Save your 10k army for sieging QQ forts (and the capital eventually when their army is gone).
The kingdom itself existed for nearly 200 years and was the major Crusader State of that period.Because I like the ultimate challenge, but also because I was born in Adana, the Ramazanoglus single territory!At this point, I like to break QQ into two east and west regions by taking some Iraqi (ethnicaly Meshriqi) territories in the middle (including Baghdad).At the point the power base in Greece and Anatolia is secured, the player should be strong enough to take on the Mamluks on their own.Mamluks are usually rivaled to QQ so you will have no problem convincing them to join you in your war.As with Cyprus, a more sustainable strategy is to follow the Strategy for The Knights to build a solid power base in Greece, the Balkans and Anatolia before taking Jerusalem.8- Finally I go after my long time ally, the Mamluks last.Yearly prestige, latin Patriarch 2, yearly papal influence, frontier State.
I also take Illam and release Persia for future Timurid rebellions.
Iraq makes up most more than half of QQ so it is really critical for the future advancement of your territories peacefully.After forming the Kingdom of Jerusalem, it is up to the player to decide whether they wish to expand into Europe, Asia or Africa.Provence, The Knights and, cyprus, or released as any other nation.Formation Decision and Beyond edit As soon as the player owns the three required provinces as cores, they may take the decision to form Jerusalem.If you are ready to take another idea, your options are a little more flexible now.Provence, The Knights and Cyprus will form Jerusalem instead of releasing.
This is when the waiting game is over and fun begins.
If they do, avoid losing any troops and pick AI troops one at a time with well coordinated attacks with Mamluk armies until they are exhausted from war.
In a two-step strategy, the player should attack Cyprus on their own as soon as the Mamluks are unwilling to join the war.
