I've seen Britain in like 1 game conquer Malaysia but that was after dharma I'm pretty sure.It's actually totally the opposite, though. Pips are marginal while having military idea groups is everything.
In addition, there was never a point in the game where the AI ever made conquests of considerable degree in Asia. National idea power creep has very little to do with the AI being somewhat passive, even against extremely technologically inferior nations. I've been playing since 2014 and never before have I seen a European make headway in South Asia.
Additionally, the one area they do make considerable gains in (Africa), it's actually to an an unhistoric degree.
People are fingering the wrong issue for why Europeans do not expand in Asia much. They never did very much, even before institutions leveled the technological playing field (on a trivial level, as I stated).
It's more player vs AI where I want it to be more a push over to conquer than out of a desire for AI to historically conquer the east
AI won't be able to conquer the east because it lacks the ability to use its navy well as a player would
