    Default Charlemagne Campaign

    I started a campaign in the Charlemagne DLC - first with the Emirate of Cordoba and then I plan on with Charlemagne because I started off with Char initially but it was quite complicated, so I went for something easier instead.

    Couple of points...


    • Impressive building tree (varied, a lot of different options / bonuses)
    • Culture has a huge impact (if you don't solve it quickly you lose your campaign)
    • Various kingdoms make up for an interesting fight
    • Some more unit variation would be great
    • Huge battles aren't really common
    • The campmap is huge, even if it's half of Europe only


    Any thoughts on the DLC?

    Definitely agree. The setting is great, I love being in early medieval Europe, but the lack of unit diversity puts a damper on things, plus the open battles seem to be too few. Like I think in about 10 hours playing the DLC I fought two non-siege battles.

    I finished 2 more campaigns - Mercia and Lombards. Mercia was enjoyable, Lombards were as well but the Emirate of Cordoba was by far the best.

    Looking forward to Charlemagne.
