Hey to everyone reading this. I was just trawling thought the forums when i noticed lots of ppl r either complaining or thanking their lucky stars that there aren't any naval invasions in Empire. Well I beg to differ I have a screen shot of one just such thing and if anyone will help me out I'll edit this and put it up quicksmart.

Captain: Sally up the main mast and tell me what you see
Jenkins: But sir...........Its a rowboat.
Captain: Well um, err, yes I knew that.

It isn't that they don't happen, it's just that they rarely do. Very rarely from what it seems.

Life was much easier before I developed a sense of ethics.

Ah ok then. Well at least they weren't invading me. Btw how do you post pictures up here. I have a mind to start a topic on funniest ETW moments and have got a few to share.

If you want to post screenshots, you'll need to do a few things.

1. Upload them to a free image-hosting website, such as Imageshack or Photobucket.

2. Once you've done that, you just copy and paste the image url into your post. The image websites automatically include the tags for you, i.e.
[img]Picture url here[/img]
This thread here tells you everything you'll need to know.

If you're starting a topic on general ETW moments etc, the Campaign and Discussion Forum is the best place for it. That's not to say that you can't post screenshots demonstrating events relevant to the other forums. You could post the naval invasion one here, for example.

Good luck

I have seen one naval invasion, in the latest patch. the British send an army to Tripoli and took it, but they didn't advance any further against the Barbary state and quiute many turns have passed.

I remember in my toiling about as the Ottomans to take Austria that for some unknown reason, Madrid and Paris seemed to be flying Union flags around turn 45. Odd...

I have to deal with an invasion of the British in Hamburg playing with the French occupying the Netherlands.

It is in my recent campaign, it happened yesterday thus with latest patches 1.3.1.x.

Campaign on hardest/battles on normal.

In my current GB campaign it was the French who sent an armada to take Tripoli...and also failed to exploit or expand the conquest.

My mind is like a steel sieve.

In my Maratha campaign with the latest patch the French took Tripoli and then expanded to wipe out all of the Barbary States. Oddly enough the Spanish haven't take Gibraltar, so Morroco might end up in French hands too.
