Warhammer 3 How to Confederate
From this guide you will learn how the confederation mechanics work in Total War: Warhammer 3.
Total War: Warhammer 3 has a number of diplomatic tools to build relationships with other states. One of them is confederation. From this post you will learn what exactly this mechanic is and how to use it.
What is a confederation?
In Total War: Warhammer 3 confederation is a mechanic that enables two countries belonging to the same race to form a union. This is done on a theoretically simple principle - the country that has a clear advantage absorbs the territories and troops of the other nation. In this way they become one.
However, it should be borne in mind that finances are not taken over with the merfer. So it may turn out that after the confederation is finalized the cost of maintaining the country will be unacceptably high. Therefore, one should consider whether it is worth taking this move.
Confederation as a unique mechanic
Kislev has a top-down battle for dominance. Konstaltyn and Tsarina Catherine are taking part in it. They both accumulate points that define their advantage - the first of the parties to gain 600 of them absorbs the other state. This process is carried out precisely with the help of confederation.
How to bring about a confederation?
Confederation is very difficult to achieve. To work it out, three conditions must be met:
- The state you want to confederate belongs to the same race;
- Sufficiently high relations with the state you plan to take over. To achieve this, you need to perform activities that please the country, such as offering them gifts and taking on their enemies (for example, by looting their lands);
- Clear military superiority. The larger your army is, the more likely it is that another country will accede to the confederation. You can build military might on your own and simply "outgun" your ally. However, there is a more disreputable option based on deliberately weakening an ally. To do this, you need to embroil the marger candidate in a unwinnable conflict. This will cause the country to lose some troops and general strength;
It should also be borne in mind that smaller states will be more likely to accept a confederation proposal.
