- 是 勃艮第：0
像大多数对手一样,与法国一战是最重要的,因为它将允许勃艮第以法国为代价快速滚雪球发财。有两个合理的战争目标:第一是风险更大但伴随着更大的奖励,第二个安全又有利可图。获取兰斯和其周边的领土将将把勃艮第的土地与低地地区联系起来，并在香槟贸易节点获得相当大的贸易力量。 这要求你拥有一伙不错的同盟。 吞并里昂地区将使勃艮第能够进入利润丰厚的热那亚贸易节点。 但一个仍然分离的王国和一个更强大的法国无疑是个大问题。
If England's decision was to declare war, a few months should pass in order to get the French forces occupied with the forts in Normandy and Aquitaine before declaring war. This is where Burgundy could use their vassals in two different ways; once again, one way having higher risk higher reward, and the other being a safer, albeit costly (in terms of Attrition) strategy. The first way to use the vassals would be to set them all to siege down the province of Barrois or Paris while the actual Burgundian army goes south to help link the Iberian armies with Burgundy's. This strategy would allow Burgundy to rack up considerable warscore against France while also uniting Burgundy with their allies. But the cost is that the French forces may peel off from their English sieges and steamroll the vassal forces, leaving the Burgundian player significantly weaker. The second strategy of combining the vassal and Burgundian forces together will allow for a massive army that will have a much harder time being tackled by the French. This comes at the cost of massive attrition as this army will easily number in the 30-40k range, which is outside of the supply limit for many provinces in this time period so Manpower may become an issue. Another cost would be tactical inflexibility: Burgundy will have to pick one area and stick to it in order to make any gains there. Sieging Paris or Barrois is recommended as this will both accrue warscore (Paris especially) and allow movement from Burgundy to the Low Countries. Once these two primary objectives are completed the war with France should be taken slowly and thoughtfully, as the French still have the capacity to utterly annihilate Burgundy's forces.
The Remaining 15th Century:
Should the war with France be successful, depending on whether or not the Burgundian player has chosen to annex Champagne or Lyonnais Burgundy will either spend a few or many years to wait for AE to decay while consolidating and managing the realm in preparation for the next war with France (which should be much easier if the Champagne route was chosen). Expansion into Imperial lands is highly unrecommended at this time as the AE penalty will certainly cause a coalition war to fire when combined with the previous French conquests. Waiting for the 'Shadow Kingdom' in the 1480's to 90's is a necessity for expansion into Savoy as this will avoid the wrath of the Emperor and the AE caused by annexing HRE provinces. Also what will most likely occur is the loss of the alliance with Castile or Aragon (unless the promise for land was fufilled, but this is impossible while simultaneously acquiring the Champagne region). The vassal Nevers should be annexed by now, freeing up a diplomatic slot for more alliances. A strong Northern Italian state such as Milan or Genoa is recommended to help with expansion into Savoy and Provence. Another good choice would be an Imperial Elector such as Trier or Cologne. For if Burgundy wishes to expand into the HRE at all, they must either be the Emperor themselves or hope a weak Emperor gets elected to the position. Being elected to the Imperial Throne consistently will cause Austria to lose much of their luster. Allowing for their eventual defeat at the hands of the Burgundians and the acquirement of 'The Burgundian Conquest' achievement.
Idea groups are very often a matter of personal preference and in-game situations so recommendations are hard to make. But if the general rule of picking idea groups that further augment the National Ideas of the nation the player is controlling then Influence or Humanist should be the first idea group Burgundy should invest in. Influence would be the better of the two as this would solve two problems facing an early Burgundy game: Aggressive Expansion and Diplomatic Relations. While Humanist does help with AE, and when stacked with the Burgundian National Idea will allow for total or near total toleration of Heretics, it does not solve the diplomatic relations issue and many of the ideas in the group aren't needed until the Protestant Reformation. Military groups that come recommended are either Defensive or Offensive. Defensive would be a huge early game boon for Burgundian armies, as just the second idea of the group will allow the Burgundian Army to acquire a remarkable 25% land morale over other nations. The Fort Defense is very nice due to Burgundy having to rely on many forts because of their flat and open terrain. While the reduction in Fort Maintenance will save many ducats per month, as Burgundy starts with a large amount of forts. Thanks to the new policy system making them much more viable, Defensive offers fairly good policies when coupled with Humanist or Influence. Combing with influence will grant a minor Fort Defense boost and a rare War Exhaustion reduction per month. Offensive has great synergy with the Burgundian Ideas as this will allow Burgundy to acquire 10% discipline to augment their forces. Having generals with better fire and shock pips is always a plus no matter what situation one might find themselves in. Another reason to pick the Offensive Idea Group would be the excellent policies: when coupled with Humanist Burgundy will gain a further reduction in National Unrest and halve Years of Separatism. This makes the process of annexing newly conquered provinces much easier and rebel-free.
