Kaiserreich 0.15 is out, sporting the brand new Ottoman rework
How do i win the war as ottos wtf
>>251043>Central Powers and Commune are outdated and boring to playI sleep>irrelevant minors get a rework just so 3 autists can play as them REAL SHITAlso, fuck the arabs and the steppe niggers and analtolians, everything between Epirus and the Indus valley is rightful Greek clay
>>251547>rightful Greek clay>Greece as a concept didn't exist before the 19th CenturyStop the propaganda
>>251547ever heard about the right of conquest?
>>251629>Greece as a concept didn't exist before the 19th CenturyIt did though. Ancient Greeks were serious about differentiating between Greeks and barbarians. They also had panhellenic games where only Greeks could participate (until Romans ruined everything). They were very much aware of the concept of a Greek world and that the Greeks shared common mythology, language and traditions across many independent city-states.
>>251629THE GREEKS COULD RULE THE WORLD. ALEXANDER DID.
>>251043Okay but is it actually fun yet?
>>251547I never play as major powers since they are OP
as a first timer, do I play HoI4 or Darkest Hour?
>>251677KRDH is getting an update soon
>>251711You play War in the East
>>251657Alexander wasn't a Greek you smelly greasy redditor
>>251760any more buzzwords that you picked on r/the4channels you wanna use on me?
>>251843https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYkCi_0XQj0It's okay to be new, anon, just stop being a faggot
>>251547The main powers are dull as hell. In HOI4 you can steamroll everything as a major. The most fun nations to play as are small fleshed out ones like El Salvador and Greece.
>>251929Boy I sure do enjoy sitting on my thumbs, watching my three military factories churn out 50 rifles and 7 artillery pieces per year while Germany singlehandedly takes on the Allies and captures Moscow by early 1940. Such engaging and fun gameplay
>>251933>I like to self-insert as a country in a video game modification so I can pretend that my actions impact the world around me in its entirety instead of being happy with small yet meaningful objectivesStop being autistic.
>>251941Very ironic post
>>251929Just play EaW, it has actually engaging gameplay no matter the nation(usually at least one path is fun)
>>251629This is your brain on Turk.
>>251547alexander never expanded into arabian peninscula
>>251692No. And it never will be.
>>251043Update is retarded, most arabs werent nationalistic but religious they would never revolt like this, also the palestine nation is retarded, its like britain taking over alsace lorain after ww1 its retarded
>>252356bro this is literal fiction no need to get upset that it doesnt tailor to your autism
>>252370They take out all the fun parts of the mod for realism sake, yet they dont bother to even read a wiki page of ww1
>>252374because this is literally a diffrent ww1 wtf
>>252374That's why I stick to Kaiserredux personally. Playing as a Klan led America with grand wizard George Lincoln Rockwell. Total fucking meme since he hated the Klan, but I think it's funny.
>>252375It goes beyond logic>Win war>Force ally that fought for you and can help you in the future to give up territoryKaiserreich is praised for being realistic, but each update brings it closer to normal timeline then anything
>>252396You first, roach
>>252375It not making sense from our historic PoV is one thing, it not making sense from the in-universe PoV another
>>252425Exactly what i meant
>>252420Trying to make it overly realistic is pointless imo, because having Germany win the war while abandoning unrestricted submarine warfare to avoid American intervention would be next to impossible, not to mention pointless. Wilson was a very interventionist president, the Lusitania sinking was sort of like the archduke getting shot: it was the catalyst, not the cause.
>>252446Does Wilson even get elected in the KR verse?
>>252446It's less about realism and more about internal consistency. Why would Germany force an ally that promises security and stability in a region they cannot effectively administer themselves to give up control over said region?
>>252450I think he was as a matter of fact, but Congress stymied his efforts to become more actively involved in the war, for some reason. Either that, or he never became president and I don't remember the backstory. His successor was McAdoo, I think?
>>252456Well, in their defense, Wilhelm and his administrators never were ones for realpolitik, unlike Bismarck. The war truly began in earnest because Austria got tired of waiting for Wilhelm to outright back their claims to invade Serbia, because he was out yachting with his family during the crisis and actively ignored all attempts to contact him.
>>252511Still, they wont fuck over a ally like that, during the boxer rebelion the german emperor asked the caliph if he could issue a fatwa to not fight them, the hui standed down, i dont think they want to give away that power
>>252617Also fair. To be honest the one weird, illogical event that pisses me off is Kornilov succeeding in the Ice March during Red October. The Ice March was doomed to fail from the get go, and was debatably an attempt to purposefully kill Kornilov by Kolchak and Wrangel. The White generals hated each other almost as much as they did the Reds.
>>252691To be honest a doomed maneuver that was probably an attempt to kill a rival succeeding is on-brand for the Whites.Though that's kind of a problem of KR in general, like how their outline for Germany winning WW1 last I checked was attritional warfare into the 20s rather than something more restrained.
