There's a mount and blade mod that does 1812 pretty well for NW, my only problem is that we don't even have Russia or Austria yet.

US should be one of the last factions to be introduced, if introduced at all. It had little significance when it comes to battles... I know of only 1 battalion that was based in USA, that was the 1st Bat of the 44th.

I highly doubt they'll add the US. It wasn't in the Napoleonic Time Period really.

They won't because it's not even on the poll lol.

They should add Portugal and Denmark to the next one though

It was though, in 1798-1800 the US was in a war with France called the Quasi war which was mostly a naval engagement. Skirmishes at sea continued until the War of 1812, where the US declared war against Britain. It lasted between 1812-1815. Many historians consider this to be apart of the Napoleonic Wars and the British considered the Americas a second theatre of war.

There were many British regiments introduced to the American continent to deal with the US's constant attacks, near the beginning of the war there were little over 5,200 British regulars, and 10,000 Provincial regulars, but in the war's end there were over 48,160 British regulars. (The US also had an army of 65 regiments, not all infantry of course)

http://www.warof1812.ca/charts/regts_na.htm (for all the British regiments in North America)

Major battles also include the Battle of New Orleans, Battle of Lake Erie, Battle of Baltimore, just to name a couple.

IMO, the U.S is the same as adding the Ottomans,

I just want all the major european powers, and either rhinebund, denmark, sweden, or portugal, and then they could do the unimportant countries [Ottomans and U.S].

It's not though that's why it's not on the Faction voting list.

Did you not read what I posted? Also many other nations involved in the Napoleonic Wars weren't on the faction voting list...

This suggestion is one that we won't see for, with as much as we need done with the game now, 1.5-2 years bare minimum. Austira and Russia are still not included, even then you'd need Rheinland and other various EUROPEAN countries directly involved with the war which was literally based on Napoleon taking over Europe. ya just gotta use logic here man.

He's not suggesting it be added over those countries though and btw our nation list is kinda screwed anyway because AGS wants to do it by poll which means we may be stuck with Ottomans this year if people vote for them the most.

I wish they just went down a list and did Austria, Russia, Spain, and then Rhinebund/Kingdom of Italy/Portugal.

I'd flip Austria and Prussia, but I'd have a poll to see which is first. Those should be both added before any other nation.
