people lavished so much fucking praise on this game and it sold so well that paradox figured they don't even need to try to support it at this point
take a look at fucking imperator in comparison, people rightfully shat all over that title, it sold poorly and it's been getting constant dev diaries, game overhaul patches and general attention etc, because they are trying to get people to want to buy it
>>
>>421019
More like the current dev team for Imperator is made of old paradox fans turboautists that are likely almost working for free to fix the arcade map painting mana collector crap that was the original I:R, while the CK3 dev team was formed by hiring redditors that only cared about "look at this funny lesbian horse Pope kek!"

They said the team is getting bigger for a reason, and they don't want to hype people, so I will reserve my judgement until I see the "bigger" project.

Need some ideas
What kinda faith would fit the red part? Pagan faith. For a wider idea of the religion it's a part of, the idea is getting pre-exusting personifications of stuff and elevating them to being a deity. In some cases that'd be getting pre-existing gods that have been secularized and de-secularizing them.
I was originally gonna use the faith I came up with for Appalachia but I realized that obviously didn't fit, then I tried to go with a religion based around colonial America/golden age of piracy but I realized that type of flavor would work better with culture instead of religion.
I'd still like to put some nautical type characters in like Davy Jones or Oceanus but that type of stuff would work better as side flavoring for a religion rather than the main focus.

Way too many people lavished way too much praise on CK3 after launch. Now they feel like they don't need to put effort in.

In all fairness, it did deserve the praise. It's by far the most solid base game Paradox ever released.

I don't doubt that it might have led to them becoming lazy though.
>>
>>424102
They do listen to people on Paradox forums and plebbit, they've directly incorporated ideas/feedbacks from posts there and acknowledged it. So, a chance to actually have some input taken into account would be a good reason.
>>
>>424700
>In all fairness, it did deserve the praise.
No, it absolutely fucking didn't. There's a reason why all anybody ever does with the game anymore is post the characters they created. It's an extremely shallow game. It coasted in on the hype of being a sequel to a game a lot of people enjoyed and having a mechanic where you can see naked tits. It took about a month's worth of time for people to finally accept that the game was actually boring and broken.

They used all those resources to assemble more teams to make more games, and to acquire other studios that make their own shit.

It didn't all go towards getting bigger teams to work on their core titles. The improvements from base CK2 to base CK3 shows how much more resources went into it in any case.

Newfag to CK. Just torrented 3 to try it. Is 2 really that much better? Also need suggestions for current playthrough.

On the bright side, at least, you'll only need to cope for a few more years before Paradox graciously sells you back all these functions for 2x the price.

I don't have it saved but you can find it if you search an archive for it.
>>

Also, less game rules options (at least on launch I don't find option for interfaith marriages) and less start dates/bookmarks (not even counting how you could set the date in game 2).
>>
>>427570
>at least on launch I don't find option for interfaith marriages
Do you mean enabling or disabling them? Because that's handled already by hostility levels.
>>
>>427577
Enabling them. How does that work exactly? If I disable hostility, does it affect other stuff too? Because if it does then it's a shit system.
>>
>>425504
>Decide to start over and Murchad is an Insular Irish this time?
They make him Catholic in the tutorial so that it's simpler for new players. Questionable decision imo, just leads to confusion when people start over like you. This is to say nothing of the questionable historical decision to make Insular a separate religion in the first place.
>Earl Ragnvald issues
Doesn't Insular get along with Catholicism as part of the doctrine? Idk, I never played as Ireland in CK3. You can find a way to revoke him if you're having issues
>>
>>427676
Just check the religon page of the wiki. It shows what's different about different hostility levels.
>>
>>427538
>>no investiture or anti-popes
To be fair CK2's antipope was kinda shit and never got changed since launch.
I mean, anti-pope could only be recognized by the installer and there was clear anti-pope and real pope, when in reality difference between anti-pope and pope was clouded. For example the pope who made crowned Roger II king of Sicily was legally elected pope in Rome, however one of the cardinals who lost the election fled Emperor Lothair who ended up invading and installing him, and the other guy to this day considered anti-pope.
The other issue is that anti-popes cannot be recognized by other realms.

>the 769 start was absolute cancer

>china was fine as a talking head, do you really want another invincible blob on the map?
>>427993
I like that dynasty is more important, technically having a powerful dynasty gave you more prestige in 2 but unless you were a Karling or Abbasid it was not very useful. It also encourages setting up independent realms rather than one mega blob. Knights are a good idea but need more (immediate glaring flaw being the player can’t become one). Being able to romance or seduce your wife is a great feature that never made it to 2.
>>
>>427993
>Name what you think is an improvement, I can only name three or four tops, everything else debatable.
First thing that comes to mind are religions.
>inb4 it's the reason why religions are so generic
No, that was Paradox choosing to make their tenets generic to play, not an inherent problem with custom religions. I don't think anyone would complain if they made the tenets specific to one faith/group of faiths more fleshed out based on how that faith did it, they just chose not to.

The best option for CK2 was to limit its interactions to the Steppes, otherwise, you saw every Byzantine Emperor sending their daughter to the Harem and kocktowing.


