Movement speed is a measure of how quickly an army or navy can move between different provinces. Movement speed of a particular army or navy is affected by local and global movement speed modifiers, as well as by the general or admiral leading it.

Local movement speed modifiers[edit]

Several events from El Dorado.png El Dorado can affect the local movement speed in a particular province. Each event adds a province modifier with the stated effect for a duration of Time Icon.png one year. Multiple modifiers' effects stack. Local movement speed modifiers only affect movement into the affected province; movement out of the province is unchanged.
