Thanks for calculation!
This is initial pace of the game. I think that in future it will be better, 3-4 turns per week or even 1 turn per day. Just warned that we have No deadline.
In any case, it's more better than playing against AI.

We try, almost none of us have played PON before.We want to introduce into the game the ability to provide loans to another country as well as the transfer of units, resources and territory (I know that they did this in other MP PON).Therefore, I would like to find players who know how to do such events and did them before.

While I have a bit of experience in such things, unfortunately I have no timeslots left. :pleure:

However, here is an advice:
the game has a lot of turns and if you want to see the end or at least make it into 1890's your greatest concern is to get the game going at all. It is not the game mechanics that you should be concerned of in the first months of your common journey but the group of players. Decisions ingame should be taking relations offgame into account.
Playing a long game means that there are very little decisions that are fatal gamewise, but a lot of decisions have the potential of collapse offgame.

Just saying. :papy: :)

Thank you, I understand what you're talking about.This campaign was launched by fans of ageod games from the Russian gaming forum Strategium.ru. Then we invited players from the TWC forum.
We have our own Russian-speaking campaign community.
All players communicate with each other through a chat in Slack (in English). There we try to conduct diplomatic correspondence in the style of the 19th century. To do this, we need to study the names and titles of many historical figures of that era. This is very exciting and informative. By creating separate private chats, we imitate secret negotiations and international conferences.

Europe is on the verge of a GREAT WAR !!! Image

Due to the complicated and confusing negotiations on the Eastern Crisis and due to the delay in the progress of some players, the game slowed down a bit, now there is an 18 turn.
Difficult diplomatic negotiations to end the aggression of Austria and Russia against Turkey continue, but at the same time, Russians and Austrians seize the Balkan territories of the Ottoman Empire, Prussia occupied Bavaria (the Austrian satellite), France concentrated its armies on the border with Austria , Britain threatens to declare war on Russia and destroy its merchant fleet .
And also China declared war on Japan (?!!)

And we continue to invite new players to join this crazy diplomatic-economic-military circus)

Now there is a 22nd turn, November 1850

Turkish negotiations with Russia and Austria were foiled and the British Empire was forced to declare war on Russia.A British-French defense treaty was also concluded.

Thus, 7 players are already involved in one way or another in a big war!

The entry into the war of France can be expected in January-February 1851

Inside British problems:
Excessive production of mechanical parts and the lack of demand for them in the world market forced the government to close almost their production.This in turn led to a reduction in demand for steel and the closure of steel production, which in turn caused a drop in demand for iron and the cessation of its import from Belgium friendly to us.Also closed two-thirds of the production of dyes in India. To save state money, two of the three shipyards were closed.
Here is the Great Depression of the 19th century .Can a big war help solve these economic problems, or finally ruin a country?

Our plan to attract the maximum number of players begins to be beneficial. As soon as we lost the player for Portugal, we immediately found a new player, represented by an experienced player Lordlay1 .Also, we should have a new player for Brazil Empire.

Events in the game: a rash attack by Russian cruisers against a merchant ship in a trading zone off the coast of North America led to important consequences. The hype inflated by the British press about the threat of all merchant shipping near North America and the appeal to the US government led the United States to sharply condemn this attack , about the inadmissibility of similar later and early patrols off the coast of North and South America.The actions of the Russians were also condemned by the new government of Portugal. This is a small but important victory for British diplomacy.
Only Spain continues to pursue a neutral, and sometimes not British-friendly policy.

In January 1851, the Western European coalition presented Austria and Russia with the latest ultimatum. The immediate cessation of aggression against Turkey and a return to the status quo.Otherwise, the declaration of war by all coalition countries.Russia at once, and Austria, having thought a little, rejected this ultimatum.The great European war became inevitable.
