Someone stronger then you isn't gonna like what you're doing, with that infamy. What will you do if a decent sized power (Top 16?) invades?
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.

They were fighting during that war?!? I thought they were just running in terror and trambling smaller enemies! Ahem, no doubt then the Sokoto's men are an eltie fighting force and we shall all fully enjoy the war with Great Britain.Retreat, fight, then retreat again!
I hope I didn't misspeak If your army is bigger than everyone else's, the world tends to leave you alone. If it's bigger than the neighbors, the neighbors tend to leave you along. But I recall getting DoWed by Austria of all people in the Indian ocean in one game (as Sindh, maybe) and getting chased around. Typically, though, they DoW to Cut Down To Size, which I think is the (only) CB they get. Painful but not game-ending.Going over the infamy limit is a risky choice in this game but I've found that provided your military is of a comparable size or indeed larger than that of your neighbours, they'll rarely risk going to war with you (something InnocentIII was kind enough to confirm for me, as one of many questions I asked him whilst trying to get to grips with V2). Plus it seems that only neighbours will indeed consider war with someone over the infamy limit. Therefore provided I stay well away from any of the top 16, I should be fine. Probably.
Beware of Ethiopia, as the Italians found out in OTL they're stronger than they look. Then again, I suppose its best to take them out early before they start building up their armies and a land border with Egypt could prove to be very useful.You're doing all this with only your 8 starting brigades? Interesting...
I say go for Ethiopia next, if their army isn't too much bigger than yours. Taking Ethiopia would almost double your population, plus there are some very profitable coffee plantations there.
But don't mess with Egypt yet; they're stronger than they look, especially compared to Sokoto.
