Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg

I like the whole path in KR where you can get Al Capone in charge of the Syndicalist States and make him King of America.
Wait that's a thing? I was aware of the Al Capone path but last I checked (which was admittedly about a year ago as I stopped playing Kaiserredux around then) he couldn't crown himself king?

No offense meant to those who still enjoy it, but IMO Kaiserredux has fallen hard. I've followed it since the beginning, and it used to be so much better. The orginal gimmick of the mod was adding in old content, but with all the polish one would expect of newer Kaiserreich content (my AOG-Chinese Kaiserreich playthrough remains one of the best HOI4 playthoughs I have ever done), but after a while they started leaning way too hard into the memey side of their mod, which had always been there but wasn't obnoxious like it is now. Meme paths have a place IMO, but only as hard to achieve easter egg paths that reward players for going down unique paths (Kaiserreichs 3rd Bulgarian Empire is a perfect example of this). The mod has just become a meme mod at this point, which is a damn shame because for a while I would never play Kaiserreich without it.

Kaiserredux you mean, right. KR itself has no formal affiliation with any submods beyond Kalterkrieg, and that's more just that there's a big dev team crossover.
The Kaiserreich Mafia is the Mafia in the Kaiserreich community, by which I meant Kaiserredux I guess.

Sorry that wasn't clear.

I have nothing against KR.

Egypt in my new game(trying out Sardinia) just went syndicalist(!)

Not as the result of an invasion of anything, apparently on their own(!!)

They don’t seem to have a unique focus tree or anything— it’s the same Egyptian one looks like— but I didn’t even know that was an option
In one hand I want Hawaii to have a facelift, like elections until 1952 and head's of government that were alive in 1937. In other hand this is extremely dangerous due the realism push that is happening and might get the monarchy, or even Hawaii itself removed in the process.

What do you think?
