Please, please, please make achievements in EUIV. Or i call Barak Obama and tell him that Sweden has more oil fields than Iran and Iraq taken together!
Seriously, if you are not able to do it by yourself, let Steam do it for you. I played EUIII more than 600 hours on Steam. Given the fact that i've known about this game and bought it only one year ago. I wouldn't spend so much time if there were no achievements. Well, at first game i conquered entire world by Russia (of course). And that's it? Why do i have to play for another country? If not achievements, game could stop at this point for me. But then i realised that there are other ways to re-play the game. I'd never imagine that american nations are not just dummies. But i did it. I conquered a half of Europe by Cherokees. And i was very pleased by that
If you will not make achievements i doubt i will buy EUIV. Know why? I bought CKII this summer. I completed one game and i have no reasons to re-play it. And no expansions or dlcs will force me to do that. CKII is buried for me.
At least in-game achievements. Come on! I still believe in you.
P.S. I know there's a lot of hipsters (hipsters mustdie, you know) who hate achievements and tell us silly stories about "mainstream" and "good game is good even without achievements". That's what i can say. Imagine that you are supermarket manager. And some of your customers are vegetarians. What will you do? Remove all meat from your market or just make some section for those who eat only grass? Think about ALL customers, not about only ones who probably die out soon (like dinosaurs and disco) :P
