Like others i own most of CK2, but haven't been able to get into it. It always looks cool when other people are playing it, but no joy for me so far. When watching other people play it just seems like some cool gaming stories are being told, just not when I play.

In fact I own a few paradox games, HOI 1,3,4 and Vicky 2, Steel Division 1, CK 2 and it's the same story with all of them. Maybe I should take a hint. I'm defiantly done with HOI and Steel Division but might try again with Vicky and CK 2.

All this talk of CKII got me playing again.

This time started as the Petty king of Wessex in England. 150 years later I'm now the King of England, Wessex, and Wales... although I only control the lower half of England proper. All the other petty Kings had themselves devoured by Denmark! So now I'm plotting how to get that land back but the King of Denmark can call on 25,000+ troops with vassals and allies to my 8,000+... not a fair fight at all.
Just participated in a successful Crusade against the Muslim control of Aquitaine which netted me $3000 coins and 2 artifacts. The money will go towards new towns and mercenaries when the fight with Denmark comes..... sooon…  :knuppel2:

It's all what you make of the game. You need to set goals and then scheme and plot and attack to achieve them. You need to watch what is happening to your neighbors so you can profit from their misfortune or help them out to gain their favour. You definitely cannot sit and wait for things to happen because they will but not how you want.

I look forward to purchasing it in 10 years, when the game is fully patched, and I can choose which DLC I want to get.

Most of the of the DLC features in II are implemented in III's release. However, I am with Martok on this. I haven't gotten the mileage out of CK II as I should, because at the time my Older PC was (when I was a 46) had problems with some features, but that was easily tweaked in settings or in the config.ini file (?) My new machine is more than capable.

That said, a lot of my problem was and I hope to the gods they don't do this with III, is the DLC spread. They seem to have slowed their roll with HOI IV, and Imperator a bit. They really need to make sure this launch is good. Period. 

Price tag isn't bad, though. However, I am patient.  Shadow Empire is soon.

fyi: just saw it for $44.49 (pre-order) at Greenmangaming.

Personally, I'm going to give this one a pass.  I never play CKII, though I still pick up any of the occasional DLC freebies.  Maybe one day after CKXX comes out...

Won't be getting this either. Have eu4, ck2, hoi4 and Stellaris with a bunch of dlc for each of them. More gaming content than I'll ever get through in what's left of my life.
