Channel Description:

I haven't seen a topic like this, and since this is the most important part of the game (or at least the most fun ), I figured it should be up. In short, describe the way you fight your battles. On defence, on offense, on bridges, specific faction requirements/handicaps/benefits etc.

  • Whats your favourite army in VI to fight with Comanche? I also used like the turn-based side but it soon got predictiable and the worthless diplomacy (you save them, they abandon you) turns pretty bad. There was one time when i just lost my King to age. ...
