So, we all know the way to conquer other lands or nations. We usually do declaring war against desired nation or colonize wasteland or neutral lands.
But do you know there are other ways of conquering nations/lands?
First, the diplomatic way.
-very efficient and bloodless, yet takes a long time to do
First step, choose a desired nation to conquer using diplomatic way (this only works if the desired nation is as strong or weaker than yours, bigger nations don't and will just do insults. If you did a larger nation be with you, consider yourself lucky!).
Second, try your best to improve relations to it by sending diplomats, etc.
Third, do an alliance with it. If it doesn't accept, improve relations with it until you got this goal.
Lastly, Do this
Diplomacy -> Form Union
Then turn to see its answer, you just did a unification with your enemy! You can change the flag or your nation's name through changing government type. If it doesn't accept, urge it until you did unification!
Still, that's my ideas for now, still searching for other ways!
Good luck in playing!
