I have been putting hours into Crusader Kings 2 and i enjoy it quite a lot. i was talking with my friend and he mentioned how he was gonna take over Scotland easy with some mercs due to his economy. I asked him what he was making a month and he said 20. I though man that seems low to get any mercs worth mentioning to take a Kingdom. Then i thought and he confirmed Scotland is in constant civil war, but this still seemed off. Then he said he just places his merc squads on the area he is going to attack and then declares war afterwards. So basically he setup to insta blockade places making war not even a battle. I mean that is like punching a kid in the face before he buys the candy you want to steal, so you take his money instead to get the candy.
Either way this would make war really simple to never lose accept to larger nations like the HRE or ERE. I tried to explain that just takes the fun out of everything to have zero challenge. He told me he is just awesome and will be supported in this from the forums. Id like to think people like a challenge and wont support him.
Any thoughts on this?
