>>2296>then Ostalgie is the ultimate wet dream >where you can save the USSR
you can not, no matte how you play it>the socialist block
which is very hard to do and you there are chances you may lose Poland, Hungary and Romania along the way, which puts an even more severe dent in you economy>win in Afghanistan
you either use special agents and turn it reformist or convince the entire Warsaw Pact and turn is socialist. It is very expensive and the WP option is only effective as long as you keep them all in the actual bloc. All for little reward in the end, since all you get is a contract, which is nice to have, but considering the effort, too little. But then again, whatever keeps the SocCamp stable.>organize coup d'etats acrosss the world
You turn Algeria and Nepal reformist, Ethiopia socialist and Somalia nothing at all to gain exclusive access to their resources
You meddle in Laos (I never got this, what did that guy do to you) and Ireland after you researched the third (out of three) security tech, with severe diplomatic cost.
And through events Yemen and Iraq (or not assuming you followed the chains of event) and Romania if you are not Romania (fuck Chao).
Sri Lanka too, but aside from a beautiful dot, you get nothing.
Oh and you can assassinate Deng, but that was by popular demand. But aside from China all these countries were kinda instable to begin with.>and be a major game changer in foreign elections while playing for fucking Albania or Bulgaria
Japan (with pre-investment), Greece, India, Nicaragua and South Korea (only as DPRK) and the reformist turned GDR. The three in the middle were rather close cases irl, but then again you have very limited options here as well. And then again no matter which of the 10 available countries you pick, you will never be able to prevent a nationalist victory in Yugoslavia and save the country. Where the devs actually goofed is Albania helping out Milosevic. Specifically if you play a benevolent Albania, that guy is still an ass to you. >(!) just for two years (!!!)
The thing about Ostalgie is, it is really a game of survival. And you seek out help wherever you can. If everything remains the same, you just lose. Most of the time you have no money and no agents. So all the potential wonderous things you could do won't actually happen.
>Also, goodluck trying to survive for Kwasniewski and social democratic Poland without game exploits, it's legit impossible because of the sky rocketting westalgie.
If you are blue (socdem or lib), high Westalgie means jack. After all that is what Kwasniewski stand for (Euro-Transatlantist)
