If you get HttT and DW, we can all play a multiplayer match! :D


If I manage to finish this Crusaders King game and a) Have it be an interesting world and B) manage to mod it into EU3, we can also play that if you like! :D

Here's how I look at it. Even if I don't like it, it can't be nearly as bad as Excel Football Manager!

Its definitely not a pure combat game but expect wars to be exciting and eventful. Also, there is a reputation system so that if you go gung-ho conqueror other nations will take note, and probably form alliances/declare war on you simultaneously if you are ruthless enough.

Also: you get to like unite countries too. My preferred style is to unite Germany by the late 1400's for funsies. But Ireland, Persia, Spain, Russia, Italy, and even Scandanavia.

Trade is actually intricate, and you can be successful as a trade nation alone (Venice). Or you can forgo the petty european squabbles and colonize the new world (Portugal). Or you can be badass and unite Prussia or Germany as one of the many germanic states by conquering middle europe(I prefer Brandenburg).  Or you can do it all, colonize, war, and trade (Britain, which starts as England, so you could potentially do a Scotland made Great Britain for more funsies). Or you could be the Ming empire and dominate Asia. Or you could be Somalia and await your European overlords as you battle tribes for more desert. Or you could be the Aztec empire and sit on your hands the entire 450 years. It's awesome. And I am leaving almost everything out haha.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

You could always install separate copies. I have an EU3 complete installation for multiplayer, HttT for Magna Mundi, and DW for ****s and giggles.

I just picked up Victoria 2; anyone fancy some MP?

I have EU3 too, but only IN, I'm afraid.

The tutorials aren't very helpful anyway.

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."
