Last thread, I tried a supremecist Talouse game. Sadly, that didn't go too well as I waited too long and Auquilia took over the Empire and was so powerful, that I decided to join Wingbardy against them. It didn't end well.

Now I started a new game, prepared my army better and acted earlier before attacking Wingbardy. Here is the result. Wingbardy also decided to attack New Mareland and later Phrywhen for reasons beyond my understanding.

And Wingbardy soon capitulated, but not before Phrywhen, who was also at war with the River Coalition leading to a rather funny boarders. Meanwhile, i have to deal with Asterion as they are in the Karinthian Pact.
That is some horrendous bordergore
Do the Changelings ever win in your games? After the update they're not even getting close in my games.

When are we getting posadism in EAW?
Blame the coalition.

A barbed cock up the ass was your own choice, anon. Nobody to blame, really.
What are you even talking about?
You know, I really, really like EaW, but it really is a shame how uninteresting the general map design is. There's almost no large islands, inland seas or straits, or when these exist they're largely irrelevant, meaning that the already marginal naval warfare aspects of the game are made entirely useless for the most part. Most nations just exist on these two huge chunks of land where you typically just have to account for rivers and mountains, and sometimes other terrain. Typically you fight fairly conventional wars on large fronts, with none of the interesting geographical particularities of a Britain or Japan, or honestly even an Italy.

I know I personally have a fondness for naval warfare that's unusual, but I can't be the only one who feels this way, right? From Britain in the west to the USSR in the east, Norway in the north to the Mediterranean in the South, Europe is way more interesting as a battleground than either continent in EaW.
I honestly don't think the Navy is relevant even in Vanilla. I never build ships and still win with Germany just through air superiority. Building a navy just takes too long and helps too little in my opinion. But the devs want to tackle the problem with Zebrica update.
The navy often isn't that important, aside from in the case of certain nations or situations, and air power is obviously very powerful. Typically you don't want to invest much effort into it as nations like Germany, your factories and oil are better used elsewhere. Obviously the war at sea is generally less important than the war on the ground, but I still think naval warfare as it currently exists has some problems in Vanilla.
Either way, it feels to me like EaW's approach makes navies even more vestigial than they already are, which just doesn't feel right to me.
playing as baltimare trying to get that one nation to rise up because im tired of playing as all the fucking minors ive been playing as since 0.4 for fucks sake

btw could someone actually tell me how to get them to rise up and if they are actually worth playing?
Are you talking about Ahuizotl? Yes, he is definitely worth it. To get him you must go full, 100% statist during your civil war tree, and after the civil war it will pop up after a certain political focus is completed.
Thinking about playing as Yale, but I can't decide between the paths. What do you people prefer, Grover II or that other Supremacist project? How's the Non-Aligned path?
Looking to the future is okay but unfinished when compared to zombie one
Non-aligned is cool, you can research techs two years ahead without penalties and it has nice event chain about reforms even on technocratic path, there's also harmonic one but I didn't try it
I agree with you completely. I wish Navy was important.
Cool, thanks Anon. I think I'll give the Non-Aligned path a go today, and then get back around to the Grover II path in the future.

And here's after Asterion capitulated. Despite me controlling most of everything at that point, Equestria simply couldn't help themselves and had to make these shitty useless puppets just to cuck me out of nice looking borders. I hope the changelings fucking kill them.

I only played as Grover II, but that was very fun, albeit a little easy once you unified Herzland. I can't imagine it being much different from the other one.

Thankfully, it seems that I can still form the Talonsian Empire and core the Karinthian states.

My focus tree also gives me a wargoal and coring potential on Sicemon, Falcor and New Mareland. Since Auquilia is fighting the coalition, I decided to take out New Mareland as Equestria is probably gonna die soon anyway.
And after a very quick war, New Mareland and those shitty puppets are mine. Now I'm just hoping that the changelings won't be taking anything from Griffonia once they capitulate Equestria.

So I noticed earlier that I could sue for peace with Equestria as a decision. I made a save earlier in case something like this happened as I wanted the remaining Griffonian territories they had. Sadly, that is impossible now as Chrysalis is a greedy bitch, so here's the final result. If I want to clean up the border gore, I'll need to invade the changelings.

Now I'm looking towards Auquillia and the stalemate there. I'm tempted to invade the frenchbirbs while their fighting, but I kinda enjoy watching that war from a distance. It depends on how much I feel like it after I core everything.

After letting the game run for a while, I figured I may as well go for continental domination as I need Griffonstone to core New Mareland, Sicemon and Falcor anyway. Auquilia has 0 ponypower and the Coalition isn't much better off making them both easy targets for my now massive military.

And just like that, in under a few months, Auquilia has capitulated leaving only its puppets to carry on the fight.

Auquilia's capitulation was shortly followed by Herzland after I gathered my forces for another push. Cloudburry won't last long.

I managed to take quite a few lands and am now in a dilemma. Should I become the successor to the Empire or not? I'm not sure if I can continue down my focus tree once I capture Griffonstone if I do so. Maybe I'll just make a save and see for myself.

Due to the quickly rising world tension Equestria militarizes much faster then before. Thinking about it now this is going to become a very common thing come the Zebrica update.

Finally I can uphold Dengist thought in EaW.
Honestly, it looks like it goes beyond Dengism, this is full-on Whinnie the Pooh thought with slavery characteristics

You have enough canon races to do anything you want.
Since the next HOI4 DLC will appearently have a tank designer, will it be implemented in the mod in an interesting way i.e. magical parts?

At the end it is going to be just different stat changes.

I don't think this will be all that useful at this point, but damn...
It's honestly just going to make everything harder to make and research. Kinda like how you now have to research dual-purpose guns and torpedoes and battleship artillery and shit like that after MtG. Paradox did say you'd now have to research all the arty and shit to get tank guns and stuff working.

And I think I'll stop this here as no new event popped up. I do have one last focus, but thats an alliance with Auquilia, which I can't do for obvious reasons and I really don't feel like slogging it out against the changelings at this point.

Overall, supremecist Talouse is pretty fun if you want to start off as a small, weak nation and grow large. It can be difficult if your unlucky via an early Empire unification, but its doable. It also has some nice lore to it. I'm thinking of trying out Wingbardy next or perhaps Auquilia.

After my Talouse campaign, I decided to start another one. This time as harmonist Wingbardy. Appearently you can become either commie or harmony through the antifachist route and one of those harmony routes actually allows for some expansion.

So now I have some time before the civil war starts I guess. I do have some focuses I can do to strengthen myself before that. In my decisions, it seems that Wingbardy gets a parliment system along with a decision to fight the mafia and an Alter of the Fatherland thing, which has four options to build to once certain requiraments are reached giving multiple benefits.

And the civil war has started. Before it began, there were some nice events of various people preparing for it and a system where I could essentially pick which state I get to start with in the war via a 10PP and 10 day decision for each state. Given the time I had, I selected the ones you see on the screencap. Unexpectadly, Francistria decided to join Beakolini against me.

The civil war certainly leaves me at a bit of a disadvantage. Most of my troops are trash 3wdths and Beakolini starts with the tank division and thats without Francistria. Still, with some micro I should be able to win it.

Got a new tag. I should be able to integrate nations soon. I also had the choice to either join the Entente or reform the Karthinian Pact. Since Auquilia was communist, I went with the latter.

I was able to peacefully puppet then annex and core Talouse via decisions. I also tried to do the same to Falcor, but they refused and it gave me a wargoal on them. Now its time to reign them in with extreme harmony.
