Unlike Ulm, Athens and some North American tribal nations, Ryukyu is not a hard country to play with. Well, unless you are going for the world conquest, it is hard for any nations. This is my 2nd attempt to play the Ryukyu. As long as you don’t get to be destroyed by Japan, you are fine as no one can have claim on you except for Japan. Also, because you are weak and small, no one wants to be friend with you, so very little chance to get involved in early game. It can be a good thing when saving up money for colonization in Philippines, which is my plan.
Step 1: get a good son (anything better than that 1/1/1)
Step 2: colonize Philippines and Moluccas, take Luwu, Kutai, and whatever is there for you. DON’T CHOOSE TAIWAN UNLESS YOU WANT MING TO CLAIM IT!!! I suggest exploration rather than expansion because I chose expansion it is too slow, and save space for Humanity or Administration Idea Group.
Meanwhile in Europe…. a militaristic pope appeared
Step 3: Westernize in South America. After having contacts with Europeans and westernize, strongly suggest to move collecting node to Malacca and take Australia.
Scandinavia, you are what you conquer
Not all 13 colonies are USA
Pasai, that must hurt a lot
And all y’all motherf**ker need cathedrals
Well, Catalonia succeeded
You always can win back your ex-colony by marrying them
Yue, why you betray your teammate like this?
That’s even better
Why don’t these poor nations just buy more money?
