Yes, Austria's situation looks entirely unenviable.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Thank you very much, I do try to give the moves a good strategic analysis and try to disregard hindsight (which is pretty easy since the game was a week ago ).looks like some good builds. also, good analysis!
Britain: Keegan's building up his naval power which could mean a convoy of his army in Wales later on or it could mean he's planning to just overpower Elias and me with naval supremacy. Whatever it is, I need to get another navy in Brest, soon.
France: I got a fleet in Marseilles so I could possibly make an offensive against Italy in the near future, but I still need to guard against a naval attack from Keegan or an unlikely offensive by Elias.
Germany: Two armies. He's definitely not worried about Keegan, so he's probably building up for an attack on Russia or Austria. Or me. I'll have to wait and see.
Italy: A navy in Naples. Danny's probably going to be guarding against a Turkish naval offensive, but it doesn't look like he's planning on attacking anyone anytime soon. This hesitancy could lead to his downfall.
Austria: Sam seems to be aware of his undefended Russian flank and is preparing to defend it. Either that or he's going for an offensive against Germany. If he does I could probably get some territory.
Turkey: Thomas looks like he's going for a naval offensive to the west and a land offensive in the Balkans. He has left his Russian front in Armenia disturbingly open, however, and could face problems if Marshall takes that advantage.
Russia: Marshall appears to be setting up an attack on Germany's eastern front, which for now is dangerously left open. If that happens then I'm afraid there may be nothing to stop the Russian steamroller from taking all Europe.
Yeah, now that I look at it more I see that it's more likely a plan for an offensive against Austria than a defensive against Russia.I can not agree with you upon the Russian German question. It is not usual that people move to Prussia or Silesia if they only have defence in mind, the lack of SC in those provinces should do well as buffer.
