    Also the UI is damn great, it is LEAPS better than EU4/HOI4/CK2/Stellaris, and is even a little bit better than Victoria 2 which I consider the benchmark for Paradox UI.
    The artists realy have done a great job for the UI.

    The map visualy looking is also a great step up from their previous games, from aesthethics point, this game is leaps above everything else what pdox had to offer so far.

    The UI looks like Ceasar 3 and I don't mean this as a compliment.

    I wanted to express surprise, not to signify I care that greatly. Victoria 2's UI is so bad that I don't know where to begin. I haven't played all of PDX' shit, but I found EU4 to be quite good, compared to what we had before it.

    Maybe it's just because I'm not an idiot but I've played every paradox game pretty much and I can't think of a single one where I didn't learn and enjoy the UI in 15-20 minutes tops.



    If you're having trouble with Vic2/Hoi4/Eu4's UI's you probably have bigger problems. These aren't complicated systems lol.

    I would love to hear you compare and contrast how EU4's ui is vastly improved compared to Vic 2.

    Hurr durr, country info is at top of screen, diplo I right click on other countries.

    That part is exactly the same, I suspect it had something to do with all the retard friendly systems in eu4 like mana points that enable morons like you to actually play these games.

    My firs PDX game was either HoI in 2004 or EU2, can't rightly remember.

    I fail to see what does Victoria's interface have that sets it out as better in any way.

    Also, I'm sure you "enjoyed in 15 minutes" the torrent of dialogue windows in Victoria, EUIII or any PDX game before EU4.

    There's nothing inaccessible about Victoria 2's UI at all. It even tells you what every tab contains in nice big letters, which is far more than newer Paradox games can say (see HOI4, where the UI is left a mystery until you figure out what everything is through trial and error).

    I'd agree if not for its habit of dropping mouse clicks when running at speed 5, which automatically makes it a trash UI in my opinion, no matter how good everything else is designed.

    ??? I don't get it.



    "I fail to see what does Victoria's interface have that sets it out as better in any way."

    Me neither

    My issue is with

    " Victoria 2's UI is so bad that I don't know where to begin. "

    How is EU4's UI substantially better then VIC 2?


    You're probably just a retard who couldn't understand the old Pdox games, you probably enjoy EU4 for it's mana system. For retards like you.

    I like the notifications in the top left for one thing. Reduces the number of popup windows.

    IDK, maybe it's just me but I never though popups were a big deal unless I was going 5x speed trying to burn years.



    EU4 was junk anyways, 1 step forward 2 steps back from 3.

    Take note the first game was named Europa Universalis: Rome, so Imperator is also just a EU4 spin-off, so basicaly it is a map painter in a different setting.

    The Roman times is a much better setting to create an empire, blob and map paint because there are plenty of small provinces to conquer.

    Is typing properly difficult for a retard like you?

    Do you mean victoria revolutions? I liked vicky 1 alot when I played it. It's one of my favorite games of all time. That said I don't have the desire to spend hours on end splitting pops these days.

    Maybe that is what you tell yourself. But the reason you are edgy as fuck is because that's all you can do.

    Oh no, some dumbfuck is calling me rearded on the internet, what am I going to do?
