Alright I put up a poll. First to five votes gets the game. I'm considering everything people said before as nominations, not votes. If you vote Australia you may also post which scenario you want.

I voted Oz simply because it was unconventional but not totally implausible as an industrial power. But I think most people here are looking for something more conventional in the European theater, and you should have some kind of chance at winning, so France: Road to War it is.

First to five votes is a dumb idea. Whoever has the most votes at 5:00 (my time) on Thursday will win.

I played a game of this as France where I beat Germany with aid in the form of resources from the Allies and some air support from Britain. I started at the earliest starting point the game allows you to have. It was slow at first, but then it picked up and I was able to win eventually. Then I conquered Italy. It was fun doing that for a while. Then I uninstalled HOI2 because I was out of hard drive space.

France Road to War looks like it'll be the winner. Unless there's a turnaround of course.

Update the First





Spoiler (click to show/hide)



I know my current newscast-like style is kind of ridiculous considering there weren't any newscasts. I'm using it because it's the easiest style to write. I may switch later to the perspective of the French government but it would be really boring right now. Additionally the French peacetime economy is terrible. I wish I had looked at that before changing my government because than I could have become more interventionist. This would allow me to hopefully guarantee some independences and start some wars. As it stands I'm just waiting for the peacetime penalty to get reduced (happens when Germany starts breaking the Treaty of Versailles) before trying to build a competent military. Also I made up the Ethiopia thing because everything else was so boring.

Second update (a personal best)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)



EDIT: Alright this time I think my style is better. I also glazed over a lot of the boring stuff I did this time and set the speed to extremely fast because not much was happening. Also if any Hearts of Iron player can tell me what the percentage below represents than I'd be grateful.

That percentage is how much of your army is currently being modernized, with newer gear and such.

If the numbers on the right side of the screen are what I think they are, dump Madagascar.

You mean the left side of the screen?

Oh. Do you know how naval combat works? It makes no sense to me.

I think I remember something about releasing worthless colonies having a chance to trigger an increased revolt risk, and there's no real harm in keeping it, aside from released undeveloped colonies receiving a free +5 IC.
