I mentioned this in another thread and was asked to take it elsewhere, so here ya go: When the king declares war on someone and I ask for troops, the player gets a huge boost to their military. A man of war and some royal troops is often enough to start conquering. In a recent game I eliminated the British just with these royal troops. Does the AI European power also get additional troops from their king too? When I conquering the Brits they didn't have any royal troops, that gives a pretty big advantage to the human player.
