    I turned on all the dlcs and got swarmed by constant events. After some time I stopped reading the text, because it was all rinse and repeat. I have around 700 hours in it, but most of it played in 2015-2016. The game feels different now. Do you play vanila or with mods?

    I play with all DLCs and my own balance mod, thus far called "my mod" but which I intend to release under the name "Iren's Mod" or something. aeternalis give me a suggestion of a better name.

    Never felt it flooded with events or bloated but YMMV

    I haven't played anything for a year, but now I feel like playing some grand strategy, so I might give it another go with all the dlcs, even though I kinda hated conclave, as it felt that the only job council has is to thwart your plans and oppose you in all ways possible even when it makes no sense. It's still the last good game paradox made. How exactly does your mod rebalance the game?

    I have to check it again, but it changes more than 30 .txt files and the define.lua along with including more heraldry from other mods. The balance goes according to what I think are more realistic odds and consequences for random events, decisions, etc. Affects politics, battles, opinions, traits, almost everything. I'll write a better surmise some day.

    I would say CK3 is a smoother experience. It has most of CK2's features, but less content.
    The AI is broken and it's packed to the gills with broken or conflicting gameplay features.

    Still a good game, and mods can come close to fixing it, but CK3 is simpler to just play.

    I get this but I think Ck2 is already too simple. Even with all DLCs

    All Paradox games are at their core extremely simplistic. Hit button to make numbers go up.
    They simply obfuscate that simplicity by adding more and more equally shallow mechanics with each DLC.
    I have over 1000 hours in CK2 and never ever even touched the curia mechanic. Don't need to anyway.

    I tried it once or twice and it's pretty much a waste of time anyway.

    Paradox keeps building its games wider and wider but never deeper – CK2 in particular is really bad with that. It's a fun game to roleplay in, but it lacks any semblance of difficulty or depth and nobody would ever play it for the gameplay.

    That's interesting, Holding Court was fairly important in medieval kingdoms. Hopefully its fraught with dangers too.

    Can we strip all the lands from the nobility and make them kiss the King's ring to get them back? Because that would be giga based and Dom João II pilled.

    There is a "Stop Vassal War" demand you can use to stop BS like that.

    I remember the devs stating that each knight represents him and his retinue, like General's Bodyguard in Medieval II, but each knight only takes up one supply limit point so that's clearly BS.

    Unless you have a weak hook on your vassal, all you'll get is "mmmmm, how about no?" as an answer. And you have zero options to slap him around for it. Plus the option gets greyed out after that.

    But what made the whole thing such an incomprehensable clusterfuck was, that after becoming king it's now suddently a criminal act and I could imprison him. Game probably got confused because he declared through a dejure claim, which my masterrace culture does not have yet. But hey, we discovered a higher dev cap instead, not that our ~3 on average provinces even have roads to begin with... :roll:

    I've tried it over the past year, but somehow can't get into it. Some changes are good, must most just annoy me. This is a subjective thing, but the UI feels too large and very unintuitive. Also I hate the shift from coloured map to land map when zooming in, let me keep the colours FFS :/

    CKII had 15 large and small expansions in period of some 6 years.

    Within one year since release we got only one flavor pack for CKIII and a announced expansion that still has no release date.

    At this pace CKIII will reach its full potential somewhere around 2035.

    CK3 already incorporates lots of stuff that were added in CK2 expansions.

    In the base CK2 you could only play as Christians and couldn't even do stuff like raiding.
