I was wondering what everyone's favourite campaign out of the four kingdoms ones was, also I would be interested to know who people's favourite faction was in kingdoms.

Personally the Brittania campaign is definately my favorite, but despite that my favourite faction would probably be Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Just for the fun of it I have decided to keep score.

Campaign:

Crusades: 7
Britania: 5
Teutonic: 3

Faction:


Apache: 2
Egypt: 3
Kindom of Jerusalem: 2
New Spain: 1
Norway: 1
Principality of Antioch: 1
Scotland: 2
Turks: 1
Wales: 1

I will fight for Total War Heaven.

Will You?

In my opinion the Brittania campaign is best, the Americas is too easy as any faction. As New spain you win easily. And as the Natives you just spam and win. Teutonic is no fun because there are lots of HA nations, same with Crusades. Though my favorite faction would be Wales. Their spearmen rule, their cavalry is decent. Only their archers could be better.

Favourite Campaign is Crusades and my Favourite Faction is Egypt. Their Mumlaks match the Mongols when they come and when they do i already have a huge Empire. Also i love Tabardyria(sp?).

Edit: Spelled "Egpyt" like an idiot, lol

Think you're a hotshot against the Mongols? Go to the Mongolphobia mod discussions and download the mod, then, you will surely tremble with fear in the face of the Mongols. If you have suggestions/questions, feel free to make a thread. You can download Mongolphobia here. Good luck.

Fighting Byzantium, Antioch, Jerusalem at the same time, then going against Mongols, Egypt and probably Venice.. is the second most fun i've had with this game .

Campaign: Teutonic Campaign (most enjoyable campaign with unpredictable enemy moves, as Lithuania you have so many borders to defend is why i just love it.)

Faction: Norway (from Brittania Campaign, it's very very interesting playing this faction, you can learn from it and i love their unit selection, also you really get the feeling of being a Viking King ^.^ )

He spelt that correctly. And why do you lot even care whether UK or US spelling is used here? The game isn't American. And I reiterate a warning that on other forums where spelling Nazis became dominant to forget any grammar I ever learned of this language. Rant over.

Favourite Campaign:

Britannia.

Favourite Faction:

Scotland. Just seems most appropriate for the campaign. And, besides, the AI as England spams billmen, which are so easy to defeat it's ridiculously funny.

although i don't play M2TW that long, i have gotten a huge love for the desert and his inhabitants.

Favourite Faction: Kingdom of Antioch

I love the unit range for Antioch, with Knights of Eddesa readily available, and the Byzantine lands there for the taking.

campaign: Britannia

Faction: Scotland
I love William Wallace he owned the English and finished of with Norway. and there pikemen are supreme at defending the gate. While the light infantry holds the walls.

Choose your love wisely. Love your choice always.

Brittania is the best because all the other ones you can easily blitz and win in the first couple turns
second brittania has welsh which are the best.
however slightly disappointing because their longbowmen arent all conquering all in all brittania is the most fun with crusades coming in second

americas is just way to easy with by turn 20 or so earning average of 10000 florins as a low income so if your new then go for americas because its fun with the apaches who are ridiculously easy before the french come then its slightly challenging. Dont play as the spanish though its laughably simple.
welsh can beat anyone anywhere!!

Campaign: Teutons. I played as Lithuania on VH/VH, and the HRE, Poland, Denmark, Mongols(the Modded Mongols, not the sissy one) and the Teutons all declared war on me while only Novgorod was willing to be my ally. It was a great challenge.

Faction: Apache. Massed Mounted Thunder Braves FTW. 12 Heroic markers in a row.

I really liked the feeling and music in the Britannia campaign. But its still a close match with the Crusades, in which i play a pretty mad Jerusalem.

Campaign: Crusades
Faction: Jerusalem

The reason for this is mostly because I've gotten a good early-game strategy down. The small but strong armies should stick close together so as not to be overwhelmed by larger but weaker and faster Egyptian armies. Takes a while to get there, but make those two bridges just north of the Red Sea and you can hold for a century against anything the Egyptians throw at you (which is a lot). Meanwhile, you're building armies to ship with the navy to conquer Egypt's coastal cities. Last campaign I snagged Alexandria while Egypt was throwing their armies at me but making no progress since I held both bridges. PLUS, even though I had no intention of taking Tanta until I built another army to ship, Saladin came out of the city BY HIMSELF within cavalry striking distance of Alexandria. I couldn't let the opportunity pass by, and though he inflicted more casualties on my units than mine on his, I killed the king - very worth it!!
