Multiplayer Hacks ?

I ask this question as i have just lost a battle in the strangest way ! I forgot to save the replay sorry folks so you will have to take my word for it.

Anyway 2 x archers rank 3 and a kantana managed to fend of 2 rank 4 monk units along with a rank 3 kantana with my general rallying behind. Striked me as odd !

Also i routed his Kantana only for them to come back with full morale after a second of
withdrawing my men to attack another unit.

In short he defeated a army stronger then his with bow units fending off melee.

My question is, is there now hacks for online ?

    Short answer: no

    Longer answer: inexperienced players like to call cheats instead of striving to understand the real reason something happened

    I use my sam bows as infantry all the time. With the morale boosts from the general, they have better morale than loan swords, and are just as good in melee.
    Yes, it's me.

    You have spoken with clarity of thought and rhetorical flourish...you have surely earned the favour of the mods.

    i would go with that :P. I sometimes got group problems, and believe me it has wiped me out many times. unable to correctly naviagete and organinice, creating gaps leaving you open, creating frustration even with winning because it doesnt work like it should ;).

    Oh, and I totally agree about the recent mp 'bugs'...had a couple of games where the navigation turned sour, pathing went to blazes, and units just weren't doing what they should have.

    Something most odd is happening...

    Monks have no armor and are utterly crushed by archers. If you can't entangle his archers in melee combat, they will simply shred unarmored units.

    If his routing katana unit was rallied, inspired, or received a morale boost through reinforcement or entering a general's aura of encouragement, it could have regained its morale and re-engaged. Make sure to shatter routing units by continuing to inflict casualties or further demoralizing them.

    You may feel that your force was superior, but there's more to winning than simply having a stronger army. It sounds like you fought a strong opponent.

    Hello,

    If you suspect people of cheating send us a replay using the following guide: -


    1) Save games, replays, preferences scripts and logs can be found here C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_NAME\Application Data\The Creative Assembly\Shogun2\save_games (Type %appdata% into run) then select Creative Asembly, Shogun 2.
    2) Steam crash dumps can be found here C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\total war shogun 2. They look like this shogun2_3241_crash_2011_3_22T15_47_10C0.mdmp
    3) In the subject box please put the title of the thread from which you originally posted on the forums
    4) Please Zip any files to save space.
    5) Add any additional details and a link to the original forum post. dxdiag, forum username and any pictures, videos and replays would also help.
    6) Send all your information to [email protected]

    Thanks

    Im not sure if there is any hacks for this game.. I have played a seige defensive game before in which a group of level 3 samurai archers of my opponent has been able to outrange my Bow ashigaru vets.. By quite a bit. keep in mind they should have the same range stat!

    Upon looking at the upgrades for samurai i then realized that there is no range upgrade for them by that point!! Not to mention i was higher up so should it have been the other way around???

    Only reason this made me pause and think is in our in game banter he paused and said "wait one sec just turning my hacks on" of which i thought he was joking around..

    Are we sure people havnt found a way to edit unit stats?
