We have a HoI4 thread but why not just have a Grand Strategy general thread? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people here who play the other grand stratgy games/think hoi4 is too dumbed down shit. Plus /gsg/ on 4chan is infected with /pol/yps and I really want an alternative place to discuss the games. So what's everyone been playing? Here's the results of my recent Serbia to Yugoslavia campaign.

I think it is some form of irony poisoning, where rootless young men spend so much time working on this ridiculous accelerationism shit in their mod 'as a meme', and because they have no real political grounding, they begin to internalise this obviously absurd ideology until they start thinking 'hey, maybe this isn't so crazy after all?'

>As plenty of people have pointed out Bataille's path for France is to put it bluntly "a disgrace", It is a complete misunderstanding of Bataille's real world economic and social views. George Bataille was not a cannibalistic rapist "WHAT IF THEY CONSENT THOUGH???" AnCap. And the stated goal of France in his path of "Creating a society based on its accursed share" is basically word salad.
I actually agree with this but if they make Bataille's path some sort of L/Acc shit will they still leave in the AnCap path but just change who Artuads second in command in it is?

From the comments it seems they are trying to get rid of all the old 'funni' routes. Which, I mean, I never really liked Red Flood that much but if you remove the meme value from it then I really don't see that there's anything left.

>Idea for something that should be in TNO / A submod.
Red-Flood crossover.
As a player controlled French state after you get curbstomped by Burgundy if you take a very certain choice or decision etc then Marc-Augier/Saint-Loup starts an UltraNat rebellion in Bordeaux in the same Vein as Long Yun.
Much like Long Yun your "bleeding out" with a constantly degrading negative national spirit but to balance it out your units have something like 20% attack org and defence for all your units. You can reduce the effects of the "bleeding out style focus" by taking decisions where you basically raze / loot states under your control for everything it can possibly give for the war effort reducing them to 1 infrastructure and destroying all factories in the process.
Once you capitulate the French State Burgundy and Brittany dogpile you.

Yeah it also has a path where Goebbels (leader of the socialist faction that's just "Bolshevik" put in google translate so is called Majority) goes into the communist meeting in Germany and is like "guise… wot if we had socialist with all the classes?" and all the communists become immediately convinced and become Strasserists.

Anarchism finally got Nerfed in TNO.
Instead of the regular Siberian workers revolt it seems once you unify CentralSib+FarEast the entire Free territory explodes into a giant Heydrich Germany style cold civil war where you have to woo people to your side.

They are renaming LibSoc to socialism and AuthSoc to Communism, while also doing some shuffling between the two (Nasseresque authsocs are now socialists, Sablin is communist etc). The idea is that Communism is Leninist and socialism is non-Leninist and sometimes non-Marxist.
They are also adding a crap ton of sub-ideologies to fill in further gaps. For instance we just saw a reveal that showed the Palestinians being MZT (Maoists).

It seems like Krasnacht imploded. Most of the original creators left and they started to disassociate themselves with BTWH. Probably this have something to do with the kaiserboos taking over the project to try and make it line up with the updated lore.

Could anyone help me find a HoI4 mod in development? I once saw it here under some sort of mod megalist. It was called The New Order but in some sort of latin (possibly French) language ("le ordo nouvo" is my aproximate butchery of the name). It was basically TNO, but in Kaiserreich cold war where Totalist right-wing syndicaliats won WW2. It had really in-depth DD about France, which basically became a corrupt fascist corporate state run by crooked syndicates. There was a guaranteed French civil war that wasn't actually a civil war but more a bunch of different army regiments trying to pull a fast, mostly undestructive infrastructure and civilian lives wise, coup. The most based outcome (in my eyes) was a "neosocialist" (basically ML in the right wing totalist-dominated world taking power and crearing a planned economy. Not sure about the rest of the world.

Judging from what can be seen on Discord, the devs are openly talking about "realigning" the mod to be more in line with Kaiserreich lore. There is also an announcement from early February that the dev team is undergoing a "reorganization". Ever since early March no new country teasers have been realesed. There has been also talk of changing Krasnacht lore to fit recent changes in Kaiserreich lore (France, India). This is probably just an excuse to change more shit with less resistance (if Kaiserreich changes something again will they start rewriting things again? also I thought the point of Krasnacht is/was that they are open to retconning Kaiserreich for the sake of realism/consistency/hismat). Most likely things are fucked, the devs are just good at keeping things quiet.

What exactly is the drama with KR lore changes? I know there seems to be a schism almost in their community, but I didn't actively follow the mod for a long time. I know Russia is getting reworked into starting as a Savnikovist dictatorship or something, but that doesn't seem so large as to warrant a drama.

>Both democrats and anti-Soviet communists will also be able to declare the destruction of fascism a greater cause than the spread of socialism and align themselves with the British Empire. Doing so will allow Poland to renew her interests in colonialism and attempt to purchase colonies from Allied powers. By officially recognising the Maritime and Colonial League, Poland can purchase Madagascar, Palestine, and more. If any of your purchases are successful, Poland will have somewhere to build their forces in exile, should the front back home fail.
