Here are the full patch notes for the 1.11 patch that will be released alongside the Women in History free DLC on Sunday, March 8th.

Horde nerf? :/
You mean: "Ming neighbor nerf"? :D

Wiz said:
- Tradition and prestige gains from battles have been reworked to scale better to number of men involved in the battle.
Does this mean that prestige actually means something later on? If so: cool!
- "supported_version" now requires at least 2 version numbers (e.g. 1.10 or 1.10.*) due to far too many mods misusing supported_version=1 and causing their users to crash.
But what about graphical and music mods?
But what about graphical and music mods?

They will have to update with patches, the point of this system was to prevent users from crashing from incompatible mods every single patch.
Cool, most bugs I've noticed are fixed. Only one I don't see in the list is the weird phenomenon for second-and-on-generation custom nation rulers male rulers labelled as female with female names and vice versa.
When will the Zoroastrian religion be added to the game/designer?

We're planning to add a whole bunch of converter religions to next major patch, we want the time to actually give them some flavor.
Thanks a lot!

- Cancelling a vassal (either via diplomacy or war) now removes all cores and claims the overlord has on that vassal.
Interesting. It now actually makes sense to make France cancel its vassals early game. Usually they just ate their cores right back after truce ends.

Looting nerf is a bit meh. Not that I looted that much but the ka-ching noise plus some the money will be missed, especially when you start small.
- Now re-evaluates strength of alliances before declaring war, to prevent suicidal DOWs due to alliance situation changing in time between planning war and declaring it.
I am delighted from a gaming standpoint, and mildly disappointed from a lulz standpoint :)

- Treasure fleets getting seduced by mermaids and missing their trade capital fixed.
... can we have an event action added for modding purposes that allows us to write an event that causes treasure fleets to be seduced by mermaids? :)
