Got slaughtered in a 2v2 today: we were a 1st Lt and a 2nd Lt against a Lt-Col and a Corp, which should have been a fair match but the Lt-Col's greater experience and expertise more than balanced his partner's lack of these. We put up a fight - the game lasted 40 minutes with masses of carnage.

Anyway, the Lt Col attacked with a huge mass of artillery - 15 field guns and 3 heavy cannon, escorted by numerous skirmishers, ruyters, musketeers and Waargelders. I met them with my similar but smaller army (including culverins) and was smashed. Then came the great feat of arms.

The surviving attacking artillery, 5 FGs and 1 cannon, mostly damaged, was bombarding my TC which was also being attacked by skirmishers. A group of ruyters was standing around not far away. 3 hussars popped out of my nearby stable and went for the guns - the Lt Col must have been busy building banks or something, because the ruyters didn't react immediately and the 3 hussars destroyed all 6 guns.

A genuine Charge of the Light Brigade, and the most enjoyable bit of a highly instructive game. My first encounter with a 2000+ player.

I'm sure this will prompt any number of similar anecdotes - let's hear them.

That is hilariously excellant. Good job lol

Reminds me of when my TC was about to go down to about 45 pikes and my Ronin shipment arrived... massive slaughter.

once I was playin a spainiard who massed 12 falconets at one time. He had just won a battle against me and all i had left was one hackapell. For some unknown reason he moved his army forward but left the falcs 2 screens behind. My one hackapell killed every single falconet. It was the funnies thing ever. That guy must have been really pissed.

This reminds of me of a game i played long time ago. I was french, agaist a russian..

I was like dying, and my tc and base was swarmed by mass strelets, but at the same time, the three cuir ship arrived from tc and 5 cuirs from stable.

Lets just say, it was hard to watch. I lost 1 cuir, he lost all his strelets.

In another game, i was russians against another russian. The guy didnt micro his herds, and had around 15 villies (out of like 20) gather food far away from tc. He did a pretty good gren rush against me. While I was being attacked, I sent a 5 cossak ship to his base. All 15 villies dead. He never noticed until all were dead. He pulled bak his grens. I out boomed him and slaughtered his base with mass opris.

I won a game because an ottoman was so busy trying to micro his abus guns that he didn't notice the 3 oprinichiks in his base killing and sieging everything

i did the same exact thing to an otto player, but with 11 opri's

the funny thing is he would have won if he actually sent his troops back for some defense. it was kindaf funny watching those guys raid everything before the otto could take down my tc.

all i had left was about 12 villies, a mill, stable, and 2 blockhouses when it was all over, but still managed to win

I had an Ottoman in my base ransacking with his Janissaries; all my strelets were dead and i only had one batch on the way. Just as he was about to destroy my last blockhouse, the strelets popped out and I aged up to fortress with 17 strelets (impeccable timing) they beat them back easily, and one 2falc card later i was tearing up his forward base and what was left of his army.
Needless to say he pulled the plug

That reminds me of a russian attack to my Tc with strelets and cossacs in skirmish.... My army was concentrated at another enemy and it would take them forever to come but my Landckechnet arrived and it was 4 or 8 landckechnet i dont remember but there were abot 20 strelets and sudently theyve all fell down and the cossacks were 6 or 7 and i still had 1 remainig lanckechnet

I may be wrong in numbers but thats what happened

And the 50 thousand Janissarys came upon the byzantine walls Constantinople and the byzantine empire were about to end..

Ah yes, if landsknechts appear in the middle of a crowd of strelets they'll slaughter them. Just like ronin in a crowd of pikemen. Great fun.
