New-ish to TW

I was looking for something different in a game and last year I bought Medieval 2 and Kingdoms expansion and I played about 20 hours of that and it was pretty fun owning France and getting them down to 2 towns left and I haven't really played since, since it seemed like it would be tough work.

I've been playing other games since then. Namely EVE online. I have learned alot about strategies, tactics, and ranks and whats good against what and about advamtages and advantages about the enemy and myself. That and I'm becoming more and more interested in military combat, specifically around these time areas.

Now, I feel I have a good concept for battle and only partially confident in my abilities as a commander as well as a TW player. I know what to do but just not the nitty gritty details, specifically battles. That's what I'm more concerned about right now. The other thing is managing my armies and towns with money, public order, etc. As much as I like playing Medieval 2, I just feel I need to upgrade. The game mechanics make it feel less that what it should feel. With Shogun 2 it just feels so real and I can feel out the battlefield so much better and like a real sim.

I'm mainly looking for someone to play with who can show me more in depth with the art of warfare and just looking for more battle experience without playing against people who have more skill and experience than I do and not really learn anything from it because they defeat me so fast.

So hello all and I'm glad to be here and looking forward to talking with people and maybe make some close internet friends with similar interests.

And yes I made this post on the .org I just don't know where the central TW/shogun 2 community is so that is why I am here!

    First off, I've got to say that while the ancient world is a fantastic time period for a TW game, Rome II is still pretty broken for now, and because it's more or less broken, you might have more difficulty learning the tips and tricks to the game. I like to think that I have a fair grasp of TW battle tactics, but all of it went out the window with Rome II. The fatigue and morale system are so different from previous TW titles that you can usually finish a battle in less than 10 minutes, unlike in Rome I and Medieval 2 where battles could last a good half an hour to an hour.

    Anyways, if you want to learn the nitty gritty of the game, add me on Steam; my username is puffthemagicdragon300. I've got extensive experience with the Total War franchise and have played every Total War game ever released except Medieval: Total War and Shogun: Total War (which were both very early releases. I started with Rome I). Additionally, I just beat my Roman campaign in Rome II, so I feel like I have a decent grasp of how the newest TW game works.
    Molôn labe!
