1.99 per hour and not a penny more.

Having looked at atilla 1212 to fire up a ‘grown up’ Genoa campaign I realise now a huge difference between KoH and TW - not that the two are competitors - but in KoH there is a just and real reason to go to war with someone - you need stone for the monasteries, war horses for the elite cavalry, wool for the clothing trade whereas TW is just a land grab - take this for 5000 gold and so on - them I find the difference much more immersive on the KOH side and may struggle to revisit TW - we’ll see

Interesting thoughts Ucg.

I agree that KOH2 is a much more immersive game than the TW series games are.  My comment is that KOH2 takes a lot of brainpower resources to manage everything whilst the TW series of games can be played somewhat on autopilot.

Why does this even matter?  After a long day at work I find that my brain is burnt out so some games can only be played on the weekend when my mind is fresh.  I hope that makes sense.

Don't be afraid, don't be dismayed

Absolutely makes sense - sometimes it’s just about chilling out, I get it

As a long time TW fan boi, I begrudgingly agree. I got sucked into my Croatia KoH2 campaign, finally won it, then attempted to play an Attila 1212 campaign as Bulgaria…where I got bored after a few turns and stopped. KoH2 has that certain something, even though on the surface it appears simpler.

I feel ya brother on the begrudgingly agreeing part.  Sometimes it's hard to let go of our personal favorite games that we are totally in love with when a new game comes along. 

It's like if you were dating Farah Fawcett and no other woman could compare, it would be hard to let her go if a Pamela Anderson came along saying she'd like to date you.  Oh hell, who am I kidding... ;D

Don't be afraid, don't be dismayed

^On that note, is KoH2 moddable at all? Are there any plans for future content from the developers?

The next release that seems to be taking a while is promised to have modding support

It’ll be interesting to see what happens

I imagine more factions and more resources

Maybe a few extra units

I hope so. Maybe a new era beginning in 1500? Would not be out of the question. KoH2: Gunpowder!

I still need to pick this one up.  I was kinda waiting for a sale, and more polish/QoL improvements, but it's very much still near the top of my wishlist.
