Well now I see why Persia was never an Empire again, because Ottomans were lagging.
However if seriously, tried to play a game as Persia, at ~ year 1704 ( already not even those 300+ turns games ( And I am playing with 4 turns per year )) , during the nations turn , Ottomans took 2-3 mins to pass , at 1705 managed to finally make a trade agreement with them and saw the problem that whole Anatolia region is literally crowded with 1 unit armies, no wonder it takes so long for the AI to process that. Now we all were there and done that , but is there any way you guys can recommend ( besides declaring war on them ) to get thru that lag without restarting the campaign? Thank You.
P.S. Whats with forums? Where is the good old layout? Am I missing something?
