    When playing Poland it never feels good whichever path i take (economy focus early or conquest early).

    Don’t take it wrong, i mean finishing UHV or sacking neighbours are not a problem, but compared to other civ (you can steamroll anything basically) it felt sluggish. Even merchant civs like genoa/venice/dutch feel powerful.

    Same is true for Novogord but their problem mainly come from crap hammer cities (riga is the only thing good happened to Novogord and will flip VERY SOON, requires you to take it back facing stacks of teutonic knights).

    Its true. I have the same issue, i think its the same as novgorod. Not enough hammer without health problems. Only decent city is krakkow, by far.

    No stone in Poland area to defend the Mongol, should I destroy Bohemia?

    While I agree that Poland and Novgorod are not as steamrolling as some other civs, I usually feel it's the other way around:
    In general, most civs are easier to play as they should be.

    Nah, just guerilla the golden horde in wooded hills area with armored lancer/knight and spearman. Sometimes with a good start you dont even got pillaged

    Yes, my intention with this post was just checking whetever i’m doing poland wrong or there is some tactics i didnt know but in fact many people feel the same, so its all good lets move on.

    I agree with your assesment, if everybody in central europe is too strong, playing as denmark and prussia will be a nightmare.

    Playing Denmark is already a nightmare IMO, too weak compared with Sweden

    Nah, if you settle Brandenburg right at the beginning you can have a strong enough military to beat Sweden. The real challenge with Denmark is keeping the horrendously unstable Kalmar Union together.

    I found that it would be better to settle Upper Hungary ASAP in order to get much more resource. No need to worry about stablity actually.

    It is because you can't go east before the end of Mongol attack. You may get the west Lubeck and South Upper Hungary(it's also the 2nd mission request), or even go north with ship.
    Stability is not a big problem before you go east.

    Actually IMO Poland is very strong for UP(especially the Abbey can't be used to change religious tolerance at next version) and UB. The main problem is Poor Land. So please feel free to get it from the unsettled land.

    Oh, wait, you’re talking about settling Upper Hungary as Poland? I thought you meant as Denmark :crazyeye:

    That’s a good strategy for the former, yes, especially because of how strong Hungary gets later on. Another option is to declare war on them early and take the land, but then you have culture stability issues
