I liked those but if you think it's mindless effort then no.
It's your game, make the choices...
I would love to see some more detailed posts.
Posts that do consist out of one action only without any flag or roleplay are extremly boring in my opinion and make the gamethread look boring as well.
The Austrian Empire would like to accept all Trade Agreements(Portugal, Prussia).
We also begin to reform our military, as it is clear after the defeats in Italy changes have to be made!
Austria accepts all Trade Agreements that were offered.
^ Posts like this are not fit for a major power in my opinion, because playing like this is going to break the game the same way as it has happened before: Major powers do not really care about diplomacy and creative strategies in the game and make it unplayable for longer time.
No offense against Caz, but I just hate this playstyle because it looks like "Hey I'm Austria, I do not need to care because people can not mess with me anyways". Such playstyles have broken our games before and I would rather enjoy to NOT see it happen again.
