People's Commissar of the Navy

Well, I thought that to win you need to be both LD and ND but I might be wrong.
Also, AFAIK, there is one little catch - you need to be at peace (which kinda sucks as at peace you would lose Gibraltar and Malta).
You need to be both Land and Naval dominant, and you must have taken all your cores as well as be at peace as Athalcor.
If no state is both Land and Naval dominant, then the state with the highest prestige will secure a 'minor' victory.
Unless it's changed you don't need to be at peace to win, the game gave me a win as Spain while still at war with France and only occupying the provinces needed from them.
Really? Not like in my Austria game...
I have screenshots and a save game from when it happened, it might have been patched since I played that one. I'll try it tonight when I get home and see.
Was that win at the end of the game timeframe? As far as I recall, peace is required for a pre-1821 win. If you occupy all dominance targets by December 1820, I think the game still calls it a dominance victory though.
Seems like Spanish ideas mainly makes your militiamen stronger and cheaper, which points to a human wave strategy. Does Spain really have the manpower to make a quantity over quality strateqgy appealing?
I've been spending manpower pretty freely on guards and horse artillery; maybe with a year or two of minimal war I'll start cranking out militia.
Sounds like a lot of different opinions on achieving victory. A prestige victory is probably not possible, since I've been using satellites instead of annexation. Of course, if I never get a peace with the British, these last few years could be extremely dull anyway...
