was it just a battle, or a campaign?
I miss playing ETW.. damn computer, gotta get a new PSU really soon
Nah it WAS a battle in the campaign. I'm currently challenging the Egyptians for world domination -- two super powers colliding. So far I think I can win, but it's going to be a long long long bloody battle.
Actually, that question was for CPS :) I figured you played the campaign (can't have reinforcements in custom battles).

Ohh sounds epic! I'm having one like that now, playing as carthage. Huge showdown against egypt, but I'm definitely winning. The real challenge will come when I advance further north. I control all of north africa, spain and all of italy. I'm currently moving further east to secure that front, can't risk having swarms of egyptian armies attacking me.

After that, I'll move into greece and up north to the unexplored parts of the balkans and eastern europe. I have no idea what I'll find there. But I do know that when I look at the statistics, Brutii has more than double the military than me, which definitely does scare me. Thus I will try to avoid them for as long as possible.
I see were you are trying to reach: "how can a 17 year old kid have such a thinking like this? why doesnt he wants to be like normal teens who whana get rich? and his plan actually makes sense, but is too damn revolutionary and good at the same time than is still doubthfull if it works..." - Damaso

Yea in my game the Scipii have a massive massive force. I'm delaying attacking them as long as possible. I currently control all of Greece and have wiped out the Greeks and the Macedonians, and am working on the Thracians.

I'm pretty much forced into attacking the Egyptians -- it wasn't my plan from the start. First, I wanted to firmly control all of the Balkans before taking on Egypt (finish off Thrace), but they have expanded all the way up the Middle East and are starting to encroach on my eastern territories. Thus attacking them is the only way to defend myself. I'm confident that I will win, and have a few evil tricks up my sleeve regarding massive sea-borne invasions.  8)

Recently, in Empire, I have made a point of not annexing nations and painting the map French white.  It is enjoyable.

Yeah, I've been having that problem.   Put down two revolutions, one Alsatian revolt, one French Guyanese   rebellion, two Indian uprisings in Upper Canada, one people's rebellion in Montreal, and also the Acadian Rebels beat me in a guerilla campaign and now own Acadia as an independent nation.  The Americans have also thrown off British chains in Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania, (with my help) and they purchased Maine from me.

wel,   my problem is a bit different

the 13 Colonies are under my (Royal French) command, 
from time to time the Brits land there with a few troops, capture one or two cities and than I recapture them.
Every now and then the Indians there declared war and I just answer with a punitive expedition. Sad but true, I just do not have the resources right now to break their will and get everything under the control of the French crown.

Maharats just became in the early 1740 really big and so I had to stop my conquest for the whole new World (I mean the part that is today known as north America). After a very expensive war with them I was able to get the south part of India with 2 big cities and Goa (techno, drugs, Party) under my control and sign a peace treaty with these Indians and force them now with 3 churches and two priests to become catholic!

Then again, the Brits tried to land in Maryland, I could push them back but that showed me where the next battles take place. I raised in Army in France and started to upgrade my fleet so that it can compete with the Brits (My Army is superb, but the fleet is outdated….). My goal is to take London, burn it to the ground, destroy everything, every harbor and farm, just everything and than give it back to the redcoats and force them to sign a peace treaty witch is going to be as nasty as the peace of Versailles.

Just, lets say 4 turns before that fun should start riots started.
In France they started to raise an army with the flag of the republic, in the Elsass the German minority thought they could joint the French traitors and ask for an own country. The 13 Colonies got from that a load of rebellious spirit and took out the stars and stripes banner. Right now I really have to fight hard to prevent that my nice white French royal catholic empire is not going to break into peaces. The battle with the Brits is right now not an option, not even a goal for the next 4 or 5 turns…  I just hope that they are not going to take advantage of my unpleasant situation right now.

So Tedacious.  You were right.  Fuchs sucks at Empire Total War.

In relation to my Total War -related posts earlier, I bought the Total War pack on steam last night! It was an insane deal. I got Medieval Total War II and it's expansion, Rome Total War (which I already have) and it's Alexander expansion (which I don't), and Empire Total War. All for 20 BUCKS!!!

Once I get some free time there are going to be some epic times to be had.

If I didn't already have Empire, I would totally buy that.

Ted, have you ever played Fuchs online?  He really is terrible. He just rushed all his forces into my line infantry.  I mean, really.  He's like a goddam Indian (of the Native American variety).

Hahahahha! Yes I have, once!
I do remember something like that! Then he made up some rules that cavalry should not get to attack infantry, what the hell good is cavalry then?

Yeah, he wanted me to get out of my formation and attack him with only one unit on one of his units.  I told him he was an idiot.
