"Let China sleep; when she wakes she will shake the world," said Napoleon

Well, lets make that happen.

Hi everyone and welcome to my AAR. This is my first real attempt at writing a true AAR. I made simplified AARs for Arsenal of Democracy and Rome posted on Youtube. I figured it was time to sit down and churn out the real deal. One thing that has always scared me about writing one of these is will anyone continue to read if my ass is getting kicked? I plan on sticking through this one all the way no matter what happens. I have two weeks off for Christmas break from my job so I will cook up updates hopefully daily. I am going to tell it mostly from my point of view and not in a role playing form. I hope that is ok with everyone. A fair amount of pictures will also be used, just a warning for people with slow internet.

v 1.2 normal



Before I get into the thick of things

I chose China because in my head I had a challenge I wanted to meet. I wanted to be the best country in Asia. Number one on my list to cut down was Russia. After they are dealt with, we will see who will come next.

So starting out..

A whole bunch of various surrounding countries offered alliances with me and I agreed.

Before I can mess around with any of the nearby powers(mainly Russia) I had to Westernize. So I started taking the tech tree advancements for it. Military score was already done because I have a bagillion people. So while my techs advanced I needed some prestige. One country who did not offer me an alliance was Korea. So in a preemptive strike before mainly Japan could take the peninsula as a spearhead into the continent, I massed my troops on the Korean border and declared war to annex the whole peninsula.

Well Japan stood up with their so called friend Korea and they both tried to stop my forces rushing into the peninsula. My navy was superior to Japan so they were only able to sneak a few forces up north and were minor annoyances. Soon the peninsula fell.


Korea accepted their fated being taken over by my superior numbers and speed, but Japan fought on for a bit and did not want to end the war just yet.


I was massing an invasion force to invade Hokkaidō. As soon as I put the boat in the water Japan offered a white peace. I thought about adding a war goal to take over Hokkaidō but I decided against it to keep my bad boy below the limit. The picture below shows the last of Japanese occupation on the mainland.


Below showing the outcome. Korea is annexed and Japan never made an impact on the mainland.

Shortly there after I got a Humiliate CB against Portugal. I decided to jump on it to gobble up more prestige. I first took Macao easily.


I needed more points to swing the war in my favor so I packed the boats and headed south to take Portuguese Bali.


One of my allies(Dai Nam) helped take Eastern African colonies. They did not stay in the war long. Great Britain declared war on them, I was not going to get into that spat.


I took Dili, they snook up on me in Formosa, but I took care of that quickly.



Since my former allies went away, to seal the deal I needed to head to Africa to win a few more points.


I thought it was worth the few presitge points getting 0 bad boy.


Just when I thought it was ok to breath, Japan declared War on me. This is going to be fun :)

During my troop massing, Russia colonized Sakhalin


My first wave of the invasion force, few more divisions down south massed near Hong Kong


The war went on way longer than I thought it would. They fought well, both sides lost hundreds of thousands.


The end result, their southern islands are mine and I am 3 prestige points away from Westernizing. The war lasted 11 years.

This is looking good, but there's something I don't understand. How did you manage to annex Korea while staying under the badboy limit? It's 4 states, so it should cost 50 infamy in total. Also, how are your relations with the UK? It tends to invade China fairly often early in the game, though I see in this case it went for Dai Nam.

I did conquest for my wargoal. It was only 20 bb total to annex the whole penisula. Right now I am at +30 with the UK, If I backed Dai Nam, I would have been in for a world of hurt.

After my costly war with Japan, I needed to build up my troops and needed to westernize fast.


Only had a few more points of prestige left so I decided to take a small BB hit by humiliating Brunei. Sucks to be them. They went down fast.


Why yes, I sure will...


Well I guess it is time to really give this thread a purpose and get the express rolling. Military Doctrine.


I figured this would look good on my resume. You know the old saying, rules are meant to be broken.


I'm a great power since Westernizing and not going to look back.


Well, an opportunity came up with border friction with Portugal so I figured it was time to put Macao back to its rightful owner.


