Maps, ok. First North America:
Fully colonised, we’re just waiting for the prestige events from Nationalism and Imperialism – at least that’s why I’m waiting. Once that hits, there’s a partition plan – I get most of the land, Varyar gets most of the prestige.
Varyar’s in no hurry here, obviously.
Probably being delayed by life-rating issues?
Split between Georgia and Malacca. Japan was there before, but seems to have been persuaded to go elsewhere.
So that’s the colonisation, now the war! Here’s Europe:
Notice the Norwegian landings along the Baltic coast of Finland, where I’m rapidly defeating most of the Finnish regular army. A closer look at some of the previous fighting:
So, three Norwegian divisions, twenty Finnish divisions; a month later:
50% Finnish casualties, 10% Norwegian casualties, while outnumbered 6 to 1! It’s no joke to fight in Norway in winter! Then, too, mountain/forest provinces with level-2 forts, troops with dug-in level of 60, and heavy shore bombardments; and I also have much superior army techs. In short, just about everything that possibly can go wrong for the Finns, has indeed gone wrong, and the Ynglinga Hird is showing them the meaning of modern war. The agreed-upon peace, however, is lenient so that I can go after China; only the cession of Mariehamn – the islands between Sweden and Finland.
Finally, the fighting front in China:
The stacks vary in size between 10 and 20 divisions. The Georgian attack seems to have bogged down, but the French are still gathering steam with little to oppose them.
