Honestly, as long as they change, fix, and add a few important but minor things, I'm A-okay with what I've got.
Just, please Paradox, fix secret religious cults. Make them fun and challenging to both support and oppose.
It shouldn't be so easy to convert and it shouldn't be so hard to suppress without laming.

There's more than just the Nile becoming navigable coming to CK2, in terms of proper map updates. I'm actually overjoyed that I can finally raid the Hispanic Ummayad capital as the Norse and steal their relics. That Caliph always has good shit and their capital almost never moves and when it does, it stays inland. >:(

So while Paradox is denying the problems of their worst release ever CA is celebrating their most successful release since Shogun 2 (if not more successful).

Like, if the poll hadn't included "meatbags" and "synthetics", we could've had the militarist/pacifist axis covered.

Finally got my gaming pc ready to go and I'm playing EUIV which ran like shit on my other computer. It is noticeably better in that it only slows down at the end of a month and the slowdown is far less egregious.

Decided to play a game as Brandenburg with next to no dlc. I have El Dorado at least so i should be fine. 2 years in COMET SIGHTED!
