Excellent updates november. And very interesting seeing how you've managed to rise up.
You WON a war with Russia? On extremely favorable terms? Without taking their capital????
Well, Brazil will undoubtedly win the game. The question is, how many continents can she take before 1920.
Nicomacheus said:On the unexpected Russian peace: I think that occupying those provs of Prussia gives you war score against Russia, since Prussia and Russia are allies. The relationship is the same as the fact that occupation of a satellite produces warscore on its mother country.
Nicomacheus said:At least that army of 57 divisions is well positioned for you to attack it!
Nicomacheus said:At this point, are there any SA countries not under you domination?
Nicomacheus said:EDIT: If BB is a concern, why not give some of the Russian provs to Otto?
Golden_Deliciou said:I say you go satellite Britain....
Morpheus506 said:Either release some satellites in those provinces or sell 'em to somebody--that seems a bit overstretching... well, unless you turned half the population there to soldiers and started pumping out the garrisons
november said:That would be possible if I increased my fleet’s transport capacity to, say, 50. I could load the troops and station them off Great Britain’s coast then declare war. I could probably count on the troops disembarking safely, and there’s a good chance that the first province would fall quickly so that the fleet could enter the safety of the port.
Golden_Deliciou said:If you were feeling really gamey you could put smaller suicide fleets in each of the adjacent sea zones to delay the British whilst you made your landing.
stnylan said:What a lovely war. Note about that province filed for later reference.
anonymous4401 said:There's a problem with that. Suicide fleets tend to hold out for about three days, the MINIMUM number of days a battle can take. However, unloading may take more than three days. The British also tend to have a very good fleet, thus ensuring that the suicide fleet will last only three days.
But hey, you're Brazil, and can actually build ships! So perhaps a warship screen instead of suicide fleets? Like surround an all-transport navy with warship navies?
november said:The 600k army that attacked Fogaras neraly evaporated in a matter of days. Thank god I was albe to extricate them.
It may have been a blesing in disguise. I assumed I would blow through Fogaras and take the offensive. If I had launched a general offensive and spread my forces out—I shudder to think what might have happened. The massive Russian army that eventualyy appeared on my front was a total shock.
Golden_Deliciou said:Well I was figuring they would be warships- just against the Royal Navy it'd be suicide.
Mind you, the AI tends to send its fleets into battle without mobilising them, particularly early in the war. So it might not be a problem.
anonymous4401 said:Yeah, the Russians are surprising.
I thought that eight regular infantry divisions, entrenched at 40 in a province with forests and mountains would be enough to hold back the Russian tide if I did this for each of the provinces on the Korean border.
It wasn't. :wacko:
november said:Yes, I’m so impressed that I’m changing plans for my next game. I need more experience fighting the Big Boys. So instead of Peru or Mexico, I’m thinking about Otto, Prussia or France.
