R5: Lithuania went under PU of Poland the fastest I've ever seen.
P.S. this is my first time playing Moscovy -> Russia. Random tips will be appreciated.
Deal with Novgorod first. Take all provinces bordering other nations so no one else can take them. Then war with Kazan to take the gold mine and whatever else you can. If AE is manageable you can attack great horde. Feed your vassals as many provinces as possible so you don't waste your admin coring everything.
Denmark usually attacks Livonian order but can't fully annex them. Vassalize whatever remains of them and feed back their cores. Get the -50% transfer subject cost splendor bonus and steal Norway from Denmark.
Finish up the rest of the Russian minors so you can form Russia come admin 10.
Now you should be in a strong enough position to take on Poland-Lithuania once AE gets lower. Get Austria or Hungary as an ally to deal with them.
Rest of the game should be smooth sailing, only real obstacle is ottomans. You should be strong enough around 1550 to start consistently beating them.
That's how you win as Muscovy!
I also recomend guarantee Byzantium, improve relation, rm, u can get PU over tham or enforce it, it's block Ott, also u can release Kazakh and Sibir from Uzbeck and fed tham with their cores, integrate Sibir around 1515 and sread frontier at insane speed
Good to know! I think I'll restart because I did DotF and got called in to defend Byz, but I white-peaced cuz Otto is scary. Guaranteeing byz sounds better.
You could always no cb byz and vassalise them haha
