The game started out with a triple rush on one of there guys. We took his tc down and then went to the next town and they fought us off. Then they went on the offensive and about had us. A marathon game that could have went either way. It wasn't looking good for a while but I got my economy going and then started tributing to sniper to get him in age 5. We just barely pulled it out and a couple of times some on out team were going to resign, but we talked them out of it and glad that they stuck around.
What can anyone say..?
Superb from start to finish…
Definitely among the three best I’ve seen – and may well be the best of those overall.
Exemplary efforts on everyone’s part and some brilliant fighting.
How you guys managed to wall off your R.E.’s (even behind double walls for most of the breadth of the field) after the French several times slipped some heavy horse in your rear and cut down scores of civilians, and While simultaneously keeping up your massive inertia on the quite distant front, is just impressive in-itself.
This one is of the ‘epic’ variety and well worth a viewing by anyone with machine enough to handle Eight fully mobilized Civilizations making every effort to cut through the hoards on the front to reach the enemy’s rear en mass, in large-scale frontal assault one after another after another – and some being continuous for lengthy periods.
One for the ‘Recorded Favorites’ folder – and I don’t put anything in mine lightly.
A hearty three ‘Hurrahs!’ for each one & all of you..!
Thanks for sharing this one here as well, Prince Joker (I think I’ll even watch it again from your perspective, as I’m most fond of the Russian Civ. and am Always Russian myself).
I think you may have here disproved my belief that after the Colonial, Streletys are basically ‘meaningless’ on a field that is familiar with field artillery, unless you have No Other choice.
You achieved a lot with them on an extremely violent field with more than the average amount of artillery thundering all the while.
Thanks for the eye-opener…
I’ll watch again and see how you’ve really used those units to such seemingly great effect.
