You guys complained about it, a lot, but there is something to be said for pumping tens of thousands of Influence into denying Caladog his gdmf freedom.
I'm closing out a 1.1.5 campaign, as I can tell that 1.2.2 will probably not be the last update in the next few. Many cool features (native weather, plus map weather!) on the horizon, but having played this style A LOT, I will say that kingdoms should get a year to retake a fief and re-establish.
Smell ya later
