Guys, we are only 3. Any idea on how/where to recruit some more players?
I'd say the sweet spot for this game would be 6.

what do you think?

6 would be great for balance for competitive, we could do 3 axis players while warming up and waiting for 3 more.

for 5-6 players
on the entente side
UK
USA
SOV

on the axis side
GER
JAP
ITA
(optional Italian player)

If you do 3 I would suggest playing Germany UK and Soviets. That's a reasonably balanced game. Japan USA and China are a viable Pacific option as well

For recruiting others within WPO, I'd contact some others of the Sunday night game. For other others, you should post in the PDX multiplayer forum with all the details of the group, such as
Brief description of group/game (historical/nonhistorical, mod used etc)
Level of play (beginner/advanced/mixed)
newbies welcome (or not)
basic rules (like don't be a dirtbag)
day/time (and ref'd time zone) of games
Discord channel (or other comms method)
link to the WPO site for joining/posting etc

It also possible to set the AI on "really really hard" and have all the players on the same side.

It seems we have a solution for warming up. I've never played HOI4 multiplayer. I'll let you two guys pick and I'll be third axis (based on the preferences you guys stated, EO - germany, jmland - japan, I can take italy.)

I'd be ok with starting this thursday, 18:30 utc.

I'd actually prefer either Italy of Japan (no preference, I'll take last pick).
I'm in another game just now as Germany, and playing as Germany in both can get your brain wires crossed. Bad juju.

Are we going to use the WPO discord channel?
