    Yeah, Recruitment/Disbanding is 24 as no Diplomacy is required. I just wanted to make sure everyone wasn't going to wait around for no good reason. If you are busy and cannot reply to everyone instantly due to timezones, then that is a good reason.

    Being better than the worst does not inherently make you good. But being better than the rest lets you brag.

    What are you thinking Italy? That the locked partners Russia and Ottomans are going to leave you as Pope in Rome when they run you over after Austria? Similarly to England. You think you can become a Vassal of Ruskies?
