I know that this has been done, but with the new content and articles I ask:

What faction will you be and what objective ranging from the short to the far future will you set.

Here's my plan and also GG.

Faction: Great Britain.

Plan: Seek an alliance with the Dutch and Prussians to defeat the French. Then after we break France down, if possible ask the Dutch and Russians to attack Sweden.

That's my European sphere. But what will be your plan?

General Rawlinson- This is most unsatisfactory. Where are the Sherwood Foresters? Where are the East Lancashires on the right?

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

My original plan was thus:

1) Storm the Baltic ASAP - good terrain for a guerrilla war and Highland regiments (which have to be in it, seeing as the British Empire wouldn't have had a front line for many battles without them)
2) Make an alliance with Russia
3) Swing north and take Iceland (it had better be in the game) and then Greenland
4) Betray Russia, and carve a path to the Caucasus
5) Sweep down into Persia
6) Invade India
7) Sip Talisker's like a douche

I will most likely play as my great ancestors nation, Great Britain. I will first set up a fortified command of my empire. Then engage in diplomacy, mapping out some of the known world. Knowing where I stand, I will ally my self with several neighboring nations. If any nearby nations/kingdoms are real small, I will conquer them first. Then I will begin a campaign to wipe out a nation of my choosing. I really don't know yet of course what I'll do, but this seems like a good plan to me.

Any good, therefore, that I can do ,
or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature,
let me do it now ; Let me not defer or neglect it ,
for I shall not pass this way again."

I will continue in my policy from past games. Namely trying to be cool with everybody until it is clear that they are going to attack. Then crush them brutally and rapidly.

Sir, I have not yet begun to defile myself.
Swallow my pride? No thank you, Im too full of myself.
I bring you nothing but love and a shopping bag full of sexual depravity.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

Spain:

Maintain a brutal and repressive grip on the Americas, but wisely build up my economy, navy, and army until I realize my amazing territory's potential. Then, I reap the benefits of developing my empire, build up an army that's larger and technologically superior, then with better generalship take out the French by land, reassert my Spanish Empire over the Dutch, crush British naval power, and take out the Germans last. I'll let the Ottomans rot as a weak empire as long as they need to and I'll set my focus first on Britain before I advance against Russia - a mistake Napoleon and Hitler definitely both made, IMO.

As Britain, Do a campaign of ethnic cleansing on the French, then fear the zombie apocalypse. Once Z-Day has happened, if my empire still exists then I will go to Italy to get a new boot, and then conquer the rest of the world. Simple.

Prussia:

Annex or conquer all surrounding German states, including Anschluss with Austria (by force if necessary) to create Großdeutschland. Then ferment revolt to dispose of the monarchy and create a great German republic. After that, play it by ear, perhaps building up my navy and expanding my power across the globe or in Europe, building up unrivaled might and crushing any who trifle with me (I'm looking at you, Poland).

As Great Britain:

The short term goal is to make sure that my economic base is in good working order and can sustain my military expansion later in the campaign

The mid-term goal is to have my navy in full strength so that I can defend the home base and get as many troops abroad as possible within the turns needed to conquer and/or defend territories

The long term goal is to destroy France, take as much of the Americas as are possible to take, have a lock on India and to dominate Europe

As Prussia or Austria:

The short term goal is basically the same as above

The mid-term goal is more land-based

The long term goal is focused instead on expanding and defending a European empire at the expense of France, the Scandinavians, the Ottoman Turks and the Russians

As the United States:

Having rebelled, the short term goal is to consolidate my territory in North America while fending off the British armies and navy

The mid-term goal will be to take over as much of North America as possible while also sending out navies, armies and agents to size up potential targets overseas

The long term goal will be to become the dominant power of the western hemisphere at the expense of the Spanish and a serious pain in the arse for everyone else in Europe and elsewhere

As Russia

1.Short Term- Establish a well defended Nation, I am surrounded by enemies so I have to make sure I have a reliable army

2.Medium Term- Take Over Prussia and the Polish, then stay at good terms with the Turks, maybe even an alliance if I need it, take over the Danes and Swedes After I am a hyperpower I will go intoa revolution to overthrow the Tsar once my Republic begins I then move West

3.Long Term- Betray the Turkas and mow them down, then crush all of India, take over Western Europe and if America exists Envelop into a massive war.

Whats everyone got against Russia??

Short Term: decide whether to purchase the Collectors Edition with extra units or download off steam. Hopefully download collectors off steam!

Mid Term: charge and punch through the front line of a Wife unit and flank the Kids for a clean victory and be rewarded with peace and quiet while I acquire an understanding of my new toy.

Long Term: this is meant to be the most moddable yet, so hopefully that means a noob like me can tinker with it and create my own maps and campaigns. I think its about time the history of New Holland be rewritten with a bit of violence.

I'll probably be the Dutch in my first campaign (as they're the closest to my country, Belgium). Or perhaps France.

My short term objective is to accumulate enough gold to purchase a new computer actually capable of playing the game.

Unfortunately, it is likely this will actually be a long term objective.
