Currently, the Ottoman UHV1 is a mad scramble for conquest with no margin for error whatsoever, which is frustrating. I have some suggestions 1. Please change the goal to "Control Constantinople and ensure no other civ controls a city in the Balkans", since Bosnia never has a city in it, which leaves the Ottoman player needing to protect a settler and get him to Bosnia, which makes no sense historically. This way, you would still have to conquer all of the Balkans, but you wouldn't have to settle cities extraneously. 2. Please change it from 3 years/turn to 2 years/turn (but I think this is already planned). That way, you'd have more time to complete the conquest goal, which would reduce the mad scramble aspect of it and leave a little margin for bad luck (strong Bulgaria/Byzantines/Hungary or Venice owning a lot of Balkan cities) IMHO, ideal turn/time scale would be 3 years/turn: 500-800 (100 turns) 2 years/turn: 800-1700 (450 turns) 1 year/turn: 1700-1800 (100 turns) For a total of 650 turns 3. Please do something about stability, since conquering this quickly always leads to being unstable.
