I would guess I am some place between 5 and 7. That is not against the AI though.

I think most of us can rack up some amazing wins against the AI.

Of course neither is much like what happens in a real fire fight...

On ETW I've beaten a guy with a 20 win streak and beat him as my first opponent. (He told me. Very formidable opponent btw)

However that is at my best; I haven't really played TW in months now so I'm probably a 7 right now.

What rating would you need to be played by Russel Crowe in a Hollywood blockbuster in these here modern times?

Cuz I'd be that.

I think I'd be between 8 & 9 however my strong point would be defense. I think I have better luck when not over moving units. Offence seems a bigger challange because you have to move alot of units after the fight begins. I'm practicing and trying to improve my offense.

My first multiple battle:
No rules
I choose Spain. My ally tooke portugese. Cant remember what units
My ally got 2 stars, enemies 5 and 4
My ally was beaten, meanwhile i was fighting against russians. I tooke my grenadiers and guards against them, my only reserves. i tooke great risk and make only 1 men deep line against russians, so now i could flank russians. Soon first their unit rout, and so did Sweds(?)

I cant remember my cavalary movements, but probably i protect my inf when form thinner line.

I was there at waterloo, standing in old Guard`s sguare, then Force was with me, and i teleport in this forum

I think he may have ment it that way. And new blood is always good.

I meant Kocmoc Succi, and yes, it was a joke ; )

if you happen to read some of my past posts you'll be quickly convinced that i am among those that want this site alive and accessible while maintaining its unique character.

Taking out the junior system already proves a good move and kudos to those who pushed that option forward.

I read your post on the sticky thread, and added my thoughts ^

03-11-2011, 21:02
I read it with great interest Succi, i really appreciate your well thought out points.

03-11-2011, 22:02
I wouldn't say it was well thought out, more of a braindump!

Against the AI, I would rate myself as 5- Very Capable. On the other hand, I wouldn't rate being in charge of a Corporals Guard against many multi-player geniuses out there. At my age, I am lucky I can see the keyboard enough to beat the computer most of the time. I rate a solid 1- What's a general?

Just started playing

For Single Player AI -3
For Multiplayer - must be in negative :laugh4:

As a Land Commander a solid 10, I have a habit of racistly killing russians because i hate damn communists. My Hatred of Communism encourages me to make, as every opponent ive ever fought said "you are a idiot to charge like that" then they all die in my epic "suicide" charges. They didnt know that all my soliders have bombs attached to there backs. I can kill the entire enemy unit in 1 push of a button:laugh4:

I think I am an 8 against AI.

I win some awesome fights...

Even if, like Royce, my strong point is defence, there have been a couple of battles in which I really made my men dance: the dance a dance of broken lines. Suppose you have all these segments of men standing in line: you make them pivot towards the enemy to surround it, or towards your men to avoid being surrounded. One day I kept losing units, but the core ones where still standing; so, each time I won against a unit, advanced forward, then got charged and so I had to retreat back. In the end there were just two units left, and I was forced to make one unit pivot so that it was fighting back to back with the other one. I won the battle, but very narrowly. It was epic, and it was then I realized maybe I am better than I thought.

Hmmm...Not trying to brag or something but I'd rate myself around 8. I understand all the basics of warfare and have read Sun Tzu AoW xD. Anyway if anyone wants to fight with me or against me send me a pm with your steam acc.
