My second or third match ever.

There was an artillery breach on the fort walls.

The enemy was shooting everything that went through.

Allies were hesitating to go in.

I had a drum.

Started playing and walked calmly into the breach.

Everyone follows me, guns ablaze and bayonets fixed.

Some guy comments on chat: "this drummer is really an inspiration, standing his ground and playing amidst all the bullets"

Everyone on my team gets murdered around me.

I'm the only one left, still playing the drums in a corner.

An enemy flautist joins me on the concert at the corner.

We played for two minutes while everyone murdered each other around us.

We died at the end.

-10/10 Go buy this game, now.

I have put in, at this moment in time, 3,800 hours into this game. If that alone does not speak for how great of a game this is, then I can bring up a few points. Firstly, this game has THE best combat system in any game. The closest game I can think of (which still falls short) would be Chivalry. This game and most importantly, the Napleonic Wars DLC, rids us of pay to win or leveling up to get better weapons so you can make up for your poor skill. The time you put in pays you back by learning new tricks to get past the 2-4 directional attacks and blocks of your enemies. The skills you possess are direct reflections of how much effort you put into it. Secondly, the community is great, regiments (clans for those not in the know) are all over and meet together in events or linebattles as well as facing off against each other in 1v1s to see which regiment is superior in shooting, melee, tactics and teamwork with your fellow reg members. One event you may fight alongside another regiment where you work together to defeat the other team made up of many regiments themselves. While in the next you are opposed to each other and must fight those you relied on in the last event. And if regiments aren't for you then the pub life is ok too, there are many servers where all players are welcomed to fight it out in melee only servers, duels, battles and sieges, of just a few gamemodes to name. There is much to do and many people to meet from all over the globe. I hope this helps you in deciding whether to purchase this game or not, I have been meaning to make a review, but after all the time I spent in it, I didn't think my words would do it justice. Overall, I highly recommend this game above everything else and the Napoleonic Wars DLC is a must.

You know it's good when they advertise playable musicians.

Without doubt the most brutal combat experience you can ask for, The cannon demolishes the wall and you and your men charge the smoke filled breach, warcalls and musket fire drown out all other sound, you look a man in the white of his eyes and thrust your bayonet wildly in his direction. And then you die bloody and forgotten on the battlefield.

its like living out "the trooper" 10/10
