m8 I'm here to discuss EU4 not to hear some guy with his mum credit card.
yeah well you shouldn't go to war with france unless you have a substantial alliance because you're gonna get shafted the moment you land your troops in a port

Austria Portugal Scotland and couple of other smaller dukes and all that, Castile joined though they barely helped since they lost half of their men fighting Portugal and when they did finally come to assist me my army was well weakened with me fighting Austria and France though somehow I was able to beat those two fairly easily early in the war, however, they kept coming with soldiers again and again and my army was extremely weakened which left me to lose since they were able to get togeather with me trying my best to kill as many of their small stacks as I could.

Well yeah, I was a bit more of a noob when I played that since before that I only played Portugal and a little bit of the Ottomans.

Heres some early game tips:
Irish nations dont really affect you that much whether they are friends or foes. Dont depend on them to help you win wars.

France is /really/ strong at the start of the game compared to you. Dont try to win wars against them by yourself.

Austria usually is strong af and can help you keep the baguettes at bay. Ally them asap!

Get colonozing fairly quick to get the extra merchants, in my playtrough that was the main profit of the uk, had like 8 merchants and was making 200 gold with a 100 ship strong navy.


Hope this helps but you can google this too :D

So I'm currently in 1668 Or something along those lines and well I've done good and bad, I've colonized the front of America with the thirteen colonies owning most of it, I also colonized most of the south Africa with small portions of the east south Africa as well with a couple of islands east of Africa. Now with wars I've done mostly shit with me losing all of my french provinces due to France and Burgandy French Cunts, however, I'm currently at war with India with it being a standstill currently with me taking the southern island with the royal fleet blocking the filthy Indians.

Edit: Forgot to add this I've conquered all of Ireland and Scotland and formed Great Britain.

it's normal that france and burgundy is taking your mainland europe stuff but good job. Have you already taken orkney island (north of british island) because if norway is free, you can claim orkney and attack norway and possibly conquer all of scandinaviaaa but aside from that good job.

I would do that, however, my only allies are Norway and Sweden and other than that everyone either hates me or doesn't want to royal marriage or form an alliance despite me throwing money at them and Improving relation.
