    Well, here's my English Empire at turn 84 on H/H difficulty:



    I got rid of Ireland first, but Scotland was such a pain in the arse. It was the hardest war I ever played in a TW game, and arguably the most enjoyable. Then, I went on a few crusades to the east, didn't gain anything, so I decided to tackle the French. The war must have dragged on for over 40 turns, I only recently got rid of them. Then, I decided to blitzkrieg North Africa since the Pope gets overexcited whenever I touch any of his precious Catholics. I trapped all major Moorish armies in Spain by blockading their ports there and blocking the channel crossing between Spain and North Africa. Now, I've expanded to Egypt and will take all of Africa, but won't expand into Asia as my forces are spread too thin, and conditions are getting hectic on the HRE border, and I don't want to tackle these eastern giants. Right now, I'm fighting Aragon since the pope recently excommunicated them.

    How do you change your map to look like that?

    ah, I think they just take a SS then use something like ms paint then just cut it out and blow it up, I could be wrong though.

    Very nice job on your campaign Pharoah, I also had a very hard time with Scotland. You gave some good tips dealing with the Moors that I will try out.

    heroic victories (with small armies) usually do more for a general's stars. cavalry are great for this, especially in SS 5.1 because the enemy uses alot of infantry
    also night battles should be used wherever possible, generals get good night battle traits quite easily

    Are you talking autoresolve? That's pretty much a crapshoot on what you'll get from a fight. I was more along the line of fighting the battle yourself. Get your large army pressed up against the smaller one, then pound unit after unit from the back with your general's cavalry charge. He'll personally get tons of kills that way.

    I'd avoid conquering Italy, because harrassing catholic factions could inflict a crusade against you, which would be devastating with your position.

    Another reason to go in asia minor is that the turks are doing way too well, and are a big threat to your empire. Besides, religious wars are always fun to execute.

    I'd head across the Med, take a few African provinces, then turn back and take the Turks. If the war goes badly your fairly safe in Africa.

    The Cuman Lost 2 provinces. I took Tunis and Sardinia.
    Do anyone think the The moors will attack be cause I look like a attractive target.

    I allied with Hungary and they are at war with Venice. Should I partake?

    Thats my current English Empire. Most of my income was coming from Africa/Holy Lands but it was difficult to keep such a large Empire under control (only 25 turns in), so I decided to abandon Britain.

    I'm currently invading whats left of Byzantium (as you can tell) and plan to relocate my Capital to Constantinople once that campaign has been won. Currently my Capital is Alexandria.

    After that, I'll look at securing what is now Turkey.

    I'm allied to the Pope, Spain, Hungry, KoJ and Sicily at the moment.

    I'm also engaged in a bitter war with Egypt. They keep sending full stacks to attack Gaza every few turns.

    Overall though I'm fairly surprised so many nations are still around. The only ones in real danger currently are Ireland, Byzantium and Portugal. Oddly, France haven't done a thing since the game started. They didn't even take the rebel lands in the South.
