Researching Faith via raiding wasn't reflected in my tech tree, so not sure if that worked.
Playing on Hard, research in general was super-slow. I cleared the entire map, and all I got was Elite Berserker, Chieftains, Squires, Arson and Faith. Not having Ballistics for the entire scen kinda sucked, not gonna lie.
Jomsviking was... kinda insane. Don't think I ever had that before.
I went to find the stranded Vikings in thre Hebrides early on, but the quest to find them didn't pop a few hours into the game, so I couldn't compete it, since I've already pillaged Alba to the ground by then.

"Alba barracks seem to not respawn anymore."
That was a change since quite a few people didn't like it -- now the barracks stop respawning once they are all destroyed. Likewise, the rebellions in your own lands occur less frequently now than in the HD version.
