I'm writing this with a "unsatisfied" feeling about myself. I've just gone from being the Duke of Lancaster to King of England through a cheap and easy plot against a King who could of probably crushed me in a fight and all because I sent him a letter!!! My God! The word truly is mightier than the sword.
Are plots such as this too cheap and easy? A King giving up his Kingdom because somebody asks him? I only had one backer .. a single county Duchess ..
Can anybody explain how "Plot Power" is calculated? Upon instigating the plot I had a 102% plot power score and it only took, as mentioned, 1 Duchess who already had a green thumbs up when I looked. How is that 102% come up with? I was in control of 5 English Counties - does that get taken into account?
I honestly feel deflated. it kind of makes you wonder why bother starting as a Count or a Duke as the game seems to be just waiting for the first opportunity to make you King by almost thrusting it down your throat when you open the Ambitions / Plot window - "here! here! Pick me! Pick ME!!!!!"
So - is "achievement" too cheap and easy through plots as they stand?
