Shogun 2: Creative Assembly must Learn

I love the Total War Series, and although the Community is divided in regards to Avatar Conquest in Shogun 2, how you earn and level troops, etc. I am a fan of this new bold system, and I hope Creative Assembly will stick to it. What raised my concern, especially with the new Rome coming out, is how Creative Assembly handles DLC material. Now, in terms of the Singleplayer campaign I see no problems. When I bought Fall of the Samurai I got a free Clan Pack that added another faction to play as in the Main Campaign. I tried the different Clans and when I gave the DLC Clan a go I found it well balanced, and not an overwhelming force with some unfair advantage. While I miss the days of Rome: Total War, where you would unlock new Factions as you conquered them in today’s day and age it seems normal for a company to release countless DLCs, effectively making you choke out more cash in order to have a full game experience. This is not the problem as such, the problem is how Creative Assembly deals with Multiplayer.

The Sword and the Pistol: The Shogun 2 Guide to Technological Warfare

You might be thinking, “Where did the old Guide go?”. After countless hours of battling in Avatar Conquest I decided to revise the entire Guide, to include more Hints, Tips and useful knowledge, replacing, through trial and error, my previous conclusions from Shogun 2 with something fresh and much more complex. The aim of this Guide is to look at how you can defeat a Fall of the Samurai Army, in Avatar Conquest, with the use of Core Shogun 2 units (without any DLC or additional Expansion Units). While I am aware this is a difficult task it is by no means impossible. You simple need to consider your options, and then choose the one which is most likely to work. Let’s jump head-first into Shogun 2 Tradition vs Technology Warfare.
