Whats your excuse for not playing grand strategy games?

>>322487643
Honestly I can't stick with it for long enough, the only GS game I've ever stuck with for a long save is football manager

But I do. Also EU3 >> EU4
>>
>>322487643
I love me some EU4 and Vicky. CKII not so much - I can't blob as much as I can in games where you control nations.
>>
>>322487643

do you actually understand what is going on with that college of cardinals shit?

Tell me more about blobbing

Does Star Wars: Rebellion count?

>>322488765
Best nations to blob that are actually fun:
>Brandenburg
>Bohemia
>Austria
>Sweden
>Muscovy
>Poland
>Burgundy

I play CK II, pretty fun, though I'm still trying to get a hold on all the mechanics.
>>
>>322489137
Also is base EU4 worth it or no?
>>

>Whats your excuse for not playing grand strategy games?
Im not going to buy a game that got more DLCs than payday 2
>>
>>322489318
You get most of the features from the patches for free with the DLC just adding extra flavour/mechanics. It's not mandatory but you won't get the full experience without it. CK II is harder than Europa. EU is pretty mindless - as long as you aren't overly reckless you will be fine.
>>
>>322489318
Yes, because of all the free features from patches.
>>
Too time consuming. Interesting but I would have to drop everything to play it.
>>
>>322489318
Buy base game, pirate everything else. It works like you have a legit copy, don't worry.

I only want to play the Geheimnisnacht mod on Ck2 and that shit requires a supercomputer to run reasonably well, because the devs "don't want to put limits on the experience" and just keep on adding more stuff to an already gigantic landmass.
EU4 is still not fun after all those DLC.
Victoria 2 is okay, but lacks the dynamics of say CK2 that make playthroughs unique and have interesting stuff happen.
HoI3 is a pain in the ass to set up, due to having to redo the whole OOB whenever you start a new campaign, also the whole playthrough being railroaded as fuck bothers me.

But I do play them, just not right now.

have to pay to use mods

I accidently made the pope Holy Roman Emperor and now I can't take over, because the dude shits out hundrets of thousands of troops and I just have around 90k and my relatives won't go to war against him.
What do?

Ckii is easier tht tean eu4, it looks harder because the interface is fucking terrible
>>
>>322495437
How long has it been since you last played it?
Ck2 interface was terrible at the start, but it got a bunch of overhauls and is actually pretty good these days.
>>
>>322495538
Even know the interface is a mess in comparison with eu4
>>
the only one i understand how to play is EU4
>>
>>322495618
How so?
I found it easier to overlook important stuff in EU4, because some functions are hidden in a corner or behind a symbol that you wouldn't assume is clickable.

How can people even play CK2 without SWMH. Vanilla map is puke-inducing.
>>
>>322495858
Most people seem to get autistic about the deserts in the near east in that mod.
But you're right, after playing it once I can't go back to the horrible vanilla map.

HIP is how CK2 should be played if you want something close to vanilla.
>>
>>322487643
is this game complicated enough to be a grand strategy game?

>HIP is how CK2 should be played if you want something close to vanilla.

Yeah if you turn off VIET events.

I'm using dark world so I was trying to never marry and only have children as product of prisoner rape but it seems I kept getting penalties for legitimizing my bastards.
Because of that I Couldn't get my shit together and my brother stole two kingdoms after dad died. Now I'm working on getting it back, how annoying.
>>
>>322496848
Not really, but it's an interesting guide nonetheless and /gsg/ puts it's mother series in the OP picture as a honorable mention.

>>322497065
Eh more events are always welcome. As long as you can stomach a meme or two. Most of the events don't have much of an impact on the game balance.
