    But it's actually true and happened way into 19th century. The last ones to be converted to Islam at the tip of the sword were the Nuris and this happened in 1890s. This was so late that pagan beliefs there were still contemporary to Victorian era British rule in India.

    There will be stuff in the game like "witchcraft", which is perceived as supernatural by the characters, but in fact is not.

    This looks so bad but it's all so tedious that I can't be bothered to enumerate why here. Props to Paradox for somehow making Imperator look good in comparison, though. Really amazing work in fucking up beyond repair.

    Well, that explains a lot. As we like to say, "choices and consequences".

    Actually, this should be what makes it interesting. Look at KODP: that's basically your gold standard early era game, and it's one of the best and most flavorful games ever created. Having a game based around tribes instead of nations creates a very intimate and detailed perspective, if you actually bother to reflect that in your design.

    You don't seriously believe the Parajews won't release this stuff as DLCs later on, do you? China was not in the original CK2 either IIRC.

    If the game is half-way successful, they will do the same thing they always do. Release DLC after DLC adding everything they can possibly think of.

    China will be there, nomads will be there, magic will be there. Again, these things will simply come in form of shekelicious DLCs - just like last time.

    You are missing the point. These ratings aren't for the post. They are attached to the post, but they are rating the poster. Even good posts by that poster will get Respectively Disagree x 99, because of other, unrelated posts. This is the forum disease. The "you are right here, but i disagreed with you yesterday on another thread, so fuck you here too". It is le Reddit faggotry of the highest caliber.
    And no, its not me. I barely ever post on forums specifically because of this shit. I barely ever post here specifically because of this shit. But hey, be a good piggy and swim around in the shit.

    I always up for more map granularity.
    I disagree that the lowest playable level should be duchy, Count >>> Duchy >>> Kingdom >>> Emperor is always the most fun trek to make. Hopefully, this means playable Barons. That would very much rock.

    I do wonder if this means they will kill the "county holdings" system.

    Honestly, my real worry is Performance. Paradox is notable for releasing lag-ridden games with bad optimization. Lag almost killed CKII up until they released the Reapers' Due Expansion and started putting performance enhacements alongside every patch. Now I'm pretty sure CKII is faster than it ever was, even through it has more content.

    Maybe I am a poorfag with high standards, but I always had an opinion that when you meet a game's system requirements, you should always be able to play it smoothly, even if with lowered graphics.

    CKIII has been in development since 2016.

    It actually explains all the goodies for CKII into this year, they wanted to prepare the hype. Clever of them.

    My only true gripe with this is that it means Victoria III isn't coming anytime soon.

    There's some speculation they want to separate this stuff into DLC, which in turn can have a different regional availability than the core game (thus excluding problematic countries), but it sounds quite delusional to me, especially coming from r/.

    In the #metoo era and during a time, when alleged sexual harassment is first reported on twitter and not to the police, I take any of the allegations with a grain of salt.

    That doesn't sound right. Three years for... this?

    I assumed it looks the way it does because it's so early in development, and yet... here we are.

    I don't really believe that, even Feargus could trick their "magnitude higher" paid publishing team and the ones who got squeezed were Paradox, not Obsidian.

    What in the name of the Great Unclean one, this is the result of THREE YEARS of development? Ils se foutent vraiment de notre gueule! :rage:

    That's it I will just wait for the free to play edition and discounted DLC bundle. Why should I switch from CK2 with full DLC?

    With this development plus the fiasco that was Imperator: Rome; I have lost all faith, I prefer they never make Vic3.:killit:

    The Victoria series deals with European Imperialism and Colonialism at their absolute peak, woke nu-Paradox isn't touching these issues without diluting them to the point of oblivion. Vic3 will probably never be made, and that's probably for the best.
