Invasion of arabian empire.
I have occupied the whole arabian empire. Now, a phantom appear and he occupied a random province. He declare war and he has a army of over 200.000 men. If I lose the war, he receive all my titles. I cannot win the war, because he conquers about 30 realms of my 1253 and he has a warscore of 100%.

Can anyone explain me, what the reason for this is? All happens after 1184.

this sounds almost like the ilkhanate, but I think 1184 is a little early for that. But if it is the Ilkhanate, you're skrewed. may as well start over, or try conquering someone small to the west.

If it's the Arabian empire, and given the date, it's more likely that the 'phantom' is a decadence rebellion. Not sure what the technical term is, but basically if you let decadence get too high, eventually a horde will appear with forces equivalent to something like your own max levy plus 10% (not exact figures!) that are immune to attrition. In historical terms, this is to simulate what happened to several Muslim dynasties which became percieved as decadent and complacent and were taken over by hordes of zealous warriors from the desert or the mountains or whatever. In game terms this is to balance the advantages Muslims have in terms of government, war rules etc. It is possible to beat them but very hard, as you say they can get warscore up to 100% very fast.

He doesn't recieve all your titles, by the way - you get to keep any titles you have below the top level (say if you are an emperor and have a kingdom title, you lose the empire but remain king/sultan).

The best way to avoid this is to keep your decadence as low as possible, especially try to keep it below 50%
