The glorious chinese empire, in the beginning it was really hard with the inward perfection penalties and the oirat order expanding really fast and annexing both Manchu and Tibet until I got to break their armies and open a space for the other mongol factions/islan rebels, I'm quite surprised they could hold on to see the 19th century.

Ming passed through hard times during the 16th century when the empress died without a child and the empire entered in a downward spiral of lack of legitimacy/loss of the mandate of heaven, I tried to aliviate the troubles by a royal marriage policy, I basically married all of the eastern world, suffice to say, it didn't work out. It wasn't until 60 years later when the third dinasty had fallen out of the power and the japanese dinasty was having a pretty good reign with a solid monarch that resisted inumerous assassination attempts that I got and heir, the child was the symbol of the decay of the ming empire with awfull deformations, his stats were good tho and he would have been as decent an emperor as his father but he died in a horse accident when he was ten, I thought I had some hard times ahead but that great emperor had a miraculous daughter with a strong claim and she saved the empire from the certain doom.

After I finally got out of the downward spiral it was the 17th century, in a few years I conquered all that was left from the manchus (who by that time had been annexed by the oirat horder and broke free) and formed the chinese nation, reforming the decadent celestial empire into a administrative monarchy, China was once again free from the Ming xenophoby and ready to rise again, with the factions still working for me their compesations became powerfull bonuses, I maintained the eunuchs in power, with their -75% technology cost and by the 18th century I was as advanced as the western nations, by the half of the century I was only behind sweden. France tried from time to time to enter in China, but only managed to lose their colonies in Indonesia. I had a personal union with Champa, but thanks to their size and heretic religion, I never got to integrate them as I integrated Tibet.

My Swedish Empire with a 1530-something start, sporting the best army in the world winning almost every battle for the past 200 years no matter the odds. In the last 100 years none of my neighbours were strong enough to be a threat, which if I had been more aggressive and not been forced to fight a revolution would have allowed me to expand almost without bounds.

Europe, Sweden dominating the north and the Baltic is essentially a Mare Nostrum. I went to great lengths to deny Russia sea access which demolished their economy in the last 100 years. I fought a coalition of Russia, Bohemia, Saxony, Austria and Great Britain plus others several times with only occasionally Netherlands and Ukraine on my side (sometimes Ukraine was against me, too). I won every time, 160% discipline and 6 point-generals have a tendency to achieve that. The Commonwealth was dissolved between me, Bohemia and Ukraine - I roleplayed this as I could have taken all of Poland myself but I decided not to and shared it with my neighbours. The Commonwealth had been on my back constantly since it formed and I had to slowly chip away at it over the centuries to obtain that nice coastline.

Austria was much bigger previously, owning the netherlands and what not, but lost it all in several coalition wars before growing stronger again by eating Switzerland and parts of Germany. The Ottomans are a paper tiger, in one coalition war they sent ~200 thousand men up to fight me in Prussia and I killed them all in four battles. They are behind Persia in tech which hasn't done them any favours in the past century. Spain suffers the same problem despite inheriting Portugal and her colonies.


Asia is very interesting, the Mongols are divided in only two factions, the Kazakhs and Oirats, Kazakh even formed the Mongol Empire at one point before imploding giving way to the Kazakhs again. I don't know how the Mughals were so successful, they aren't really strong in the 1530s when I started (do they even exist?) but they certainly did well here. Hindu is pretty much gonners by now. Persia is looking really cool, holding their own versus the seemingly superior Ottomans thanks to better tech.


North America, colonisation worked really well, Spain and France are just dominating though. I'm surprised that the natives still hold out, I think the Europeans just left them alone. Spain owns all of South America.


Ming formed Manchu I guess, or did Zhou/Shan rise up and then form it? I have to check that out. Japan is really impressive having owned Russia in a few wars due to Russia's palpable tech (15 mil tech in 1800). Surprisingly much like what happened 100 years later.


And the ending picture. 5th largest army but still unthreatened hegemony over northern and central Europe. France is quite powerful but I have beaten them consistently as well. To be honest it got a bit boring after a while as I was simply not threatened by anyone.

Wow, these are really nice borders :O
How did the French Rev. go? They look so neat

I finally finished my Portugal game. I was not able to push my trade income above 2500, and GBR, even after losing 3/4 of its navy in a war against me, came back and had half of its light ships (200) stealing from Sevilla, and even with an embargo, they still took 25-35% of the trade there...

