I just did a difficult economical-challenged achievement (Lucky of the Irish as kildore).
It was difficult in the early years to keep army tradition higher than 10-25ish Army Tradition.
I was wondering is there an easier first 4 at most idea group order that can reach at least 50ish army tradition hovering ignoring National Ideas (Like Prussian .5 bonus to Army Tradition).
+Two military ideas in three or four first idea groups at most
+possible use of policies is ok
+Assuming western tech group country
+assume National Idea will not contribute one way or another to army tradition
+stuff that indirectly reduce boost army tradition like building cost and less maintenance is ok
+Assume growing tall gameplay with few war or mostly defensive mentality
+reach hovering 50 army tradition or higher
+assume this country will either start small or medium (One province up to 30ish) and grow to afford +1/2 advisers across the board
+idea group obviously have to be practical like second idea is military to avoid falling behind
+ideally doable before 1600 (Thirty Years' War)
+fewer monarchy points used the better
I know it is possible to reach 100% hovering (did it for an achievement) but it requires lot of idea group picks to be practical in every possible situation.
