There's a general strategy thread, but it's dead, so I'll be making a new one!

I've been playing a lot of HoI4 recently; vanilla for the last week or so, but The New Order and Equestria at War in the main.

I wondered if anyone else has played any recently?

I mainly stick to CK2 & 3 but I keep meaning to drop in to HoI4. How easy would you say it is to get into the swing of it? Any tips for a newb?

I'm not an expert, but it isn't... impossible?

Vanilla is probably harder than most of the mods, but its an okay place to start - the tutorial is kinda trash, but playing a game as the USSR or Germany should teach you.

I mostly suggest... committing? It's generally best to go deep rather than wide - complete a focus tree, then another, rather than doing a lot at the start.

Honestly, Vanilla is kinda trash, TNO, Kaiserreich, Equestria at War, and the like are better *games*.
Neat. I'll download the mods then and make a start on a base game campaign as the USSR and report back.

There is no USSR in TNO, Kaiserreich, or EaW.

TNO has Western Russia under Nazi occupation government and the rest of it is in various stages of anarchy.
Kaiserreich Russia is a kinda shitty Republic, but the USSR can come back.
EaW takes place in Equestria, the closest you got to the USSR is Stalliongrad.

I think she means using vanilla USSR as a practice run?

That's what I did!
