Any Map Gamers here?




This is a reminder that using "Kebab" and "Remove kebab" when referring to the Ottomans and/or Muslims in general is STRICTLY forbidden.

There has been a recent up-tick in usage of these terms so I am making sure that everyone is very, very aware of Paradox's stance.

Using these terms is considered racism, and so is against the Terms of Service and can result in infractions.

To my knowledge I currently own all but the free Yuletide DLC songs for mapgames since EU3 (I might be missing some stuff from HoI3 since I don't keep up to date on it too hard).

there was a point when france was divided evenly between the Norse north and Umayyad Aquitaine. Those were some great wars. The Alpine emirate was all that survived, directly ruled by the caliph.

What are some of the harder to access ones and are they worth it?

We have a long running risk game at work in a back room where turns take place approximately whenever all involved have spare time. So far my Africa Strategy just isn't cutting it.

Darkest Hour is probably the best WW1+2 mapgame, but it has fairly micro-heavy mechanics

I've found Hearts of Iron to be the hardest to get into but I think it's because of my preference to learn something by just playing it rather than figuring out which things to just ignore in a game and the HoI series, especially 2's tech tree, can be overwhelming. I learned mapgames with CK1, then I learned Victoria 1, then I learned EU3 and I've yet to learn a Hearts of Iron game very well, which sucks since I want to do the Spanish Civil War campaign in it.

It's arguable but I would say, barring just asking a seasoned vet what the Way To Play It is (which I hate playing games if that's how you have to do it generally, especially single player ones) HoI has the most information you need to absorb up front and because of the span of time it covers it can often feel like there's not enough time to learn it or to justify sitting at the research screen even to read and decide which of the like 72 paths you could take when.

Not even getting into military composition and stuff.

Also HoI3 being extremely slow turned me off of it for a while. I had preordered the game and was epically excited to get into it and I fell asleep in my chair in 1936 with the game on max speed and woke up 5 hours later and the game had barely gotten into 1937 or something.

Your a child. People only refer to this genre in the context of Paradox-style games anyway. Get a grip dude. Oh boo hoo, if we can call it gay Marriage you might as well get married to a wolf. You sound like a moron. Grow up.
