I just need one more tile of french clay and I can be the Kingdom of Britanny instead of a shitty duchy. So I guess I'll murder their rulers and encourage dissent so they get into another civil war I can profit off of.

HoI is shit don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

While I don't like the time period of Vicky 2, it's probably the best game, in terms of economy. If you must play it, play uit with all expansions and HPM mods.

CK2 for longevity/roleplaying. This is the one I usually play, currently trying to form a strategy on surviving kebab/poos as Zunist. I can deal with kebab, but I'm surrounded by poos. I've had to restart 5 times already due to warmongering poos.

EU IV for blobbing and beginners.

The only one I've played is Cathar, and it didn't have incest only it gave more power to females. Is it Lollard or Fraticelli? I've never played either.

Sure, but why use county lines for the provincial borders within the state?

I mean all American administrative borders serve as a terrible basis for province borders, but even if state borders must be adhered can't at least the borders within those realms change a bit?

Plus those straight lines always clash horribly with the rest of the map.

Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II are the easiest to start with, but there's still a pretty big learning curve for folks who've never played a Grand Strategy game, and even for people who are used to Civilization and Total War.

Play the tutorials, they're not going to help too much but they're something to at least get you started. Then play as a fairly powerful and easy country and see if you can get your shit together, it's alright if you lose as long as you've learned.

basically i was playing observe from 769, and the byzantine empire got fucking disbanded. when I started playing it was just reformed, having only constantinople, in ~836 I think. the emperor also had like -4000 prestige, and was constantly losing piety. He was also Armenian.

now I'm his grandson, because his kids died of illness, and his last direct heir got fucking murdered by his wife.

In Europe all of Charlemagne's son's kids started marrying muslims, so the karlings are all brown now. They're still Christian tho.

The gif I posted is a year old and using an earlier version of VeF (which also limited blobbing unlike vanilla). How did I do it?


I literally only played with Bulgaria for several months. Every small mistake that resulted in me ceding territory was followed by a full restart and another attempt. After something like ~25 attempts, I learned every single step I needed to take with Bulgaria to conquer Europe. The campaign I posted has me annexing Russia, because I was lucky enough to also get a PU and integrate them. How do you do that shit with Bulgaria tho?

What I used to do is split my rivals by 3 groups : Europe, East and Muslims. They were usually rivals between themselves too. What happens here is that every time you get AE against one side, you get close to none against the others. If you blob hard into Anatolia you will get 0 AE against the Golden Horde and Europe. The only thing I did to secure my safety from Europe is to ally all my relevant close neighbors - Poland, Hungary, Austria and Naples. You get 0 AE against your allies. Then, after I was big enough to land an army to beat everyone around me, I simply started diploannexing (creating a vassal, feeding him territories, making his spend ADM to core them, then annexing it). You can see that from all the growing miniblobs and then suddenly having them turn into me. Another thing I did was waiting for a state with a lot of cores to disappear, then taking one of their cores and releasing it as a vassal, then proceeding to reclaim all its territory for almost no AE. And another thing, when you get coalitioned by everyone, declare war on a single-state country, that way you get 100% against the coalition when you occupy it (or at least used to a year ago)
So that's basically how you blob with Bulgaria, throw in a bit of RNG and luck and you might as well do what I did plus China. I needed 30 more years and I would've integrated Scandinavia, Africa and the UK, and possibly puppeted China

In your experience, does USA (if they even form) ever go from coast to coast?

I just finished a campaign were they absolutely kicked ass and eventually conquered pretty much the entirety of modern day USA, Canada (except BC) and parts of N. Mexico.

The campaign before that they sucked. Which outcome would you say is more likely?

I have a lof of fun playing National Napoleonic France in this mod. I'm kind of stuck in a statu-quo though. French commune collapsed and I was only able to reclaim south of France before German restored French Kingdom in the north.

