Completely agree having tried a trader game getting to 10 million is a big achievement so getting to 30 in that time would be really tricky if not impossible and so it seems like such an outlying issue that it's odd that they chose to nerf it quite so much, you'd make that in any half decent battle or for that matter trade stop so it's not like it's game breaking. If nothing else I'd appreciate the cap to be higher say 2-3k instead.Buying 2 towns would only be if they are 1500 prosperity, with 3 mil you might get lucky to get 1 with 5k prosperity, as a vassal I can easily get 2 towns or castles and defend them so that point is not valid
second making 30,000 a day, that is someone holding 30 million. when I have 3 million that means with .1% interest that is 3k. which is fine but I guess like Warband we do need mods, heck can't get any help with for traders and they hit them again with spring of gold cap
I just hope they don't scrap everything has a price as it's one of the most interesting perks in the game as it gives you a real change to the dynamic. I know it offends some, but I love the idea of taking a town not by force and getting to 300 in trade is far, far harder than picking off a weak town from a distracted enemy already fighting on other fronts.
