Tactics will vary depending on your army composition, and that of the enemy. I'll mostly be talking about PvE, as that is my strong point, having played only a few field battles in the multiplayer portion of the game. IIRC, in PvP you only get 40% of the attacker's army size for balance purposes: It is obviously very advantageous to defend. Luckily, the AI ...

Asked 2 weeks ago and if no-one has further information will accept this as the answer: From browsing forums it seem there is a hard-limit of 5 agents of any type, regardless of how many chains you have. You can never have more than 5 Metsuke, 5 Ninjas, 5 Monks, etc. ...

Most of the various phrases don't seem to have any effect on gameplay. The exception being Heroic Victory which gives your general fifteen experience points instead of the usual ten points. For the most part, they seem to just be aesthetic though. Heroic Victory: Be outnumbered, but win without many losses. Gives four extra experience points to your ...

Kisho Ninjas stealth, bombs, and (relatively) high strength can make them good distractions with their small sizes. Kisho Ninjas are best used to disrupt enemy flanks, assassinate your enemy's generals, remove ranged archers or other ranged forces, or sneak into castles. Option A: You can hide them, use your main force to attack, and then use them to throw ...

When you open a trade agreement with a clan trade will automatically commence. There are two ways to trade with a clan, by roads if there are roads connecting two of your cities and by ship. If you and your trade partner have open port space then trade will commence. You can see your trade routes by dotted lines on your map that will leade from your port to ...

When you achieve enough fame, the shogun considers you a threat and orders all other clans to declare war. This includes allies who you may have had since the start of the game. The mechanism by which this work is that all your relationships are set at -40 and continue to decrease as turns pass. Now, any new vassels you create will not be affected by this ...

You can place up to 10 ships in 1 fleet You can put 1 fleet into a trading port For each trading ship (war ships have no effect here) in a fleet occupying a trading port, you get a certain amount of money each turn. The amount you get is calculated every turn, so if you remove a trading ship from that fleet, you will earn less money next turn from that ...

Rank and file refer to the depth and length of a formation. Deeper formations have more staying power - for example, a unit of cavalry might easily charge and emerge on the other side of a line three men deep, while a square formation will leave them stuck in the middle, exposed to a lot of danger. In general, shallow formations are also much more ...

As far as I know, the honor of a Daimyo is his own. When that Daimyo dies, and is replaced the things that he has done won't so much effect the new one.

The advantage is actually not that great. If you play a lot you do get more retainers and more experience for your general but it's overall strategy and tactics that will win you the game. My general currently has 8 stars and I remember when I started off I beat a 7 star general without using any veteran units or retainers. As to how the players are ...

here are all the quotes in .txt format, if anyone is interested.

Each general can only inspire one unit at a time, since the duration of the ability is much shorter than the cooldown. The AI however tends to bring several generals in a single fight, which is probably why you encounter armies with more than one inspired unit at once. The only way I'm aware of to inspire more than a single unit is to bring more generals ...

After some more testing, it seems that the AI lands and attacks in the same turn under one condition - that the castle is garrisoned with units (other than the automatic units spawned by the castle). On disembarking, the player is given a chance to intercept and then the AI attacks the castle in the same turn. I haven't had the opportunity to test this ...

It is bit different: As attacker, you cannot sally (because sally is defender trying to break siege). But that is only words. As attacker, you can only try to mount final assault (and if you fail, you end siege) On the other hand, if defender sally and don't win, siege continues (but he does not replenish losses in his normal nor garrison units). I don't ...

No there are no other ways of becoming shogun, and there is only one way of winning a scenario. Different victory conditions that you can chose of are present in Rome 2.

You can try either of the following methods: Use Cursor Lock to confine the mouse cursor to a selected area on the screen. Press Win + P and choose Projector/Computer only, depending on whether your're playing on your secondary or main screen respectively. This will allow you to quickly switch between single or multiple monitors without unplugging the ...

A retainer is basically a member of your government/organizational structure. They're not exactly modeled in the game but they're local officials keeping things running smoothly for you on a low level. In this case if you have this vassal killed there is a chance at an event occurring a few turns later where his son leads a rebellion against you in the ...

This turned out to be a problem with my motherboard's northbound chip set between the CPU and Memory. A replacement of it along with a newer AMD Quad Core processor resolved my issue. I have used the same Memory and GPU.

Unfortunately, match-making only works for Avatar conquest mode. You can still got into battle-list and join or create so called "classical" battles, but majority of players stick to Avatar mode.

I found out that my motherboard was of a type that wouldn't run shogun without an update to the bios. after I updated the bios the game worked perfectly

You better don't. The game is VAC secured, any change of those files might lead to a VAC ban. I doub't that you will be, but imho it is not worth the risk.

Here is what I have discovered about sieges and how to take a castle successfully. I place a high priority in S2 on understanding the exact weaknesses and strengths of each unit type and applying them accordingly. Unlike another poster here, I like using archers in sieges as you need a way of taking the fight to the enemy without getting your troops ...

Actually, you can use the arrows provided on the bottom left side to move your custom formation forward, backward, and what not. To go forward, keep button pressed, it will highlight how far they will move, and release mouse button. Then the army will move accordingly. I will try to find a screen shot and post it if I can.

You can't create a custom formation. The next best solution is either: learn and use the provided formations, and/or divide a large formation into groupings and manually move each division to hold place in the formation

Its because you are only being shown offensive retainers (retainers that affect your units). Defensive retainers are not shown to the enemy (though I believe there is a retainer that reveals your opponents defensive retainers). There is no penalty to taking max retainers. In fact, there is a penalty for NOT taking the maximum, because your general becomes ...
