    Default Russians are tough

    I'm playing a camphain as the Russians and i attacked Sweden. My whole (small) army was routed except a unit of line inf. The swedes have lots of cavalry but not much inf. except for 2 units of armed citizens, 1 militia and 1 line inf. My 1 unit of line inf. are in a house and are sniping the swedes one by one

    3 attacks have been mounted on the house and they all ended with the attacking troops being routed. The only unit they have capable of taking it NOW are militia who have clumsy AI syndrome and wont attack. The battle (sniperfest) is playing out now. I will update ya and tell what happens.

    Aint that insane. Im so proud of my virtual men

    Cool

    I won. I was down to 45 men, who are on there way home for vodka. They (the Swedish) did have a canon hiding in the trees, But by then their army was down to 50 60 pikemen and militia. I ran outside and killed em all and then rushed the canon and destroyed it, winning the battle.


    I was sieging a city and they came out and attacked me, Thats how it all started. I went around their flank and into the city. Then all **** broke loose.


    The siege is still on and reinforcements are on the way.

    I like playing the Russians. Its a very descent Challenge. You got Turks, Swedes, Tatars and Georgians all knocking on your door. You gotta hit them hard and fast before they get to strong for you.

    Default Try the Turks

    If you think that’s difficult try playing the Ottoman Empire. Everyone hates you even other Muslim nations and your troops are really inferior. If you are looking for a challenge Play Ottoman on high difficulty cause you will need totally new battle tactics. Sneaky ambushes, headlong cavalry charges and concentrated artillery fire is the only thing that works cause their line infantry is useless at least until you have researched European Doctrine.
