    Hm, interesting idea. Never thought of it, actually. Is it possible, though? I would hesitate mainly for financial reasons... You go bankrupt, and from then on it is only defend, defend, defend, until they take you.

    Well yes obviously there will be no trade :)

    I think it should be possible with Russia.. since you are only facing a western and southern front.. I'll try it and see how it goes.

    Did this with Russia on NTW for the achievement. They have a number of territories which can be taxed to kingdom come -- this is your sole source of income.
    Should also work in ETW, especially since they have even more territory than in NTW.

    Russia in ETW does not start very wealthy (without trade and functioning ports, that is). You might not be able to sustain large armies to stave your (all known) enemies

    If you start as GB then your only concern is at sea with your non existing trade ports being blocked and your navies being under constant attack because nobody bothers invading you.

    i would say build up in the 13 colonies get them to join you and then declare war on everyone and defend that trade route that way you have plenty of trade to wage war.

    I was about to say, its quite feasable in Napoleon.

    I did it in empire rome2 and currently doing it in Attila tw. In empire it was very easy with great Britain as the would send fleets that I would capture and scrap for cash... So taking the Americas was easy and by that point I had the world locked down with my navy. Then ate the world from India. In Rome 2 I did it with Sparta an it was easy once the army got the trait stalward defender which let me put untakeable forts up outside the cities...had pikemen with 1000 kills with only a handful lost. In Attila I am doing it with eastern Rome...o and i also do it by winning all battles and no auto battles on the hardest game difficulty.
