Been playing this game for a lot of years now. Feeling like I've almost beaten the game now.
I managed to beat 1914 Russia on VH which I had struggled with for 5 years and Japan vs Allies and USSR at the same time on VH. Used to have a 1945 Endsieg here on an alt-account too somewhere.
All that remains is this I'm probably getting stomped into the ground but it will hopefully be a fun stomping to come along and wa...eh not that you're into that kind of thing I'm sure. You wouldn't want to see a poor ol WW1 Veteran whose already failed at his dream of becoming an artist fail at his dream of making Germany great again.
So let's hope for the best!
This is gonna be a bit of a memie AAR. I do love roleplaying but this is beyond roleplaying. Everything except gaming the actual code is allowed (like droppng resources to 0 to use up money for decisions or constantly reloading to stop attacks)).
So without further adooooo I bring you:
Secret Dossier: Make Germany Great Again.
Attempt 2: Do
1933 - The Year that Democracy took its last breath.
The Weimarflag was forbidden and the enabling act passed.
Finally our turn has come again.
Germany, seemingly forever doomed for a war it did not start now suffers failure at every front. Our diplomats are weakwilled, our industry in decades behind and our army cursed.
Even the gods seem to be against us. Our enemies think of us as broken but this cabal gathered here knows that our difficulties have only made our resolve stronger.
A plan has been drawn up.
Hidden caches of weapons exist all over Germany, ancient stock but kept in pristine condition.
Allies hold their breath in Czechoslovakia, Dresden, Austria, Saarland and elsewhere, waiting for the time to strike.
Italy hasn't been given what was promised them. Hungary is looking for revenge.The potential is there and conflict is once again brewing.
The Western Capitalists, too invested in the peace time economy and the western people weary of a new war will be squezed and then crushed.
It is the East that we fear.
Our industry will never be able to compete, we lack resources and we lack manpower. Each year that passes once our hand is shown will be one more year that the Red horde grows stronger and more determined. A war must be provoked. A war where we, this time, are the victims. The Soviet Union must be seen as the enemy of Europe and Germany as its final and only defender.
No Tech-team takever
No Dem War
No full IC takeover.
What will follow are some screenshots of events that have passed so far.
In general what has happened is that an aggressive trade policy has netted Germany a huge economic boon enabling it to boost its research considerably ahead of the world.
Large oil stocks have been procured from SA and Iran.
Much of everything else has been standard.
Germany has since day1 in 1933 shared its tech with neutral and axis nations in exchange for supplies and money while actively sabotaging industry and science in the west and east.
Victory was easily achieved in Spain. The Wehrmacht was reformed from the previously mentioned stocks as late as possible to save on supplies. Annexations of Austria and Czechoslovakia were also somewhat held back to hold off "Gearing up for War" events, same with the occupation of the Rheinland.
Slowly but steadily Germany has conscripted its population while dealing with dissent, trading one positive event for one conscription decision every year or so.
The year is 1939, Winter. The USSR is about to invade. Here are some events leading up to it:
Polish battle of the borders about to begin in August 1939:
Realised about the same time that I didn't have the tech for my Paratroopers to actually do some paradropping.
"I'm so pro the game can't keep up with my brilliance".
August 16:th there's one less country in Europe. Poland? More like Poor-land.
Ok Ok but I already did the facepalm meme .
Here's a screenie instead!
Some minor encirclements in France. Brussles was captured using Paratroopers, Holland declared war against Germany feeling really brave and destroyed one Garrison at Willhelmshaven but is now regretting playing with the big boys. Plans are made for a Para-assult against Paris.
There are some tanks at the bottom as well being made.
