Crusader Kings II Let's Play!

Crusader Kings II Let's Play!

  • We will be taking the forums down for scheduled maintenance on Thursday, February 25th 2021 At approximately 4PM CST / Friday, February 26th 2021 Midnight UTC. This downtime is estimated to last up to 2 hours.
  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Thanks very much. There's far more information coming out lately, so thanks to those of you making the lets plays/previews and also a thank you to Paradox for allowing us more information :).

it's still in beta though. i've noticed the game has changed a bit in the last preview video from other previews i had watched previously.

Nice video
I'd like to point out that the reason you didn't go to war at the beginning against Catalunya and by extension got the dishonored alliance modifier was because when the call to arms comes up you accidentally hit decline instead of accept since decline was on top.

Was going to point this out. Perhaps they should move accept back to the top? We'll get used to it in time but I'd assume the OP isn't the first to do this :).

Hi everybody, I'd doing a LP of Crusader kings right now and I thought this would be an appropriate place to share it. Any whoo, Part one has finished uploading but might still be processing. The next part will be up sometime during this week. Hopefully I won't have a cold then.

Thanks for the LP! Can't wait for the next episode!

i think the vassals dislike you because you imprisoned that woman which gave you a tyranny opinion modifier (i might be wrong though)

I imagine that imprisoning a relative (the players sister I think it was) is not going to endear you to your vassals.

I should also point out that you (the makers of the Let's Play video) were using the De Jure Kingdom screen to choose your character at the start. So it was showing you nations you can't actually play (like the Turks).

Other than that, I quite enjoyed it. Thanks.

I do not mean to be rude, but why do previewers lately have to be quite the hectics. Abusing the mousewheel spastically fast to constantly zoom in and out gives me a headache. Zipping back and forth with the mouse cursor so you can't see the important tooltips is mildly annoying. I do not understand why the mouse hand needs to be in constant motion to perform point and click maneuvres.

Thanks for the good resulution of this long preview though, Mr. Zone.

I haven't had the opportunity to watch the entire video yet but it seems you have chosen a nice starting point. Leon should be fun to play. Lots of room to expand against the infidel, and nicely sized kingdoms near you.

I don't know how the start setup is, but in reality the King of Castile, King of Leon and the King of Galicia fought each other with the King of Castile coming out on top and then dying, with his brother, the King of Leon inheriting everything. It would be fun if those brothers had claims on each other so they would fight each other like in reality.

This was very awesome, I like fast-paced Let's Plays, I'm fine with just pausing if I want to see something a bit more closely. Can't wait for the next part!
