Shogun 2 Heaven Clan: Cavalry Specialists



As proposed in the earlier thread, we've launched the official Shogun 2 Heaven Clan.

This will enable us to take part in the brand new Clan feature that Creative Assembly have added to the game. Not to mention it'll serve as a meeting place for Forum Parties, Casual Games and eventually the Shogun 2 Heaven Tournaments.

You can see the group page here. Join us!



The Shrine of Bishamonten



Here, in the shrine of the war-god Bishamonten we shall remember Clan campaigns of the past, notable performances of members and of course each Player of the Week is enshrined in each thread below.

- Week 1
- Week 2

Current player of the week:

I'm in too. Never been brilliantly good at MP battles, but I'm more than willing to give it a try.

Nobody knows exactly where the entity known as Stephen Hill came from. He was found fully formed at the height of a storm and is believed to have come to Earth from a distant world where human qualities of fashion and beauty did not exist, which explains a lot. Constructed mostly of hatred and contempt, wrapped up in a pathetic human shell, Stephen comes fully equipped with his Antarian death coat, his Pen of Rage +2, and a variety of useful headgear

His Scipii wishes to know which Clan Speciality we are going with so I can designate the S2TWH group as my clan and get fighting. Being the first person wanting to designate the group as the clan it keeps asking me to choose a clan specialty.

Lucky I got singleplayer to tide me over until we decide, or someone chooses for us.

Right guys we've got a pretty respectable number ready, so how about we choose our speciality!
"Now you’ve formed your warband, you’ll need to link your clan within Shogun 2. This you’ll have to wait till release to do, but what you can decide now is your Clan Specialization. This will be a choice made when you first register your clan and, depending on what you choose, it will give your clan mates a specialised Retainer, as well as access to some very powerful Veteran skills. You’ll have to choose between the sword, spear, bow or even cavalry, so make your selection carefully."
Please chime in now and be heard. Just to recap the choices are as follows;

  • Sword
  • Spear
  • Bow
  • Cavalry

    I'll tally up the votes as they come!

    For me it's between the sword and cavalry; so I'll apply a half-vote to each.

    When I first booted up the game, it was a tough choice between the Takeda and Date because of those specialties. I haven't joined the group, yet; and I don't really ever do the MP thing. Nevertheless, as long as it won't hurt the clan if I never play a MP battle, I'd like to join. The MP system in this game is more appealing than the previous titles, though. However, I think I'll need to buy a new PC before I can do MP.

    I cast my vote on Sword. As I understand the speciality reduces casualties to that unit type and that's most useful to sword units.

    Tally:
    Sword: 5
    Spear: 0
    Bow: 3,5
    Cavalry: 0,5

    Uh, so it looks like we're going as cavalry. I joined the clan 'officially' this morning and we're already set as that so I don't know what has happened there.

    No matter. You guys all need to log into the game, check into the multiplayer lobby and so long as you're in the Steam group you can declare the Shogun 2 Heaven clan as your own.

    Now... Who wants some inter-clan matches this weekend? Saturday would be a good day for some carnage!

    Sorry I didn't really go online yesterday. I went on and saw EOJ was online but he was in a battle.

    I just had my first online battle and I won! We had the exact same army except I had a unit of light cavalry instead of swordsmen (I'm sill not used to the names). But he went and sent two units to capture the buildings in the map so I rushed and killed him.

    I have won 2 battles, and lost 2 battles. But when I see my name on our clan page thingy, it says I haven't played at all.

    As for the battles - for them to count you need to use the match maker. Also there is some sort of bug that Gnarlyhotep pointed out in his thread so you should give that a quick look too!

    I have that trait too.

    I go into "avatar conquest", "conquest map" I send my army to a new province then press "Match made battle" So it chooses someone worthy to fight me. This should count or whatever shouldn't it? I get the extra units or whatever from capturing the regions.

    Oh, and how do I download the new patches? Is it on steam or are they like in older games where you just get them off the internet?

    The patches are on Steam, so downloaded automatically (unless you changed the update setting). Yes, Match-Made battles count towards the Avatar Conquest map and the Clan map. However, the servers or something seem to be having issues tracking stats, so some games (victories or defeats) are not being counted.
