Really? More than any other game I have found that CK2, at least, tends to be the best at destroying me when I am a complete juggernaut compared to most games. Most games have a point where once you get so far, you have basically won and it is just waiting for the game to recognize your win. In CK2, though, I find that I can have a very powerful dynasty, have almost all of Britain in my realm (and in the particular game that comes to mind, Norway as a crusader state is also under my dynasty and I think one other country), and then because politics and having my army in the wrong place, and maybe a few other issues that flew under my radar, a pretender rises up and dethrones me, and my attempts to rise against the pretender end up tearing the realm apart.In such case don't buy CK3 and its dlc if you don't like it. Don't like, don't buy.
I think chances are that CK3 will be an easy and thus boring game, just like the other paradox games, I don't really know how they can solve their games issues when it come to snowballing and it is not fun to restart just 50 years into the game because it have become too easy at that Point.
However I don't want to destroy other peoples expectation about the game but the above is the main issue I have with paradox games as well as many other games.
From what is described so far, it looks like CK3 will have those same mechanics.
I don't really have any complaints about CK3 myself as much as "why would I bother?" CK2 is such a solid game already. The hooks and favors are a nice addition, but in themselves wouldn't be worth buying a new game to me. Only thing would be if they did more with ships, then I'd be sold.
