    Very different games. Civ is turn based and Total War has much simpler empire builder mechanics. Watch someone stream it to see if you’d like it, that’s the only way.

    Don't know how to get rid of the IMG things. They don't appear when I edit my post.

    Been on a bit of an EU4 binge lately, and I recently just realized that Gaeldom, which starts as part of Scotland, has some pretty great national ideas. Among them are +15% shock damage, which is just fantastic, +15% army morale, +10% siege ability, increased attrition for enemies, and some manpower modifiers. It's not quite on the level of Prussia, but it wasn't even all that hard to take over the British Isles pretty quickly. Just invaded Sweden now, and even with their national ideas they can't keep up with mighty Gaeldom.

    Worth a try if you feel like play and underdog that turns into a military powerhouse.

    Just saw the weirdest thing in my current playthrough. I'm playing as Riga->Kurland so I didn't have anything to do with this either. Castile got the lowlands in the Burgundian inheritance, minus Brabant and Flanders who had already gained independence. Fast forward a hundred years, and Castile has been wrecked by an Aragon/France alliance, has lost all their land in Iberia, and now only controls the three provinces originally held by Holland, meaning Castile is now an HRE nation. Protestants just won the league war, and they elected Castile as their first Protestant Emperor.

    How's that for some alternate history.
