Trying to do a world conquer and had some strange luck. I never played a mayor power before (previous games were, holland/minamoto/hansa/pommerania)
Force PU'd aragon, france, england and scotland in the first 20 years. I defeated england by first PU'in scotland and planted my entire army in edinburg.
When england scotland and aragon got inherited, i got overextention (i dont core for some reason) and i had a lot of infamy because i had "Italian ambition" so i decided to do some diplo.
I diplo-PU lithuania and norway, which was awesome and i inherited 2 german states. I also took venice and antwerpen FOR THE COTS!!
Ow and the middle east has been that way for about 20 years. First ottomans occupied everything in mamluk... both got insane exhaustian, and then everybody is occupying both of them.
It ruins my middle east expansion.
