CPU is cheating?
Norway gets its armies out of nowhere. I've obtained 900 gold, hired an army, and destroyed them to dust. I've had an army of 8000 and 450 gold. I spreaded 8000 army to 4 groups and took 4 norway lands. Then guess what? 4000 norway army came. I destroyed that little **** by combining my army again and have got 4 lands, 6000 army and about 350 gold. Then guess what? Denmark embarked with an army of 4000. I killed them all. Then guess what? 3000 army of Norway! I killed them again. Guess what? 3000 army of Norway! Killed. 3000 army of Norway! Killed. 3000 army of Norway! I am defeated and have no money. Is there a special trick allowing the King Olav III of Norway to pull armies straigth out of his ♥♥♥? I started a war when he had about 100 gold not even able to hire anyone. Wtf is happening?

Maybe he is using his money to hire mercenaries? Dont forget he can borrow from Jews and expel them

Well, he seems to have 7k troops just from the realm. As we're almost in 1100 and he has a goodly Martial score, plus his councillors are good, it's not that out of place, and not 4k like you said.
Did you let the enemy reorganize its army? I am skeptic, it doesn't seem that farfetched of a situation.

the ai always cheats in paradox games they can get away with stuff that the player can not. this done so to give the player a challenge and cause ai is plain dumb so they have to make up for it. In Eu4 the ai clearly cheats with lucky trait and able to sell around the world exploring like its nothing.

Well boss if you feel the CPU is cheating than cheat in return. There's only the shame that you give yourself in doing so. I've had to do some rather cheap things in some playthroughs I've done like my most recent Hellenic Playthrough. If you don't feel comfortable doing so or you're in Ironman than you simply don't cheat. It's all up to you really.

If you want AI that doesn't cheat, play chess.

Norse rulers have a special CB called 'prepared invasion'.
Whenever they use this, they get extra troops from counties in Scandinavia over time.

Otherwise, you could test it by clicking on the Norse character, and clicking on their realm view.
You can hover over by the side of his portrait and see his current amount of troops.
That way you can see whether it is going up as you play, or whether the troops are simply hidden.
