My little review.

Armenia is - along Georgia - the weakest NI set for me, but I am still happy Caucasus has some love ;)

Wales is IMHO a bit... unnecessary. It is two prov tag which almost never exists nor has any significance + it's ideas are quite meh. Stability Cost Modifier: -20.0% is the best here, other than that: no miliary neither trade nor naval bonuses, no clear focus.

Guarani ideas are okay and I am happy they are represented in EU4, although nothing too crazy here. Infantry Combat Ability, MP and Tolerance are the best here.


HOWEVER!

:0000000 this is by far one of the most unique countries in Americas. Cavalry Indians of Argentina - I really like them.




Although I am still nervous about Mutapa, Kilwa and Khmer...

Indeed, I think the +1 Attrition and Increased Coring Cost should be bumped up to the front of the list so they can at least have some help surviving before getting some usage out of the economic ones.

Christ, when I have checked wiki I have discovered Armenia existed pre - AOW. And I have never ever ever seen it myself or on any screenshoots (and have viewed hundreds of Strange Screenshoots from their thread).

Which along these ideas being not - so - good means we will never see Armenia unless player intervenes in Caucasus :p

Wales :D

I'd still like to see more ideas for South-East Asian nations though. There's still some decent sized countries without ideas. Lan Xang particularly stands out.

Those Hausan ideas have some very nice synergies! Go diplomatic ideas and economic ideas and add plutocratic and trade. You will be set up for building a diplomatic-, trade- and building-focused empire of proportions! This could make for a pretty unique style of play. I love it!

Particularly Guarani and to a lesser degree Charrua is also having some good things going.
