Veni Vidi Vici,and Withdrawal
So my question is, if an enemy army engages me, and i have the option to back out and avoid the battle, is that considered losing the battle, or forfeiting my achievement ablility?

It reads "Complete an entire campaign, winning every battle except one, without auto-resolving."

And I don't think that would be considered auto resolving the battle, would it?

Any advice on this so I dont have to waste too much time would be awesome.

i dont think the withdraw option counts as its not a battle if you withdraw, im sure it only counts battles you choose to fight or if you press the autoresolve bt im not 100% sure

no, withdrawing doesnt count. only proper engagements of armies count as battles

I think the trick is to use agents for most of your operations, then come in with your armies and steamroll.

Based on the wording, I assume AR wins are still wins and retreats are not even battles in the first place.

I did, but it was on patch 1 and 2, where the AI was incredibly passive

Thanks for the thoughts. Yeah, I'm doing something a little crazy, tbh. I'm going for Veni, Vidi, Vici, which is zero losses. I'm also going for the never auto resolve battle achievement, and the finisher to be at war with every faction from the turn I met them, on. No peace ever.

I might be crazy, but as none of them have a difficulty requirement, I set it to Easy, and I don't feel bad about it.

My goal is having all of those achievements unlocked on the same day. We shall see how many I get. Next year.

Maybe.

Tell us how it goes >>

Veni, vidi, vici achievement requires all wins and no autoresolves, so its one and the same achievement.

I would advice to go for "this is total war" in another campaign. Simply because the biggest threat to your veni, vidi, vici achievement is the civil war. If you manage to make some big allies, you can finish your campaign before it fires

Right you are. This is Total War, and Veni, Vidi, Vici are the two achievements I hope to unlock at the same time. I'm also going to sack Rome for that achievement along the way. 7 cities strong as the Nervii. Getting to this last imperium at 7 cities was TOUGH. I only had 4 armies, since I was landlocked.
