So it is not PBEM.

Can be difficult then to mobilize more than 2 player at a time.
With some planning it should not be impossible! :)

I almost bought the game. I like that kind of games, but at same time I fear those games because they will take forever...

Upside to these kind of games is that its perfectly fine to save the game and close down the computer... :P

I think main question for me is that if I start game and play one evening, lets say 3 hours, will I see that something has happened. Don't remember was it Stellaris or Endless Space 2 where I played evening and in end realized that nothing had really happened. I had just been expanding alone... Not sure if had taken too big universe or something 😆

Haha, I know the feeling. But rest assured. Things will move along. Currently playing communist china and I have managed to secure most of china. But I have no fleet so I cant invade Japan ATM. And the Soviets nearly got crushed so I had to send 80 divisions to he European front to help out.

Compared to previous installations of the game I do feel that the AI has picked up quite well.

Best regards,

Hearts of Iron 4 is definitely a slow starter, but once things start to roll you can get a lot of stuff done in few hours. That being said, it's grand strategy and to truly enjoy one, you must spend countless hours of planning and plotting and trying to fix borders so they don't make you puke every time you try to admire your empire.

China and Japan areas usually start a bit faster since they did so in real life too, but it's not a requirement to follow the historic timelines..

Also, it's not turn based in a sense, so if you go for the maximum speed time will fly pretty fast so you can skip a lot of idleness if you want to.

If you guys ever feel like arranging a game night to see how it goes, I would be interested to try too just to see how it goes. It might get a bit hairy since you can't really pause and constantly adjust the time like when playing single player so it's probably going to be a very different experience :)

I think I have to buy it, I have played lot other games from Paradox but not in few years. Like Heart of Iron, Crusaders Kings, Victoria etc. but now they feel so damn long. But got finally bored with XCom 2 with Long War mod so probably should get HoI.

But before I do I think I should finish my twitter bot :mrgreen:
