• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Congrats, very impressive play. And thanks for slogging through it, that micromanagement.....

As you had a 50+ year buffer, what different trades for time would you make if trying again ?, I'm thinking along the lines of lowering micromanagement, or having the time to take advantage of X technology/idea/strategy side of things.

You have so much time left you could probably get the over extension under control by releasing vassals and have enough time left to reintegrate them and actually have a stable whole world empire. Of course clearing out those ridiculous rebels might be a problem.

I'm curious as to how the annexation of the HRE happened. All the other countries I understand, simply occupy and wait, killing any rebels as the "occupied" revolt malus grows. But wouldn't you need to beat the HRE in a multitude of wars in order to annex it all? I mean, revolutionary war is awesome and all, but it's still only a 50% war score rebate and your HRE was huge. At the very least 300 base tax in all. Did you split them up through releasing, or simply re-declaring through truce over and over? If the latter, how did that affect your overextension?
