I play every nation.
i am see you Daddio
What? No love for the bavarian musket hats?
Probably Ukraine, Russia, Algeria and Turkey.
On the contrary, my favorite nation Saxony has not yet been announced, and who knows whether will ever be in the remake.
France and England, because 1939
If algeria, turkey, russia, etc would be more balanced in strength compared to other nations, i think that many more would play them.
I hope that the point of the topic is about how to improve the not-played nations so that they actually get played!?
Topić is How to make historical - not balanced
Its a game. So making algeria historically correct means yhat players who use this nation online will always loose no matter what.
Sounds so fun to play...
It might be done like this: an algerian archer is weaker than a musketer, i understand that. So at least the building speed for them could be increased so that the combined army strenght is similar to the one of stronger nationns - at least for the multiplayer.
For offline campaign just place smaller armies so its harder to play for the algerian player.
I know thats a hot topic. I just placed one of many opinions.
After playing England for a while I'm going to force myself to random so I can get better at all the nations. One of my problems in other strategy games is that I only play one or two nations. Then my ELO goes up because I get better at them quite fast but if I choose to play a different nation I lose because my opponents at that ELO level are better at the nation they picked than I am with the one I chose.
turkey & algeria
Im from Poland so Poland cuz we beat the shit out of all countries in europe back then WINGED HUSARS FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!
It couldn't be more far from reality.
Note also that hungary invented the winged husars, Poland just coppied them.
It's still not the topic of this thread you all should better open a "historical debate" or a "debate around the PLC commonwealth" thread for this kind of thing it would be a lot more pratical and not of topic.
Foeurdr, I think that starting New topic at this moment in Center of discussion is not practical.
The entire conversation can be moved to a new thread but it will need the help of Daddio to do so.
I think we all agree that the winged hussar was an awesome cavalry which proved its efficiency on the battlefield, and that it's one of the best among all the cavalry of its time.
Nobody here is trying to say that the PLC wasn't a great power or that winged hussar aren't good, but maybe it needs to be put into perspective like the spanish army had in XVIth early XVIIth century the reputation of one of the best army, the swedish army during the thirty years war had the reputation of the best organised army, the prussian army in the XVIIIth century the reputation of best trained army for exemple. Their reputation didn't stop them suffer some defeat sometimes crushing. And when we analyze and compare them to other army we sometimes realise that finally there were other as good but who didn't had their renown.
Furious Peasant the link about the cavalry was really nice, I don't understand german but the lithography were really nice showing equipment, way of fighting, organisation, etc.
[PR]Ernest the book of Radoslaw Sikora exist in an edition in polish, english, and french.
You should all know by now that when you do not show respect for others in this forum you will be deleted. Personnel attacks will not be tolerated.
I go to work, and sign on this morning to find this thing totally out of control. This was an innocent post about what nations you would least like to play in a game. and degenerated into attacks back and forth.
Stop the personal flaming, and please stay on topic.
I think nationalism it's quite a big issue in post sovietic countries, as we can see in this topic. But I understand it, it's quite logical to recreate various national myths in a celebrative logic. For exemple, I wouldn't think logical to exalt (stupid exemple) the Grand Ducal fleet of Tuscany in order to "defend my country", as me in the XXI century I have absolutely nothing to do with that specific thing of the XVII century, but I can use it as a rethorical instrument to celebrate myself, my contemporary society, presenting an eligible "ancestor" as directly linked with myself. It's an interesting subject and a widespread use of the past, both for national celebration and legitimation.
Anyway, to bring back this topic to his subject, I'll probably play Poland the least... I'm joking! I won't probably play Piedmont (Is it there at the release or I'm just dumb?)
