since you are england, i would suggest you make an alliance with germany and russia. get russia to attack bulkans to keep the turks from expanding since this is in the interest of russia, support germany's takeover of holland, leave belgium to france, or else france will compain. and try to take over norway and sweden since russia won't object... and then contest denmark with germany later on. if u give denmark to germany, then try to take portugal.. give france spain for now, because it will be easy to take if you have more fleets. also try to convince italy and austria-hungry to compete with russia and ottoman for bulkans.
