Mad King James said:It's like that in MyMap, and Poland still usually wins. The difference is that sometimes the Teutonic Order manages to defeat Poland, sometimes noone wins, and most of the time Poland wins after a hard-fought war.
The Teutonic Order wasn't a cakewalk for Poland to defeat, and it was by no means assured they would win. To hand Poland an easy victory here is to do history a disservice.
OK, as you said in MyMap there are higher taxes , I checked and Chelmno has 7 Warmia 7 Masovia 10, Warsaw 6 Prussia 8.
However the rule (and I assure you that it is not mine rule) as explained two pages back is: take tax of vanilla province, split is between new provinces and add +1 tax to each province.
Due to this constraint and that most provinces around Prussia were splitted we would end with tax 4 or 5 provinces, which IMO does not have much sense. Anyway AI usually takes 1 or 2 provinces in peace deal. That is why I proposed to merge/delete Chelmno.
BTW can you explain me what does Ostrov (between Pskov and Polotsk) represent? (half of it should be in Pskov and half in Polotsk) and what has happened to Mozyr(Moghilev) and western half of Krementjug (merged with Jedysan, while after 1667 Polish border was on Dnieper)?
Edit: and on the vanilla map Prussia has tax 9 Danzig and Masovia about 10. Divide by 2 and add 1: gives 5 or 6. Say Pomerelia with Danzig is more important so will have 7 and Warmia only 5. Prussia will have 6. And then people will start: Prussia ws much more important, needs more tax, Danzig had CoT, other CoTs in western Europe have tax between 10 and 15, it should be at least 10.
I have nothing against Chelmno but I do not like idea of tens of tax 5 provinces.
