Ok my fellar Portos i know you r excited for SEA and the great money from spice trade.
However we need to control our expand to limit IQ points. Now taking meaning less ports doesnt help any, and in the future we gotta use dutch mule to flip it back to reduce our IQ burden, that's waste of money. Better strategy is concentrate on developing EU lands for better spice market and prepare for E-Asia trade in the coming future.
Spainiards did sth stupid that their last IQ fall well behind us,so we got a happy week on spice without their pirates. Let's keep on being smarter than them.
