    About Crusader Kings II
    Crusader Kings II is created by the development team behind the Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron series. In Crusader Kings II you must rule with an iron fist and win the hearts of your subjects through fear, or lead a nation through respect and loyalty—the choice is yours. Keep your alliances close, your blades sharp and your wits about you at all times - for you will need them. Sacking an army takes strength. Ruling an entire nation takes a true leader. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

    Preorder placed - on Steam - as a trial of the new patch & dlc policy. Oh, and to get what promises to be a fabulous game, of course.

    English : You say in your publishing that CKII cost 39,99 USD, but I've bought the game for 39,95€ . Why don't you made the dollars/euros conversion ? I hope this is an error ...

    Not to mention that the "wallpaper" is just an Alpha screenshot of the Arabia part of the map.

    I hope this does not sound ungrateful, but I already own Crusader Kings Complete. I expect most people who are going to preorder do. What are we supposed to do with a second copy on Steam, of all places?

    Americans don't pay taxes to EU. If you deduct the Swedish VAT from the euro price, you notice the price is about same is in US dollars.
    I prefer the term differently rational.

    Placed pre-order, first I'm getting a Paradox game on Steam.

    The difference has been talked about a lot on the forums, so feel free to do a search to see Johan and other's answers. The basics however is that here in Europe we have huge VAT and other charges, while in the states you don't. That's what makes up the difference.

    This isn't unique to PI or video games. Everything except for maybe food is like this. You just don't notice it.

    And you still focus on the letter at the cost of missing the spirit.

    I'm so in love with this game I've preordered both on Steam and GG.

    When I'm looking at the preorder thingy at steam, it's there
    (preordered on GG though, prefer that vendor, and got 2 versions of the original game already xD)
