CK3 is fantastic and will soon enough be far superior to CK2. But you can tell its gonna be a year or more of buying DLC before its worth it to make the switch.
One year? Doubt so. CK3 hit corporate jackpot. Look at the 92% approval rating on Steam.
And all for what? What, really, did CK3 do better than CK2? We know there are graphical upgrades, more stability, but mechanics wise there isn't much new. What is new can modded into CK2 and surely the players know that too.
No, I believe the new Stress system is the biggest difference. It can't be modded into CK2, and roleplay wise it's a very big deal. So much so that 92% of buyers are willing to give up 8 years of DLC just to have it. I mean, look at all the modders over at CK3 working overtime to cover what Paradox did in 8 years. They're desperately trying to make CK3 an actual history simulator because at the moment it simply isn't one.
If I am Paradox, I will take my time and sell the same DLCs back to you. Slowly. One at a time. Over the next 8 years. LOL
