What happened to technology debt? we couldn't see any content
There's a difference between unifying the HRE by integrating vassals, and going around conquering all of them. That's the difference I'm getting at. If you conquer practically everyone in the HRE, quite clearly that's not compatible with staying in the HRE, as opposed to diplomatically integrating them.According to your reasoning, part of the HRE mission tree is the complete antithesis of the HRE...
That's a nice fantasy... but that would mean in some cases, where trading cities were very strong and almost independent of the country they did belong to, that they should rather seperate from such countries (Poland defo, not sure what about other nations) and be a seperate entity - it could have happend that all Scandinavia would happily follow some few coastal but strong commercial cities... but I can't see a king or a queen giving up their power to some merchants and splitting up my countryculmination of their mission tree after increasing the reach of the Hanseatic League is to unite the league into a solidified political entity
Then I guess Swabia, Franconia, Lotharingia, or any of those formable tags in the HRE must all be incompatible with the HRE.There's a difference between unifying the HRE by integrating vassals, and going around conquering all of them.

Would giving them 25% CCR be better?Remember when Paradox games at least had a veneer of semi-plausible history content?
Yeah this mission tree is none of that. I could almost stand the lazy Prussia pandering , even if a Rhenish or Bavarian formed Germany would be far less militaristic.
But this mixture of Bismarck and the third Reich is almost low-key racist in it's "da evil Germans want to always take over Europe" content.
It's not like finding resources on late medieval and renaissance Germany would be difficult, but I guess anachronistically pandering to Wehraboo's and Kaiserboos is more profitable nowadays.
I'm glad I'm not the only one with this opinion.I don't have the courage to entirely rewrite why I fundamentally disagree with the German and HRE mission trees since my post was deleted by this strange bug.
They are totally disconected from the game timeline and from the political entities they try to call to mind. Germany and HRE inherit the Third Reich conquest spirit, and HRE with all those promising new mecanichs ends up with 3 unique missions as a reward. There is a real lack of imagination here after a year of development. The main focus for a united Kingdom of Germany should be Baltic area, rivalry with other european great powers (not annexing them) and economy, while HRE should focus in internal politics, France, Italy and those damn Holy Lands in Greece and Levant.
Scramble for Africa? Weird... And out of the scope of the timeline. But if so, why is this not also in French and British mission trees when they were the two main actors of this era? (Speaking about french mission tree, we have a mission called "France Antarctique" for a colony in Brazil that totally failed, but nothing about french Guyana that still exists, and same for his dutch counterpart; now independant. But for whatever reason, Austria have to colonize Australia..)
Oversimplification and memes has won the last months of development.
