Ah, that sucks. Never played EU4 except the initial demo, was always more interested in CK2. My management of finances in EU3 was similiar, at the time, to my management of my own personal finances at university - poor :D For a game with so much scope/big playerbase, you'd imagine they'd get the hotjoin fixed.

I'd definitely recommend a return to Stellaris if you get a chance, but as I'm also never really a big MP player, might be that it suits SP more... would you recommend EU4 for singleplayer alone?

MP players are a super minority in eu4 - the vast majority of people play exclusively MP.

So yes, I would recommend eu4. As a game I do love it - it's just the lack of proper support for MP when there's so much potential is annoying.

I'll play Stellaris if my group decides to make a campaign for it. Certainly, Stellaris MP is infinitely better than eu4 MP. Just not an interesting game to play alone imo.

EU4 MP definitely works compared to CK2, which desyncs before you even begin play. But that's not a good comparison. EU4 desyncs now too, but CK2 you were lucky if you could even connect to a game due to lack of Steam integration.

HOI 2 if it didint desync woudl be fun. If anybody has RUSE it's fairly fun online. Sins of a Solar empire works too i mean plenty of games to try.

I am doing a playthrough for CKII right now. Starting as a minor Norwegian count, I have managed to form the Empire of Britania and reform the norse faith. Additionally my family (though Christian), is on the throne of France. I need suggestions with how to proceed. What challenges or goals should I seek?

You could always play to wreck yourself. Devout non-dynasty Norse faith character in France seeking to Norse-ify France and throw your dynasty off the throne?

I think I am going to try to conquer Sri Lanka and install an Irish count there named Johnny.

Don't know if it's a good game, but it definitely reminds me of Balance of Power.

I think I saw a link to this somewhere else too! Is it early access or something?

That game is a lot of fun, but I have no idea what I am actually doing.
