Quick Overview

The kill_advisors command in Europa Universalis IV, when executed, will eliminate all of the advisors currently in your court and also in the pool (list of advisors) that you can potentially hire. Basically, it removes all existing advisors from your game.

In-Depth Description

The kill_advisors command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that eliminates all the advisors currently present in your court, as well as those available for hire in the recruitment pool.

Advisors in EU4 play a vital role as they provide various benefits and enhance your game strategy in different fields, such as military, diplomacy, and administration.

Each advisor also provides a monthly increase to power points of their respective type (Military, Administrative, or Diplomatic) depending on their skill level.

The command kill_advisors allows you to remove all current advisors and start fresh, either because the current lineup is not satisfactory or if you are looking for a specific type that's not currently available.

However, keep in mind that there will be an investment of time and resources to hire and level up new advisors.

The kill_advisors command can be particularly useful in certain situations.

For example, if your country is going through a financial crisis and you can't afford your advisors' wages, you can use the command to immediately free up some budget by removing them. Or, you may use this command if you're looking for a bigger challenge by disabling those bonuses associated with advisors.
