Heres why you should buy an play this game
And the stories it creates through gameplay. All I have to do is write about a battle I had in my latest Campaign as France.
So I was fighting a battle against the English, these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s had to gual to stab me in the back while I was off fighting the Moor's in Spain, they laid siege to Paris. What I did was raise a small army of elite soldiers coupled with peseants and drove back there full stack army. I chased them back towards there motherland, then they decided to send ANOTHER army to back them up that was roughly half a stack, I shrugged since the combined force I had gotten from Paris was about 1 and a half stacks of troops, not only that I had feudal knights and armored swordsmen.
So I started the battle and decimated the first enemy wave, not even the english Billmen could not stop my swordsmen charge, and my feudal knights broke whatever resistance was left. I had taken a decent amount of casualties, my feudal knights were a bit poorly managed and took alot of casualties and my peseants took a beating. So I reform and prepare to face the 2nd english army, the full one. What I had realized is that this full army was not a pushover, it was composed of fuedal knights, lowbowmen and even armoured swordsmen, AND EVEN ARTILLERY. I quickly matched his front line, charged and flanked with cavalry, his artillery killed over 100 men before I managed to hit it with one of my feudal knights, then I turn them unto the enemy flank just in the knick of time to prevent my men from routing, I have my general rally as well to make sure my men chase the enemy down. Once back on the campaign map, I ransom the men I captured back to england for 7,500 gold (which is alot at turn 45)
other things; ♥♥♥♥ the pope if you have more than 10 regions, unlike Crusader Kings 2 there is no official way to fight factions that are christian as a christian, even if enemies are the agressor they get a free pass to ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ up on you while they get a free pass.
Also, this is a great mod platform. There is a LORD OF THE RINGS MOD that is amazing, as well as a Game of Thrones mod, and many more total conversions as well as basic modifications like overhauls to the game.
