I've just finished reading the entire thread in one sitting. Truly excellent game and write up!
To be honest, I've played a campain or two in Victoria 2 and I just can't get into that game. I want to, but I'm just not having that much fun with it. Maybe AHD will change that...Convert this to Victoria 2
Thank you very much, Arrianus.
Thanks, Jack LEagle. It's very encouraging to hear that.I've just finished reading the entire thread in one sitting. Truly excellent game and write up!
Best gameplay AAR I've read since that WC with Tibet on the Vicky boards.
And I don't even like gameplay AARs usually!
Good to hear you learned from my AAR. I'm a bit surprised, though, as I focussed on how to deal with the factions and basically assumed the readers would know how to run a normal EU3 country.I got EU3Chronicles about the time you posted this epilogue. I saw this AAR yesterday and its absolutely great gameplay tutorial to someone like me. I've never played EU3 before . I just have a question. I haven't played a lot so my question would most probably be silly! :ninja:
Halfway through - when you had finished North America maybe you could have torn through India. Its inferior technology and high-scale production; I have come to believe that India is easy money for any nation even at Oriental tech level. The Hindu nations don't even westernize to the Muslim tech levels. Taking Europe is something harder to do, but with extra money earned easily and with higher supply limits in each Indian province... you could have cleaned Europe faster and better maybe. As you had already "confuciated" half of India, it would have been only easier My question is - Did you have any particular obstruction or did you just pass up the idea for the European take down.
Also Chinese and Indian provinces provide more production income than Western counterparts, did you use Production advisers ever? I believe you wanted to take all trade in the world, but in the particular Ming situation of factions, pushing production tech would have been more money. I play at Normal difficulty and I find that on conquering India I get a standing balance of 10000 ducats without going for any inflation causing minting or even appointing a master of mint at full centralization. African minor mutapa and madagascar generally have gold provinces more than american. I just wanted to learn from a master
