What a great game once you figure out a little bit of it. So far I've done world dominating Korea, colonial powers of Brittany and Navarra... and today I'm going for a trading empire with The Hansa. Anyway, if you've played it you will understand that about 99% of the time England takes over the Irish provinces and then Scotland. Well, something went down in my game, and the Irish provinces are pretty close to unify to form Ireland, and not only that, the pesky Welsh have gained their independence as well. England is struggling. I will post a screenshot later because I'm a nerd.