>>252754>like how their outline for Germany winning WW1 last I checked was attritional warfare into the 20s rather than something more restrained.With the blockade broken, no US to reinforce the Western Front and Ukraine secured that's not that unbelievable. The Royal Navy just abandoning the blockade because of the second Battle of Jutland on the other hand...
>meanwhile in Kaiserreich>devs want to keep Napoleon path for France a secret>they tell plebbitor mods to crack down on the subplebbit and delete posts>an overzealous plebbitor janny who does it for free takes this as permission to ban users spreading info on how to do the path>plebbit revolts and begin burning the place down>KR dev team panick in discord and put out a message which saves themselves but puts the blame implicitly on the plebbit mod>banned Kaiserredux fans and Kaiserreich tranny divide heightens the tensionIt's like I'm on Livejournal in 2006.
>>253070It's funny how the KR devs froth at Kaiserredux
>>251657HE TOOK A GREAT ARMY TO THE FAR INDUS, THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT TO CONQUER, THE WORLD WAS HIS
>>253070>>253085I honestly don't get why they have so much vitriol for Redux. Should've just let me keep Genghis Ungern-Sternberg, instead of sperging out and removing fun content.
How do i win as the liberals with the ottomans? Everyone leaves the coalition in 38 anyway
Is there a DH version
>>253804to them playing as the us to create a ku klux klan state means you must be a fascist symphatiser irl
>playing as Germany in Kaiserredux>get the event to invite the Don Kuban Union into the Reichspakt to ward of Russia>prepare for a blitz on Moscow through White Ruthenia>suddenly DKU just ceases to exist because apparently the Russians can just annex them through event, making my involvement completely pointless
>>257614>playing ShitreduxxAnon thats your problem
>>252356>They would never revolt like this>They literally didOkay
Give me countries with a decent NatPop route. We are doing ww2.2
>>258095Russia-SavinkovItaly- either Italian Republic and Balbo for Mussolini style or Two Sicilies for more integralist styleArgentina- Carles is fun and can kill everyone in south americaJapan- they are ok but very little challenge If you want a hard challenge go Quisling Norway. You have no allies and have to fight Sweden, Finland and Britain to from Greater Norway. Its a challenge, thats for sure.
>>258095>Romania>El Salvador >United Baltic Duchy>Mittle Afrika (if you can handle it)
>>258116>>258113>>258111Based, cheers team.I didn't know Mittelafrika had much going on. Also keen to try out Norway.
>>258124Mittel Afrika has the single hardest path in the game. Goering's Wild Ride in the heart of darkness is considered by many to be almost impossible to win.
>>258095Apart from the most popular ones like Russia or Pelley's America, for some lesser known ones I'd recommend Brazil, Mexico, the Shandong Clique, Poland, and if you're willing to save scum a bit, even Switzerland has a neat natpop route.
>>252356>most arabs werent nationalistic but religious they would never revolt like thisExcept that's what they did in real life as well.Never seen Lawrence of Arabia?
>>262182what a fucking retard, the ''arabs'' were from the hasmemite clan not from syria iraq or khuzestan. It's saying that the spartakus revolt in germany was the jewish war of independance
>>258062t. Cuckreich dev
>>252025>EaW>>>/mlp/back to your containment board
>>251043I know about the standard OHF path, and the 'Sublime Federation' path, are there any other paths?
>>257614Kaiserredux has a lot of poorly thought out retarded shit like that, as much as I enjoy having it installed.>randomly changed flags and cosmetic tags for absolutely no reason that make zero sense and break the game so that socialist Argentina is just called Patagonia and the French Republic is always just called National France etc.>content-less AOG in China that randomly declares war on Qing>barely any event triggers so that silly shit like what you describe happens>Mongol meme path is back but for some reason they made them massively OP so that Russia sometimes gets stuck in a 4 year war with them>entire nations getting stuck on their focus trees like New England never doing anything>nonsensical additions like German Malta and Crete tags without content just becauseThey really need to spend a month just bugfixing the shit out of it and removing some of the more egregious dumb shit they added. It should be a giant content mod, not 'everything should be changed for the sake of it because fuck the KR devs' mod
>>262770No, anon, Kaiserreich is the reddit mod
>>262658Miletary junta under fevzi pasa, dont reform the security, let the liberals lose in the elections for arslans conservative islamist caliphate of old
>>251043is it out for Darkest Hour or only for Goi4?
Best path for France.
>>263065Fuck PetainNapoleon and Darlan are the true saviours of France.
