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.
If you scout out where the English fleet is (usually somewhere along the channel) and them come in opposite from that (say, Scotland) it's pretty easy to get away with it in the early game. But yeah, you basically just load up your forcelimit in cogs. You can also buy a bit more time by putting a galley in the seazone beside their fleet so that they have to fight it (which usually takes a while in the early game) before going after your cogs.Yes, I probably should have phrased that better and asked if there was some trick to it other than just loading up your forcelimit worth of cogs and hoping you catch someone with their pants down.
Absolutely. It isn't unreasonable for England to be outbuilt by someone who is trying seriously to do so in the early game. In fact, as Venice (an admittedly more naval-oriented country, but still a tiny one when compared to England) I usually have outbuilt England by the end of session 1.I play only single player, I am too slow for MP. But I think an overconfident England might build too few ships, just as Pewt as France at the beginning built too few troops. Humans are fallible.
Disappeared halfway through the session if I recall correctly. Think he had to go or something.hmm ... Mughal have nearly unified India , Ming is expanding , the Ottomans are doing ... i dont' know what exactely, Hansa is more or less doomed.
Portugal is dropped or just absent?
Its not tension its just that Mughal needs to bend over and take it or hes ganna get wreckedDisappeared halfway through the session if I recall correctly. Think he had to go or something.
Something I forgot to mention is that there's a lot of tension between the Mughals and Russia right now over Kazakh (a war which the Mughals are almost certain to lose should it come to that). Not sure what the Ottomans are up to.
Japan is only good if you want to move your capital there and be a naval nation, but since Sweden isn't taking indonesia I don't get it either.400 on 150 limit? crazy!
you released them as vassals? you expect integration missions on them or just to keep infamy down?
Italy suddenly became really powerful ...
Ming apparently lost to Netherlands.
Hansa is getting Mali
Sweden is colonizing Japan? weird , i thought they were not worth it now.
Oh , you missed them loging Denmark to Prussia, too.
The naval scene this game is pretty weak, so I assume Italy is banking on that to keep his colonies, and Austria and I are currently a little too busy with each other to worry about him which is how he got away with this at all. No doubt we'll see whether he tries to play us off against each other more or tries to conquer Languedoc/Roussillon/Provence for a land border.I don't know about mechanics of multiplayer, but Italy seems to be outstreching. Land borders with both with you and Austria and again colony developments in N. America (Statitistics say she has the most colonies on going).
The first war was a surprise attack since up until the day I dowed Spain we had been quite friendly. I went over my forcelimits and invaded with 120k while he only had around 40k in iberia and I had naval supremacy. There was also a land tech difference of 14 to 11. It seems he did not expect me to dow again straight away after the truce was over so he was again caught without many armies in Spain and again the land tech difference was high. After losing 10 provs and being behind in tech he decided there was no way to win and so he sold the rest of his country for 4k.Quite the blitzkrieg by Italy. Just wondering how could Castille overextend to a point where he can't defend Iberia.
I don't want to be involved in anything that is going on between Prussia, Austria and France so hopefully I will be able to remain at peace in europe. At the moment im leaning slightly towards Austria since France does not seem happy that I took Spain while Austria does not seem to mind. If I am attacked by either France or Austria then I will immediately side with the other guy and become a junior alliance partner for a while. Britain is the only threat to my american colonies so I will try to nap him again and if he refuses I suppose we will begin a naval cold war and I will await his attack.I don't know about mechanics of multiplayer, but Italy seems to be outstreching.
