There’s some stuff about Popes in there, too.

If you’ve been playing Crusader Kings II of late, perhaps with the new Sons of Abraham DLC, you’ll have noticed that troops spawning from events tend to be a bit on the overpowered side. In the sense of 8,000 rebels popping up on some lands that your levies are only prepared to raise a couple of hundred guys with sticks to oppose.

That wasn’t too helpful, which is why Patch 2.0.2 has “significantly” reduced those troop amounts. Crusader Kings II patch notes are always a treat, full as they are with points like “AI: More careful about appointing disgruntled Spymasters” and “Made sure the Vikings have enough ships in 867.” Yep, those both sound useful.

Read the full set of release notes, below. Then go forth and murder your awkward kin.
