Crusader Kings 2 patch 2.3.1 has swiftly been followed by a hotfix to take the game to 2.3.2 today, after the former patch introduced a bug that prevented the building of holdings. That should be sorted out now, so players should be able to enjoy the benefits of the initial update without concern.
The major bug fix in 2.3.1 looks like it addressed a problem with vassal levies refusing to be dismissed. This wasn’t some sort of medieval labour dispute, but just a plain old bug.
According to the minor bugfix notes, this patch also makes seduction more prone to SCANDAL. And quite right too. Can’t have the medieval royals getting away with shagging whoever they please, can we?
