    Same. Even Persia is stretching it.

    CK1 did nothing wrong.

    Back when I still played this I used to run my custom map mod with India and parts of Africa greyed out. The game ran much better(very fast even centuries in) and I never missed those irrelevant corners of the map.

    They could do a lot better than adding China but I guess when you look at the people running the development these days it is no wonder the stupidity is so strong:

    More countries/cultures that do not mesh with the feudal mechanics at all . There obviously aren't enough of these yet (the whole Muslim part of of the map, the Byzantines, all of India, the steppe nomads, most of eastern Europe). Not to mention what this will do to the performance.

    Luckily EUIV is in a decent place right now and MEIOU and Taxes 2.0 is coming out.

    An exclusively East Asian/China game in the vain of RoTK would be very very cool but duct-tapping on China to the already bloated Crusader Kings series won't have the slightest chance to do the setting justice.

    Gotta agree with this. It's going to be like the weak Byzantine mechanics, which really don't make much sense. More importantly, it's going to lag the game even more. My computer can barely handle it as it is. I'm all for China being in Crusader Kings 3, but this probably won't be very good, sort of like India.

    Tibet can stay.

    At this point is there any doubt that the next dlc will be about China? Some of you guys speak as if that is the case.

    Why else would they add Tibet?

    "Filling in the game's wasteland which wasn't historically", in essence.
    Coincidentally, it also means "gib moni" in Swedish.

    I doubt they'd go further east with this decrepit engine, but with their half 1/100th-arsed approach to everything, it would only be good for a laugh or two anyway before you use a mod to disable it, just like India.

    I'd actually love to play China and other Asian countries, but I'd prefer a proper full-fledged game/expansion about China (et al) not half-arsed DLC with some gimmick features. Don't understand me wrong, I'm a DLC junkie when it comes to CK2 and there's not a single DLC I did not get, and if they half-arse China I will buy it as well, however, I'd prefer them to make a proper game about it. Pope DLC, on the other hand, would be a small expansion in comparison and well within DLC policy - it wouldn't need to be a large add-on, but merely a slap of some additional features over the existing mechanics. Hence Pope DLC could actually be good whereas China DLC would be mediocre at best.

    Actually, they're adding Tibet because they've run out of face DLCs to make, so they can sell Tibetan faces if they add Tibet. Remember when they added Mali to the game and immediately started selling African faces? Then sold a completely separate Ethiopian face pack later?

    How about making so I can play as a Christian holy order grandmaster? Oh wait... that would actually make them put some effort into new mechanics.
    Instead of adding another pointless region that no one plays in and it just makes the game lag a lot (India)

    I never understood the fixation on playing theocracies and holy orders. It would be another gimmicky second tier government type thing, just like republics. I would prefer for them to improve religion, politics and war mechanics across the board. They did it in some of the EUIV dlcs. Work on the core mechanics(and they sorely need work) and stop adding bullshit to the game.

    So many of the features they added in the dlcs eventually became nothing more than 5 minute gimmicks. Remember the chronicle feature? That buggy piece of shit is worthless and they never fixed it, not sure if they were expecting modders to actually develop the feature for them.

    They don't work on it because their metrics say it's one of the least used features in the game. Apparently they don't come to the conclusion that this is because it's not very good. Their conclusion was that people were vocal about wanting the chronicle but in reality don't use it.

    That is some logic for you. I remember everyone was pretty vocal in their forums about how great a proper chronicle feature would have been.

    They never even made the feature functional, how are people supposed to actually use it?

    Why not both?

    But they figured they get more money from worthless retards by selling non-European races.

    Wanted to test the POWER of my new computer by playing this. Its no ultra machine but WOW does it play nice! Blazing fast!

    Last time I played was in Way of Life. So many new features! Sweet!

    Playing as Zoroastrian Sheik of Bukhara (I guess). A bit of a hard start. Tried to independence revolt once but my fellow co-conspirator jumped the damned gun - I guess this is what happens when I don't get the Independence Faction started out myself. Would have still worked out if SUDDENLY TURKESTANIS didn't fuck up my killstack because one of my allies (who was not in this fight) had me "fighting" his silly conquest of Syr Darya.