By the end, the Ottomans and Oman also controlled 50% of the trade power in Aden, even with my 100 ships patrolling there. Next time I play a trade game, I will make sure to actually conquer provinces in the Aden node. When GBR was not patrolling Sevilla, I was making slightly over 2k trade income. I only have 300 TI at the end of the game because there was a Russian doomfleet that forced my Aden fleet into hiding, so that basically killed all my trade. Even so, I ended the game with ONE MILLION ducats!

The balkanization of France was my doing; I was getting a triggered modifier that cost me 5 prestige per year unless I was at war with or had a truce with France, so I attacked them with Spain for an Indian colony, and because of ticking war score, I got them to release almost their entire coast and then some.

All in all, this was a pretty fun game from beginning to end. I really learned a lot about trade and hopefully I'll be able to make even more money the next time, even with the upcoming nerfs. But now, I think I'll take a break from trade and colonization...

A game in which I tried a bunch of new things and avoided much conquest. I wanted a compeltely mono-culture empire with everything built everywhere. I sunk an ungodly amount of monarch points into buildings but the net result is that it just doesn't matter if you in a position to trade because trade undeniably trumps all.

I tried some different national ideas, in particular avoiding diplomacy and defensive. Yep, decided I'll never be avoiding them again.

On the plus side, having everything reformed and Scottish means I am immune to Jackals! Vultures!

All the way to 1820 and cotton is still a worthless trade good.

Hopefully buildings not being completely demolished on conquest will get demand up. Probably get back like 20% of the value lost in patching trade forward increase, and sudden conquests won't suddenly crush provincial trade power so Aden might keep some more value, etc.

A continuation of my long saga from Crusader Kings 2: the great and truly Roman Empire (restored by Byzantine, Komenos family), the new Holy Roman Empire, Great Britain, Spanish Empire, Persian Empire (Timurid family), Wendish Empire. Still waiting for the Great War between the two Roman empires :)

I spent much of the game ensuring nice looking borders in Europe, I could afford it with my army :) I can't speak for Asia though, that's just luck!
France was in shambles in the 1770s and got a revolution in the 80s, they were already big by then and sadky achieved very little...

First finished Ironman game with Brandenburg, unfortunately I learned how to abuse vassals for dismantling bigger nations (look at france) and super fast expansion (cores) too late in the game, so I got fed up with trying to destroying france in countless warts over 50 years. The best thing about that game was the actual first world war when forming the HRE and there were seriously over one million troops involved.

In my 2nd finished game I was at war with the Ottomans for almost 70 years at the beginning of the game ~ Tried to use them for my expanions as a vasall later on because I thought it was funny, but it got too tedious after a while. Unfortunately time ran out at the end :(

I play on English because I love the language and the localisation is far better, but I agree that Frankreich sounds far more awesome than any other name.

I play on English because I love the language and the localisation is far better, but I agree that Frankreich sounds far more awesome than any other name.

I play on English because it is the base language (thus often the most developed) and it's the language I know best (from those that you can choose) :p

BTW is noone playing Spain/Castille/Aragon anymore? Haven't seen any of them in posts here

Poland did just inherit Lithuania, Austria ate Burgundy and leads personal union with Castille...

Catholic Holy Roman Emperor, Spain and Poland versus Orthodox True Roman Emperor and Russia. This is going to be bloody epic.

Especially bloody.

My first game of EU IV, playing as the Livonian Order. And yes, those who knew german can see, that the german translation of the game is - again - goddam awful.

But to the game. Starting in my corner of europe I soon noticed that I was terribly fucked. Everyone around me was bigger, meaner and wanted my land. There where the Danes, together with Sweeden, Norway and Castille of all people. There was Novgorod, there was Lituana (who hat a mission to destroy me and only thousands of rebells in their land saved me there) and there was Poland (after they took over the Teutonic Order). So I took Exploration as my first Idea, sailed as far south as possible (and with the help of Marroko and the Congo that was very far) and colonized. By around 1490 I sold every province I had left in europe (not many, after two wars against the Danish Alliance and one war against Novgorod). And made Kapstadt my new capital. From there on it was a very quiet Game. Mostly colonizing, with a few small scale wars but nothing of note, good to learn some of the game mechanics. Ah, and the reformation failed total. Since I changed early to Protestantism, of course no one else did. There where at the highs of the Reformation 5 reformed Nations, 2 of them OPMs, another one a Two Province Minor. After 1600, I was the only one left and it stayed that way.

That was the end of everything: My African and Indian Ocean/Pazific holdings. Not shown: The Falklands, Rapanui and Tahiti. Ah and for those who wonder about that Japan: That are from left to right my vassals Shimazu, Hosokawa, Shiba and Uesugi. The fifth strip of Land is Portugal, who invaded Japans North.