At the beginning I decided to go for east and make a second and sucessfull Egypt campaign so my Napoleon can restore his dynasty prestige.

I didn't stop and thought It was a good idea to achieve Alexander the great dream. Then I came back in Europe by taking commie south of Italy and then the war broke between Germany and the Commune. Communard were more busy fighting their brothers in Marseille instead of fighting the Reich.

I'm thinking about invading Romania, Poland, etc. To gain more power but I still feel like in a war against German Empire is near impossible to win. I would loose on every front (Asia, Africa, Europe) and I'm not sure I would achieve anything meaningfull even if I concentrated all my forces on just one front.

Theodoro is the territory (Gothic culture) south of Crimea, that usually gets cucked into vassaldom within the first 10 years or so. How he was able to take all that territory, yet at the same time abandon his original province, I don't know.
>>
>>53730276
A lot of smaller nations have nicer ideas. Navarra has some pretty good ideas too but unless you ally with France and another Iberian kingdom, you'll be cucked. Even then, they'll still try to get you to become a vassal by increasing your opinion of them and asking you to become a vassal.

>Is Ukraine your vassal/buffer state?
Yeah it's a client state. My vassals: Lithania, Livonian Order, Ukraine, Greater Armenia.
>How did you do it?
I don't remember that much because it was months ago, but I know that I've allied Georgia or Circassa, defeated Crimea, took some provinces and vassalized them, then I allied Muscovy I think.

I also remember Lithuania and Poland bullying me, had some big problems with them before I grew in power enough.

Just straight conquering, did it for achievement because I enjoy completing them.

So much hate for HoI.

HoI2 and DH are both very good and fun. They have the Kaiserreich mod, which is the best mod in the history of paradox games. Tho it's gotten a bit worse the last years since Akira and Kibbles left.

EU3 used to be fun and good despite its many flaws, but now EU4 is actually fixed enough that it's cleanly better. EU4 isn't perfect by any stretch but it's a p good place to start. My issue with it is that games tend to look alike too much. It's always France, Austria, Ottos and Muscovy blobbing. 95% of games. So for me at least if you mod it to be less predictable that makes it A LOT more fun. Because it gets old seeing the same old blobs every game.

V2 is okay because it has some fun unique aspects like pops and industrialising can be satisfying.
>tfw assimilating slovenians, croatians and hungarians into germans
Feels good man
But the issue with V2 is that it's very static, it's all full of huge blobs and the games tend to look alike. I don't find it fun because I like to play as a small country and get ripped.

Then there's CK2 which is good or bad depending on if you can feel immersed in the setting. It has many broken aspects and it's bad at portraying recession of empires, if something like the HRE starts big then it'll only get bigger, unlike what happened historically, so that's some shit.

So overall, they're all flawed, because paradox aren't very good, they're "pro indie devs" if you can imagine that, they're not as good at making games as some other studios. But they're the biggest devs making this fringe genre of games so autists gotta deal with it

I could never get into Kaiserreich, its randomness is both a blessing and a curse. Also, I think it lacks a large scale conflict that make DH and HoI games so fun.

I still remember my first DH game as Soviet Union where Germany actually managed to advance right up to Moscov and Stalingrad before I managed to barely stall them and push them off, was really close.

I have had memorable games both in Kaiserreich and in vanilla.

My favorite vanilla game was one where I was Germany and my bro was France, and we allied right at the start and then proceeded to conquer the world and split it up between us. It was fucking great. I remember our slow grinding war against Russia, I was kinda noobish back then so I advanced very slowly and made encirclements methodically. It was safe, but very slow. The upswing was that we only lost like 3 or 4 battles the whole war, they had no chance against my panzers. Also, my friend kept trying to assassinate Stalin, and right as we had broken the soviets and were cleaning up, he actually succeeded, so we had a big laugh about that.

