They never did that for me, when I raided their castle they had (literally) 4 units in there, equalling to around 500 men. I had almost 1300 men :3

Date is epic. Start at the top of the island and takeout everyone til you hit the bottom. Also very good swords men 2 of mine can take out a 4 to 5 squads of pikes.

Ah, but now you get better big 2 handed swords and a rather awsome colour scheme and symbol as well as one of the strongest starting points.

Game is not that great, I prefer Medieval II over this. With all the charging for the DLC contents, might as well just download mods for this game off of moddb. "Charging For DLC" = Epic Fail.

Also, I feel as if Shogun II developers are trying to torture me with the game's start-up logo wait time. I'm losing patience with this game, why does it take Medieval II seconds to load and an eternity for Shogun II.
