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.

That's it? Is that a readers mission? It doesn't seem too hard given your naval supremacy.

Who owns Manhattan now?
It's not going to be hard, but it will be time consuming. ;)

Miirshak said:
good work on france :p

hope you can finish everything in time! :)
Me too, If I can't, I'll have to extend the timeline.

TrojanAC said:
looks like norway (or venice ^^)
You would think, but Venice I annexed, and Norway was incorporated into the Swedish empire along time ago. :)

Snugglie said:
You're gonna conquer Manhattan from Norway? Oh please, that ought to be fixed in one or two updates. :p Pity it wasn't some other province in the US of A, that would have meant another mastodont war against France.
Nope, Norway no longer exists.

It'll be a war against... :eek:

Mohatma said:
How do you recover your stability so fast if you don't invest in it and you're a BIG emppire?
Well, here's the thing, I have been at +3 Stability for about 200 years now. When I declare war, I look for the weakest link, that also gives me no stability cost. If you maintain your empire at +3 stab, you don't have to worry about gaining stability. :)

It could be USA
It is!!! :D

The USA. :eek: I win!!!

comagoosie said:
Darn still not my mission next.

How big is the line? :D
Yours is after this one! ;)

spl said:
We have to annex a 1 province USA, what a mission :rolleyes:
How are you so sure it's only one province?

Maybe they have an enormous empire on the other side of the continent!!!

Capibara said:
I knew my sombreros would help :D Next mission doesn't look that difficult.
Nope. And the sombreros, along with our new hats, won the war!!! :D

It was the Papal Empire from the beggining!!! :D


Alteran said:

It took me one year and half. But France was somehow at 34% WC. :confused:

And they only had about 30k troops on the continent.

robou said:
so the French keeping on their top form for sterotypicalness as usual... jolly good :)
:rofl: If they had pre-ordered the nice hats like us, maybe their situation wouldn't have been so disasterous!! :D

What are your suggestions?

What's wrong. You want to fight, but you have a little trouble breathing. Perhaps you should not have swallowed that coin and it was even a 2 euro coin, that's a big one. Can't imagine how that got there. :D


I think that makes it two all.
