Hi everyone,

The name is Conzie and I am relatively new to the Total War series (only been playing often for 2ish weeks)
I have been playing RTW and TWS2 quite often, and enjoying both of them, but a question, got any good game tips for a beginner from you (as the forum says) seasoned veterans?

Thanks very much. :)

    Watch some "let's play" videos online. You will see how other people manage cities and family members. There is a lot of depth to city management than just trying to increase income levels. Also gain some knowledge of battle tactics from those players.

    Welcome Conzie!

    As far as tips, watch some vids online like the Let's Play ones already mentioned.

    other than that, please tell us what specifically you would like some tips on (battle tactics, surviving a campaign, etc) as TW is a rather large game set up to give general tips imo. We will always be happy to help you out with anything! Just ask and we shall answer as best we can.

    Welcome and have fun!

    This is a great place to find information on past and upcoming titles, and meet some great, and - ok - some pretty amusing people... :)

    In addition to the ideas given so far, you can always simply choose the right subforum and do a search by topic or keyword. If you don't find what you were looking for you can always start a thread asking the question you are needing help with. Make sure you try and keep it in the right area, and always always obey the speed limit!

    For most general problems, for which you have no idea of the culprit, your first port of call should be:

    If you are aware of a bug or a specific issue for which you know the cause, post in the support section for the specific title on our forums. ~Al
