    Fighting over the old world - An RPS EU4 Game

    RPS EU4 rules:

    - We play every week on thursdays, starting at 19:30 GMT.

    - If we can't play on a thursday, we play on the following monday at 19:30 GMT.

    - If 25% or more of the active players cannot play on any given date and say so ahead of time in this thread, we cancel that session.

    - If someone cannot attend a session, noone is allowed to take any provinces of that nation in a war and should try to go for a white peace if attacked by the AI. If a person cannot attend for two consecutive session they are fair game though (but don't be an ass).

    - France, England, Castille, and Muscovy are considered OP and are banned.

    - The save will be available for downloading prior to the game (the person hosting should post a link in this thread at least one hour before start, if it's not here in time: please remind the host).

    - As always, be excellent to each other.

    Victory conditions: 100 years (approximately) before the end date we make a note of everyone's points and in the end we calculate the difference between those points and total points. The five people with highest modified scores are decreed awesome as fuck and gets to pick nations first for the next multiplayer game (in order of highest score). However, they have an extended banned list including (in addition to the ones above): Burgundy, Denmark, Austria, Ottomans, Ming, Portugal, the Mamluks, and the Timurids.

    If you want to join, you can pick any country apart from the ones above and the ones already chosen, in the list below.

    And here's what I'm interested in (I wanted to separate it from the first "rules" post).

    I want to play as Burgandy. It's an interesting location and a country with some cool choices (should I form the Netherlands or not), and I haven't played as them yet. Also, it's always fun to pick on France and England.

    I wanna play as Scotland (oddly enough...). What about alliances between all human players to fuck over the AI, especially taking out the OP AI nations militarily, and then having a free for all. We could still use diplomatic and trade means to put the boot into each other.

    That's pretty much my plan. If I end up as Burgundy and you as Scotland I want an alliance to crush England. Also France (with the help of Aragon if someone picks them).

    Damn you Laldy, I wanted Scotland! I suppose I'll go for Aragon, they look like an interesting choice.

    Set up a Steam group and invited everyone who expressed an interest in playing together (plus friend invites to those not already on my friend list.)

    Look, we'll decide a method for deciding who gets Scotland, I'd take Portugal as a second choice.

    Are we playing with the new dlc? I have it and can host, so we could play with a random new world.

    You can use the DLC if someone hosts that has it.

    Also, before you go and create groups, next time check if there isnt already an RPS player group for EU4 ;D

    I'd like to play Portugal, but if you don't get Scotland, Laldy, I'll take Aragon.

    Playing one of the Irish nations might be problematic since they are all one province minors. But if you feel confident about that there might be some awesome rivalry between you and Scotland over the isles. :P

    I like the idea of random new world as well. I should be able to host as well if need be (have only done it with four players as of yet, but that has worked fine).

    (also, didn't receive any friends requests/group invites...)

    my mistake. I might have invited a non Rock Planet Shotgun person in, but he is quite nice.

    actually, thats the reason I want to: I know the feeling from playing Ck2.
