Thread: Relative Faction difficulties?

    Default Relative Faction difficulties?

    Is there a list somewhere of how hard/easy each faction is to play? I know there's that faction list thread, but I'm looking for a simple "easy/normal/hard/very hard/Super Mario Bros with a broken A button" progression. Has anyone cooked up such a list?

    I don't think there's a list. What diff. do you want?

    Not sure, really. I sorta just like to browse through them. In my single Short game (with Savage's AI) so far I found Norway pretty simple. Ally with Scotland and the HRE, eat the Danes, eat the English, nibble on the baltic coast until you have 25 provinces. I'm looking for a similar infantry power, but hopefully in a different corner of the map.

    If you want harder then you should try with Khwarezmians, Crusader States, Byzantium, Venice, maybe HRE and maybe some Iberian factions.
    If you want medium then I suggest France, England, Denmark...
    Easy ones are Norway, Moors, Egypt...
    I don't know for all factions. I mostly play with these.
    BTW that's my opinion. Probably it depends on how good player are you.

    I've been playing since Medieval I and am still pretty terrible. How do the Scots fit in? I liked them in vanilla but they had a teensy roster.

    I think Scots are medium. Here's the link that will help you improve your gameplay :link. It takes time to read, but helps.

    EDIT: What SS version do you have?

    you could just ask us what faction you have in mind and we can comment on its strenghts, and what could it be its difficulties.
    if you want to add one to the list, i would say the Hungarians can be between Medium or Hard. and Portugal, Very Hard.

    Norway easy? I'm playing on Hard, and it's definitely not easy, they start very poor and Danish strike enough fast for the dominion of the territory.

    That's for SS6.4, not for SSHIP

    Romans in the late campaign are hard but early game they pretty easy in my opinion.
