    MM is very different from EU3 so it won't really help you learn the game. EU3 is very good and worth getting though.

    I suppose i should have called this thread how different is MM from EU3, but why is it so different

    One's a grand strategy game about the late medieval period transitioning to the early modern with nationa building, colonisation, religious strife, trade and exploration all featured. The other is... quite similar!

    Get EU3. Great game for starters and can be picked up cheap. I expect the differences between MM and EU3 will be more obvious, and much more profound, to veteran players where those new to the series may be more aware of the similarities.

    I get the impression MM is much more about the trade and politics side than the war and whatnot but then again i could be wrong

    My suggestion would be to compare the EU3 manual (which you are getting with the EU3 game) and then compare it to the MM manual which is available in the sticky in this subforum.

    Where to start! It's a much more complicated adapiation of EU3 focusing on histroical plausability. Each aspect of the game (including war) has layers added to it. Personally I love playing a mediteraninan country and facing the Berber pirate evnt chains. Or playing as The Knights of St John has been vastly improved. So, so different to what you get in EU3. If you get EU3 make sure you get all the expansions as the base game is a pale shadow of the "final" game. Then you can play MM the Mod anyway.

    Enjoy.

    considering MM was a EU3 mod, yes they are very similar in their core gameplay, meaning, a lot of the concepts you will learn and see in EU3 are also integral part of MM. So I do recommend you getting EU3 now with all the expansions (or at the very least, up to HttT).
    There is a difference in the 'difficulty' of the games. EU3 is easier, you can (with patience) conquer the whole world. In MM it's almost impossible because, even though the gameplay is very similar, the 'numbers' are quite different.
    So do get EU3 and play your first game as Castille, you won't regret it

    IIRC it has all the expansions together, but MM works only up to Heir to the Throne and not with Divine Wind.
    Officially EU4 (but not Euro) skeptic.

    Chronicles has all the expansions, but only lets you install DW. I would buy EU3 complete and get HTTT and DW separately if you want to play the MM mod.

    I would just by EU Complete and only ever play MM on it.

    EU3 is much better game with all the expansions. There are other mods that can be played instead of MM.

    No it's not. The game seems to exponentially get more ridiculous with each expansion. Divine Wind is just fuster-cluck like no other, what with a Bohemian horde spreading out across Asia and Ming ruling everything in the East. They destroyed the game with that, and I can certainly say that if the OP wants preparation then DO NOT play Divine Wind. The two games, even the mod, provides an entirely different experience. And MMP2 is my favourite out of MMU and MMP2.

    It's just my opinion, it depends on what you want to buy the game for. Personally, I believe that your money would be better spent elsewhere (waiting for MM release), but then again I absolutely detest playing a full game of EU3 without the MM mod. There is a reason why hardly anyone completes a full game of EU3 vanilla. If you care for a mildly frustrating experience with very little reward then play Divine Wind. If you care for an incredibly challenging experience, with a ridiculous amount of frustration when something goes wrong but quite possibly the most rewarding gameplay when you achieve your objective then play Magna Mundi the mod with EU3.

    So just to see, if i bought Heir to the Throne (or whatever was the one before Divine Wind) would i also get the full game with it or would i have to buy the full game as well as it, to me it seems like getting chronicles and then another mod with it seems like the best choice
