    Default Book/Unit Discussion

    Here you can discuss the books that allow you to use a variety of different Units...and talk about stuff like which ones are your favourites, which ones are your least favourite, and how you use each of them induvidually.

    Well for most of the story events I used the cavalry. I found them too convenient to get across the maps quickly and too deadly to cease units advancing and causing problems to me. It wasn't till mid-late game that I really did mix and tried out other units, like if I was playing around or trying scenarios out. Of course that led to getting all maxed and the Silver Spear, Bow and Sword along the way.

    Has to be the two-handed swords, two-handed maces (mainly for the ragdoll moves!). And my Magicians. And of course the Ninjas (well they are not really a book, but what a unit!)

    Well, I did say you could talk about the units in the books

    Also...damn, because your Ninjas have the type advantage over my riflemen...I think they're called Fusileers, or something like that, and yes, the explosives book is my favourite...too bad it takes so damn long to get -_-

    Ive started playing BS lately, so I started again(still mainly French side ) and after the Battle of Crecy, and a few battles afterwards, my highest level book is the Knives, at around 18 and my lowest is I think Horses on 11, so thats not all that bad.

    The Magicians are fun to use, but their severe lack of defence really annoys me, especially when most of the moves only have a certain range...also, its also those who have the type advantage over the rifles...I guess thats why I hate going up against Christine and Iamarl

    Archery is my favorite unite^^ I haven't finish the game yet, but I use only them. But it needs a little more strategy in my opinion

    Archers are an alright substitute untill you get to the rifles...who have a lot more power and attacking speed than archers...but I think less range.

    Hey Leady...while playing through it again lately...ive seen just why you like the Ninjas ^^ they really know how to attack really quickly...and I find that theyre really good at taking out most of the enemy units that you can find in the larger forts...so theyre quite helpful there

    I also found it funny how in just one little skirmish...my long spears went from level 10 to 21

    its just makes me laugh when i stand back from the battle and 'send in the ninjas' the way they speed in to the battle with that Ninja run.

    HAHAH ..thats the thing I love about BLADESTORM, the speed everything happens. When you get good at it you can dominate a map much quicker than something like DW Empires or DWG2.

    Its not the repetitive hack/slash, kill/repeat. BLADESTORM is like BANG BANG BANG - Base down onto the next. I think people dont realise just how arcady it gets later in game when you get used to it.

    Anyway:

    BLADESTORM :worships:
    Ogasawara-san :worships:
    Suzuki-san :worships:

    Lol...Im finding the game much more fun now that im using pretty much every book to my disposal, instead of spamming just one of them...like swords

    It takes real skill to take out a base really quickly, especially with a disadvantaged unit...like Knives and Rapiers, while theyre all at pretty much the same level

    Its quite disheartening to think that such a great game is pretty much ignored by much of the gaming world -_- but I guess the only way to bring its popularity up is by never shutting up about it :worships BS:
