Is it usually a good idea to attack a neutral,weak,AI controlled nation immediately after starting the game?

  • So I am playing a lot of rounds in this game,and I would like to know whether attacking weak countries for the resources is worth it.

    Btw,in the 10 player map,which nation should you attack first as the Ottoman Empire?

    Im a pretty Mediocre player :|

  • I think yes. My strategy is to find an ally/coalition from my neighbours, then to build fortresses on the border against others and to attack a small AI nation. This way I am strenghtening my economy, without losing vast amount of troops
