Bohemia IS powerful, in relative strength it's at least as powerful as it was before 50 years of interregnum and civil war, who ch it really shouldn't be after that period. Bohemia was a powerful kingdom at one point but in 1444 it's a hollowed out shell.
That's totally ahistorical though yes Bohemia was the seat of emperors but that is before the interregnum, after it and after a long and bloody civil war the wealth and power that made emperors chose it as their seat of power (note none of the emperors who ruled from Bohemia were native Czechs or even German bohemians) lies in ashes.
I wouldn't mind seeing stuff for Bohemia but it got to start by recognizing where they are at, perhaps their lowest point in all of their history.
That's a fair point. A special exception could be made for Jerusalem.@Meka66 Groogy said to @ you for this:
When the knights form Jerusalem, they lose monastic order reform and get Crusader State. But by doing this they will also lose the t5 reforms that are exclusive to monastic orders like lord of the sea. Is it possible to change it so forming jerusalem as the knights lets you keep these reforms? it feels like theocratic jerusalem is intended to still be a monastic order, so it shouldnt lose it logically, and from a playing prospective it would feel terrible to lose out the unique gov mechanics just by forming the intended target formation of your country
I understand why players hate the modifier, but doesn't it serve as a deterrent for the AI? Will there be any new mechanism that will make countries not exactly desirable for direct conquest? I think it was doing it's job pretty well by protecting some nations that would otherwise get always immediately devoured by their neigbours. In the case of Bohemia it was quite unnecessary though. The country is already too safe thanks to its HRE protection, stability, gold mine, geography and power within HRE. It's very rare to see Bohemia get dogpiled. But what about the Caucasian Christians or Africans bordering Spain/Portugal?
You gonna take that back!I am tired of seeing Blobhemia.
It´s been a year since I´ve played EU 4, is that an issue? How frequent is polish failure? Maybe do something about too many rebels, they really crippled Poland and Lithuania from what I remember.That's a partition of Poland problem imo.
Poland always falls apart it's just never neat like it was historically.
They sometimes do well, not too rarely... so its not too bad. With some of the recent changes Ottomans are way more aggressive towards europe and Hungary (due to missions and claims probably.. not sure if trade node changes have something with this) and they clash with poland more often and ruin them. Ottomans are way too strong currently.. they often ruin Austria.. or siege France and kick them out of war. Big buff for them was change of Janissary mechanics (they were made into special unit).. so they don't lose their army bonuses like they did before. Main culprit for weak France.. Austria or Poland is terrible AI that can't defend.. Interestingly, Ottos are fat from the getgo so they have mutliple stacks and in general defend much better than any other nation.It´s been a year since I´ve played EU 4, is that an issue?

Rebuilding well is not the same as being a superpower ready to pounce on the rest of the HRE.Bohemia during the reign of George of Poděbrady was doing very well https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiří_z_Poděbrad. And he was elected by the nobility and was one of the best rulers of Bohemia and he wanted to unite Europe for the Turks first. Prague considered the cradle of alchemy. There is a cloud of things that could be done there for Czechs as events (Jan Amos Comenius).
Do they become a superpower more than once in a hundred games?Rebuilding well is not the same as being a superpower ready to pounce on the rest of the HRE.
So.... wait.The new rules for where you can create Trade Companies are as follows:
- Province religion must be of a different religious group than the owning nation
- Province must be considered overseas both from nation and any subjects of nation, not including tributaries.
- Province must not be part of the HRE
Podebrad has too big stats. . I hope this content is about Utraquism and Bohemian game of thrones in 15-16 century.I'm not, I love Bohemia. Seriously though we've gone given them quite some content, but don't think we've neither buffed nor nerfed them. They're a good "what if Austria wasn't emperor" country for the player.
Anyway, how about something like this (and sorry, this post is a bit disorganized...)?:I am looking a bit towards if I can make the Min Autonomy in Territories a bit more of a relevant and interesting feature. What we want is that you have to make decisions on not only where you expand, what you conquer but also how you organize that development you just gobbled up.
Portugal, that is supposed to be THE naval power until half the 16th century at least, got a underwhelming navy buff. Dont expect much.But did you consider buffing other underdog naval nation? Please consider buffing Norway, it is meant to be naval power.
