Woah that clip is the first time I see Mitoe not writing an absolutely gramatically correct and complete sentence.

EU4 PLZ SEND HALP!

I am playing my first game and I have trouble with institutions. I am Spain in the year 1560 and the Printing Press institution triggered around 1550. For me it only triggered in one province, and the projected date is 1610. Question 1: If I do absolutely nothing, will it finish in this province in ...

Re: Why is hand cav considered good now?

Cav switches are good in situations where your opponent can’t kite, like when they’re fighting near walls or near resources that they need to defend. That’s the real reason cav switches are better later in the game; you can only kite so far before you hit a wall or a group of vills you need to defe...

Re: Why is hand cav considered good now?

Vet hussars as dutch are awkward. Your stable is quite taxed because ruyters train relatively slowly. In skirm goon vs skirm goon cav usually isnt great, although cav switches can still be efficient. But there are only a few true skirm goon civs: france, dutch, iro and thats it. Brits have longbows...

Re: Why is hand cav considered good now?

People usually start skirm goon, but then most of the time there's a cav switch. I wouldn't ever make only skirm goon the whole game. But some people do Is it better to make cav late than early because it's harder to micro later on with a lot of units? Implying that if people had god micro, just sk...

Why is hand cav considered good now?

Just a few years ago, you would NEVER see vet hand cav with civs like Dutch, Port, and I think even France made cuirs more rarely. As I recall it was common knowledge that skirm + goon > skirm + goon + huss. I even remember a French mirror between Blackstar and 609 where blackstar said "I lost ...

Re: Is creeping treasures cheating?

Just to add a devil's advocate point here: if somehow creeping was never discovered and then a player did it on stream, I think everybody would freak out: "WTF, that guy is taking like 3 more treasures than the opponent and not taking any damage, that's so unfair! It breaks the balance between ...

Re: Is creeping treasures cheating?

I'm not sure though, I could see that guardian behaviour being intentional; how else are you supposed to tackle so many treasures on the map? I think the developers intended bigger treasures to be something you take with your army later on. Even though we know 80f won't impact the game very much 6 ...

Is creeping treasures cheating?

I recently found out that there is some crackshot bug which allows you to get treasures more easily. I stopped to think for a second: isn't creeping technically a bug too? I think to be fair, the guardian should chase you all over the map, or it should reset immediately after you leave its range. Bu...

Re: Timelimit

Double pressing the same key is just awkward for the fingers tho... I agree with the space bar :); I use q for idle vills. My thumb is always on or very close to the space bar so it's fast.

Increasing the xp penalty isn't really an option because it makes germany be even more reliant on TPs. Currently, if you didn't get a decent amount of xp in age 1 by killing treasure guardians or getting an xp treas or whatever, you don't have a shipment ready upon colonial on a no TP map as german...
