    Hi

    I have this MacBook Pro - I5 2.6 - 8 GB - Intel Iris 1536 GPU

    I'm looking for a strategy game with a lot of dept, but still very little demanding of the system? So far I have found Crusader Kings 2 - but do you people know others. I really like WW2 games.

    Thanks :)

    look at nethack

    A Dungeons and Dragons style game from the 1970's. I can't think of a game that will be less demanding on your computer but more demanding on you - I don't know anyone who has ever managed to complete it.

    you need to disable SIP to run that build in el cap

    maybe someone will create another build that works with SIP in the future.

    It's free http://www.nethack.org but you need to wait for them to update it before it will work with El Capitan.

    I stand corrected, disable SIP

    I would not recommend disabling SIP over a game personally. It's an important security feature that was implemented for good reason. I'd suggest waiting for a compatible update. Just my two cents about that.

    Since you seem to like grand strategy where you chose Crusader Kings, Paradox who publishes that game offers a variety of others including a WWII grand strategy that you might enjoy. It is available on both Steam and the Mac App Store and is called Hearts of Iron III Collection and this includes all three expansions to the game as well for a nice price where it has been out for a while. If you buy it on Steam and look at any other optional DLC for it be careful to note what is Steamplay and what is not. Not all the DLC works for the Mac version which is no great loss but you should be aware of that when checking it out. That game will keep you busy for a while.

    If you do a search for Mac strategy games on Steam I think you will come up with a fairly decent number of them that do not have demanding system requirements including some for WWII fans. Also, be sure to check out what Mac offerings for Strategy are available at GOG.com which sells all DRM-free games and has a decent Mac selection including old classics fixed up to run on modern Macs. You may find yourself a gem or two there also.

    By the way, Heats of Iron IV is in the works currently. I would expect it will be available for Mac given how often Paradox games are but you might want to check that on Steam too and wish list it for later if it looks good to you. It already has a store page there although it is not released yet with a "Coming Soon" banner. The system requirements are not demanding at all for it either.

    I agree with DirtyHarry50: don't mess around with such things just for one game, especially when there are alternatives. There's a compatible NetHack version on the MAS, and tons of similar games, like ToME 4, Brogue, Angband, roughly a bazillion of similar other.
