DO IT - after getting my arse kicked by it in two earlier campaigns, things fell into place and I loved that Croatia campaign. I feel like KoH2 and The Great War: Western Front will be on my hard drive for 20+ years. Maybe SpellForce: Conquest of Eo as well.

Always do what you feel is best.

Well I did finally grab this one.  Picked it up for just $20.00 at Fanatical, thanks to the sale plus a coupon.  Gonna see about firing it up this weekend. 




Incidentally, it looks like I picked a good time to get it in more ways that one, as another major update (version 1.4.0) just dropped...

Black Sea Games talks about the update in their latest dev diary: 

https://community.knightsofhonor.com/index/dev-diaries/devdiary-34-update-14-catholicism-and-diplomacy-r42/



Their focus this time around was on improvements to religion and diplomacy.  Specifically, Catholic kingdoms who's former cleric has become Pope will gain access to interesting new options & abilities.  Similarly, new diplomatic options -- particularly the ability to form vassals from lands you've conquered but remain irritatingly unruly -- sounds like they should be welcome additions.

Excellent - it was actually a negative to become pope earlier because you lost your kick ass priest and there was no compensation

Liking these improvements

Yes I too am starting a new campaign to check out this new update as well. Always takes me hours to choose era and kingdom, though. I think I read somewhere in the bowels of the update notes that more specialized troops will be more accessible to all so…giggity.

Yes, sir.  From the dev diary and patch notes, respectively:

We’ve vastly increased the availability of special units, spicing up the gameplay when playing with more kingdoms and when new territories are conquered. Merchants also received a new action – “Entice mercenaries”, enabling players with strong economies to rely less on mercenaries appearing in their lands and to instead call some to aid them from foreign lands.

* Considerably increased availability of special units in provinces and kingdoms. Kingdoms that are formed from a province now have the province special units as their kingdom special units as well.

Fantastic! I think...think...I am going to try Sicily in the earliest era and see where it leads.
