Awesome, thank you very much!
Normally I would say you are correct. But in this particular game everything which can go wrong goes wrong so I would expect not infighting among the heathens bur rather giant three-way war with Timurids, the Horde and the Aztec. I mean even one giant war with one of them can trigger the AI and the factions like a dominos. But yes, it would be nice if the Ilkhanate have something else to do than attacking the Imperium.That is pretty much why the Timurids would be somewhat helpful to you ( atleast in the short run ). As you are the one in the middle between the Aztecs and the Tengri, they can only vent their ambitions against you ( or those poor remnants of the western barbarians ) and if there is a thing that the CK II AI can do is gangbang on the weak ( so in the moment one of them trounces your armies, the other will take advantage of that if possible ). It would be far diferent if any of them had someone else of their size to deal with ...
Anyway, by luck or design, the Khagan had the presence of mind to get the most out of the Great Holy War without having to dirt his hands ( or kill his own troops, instead of his overeager vassals ) and it would not be unexpected that he would pile down ASAP on the weakened Basileia. A most prudent and cunning man, indeed he seems
I don't remember exactly but it's more than 85% just like the Aztecs (True Faith had 100% - before the Great War of course).LoL, a lot Tengri "crusaders"... what's their MA?
For the Empire! For the Basileos! Wield the sword of the Lord and bring the War to the shores of the Heathen!
