There now is an announcement of the new release date on the official site as well. Nothing new, except the last paragraph. I quote:
Significantly the additional time will also allow us to implement the underlying technology for a much desired feature (thanks to your feedback!); a multiplayer campaign mode. An opportunity to participate in the 1 versus 1 multiplayer campaign mode beta will be made available to all Empire Total War buyers post release.
See here for the full post.

So it looks like there will be a multiplayer campaign mode in Empire: Total War, which will be released after the game's release.

Discuss and/or celebrate here.

It's mostly forested. I'd use more melee infantry, myself - you're Russia, you should have hundreds of thousands of them, and...wait...why am I helping you?

Right but my infantry is mostly angry men in their 60's who are drunk and undisciplined

I'll hae to Rely On my Heavy Cavalry, Cossacks, and my Royal Infantry, the Ones who weren't conscripted.

I'm worried about facing Highlanders. I know they'll be in the game - they fought as the front line in almost all crucial battles the British fought.
And I know that they can take an elephant charge with their bayonets. That's the only thing that's worrying me.
Other than that, my troops are perfectly suited to the environments in which they'll be fighting.

Not Turks, Ottomans - could by anything from around the Middle East. It's sort of like how Britain is not England, but was founded by and still includes Scotland. And Wales, but Wales was actually conquered, same as Northern Ireland.

And I meant Mamluks and elephants on the steppes

When it gets to winter or the forests I'll switch to guerrilla warfare with my pressgangs.

But Guerialla Warfare is no good in Russia, Slash and Burn and Flanking will do the trick.

Slash and burn has been used by residents of Scotland for thousands of years. Russia was a late arrival to it (prior to the fourteenth century, the Mongols did it for them ).

But don't worry, I was planning on a bit of slashing and burning too

Could someone just throw the last few people in alliances? And to a mod: could this be made into some sort of signing up thread to, if not a single multiplayer (it might not be possible), a tournament celebrating ETW's release?

To Gallow: I'll send Cossacks to HArras you, then Just round you out with My Infantry to Territory not suitable for an army to stay in shape

Good luck covering three fronts

And the Scottish cultures have practised slash and burn for longer, trust me. Not that it's the intention to slash and burn your own land...

Nominate any combination of me, Daelon, Ventory, and LoH for the best duo/trio in the nominations thread in the RLT, by the way, kthxbi.

To Daelon: Meanwhile I Will learn RUssian BAttle formations and study up on previous Wins and Losses to the Swedish Military

That way I can learn Russi's Mistakes in the losses and Great Moves from its wins

Good Luck Daelon, We both need it.

To Gallow: The Three Fronts will certainly be hard to cover

actually 4 if you count the Scandies from the North

But Like Hannibal You will have ahrd time hving Elephants coming through the Caucses so Cavalry goes there As for the Plains I'll use Cannons and High Quality Infantry in thsoe cases, backed up by Lower Quality Musketmen.

Oh,

I wonder if there are only certain maps in which you can use earthworks, or if they count as siege points.

I'll need a lot of calvary steaks.

To Daelon:

No all type of terrain except for mountains is workable, just might take more time to work on rough terrain

Your Strenghts That Worry Me
1.Cavalry Steaks
2.Large Masses of Infantry and High Quality Infantry
3.You are Farther ahead in technology than I... for now.
