until Austria doesn't rival you and see if you can get a royal marriage. You need to inherit Austria as a union partner. You can't ally them because you're a historical rival, but you can get a rm/union just fine. Ally the electors and pick up the emperor title as fast as possible. In the meantime, take your cores back and grab some land no matter where. I got lucky because Hungary "attacked me" after I inherited Austria. Took some lands from them and got access to the balkans from there. Ally Scotland and put all your troops in their lands after you got access once you are ready to attack England a second time. Take their northern lands and the province in Ireland. Take Ireland from there and break the alliance with Scotland once you have lands on the British Isles. I also inherited both parts of Burgundy.

Ah really going for Austrian union...I thought better of the paradox community
