So I played aganist this empire player for the 2 time yesterday and was crushed. He had two cannons, a volley gun, level 4 and level 2 with metal lore, 2 units of 10 flaggenlants, brick of swordsmen with griffon banner, block of greatswords, 2 units of 5 knights and detachements.
Last game I tried to stay away from the cannons and refused flanked him but he shot me from across the board. This time I tried to rush him with everything up the middle but they were shot to pieces inches from his lines.
Not sure what to try next, here is my list below, it works fine aganist many armies but I can not figure out how to beat empire with it. Also in my last two games I miscast with my level 4 7 times doing gateway, getting irresitable off only twice and not doing much.
