“Brilliant Japanese general who conquered almost a third of Japan.”

## DescriptionEdit

Nobunaga is the third General available to players, unlocked after upgrading the Castle to level 2 in the Gunpowder Age.

## Historical Description Edit

Oda Nobunaga, original name Kichihōshi, later Saburō (born 1534, Owari province, Japan—died June 21, 1582, Kyōto) Japanese warrior and government official who overthrew the Ashikaga (or Muromachi) shogunate (1338–1573) and ended a long period of feudal wars by unifying half of the provinces in Japan under his rule. Nobunaga, as virtual dictator, restored stable government and established the conditions that led to the unification of the entire country in the years following his death.

## Attacking Strategies: Edit

• Nobunaga the Great can tank up defensive damage and deal damage to enemy defenses/troops.
• AVOID ballistics towers, cannons, or anti-tank towers with Nobunaga. These defense buildings are designed to take out any troop/general that has high hit-points.
• A good way to avoid the Cannons is to rally straight back out of your clean path near buildings, bringing your troops back with your generals to help escort him or for Nobunaga to kill any cavalry, foot troop, or general stalking your troops
• Avoid rallying at 45 degree angles, since your troops are defenseless until meeting the rally point, and it is very possible cannons, towers, and troops can kill Nobunaga and your troops if you pass by the defense buildings.
• If you are attacking without tanks with your troops, Nobunaga can take up some of the damage, and is best used to take out mortar fire. Beware not to rally your troops with Nobunaga to a Mortar that can still hit your troops, since it will turn into that Nobunaga will be the only one alive.
• If a mortar is in position to wipe out troops, but is easily accessible without Cannons in range, put Nobunaga down and rally him to the Mortar to wipe it out. Then continue your attack with placement of troops and tactics.

## Trivia Edit

• In 1562 he entered into an alliance with Tokugawa Ieyasua capable daimyo of the neighbouring province of Mikawa (also now in Aichi).
• In 1567 Nobunaga, feeling that he had secured his rear flank, moved his base of operations north to the city of Gifu.
• Nobunaga promoted a new economic policy by abolishing the collection of tolls on the roads and from the guilds, both of which had been privileged sources of income for the local daimyo.
• By the spring of 1582 he had conquered central Japan and was attempting to extend his hegemony over western Japan.
• Nobunaga was wounded during the attack, and, with no chance of escape, he committed seppuku, a form of ritual suicide.
