Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

Similarly, it's mentioned in the UoB lore that they arrested former Conservative party members, and caused "many deaths through overzealous aggression and poor quality prison camps" (source: Kaiserreich wiki). It's also mentioned that candidates have to approved by the ministry of information before you can vote for them, so yay for democracy, I guess? Then there's also the lore saying that they're under heavy rationing, but again, none of this has any effect in game. There's no resentment about not being able to vote for whomever you choose, no repercussions from said overzealous aggression and poor quality prison camps, no effects from rationing, nothing. The only way you know about this kind of stuff is if you read it on the wiki.

All this talk of 'is violence justified to advance the revolution' is genuinely just neocon shit. The fact is that France fairly consistently starts the Second Weltkrieg by demanding territory that has been German for 70 years. It would be one thing if the war starts with a crisis like WWI, but that's not what happens. France demands German territory in a way specifically designed to invoke Nazi Germany. That is what makes even a democratic Internationale morally grey. They are far more willing than the Reichspakt to launch wars of aggression to get what they want. In the vast majority of games they start the equivalent of WWII to spread their ideology, and no matter how wholesome 100 Keanu chungus that ideology might be it will still involve war and political repression.

I also find the suggestion that a democratic Internationale would not commit atrocities to be frankly naive. OTL liberal democracies have some horrible atrocities under their belt- the US in Vietnam, the entirety of the British Empire, France in Algeria. Democracy in a Capitalist context is not a silver bullet against atrocities, and I don't think it would be any moreso in a Syndicalist context. I don't think the Syndies would institute purges or mass collectivization, but at the first hint of popular resistance to their glorious wars of liberation I think you'd absolutely see War in the Vendee 2: this time with industrial technology boogaloo. I can absolutely see France and Britain even under Syndicalists falling into de-facto imperialism- it would just be justified by spreading the Revolution, in the same way US imperialism today is justified by spreading democracy. Honestly this is a big thing I'm hoping for from a coming Internationale rework- making these countries more nuanced than 'here are the Totalists, who are bad and Stalinist, and here are the other factions, who are good'.
IIRC the UoB's rework explicitly deals with this and is turning the food overleveraged island into a relatively shitier place to live at game start amongst other awesome updates.
 
In the Kaissereich background movie/intro it outright says that "Western Europe is taken by revanchist syndicalist powers", which implies a certain amount of belligerence.
I apologize but i can't find the exact part of the video it could have been in the Second American civil War intro instead.
 
I'd like to point out that the Kaiserreich wiki is horribly outdated in many regards, and it shouldn't really be used as a source for information beyond surface details.

While this is true in many regards, the stuff about Union of Britain is brand new and intended to be part of the upcoming rework. Here are the specific new things, should be under the first comment you see: https://www.reddit.com/r/Kaiserreich/comments/kqbqfi
 
Endgame (mostly) of a Full Reichspakt playthrough



 
I was thinking of doing a KR China game, but couldn't quite make up my mind as to which China to play as (Qing, Left-KMT, Fengtian...?) Anyone have any advice or suggestions?

Guys, I need help. Please anyone interested ask for the save in private and I pass you.

So, after I made that comment I played a new game as Huey Long and won on my usual fast time (march 1939), but then I decided to play another game starting as other country and switching to Huey AUS, and the same ocurrences began, my frontlines simple collapsed, troops stopped attacking and you had ridiculous cases of one or two divisions of the enemy routing six of mine even if I had the air superiority, even after I researched radio and overcame them in doctrine.

I just snapped since I finally got a 4 to 1 numerical superiority in Kentucky, and thus I secure the absolute air superiority, took the "Crush the syndicalists" bonus and attacked, but didn't grabbed any province and they kept routing me. In fact the only reason I didn't collapse in 1937 was because the other three factions didn't attack me enought...


I was having problems where my attacks were only by 1 division no matter what I sent to attack. I think it was related to being over my division limit and getting over that solved it. I see you're in the same boat.

try an experiment, use the cheat pp 400 to set your economy to war economy to get over the division limit malus and see what happens.

It is on war economy, but yeah I was over the division limit, lol

I still have that save, tough, thus I might attempt to play it later and delete my infantry (since the militias cannot be deleted
