I need help finding an online strategy game, the name of which I have forgotten.
When I was around 14 or 15, there was a pretty cool game I used to play on and off.
It was a strategy game. When you signed up, you chose what European country you served under. The game would start you at the rank of private, and you could recruit soldiers and other unit types to serve in your squad. As you succeeded in battle you would rank up, and in doing so you would gain more power and the ability to recruit more troops. Each troop in your squad could level up and become stronger as they fought.
I never reached the highest ranks, but those who did commanded an army unto themselves.
Anyways, the point was to work with the commanders of your country to conquer all other countries. When someone wins, things reset and everyone starts over again.
Anyone know what this game was? does it still exist? There was also a similar, but more advanced game that was the same in many respects, but also included the ability to lead naval fleets as opposed to army, which served as logistics for army commanders.