My favorite KR game was with the same friend, I was Japan and he was Bengal (the poo in loo socialists). I built over a 100 mechanized divisions that game. I remember when we had over 4 million soldiers and tanks gathered in the caucasus, ready to declare war and march into Russia, after only a few months my mech divs had eaten up my entire stockpile of oil and I didn't even notice how fast it happened. We were so overwhelmingly powerful that we could just attack move everywhere and the Russians couldn't do anything. So that was fun. We also had a gigantic battle in Lithuania against a huge German army, it was one of the bloodiest battle I've ever seen in a game, millions dead after months of fighting (the legendary German troops being ridiculously stubborn as usual). We broke the Germans and pushed all the way to the French border. Good times.

I think the randomness of KR is only a good thing, like I said, I don't like determinism and things playing out the same way every time. I understand that many armchair generals love this, they want to reneeact the historical etc, but I'd rather see something entirely different or surprising every time if possible, new scenarios to try to adapt to.

AYO HOL UP HANS

If you start past the American discovery (my mission is to eradicate British in all of their forms, everywhere. And American means British in my dictionary) you must start late. How are you supposed to kill USA if USA was not formed?

Also Genoa will get rekt by Florenz and Savoy-Piedmont soon unless you attack them first, but one is under the SoI of France, and the other is under the SoI of Austria...

>Not playing ironman

You don't know how many restarts to get a "perfect" run as a smaller nation. Reclaiming former Byzantium territories was annoying, for example. If it wasnt for the Commonwealth, Osmans would have cucked me, without a doubt. I'm currently trying to do a Taberstan --> Persia run, but I'll have to restart due to Russia and a GH run (conquer all former Mongolian territory) but it's 1670~ and I've only just conquered some land in Persia, I don't think I'll be able to take on Ming/Qing especially since Bukhara is allied to Ottomans and now Bukhara is attacking Persia.

Then again I'm not the best gsg player, so what do I know.

Is Genoa really that mush weaker than Florence? I'd imagine if would be vice versa.

>>53732098
>I think the randomness of KR is only a good thing, like I said, I don't like determinism and things playing out the same way every time.
Stuff I don't like is for example, you can start as Austria, and then in 1 year, you can get all of Balkans, Hungary and Bohemia for free without even firing a single bullet, or you can have them all declare war on you.
Same with many other nations, when all your plans depend on a roll of a dice.

Had some fun KR game as France recently though.
>fighting is stalled in mid Germany, can't really advance

HoI is nothing like other Paradox games
It's focused on very small period of time and has great combat system, unlike the other games, while it lacks in other aspects due to very limited scope.
It's more of a tactical and strategy war game than GS game.

That's a very situational bonus though. I think Genoa is stronger because it probably bathes in money from trade from the very start.
>>
>>53732445
Genoa starts with one division made of 1 horsemen and 4 infrastry, 6 galleys, 4 trade ships, 3 heavy ships. When Florence and Savoy march into your tiny 2 province country, it's over
>>
>>53733098
>Bathes in money
Yet the surrounding Italian city states want your province/hate you apart from Milan (don't remember), Crimea wants your territories. It's a shame EU doesn't have the functionality of creating trading posts like in CK2 for merchant republics.
>>
>>53733114
If only you could build more regiments.
Geona is a powerhouse actually, it has great missions, events, is a republic, and is situated in the best trade node in the game, can easily expand into Asia and Africa if you want. Only ideas are shitty, but those don't matter that much when playing against the AI.

Mazandaran (Tabarestan) and Mongolia are my vassals, which more appropriate since Russian Empire never directly annexed the areas.

I suppose I should've left Moldavia/Wallachia as a vassal too, but felt like fortifying the area against Ottomans myself.

That's true, Austria is very random because RNG for each event, but hey, just giving you all that shit for free would be weird... It's true that should probably be handled in some better way, I don't know, I don't find Austria enjoyable to play even if you do annex the whole empire. so I don't care.

I Love the second american civil war in KR, it's really cool and fun. CSA 4 lyfe.
