My M2TW that i ordered a few days ago has arrived in the mail today ! Right now it is installing. Once it is finished installing I'm going to have to make a choice that i have been pondering on for awhile now. What in your opinion is the best faction out of the five that you begin with? I was originally going to do a Holy Roman Empire campaign but it seems that you are surrounded by enemies. (I'm new to the series so i don't want to get pummeled for the first time ). England seems easier, since you are on an island. France also looks good. What faction did everybody else use for their first campaign?
