Please refer to following video for my reaction:

I was a bit worried when that link was orange. But my reaction was pretty much the same.

Only way Paradox could be more certain that they'll be getting more money from me would be Hearts of Iron IV. It would be the only one missing from my collection... for a while.

I'm not sure what to think. On one hand, EU3 introduced me to Paradox games... on the other, CK2 is what I really wanted and I have that and am completely happy with it.

It's certainly not an insta-buy for me, but after I read some dev diaries, maybe. And given that they have a year to write dev diaries...

Yah, it sounds like minecraft with content, you have obviously missed the point, people dont like content, they like different coloured blocks.
Seems to work fine with my copy. As soon as I loaded the human caravan came by and the world burst into fire.

If I have a better pc when the game is released, this will be an instabuy. I'm fairly sure it will be as polished as CKii so I'm not worried about getting some half-ass semi-beta game :P

Oh man, EU4?

I'll be watching this. I spent so much time on EU3.

Unknown to most but the insane and the mystics, Tarran is actually Earth itself, as Earth is sentient like that planet in Avatar. Originally Earth used names such as Terra on the internet, but to protect it's identity it changed letters, now becoming the Tarran you know today.
Quote from: Ze Spy
Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

YEEEESSSSS!!!


But just a little nitpick.

Have more than a thousand historical leaders and over 4000 historical Monarchs at your disposal.

The articles seem to be mentioning this detail quite a bit. Now, if this just means that there's a historical mode, then that's all fine. But what if it means rulers are restricted to historical ones? Probably an unfounded fear, but its possible.

Probably. I can't imagine how that would work for nations that historically ceased to exist within a few years of the game start.

Historical leadership was optional in EU3, I don't know why they'd change it now.

I just hope they don't neglect East vs. West's development because of this. Everyone knows Europa Universalis has always been Paradox's lovechild.

Isn't East vs West being done by the Arsenal of Democracy team? It shouldn't have any effect on that.

And normally I wouldn't be concerned at all because of that, but this is Europa Universalis. I could see all the teams falling on it in a heap of sweaty development without intending to.

I want it to have the depth of combat of HoI3, the economy and population of vicky 2, and a trade system and colonization system of the gods.
