ABOUT NTW3 Historical Battles

NTW3 Historical Battles Group

This group will give news, update and organize events about historical scenarios, included in NTW3, developed by Lord Desaix

I've created this new group because old one seems impossible to edit since Druid apparently disapperead. The aim of this group is to find opponents for playing HB and to advertise new scenario.

This group does not look for quantity but quality since I believe that playing an HB (especially the larger ones) is not for everyone and above all a HB cannot be played with a casual approach like if it was a lobby game.

The more I develope new battles the more I try to change stats and dynamics towards a realistic style of game. When playing a HB history must be more important than victory, at least in my opinion. This doesn't mean I like to loose :)

I usually play HB at 2vs2 scale because I like to manage lots of units, because lag is acceptable with 4 players and because... I cannot find lot of trusted people with my very same attitude. Hence the creation of this group.

HBs must be played with some house rules to get the most benefit from them. I don't pretend all players to oby these rules but when enough got used to them, the enjoyment and the historical experience is hugely improved.

These are:

1) LCS : this means you can form square only starting from a NOT MOVING (one or two men don't count of course) COLUMN which must be intended as a squared shape formation (usually = or > 8 ranks for a full strenght unit)
The reason is that with a stupid last instant square, player must be see square as a defensive formation, not as a last resort exploit to beat cavalry. According to this cavalry speed in HB is slower than classic NTW3 and cavalry run and charge has a major debuff. Learning to move infantry in column, and only to deploy in line when safe from cavalry treat, learning to resist the temptation to form illegal square, does require some discipline indeed, that's why I speak of "trusted people".

2) NO EMBEDDED ART: this means artillery (but 3lber regimental guns) should be deployed in the space between infantry units, behind or in front of them but with limber and train which does not touch infantry (of course infantry can move through it to fend charge or to attack).

NTW3 Ver. 7.0 released with HB of Elchingen and La Rothiére
