    Hello and welcome to my fourteenth  guide. This is going to be a guide on how 
    to beat all of the Scenerio battles in the game. I decided to write this 
    guide for 2 reasons. 1. The total war series is my favorite strategy game of 
    all time. 2.there aren't many other places to find help for these battles and I
    know from personal experience that the scenerio battles can be hard at times.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \_____________________________________________________________________________/
    
    I highly suggest you read this if you are new to the game. 
    
    1. Use all of your units to your advantage. It doesn't matter if you only have 
    100 men at the end of the battle, the only thing that matters is that you win 
    the battle.
    
    2. Never leave Cavalry in combat for to long especially against spearmen. So 
    charge the flanks of the enemy soldiers then, if they don't mediately route 
    pull your horses out and then charge them again. 
    
    3. Archers can work as melee units if you are running low on infantry.
    
    4. Always keep your general out of danger. If your general dies you will 
    automatically lose the battle. 
    
    5. Cannons and catapults are your top priority. Whenever your enemy has these 
    units they will aim for your general generally 90% of the time.
    
    6. Even though at times the odds seem bad the game will usually give you some
    sort of tactical advantage so try to figure this out or continue to read this
    guide and I will tell you.
    
    7. Never charge cavalry in to spear men head on! Allways attack from
    spearmen from the flank. Even if you outnumber them 2 to 1 they will still 
    cause many casualties if you charge them while they are facing you.
    
    8. You can pause the game and still order your troops. This will let you make
    better decisions because you won't be under pressure.
    
    9. Do not chase routing units unless the battle is very close to being over
    because in a lot of these battles every single unit needs to be used to the 
    best of its ability for you to win.

    Before I start the guide there are a few things you should know.
    
    1. For the most part the computer is very predictable but the computer is not
    guaranteed to do what I say they will do so be prepared to think on your
    own.
    
    2. There is more then one way to beat any one of these battles so my way may 
    not be the easiest way of doing it. 
    
    3. If you have a alternate strategy  please don't hesitate to e-mail me at 
    ratlips24@aol.com. (Note: make sure to include medievil 2 total war in the 
    description.)

    ------------------------------Overview-----------------------------------------
    
    This is a large two versus two battle fought around the cramped edges of a 
    lake. Both sides of the lake are relatively flat with the exception of a 
    small slope on the right side. The armies are deployed on opposite sides of
    the map with one army on each opening of one of the paths on either side of 
    the lake. As there is very little room on either side of the lake cavalry is
    extremely useless and will ultimately get surrounded and you won't have enough
    room to build enough momentum for a charge. Flanking with infantry is also 
    impossible as the Native factions will always charge in large mobs of soldiers
    that leave no room on either side to move men around. In the end, the battle
    comes down to sheer numbers. Because of this there is very little strategy to
    win as the Native factions. 
    
    ------------------------------------Strategy-----------------------------------
     
    ---Mayans and Aztecs---
    
    Since the Mayans and Aztecs both have very similar army composition the 
    strategy for them is completely the same. The secret to winning this battle
    is taking advantage of your AI ally. When the battle starts move your army 
    down the path in front of your army. While your doing this make sure to move
    your general to the back of your army. If your allied army follows you down the
    path then continue moving down. If they don't follow you (witch is pretty rare)
    the move pack out of the path and follow them down there path. If your playing
    as the Aztecs then position half of your army on the slightly elevated hill on
    the left and position the rest of your army in a line on the normal path. Stop 
    your men half way down the side path and wait for the aproaching army. 
    
    Once they start sending up there skirmishers, its time to charge. Distribute
    your men across the enemy army and have your army fire flaming arows in
    the enemy mass. Hopefully ,about now, your allied army will join in with the
    charge with you.
    
    If you are only facing the Tlaxcalans or only facing the Spanish then you and
    your allied army will steam roll over them with less then 40% Casualties 
    facing the Natives and 30% Casualties facing the Spanish. After you defeat the
    first army rally the survivors of your army and form them in a line and make 
    sure to stop them from chasing enemy soldier off of the map. By now the second
    enemy army should be near and your surviving allied soldiers will be already
    charging them. If you have less then half of your men left then you should 
    just let the allied army weaken them then move in. If you have about 60-70% of 
    your army left (witch you should) then you can join in with your allies and 
    crush the second army.       
    