    Held off marrying for a while because of a lack of suitable alliance partners so my character just scavenged Concunbines, including a woman that was going to be killed for beingh a witch - arrested her them put her right to work making heirs.

    Later on, my ruler got pretty cozy with a nearby with a nearby muslim emir who was nevertheless a bro who kept inviting me for random carousing until he died. Possibly the best mussulman ever. Also there was this new guy from some further east lands but it turned out he was a freaking Satanist who invinted me to heil satan all day erry day but I pretended it never happened

    Also my steward once gave me a big-ass tribute from all the rich people, but it turns out what he really did was loan money from jews lol.

    Also the realm started full of zoroastrians but they all a bunch of faggots who cucked out and submitted. Pathetic. So I claimed the lands and conquered one of them because fuck him and his cuckish life. I'm going to take down another cuck but I gotta make it fast because the last time I did something like that, liege used Realm Peace and I barely managed to squeek a conquest by before time was up.

    Some wali bellow me got pretty upty so I killed his ass and got his stuff. Right now I got 3/4 desmene, planning on getting 4/4 very soon to offset the coming Gavelkind problem. Then I probably will attack those nomads near me or get a claim on those sogdian budhist people eastwards.

    Also my lieges kept bribing me in exchange for making my daughters into their muslim wards and giving them more power in the council. Had to stop at some point, scared of having my title revoked.

    Also I once took pity on some retarded lady in the tunnels during a quarantine, turned out said lady tried to kill my ruler and chopped off his hand! She had so much intrigue I dared not leave her alive, was half in mind to take her as concunbine as revenge.

    Also my second ruler is a pretty big high-up in the kingdom, he's the Marshal of the Realm. That's good, my liege likes me for the most part. Good good, let him think I'm no threat, meanwhile I will get me a duke-level title or two.



    I'm more of a sister-wife kind of guy tbh daughter-concubines freak me out.

    Anyone had any luck with Zoros in the Charlemagne start? Its harder than Old Gods start, because there are zero independent zoroastrian rulers (except filthy manichean heretics), so you're stuck as the vassal of muslims no matter what. They will try to revoke you sooner or later.

    Its not like Old Gods start where you can at least start as somewhat strong Vandid/Gilanids who get event troops at start. Also, in this start the Abbassid Blob is even bigger, althrough it eventually fragments.

    Best start I think seems to be as a Zoro count in Bajanid, most vassals are zoros or manicheans. But fuck, you keep being assraped by those annoying nomads from time to time. Not to mention the fact your fellow vassals end cucking up pretty early. Maybe I should just go "fuck it" and try for independence early, but I'm afraid of being assraped by the Taids or Abbassids and would rather use the Bajanids as cover while I take them down from within.

    Good thing the Bajanids start with Balkh so you can grab at least one Zoro holysite if things go your way.

    So, you can't usurp kingdoms easily anymore. What gives? I think I had to completely ass-rape my liege to take his duchy.

    Also, I just realized its pretty much Seljuk time. He is supposed to attack right where my powerbase is - Khiva. When I boot it up again I need to do a search on Seljuk and do something, anything, to murder his ass. Failing that, go full bunkermode and start preparing for war. Here's to hoping he got suicided or something.

    Fuck, I wanted to take two holy sites and start washing the sunni shit out of Khiva!

    Seljuk never appeared in my game and its like year 1000 AD. Just as well, I would have gotten enriched good.
    Is Seljuk's appearance random?

    The couple of times I played early dates I remember he didn't show up. There are several conditions in the game files, one of them is that he needs to be healthy. After the reaper dlc I guess he will spawn as a conqueror even more rarely. It all falls apart if he dies, becomes a cripple, is castrated, etc. Tamerlane also never used to spawn in my late games.

    You can mod the files to increase his chances of becoming a conqueror. Give him more health, wealth and better traits.
