What would an army of Cataphracts do? What would happen if I sent 100,000 to attack my enemy?
What would 75,000 battering rams do? I’d love to see my enemy’s face!
So..what would happen if you had an unreal amount of a powerful unit? Would you completely dominate the game?
The simple answer is – no.
The battles in Evony are in a circle of sorts. Different units are very effective against other certain units, fairly powerful against other units, and terrible versus others.
Let’s give an example:
I have 100,000 Cataphracts and you have 100,000 pikemen.
Well, just because Cataphracts are powerful that doesn’t mean I would be victorious. Although pikemen are considered the weaker military unit, they would win this battle. Why? Pikemen have an advantage over all cavalry units because of their longer range (spears/pikes extended). The pikemen spears would annihilate the horsemen in seconds.
Hods Realm will be posting a complete guide to Military Tactics later on. Please keep your eyes perked because this is going to be a huge future release.
