• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Bulgaria turncoats to the Communists. That just leaves Italy in the Axis. However, having no transports, I have to cross the high mountainous terrain of Montenegro.

screensave1mk4.jpg


A sign of things to come?

screensave2sm4.jpg


Can't see you. Can't hear you. Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala.

screensave3ei8.jpg


So you are Italians eh? Well you'll go BOOM-BOOM-BOOM like the rest of them.

screensave4pl5.jpg


Oh hello. Another damn race against the Commies. *sigh* fine.

screensave5oh5.jpg


Not looking good.

screensave6ur5.jpg


Blast. OK Athens has gone. Only Skopje to go and then the war is over!!!!

screensave7ry0.jpg


VICTORY!!!​

The war is over!!!

YAAAAAAYYYY


"Um, excuse me?"

Peace in our time!! Yes there you go Italy a corrupt government of your own!

"Um, hello? A wee minute please?"

And look! A corrupt government of your own as well Republican Spain! Now you can go to war with the Nationalist Spanish who for some bizarre reason was granted autonomy in the German surrender and now rule the Canaries and the Canar...

"Um hello?"

....WHAT?

"The Japanese?"

They're already independent, I can't release them.

"Yes, but you are still..you know...at war with them"

Pfft! A mere technicality. Irrelevent.

"..."

"righty-o"

Congrats on the big win. Considering it took you all of April to move from Paris to Antwerp while the Soviets went from Berlin to Bastogne, I'm not terribly surprised that they beat you to Athens as well.

Well, we all know the real reason Aye is bailing on the game, and it's definitely not the Japanese. He's just afraid that Soviet ownership of Oslo, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Athens will trigger the Cold War Gets Hot event. :D

Seems like a good place to end it. It was supposed to be a miniAAR after all. :D Wasn't expecting the success, and as the standings place the Axis at 0 and the Allies ahead of the Comintern, thats a win as far as I am concerned. :p

Need to improve my naval skills certainly.

No, no, no, no, no. Oslo and Copenhagen are in Allied (edit: wait, neutral I think) hands. Not worried over Cold War Gets Hot events at all.

...

OK, I wasn't until you mentioned it.

I have absolutely no idea what to do about the Japanese, absolutely none.

Well done. You should have lost. But you lost to the soviets because they made Europe ugly. One state would have been better.

Yes, the party is over. Glad you enjoyed it though. Well I was able to defend and attack specific areas:

I defended Egypt. Couldn't attack as I didn't have the troops.
I lost Britain. So I didn't have to defend that.
I lost the Holyland. So I didn't have to defend that.
I defended India. Had less bullets than the Japanese had mad bayonet-weilding loonies.
I lost India. So I didn't have to defend that.
America liberated Blighty.
Defended the beaches a little.
So What did I have?
Africa.
Pile all the troops I had into Egypt, gladly accept Exp. forces from 'Free' France and Belgian Congo.
Storm through Libya (AN OFFENSIVE BY GADS!).
Hop over to Spain (the Germans weren't really defending that)
Storm through Spain (AN OFFENSIVE BY GADS!).
Get to French border.
Decide to keep going.
Get to Italian border (the Italians weren't really defending that)
Decided to keep going.
I annexed Italy.
USSR annexes Germany.

The end. :)

Its handy not having to defend places, by strategically losing them and allowing your troops to be deployed elsewhere. :nods: I think Blue Emu should test a game using my strategy. :nods again:
