It was the siege of Kyoto. I was Hattori. Its was Night... there was a rain storm, flashing lightning.. 2 units of kisho ninja scaling walls and opening gates, other gates getting blasted into flames. 2 full stacks or samurai and Ashigaru locked in a blood bath on the main terrace.
did I mention it was a night battle? with rainstorm? and the slight orangey glow of fire and lights.... epic...
Fort suck, but once you get to the 3rd stage or development.. sieges are awesome.
btw Hattori lost (and died), the Ashikaga Shogunate lives another season.
I like those moments, when you forget there are still alot of "issues" to be patched and fixed and can enjoy something wonderful in the game.
Empire and napoleon never really had those moments. I do think this game does however.