    ---Spain---
    
    This is a bit harder because the Spanish army is one fourth ranged units and it 
    has 3 units of cavalry witch are almost useless due to the lack space to 
    maneuver in. To add on this the Spanish infantry ,though higher quality, are
    completely outnumbered against the natives and are guaranteed to route very
    quickly just by the enemies sheer numbers. 
    
    In order to prevent this you will have to use your allied army to its fullest
    extent. Rather then going down the path directly in front of you, head to the
    path that your allied army is going down and have them lead the assault. Stay
    close to your allies but make sure that they take the blunt of the enemy 
    army. Make sure that your ranged units are fining and that you don't keep
    your allied cavalry in combat for to long as they will get cut down.
    
    Hopefully the enemy army has been defeated and you haven't lost to much of
    your infantry. Your allied army is probably pretty drained but there job is 
    not over yet. Have them lead the charge on the second army and have them do
    as much damage as possible to the second army before you move your men in 
    to finish them off. Remember that if a part of your line breaks that your
    missile infantry can fill them temporarily 
    
    ---Tlaxcalans--- 
    
    Basically use the exact same strategy as above but switch all of the roles so
    that the Spanish go first and you go second. This one is a bit easier since
    your troops won't immediately route like the Spanish troops.

    A team battle for 4 players. As a Spanish army makes haste to aid in the 
    defense of their settlement, a Mayan army lays in wait, ready to strike their 
    approaching foes. If the Spanish cannot overcome their ambushers quickly, 
    their village will be surely be lost.

    ------------------------------Overview-----------------------------------------
    
    This is a siege battle where the one Spanish army will try to hold the town 
    while they wait for more reinforcements to help them out. One Mayan army
    will focus on capturing the town while the other ambushes and destroys the 
    reinforcing army. The Mayans have the numerical advantage and the superior
    positioning but the Spanish have fearsome Cavalry that will bash threw the
    mayans if used correctly. 
    
    ------------------------------------Strategy-----------------------------------
    
    ---Mayans---
    (the ambushing army commanded by Buluk Kab that is posistioned ready to kill
    the spanish reinforcements)
    
    You will be controlling the 2 Armies that are positoned ready to destroy the
    spanish reinforcements. One army is positioned on a hill on the a path that the
    spanish reinforcements are coming from. The second army is positioned in a 
    forest by a hill in position to help in the assault on the town. The smaller
    army on the left will be referred to as the first army and the other larger
    army will be referred to as the second army.  
    
    When the battle starts move the first army up to the town ,but don't make them
    run just yet. Once the enemy cannons start shooting at you, charge. Target 
    the cannons with one of your units and fous the rest of your melee units on
    the infantry. Have your archers target the enemies ranged units. At this time
    your allied army should be attacking from the other entrance so all you should 
    have to do is distract the soldiers outside the town. 
    
    While your first army invades the city the spanish army should be approaching 
    your second army. 9/10 times the spanish army will bring up its ranged unit 
    first. once they do charge up your army and divide your men amounst there
    line. Since you should be fighting down hill you should have the advantage
    and they will route really quickly. By the time you route the reinforcements 
    the town will be really close to being taken if its not already. If your allies
    somehow fail to take the town then take your men and finish off the survivors.  
    
    ---Myans---
    (The other Mayan army that is in position to raid the town and has one small
    force to ambush the reinforcements.
    
    This strategy is ver similair to the first mayan army. Once the battle starts
    have your army on the beach to the right march towards the town. Do the smae
    with the army on the left. There is a good change the enemy army will lead 
    a charge with its cavalry towards your small force on the left. If they
    do you will take tons of loases no matter what you do. Once you can see that 
    the other army has started the charge charge with your smallwr army. Target
    the cannons and try to suround the melee infantry. They should route after
    some time. Once this happens your second army should be in range to cahrge the
    city. So do that and the enemy lines will brake in no time. 
    
    Ny now either you and your army should be in the process of capturing the town.
    now you need to do is move all of your men into the city and try to fight
    the spanish reinforcements untill the timer runs out. 
    
    ---Spain---
    (reinforcements)
    
    This one is actually really easy to do, assuming your allied army can hold
    the town for you. Since the AI isn't super inelegant they will not play out
    the battle it is supposed to be played. At the begging of the battle all 4
    groups of Mayans will go straight for the town and will ignore you untill
    you go after them. 
    
