What difficulty are you playing on?
Playing on hard because I like to be an asshole to myself lol. Really, though I like having to thoroughly think through every decision and it makes the war scenarios feel way more epic and realistic because somebody could die at any moment and you never know for sure what your opponent will do. Enemy critical hits are bullshit though.
. . . . . . you lost like ALL your knights. And you lost one of your ladies so now you've lost one of your potential children. And ironically that potential child was also a knight.
Piece of advice: Don't lose ANY more of your females. If you want to regain your lost numbers you are going to need to recruit those children in the future
Ugh I know I'm really screwed with knight tanks later on, but surprisingly ever since they've died I've been doing really well (probably because I got a lot smarter about tactics). Way early on I thought the knights and cavaliers were supposed to be tanks so I'd pair them with each other and have them charge recklessly into battle which obviously turned out to be a HORRIBLE mistake.
Stahl though-there is no damn excuse for. I babied that man and was careful and always had him kill enemies to level up and he was STILL killed by someone like 4 levels lower than him. Stahl is easily the worst character. Though he also taught me the lesson that if you baby troops too much it's just as bad as being reckless with them.
I was thinking of reclassing some guys into knights or cavaliers once they get to twenty including my personal character. Any advice? Thinking mainly Donnel.
