    Hi everybody! It has been a very long time! The last time I was here was a bit over a year ago, where I started an Immortal level Kublai Khan game that got stalled early, then I moved on to other things. Then WoW Classic happened. Then I burned out hard on that, so I started dusting off old games I used to play.

    Then I dusted of EU2. It has always fascinated me, since I first picked it up. It was there around the same time as Civ3 - and I never got into Civ3 because of EU2.

    My biases favor playing with the English in 1419. England starts in a war against France and Vassals and Scotland. They have great leaders to wipe the map with them and be in a position to "win" the 100 Years War, but they only have Henry V (Aggressive..... and Imperialistic?) for a few years before he dies in a manner worthy of the Oregon Trail.

    Then France shows up with some terrifying generals. Then I realized - What is it like to play France? They start in a war against two or three terrifying leaders, but the AI is very stupid and the AI vassals can wear down these leaders while we wear down our opponents. I played a bunch of starts, trying to figure out how to exploit this.

    Does anybody still play this or have they moved on to 3 or 4?
