Godamn, Crusader Kings 2 is hella hard need some tips

#1TheChosen0ne-Posted 9/1/2013 9:17:14 PM
Can you dudes post videos and or links of sites that would help someone who don't know wtf they're doing? I got a headache trying to figure out what to do in Crusader Kings 2. Also are War of the Roses: Kingmaker, Warlock, Dungeonland, Leviathan: Warships, The Showdown Effect, Europa Universalis 3 and Magicka any good? And which game out of those should I play first?

IMO, not only should you NOT install The Showdown Effect, but you should wipe it from your memory and forget it's very existence. My most hated game in my Steam collection. The only game I regretted instantly. I'm sure there are fans out there, but man do I hate this game.

Truth be told its the easiest paradox game to get into.

I advise to start with Ireland on the 1066 start and choose the count of Dublin as he inherits Leinster on his father's death. Make sure you set your marshal to train troops and improve your holdings then try to fabricate claims around your neighbours. As much as possible, avoid making tons of unnecessary titles since you could be penalised when you are holding a lot of duchy titles (your vassals would hate you!).

As much as possible place vassals that have the content trait and never ever place anyone that has the ambitious trait. Ensure to have your succession laws working to your advantage and it takes time to change them. Avoid gavelkind and go with either elective or primogeniture.

Please also visit CK2 forum on paradox as there are tons of great people there that would help you and please feel free to PM me here or there as I would try my best to help you learn this wonderful game.

War will happen... I always end up hiring mercs and winning though...

Not sure if this is ideal and what most people do, but it's the only way to stave off some of the bigger ass-hat rulers.

Maybe it's just because I've played so much of it, but I've always felt eu was the easiest to get into.


I always feel like I'm missing something when I play CK2.

I also learned EU first but I guess what really made it easy was the way paradox really sort of smoothed out a lot of things and how easy it is to access information. I am not that good with CK2 as well but I reckon there are some aspects that are easier in CK2 and some aspects that are easier in EUIV. The thing in CK2 is that I would say its more lenient as losing a war would not mean that its game over whereas losing a war in EUIV means its game over.

Waging war and getting big is easy in CK2 however holding your empire is a hard thing to do while EUIV, its harder to wage war as you could get penalised from any annexations you would get and thus become a target for a coalition (those things are nasty!) but its easier to deal with rebels and internal struggles unless you triggered the times of trouble events (or something as nasty as the war of the roses for England!).

Best part about learning either CK2 and EUIV is that paradox game engine is more or less the same and you just have to learn the mechanics from every game like the monarch system in CK2 or the system in EU and Vicky.
