Strategy[edit]

Early Game[edit]

Flag of Ainu Ainu starts as a tribe in the North Japanese archipelago with the Japanese daimyos during the Sengoku period (戦国時代 Sengoku Jidai). Since Flag of Ashikaga Ashikaga at early game owns all of domains as their daimyo,it's not easy to expand southward.But fortunately,Ainu also starts with a Flag of Yeren Yeren's province that has Ainu culture & animist religion,Kamchatka. Ainu starts with 2 diplomats,so it's neccessary to put one to spy Flag of Yeren Yeren and one more to improve relation with Flag of Korea Korea.

Flag of Yeren Yeren is more likely to ally with or under Flag of Oirat Oirat,which is in early game will at war againts Flag of Ming Ming.If Flag of Yeren Yeren go to war againts Ming,attack them and occupy Kamchatka & several coastal provinces of Flag of Yeren Yeren.Also if their armies isnt present because fighting in Flag of Oirat Oirat lands,try to seize their capital to got more war score.But always avoid fight their armies,since Ainu is a tribe that unlikely have enough army to fight Flag of Yeren Yeren.If they willing to accept any peace agreements,take Kamchatka & some coastal province.It's also important to get some money from them.It's neccessary to end the war before Flag of Ming Ming ends their war againts Flag of Oirat Oirat & Flag of Yeren Yeren.

After that,ally with Flag of Korea Korea if they willing to because they will help further expansion and starts spying Flag of Yeren Yeren again.Always wait until Yeren go to war againts another country,then declare war againts them until it's possible to full annex Flag of Yeren Yeren.It's also important to core all provinces before go to the next war,and set higher autonomy on Manchuria region provinces instead of converting their religion because it will costs so much money and Tengri isnt a good religion if became Ainu's state religion.

Expand More[edit]

At this point after having some province in Manchuria,sell any province that accepted by Flag of Ming Ming and then became their tributary.This is because Flag of Jianzhou Jianzhou is tributary under Flag of Ming Ming and not became their tributary then declares war againts them will cause Flag of Ming Ming called into the war.After became tributary under Flag of Ming Ming,starts build spy networks on Flag of Jianzhou Jianzhou and then go to the war.Dont forget to call Flag of Korea Korea and they are likely join the war because usually they are rival.

Avoid any fight againts their army & try to seize province as fast as possible.Repeat this until Flag of Korea Korea & Flag of Ainu Ainu bordering each other.They will broke alliance soon but try to still improve relationship with them to prevent future war.At this point,expansion on Manchuria region should be stopped for a while.

If there are any big or strong domain in Japanese archipelago that doesnt under Flag of Ashikaga Ashikaga,improve relationship with them and starts building spy network on Flag of Ando Ando.After having some province in southward,spawn the rebels of Shinto zealots then convert to Shinto so there is no need to worry about further expansion to southward.This is because Japanese's province usually have high developments and very expensive to convert.
