To up the ante of ETW's release, we have made ourselves a tournament for everyone to play in. Being realistically demanding we have made 2 separate alliances, therefore all players will be involved and a nice rivalry will form.


Current Roster:


Allied Force #1:

LoH - Britain (As of right now, he is thy ruly one)
Ventory - Russia
Ischenous - Persia
Catabre - Please choose different faction! thanks.

Allied Force #2:

Gallow - Ottoman Empire
Daelon - Scandia country (Ie, Sweden/Danemark)
Jomas - Scandia Country
Angelo - France
Spartan - Poland

Current players up for grabs:

Jupiter - Britain...
Boe - United Prov
Ischenous - Britain
Trottski - Britain
Spartan... The wookie faction? (Ewoks included?)
CaesarVincens - Spain (Still deciding)
Wool - Prussia
General - 13 colonies
+More, let me know if I forgot

Currently we have 5+ players fighting for Britain, I think that 1v1 tourny will be interesting if we do follow through.

When trading players, if you wish to enlist a player onto your alliance, it must be agreed upon all active players in this thread. Effective next player trade.

Here discuss sides and tactics, trade players, talk smack, and more.

Master which? The heavy calvary? Or the little pistolero calvary? Perhaps the well-trained Queens gaurd of Danemark who can shoot an apple off your head hundreds of yards away? WHICH?? WHICH?!?!

Personally the best will be to properly learn how to use building garrisons and how to bait them for artillery.

From which faction? Just curious, heavy calvary for one faction could quite possibly be light calvary for another.

im more of a infantry man
i enjoy it when its only humans fighting
so i probably will have to train my cavalry skills if i want to play russia on my grand campaign
the only time i think i used cavalry well was when i had a pure army of cavalry and the had a mixed army of dismounted knights and spearmen
lucky me that almost all of my cavalry where ranged and i could just fire arrows at the large clump they made
and kill all the dismounted knights that strayed to far from the clump

After the campaign, someone should write up a "History of the Eighteenth Century". Let everyone know what really happened, none of this malarkey you read in school.

Well my community college offers very little for history, recent cuts in the edumacation system left the school with no choice other than to cut back on class choices. So the classes I did take last semester are no longer there, and I didn't learn much. I'm studying for an associates in Astronomical Sciences right now before I transfer to a 4 year.


Yeh. I so hope SEGA releases a full campaign mode soon after the release so that we can have like 10 people playing at once on the campaign map.

You should know by now that that is my purpose in life

I was under the impression that ETW would be the only TW game Ventory intended to play. The fact that he is heavy cavalry and I am light and heavy infantry should definately make this game interesting, especially when you consider where we are fighting.
As for my experience, I played RTW and BI for a long time, mostly with the barbarian factions (especially the Iberians and Gauls). I don't think there's much of the game I haven't seen.
I play M2TW and Kingdoms now, and have played mostly as Scotland, Ireland, the Apachean tribes, the Lithuanians, and Denmark. Still an infantry specialist, but with some experience with light cavalry and in facing artillery. I'm also very experienced with guerrilla warfare and raiding - so watch out for my fleets across the Black Sea, Ventory

No Worries, I love using Heavy Infantry as well

I always play the Rusians, and Have lethal combination of Boyar Sons, Tsars Guard, and Dismounted Boyar SOns

It works well against any western factions


I am very excited to use Cossacks and Eastern Moscow Troops... SHould be fun

Remember that when I defeat LoH in that custom battle challenge, I'll have Highlanders

A guerrilla campaign in the Russian forests and the Baltic would be my version of paradise.

Gallow's lifelong dream is to become a poetic historical ETW player.


With Spain being in the fold now, whoever would like to take dibs on it and be assigned to an alliance I can get you setup asap. Post in this thread and let me know, Thanks.

Whoever plays Spain should join alliance one. But the choice is theirs.

Right

Gallow, do presume that the Turks have quite the good Navy?

You know Peter the Great Created the Russian Navy

And he wasn't making galleys either.

Galleys pwn noob arse if you have enough of them. Just ask Somerled or Good John of Islay.

And the navy is only so I can get across the Black Sea, I don't mean to stage massive wars with it alone.

And it's the Ottomans, remember, not necessarily just Turks you'll be facing. Kurds, in particular, will make you cry

Yep. And the Ottomans have those nice dragon ships or whatever it is I've heard of as being total pwnage.

Gallow, for the love of internet slang don't say "pwnage", I am pretty sure your finger didn't accidentally miss the "o" key and it hit "p" instead...

Dragon ships? I thought that was, some greek navy with the greek fire and all that.
