    Post Your Heart of Darkness Empire!

    The game's coming out tomorrow, so I decided I might as well start this thread. Beta players can post in here today, if they want.

    Happy Empire building!

    You lucky ducklings get to play HoD now, I'm still waiting for steam to ship it out (not that I'm complaining, I've got studying to do anyways! XD)

    I'll make sure to post my supreme empire when I get a hold of it

    Was going well until the Ottomans got sphered by France. Westernised before 1860 by conquering my rivals. Got two reforms off conquering Hedjaz twice since the Ottomans intervened the first time and made me release them.

    I played solid game as Japan starting from the 1861 date...

    I tried to recreate the historical borders of the Japan empire as close as possible, but Great Britain got both Port Arthur and Taiwan. Since they were permenantly allied with Russia for the entire game, I did not want to fight them. Actually, not a single great power ever wants to ally with me so it is a moot point. Germany was doing pretty awesome in this game, but they had no colonies.



    I even conquered some south Asia territory for oil, but I was late to the colonizing game and was always at infamy limit so I could really conquer much other than China. Funny thing was Russia would attack China and then the UK so I'd invade while they were both involved and gobble up swaths of territory. Pretty easy actually.



    Here is the world map for 1919 if you are interested. I'm not sure if I am going to play out to 1936 since no one seems interested in fighting a great war anymore.

    After getting soundly beaten by the USA as Mexico as I re-learned how to play Vicky 2, I decided to try out Australia (released day one from the UK). Here's the state of the world in 1919. There have been two Great Wars, one long one in the 1890s that saw the USA lose quite badly (they were knocked out of the GP spots for a while) and a short war that ended before I could witness my new dreadnoughts in action

    Well it's all prestige (and they are secondary in that moment) so it's probably just be a massive focus on culture tech and some lucky events

    I sphered Yemen before I found out the weird way From Arabia works. I freed Irag from the turks and became a Great Power during the war.

    There was a crisis over greek territory. A year later the Ottomans declared war to take the land back and their ally Prussia ended up annexing the peleponese and then released it as the Ionian islands.

    They didn't, you need a 2nd province to actually become a GP. But in score they chased the 8th GP.

    That U.S. makes me cringe......
    It has been said that history repeats itself.

    “The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.” ~ Teddy Roosevelt
    “A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.” ~ Robert Heinlein
    “I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
    “What is history? An echo of the past in the future; a reflex from the future on the past” ~ Victor Hugo
    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana
    “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” ~ Karl Marx
    “And history with all her volumes vast, Hath but one page.” ~ Lord Byron
    Goodbye East vs West. You're not forgotten!
    The glow! Aaah! The wonderful glow! Can you not see it, General?
