He's explicitly said in the first post, Russia is the next major target. If he attacks anyone else, it'll be as a means to that end.
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.
i think it would go much worse as the soviets would get over the purges become more powerfull with increased messianismJedrek said:It's a shame RL WWII did not end in this way...

I decided to not go down too dark of a path here and not elaborate too deeply on Hitler's demise. Certainly I mean to suggest he's dead and the skull in place of his flesh symbolizes that. Himmler committed suicide so let's just say Hitler did as well...just as it occurred in RL. Good riddance to bad rubbish.CthulhuPL said:Now I've spotted it! Hahahaha :rofl: But what caused this? Any official statements released by polish government?
It'll certainly be hard to expand and conquer without a smidge of oppression thrown in. My next steps will involve consolidation of my power position in central and eastern Europe. I'll also focus on recuperating after the struggle with Germany which will involve a series of parallel efforts:robou said:Monster Poland! Now it is time to turn your battle-hardened troops either to the east, to the Balkans or too Italy and to continue to take down oppresive regiemes around Europe... of course, you will need to be a little bit opressive from time to time...
Very true. I'm no where close to being prepared for a campaign vs. the Soviet Union. I will indeed be creating a new mobile, mechanized force. As for France...they still provide a useful alliance...westward retribution is still a long way off.Madmonkey24 said:Congratulations on your tremendous victory! Not to be a downer, but the invasion of Russia should be delayed for as long as possible. They still have an advantage in divisions, industrial capacity, resources, and their winters are long and cold. I would suggest (though you don't really need my help) that you build a few mechanized corps (3 tank divisions + 9 motorized/mechanized infantry) and use them to steamroll the high infrastructure provinces of Italy and France. Just me though.
He's dead and that's all I was looking for. Dead, dead, dead.Kaiser_Mobius said:I also saw that little clue with Hitler. What did you do, throw him in a vat of acid or something? :rofl:
Thank you very much for these! I am going to resist the temptation, however, to mod in new tech teams for this particular AAR. I have an upcoming event which rewards me for the victory against Germany (coming very soon). It will approximate what I expect would be a research and technology windfall from a successful campaign against Germany. My overall intention (one of them anyway) is to demonstrate a method of playing Poland within the general framework of a vanilla setup. Modding in new tech teams would pretty much violate that intention. But again, thanks very much for the thoughtful gift. I'll definitely hang on to these and incorporate them in future mods.cegorach said:Why don't you take the spoils of war you have earned so hard.http://rapidshare.com/files/155942140/techpack.rar.html
*nope, no techtem settings just images.
I've tried doing this many times and have never succeeded. The only effect seems to be antagonizing the Soviets and for now I'd rather placate them.Enewald said:Woot, now ask Russia to give your claimed land to Poland!
At the risk of repeating myself, I do have an upcoming event called Wielkopolska that awards cores to me outside of Poland's national boundaries. Roughly speaking, these will approximate what you've described above. Thank you for taking the time for the detailed population analysis! I believe I can win over the hearts and minds of the German people. We will, after all, share a common interest in protecting Europe from the looming Red Menace._tr said:Hmmm... who do you want to conquer next? Second Republik of Poland had a very good relationships with Romania and Hungary, relationships with Latvia and Estonia were good too. Jugoslavia was friendly too. We had bad relations with Lithuania (because Wilno/Vilnus). So you going to attack friendly country or rather hostile one? Maybe Italy is your next target?
I counted population of your country and their ethnic composition
Before 2WW Poland had population 34.8 million:
# Poles – 65,5%. = 23 million
# Ukrainians – 16%. = 5.6 million
# Jews – 9,4%. = 3.3 million
# Bielarussians – 5,5%. = 1.9 million
# Germans – 2,6%. = 0.9 million
Czechoslovakia had population about 15.3 millions
# Czechs: 50% = 6.6 million
# Germans: 24% = 3.2 million
# Slovakians: 18% = 2 million
0.7 million Hungarians
0.5 million Rusyns
0.3 million Jews
0.1 million Poles
Germany had 69.3 million people - mostly Germans
so your emire has now population about 120 million, and:
about 60% of them are Germans
this is very dangerous situation for your country - too many Germans
Maybe it is time for creation of federal country - Slav (edit: without e ) Union and give autonomy to all Slav Brothers (Ukrainians and Belarusians too) -> (add cores in Czechoslovakia and some parts of USRR). You can diploannex Jugoslavia too
Manpower will indeed be critical for the future success of Poland. It is, in my opinion, the single greatest difficulty playing as Poland. Many of my future decisions will revolve around the theme of improving my manpower situation and preparing for war with Russia.Colonel Bran said:The german part is concerning for the future. But he will need every ounce of manpower and IC to defeat the great terror from the east. I hope you skinn the bear soon.
Madagasgar? Seriously? I had no idea any such attempt was made. That's fascinating! Hmmm...perhaps it would look nice painted butter yellow. Something to consider.Jedrek said:It's a shame RL WWII did not end in this way... Now, onwards to build a colonial Empire! Let the French give you Madagascar as a repay for their inactivity
Exactly right.jeffh said:He's explicitly said in the first post, Russia is the next major target. If he attacks anyone else, it'll be as a means to that end.
Actually just after the 1st WW Poland demanded colonies - Madagascar was considerd probably thanks to Maurycy Beniowski - the XVIIIth century adventurer who was a king or an emperor of this island for a while.robw963 said:Madagasgar?
