Hi.

I’m new to the whole game of course and am just getting used to how to play it in the demo before I get the full game :) .

Now the medium desert level in the demo has anyone actually won this battle it is driving me a bit crazy I have had about 6 swings at it and come so close down to a last group its incredible. Mostly a slaughter of course.... the closest I have come was I backed my artillery up on the hill and used the Calvary in front to protect them from a Calvary charge. :o

I was just wondering has anyone else got any ideas what are these Ghan looking enemies weakness...... they seem to just charge you in number. Any ideas? To completing this battle?

The Great Pyramids one you are referring to, right? If not I'm sorry for that, but here's how I beat it.

-The Egyptians have cavalry, lots of it. Your best hope is to merge your 2 forces.

-Set up lines after lines of infantry. The cavalry will either go after the first line and get shot by the other lines or go to the cannons where they'll take heavy casualties from musket fire.

-Have your cavalry engage enemy cavalry going for your cannons.

-"IF" you destroy the cavalry the enemy infantry are easy pickings. It's hard to take them down, but if you do, you win :cool:

Completed it finaly a victory ill tell you how I did it:

I sent my line infantry in seeing there worthless….. then I blew the hell out of my own men and the enemy with my atilery after mass murdering the lot I then sent in my cavalry and raked the remaining men and ran them down like grass.

I killed all my line infantry in artilery fire but line infantry men are replaceable loosing the battle was not an option. :D

I hid my infantry then ran my cavalry all around the desert until the enemy got too tired to chase me anymore. That's how I've been winning every battle in the full game ironically. Not very honorable or glorious, but with a stupid AI, you work with what you have! :)

put ur infantry on the hill at the back. position ur artillery in the narrow valley between the two hills. line up like 3 infantry units facing the artillery as well as 2 cavalry. when they charge ur artillery wipe them out. i killed 2/1 ratio with this

Fantastic it works too…… its is certainly true that if you use the land and position your units well you can come out with fantastic kill ratios.
