I don't think we really need those tidbits about Crusader Kings I and any game that has a current sequel out. Plus no one remembers or cares about MM at this point.

Maybe keep Darkest Hour for now since people still play Kaiserreich

How is March of the Eagles in single-player, actually? I've been wondering if I should maybe pick it up during a sale or something.

If you like the military aspect of Pdox games and nothing else, it's the game for you.

Yeah, manual save and reload is the only way. In fact, the only way to actually avoid the civil war is to elect Curtis, negotiate with Reed and assassinate Long - with any other option, the civil war will kick off, and if you elected either Long or Reed, they will with 100% accuracy get kicked out by MacArthur.

And this makes the whole thing sound so very boring.

If the 3D graphics in our games is causing your computer to chug, you probably are on Windows 95, was my point. If not, HOI4 will not perform better with counters.

Good to know I shouldn't buy HoI4 then.

EDIT: Actually, I shouldn't. Not even joking. I hate the military aspect of all Paradox games. I can't even stand March of the Eagles, why would I try to play another pdox game centered around warfare?

It's kind of tricky to figure that sort of thing out because first you have to decide what the player represents in Victoria. Are you the old world monarchies desperately trying to hold on to power in a world that's evolving beyond them? Or are you the new world liberals trying to make your nation better regardless of "tradition". Part of the issue in Victoria 2 is that you're such an abstract figure that you kind of play both of them. The end result is that a lot of strategies revolve around intentionally allowing a rebellion to succeed because their form of government is more effective, even though from a gameplay perspective you're supposed to be fighting them.

You represent the spirit of the nation. Simple as that.

Hell, it's what people were promoting during that era.

The ethnic armies are a cool thing but unfortunately they're part of a revolt mechanic that doesn't reach its potential. Victoria could use a dose of CK2's revolt system, where revolts are more akin to states. A great Victoria revolt system would create armed factions, where your units and provinces have a loyalty based on their sentiment, ethnicity and religion. Instead of vomiting rebels everywhere, I'd like to see factions that can ally with each other or the government, e.g. The German government could align with the Freikorps against the Communists, the Russian government could work out a deal where some ethnic factions get to become independent if they help fight the Bolsheviks. Add in the ability for other great powers to sponsor factions and the ability to switch to a rebel faction to take over your own nation and you've turned a giant pain in the rear end into a compelling mechanic.



You could break it down into three types of rebellions: (I'll use the USA as an example)

1. Rebel troops - What we have now in Vicky II. They're just uppity groups from the population and don't have a real agenda. (Pro-Slavery rebels appear in the US)
2. Rebel states - Would be factions of government or ethnicities looking to break off and form their own nations (A state like Alabama breaks away)
3. Rebel nations - Would be rebellions involving previously conquered nations (The actual Confederate States of America attempts to rebel again)

It sounded better when I was first writing it but gently caress me if I'm just going to delete it.

Nations can only be in one faction.

So I take it that's just like in HoI 3 where you can only be in one faction (Commy, Demo, Nazi) but can have alliances with members of other factions, ie, Germany and Russia's Non-Aggression Pact.

You can have relations, like NAPs, with non-faction nations yes. But for the purposes of HoI4 alliance = faction. You Are not limited to the starting 3 factions either, if you want to make an Italian-Polish faction to fight Germany or something, you can do that (or at least try, the other nation might say no).

Now that's interesting. So if history went off the rails I could have like a US-Mexico faction to fight against Japan or stuff like that? Man, I might have to actually buy this when it comes out.

Maybe if Pdox's forums would actually let me see the Vicky II mod forums again maybe I'd check it out.

I have no clue as to why I can't access it. I used to be able to no problem.

Yeah, a two-way civil war is good for countries sized like Greece, but places like USSR and USA better be able to have multiple factions rising up, if only because they have the higher chance of breaking apart due to their size.
