Alliance with Poland in 1.13
The 1.13 guides are wrong. Allying Poland does not require additional troops. Poland having Ottomans as rivals will grant a +20 modifier when asking for an alliance, as Byzantium will be threatened.
It is therefore possible to ally them without taking any loans. It merely requires a statesman advisor and a RM.
- Correct it then, though since its very prescriptive it can be reworded instead. Dauth (talk) 00:53, 6 November 2015 (CET)
I've removed the guides for patches 1.5 and 1.6 since they are obsolete. I've also edited the 1.7 guide to be less personal and more comprehensive. Whenever someone writes a new guide for a new patch, please delete the older guides.
The proposed strategy does not work with Venice, since you need to culture shift to Greek culture before forming BYZ. Culture shifting requires moving your capitol to a Greek province. Venice can not move their capitol, neither can Italy.
The strategy works with Serbia though.
