This is my first time on a form so I apologize for any mistakes.

To the point, I've noticed in a lot of forums no one has even been invaded by sea. In my British campaign Spain lost Florida to the Cherokee and before I know it they sent a massive fleet and a ton of native warriors to my island off Florida. I've also been invaded once before but I forgot exactly where and by who.

Welcome to the forums, Wolf! It's nice to see a new face... forummer.

I don't find it unusual for the AI to invade by sea. I've seen the Maratha Confederacy launch sea invasions quite frequently. They once invaded my allies, the Crimean Khanate, when I was playing as the Ottoman Empire. It was quite a surprise when I followed their massive fleet with a full-stack army aboard through the Mediterranean into the Black Sea. I've also had the Maratha invade my holdings in the New World, when playing as the French. In fact, in the same game, Venice invaded one of my islands.

Hmm. Thanks for the nice reply and welcome.

Maybe I was wrong. I had just been reading others and I hadn't seen anything about people getting invaded. i guess I'll have to start reinforcing my islands.

I'll second Bast's welcoming you to the forum, Wolf Dragoons!

When ETW was originally released, the AI essentially never tried sea invasions. Subsequent patches have remedied this, but sea invasions tend to be most frequently seen when playing at the higher difficulty settings. Certain states tend to launch them more than others, based on their geography etc.

As befits a major naval power, Britain tends to be quite active in this regard.

On a number of occasions I've seen Sweden invade Hanover by sea if Denmark still controls Copenhagen and is blocking the land route.

Thanks Pitt. That makes sense. I ramped up the difficulty and that's when they started invading.

I've been playing a campaign on DMUC (Darth Mod) as spain and was recently invaded by the sea by two armies from Britain with three near full sized fleets in support. God help me.
