Strategy[edit | edit source]

Early Game[edit | edit source]

Ryukyu starts the game with a force limit of only 6 regiments. The player will not be able to attack Japan or Flag of Korea Korea as the countries there will be much stronger, but may wish to turn their attention southward. Flag of Maynila Maynila is a good choice, as they are fairly weak, and conquering them won't adversely affect relations with other Filipino countries too much. Subsequent targets could be Flag of Cebu Cebu, Flag of Lanao Lanao, Flag of Maguindanao Maguindanao, and Flag of Sulu Sulu. Taking the Exploration or Expansion idea group would allow for the colonizing of Taiwan and later on for forays into Indonesia and Australia, or towards Alaska and the Americas. Meanwhile, improving relations with Flag of Ashikaga Ashikaga or another strong nation in the area could be beneficial with an eye towards allying them, should Flag of Ming Ming or Flag of Korea Korea attack.