Did the same drill much like my war with them years back.




Add that to the list, Portugal is my my red headed step child I love to slap around.


I figured this would be a good idea since they are right on my southern border.


Now, still building up more troops, putting soldiers all along the border with Russia. Also building forts along the border frontier and coastal provinces.


Trying to get Persia under my sphere. Ottomans have them now. They could be nice help on Russia's flank.


Hell, it was worth a try, I will keep at it and try again when I reach 200 relations.


Why yes, you guys are big and also next to Russia, lets do this...

I am with good standing with the UK. Still massing up troops to take on Russia. Playing it very cautious because I want my eventual war with Russia to go perfect. Made Persia and Japan placed in my Sphere and allies. Austria and the Ottoman Empire will come in handy for a defensive war against Russia.


As you can see, I have conservatives coming out of my ears.


Very nice of the capitalist to pile on the bucks to invest in industry. $$ was never a problem before. This will only help my cause to be a great power with industry score.


Well, I was trying to influence Kokand into my sphere then Russia jumped them quick annexing their lands. I thought about intervening but wanted to still have more troops on hand for a full proof victory. Anyway, another buffer went away and now a new possible Western Front was made.


I am thinking in the near future to free the Japanese folk on Sakhalin Island. Not only will it clear Russians on doorstep but it will be helping out an ally. This will be a test to see how my troops match against the Russian Bear.


Havent paid much attention but the UK took the rest of Dai Nam. Going to do my best to keep the UK out of my hair.

Oh, I hadn't realised you could do that as an unciv. I may find that useful in the future...

Good luck with Russia! The Bear is often not as potent as it appears, but still, it has had more time than you to reseacrh land techs.

Thanks :) I was worried if I would fit in because it is not the norm you see for an AAR.

impressive progress! subscribed.

My infamy is currently below 2.00. I don't think it has ever been above 24.00
UK has never attacked me directly but they have attacked a few allies who I did not help. Otherwise that would have hurt especially being unciv at the time.

Oh, I hadn't realised you could do that as an unciv. I may find that useful in the future...

Good luck with Russia! The Bear is often not as potent as it appears, but still, it has had more time than you to reseacrh land techs.
Thanks, They are my main goal to destroy. I am trying to make everything perfect so when I do go at them, I want to win!

Well, here I go. Time to see what my army is made of.


I jump and take the island fast. Played a defensive war at the start along the great northern front and small western front. I have to deal with France for negotiations.


The western front in the desert did not go well, they flooded the area and took a few of my provinces. The great northern front I took a few provinces but was never bale to gain much ground. Russia still had a tech advantage on me. My numbers alone were not good enough. After about the tenth time and the western front failing, I took a white peace from France.


If I do go back to war with Russia, I want to grab more land tech. Machine gun is now in my sight.

Now this came out of nowhere. Still did not trust them as much as I could throw them. I took it to keep some heat off me while I built up my army again. They canceled it after a few years.


Well, I have to admit my confidence was kinda smashed with my short war with Russia. I will deal with them later. I have Austria and the Ottomans to help me out if Russia decides to attack me. So since Japan was still uncivilized and right on my doorstep. Little do they know I am planning my own pearl harbor on them. I plan on cleaning them out and making them part of my nation. Currently they are allied with me and part of my sphere. That will change soon. This was in the plans a long time ago but put on the side because I wanted to see how I matched up with Russia. Here are the beginnings of my new invasion force.


Here is a look at the factories that just took off once I westernized. I have not payed too much attention to them other than trying to keep people employed. Boy I hate canned food factories.


A look at my production


Some people just are doormats, and Brunei happens to be on of them. I got a cut down to size CB on them. I also added a war goal Humiliate to add some prestige.




A look at my house. Still lots of conservatives.

Oh goodie, a free excuse to attack Russia. Ok the hell with Japan again. This is too good to pass up. Russia is currently at war with the USA and their best ally that could possibly do anything to me is Holland. Plus they are having problems with liberal rebs everywhere. What should I take from them? I'm thinking somewhere in the west.
