Great preview! Good to hear that cannons will be horse drawn, not having 6 guys push it around!

I'm glad about the cannons too. I'm also glad they made sure you couldn't kill all a factions generals with the duelling thing.

Calling all new people. USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION before asking a question. Thank you.

Same here. It isn't very realistic when you can kill an entire faction without them getting angry at you.

Some great news in this preview.
Empire's diplomacy system has been greatly streamlined, with a single diplomatic interface negating the tedium of micromanaging individual diplomats on the campaign map.
Farewell useless diplomats. We shall miss you not.

It does look like the Rake & Gentleman will crossover somewhat.
These watery conflicts proved far slower, more considered affairs than their terra firma equivalents.
Thank heavens for that. If they were too fast paced, players would never be able to control them.
made all the more difficult by the need to manually reload cannons after firing at the enemy.
Eeek! This could be very tricky.
