I've tried using a mixture of veterans and vanilla troops.
I've tyried using Ashigaru and samurai
I've tried samurai and monks
I've tried ashigaru and monks
I've tried flanking with cavalry
I've tried baiting with light cav
I've tried matchlock
I've tried bows
I always keep my flanks guarded
I always make sure my missile troops are guarded
I always make sure my ashigaru go in first and samurai second
I always keep my general in range
I use cooldowns when I need to
And yet the enemy player always smashes through my army like a hammer upon glass. I'm constantly put up against armies that are smaller than mine and yet somehow they will come out with such small casualties, I wonder if there was any point to me even trying to attack them.
Whenever I go into a game, even if I have all fresh "vanilla" infantry, the other guy always seems to have more than me. If I have 2 horse units, he has 4.
I'm constantly pitted against people who are thousands of ranks above me, regardless of my win/loss ratio.
I'm disheartened, I'm fed up and I'm bored of losing. I haven't had a victory in days. I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong.
