Liu Bei's amazing stable of generals to beat down the opposition

MyNameIsTakenMyNameIsTaken Registered Users Posts: 11
Playing Liu Bei on VH-VH, and have a great chance to win my first TW3K on those settings due to attracting many of the best fighters in the game.

Liu Bei, of course, starts off with Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, two masters of the duel. Then I adopted two female generals and married Lu Bu and Ma Chao into my faction. Later I popped the event to get Zhao Yun and was able to grab Xiaohuo Dun when he appeared in the candidate pool after Cao Cao's destruction (by my hand).

Three armies, each with two great fighters. I'm taking down other armies with twice as many men easily.

Not wanting to celebrate too soon, but dang, once you learn how to nab the biggest names you really can dominate.

    I do not use this method as I think faction heirs should not leave their faction quite so easily.

    Personally I only use people who served under Liu Bei.

    How can anyone say no to that grinning fiend

    Also, Cao Cao defeated? Sounds like dirty Liu Bei propaganda too me

    Yeah the Lu Bu marriage trick works wonders. As Liu Bei you can also confederate a lot of people given the right conditions too from the start of the game so make sure to check every turn as you have a decent chance of picking up some random factions here and there for free.
