I just completed the main campaign game as the British Empire on medium settings. It took me several tries before I realized I needed to conquer Hindustan first in the Mughal Empire then go to war with France next, eliminate the United States, conquer some Iroquis territory, then make peace with France, then go to war with the Cherokee nations, then finally conquer Gibralter in Spain, all in that order. I really like all the Total War games. I was just so excited and happy to win the campaign as the British I had to share it here with everybody. I hope it's okay. And thanks again to the developers for making all their Total War games.