    Once the battle begins move your army slowly down the hill to the town. Once
    your cannons come into ranges with some of the soldiers below leave them on 
    the hill and have them give you support. Don't worry because the enemy soldiers
    will not touch your cannons. Once you can see the enemy soldiers start running 
    at the allied town it will be time for you to attack. Move all of your cavaly 
    and your general toy the front fo the clollom and charge down the hill towards
    the enemy ary. Target the archers at the end of the collom and then have your
    infantry go after the flanks of the enemy infantry that is still outisde of the
    town. If the archers don't instantly route, then pull your cavalry out about
    15 meters and then charge again untill they route. After they route go for the
    flanks of soldier outside of the town but DO NOT move your men into the town 
    or else they will get slaughtered. 
    
    One the soldiers outside have routed move your infantry inside the town and
    have them flank the soldiers there, but agian DO NOT move you cavalry inside
    the town, Just have them sit outside by the other entrance to the city. Mop up 
    any archers that are still outside but keep them close to the town. 
    After another few minutes another attack by the second mayan army will start
    there final assault on the city. Wait for about half of them to get inside the
    city and then charge with the last of your cavalry into there flanks. 
    Quickly pull them out before they get surrounded and then perform another 
    charge. If you run low on cavalry then have all of your ranged units enter 
    into melee combat with the soldier of the second army ouside of the city and 
    have them hold the enemy soldiers in place while your men flank them. Continue 
    doning this untill the enemy force has been destroyed or all your cavalry is 
    killed.
    
    Now just wait for your flanking soldiers to eliminate the enemy force and the
    long battle will finallt end.        
    
    
    ---Spain---
    (the army defending the town in the beginning)
    
    I have tryed many times to beat this battle but it is simpily to difficult for 
    me. No matter what I do the allied reinforcements never help me and they just
    sit there as the town gets taken.
    
    If you know how to beat this battle as the spanish army that defends the town
    cpuld you please email me. Thankyou.

    ---Both Novgorod armies and Dennark and the Teutonic Order---
    
    The basic strategies for all 3 of these armies are the same. At the beginning
    of the battle form all of your infantry in a line in front of your cavalry.
    they will be in charge of sponging the enemy cavalry charge. March your army
    up to the top of the hill and wait for your allies to join up with you. Once 
    there men are lined up with you, charge your cavalry down the hill. Try to 
    swarm the enemy infantry with your infantry and keep your cavalry together.
    Do not let any of your cavlry go to far away from the main army. Keep the 
    momentum going and the enemy army will route in no time at all.

    ------------------------------Overview-----------------------------------------
    
    This is yet another 2 v 2 siege battle. Like the last battle the town has 
    no walls. Unlike the last battle both of the 2 armies protecting the town
    are both positioned in the town and the enemies armies are coming from opposite
    corners of the map. The Teutonic orders soldiers have superior infantry
    but poland and Lithuania have the superior numbers and have the defensive 
    position.
    
    ---Poland and Lithuania---
    
    Have your infantry form a lin outside the streets leading into the town. Line
    up your ranged infantry in the back and position your cavalry to the right 
    of your army. Also position 2 units of any infantry inside the town square. 
    If you have horse archers then send them to harass the enemy pikemen. Wait for
    the enemy army to approach and have your archers rain death on them. Engage 
    them with your infantry and use your superior numbers to your advantage. The
    enemy army will sometimes try to sneak past you into the square with there 
    cavalry. If they do engage them with your cavalry and some of your spearmen.
    
    Your allies from the other side of town will probably try to help you so you
    should have no trouble fighting them off. Once there defeated send some of 
    your infantry inside the town to support the square and then send the rest of 
    your men around the city to support your allies. Since your allies are 
    complete morons they will not be able to prevent the enemy army from 
    reaching the inside of the town. So with the cavalry you sent around the
    city have them flank the enemy soldiers. This shouldn't be to hard since
    your allies should have weakened them. Kill off the last of the archers 
    outside to win the battle. 
    
    ---The Teutonic Order---
    
    The Teutonic Order is a bit harder to play as since you have to kill EVERY 
    single one of the enemy soldiers and they will always come back from routing.
    But it isn't impossible.
    
    Once the battle starts you will have to reform your army. Line your 2 pikemen
    units in a long line in the front. The second line should consist of your
    swordsmen and spearmen. The third line is the ranged units and on one side 
    of your army should be all of your cavalry. As you march charge towards the 
    town the defenders will sally forth you meat you half way. Try to position
    your line next to some of the farm buildings so that the enemy soldiers 
    won't be able to surround you. When the enemy army gets near active spear wall
    formation and let them come to you. Once there all engage have your cavalry 
    swing around them and flank. The light armored infantry will route quickly.
    Make sure your men don't go to far away as the enemies allies will give them
    some support. Keep your men together and make sure the flanks are secure.
    
