    A sub forum sounds like a good idea but some of the more major non-playable factions deserve a spot here, factions such as the Mughals, maybe Portugal and possibly Persia.

    Have we already explored the possibility of creating a Technology guide, Naval Battles guide (I could use one of those) or other strategy discussions of a smaller scale? I would appreciate something such as a "How to deal with Native American Cavalry" guide and small little tidbits of help to take on regional armies and the like.

    I think we have do wait for some poor, bored soul to write us a guide first, then once that was moved to the guides section people would probably start giving their own tips.
    There's no greater incentive to share knowledge than to prove somebody else is wrong

    Hi, I just wanted to stop by and share the link for my new guide on Sweden. I see that the first guide I wrote is already linked here.

    i think that the idea of regional minor guides is the best suggestion here. we could have:

    Indian Minors:

    Mughals
    Mysore

    American Minors:

    Cherokee
    Iroqious
    Pirates
    New Spain
    New France
    13 Colonies
    Louisiana
    Inuits
    Plains Nations
    Pueblo Nations

    European would be done differently. it would have regions in it like so:

    West/Central European Regions:

    Italy(Italian States, Venice, Genoa, Knights of St. John)

    West Europe(Hannover, Portugal, Savoy, Saxony, Westphalia)

    North East Europe(Denmark, Courland, Bavaria)

    North Africa(Morocco, Barbary States)

    Middle East(Persia, Crimean Khanate, Dagestan, Georgia)

    I am sure that there may be more for each, but I cannot get on right now. I did not include emergent factions because they are as of yet unplayable.

    With all the various changes made to the game, it wouldn't be a bad idea to start over.

    None of the factions play the way they did in 1.1 when this was set up and the various threats have changed considerably. The difficulty levels now make a big difference in how you approach playing a faction now as well.

    Indeed that's true, and the heavy handed update approach almost ensures that people are playing the newest release. If such a suggestion had been made before 1.4 I might've suggested to "wait until the AI's being worked on", but it apparently is, so here we are!

    I'm hesitant to outright scrap the posts, but maybe an archive sub-forum set aside for 1.0-1.4 strategies with a fresh set of threads for post 1.5?

    That is Great Work, Monk.

    This should give new players a clearer picture of what they are up against.

    If I may be so bold as to make one further suggestion...

    A spot for General Guides for Diplomacy, Economics & Trade, and Basic tactics for Land & Naval Combat that apply to most or all factions.

    I made a shot guide to starting diplomacy that might help some people, https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showthread.php?t=122279,
    if you think it is good enough for the guides section.

    It will be hard enough to find in Parliament in a few days and we have too much stickyed already.

    So?

    Would you treat a guest badly just because they are going to leave soon? We (any member that's been here a while) is a host to any new members, no matter how long they stay.

    I can't argue with that, but he could have at least had the common courtesy to read the rules, or use common sense to post a new thread/post in a relevant thread, not something completely different. pretty obvious he didnt even read the rest of the thread. Typical TWC.

    I would advise you to either go learn the meaning of hypocrisy, or re-check its meaning, my friend.

    Regardless,
    pever out.

    Kudos pevergreen -- comment is spot on.

    Prussian, the mod staff tends to encourage and suggest for quite some time before handing out warnings -- nothing wrong with being polite.
