Rekindling the Flame3: Expanding into Iran and Iraq

After the Armenian rebels succeed from Qara Qoyunlu, I used my “accidental manslaughter” causi belli to subjugate Armenia. Not much later after this, the Golden Hordes got kicked out of the steppes and have to take refuge in Caucasia. With all of those lost cores, it will be a great march once I formed Persia and reconquer its cores.

Fighting hordes is be getting easier as time pass, the hordes are getting slower in technology and getting smaller and smaller by size. Eventually, Qara Qoyunlu and Timurids can never recover from the wars they lost against Sassanid.

Be my subject

20161214142948_1

You will thank me many years later, Great Horde

20161214150133_1

I have feed myself first before feeding these vassals

20161214153156_1

Hey Crimea, I think your messenger was a bit slow

20161214153401_1

White peace? Sure

20161214153517_1

Eventually, Crimea declared war on me with its horde allies and vassals

20161214163449_1

Glad the mountain terrains and the attriction worked out and abled to peace out after 4 years. And those Persians can’t wait to tear me down

20161214165858_1

QQ is weak but has strong allies, let’s do it, why not 

20161214210636_1

This war lasted for more than three years and AQ still not satisfy with the result. I have to say AI don’t know when to negotiate in this build

20161214213036_1

Oh… you just want to eat more…

20161215133837_1

More development raising!

20161215141619_1

Just wanted to feed Armenia before annexing it

20161215144132_1

Except for the Great Horde, everyone got treats

20161215151854_1

The two Shirvan provinces are like my Beijing and Nanjing, both of them the have 30+ developments individually

20161215154007_1

Not only Timurids is being unstable, my new ally Bukhara and me together are stronger than Timurid’s alliances

20161215155241_1

Kazan hit Bukhara quite hard in the north and it is not a good idea for me to fight hordes at that moment. So for everyone’s sake… peace out

20161215185406_1

Let’s have a second attempt, with Moscuvy fight Kazan and I take the unrecovered Timurids

20161215190056_1

Good, good, let the timurid deal with those war exhaustion

20161215191122_1

Seemed like I am feeding the devil, but I still need to please it

20161215191244_1

Thanks, my vassals

20161215192829_1

Why not, let Bukhara join, I need manpower anyway

20161217135951_1

QQ is weak enough that I can defeat it in flat terrains

20161217140045_1

It can’t even support it’s castles anymore

20161217140448_1

Almost done with QQ

20161217142905_1

First step of feeding my march

20161217143046_1

Too bad I chose someone else to rival after eclipsed QQ!

20161217145934_1

Sure, I will do Moscovy a favor, but it didn’t give Great Horde’s cores back

20161217151916_1

Such as greedly ally

20161217205228_1

Alright, back to continue wrecking the Timurids, oh, Oman, your need ally

20161217205552_1

Khiva popped out from Bukhara, seemed like I can keep the alliance with Bukhara for a little longer

20161217213119_1

Where should I raise development this time, somewhere near Baghdad perhaps?

20161217213153_1

Oops, maybe I took a bit too much from the Timurids

20161217224720_1

Oh look at this little Khiva, ready to be cored?

20161217225447_1

AI rebels will never give up

20161218003007_1

Many years later, fought a war with Timurids. But bullying a bankrupted Timurids is just too easy, only the result is worthy to be shown