>>263070>Napoleon>Thinking an absolute monarchy can function in the 20th century>Darlan>Thinking a fucking freemason could save FranceOnly the Revolution Nationale can wash away the blight of syndicalism. Maurras's autistic fantasies and the continuation of the Third Republic are not welcome. De la Rocque gets a passing grade.
what the fuck
>>263144The whole cairo pact and arab uprisings are already retarded, this is just retarded
>>263065There are several ways to get him. One is beating Mordaq in the influence miniame, the second is him getting a letter from the Redressment during the protests, and a third apparently. I heard one has his Military portrait as the leader instead of him in a suit.
>>251547This shit makes me so fucking annoyed. They need to update Germany, Russia, France, Britain etc. You know, the nations people want to fucking play in a WW2 game.
>>263328Shut up and play Guatemala
>>263144I'm honestly getting real fucking tired of the pop culture references everywhere, can't stand it anymore
>>263233I don't know about the other paths, but when you win the influence minigame against Mordacq, pétain's portrait changes from him in a suit to him in his Marshal uniform. I think it's a really nice touch, symbolizing the transition from a military junta claiming to be a temporary measure to protect the Republic, to a civilian regime being its own thing, the French State, but using the military glory of its head of state as the source of its legitimacy.Early game Pétain is a military ruler disguised as a civilian, French State Pétain is a civilian disguised as a military ruler.
>>251547>>263328You guys realize they are literally reworking every single major except Canada right now.
>>263817I'll believe it when they release it
>>258113LE LITA SAFTIIIIIIIIIIIITA
>>263817They said they are reworking germanysince day 1 and all we got ate the minomum number of fixes e.g. when fuel was added to basegame.I just want to play the Kaiser in Kaiserreich with some good content, dammit!
>>264099Yeah I won’t lie its taking a while but they are reworking like half the world. I mean to be honest they probably should do another “China” where they all come together and just work on one thing. Like right now here are stuff they are reworkingGermanyFranceUnion of BritainAustriaRussiaEastern EuropeBalticsSpainPhilippinesIndiaAnd probably America and Japan. They really should get rid of their decentralized modding structure because right they are probably overwhelmed.
>>264133Didn't Russia get a rework fairly "recently"?
>>264178No, those were “minireworks” to help keep them playable before the actual big one.
Anyone know of a mod that just deletes South America in Kaiserreich? South America usually has very little to no impact on the 2nd weltkreig and trying to find ways to better performance.>>251747>single player onlyWhy tf would I pay $80 to *only* get to fight against the AI? $110 with the two dlcs...
>>263065Mordacq as Paternal Autocrat military junta leader in France is the best path. Democracy cannot return until the left has been exterminated.
>>265503Is that a secret path? Mordaq is auth dem and he plans to restore democracy, although I heard he can permanently take over.
>>265517I don't think it's a secret. The tree changes when retake mainland France and you get a choice to either restore democracy under a new Fifth Republic led by the conservatives or to create a transitional military government on the right hand side of the tree. He's basically a benevolent dictator holding the reins of power temporarily.
stopped playing when they removed Mongolia due to not being "realistic"neither is Germany winning the war or Syndicalism having support outside of discord neckbeard trannies, but here we are
>>265756>Mongolia isn't realistic>but somehow Britain just falling to a Socialist revolution isRealism isthe most pathetic excuse for this shit
>>265542What do you think the next update is
>>267313>What do you think the next update isLikely Spain or the remaining Baltic states.
>>265756>they removed Mongoliabut that's wrong, you fucking retard
>>263074Isn't the new path for Napoleon not an absolute monarchy but a "Prussian constitutionalism" style like Napoleon III? Honestly it's probably best for the twentieth century considering 2nd French empire was best when it was using diplomacy. Not like there would be a third great war for him to get captured in.
>>267934Yes but the Orleanist monarchy is absolutists
>>265756>removed mongolia I swear that Panzer goes on this board and shittalks Kaiserreich, because there is always one guy that just makes complete bullshit about KR up.
>>267436>>270565Shut up devs, you removed all expansion paths for them past beating the Ma clique and make it so 80% of the time they flip Socialist.
>>270664>you removed all expansion paths for them past beating the Ma cliqueAnother blatant lie. Mongolia always attacks Qing after beating Ma. Do you get payed to do this or are you doing it for free?
>>270664Fake and gay.
>Mongolia can't go full genghis anymoreShit tranny Devs
>>251043poland needs new focus tree. also play with moereich
>>275805I thought Poland got updated already?
>>275805MR also has the best discord server. You should come over and say hi, anon.
>not even one ME path that is anti-islamic>not even a socialist one
>>276631Sorry anon, but Ba'athism is too problematic nowadays
Post artworksplease, I lost all the pictures I had
>>277265Most of KR's art is pretty cringe though
>>263512Especially when they don't even relate in the slightest
>>251043>the brand new Ottoman reworkSublime!
So I puppeted half of Europe as Russia and got an event about a cold war against the 3rd internationale. Does this lead to more events and an option to declare war later? Because I have nothing to do at the moment.
