That moment when your character dies of plague...and is succeeded by a 1 year old...whose mother helps him survive the regency by having all the uncles murdered...who then becomes the greatest soldier France has ever seen...who rules his duchy for over 50 years before turning it (and most of northern France) over to his heirs. His grandson goes on the Third Crusade to free Anatolia from the Turks...he names his nephew as his designated beneficiary, because mere dukes don't become Kings of Jerusalem. The grandson gets hit on the head in the first battle and incapacitated, the ducal armies destroyed in a glorious last stand by the Turks...and when the Crusade succeeds, the rest of Christendom gives the nephew the title of King because of <reasons - perhaps they lionized the last stand? Perhaps they just hated the Kings of the HRE and France and Leon (which includes all of Spain and Britain)>... So now I have a comatose Duke of Flanders...barely 1000 men to hold my lands...and I'm rolling in gold (100x my monthly income) from the Crusade.... I just realized I could buy up every Mercenary and free Paris from the grip of the King of Aragon...(because the Capet's are terrible as Kings).

I own the game and am one of those who loaded it up for a couple of hours then shut it down. It looks sooooo cool. I plan on trying it again soon. Does anyone have suggestions as to what DLCs I should buy? I see everyone playing a modded game it seems.

Any game that allows you to have William the Conqueror become a High Priest of Satan and making Satanism the official state religion of England, leading to a series of very bloody holy wars with the rest of Europe while pious vassals try to murder you at every turn but your dark powers are simply too much for them to handle and you're slowly but steadily inducting more and more kings into your cult in order to make Satanism the dominant religion in all of Europe and... where was I going with this? Oh yeah, buy CK2, it's fucking great.
GHS CWRT (7 months ago)
So true, I remember looking at this game and being like "What? I'm not playing this, I'll stick to Medieval 2 Total War." But HOLY SHIT this game is so much more complex than what I thought it was. This game is amazing and one of the best games I've ever played easily.

Once I forged the might Pomeranian empire that stretched from the Rus to the end of lothringia and is all 100% reformed Slavic and also I controlled Bulgaria, Hungary and Croatia and was led by the Barnim “the atilla” who was immortal and genius but at the ripe old age of 502 he had died and the empire split into its respective kingdoms ruled by members of my dynasty and tried to claim the Pomeranian throne

I gave up after about 25 hours. My mistake was not role playing my character. I'm about 35 hours in giving it another shot going strong unifying Ireland, murdering and conquering those disgusting Germanic peagns while trying to kill my way to make my hier king of Scotland.

Damn, I love that ironic twist on Irish history The Brits claim us, we take revenge by using their name to conquer the world, become the monarchy they hold dear, and replace their language with ours The Republican in me is fucking trembling with excitement at the thought In other words, you've sold me

Me and my friend envisioned a game that was CK2 mashed with total war.

I find it sad that he sounds impressed with himself for playing a game 260 hours. I have 700 hours on PAYDAY 2, what's the deal with 260 hours ?

I finally learned how to go to war after 3 hours and when I did the enemy army teleported across the map and then all my people died instantly and then they teleported into my county and took it over, this game is a lot of fun

According to this video and every single review about the game, this game is just a chore. Just get Total War, preferably the newer releases. It still has political intrigue, family politics, etc. plus grand scale warfare (optional, because you can skip manual battles). And you don't have to constantly research how to play the game.
Luke Jongman (1 year ago)
You've got to pump those numbers up
Vyrex420 (1 year ago)
4800hours in gta5 lol
Joel Hicks (1 year ago)
This guy does gaming for a living but doesn't have a single game over 1000 hours? I've got 3 games well past that, and 4 of my 6 top games are Paradox games.

Hang in there. It can be a bit confusing in the beginning but after the first 1000 hours it's one of the best games ever.

The only problem I have with these kind of strategy games is economics and finance management. I have given up EU4 becuz I don't understand how finance works. Why dafaq can't I raise tax?? Although I much prefer Victoria 2
