    I just played a 16 hours TAC game, and won an independence victory as Martim of the Portuguese. I played on the Conquistador level, and was surprised by how easy I found the game to be. I'll give you the details of the game, and you tell me.

    Martim (Portugese)
    TAC South America
    Conquistador
    Normal Speed

    I settled on the east coast of modern day Brazil, and eventually expanded to the other edge of the continent, maintained only two ports. Cortes of Spain conquered the entire southern part of the continent. Louis of France, Peter of the Netherlands, and Penn of England shared the entire north part of the continent. Near the end of the game, I invaded and razed every village belonging to the other nations. When I declared independence I shared the continent with Nunki of the Shuar alone. I had 20 Ships of the Line, 3 Frigates, 4 Carracks, and 2 Privateers. The King of Portugal had only 18 Man o Wars. I sunk all 18 of his Man o Wars, and this is how I achieved victory. Only about 10% of his ground forces actually landed on my shore.

    So my question to you is, Is conquistador this easy for everyone?

    Don't worry. :)

    War of Independence will become more challenging. :thumbsup:

    TAC has reworked it for the upcoming release and Religion and Revolution will also rebuild War of Independence.

    Hi Sanotra,

    I have played TAC 2.02d with that map, too. My experience is another one. At first the Netherlands attacked me and then the Tupi. Each of these enemies destroyed one of my cities. Here at our German forum you will find a detailed report with some pictures.

    We are working to change the rules of the independent war. At TAC 2.02d it is too simple to defeat the royal corps by destroying the ships. Our next (and final) version TAC 2.03 will have a new concept. ;)

    I read your posting using Google Translate. I have also found that landing on the northeast coast is more difficult to play. What difficulty level were you playing? It says "Scout" in translate, but we don't have that level in English.

    Oh right on. Yeah I noticed you were kicking butt with your expansion speed. Looked like a fun game.
