That should work, yeah. It was designed along the mindset of releasing London as a Trade City, but script-wise, once a mission has been rewarded it can't be reverted to my understanding.
Doesn't the idea of giving away half of the trade power of a souped-up London fill you with pain, though? Whenever I play merchant republics (Portugeuse MR best MR, btw) I only ever make trading cities in the most out-of-the-way backwaters I can, so I get the trade steering bonus without them eating into my profits or starting wars.

The mission reward is a modifier on the trade node itself, not the province of London.

The new mission tree seems like imported from HOI4, please give Germany more diplomatic missions like Austria reciewed, not those "lets conquer all of Europe as the German Empire, even if we explicitely do not claim to be the Roman Empire". It just makes no sense, the missions right now are a weird mixture of Wilhelms II. ambitions and Hitlers fantasies with some industrial development.
I think the German missions should be based on a more historical plausible outcome of a German unification in this time: not by the monarchs, who deliberately tried to maintain their privileges thus preventing any unification, but by the people. Nationalism was whide-spread by students and other intellectuals, but not by the nobility. Maybe revolutionary minor German tags should be given the option to break out of the HRE and form a German Federation instead, handle it like the Dutch rebellion maybe?

I like the mission tree for a united HRE tag though, because it is destined to unify Europe under the new Imperator. The German Mission tree on the other hand should be a counter-mission tree to this.

Lol, I can't read. Still, London has both a centre of trade and an estuary. That still seems like a lot of trade power to share. I wish there was more benefit to having your trade cities actually be good at trading. I'll wait and see how the switch from "20 state provinces or screw you" to "Governing capcity reduction" feels.

I had this funny idea. Could one of the conditions be demanding either "Humiliate" or "Show strength" in a peace deal from England or Great Britain as Lübeck?

Neat. Are the massive claims for Germany based on the conquests during WWII? Also, where in Africa and Asia does Germany need to put its colonies? Lübeck looks cool, definitely giving them a run when Emperor drops, after Provence of course.

So considering you are okay with an early Germany.

What about an Early Belgium.

I've set up a suggestion in the suggestion forums where people went in deep discussion about it, but now that Germany is even more focussed on the later unified german state under Bismarck it seems to give some reasoning for a Tag for Belgium.

Yeah man crazy how you want Belgium, they allow us to make German Empire which wasn't even a thing until 1871 but the formation of Belgium was 1830 and that many people disagree what logic lol
