    Has anyone else figured out that espionage is a top-tier idea if you're playing a Catholic great power (not just Russia, due to claiming entire areas)? If you prioritize taking out all the other Catholics (not hard if you're France, Castile, Poland, Austria) ASAP to become a perpetual curia controller then you basically have all the AE reduction you could ever need from then on. No coalition threats will ever emerge against you. It even makes religious ideas and deus vult look weaker, which is unbelievable until you've seen it yourself. Espionage/aristocratic is of course absolutely monstrous as Poland anyway.

    Getting a nation with exploration ideas as a vassal means you can forge claims overseas without that weak idea group, by the way, and map stealing works perfectly fine with espionage too. Old and new world expansion benefits so much from espionage that I'm not even sure diplomatic ideas can keep up for Catholic Europeans.

    And if you're in the HRE it's mandatory. :obviously:

    Yeah that is a weird title.
    The origins of human civilization was arguably in the Fertile Crescent and China, not Africa, so it couldn't be referring to that. It's not even set during the right time period, unless the devs seem to think that civilization started around 1492 AD.

    I'm running a Mexico game at the moment (Portugal new world rush -> Mexico), and honestly it's a real blast.

    That said, they have totally fucked the native tribe mechanics in North America. I'm basically uncontested for the entire east coast, and will eat the Spanish outposts on the west coast with almost no difficulty. Why have they made colonising NA such a slog?

    You know, I didn't like the moving tribes mechanic either. They could have chosen a middle ground between filling up NA to the brim and a few tribes moving around. Other colonizers are also too scared to attack the tribes in NA due to AE, though they have no qualms about doing it in Australia.

    It's not just that, it's the fact that in the 1500s you get the odd tribe with the same Mil tech as you and they're boring to conquer... it becomes a game of Benny Hill chasing tiny stacks around. Retarded.

    I suspect it's trying to be historically accurate. :smug:
