For me this feels mandatory, because otherwise war literally feels obsolete and left out. Mothballing is my favourite - when I play as a land master I don't need fleets early on - so mothballing just leaves them to rot, but not get destroyed. Transferring the siege occupation is really necessary if you go for a vassal swarm, or just want to give allies some land so they don't feel left out. Overall it fleshes out the aspect of war of EU4 and is, unlike most of the new Expansions - very good to own and every feature helps everyone.

Very nice DLC, more like an overhaul actually


Almost everything new works great! (Which is a lot!) However, the automated fleet transport is a joke and letting your allies use your transports tend to desync the game in multiplayer. The settings of objectives for allies in war does not seem to work either, only for subjects. All in all very good dlc though!
