The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I don't want to be the crisis, but I want to fight it. It would be nice if I could create a civilization specially designed to play this role (I could give it some technological advantage from the start, for example).
You people forget that there's also the option for the galactic custodian, which was NOT shown. I expect it to have a similar tab with options and/or mechanics.I know that the forums are mostly populated by fanatical purifier players, but the data of average players that was presented some time ago indicated that the most popular ethics is Xenophiles.
Anything for them in this DLC?
So go kill the thing that is going to destroy it if you sit pondering your navels.
From a pure gameplay perspective that would make some sense, but less so if your empire has had some degree of Pacifism all game.
"We never could hurt anyone; it's not within our nature(/nurture?). Now go forth and set out to the Commonwealth of Man and slaughter every last one of it's inhabitants, it's the only way to be sure!!"
I get that, and I agree with you.In this case, Winning is still about staying alive so it's different .
Also, that's how you see the thing but Pacifism includes self-defense, and in Stellaris, Pacifists can still fight during a Defensive war.
It's a defensive war
What a pointless thing. I guess there's some desire for it as there seems to be a desire for anything in a large enough populaiton, but Fanatic Purifiers, Devouring Swarms, and even just regular empires who achieve the capability of launching a total war (hello colossi!) are already the same basic threat to the galaxy in player hands.
Sure, they don't get the super-special "evil goals", but since those goals include "destroy other empires" and "destroy enemy ships" they will play the same.
