Very dynamic. I assume there will be the second war with France. In Asia you have no competitors now. So I hope more Europeans will hmm... come to 'occupy your time'

I aim to pleaseExcellent post! I'm glad you had the time to write some more!
Thanks. I will try to make the 1600s as Chinese as possibleSweet update. It seems the 1600s are going to be the Chinese century.
Nice to hear this AAR has inspired you.This is awesome! I've given some thought to playing an Asian nation with DW, but I had originally thought of Japan. You might have changed my mind
As you might have noticed in Episode 15, yep, there is another French war coming our way. One cookie for you for precognitive ability And don't worry, there will be more friendly Chinese-European contact in the future.Very dynamic. I assume there will be the second war with France. In Asia you have no competitors now. So I hope more Europeans will hmm... come to 'occupy your time'
I must admit, I'm quite proud of my victories there. It's seldom that I manage to win against superior numbers and I managed to defeat a force almost twice as big as mine and completely annihilate it. Too bad my brave 5th Corps was wiped out by the next French Expeditionary Force.Yes, update, nicely done against france.
France has annexed Inca and has colonies in the North of South America and in the Carribean. Problem with taking these colonies, however, is that they cost a lot of Infamy as I do not have a Casus Belli for them.Can't wait to see how this war will play out. Although seeing how powerful China is, I have no doubts it'll emerge victorious. Is there anything worth taking from France though? I doubt if you could grab a European province from them, do they have any colonies left?
The war was indeed the most difficult one so far.That's an impressive monopoly! Nicely done...though the BBB seems eager for revenge. Should be a hard fight ahead of you!
I hope so, otherwise the AAR is overDange, france strikes again, cna you handle it?
Tohancapan is France's target. I am not sure how France got a core on it, but they had a colony next to Tohancapan, so maybe France got a core on it with Border Conflict or another event like that.Hmm, perhaps I have missed something-- which province of yours is a French core?
I expect the second Sino-French war will be a greater victory to China, but then, in game mechanics, hard to get the war score high without invading Europe. And I'm doubtful about your projection power to succeed in that. If it takes six months to reach Mexico, probably longer for France, and short of building 75-90 transports I doubt that an invading force can survive in French territory...
Oh!, the suspense!
I just edited the name of the MNG tag from "Ming" to "China" and changed the colour and flag. It's all modded by me, there is no ingame way to form China AFAIK. I changed Ming into China after becoming a republic in 1559, as it no longer did make sense to call the country Ming.Did you do some editing to add China in the game, or is there a decision for that in DW?

Nicely done winning World War One/
Go China ^^
Great to see it back. A glorious victory!
Well, some people would say that by playing Ming you've pretty much won, or that when Ming is Westernized the game is basically over. And while I dominate economically and technologically, I haven't the strongest military. GB has one of the weaker land forces of the great powers and it's about equal to mine. Nations like France and Austria have double the army I have. I do have the second strongest navy, but GBs navy outclasses mine by a large margin. Lastly, the faction system still limits my actions to a large degree, making China weaker than other nations with the same economy and military force. So while China is very strong in 1640, it is by no means the only superpower in town.A link to TVTropes! Yay!
World War I in 1628-1637! The only weak point of it is that you didn't show us any pictures of invasion of Britain. But one can't have everything...
And also: by being 19 tech levels ahead of competitors you've pretty much already won the game, haven't you? What's your goal now, usual world domination? Cooler world domination by making vassals all over the world and owning all important CoTs? If I were you I'd have made some events about massive civil war just to make AAR look more tense. Ofcourse, I'm not saying that it needs additional tense just after WWI, but if you ever feel that the story lacks something, you'll know what to do
Not yet, but it was indeed close.excellent i was worried this AAR had died
True, but I also think the victory was so easy and devastating by my enormous tech lead over Minamoto. China's naval tech is 29 and IIRC Minamoto's is around 10.Ashantai said:Those galleys really are useless, even in inland seas....
