    Btw am I the only one that spends hours reading historical articles whenever I play this game?
    Most of my knowledge of Rus territories, Piast Poland, Muslim dynasties is direct consequence of this game.

    Hadrian's Wall and the Pyramids are now visible in the map. Oh, 2.5 is released tomorrow, if you want to continue your iron man campaigns it's better to opt out of it in Steam.

    ====
    The renders are also being previewed, including female council members.

    Any of you got 2.5 yet? Conclave seems like it adds many interesting features (though it seems to make the game actually easier, and to me it appears to copy mods too much), but 2.5 is obligatory.

    Reading what people report, it seems it all could easily be resolved with two measures:
    - Regarding shattered retreat: The distance a defeated army retreat is fixed with a distance number. So they retreat more provinces in dense areas of the map and less provinces in sparse areas of the map. All in all, they should retreat in the direction they came from.
    - Regarding coalitions: coalitions should form either around the area you annexed or among people you actually can attack. Religion should be accounted (I don't really think people cared much about the CK2 concept of culture, i.e. ethnolinguistical distinctions to make it matter here). Multiple coalitions against a realm should be possible. So the HRE annex Pomerania through Holy War and France through claimant CB? Then two coalitions could form, one for pagans, other for bordering Western realms.

    Worst update ever. The game feels now like a pale EU copy. You are not even free to betray your brother in law anymore !
    Thus us a huge let down imo. I do not know what the team is thinking about but they are destroying the essence of CK2 with their change : the personal drama

    I went back to 2.4.5 after 10 minutes of game

    You are not alone. Most of my (limited) knowledge of Central and East Europe during this era is a direct result of my gaming experience. Generally I play in one region and this motivate me to search as much info about it as I can.

    Amen. I just loaded a save game and my alliance net is gone, there's weird new alliance rules, and I have no say in anything.

    Ditto. I have a fair knowledge of the classical period and early modern but 500-1500 its been CK and EU events to a surprising degree followed by "wut? did they really...?"

    I do have to admit I am not exactly hyped with the direction that Paradox is taking CK2. They keep on adding new mechanics that don't really work and then take months to "fix" them, or then just leave them hanging around without any real use like they did with retinues.

    Seduction focus is the most annoying thing ever, though, out of all the other issues. I cannot even have my daughters come of age without them getting Lover's Pox at the age of 16 and popping out 2-3 bastards by the time they are 19.

    In my last game I changed 8 wives as a single character within a span of 3 years. Why? Because one random count on the other corner of the realm, that I didn't even know about, kept shagging them one by one. I used console to check my 5 kids and two of them are secretly fathered by him.

    Is it just me or the French-England wars are all screwed by the irrational AI behavior of France?

    Here's how they always go:
    -England lands troops in France, starts besieging territories.
    -France lands troops in England to counter, starts besieging mostly London. (why would they do that instead of defending in France???)

    ---->England occupies the land it needs faster, wins the war without fighting a battle.
    or
    ---> France rushes back to defend, gets crashed by England due to halved morale after landing, loses the war.

    In short, England wins 99% of the confrontations.

    That's messed up.
