    How can I increase my army size fairly quickly? I'm at about 100 men and some of the other armies dwarf mine.

    Edited:

    The cap provided by the Leadership skill is really annoying.
    If you win some more renown battles, like defeating a large amount of enemies by yourself, you can slowly start to keep more people with you.

    Could also be that mixing intense grinding with M&B's easily exploitable combat mechanics inherently causes problems.

    I have a feeling that all the crazy spin bayoneters in Napoleonic Wars come straight from CRPG

    They probably do, though quite frankly, I've seen a shitload of that in Native duels now, there wasn't any of that shit before and it was strictly cRPG.

    I like to call them the wizard class, they try their best to summon tornadoes but they don't have the mana because their jumping back fleetfoot spell is always on, so instead they just whack you in the face with their wizard staff and robe of armored destruction.

    I've played cRPG for like 2 years now and I really refuse to end up as a wizard, I dislike spinning, it makes the game look retarded, I try my best to not exploit the broken combat mechanics of the game so I don't spin, I don't jump back and do 360s, I don't exploit hiltslashes and so on.

    You're not at a noticeable disadvantage if you have the same skill as them, it's only really retarded having to see them just training for their next circus show and getting skewered by the chainsaw haft of polearms, notably long spear and pike.

    hammers are not c-rpg exclusive and also not overpowered in my opinion.


    Also, my take on the spinning stab is that it's impossible to stab someone while hugging so thats why people stab the other way and turn back around.
    That's why i do it, but i hardly ever use it.

    Hammers are really OP in SP if you have high prisoner management. I had about 2 killed and 48 wounded or somewhere around that area in most battles on a high level character in one of my SP saves.

    Turning into your stabs is fine, spinning and doing full 360s or 720s or whatever the fuck else are not, this is just retarded.

    Oh god I just fucked up. I was assaulting a castle and all my units got murdered. This was on realistic saving too. So right now I have a band of twenty recruits, all my companions are either MIA or imprisoned, and my fief was burned to the ground. This game hates me.

    Basically, you create a new character in Warband, joing a cRPG server then when you log in on the website, top left, you'll have a list of all your characters.

    Line battles are silly imo because there's just not enough people for it. Pretending 30 people in a line is much just doesn't cut it for me.

    What the hell is with lancers in Napoleonic Wars, I see hundreds of lancers but I don't think I've ever seen a single one of them couch lance.

    I just ride in front of them while parrying downwards, their lance hits my parry, their horse keels and then I embed my sword in their face. Are people just not aware that you can couch?

    So, I've heard of this game, and I might get it, I'm pretty much already sold, but from what I've heard, it's hard to describe why its so good in words, any videos of moments that are truly epic? (By epic, I don't mean 'lololo this shit is epicz' I mean more like, massive battles, amazing kills, things that just make you want to play the game when you see them.)

    I only really know who you are because you're on the forum, I don't participate on the forum ever since my Patricia forum account got permabanned for stupid shenanigans by Meow.

    I remember fighting a few EU players on the EU duel server but I don't remember ever fighting you, so I know nothing about you outside of the forum.
    Did stuff like this.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3_Xxps8vM4

    Watch fullscreen max quality, zooming in done in battle 2.
    Sounds like a big ego, but I'm a really good player, honestly you may not see me around in cRPG anymore because of the amount of fucktards in the community, so we are gonna play Guild Wars 2 when it is out. Making our own guild with warband players

    My friend & I trained all our members (the older ones that been around for 2 years) personally with lots of hours invested in each member, so we've also been around as one of the most skilled clans, although nowadays we're pretty inactive, for the same reason stated above.

    They just suck. Majority of m&m players sucked so i guess that suckage kinda transferred to napoleon.

    Get your relationship with villages in the areas belonging to the factions that you want to recruit, and you can get 20-30 recruits at each village or a few militia.

    You can ask where companions are in taverns.

    I haven't got a video, but I thought this was pretty incredible, I was at an event hosted by the 84e with my regiment twice and both times the final "fun" match was a sea battle with small boats on a custom map. I posted pictures of the 1st one in the ingame media thread, heres a really epic moment from the second one:



    We are heading towards the enemy island to capture their flag when a cannon in the distance fires straight at us and hits the ship.



    The ship starts sinking rapidly. The water turning gray is from the cannon impact smoke.



    The smokey water clears and there is confusion amongst the small crew.



    I drown after falling off the boat and the people that survive the drop to the bottom drown too shortly after.



    There were 12 of us when we boarded the boat, and not a single person survived.

    Alright, so I'm playing the game, and doing p good, almost completely destroyed Saranid or whatever, and their last two castles are in the territory of the Rhodoks, so I just decided I'd ask for peace to strengthen a little bit before trying to attack them.



    wow really

    its not in your best interest to save your sorry ass when this is currently the map

    yes, that's what I did, I got good with the Vaegirs, became a vassal, realized I got enough shit from them, got out of my oath and took Asugan Castle, and in some strange strange happening, they offered peace ( i have no clue why, they usually don't do peace unless you have around 50 RTR. )
    From there I went to Saranid :V

    Get on bad terms with whoever you want to capture from, loot villages, attack caravan or something, when they hate you, you'll have the options to siege.

    By on your own, what do you mean? I'm assuming you mean with a party of troops and not by yourself only, like I, glorious king Astud, did. It's really simple, Asugan castle at the time wasn't garrisoned too heavily (about 130 or so). So I took it just by myself, no other troops at all. Nope. No siree.

    Although, I suppose a less skilled person might have to use troops, maybe they'd have to have somewhere around 170-200 or so.

    I don't think 80 is nearly enough, get more points in leadership.
