First,third and fourth map can get 3 stars when playing first time.Second and fifth map is very difficult.Trying to get 3 stars now.
I think fourth map 3 stars requirment can drop to 10 turns because I win it in 10 turns.

2nd map:Split your army to 3 groups,1 to take out blue,one to defend your starting position and one to destroy green,as well as building knights in all your tcs,after green is dead,use the army there to slowly push north as well as army you were using to defend your starting poisition and to destroy blue,the main point is to not fight everywhone at once and let some people fight themselfs
5th map:I fall back and land in estonia,once i land in estonia i use my transports to tank damage so my troops dont lose hp,then later use warships to tank damage as well,your northern group needs to be very strategic and take out blue piece by piece,after awhile,my northern group reaches green from north and group in estonia slowly pushing reach green's tc
Big tip:Dont let enemy maceman's huge dmg counter attack your attacks :) Attack them with warships/axeman trowers then attack them once with viking berserker or your maceman
Good Luck!

Win in turn 9 in map “Rival Expansion”.I think set it to turn 11~12 turns is better.

Map 3 is very challenging. :lol: I tried around 20 times to get 3 stars before. Once you win it, I am sure that you can beat > 90% of campaign maps. :P

Here is my little advice.
1.Try to lure knights to attack berserker first so that your berserker can kill knight with one hit.
2.Maceman can destroy a factory/man at arms/pikeman/... with one hit.
3.Missionary is a strong unit beacuse it is a healing unit that has movement 4.
4.If you really can't get 3 stars, try to use conversion tech + missionary. :P

@Yvonenbert
There must have been changes made since this post was made. Beserkers casn't kill a knight in 1 hit. Macemen can't take out a man at arms in 1 hit. Except for Berserker on archers, no one is getting killed with just 1 hit. You're outnumbered 2:1 when the game starts, and the AI can produce nearly 6:1 compared to you when it gets all it's buildings captured from the rebels. I casn't see how it's mathmaticlly possible to win this in 9 turns

It is really hard but possible. Nevermind the number of the turns. I realised, that destroyed enemy buildings decrease the number of the turns in the end. I do not know the exact rule, but on some maps I could keep the turn limit only when I destroyed all the enemy watch towers. Tamtam12345 gave wise advice. Use your berserkers as tanks in the battle and train missionaries to heal them. I won this map when in an important moment I could convert a knight before AI could kill my berserker with it. Good luck and enjoy this fantastic game!😉

The 7th map is impossible to complete in 12 turns. Today I tried my first attempt, I'm already at turn 40 or so (luckily I'm beating it, at least!). I've played this game for about 5-6 years, on and off, and I was never 300% more turns away from 3 stars.

This is insanity! There is no way anyone can beat this in 12 turns! I know this is a really, really old campaign (I've been stuck at map 3 for years and still only have 2 stars) but the Berserkers are probably not as strong as they used to be. Please update number of turns to reflect the evolution of the game!

Btw, excellent campaign. Kudos to the creator.

Yes, I think it's impossible to complete it in 12 turns now.

True. I think turn 40~45 for 3 stars is suitable for normal players.

It should be completable at 25turns.

It relies on AI movement(purple friendly units) so 25 turns may not be enough if purple colour did it poorly.

For my campaign game, purple will lose definitely but it will depend on you how his performance will go.

7th map - England - I just did it in 23 turns.
Earlier (few months ago, maybe a year) it took me somewhat similar number of turns too (24-26, not sure).
Back when counter with bonus where always 100% and maceman had 17 power I recall, that map was doable under 20 turns, but I never managed to get even close to 12 turns (that was too long ago to remember specifics, but I think it was 18 or 16 turns as a record).
All 3 of those tries purple player didn't loose - it retained 1 or 2 tc (which actually slowed some of my units).
But he doesn't even act as a proper distraction - I think map may have been designed with a thought, that southernmost tc would be attacked by purple, but he does not do that with any success - either he lands, but fails to take over tc (AI prioritizes defending tc, which it did not) or doesn't even land there, concentrating on 3 eastern tcs, which allows for green tcs to build defences, especially - long to destroy fortresses.
Green utilising fire and poison archers slows down potential fast attack significantly.
Yellow is annoying too. Two of his tc can be taken over if player acts fast, but the other two always manages to build towers around.
Blue should loose against purple, provided, that player attacks yellow properly.
Teal (light greenish blue) is easy to take using 3 viking heroes.
Map must have been designed with whole different AI and depending too much on 1-shotting enemy units.
It should have different set of units to retain fast attack or just have number of turns for stars changed.

Generally speaking the whole campaign is not really doable in said number of turns (maybe some map is an exclusion), because of those two changes + whole different AI behaviour + many new units, that AI can make.
I got my 3 stars on at least few maps by a bug (displayed number of turns on a win is different from ingame counter).
