    Default Question about veteran units...

    Hey there,

    I've been playing MP since Shogun 2 was released and in most of my battles I have used 6 units of Katana Samurai, and usually 2 Bow Ashigaru and 2 Yari Ashigaru. I can't count the number of times veteran slots were unlocked for my Ashigaru units although they are fodder and usually get slaughtered, yet never once did I unlock a veteran Katana Samurai unit Even when they get a huge k/d ratio on the battlefield.

    Does anyone else have this "problem"?

    Yep, when I first started I had the same problem. As I leveled up my avatar and fielded only veteran ashigaru units with a non-vetted katana samurai - I was finally able to achieve the vets. Try that out and it should work.

    hmm interesting, did you get the win on that one? I'm pretty sure when I click concede defeat the game ends with a loss on my end.

    Thanks for the replies.

    You're not going to believe me, but since I posted this thread I played a few battles and I've gained 5 or 6 veteran samurai units. Is that weird or what?

    Once you get to 14k battles, your katanas will start to level up.
