The AI does use Great Power mechanics. They also use Threaten War, albeit rarely.
Just out of curiosity, are AI's usage of Threaten War moddable? I'm curious to see how others players could tweak AI diplomatic behavior.

Another question I have thought up belatedly of now:

@DDRJake : How will the Intervene War option relate to the wars of religious league? Are late entry by a GP into these wars allowed provided conditions are met? So far, I haven't heard any restrictions on type of wars allowed for this option to be used.

I know, I know, I'm quite late to this party, but ...


Before we address the shiny options and bonuses available to you, let's tackle the question of how to become a Great Power. As we had mentioned in a previous diary, the technology system is getting an overhaul and the Great Power mechanic will make use of this too. Your ranking as a Great Power depends on your Total Development plus half of your Subject Development, then divided by your tech cost. This ensures that early game, large powers such as Ming and Timurids will enjoy Great Power status but as Other powers rise and they lag behind with embracing new institutions, this status will be lost. Of course, If Ming, for example, stays united and forward thinking, they may not lose this status at all. Subject Nations cannot be Great Powers
Does this mean Merchant republics are likely to never be a great power?

Trade Leagues are not subjects, the MR itself is more or less limited to 20 provinces. The only way I see for a MR to become a great power would be to dismantle every big country so they are just the biggest under a lot of small ones.


If it really is this way, could you please consider changing this so that Trade Leagues count as subjects for the process of determining a great power?

Trade Leagues are not subjects, the MR itself is more or less limited to 20 provinces.
The MR itself is limited to 20 state cores.

It can own as many provinces as it likes as long as they're in territories rather than states.

Oh didn't know that, thought I can only have 20 counties total. Still, as a MR you won't likely have regular subjects but your trade league. So you still lose a lot of potential great power points
