I didn't have a problem being terribly outnumbered, but I used the "no bells" approach. I only had two fewer SOLs than the king, and had a comparable number of soldiers and more dragoons. I still was whipped terribly thanks to the bombard feature, and the fact that manowars somehow never lose to a SOL. My question is this, is it still possible to get a european power to send an expeditionary force to help? I remember in the first game a huge european force would arrive to help if a certain number of bells were accumulated.
