Thread: The Mongol Invasion (Shogun Total War)

    Default The Mongol Invasion (Shogun Total War)

    Hi everyone. I'm Napoleon Complex, and I've decided to have a go at recording a campaign for Mongol Invasion. I thought that such an old campaign might be of some interest here.



    I cannot guarantee that I will succeed; Mongol Invasion is pretty difficult on Expert, and I'm not sure that I can keep enough momentum going forward to actually complete the conquest. But I promise to keep going until victory, defeat, or at least until things are utterly hopeless.

    Oh man, a Mongol Invasion Let's play. In 2020. That's awesome!
    Kyushu was a nice, classic start. Let's see what awaits you in Honshu.

    Cool idea for an AAR! It looks like the high quality of your troops and your smart tactics work well, despite the challenges in the campaign. You anticipated my reaction to the bridge battle, I see what you mean about the usefulness of your Korean Skirmishers.

    Part 2. Breakthrough (?)

    Good to hear you enjoyed the video. Resistance is definitely starting to stiffen. I won't say any more lest I spoil the video.

    They're critical. The Korean skirmishers are what allow me to break Japanese morale before they can wear down my low numbers of cavalry. Any losses will be felt keenly...

    Haha, oh man, you are master of micromanaging. Attacking these massive armies in Shikoku with your few forces? That's crazy. Loved it. I usually just block them and go on to conquer elsewhere.
    Great to see you recovered quite well, and eager to see you stomping Kyoto and the rest of central Japan. Here's a well deserved +rep.

    As you said, invading Japan is difficult - you need to keep the pressure on the Japanese factions to prevent them from gathering their forces to counter-attack, but fast expansion means public order problems. Great update!

    Shogun TW. Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Takes me way back to when I was but a young boy. Never really understood how it worked till I was a little older. Great memories. Looks like you know your way around the game.

    Nevermind. Spent an entire day uploading this video only for it to turn out Loilo screwed up the audio. I just lost an hour of footage and I'll have to rerun this part of the campaign again. >(

    I'm sorry for the delay folks.

    No need to be sorry. It seems the Mongol Invasion campaign is cursed.
    I played Mongol Invasion twice. Lost my savegames the first time, and had the wrong resulotion the second time. Perhaps the game wants us to try the Japs.

    Oh no, how frustrating! I hope you'll be back on track soon.

    Well, that happened. This isn't a real update, just a bit of fun that happened while I was testing out the recording software. I figured you guys would approve.

    For the record, that is 173 Mongols vs 1280 samurai, and I wasn't even trying as it was a recording test.

    Wow, it looks like your Mongols are even more badass than I thought!
