Your suggestion of further weakening Hungary is nonsense. Actually Hungary is probably one of the countries, which was already weakened way to much (for the sake of game-balance????) compared to the real historical situation of 1419. Paradox included an independent Transsylvania (which obviously did not exist), the same for Croatia, they put it in the orthodox tech-tree, and above all just take a look at the cultural settings only 3 out of the 9 provinces (not to mention Transsylvania) have other culture than magyar, which is really a joke, as the majority population was indeed Hungarian at that time.
Furthermore, no matter what happens Austria is inheriting Hungary in 1526 anyway (which is again, quite ahistorical) thus I do not really get it.
True the Turkish AI is not performing that brilliantly, but for God sakes, You should not weaken other countries in order to make them look good. As the saying goes: "Two wrongs do not make one right".
Besidedes, I am still puzzled about the original intentions of the game designers. I thought, here You have a game, which tries to represent the real historical situation of 1419 (in Hungarys case oobviously not) and allows us to replay the what ifs of history. As far as I understand it, this game was not designed to replay history as it happened, but let us choose some alternative scenarios, if possible.
My 2 cents,
Hungary nearly always performs much better than what it did historically. Hence they should be made weaker.
