Anyone else really annoyed about coring times these days? With the nerf to both vassal feeding and being able to diplo-annex in general you need to core a lot more yourself. And that isn't an issue ADM wise, but time wise. Denmark with all of Scandinavia integrated and having conquered all of the Teutons, 2 of Pomerania(Brandenburg stole 1), Riga, all but 2 of the Livs(Stolen by Lith), and Mecklenberg, takes from 5 to 9 years to core lands. Actually I'm coring the Teuton, Livonian, and Pomeranian lands that I just took. Stettin is a whopping 9 years. And I am pretty sure the core times will grow as the game moves on. I haven't gotten ANY PUs, not even crappy ones. It seems like it will be impossible to conquer even a significant portion of the world, much less do a WC. Counting 350 mainline years and averaging 10 years of coring time by the end and given that anything over 120% OE is basically death, I have 35 cycles, and that's assuming I go to war for the next group as the first group is finishing up. 35 * 6, unless they are really crappy. So less than 250 provinces as Denmark. Plus they did that whole protectorate so that I cannot even vassalize most nations AT ALL. I doubt I can easily protectorate the entire eastern world since protectorates don't contribute militarily. Of course Denmark is not the optimal WC nation but still. I should at least be able to get 40% of the map under personal, PU, or vassal ownership by games end and that doesn't seem at all possible.
