Preparing for Battle FAQs

It depends on the unit, you may only have 1 of certain unit types. If you disband one of these units then you will be able to buy/craft another. Other units costing gold will need to be purchased multiple times in order to have more than 1 within your army.

 

Units you may only have 1 of:

- All Knight units (including the Knights Cavalry) - (The Longsword Knight does not require gold, only building the Knight's Manor is required to get this unit)

- Crossbowmen

- Composite bow archers

- Medium cavalry (does not require gold to be bought, only building the stable is required to get this unit)

The Slot located at the middle back of the Army is exclusive to Artillery unit which can only be recruited through a Workshop. The 2 slots on either side of the back row however, can be used by both Artillery and Soldiers.

- Orders and unit skills use a flag system to denote which one is active.

- Only one flag can be active at a time

- Small flag = unit skill (one exception is when you use the fear order, the small flag shows who causes fear and the big flag shows who is has the debuff fear)

- Large flag = orders

- A flag provides a specific bonus (positive or negative) while the flag hovers over the unit

- If a flag is gone, meaning it is not active anymore, the effect disappears as well

This is simply having an understanding of how we use the rock-paper-scissors mechanic. The obvious:

- Spears beat Cavalry

- Cavalry beats swords

- Swords beat spear

But then we have also added the armour as a new factor where some weapons are more effective depending on the armour of the unit attacked.

Also, unit stats should be taken into account as a very well trained spearmen unit might defeat a less well trained swordsmen unit.

And finally, each unit has a number of men in its ranks; this will also affect the outcome of a battle. The more men remaining alive in a unit the more chance they have to land a killing blow.

The 3 artilleries have also an impact in battles and depend on how you use them:

- Trebuchet is very slow but has a big Area of Effect and kills everything it falls on – Beware of friendly fire

- Mangonel is faster with a big area of Effect as well but only has a chance of burning units (the lighter the armour the more chances are men will burn) – Beware of friendly fire

- Ballistas are the fastest and have the smallest and least chance of killing enemies. However this is compensated by the fact that it doesn’t friendly fire.

Skills are one of the most important decisions you will have to take outside of battles that will directly affect your battles.

They are enhancements you can use.

Each unit can use their skill once per battle.

These are supposed to complement your orders by either reinforcing your orders or offering more variety to your strategy.
