I really hope this gets coupled with ways for smaller nations to band together against great powers. In rl, if someone got to strong, everyone else tried to push them down again to avoid getting overwhelmed - after all, even if they're not attacked NOW, they're somewhere else on the list. I'd really like something like that in this game to make the lategame more interesting. Being a great power, especialy being the greatest great power, should be hard, but rewarding.

Because currently OP nations aren't OP enough.
To be honest, this game already boosts minor nations too much. Overextension, monarch points, states, independent nation boni, all things to boost small nations while big nations only have their provinces to counter that. I think this is a well-needed boost to nations too big to be treated like your average minor.

Great powers could be really cool with the bonuses if you got to have some agency in what kind of policies you would have towards your subjects, for example tolerance vs. subjugation either giving you accepted culture or convert culture bonus.

Break Alliance – This will force a nation to break its alliance with another. They will accept if the target nation is sufficiently afraid of you and you will gain a truce with the nation you force this upon. Useful for stripping your war target of pesky roadblocks.
Can you do this to allies of Great Powers?

Will the ally of the target experience any relations drop with you or its former ally?

PDS games always borrow from one another. With that said, EU borrows its features to other games more often than from them.

I love everything except for the exclusion of the HRE. You need to address and integrate it into the system because a good portion of fun play revolves around the HRE and being part of the HRE should not disqualify you from being a GP. Princes should give you some sort of bonus and being an elector as well as the emperor should give you a bonus towards being a GP.

When granting a minor power monarch points via "Influence Nation", does it cost you monarch points?

I'm very interested in the new diplomatic actions, but I think, new boosts like the Prestige Decay are unnecessary - Great Powers are powerful enough without these. But let's see what'll happen. Till now, most "bad" features introduced turned out to be great, or at least tolerable.

I think this is a well-needed boost to nations too big to be treated like your average minor.
Just the ahistorical stability blobs have is more than every boost small nations have.
And let's not forget that this GP boosts will stack on the lucky nations boosts.
It won't be in this expansion that i'll update the game from 1.15.