    After the first army and reinforcements have been destroyed you next job
    will be to take the town. Rest up your men and let your allies weaken the 
    defenders. Once your units are all fresh, aproach the entrances to the town
    from all sides and try to surround the men in the square.    
    
    Your allies should have done enough damage for you to finish them off.

    ------------------------------Overview-----------------------------------------
    
    Basic 1 v 1 battle where the Byzantine empire has has the superior infantry
    bu the Turks have superior ranged units and cavalry. 
    
    ------------------------------Strategy-----------------------------------------
    
    ---Byzantine Empire---
    
    There strategy is simple enough it just takes a while becuase you have to
    hunt down large amounts of missile untis. Once the battle begins set the 
    unit formation on your horse archers to loose and have them start showering
    the soldiers across the lake. Form your soldiers into one line with no gaps
    and have the infantry on the hill on the left flank return to your line. 
    The enemy will pretty much always start off with a mass cavalry charge on 
    your archers. Have your cavalry and your general execute a counter charge.
    Once the enemy cavalry routes have your cavalry charge the infantry but make
    sure to pull them out before they are surrounded. Continue doing this until
    the enemy infantry reaches your line. 
    
    Your infantry is far superior so they should route quickly. Now quickly turn
    your line so that they will face the hill to the left. From there finish off
    the crossbowmen and the spearmen sent to flank you. Charge them with the 
    remainder of your cavalry. Now its just a matter of hunting down the dang 
    horse archers. 
    
    ---The Turks---
    
    At the beginning of the battle pull the spearmen down from the hill to the 
    right of your army and have them join up with your line. From there you 
    pretty much do the same strategy as you did as the Byzantines in the 
    paragraph above. Just this time make sure to support you cavalry with your
    spearmen because your cavalry is a bit weaker at charging. Also prioritize 
    the greek flamethrowers because they can inflict massive casualties. Other 
    then that the Byzantines will take the same actions the Turks did when
    you faced them. 
    
    Note: you don't have to turn your army like you did as the Byzantines.

    -------------------------------Overview----------------------------------------
    
    This is another 2 v 2 battle. In this battle The Principality of Antioch and
    Jerusalem are in a heavily fortified position guarded by trenches filled with
    water that are impossible to pass. Inbetween the trenches are hills of dirt 
    that have artillery and missile units that have a major advantage against 
    the soldiers below. The Turks and Egyptians have very poor infantry but there
    cavalry is absolutely deviating on enemy swordsmen.
    
    ---Egypt---
    
    Once the battle starts take 3 forth of your infantry and have them engage the
    infantry down the middle passage between the 2 mounds. Have all of your cavalry
    charge the 2 units of swordsmen on the far right passage. 
    
    Your infantry in the middle should get some help from your allies and you
    should be making some progress on the enemy lines but don't expect your
    guys to make there way threw in a few minutes. Your cavalry that you sent out
    earlier should break threw the swordsmen. Send the last of your infantry that
    isn't engaged down the path on the right side with your cavalry. Have the
    infantry assault the catapults and crossbowmen and have your cavalry 
    flank the enemy soldiers in the middle between the dirt mounds. 
    
    With this final charge the rest of the men will route and then all you will
    have to do is hunt down any survivors.
    
    ---The Turks---
    
    Basically do the same exact thing as Egypt but replace anytime I said "right"
    with left and its basically the same thing. So for example go instead of 
    going down the far right side go down the far left side.
    
    ---Kingdom of Jerusalem and Principality Of Antioch---
    
    This is just as easy as the Turks. Before you start pause the game so you can
    make preparations. Make a line with your spearmen in the middle path and 
    move your cavalry on the right or left path depending on witch side your on.
    Target some infantry with your catapults and unpause the game. While your
    spearmen hold you the enemy line move your swordsmen and cavalry along the 
    right or left side and move to flank the enemy lines. 
    
    The enemy cavalry will try to counter you ,so Charge them with your cavalry and
    swarm them with your swordsmen. Once you finish off the cavalry move
    your infantry and cavalry and flank the soldiers currently engaged in the 
    middle path. The enemy infantry will quickly route and then you just need to
    hunt down the horse archers and you will win the battle.

    -------------------------------Overview----------------------------------------
    
    This 1 v 1 battle where the Welsh army commands the high ground and must
    fend off the Norwegian attacks below. The Welsh have a advantage since they
    are fighting down hill but they are outnumbered by the invading army.
    
