An Alternate German Theme

Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:52 am

I found it on YouTube and jiggled it around myself to make it sound better.

NOTE: Before you ask, this is NOT a Nazi song. Der Königgrätzer Marsch was written in 1866 by Johann Gottfried Piefke to celebrate the Prussian victory over the Austrians at Königgrätz that same year.

I already have different music in mind.

Also, if you have to ask whether or not it's a Nazi song…

I do not understand why that obsession with changing the theme of Germany, I think it works well and I do not find it "boring"

about this, I do not think that a march is the most appropriate for a theme, there are very few themes that are marches and they are generally melodious, while this is something thunderous.

I have seen many people clamouring for a new Germany theme, and come on, this is Prussia. Of course they need a thundering march.

as a thunderous theme for Germany, I think more of something Wagnerian than a military march

Something important is that the theme does not have to stand out over other aspects of the game.

Nonetheless, Prussia at this time was an extremely militaristic country that was constantly at war with people. It deserves loud military music.

Why don't we just use the Ride of the Valkyries and be done with it?

I think that a loud themes can distract players from aspects such as the completion of improvements or combat alerts.

the ride of the valkyries seems more than appropriate.
