It's been a while since I played, and I'd love to go back to it but A)I can't remember all the nitty gritty details and B) It's probably changed a lot in the last two years or so since I played.

I go through that with all of the PDox strategy games, I play them a ton in spurts, then don't touch them for a few years. They usually have changed significantly in the interim, and because the games have so many arcane features to begin with it usually takes a bit to get back into the swing of things.

EU4 and CK2 are probably their two titles with the most feature bloat, so this problem is even more pronounced with those titles.

This is one of the DLCs I am excited about.  Won't be able to pay for a couple of weeks, but looking forward to hearing what you think about it.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

I like the idea of Novgorod being interesting - it feels like it should be :hmm:
Let's bomb Russia!

Zanza

Novgorod didn't get new content from the DLC though, only indirectly from the new patch (estates, government reforms).

I was too tired yesterday to start playing, but probably will play today or tomorrow. 

The early feedback on reddit is rather positive.

It's got quite good reviews on Steam.

OttoVonBismarck

Yeah, it is getting quite good feedback on Reddit as well. In regards to Novgorod the big change (I guess from 1.34) is the "Great Veche Republic", which allows Novgorod to keep its government form when forming in Russia. In the previous base game the big hit on Novgorod is once you formed Russia, it essentially became identical to a Muscovy-->Russia game, you became a Tsardom and etc.

If anyone wants EU4 but without DRM, it's now on GOG, with all DLC. Game and DLC are currently 50% off ... so it's only a few hundred EUR for the complete package. :P

If we want to prevent catastrophic economic and societal change we will have to radically change our climate system.