    ------------------------------Strategy-----------------------------------------
    
    ---Norway---
    
    This one is actually the easiest side to play as. This is do to the fact that
    the enemy army will usually abonden its superior position and move back to
    flat ground to meat you on fair grounds. The high ground is there only 
    advantage and when they give it up, they give up there chance of winning.
    
    So make your way up the hill and onto the flat lands on top. Move 3 units
    of cavalry on each side of your army. Now its just another battle. Engage
    the enemy infantry with your and then flank them with your cavalry. Then
    its a matter of superior numbers and stronger cavalry against fewer numbers
    and unprepared cavalry. You should win this with no problem.
    
    ---Wales---
    
    In order to win as the Welsh you must utilize the high ground you are given.
    Rather then waiting on the top of the hill for the enemy you should meat 
    them on the hill. Form your infantry in a line and meat the enemy army down
    the hill. Keep half of your cavalry on each side of your infantry. Once 
    your archers are in range, charge your infantry. On one side have your cavalry
    flank the infantry and have the other side counter the enemy cavalry. There
    is a very high chance that your infantry will route after a few minutes but
    as long as they have take out at least 75% of the enemy army and you have most
    of your cavalry left you should still be able to capture victory.
    
    But like always Never keep your men in combat for to long. ALways pull them
    out and then charge. Overall this is a hard battle do to your horrible infantry
    but you should be able to secure victory as long as you utilize the high
    ground.

    -----------------------------Overview------------------------------------------
    
    This is a interesting 1 v 1 battle where the Scottish army has set up a 
    ambush while the English army trys to make its way threw the mountain path.
    The Scottish army has archers and infantry on both sides of the path. The 
    English army is sending half of his army down the middle and the other half
    up the right mountain path. 
    
    -----------------------------Strategy------------------------------------------
    NOTE: for future reference, The right path will always be the one where
    the English army sends its knights and infantry. The left path is always
    the side that the English army sends it single unit of archers on. 
    
    ---Scotland---
    
    Start off by ordering one unit of Highland nobles on the left path to attack 
    the one unit of English archers by your archers. Now line up the rest of
    your Highland Nobles in a line on the slope leading to your archers. Don't
    directly put them on flat ground or else they will get destroyed put them
    on a angled slope. As your archers rain death on the cavalry they will charge
    at your Nobles. If you put them on a slope like you to then the cavalry 
    will get cut down by your nobles. 
    
    After the cavalry has been eliminated move your Nobles onto the mountain path
    and have them engage the enemy Billmen. Don't worry about it if some units of 
    cavalry gets past your infantry because your main army at the end of the path
    will destroy them. 
    
    Now to the right path where the bulk of the enemy infantry went up. Your
    archers should have been shooting at them for a long time now and they
    shouldn't be able to chase them down without any cavalry. Once they reach 
    your main army they should be heavily depleted and you should be able
    to mow them down.    
    
    ---England---
    
    This one is just as easy. Since the enemy AI is really stupid they will 
    abandon there superior position and will just unite in one army and encounter 
    you that way. Before starting the battle stay in the deployment phase for
    a few seconds. Move 3 units of Demi Lancers onto the left path behind your
    one unit of archers. Then move the archers with your main army. Also take
    ALL of your army (except your cavalry) and put them on the right path with
    the Bulk of your infantry. Start the battle.
    
    When the battle starts take your cavalry you put on the path and mow down
    the Scottish archers. They should offer no resistance. Once there finished
    you will notice that the Scottish nobles are completely ignoring you and
    just heading for the main army. So charge into them while there backs
    are turned and then pull them out when they turn around to attack you.
    Once the Main enemy army arrives it will be time to split. 
    
    Send them up the right path with the rest of your army. Now back to your main
    force. Position them on the right path at the top of the slope. Make sure 
    they are facing at a angle and there is no room to flank you. Also take your
    ranged infantry and position them along the edge of the path so there in 
    range to rain death on the enemy army below. Now its just a matter of cutting
    down the enemy soldiers when they come at you. They will be out of formation
    so it will be a piece of cake.

    -------------------------------Overview----------------------------------------
    
    Just a basic 2 v 2 battle where one team starts at a top of a hill with the
    highground. 
    
    --------------------------------Strategy--------------------------------------
    
    There is very little strategy involved in this battle. Move up your infantry
    together in one line with your ally and then when your infantry is fighting
    swing around your cavalry and hit the archers and the infantry at the flanks.
    Simple as that.
