Written by Tony James

Continued from page 1

Archers are very effective against light troops and mounted archers are a good way to harass enemy troops. Always keep archers them away fromrepparttar infantry and cavalry. Put them behind your infantry whenrepparttar 146590 enemy is close and protect them with your cavalrywhen necessary. If you haverepparttar 146591 opportunity to flankrepparttar 146592 enemy using archers,make sure you take off skirmish mode and attack, you will catchrepparttar 146593 enemy off guard. Whenrepparttar 146594 enemy is far away putrepparttar 146595 archers inrepparttar 146596 front to shoot arrows asrepparttar 146597 enemy approaches then bring them behind.

E. Fatigue

Your units will slowly or quickly get fatigued based on their actions. Use this to your advantage by forcing attacking armies to march to you and by running only when necessary.

F. Terrain

Userepparttar 146598 terrain to your advantage. When fighting near or in a forest, lurerepparttar 146599 enemy and launch surprise attacks. Place one or two units out inrepparttar 146600 open while you hiderepparttar 146601 rest of your army inrepparttar 146602 forests. However, remember that archers perform poorly near trees. Also, remember that generals are not hidden in forests. When you are fighting on a map with a slope, try to controlrepparttar 146603 higher ground and avoid an uphill battle. Units move very slowly when marching uphill and attack much less effectively;repparttar 146604 opposite is true downhill If you haverepparttar 146605 option to wait outrepparttar 146606 battle andrepparttar 146607 weather doesnít suit your army, wait untilrepparttar 146608 weather changes. Some units are better suited to certain weather condtions than others. Read unit descriptions to find out more details about each units ideal figting conditions. Some terrain such as mountains is impassible to your armies. Try to find an alternate route. Certain choke points such as bridges are important strategic locations. Defending a bridge is much easier than defending on an open plain. You can also hide your whole army onrepparttar 146609 campaign map in a wooded area to launch surprise attacks on an enemy army.

G. After they flee

Whenrepparttar 146610 enemy starts to flee, continuerepparttar 146611 battle rather than end it so you can use your cavalry and attack dogs to run overrepparttar 146612 fleeing enemies. You can gain more experience for your units this way. Using your general's cavalry to run over routing units is a quick way to gain experience and skills forrepparttar 146613 general.

H. Attacking with multiple armies

Whenever possible, try to attack with multiple armies by surroundingrepparttar 146614 terrain aroundrepparttar 146615 enemy with your forces. When one of your armies is adjacent,repparttar 146616 AI is in control ofrepparttar 146617 army and helps inrepparttar 146618 fight. Any type of reinforcement usually helps winrepparttar 146619 battle but be wary ofrepparttar 146620 AI poorly managing your valuable Generals and armies.

Continued from page 1

Melee: If you are shooting someone and you can walk up to them, melee them if you can. Sometimes it is better to back up rather than melee. For example if you are dual wielding and did not getrepparttar first shot off against a single wielder, back off so you kill him rather than get meleed. Donít forget that you lunge slightly when you melee, so use that to your advantage.

Where to walk: Try to flank people as much as possible. For example if you are on top of big base sniping and you see someone onrepparttar 146589 radar coming up, look through or jump throughrepparttar 146590 hole behind you and take them out. On ivory tower, if you are atrepparttar 146591 top and see someone coming from dark side, jump down a level and flank them. Do not run into rooms with more than one enemy, let them come to you or weaken them with grenades first, it is much easier to kill them that way. Summary: The #1 tip I can give you is to aim forrepparttar 146592 head no matter what weapon you are using, exceptrepparttar 146593 shotgun. You will kill them a lot faster. Other than that, learnrepparttar 146594 maps andrepparttar 146595 weapon combos that work best in different situations.
