The example I want to talk about is War of the Roses for England. At any point of time, before 1500, if England lacks an heir, then the chain for War of the Roses can start, which creates a lot of interesting situations for the player, as well as giving unique historical immersion.
I can see that getting out of hand. Remember those strange screenshots threads where there was coup on coup with a dozen pretenders claiming the throne in a row.

Be sure that it doesn't expand into a giant spamming of rebels and pretenders. :)

Not so thrilled, to be honest - the risk of having a "two-speed game", were you can play the Big Eight or Everything Else, seems to be quite big. Which, seeing as a lot of people stop playing majors after a while, could have troubling proportions. Of course, this wealth of conditionals and may-be is there for a reason. Will keep an eye on this.

where did we say only "big 8" would get lots of events?

I said 8 countries are important for us... their performance is what drives the eu experience.

Nowhere - my apologies. We will have to see, then.

Sounds about right as a distribution percentage.

This is Europa Universalis.
This is the kind of reply I like: from a direct trusted source, specific, leaving no room for useless debate :).

Dynamic historical events sound awesome!

I guess mods like AGCEEP would be possible to be implemented in-game to add more historical/ahistorical events?

Question: Will there be more generic version of DHEs for other countries. For example, you have a set of conditions for the Spanish bankruptcy, but what if another country, say England, found themselves in a similar situation? Will England also get a bankruptcy event of some kind, though perhaps a bit more generic and less unique then the Spanish version?

Likewise, you have the War of the Roses, but will there be more generic succession wars as well? Not as flavourful, but still an ingame effect.

There was something like this in EU3. There was the generic revolution event which would turn your country into a revolutionary republic and the revolution target, and there was also a special flavour version of it which was specific to France and caused a tag change to Rev. France.

Yes, this is sort of what I'm thinking. Though some very specific events might have no generic versions.

B-but I wouldn't have objected to this :(
I own quite a few Paradox games, but have always found the EU series the most approachable. So, I'm glad that isn't changing.

How many provinces does EU4 have? Will it have more than EU3 or around the same? Will future EU games (many years from now) offer way more provinces (more than CK2 and V2 but less than HoI3)?
From the perspective of mods involving alternate starting conditions, more provinces = more work since Paradox changed to controlling this in individual history files per province. Wasn't so bad when it was controlled from a single scenario file, but IIRC that constrained you in normal play to starting dates that had scenario files. Anyway, due to this consideration I would not want to see an increase in provinces unless there was some particularly good improvement it depended on.

Country specific, all the texts are rather country specific, and they are unique for that country.
Will there be unique events for Ulm?

Be sure that it doesn't expand into a giant spamming of rebels and pretenders. :)
The main thing is that civil wars and coups should be realistic and not whack-a-mole. CKII really works for this because when vassals rebel they do so in a co-ordinated fashion and have a tagged AI controlling them, rather than being simply a spamming of generic rebels.

Looking good. It would be nice if Spain actually a)formed and b)formed coherent colonies, so that bankruptcy event can fire.

All Eu3 events are still in, and lots more coming. (of course, some random ones affecting mechanics not present anymore may have been cut.)
Does that include Chinese, Japanese and Korean events from DW?

Does that mean no country-specific (DHE) reformation related stuff (e.g. religious wars if France/HRE)?

To be honest I was hoping for a more "everyone can get standard event chain but some countries get an exttended event chain" type of approach with the new historical focus. I guess that would be too complex.

Pity you didn't add War of the Roses in 5.2. The Lancaster and York tags are just taking up space.

They seem to suggest that EU 3 created plausible outcomes. Oh, the hilarity.
