True marcusm true. But, it's better in Crusader Kings since they brought in Dues Vult, well I say it's better actually what they did was stifle the player from over exploiting the easy annexing of Pagan states. You get a bad boy point for everything now and they took out assassinating your grandkids as an easy way to get rid of bad boy points. lol I used to keep all my daughters at home and have them marry the local males just to have a nice pool of grand kids and even great grandkids to assassinate and get my BB down. I shouldn't have bragged about it so much over there. Ole Johan nerfed it hahah. It was a stupid way to reduce bad boy points though and I'm not really upset he finally fixed that. But, he should have left assassinating other realms offspring or generals as an exception. As it is now it's harder than hell to do much with all the bad boy you get and only high piety (lord knows I'm not a very pious person in real life how do they expect me to be on in a GAME??!! LOL) or giving up a lot of your lands or giving back lands you conquered 2 for 1 in a war. Oh you can make bishoporics as well, but, all of them are sooooo slow except the 2 for 1 giving back of conquered lands and then just redeclaring war afterwards lol. Seems you don't take BB points for declaring wars just claiming territories during a war.
I'm actually anxiously awaiting a Paradox game if you can believe that! ROME:EU! Of course I'll still probably wait until it's really low priced in the bargain bin (love that Paradox still puts their games in brick n mortar stores, Matrixgames could take a lesson from that!) ;) I'd buy so many more Matrixgames if they would just let Amazon.com Sell them. hehe Amazon always has sales on most of their computer games at some point. ;) The guy at NWS at least offers the boxed versions of Matrixgames for the same price as their download here. So, I get a boxed game, the cdrom and a printed manual (when their printer isn't broke) for the same price as those that download from here pay. I like that. But, I'd still like to see some of those OLD Matrixgames for less than $20 like that Generals Edition of SPWAW Mega Campaigns. $60 for that is just silly too much as old as it is.
WE/I WANT 1:1 or something even 1:2 death animations in the KOIOS PANZER COMMAND SERIES don't forget Erik! ;) and Floating Paratroopers We grew up with Minor, Marginal and Decisive victories why rock the boat with Marginal, Decisive and Legendary?
