Some European countries still refer to Charles as Karl , it something we dealt with in the AGCEEP forums a long time ago.

I'm pretty sure they all call him with they did back then. Their localized version of Charles. Ie: Karl in most of central and northern europe, Carlos or Carlo in latin countries and Karel in eastern europe.

As far as I know only the English and French speakers use Charles (then and now). :)

Certainly, but you need to make sure the electors like you. If you annex a couple of HRE minors, you're not likely to be elected.

It's relations that make the difference. I can't remember off the top of my head which one costs more relations, but I'd guess the military annex is worse.

the HRE yet again:

1) What happens when there is no electors left? or if there is just one elector left? If you are that elector?

2) Is it possible for a catholic Japan to become emperor?

3) If the current system is not based on discrete votes from the electors, what effect exactly does having 2 rather than 1 vote do?

I actually like it the way it is. I play Austria as my favorite nation, and it takes some effort to be elected Emperor. Starting with January 1492 Scenario, I have to literally spend ALL my army of diplomats to royal marriage almost every German state there is, in order to get a chance to be Emperor by August 1493 (this is when Maximilian dies). This is also assuming that I did not attack any of the HRE member-states, and that I have not annexed any nation recently.

So even as Austria, I had to #1) behave very nicely to everyone in Europe (basically maintain an honorable reputation), and #2) I had to still make some effort to spend the majority of my diplomats raising relationships with numerous electors like crazy! Only then did I find out that my Austria had a good chance of becoming Emperor. I'm totally fine with this. =)

the HRE yet again:

1) What happens when there is no electors left? or if there is just one elector left? If you are that elector?
Since you always have +200 relations with yourself, a single elector left alone becomes the permanent emperor. If there are no electors left... I don't know. I think it ends up being random.

2) Is it possible for a catholic Japan to become emperor?
Yes.

3) If the current system is not based on discrete votes from the electors, what effect exactly does having 2 rather than 1 vote do?
It doubles the effect of that elector's relation with you.

I managed to get England elected emperor. I controlled the Low Countries, so I assume since I had that territory in the HRE and had all the other attributing factors they decided to make the English king an emperor. That was before I had to go back to being protestant... :(

If you had to "go back" to being protestant, wouldn't that mean that Mary or Elizabeth would have been elected "Empress"?

Now i know what my next game will be :)


But on the issue of a single elector left:
In my recent Pommerania-turned-Poland game u annexed all electors except Lorraine. However Lorraine didn't elect itself despite being catholic, but me (200 relations)...

Mary did get elected Emperor when I got the rep up with some of the electors. For some reason I lost it and I guess it was because when you change religions you loose rep with certain countries.
