Strategy[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Kotte. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Start by building troops to the force limit, then conquer the small nations under Vijayanagar. Note that Madurai has many cores in Vijayanagar, so using the enforce vassalisation CB on Madurai means you can return their cores after a war with Vijayanagar, therefore, expanding your territory quickly. You should also vassalize the Maldives to prevent rebellions.

Annex your vasal soon after the first victory against Vijayanagar and to get a permanent +1 missionary and +0.5 yearly prestige.

Once you became more powerful, you should be able to ally Bahmanis. Bahmanis is a strong ally to have against Vijayanagar. With Bahmani help, you can easily conquer all of Vijayanagar over a few decades.

The religious idea group should be one of your first idea group, as you get free CB against every other Indian nation and it will help to convert your new territory quickly. The quantity idea group should also be one of your first idea groups, as it can help you build a large army to conquer India for The Buddhists Strike Back achievement. The administrative idea group is also a good option.
