bringing this back because the EU4 expansion for the middle east and persia came out. they added a fuck ton of new provinces to the region, so while my empire might not seem impressive at first glance, just remember that in the 1600 screenshot it has 2000 development

they made the mamluks super OP so I figured I'd see what I can do. I was able to form arabia within 85 years


and here it is, 70 years later. it now spans from sochi in the north and continuously down to mogadishu. benghazi to muscat (or, dhaka not continuously)


my goal is to get all of the institutions I can (all of them after printing press don't have a specific region they must spawn in) and I just got probably the hardest one, global trade. it only spawns in the node with the highest trade value (ie, ducats that stay and you collect). usually, this is easily just one of the three end nodes, genoa, venice or english channel because they get stuck and have to get collected there. after utter domination of india (I own 9/13 of the centres of trade) I was able to get a trade income of 85 ducats a month in Constantinople.



the mediterranean trade I control, 32.5 ducats of value a month from egypt, middle east and india. 18.6 from syria and persia.


I'm working towards sending the indian/indonesian trade through aleppo because genoa/spain is taking a large chunk of it from alexandria. they have no trade power at all in aleppo so I figure I can hit 200+ ducats a month from trade that way.

It's been 150 years and I did this, and I vastly underestimated just how much trade income you really can get.



I ended up having to conquer a whole bunch of asia just to maximize the potential of my trade routes





Not perfect still, Chinese goods would be better going overland via central asia in the future, rather than through Indonesia. I only have 50% control in the Yumen trade node right now so my final goal in Asia will probably be to conquer all the remaining SEA, China, Tibet and Central Asia to see if I can hit 2k trade income a month. My final goal of this campaign will be to fight Spain and unify Islam. 60 years to go.

Great Perm achievement run



Done on ironman + hard mode.

Requires playing as and starting as Perm, a Uralic nation that at the start of the game is a vassal of Muscovy. It requires owning all "arctic" regions, Russia, Urals, East & West Siberia, Scandinavia, Canada, Hudson Bay and Cascadia. You start out incredibly poor and isolated from anyone who can help. It took a few restarts before I could get the Commonwealth to support my independence (the -20 for hard mode means you have to wait until they rival Muscovy at minimum). After that, it took probably a century for me to get to the point Muscovy is at in 1444. It was a really long slog being dirt poor and weak, even though I culture shifted to Muscovite so I would at least have a large starting base. Commonwealth owned some Russian provinces so I had to backstab them early on. This backfired, I wasn't able to secure a different ally before they DOWed me and I had to fight a very costly 2v1 war that ended in a white peace. Eventually, I allied Bohemia until I backstabbed them again just because their army was garbage and I'd prefer 80 Brandenburgian units to 160 Bohemian ones. I was able to snake to cut off the Ottomans from having any land I needed, though I did end up fighting them (and winning) with Bohemia anyways. I had to fight Ming for some provinces in East Siberia. Spain, France and UK colonized in the North American provinces I needed. Pretty sure I fought the catholic defender of the faith at least 50 times.

This was the greatest game of EU4 I've ever played, imo. It had literally everything. The achievement forces you to go colonial. It forced me to fight literally every great power. It forced me to backstab allies and play diplomatically. It had me as an irrelevant backwater until 1680. I wasn't able to upgrade from a duchy in order to stay the government type that gives Russian bonuses (unless I formed Russia, invalidating the achievement).
