    I wasn't really too into Conquistador because of the strategy elements. I enjoyed Viking quite a bit as a well done turn based RPG that scratched a Norse itch I wasn't aware I had. I even liked it enough to buy a second copy for a friend to help support Logic Artists, something I normally only do while intoxicated.

    I bought EV on release precisely because of your “shilling” and I do not regret it. Very strong game, although the combat got a bit repetitive if you played it in the first couple of weeks. Plan to eventually circle back and buddy up with the Picts next time.

    These developer forums are definitely counterproductive, but people also had their heads up their asses with this one. Maybe more evidence of market saturation

    I'm approaching the inevitable chosen one must choose moment, and I'm increasingly more tempted to just screw everyone and conquer both Perth and Northumbria on my own :shredder:

    You made the mistake of dividing homestead upgrades between prosperity and power. You have to choose one early on and stick with it.

    You should do a review afterwards. Tigrane's review was inadequate for a number of reasons.

    Have you decided the fate of that independent village both factions eventually send you to, I think you can muster some power there by taking it for yourself. But yeah power is harder to acquire than whatever the other measure of your peoples is so best to prioritize it because you can just convert excess money into the other category.

    Tigranes review was garbage. He focused too much on how it negatively compares to Conquistador, while failing to express many of the positive changes it made. The few positive changes he does acknowledge are diminished to a brief sentence, and not once does he even mention the two upgradeable strongholds which are central aspects of the game.

    He clearly showed a bias towards Conquistadors, and was unable to judge Vikings based on its own merits.

    Well I guess you are going to have to chose who to present your other honor to the Scots or the Northumbrians.

    He gets that now. Its not immediately obvious what power and prosperity actually do, tempting players to avoid prioritising one over the other. I kept power fairly high, reasoning that if my lands grew rich and I didn't have the military might to defend it, a negative event would trigger other Vikings to attack my hometown.

    As usual the greatest enemy was my own imagination.

    tbh the prosper/power ratings are kind of dumb and arbitrary, and now i'm a bit upset that i have to reload and call a second brexit referendum because of them, but such is life

    My issue with the prosperity/power mechanic is that there's no incentive to gaining prosperity.

    You need at least 50 power to unlock Lindisfarne and Avalon, and 100 power to get the Viking Conquest ending. Prosperity unlocks you nothing.

    Avalon was a disappointment by the way. Only cool part about it was the song that played.
