I was in a big hurry,but at least you had that sweet additional firepower - and it was basically free.

 

I was also impressed by how well did my infantry perform,they were half upgraded but 50 of them were already mowing down large squads of enemy dragoons and pikes like mad - I think it's because I took the rate of fire upgrade in the academy a bit earlier that I usually do. The enemy howitzers were a huge pain in the ass later on,tough,but the 160 Hetmans I had produced before I left were able to swoop in a enemy town (full with towers and everything) and burn more that half of it,so I guess that was a nice payback to them from me. :)

 

Btw,here is a little tip for Parzi and BoBo - when you Develop Geology in the academy (500 gold,reveals all potential places for mines on the mini map),you can guess where the enemy is going to come from - just look for clusters of mines on the mini map and there is quite a big chance that you will be able to be better prepared for a enemy assault.

And please,try playing with some other factions! You 2 seem locked on to Bavaria/Saxony and Hungary. Try out some of the other ones,and find the one that suits you the best,because I already found mine,and it is so much more enjoyable now

I was surprised as well by the serdjuks; but those dragoons were probably mercs, not native ones. Merc dragoons have 100 HP and no armor so they're not very tough. Also, you probably know there are two rate of fire upgrades:

 

Design Wheel Gunlock
Hand guns' rate of fire +35% 350G 2,000I

 

Design Paper Cartridge and Iron Ramrod
Hand guns' rate of fire +35% 5,501G 21,200C

 

And running with cavalry through an enemy town and setting it on fire is the best part of the game, IMO :D It doesn't work when the enemy has upgraded towers - which is what one of the AI's did today lol. So I had to patiently take each one down with mortars.

 

Re Geology, that 500 gold can be put to better use in the early game; better to put 1 soldier to guard each capturable building, so if an attack comes there is time for your troops to react before half of your city is captured and burning. I research it later, when I can afford to recruit 15-20 merc cossacks, and use them to destroy remote mines.

Yes, we play quite often, but not every Sunday.

 

Generally, we try to be on GameRanger at 15:00 GMT - and if it's 3 of us, or more, we play. You can post your GR id, so we can add you.

 

You're welcome to join us :)

We need to clarify that 15:00 GMT is not the time in London (that's BST, which is GMT+1; thanks @SESELJ for pointing that out :) )

 

Usually we played at 15:00 BST, not GMT; so I suggest correcting that and using 15:00 GMT, not BST.

 

To make sure, check here for GMT time ---> http://time.is/GMT

Thank you, Jesus ! I'm so happy about this :D

 

Here's a link to the press release: http://www.polygon.c...ate-gsc-stalker

And official site: http://www.cossacks3.com/

 

The best part is they promised to stay true to the original, Cossacks 1 gamplay and mainly update the graphics. I really hope they won't dumb it down or impose limits on the number of troops. Also:
 

Most importantly, full mod support will be baked in at launch. Grigorovich says the plan is to distribute Cossacks 3 with an editor, one that includes the same in-house tools the team used to build the game. They’ll be powerful enough, he said, to practically rebuild the game from scratch.

 

"We will give modders lots of simple mechanisms to tweak the game, add new content, redesign interface, AI, change balance and gameplay or even make a completely new game with goblins and orcs.

 

"We will support popular mods, as well as give them official status and provide mod makers with help, making their work better and smoother."

 

With that kind of modding support, it could live forever. In addition, it will be available on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Well although we don't have the draft anymore here, I know from what my father used to tell that practice of rifle use was most of the time 'shoot once, then clean for three hours' - so that'll be that.

So, Cossacks 3 was released ! It was quite a disastrous, but after a couple of patches it's OK. I think it looks gorgeous (not on my laptop though, I have to play with low graphics) and it feels like the good old Cossacks. And the multiplayer actually works.

 

It's quite cheap, 15 pounds on Steam, so maybe we can play again every other Sunday ! Give me a shout if anyone is interested.
