Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

I sent a request on the git for Kyrill Romanov to be removed as Tsar for the same reason Gabrielle D'Anuzzio was removed, he's just too old to be crowned and rule for a year

The idea is that you crown Vladimir III directly, and his father is on the coronation as a guest of honour and dies shortly after
 
I asked about PuYi freedom of moviment on the reddit, this is the answer from the admin Drozdovite

"He's free to do pretty much whatever he wants so long as he stays out of politics. So yeah, he can visit cinemas, travel to other provinces and walk through Beijing, provided he's always protected. The Zhili are nowhere near as interested in keeping him as a hostage as the Kwantung Army was, so they really only care about him being safe as he gives them legitimacy, as opposed to him being under watch 24/7 "
 
Another question: why does Germany almost always invite the Caucasus states into the Reichspakt now? It happens almost every game that I’ve observed since the latest update. Even the Don-Kuban Union, which basically has no legitimacy—as shown by the fact that it essentially always returns to Russia when a referendum is held—is invited in.

Yeah. It seems like Germany really shoots itself in the foot there.

They could (hypothetically) negotiate with a more amiable Russia to only have a single-front (assuming Russia adheres to it) by seeling out some number of the Eastern allies, (maybe "sell out" Ukraine but provide them something to delay the Russians) to avoid that. Russia might eventually take over all of those and then backstab them, but that'd be a "better" process than Germany immediately getting itself into a two front war.

Especially since Germany really can’t afford to send a couple million troops east, even with the Ukrainians, Finns, Belarusians, etc helping out. Not when you’ve got a dangerously revanchist enemy faction itching for the slightest opportunity to hit you while you are down. The older version of the mod had a deal where Germany would surrender Ukraine and Belarus to Russia in return for Russia staying out of the war— I can see why they took it out(Third Internationale really needs the second front to have any chance of winning) but that always just made sense to me. Germany wouldn’t want to give up those lands, of course, but better the Russians in Kiev than the French in Berlin.

In my experiences, Third Internationale still is "winning" even without the second front. I've only seen Germany win with one front when they had extra time to prepare due to the Entente fighting the Internationale. I think Germany would win, but I've yet to see the war stay one one front.

I feel like Germany would give up those lands, but they'd support the Ukrainians to drag Russia into a long war, "deal with the Internaionale quickly" (It wouldn't be quickly from what I've seen, so likely wouldn't work), whirl over, Smack down the Russians (assuming they haven't rolled the Ukrainians.

Obviously, Even if part of the "beat Internationale quickly and whirl around" plan works, I doubt the Ukrainians would be able to last long enough for the Germans to do that, without the Germans being "obvious" enough that the Russians just expand their war to be fighting the Germans aswell, or at least taking enough resources from their Western front.
 
Since there are no Nazis in KR, how would you describe life for German Jews in the German Empire? Do they have any lobby groups or associations?
I remember seeing a quote that "In 1900, Germany would be the last country in europe where people would think a holocaust could start", I don't know if it is true or not.

But by this time they were pretty much integrated, most were secualr jews with german names. One of the first stages of the nazi taking over was to sign a law that forbade german jews from germanizing their names (the guy who wrote that law, Hans Globke, wasn't punished by the way).

Normalized low-grade discrimination and casual bigotry, focus of hate for the ultra-right, but not as much legal discrimination anymore. Probably Germany and France are on similar levels.

Russia is probably a lot worse due to the White victory.

Russia is probably about to go into kristallnacht level antisemitism, in 1900 russia was THE most anti semite country in europe and only shut down the pogroms in 1905

Most of the anti semitic myths come from the russian whites, even "The protocols" fake book come from it, the only thing that didn't made russia go kristallnacht yet or restart the pogroms is because it is a democracy and not a dictatorship by one of the white generals

I believe that the new Savinkov lore has him pulling a Kristallnacht expy, though I honestly kinda preferred the old lore which made him a different and interesting kind of evil.

It is not focused on the jews but on the left, apart from that you are right

And well, vladimir purishkevich is a possible head of government of the restored Tsardom, he was the leader of the black hundreds, so him as the prime minister is probably THE WORST OUTCOME for russian jews

Got a response

"Kirill only died in OTL due to conditions that arose from his exile, much like his cousin Dmitriy. Since he never goes to exile in KR, they will never happen, and as such he would live longer. "

I would add that the Devs have grouped a lot of German Jews in the "Deutsche Organisation der Internationale," an explicitly pro-French revolutionary socialist and banned party [1]. With Rosa Luxemburg, Paul Levi, Kurt Eisner, and Eugen Leviné as prominent members of a perceived fifth-columnist group, attitudes in the Kaiserreich could still be very discriminatory. Even more moderate and/or affiliated parties are not immune, if the progress reports are any indication. Rudolf Rocker (not Jewish but big in Jewish Anarchism; it's complicated), Gustav Landauer, and Erich Mühsam run the "Freie Vereinigung deutscher Gewerkschaften" (Free Association of German Trade Unions). So the OTL Weimar-era German conceptualization of Jews is very possible, especially if the "Deutsche Vaterlandspartei" (AKA "totally not the DNVP, but yeah they love Kurt von Schleicher and hate parliamentarianism, why do you ask?") is apparently a mainstream German party.

I REALLY find extremely hard to achieve the same level as OTL, especially if Germany won the war, the antisemitism skyrocketed like that as a excuse for german defeat (such as it did through the russian whites)

The high number of german jews on left winger parts might be because they are in fact left wingers, it is like bavarians on a catholic party since bavaria is a conservative region
