    Started a game as Aceh and can't recommend that country enough for someone who's familiar with the game. Basically has all the important game aspects available and rolled into one enjoyable package....

    I've been tinkering with the game a bit now and it handily beats EU3 in my book. However the same feeling of EU being a diluted mix of the aspects of the more focused Paradox games remains. That...

    I recently started playing again after being totally thrown of my game by the 1.29 changes. All in all it's a very impressive game for a F2P albeit a bit frustrating if you're stuck grinding an empty...

    Us Europeans should probably set up a game of our own. I'd be up for CK2 on most nights, I'm EEST(UTC+3) but UK schedule would work just fine. I'd prefer CK2+ but vanilla is doable as well.

    Nope, I've never fired on survivors and was never killed by one. Always fired on bandits when I felt I had a decent shot at them. Subjective experiences and what not, maybe I was lucky. I had fun...
