Good. The rebel doomstacks of EU and Victoria are broken or just outright stupid. CK2's only flaw is that it opens up a lot of weird diplomacy, because there's nothing better than the 3 different Byzantine Rebel Emperors asking to marry my daughter.

Apparently you have to buy The Old Gods in order to be able to play the Aztecs even despite you owning Sunset Invasion.

Sunset Invasion is a bit disappointing tbh. So much potential, but very little content.

You can form the Slavic Union (Empire tier) too, if you rule all the East and West Slavic kingdoms (South Slavic not included, for some reason). You can also form the "Empire of the Outremer" if you control the entire Near East region as the King of Jerusalem.
