Anyone know how long it took Steam to implement the 5.0 (and previous) patches? It's now been more than a week and still no 5.1 on Steam, and since it's getting into the evening on Friday, I suppose we'll have to wait until sometime next week to see it.
I did what some others said and created a copy of my EU3 Steam folder, and applied the patch to that, but for some reason my auto-saves are being quirky. It's set to save every month, and sometimes it does. However, as of right now I have one correct auto save, one auto save that's 3 game-years old, and a third one that never got created.
It sure does seem like the Golden Horde is overpowered now, they've gobbled up a significant portion of Lithuania, basically bankrupted me (Muscovy), and vassalized Smolensk, Pskov, and the other one or two nations that Lithuania had to release.
