Thread: Finally ! - Conquored the World

    Default Finally ! - Conquored the World

    I finally conquored the world ! It is my first TW game (1st RTS other than WWII/Modern). Cool game! Timurids were the biggest challenge- assassins were needed/used. Got tired of colonies rebelling, and inquisators. Lucky I read a forum post re Aztecs, or i would have sent an insufficient force across ocean. I managed this on my 3rd Long Campaign win as England. Final Victory screen- bit of a disapointment- dialogue but no movie, just a black screen.

    Well, congratulations! And which faction will you play next?

    I usually skip campaigns after several turns (50-100) because I'm getting bored. Always wanna try out some new strategy or units.

    Congratulations! Personally I only usually play the Short Campaigns as I don't have the tenacity to keep battling my way to global domination.

    Free444,

    Congradulations and welcome to the board!

    So what did you find worked well/poorly against the Aztecs as England? And what did you deal with the Mongols?

    For Timurids and Mongols and Aztecs, I used a total mix of units, but always included bombast and Culvern(sp?) artillery(sometimes alot).. had calvary, bowmen, sometimes spear-or dismounted knights. I only fought 50% of the battles without 'auto-resolve'.. on 'easy'; most of my fought out battles got a little chaotic to say the least..assassins and especially spies were vital, for me, versus Aztecs(they 'disappear' quick too!)- I took 8 armies to the new world.

    I've conquered most of the world. I've never actually been to the new world, as I've typically conquered every old world province by the time you get the ability to cross the ocean.

    if you couldn't see the movie your gfx card probably wasn't good enough to
    support it i think. honestly i barely just by with the unit sizes on small, and it's
    still laggy with a full stack

    erm, is that the movie for victory conditions met or for the total domination?
    Is there even a movie for total domination? ^^

    I am not sure about the vanilla versions (1.00-1.02) but I played the 100 years war campaign on Lands to Conquer, and I got seperate screens for victory conditions, and a better screen for taking all provinces.

    So, if that's any indication, yes there is something there for you if you own every province. It's pretty much the same screen and music but with different text.
