15th May 2005, 19:46
Who will you play as when you first get the game, britan,france,russia, austria or prussia. Right now im thinking britain or russia.

15th May 2005, 19:54
Britain then probally france :cool:

15th May 2005, 20:33
Vive La France!

France for sure, as for Quebec was created from France, as Quebec is my home:)

(type name here)
15th May 2005, 20:40
:rolleyes: France

15th May 2005, 21:40
Sweden! (Need to anex Sweden first with Prussia or Russia, then making Stockholm the capital of this new glorious empire)


Prussia or Russia will it be. I will probably start out with Prussia. Se you on the battlefield!


15th May 2005, 22:52
Without doubt, the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Partly because of the obvious, I'm British, but also for the greater challenge of needing to juggle a stable land, and naval force effectively

15th May 2005, 23:17
Russia here, If I can conquer Europe those pesky Bolsheviks wont be able to overthrow my beloved Romanov Dynasty in a couple hundred years... Long Live the Czar!

15th May 2005, 23:33
Long live lennin!

The Penitant Man
16th May 2005, 10:53
Long Live Trotsky!

Oh, I forgot, he got an ice pick. It made his ears burn.

16th May 2005, 11:01
France...for conquer England, an old dream :rolleyes:

16th May 2005, 11:34
Great Britain Obviously, Patriot here. :cool:

Here we come France :eek:

16th May 2005, 12:16
Long live Marx! (Moderate Socialist right here)

I'll play the Brits first, then Russia, then either France or Prussian and last of all Austria. I can't wait for it to come out here :o

Austria, why? because it's a cool empire and very challenging.

Gotta play France first, then Russia, Prussia, Austria, and finally England. I figure England will be easy so I'm not in a rush to play them. Hopefully the diplomatic AI makes the game a challenge for the French.

16th May 2005, 15:22
Me ill paint europe red :)

Vive La Angletaire (sp) but you get the pitcure ;)

o/t .. Did you know that Wellington was the only none royal to have a regiment named after him for his victory at waterloo :)

"fortune favours the brave" regimental motto for the Duke of Wellington regiment

16th May 2005, 17:10
like the french way of saying England there Mr.Yorkie :D

16th May 2005, 17:24
I'm going to have to take a close look at the various empires before I decide which one suites my style best or at least hits me at the moment as being as being iteresting, with out knowing anything about their particular attributes I'm leaning towards Russia or England.

16th May 2005, 18:26
England, build up a huge navy and have the satisfaction of crushing any ships that come near your island! Plus, English units are just the classiest...

16th May 2005, 18:55
Russia! This time taking ottos down... and Alexander to Alexandria ;)
Samarkand/persia going down just because i like straight maps. Also ofcourse because Alexander can be no worse than his namesake. Too bad india isnt there.. or they would get to know a new master!

Now for a possibly more intriguing game: Austria.
Diplomatically buying the whole world... afterall, they are supposed to have a bonus at doing stuff like that.

16th May 2005, 20:16
Definatly Prussia! Then Austria.

16th May 2005, 20:39
How could you not pick the grand motherland of russia?!

16th May 2005, 20:46
Because I intend on destroying Russia! lol

16th May 2005, 20:57
because i intend to make russia my great ally, to destroy GREAT BRITAIN! :D

16th May 2005, 22:01
i will play all the historic campaigns using every team

I believe it would be rather interesting to see hordes of Cossacks charging into dense formations of J├Ągars. Russia looks to be the best in most aspects of the game.

16th May 2005, 23:36
It's truly a shame they couldn't ahve the campain is MP: seeing you guys beat heads trying to achieve your goals would keep me laughing for a long time, with cries of "Vive la Anglitaire" (sp) and "For Mother Russia!" it would be rather entertaining... especially since some want to control the seas, another to buy the world and then the typical, but fun, take over the world. Cheers, you guys are great! :)

I'll probably start with Britain (simply for the home team feeling ;) ) But I'll probably get round to trying each of the different factions in turn. I've just downloaded and played the demo. I can't wait for this to come out!

17th May 2005, 15:51
I wonder how long (how many turns) it'll take before I can begin to start producing the elite troops - riflemen, household cavalry etc.
After conquering the world with GB, I'll play as the French, then probably ... um... Prussia.

It's truly a shame they couldn't ahve the campain is MP

An MP campaign game gets asked about often but with turn-based map games that's almost impossible to do as real time MP, PBEM is about the only way I suspect any map level game turn would work and then only for 2 players but IG hasn't been built to do this. Also the map turn files will be pretty big I suspect.

17th May 2005, 19:11
it would be great to play LAN campagne and conquer the world together or try to destroy eachother....

I think i'll first choose england....then France,Russia and the rest....I think this game will rock!!!!

to conquer the world....you will need to win like 51 battles...+ sea fights and you cna do that with 5 countries...do some trading...and stuff...think hwo much playing time this game has....an dyou still have the mutiplayer en historic battles :eek: I get insane:P

17th May 2005, 19:32
Or you could just peacefully take over each country and never have to raise a musket...

17th May 2005, 22:13
Nah that would never happen, you gotta at least kill some of the french... :D

17th May 2005, 22:41
IM totaly going to wipe out napoleon with an army of household calvary, Those guys ROCK.

18th May 2005, 02:58
Does anyoe know if cossacks will be espcially powerful? I would be russia if they were.

Captain Darling
18th May 2005, 12:57
I'd imagine they would be. They're so famous that I can't see the developers not doing something special with them...

I'm going to go for a similar army makeup to my RTW legions, mostly infantry with a few cavalry units for support and flanking roles and a bit of artillary support. We'll see how well it does, and then I may or may not make some changes depending on how my battles go!
