Not a problem -- it's a lot faster than my AAR! Just keep up the great writing and you and the story will both be fine.Farquharson said:The only thing I'm worried about is how slowly the story is progressing. Four updates and we're only in 1420, and practically nothing has yet happened in the game!
Farquharson said:Ladislav: Thanks for these comments - very revealing. You mention other nations "catching up tech-wise". I had noticed they seemed to have something of a tech advantage. None of my test games got as far as 1434, but I suspected that the Hussites would somehow come a cropper around that point. Also you mentioned being asked to return captured Bohemian provinces to Bohemia in the 1440s. I noticed this "stipulation" in the Crusades against the Hussites event and wondered how it was implemented.
are you sure?? that sounds odd. it is possible that hussites controlled other provinces, you have to capture all their land AND prevent them from controlling any other provinces. but once they cant build new armies, it should be easy enough. but watch out, those hussite armies can capture cities really fast.In one test game I managed to occupy both of the Hussites' provinces but only had 2% warscore - any idea how on earth that works??
I can also say that fighting as the Hussites requires a bit of skill, as it is surprisingly easy to be overwhelmed if you screw up. Most of my mistakes, however, generally result from bad event choices, not from the battlefield.Ladislav said:fighting hussites takes a lot of micromanagement, but a savvy human player can still manage
an astute observation. hussites are not invincible, you still have to use smarts to fight. knock out r.bohemia out and annex as much as possible in order to expand your power base. then move against austria. vassalize them, no worth taking that 1 province. they will throw off their yoke soon anyway. once you have your hands clear, move against hungary and annex carpathia and pressburg. there is an event giving you slovak culture and these 2 provinces as cores. afterwards just bunker down and fight back if attacked. overextending yourself in germany might be your undoing once hussites loose their advantages (land tech, leaders).Specialist290 said:I can also say that fighting as the Hussites requires a bit of skill, as it is surprisingly easy to be overwhelmed if you screw up.
