I bet Europeans tremble! Are you planning to create a bigger vassal out of the opm 'England'?
Song didn't administer a reign of terror, just the occasional light shower.In the Forbidden City there is true Democracy: One man, One vote. Sung has the vote.
Thank you.I am impressed and inspired by your China campaign. Taking the war to the British was a bold and audacious move. Well done!
Now that would be spoiling. My plans are my own.I bet Europeans tremble! Are you planning to create a bigger vassal out of the opm 'England'?
Um, I did, I annexed Shawnee in February 1652. What land should I have taken?Why didnt you seize Shwnee's lands?
I've just been reading through your AAR over the last few days and I am impressed. Every time someone mentions the new faction system, they always complain about it. It's cool to see that at least someone has learned to master it. This AAR has actually encouraged me to attempt a game as Ming, although I probably won't be as successful as you. Any tips you could offer a novice?
Aah, now I understand what you mean, sorry about that. Well, only if the population of a province is under 1000 can you seize it. All of the Native American provinces had higher populations than that. Also, with Divine Wind all tech groups can research the first few tech levels quite quickly, so the Native Americans were able to build level 1 forts in every province by the time I attacked them.Then why didnt you seize them, as like, colonies?

Confucean Britain, and now Confucean Granada? Wow, that was unespected at the beginning of the game...
I can just picture the members of the three factions randomly running in and out of the Forbidden City in a continuous motion, since they swap so often.
By the way, I started my game as Ming and I'm really enjoying it. Trying to balance the factions can be challenging, yet fun.
Well, there is certainly a pattern, isn't there?It feekls very weird to see Confucian Rome, will you release a puppet in Italy?
Oooh, nice idea, but sadly there is already another Papal States somewhere in Germany. Besides, I really want those extra missionaries the Vatican trains for me.I fear that he will release a confucian papal state, thus creating chinese pope.

Well actually, a lot of wars ended in a white peace, so they are technically not victories. This makes the history page an amusing read. "The xx war of agression ended with a return to the status quo." Umm, I got 10 provinces out of that?Song has certainly had a fruitful reign. A shining legacy, with a few unfortunate defeats in battle, but with all wars won. I can't wait to see what's next!
I think it proves that you shouldn't underestimate the A.I rotten luck in having its fleet just nearbyThis naval defeat was like But it only proves that without some well-thought mechanism of potential internal strife empires will never die in EUIII. So much unlike in real life.
I'm starting to get the reverse version of that problem: if I see other people's screenshots, the first second I wonder why there is no Castille.I spent several seconds looking at Castille wondering why it was green, until I remembered that you swapped the colours. It seems like China is asserting itself as the new world power. Too bad about losing your navy though.
I have four provinces with level 6 Naval buildings working around the clock, so it won't be long until I get a new fleet. Besides, I did trash the Venician, Castillian and to a lesser extend the French fleet, so I'm not the only one with naval problems.Oh man...what a defeat at sea! I hope you're able to quickly rebuild your ships for the next round!