Honestly I'd prefer detailed simplification of China, but kinda want more complexity like what if China interface actually showed the political situations of China instead of just saying is "stable"? If China was divided to five provinces controllers of these provinces determines what can happen, for example you could only interfact with a faction that control Eastern China

Oh, what is good about them? Removing all features from culture and moving them to religion doesn't make any sense.
Tenets are just random modifiers like in EU4.
Doctrines were already in CK2

That isn't something I was going to complain about.

I seen it, but I still wonder how full tolerance thing affects the game.
>>

I think that would be a good compromise, a little minimap showing the state of China, so if it's divided into warring states, that's reflected; if it's being invaded by the Mongols, that's shown, and so on.

according to the season pass there is supposed to be a "flavour pack" before the first major DLC
China, SEA, Japan etc. being added is definitely major enough to qualify as major "expansion" dlcs so the first one is 100% changing something that already exists on the map

Right? The game doesn't make any kinda justice for feudal, tribal, and Muslims, so why not hell should it devote its focus to completely different?

Middle class Indians speak English. Why should Paradox target the largest democracy as their market?

Persians did expand into India IRL (Ghaznavids and Ghurids). But, no Indian state ever invaded east into Burma, so it made sense just fine to cut off the map at the end of India where they eventually did in CK2.

IIRC CK3 uses some region-based multithreading witchcraft to make performance scale better with map size
I remember back after release the game’s day tick was sanic speed, and what stuttering there was happened on pause too and only on the 3D zoom levels so it was probably graphics/rendering related

So long as you’ve got a multi-core processor adding more stuff shouldn’t be as bad as it was in CK2

honestly, it stupid, why even include as part of the forum if devs themselves get butthurt from it? message is clear, the input should only be positive, I'm sure it is going to prevent people from review bombing the upcoming DLC which will cost 20€ and inlucde 3 mechanics nobody asked for, maybe they'll include a decision invite glitterhoof to your court

I guess that's one way to respond to complaints that there haven't been any game-related DDs.

What is happening over at Paradox?

they need to add the shit they had in the og start date with ck2 where you could move the timer day by day and pick different shit like the first kingdom of Jerusalem or the Latin empire
as for Satanist and societies since you can already make your own religion they should just have a negative devotion chart and let you found a anti religion of your original one

For me there is literally nothing to do in this game. Like it's just a snooze, it's only fun for maybe what? 3 hours? The only reason I even bought (big mistake) this game is because my friends said they wanted to play multiplayer. (Which never happened.)

Ooh they're adding winter, like they had in EU1. Excellent.
>>
>>439695
that's total bullshit
maybe 1% of people played in random start dates, but all the set ones have a fair amount of playability
iron century has quickly risen as one of my favourite starts, and 768 is fun sometimes for some wackyness
the only ones i really don't touch much at all are the ones post-1066, except for occasional small campaigns like playing the ottomans and things like that

anyways yeah the random in-between ones are unfeasible to maintain

No, it's fucking awful. It looks extremely squished horizontally (looking at Poland and the Baltic coastline feels very uncomfortable) and the colours are way too vivid and shiny. CK2's more matte map colour was unironically much better, and both HIP and WTWSMS made the map feel special (Pic related is the 476 start date for WTWSMS, there's just something about the map that really gets the 'dark ages' theme across).
>>
>>440082
It's only slightly easier than CK2, mainly due to them having Primogen as they should.
>>
>>447815
WTWSMS would suit Imperator far better

This game fucking sucks, I don't know how any of you could rationalize buying it after it has clearly shown even before release that it was not better than it's predecessor.
>>
>>447853
Imperator would be better if it was a bit more like CK2.
>>
>>447862
Wiz and DDRJake do. Before joining Paradox and becoming the lead of EU4
Wiz was CK2 modder, his main mod was CK2+, and DDRJake keeps streaming his private EU4 games, but seems like he is more more interested in abusing game than actually playing it.
>>
>>448060
Like what? The character CK2/3 is shit, and I don't know why people masturbate to it. Not that Imperator's is better, but sitll.
>>
>>448060
It depends on which way they take it. If the make characters a bit more interesting and made disloyalty a lot more interesting (rogue generals bringing your country closer to war, disloyal governors building private armies, etc.) then that would be great. However, I think the focus should defnitely be a lot closer to the pops/nation side of the game, and the second they make it all about dynasty and incest then the game will immediately turn to shit.
>>
>>448072
>>448089
Proper family trees and more character to character interactions and we would be gold.
What's the point of Imperator if I can't play Cleopatra, seduce Antony and burn down Rome.
>>
>>448100
>Proper family trees and more character to character interactions and we would be gold.
So, CK2/3 great character system comes down to family trees and one particular scheme?
You complain about lack of character interactions, but character interactions are very limited, most of the time you have the great options:
>send gift
>give land
>give ward
>arrange marriage
very rich
>>
>>448060
completely disagree, i wish it was more like victoria and eu4. the ck2 aspects feel tacked on and take away from the gameplay IMO
it also needs ck3's tooltip system badly
>>
>>447815
CK2 was one of the only fucking maps to get it right that Sicily is below Tunis, and then we regressed
>>
>>448119
And character traits and events too. Basically, a better integrated family tree system would actually make me care to play Imperator. I can't stand other pdox games, because they are just map painters and spreadsheet shit, characters actually add rpg/sims element to it.
>>
>>421011
I don't know what you're all trying to imply, the success of this game makes it very clear they will milk it to dust for at least a decade.
I'd be very surprised if there's a CK4 before 2030.
