How are people doing with the event editor?

I haven't even messed with the event editor. There have been some interesting player-created events released, but they usually only have a minor impact.

If you can surrender to Yuan Shao and secure him a decent chunk of the central plains, the game can still be turned around. It just won't be easy is all. But the northeast and central plains are the two best areas to hold; one region can mean an easy game, both can mean guaranteed victory.

The only downside to joining hands with Shao is that you have to deal with the dummy AI decisions.


It was just too far gone; I did the surrender strategy, and Yuan Shao gave Yuan Shu control of the north; he kept control of the east coast and the southeast that had belonged to Yuan Shu. But the best I could do was to defend cities like Henei and Shangdang from huge incursions from Dong Zhuo (who became Emperor of Song). I could attack Chenliu with my entire army (~120,000), but he could defend it with 200 or 300k troops and *still* attack Shangdong or Henei with another 150,000 - meanwhile, he's attacking Jianye and Shouchun with another 200,000. So then I lose out at Chenliu (or, likely, at Guandu or Baima or something), and have to scramble to save either Henei or Shangdong but not both. And his armies are full of Xiliang cavalry and Elephants, so whereas I'd like to meet him mid-battlefield and use some cleverness, I have to instead make sure that he doesn't just stomp in with Ma Chao's elephants and take out my home base in a flash.

So it was hopeless. Dong Zhuo had far more troops, all the best generals, and a huge interior, whereas the Yuan territory was half border with only the northern interior. Since Dong Zhuo was taking his freaking time (just get it over with, jeez), I set this game aside and tried something else for a while...
