How to play 1850 if Austria's neighbor

Fri Nov 09, 2018 3:53 am

Just a note to all. Many of you know this, I did not and several fellow players did not, if you are playing as Prussia, Sardinia/Piedmont, the Ottoman, France and even Russia - Austria is a beast. Do not make an alliance with her. She is so strong in the opening all other nations need to keep her controlled and limit her conquests.
Do not think of Austria in 1914, Austria 1850 is a potential terror of the world.
Later, post 1860, you can make alliances.

That's especially true with France, S-P and Prussia, as it might cripple future development in the cases of German and Italian unification.

Speaking of Austria and Italian unification. Just playing as Austria from 1850. I tried to erase S-P before Risorgimento kick in. Yet after taking all S--P provinces including Sardinia (hard naval invasions) there is still not that 5 points per turn to war score. So I can only claim 1-2 provinces in peace treaty. The question is: do great powers got that -5 points to war score if totally occupied or it only works vs. other minor countries (Saxony, Parma, Tuscany worked that way).

Can't speak of the numbers, but gaining warscore is a slow process overall. Gaining provinces is, too. You need to have a claim or high loyalty, afaik.
You might be seeing an eternal war with S-P.
Still after having all provinces inherited you might get scripted events fire, because the nation still exists for the game (government in exile, :fleb: )
So you might find yourself at war with France nonetheless in a few years.
