Hey guys I had Rome TW when it first came out but left for the Military a few weeks after and my comp broke while I was in basic so I never really got to play it. I just recently bought a computer and really wanting to get into the TW series as I'm tired of playing Age of Empires. I am very interested in the series though I'm not very good, I've bought within the last few weeks Rome, Shogun 2, I've got Shogun 2 Fall of Samurai coming from Amazon any day now, and Empire. I really want to get good at the Melee side since Rome 2 is coming out but I'm just horrible, yesterday on Shogun 2 I had an Army of 1800 and the enemy 1600-2000 and all my units ran away within 2minutes of the battle. Pretty much the only strategy I know is what was shown in the tutorial, have your archers in front of melee in skirmish and when archers about to run away charge the melee. I've looked on youtube and places for tactics but cant really find any. I know it'd probably be a book full to tell all the tactics but every little bit helps.
