Nippon, Banzai!

Now in possession of most of Africa and a naval budget to rival GB. I do feel like you should have liberated finland from the ruskies at the end though :p

On hindsight, I could have nabbed Finland and used it as a staging base to blockade Germany. But the game had begun to give me memory wraparound errors (because I was getting near 1950) so I said **** it.

I voted for ze germans (because of cause I did). The flavour to go for would be "what if Bismarck managed to groom an actually competent successor".

Hmmmmmmmm.  :drevil:

I voted for Russia! It seems like a silly thing to imagine them with a massive fleet to be afraid of, so I like it. Flavor: C&C Red Alert Soviets.

Thank you Enioch fro the masterful and entertaining write-up of your game. No capship or Kan-Cole fan would read this and come away with tears (of joy) unshed. Well done.

thank you very much for an awesome thread/story.

I've voted British/German, for the German's The E's thesis is fascinating (especially having just read a book about the origins/causes of WW1), for the British how about a campaign to bring their long lost colony to heel?  :drevil:

Thanks again for the great and enteraining story based on what is such a dry game - masterfully combined with the kancolle pics and all the funny bits.

I Voted for Germans and Russians cause I can imagine both of them being quite funny in this format (Vodka destilleries!!!). Unless Enioch chooses to do a more serious narrative which would be still quite interesting considering the major changes/revolutions which happened in both countries during the time-frame the game covers. I wonder what else might happen instead :)

Great thread, thanks (Dr. yet?) Enioch.

Voted for Austria-Hungary because the thought of the KuK-Navy taking on the world from Triest an Pula would be hilarious.

Alternatively voted Baguettes.

In both cases the theme would mostly involve twirling moustaches and fine dining.

Holy crap, 16 voters already. :eek2:

Looks like I'll need to review my modern German History for obscure yet influential historical figures.

Great thread, thanks (Dr. yet?) Enioch.

Not yet. Which is why I'm starting this in early April at the earliest.

Seconded :D
I also took Austria, because I guess that would be quite a challenge plus it would offer a similar approach to Japan with it's diverse culture base.

This has definitely been one of the better LPs here!

I'd vote for Russkies, but my JavaScript is botched and does not register the votes. Alternate Spaghettis - just because.

Can't have enough of that Perverts Pervenets class  :lol:

Somehow I think that the British numbers will still rule despite their hidden faults trait (though that could be amusing), while Russian loss of productivity trait is likely a bigger problem, i.e. Fun. Hence also Italy.  :D

Noted.  ;)

Also, OMG, you guys are being so nice. It's not like I enjoyed it b-bakas.

Also also, I guess we've found the soundtrack for round 2

So, in order to keep myself from going completely ga-ga, I've started the German campaign during my precious few moments of free time.

Major spoilers below.

Seriously, I've warned you.

Spoiler:



One thing I've noted is that Germany plays....differently. Holy crap, is that 'Technology Leader' perk good.  :drevil:

Yeah, I expected Germany to win this poll straight out of the gate, since you said they're the hardest faction earlier on.

Let the games begin... :pimp:

On hindsight, Russia might be harder because nerfed tech.

But with Germany you've got the Brits specifically gunning for you. With all that this entails.  :shaking:

Don't the Brits usually build laughably armoured BCs with 6 inch belt armour? You'll be fiiiiiiiine.
