Units: Appropriate Defense and Attack

Before you conduct your first warfare, you need to take a close look at all available units, their capabilities and intended use. Effective use of army will not only allow to win the combat, but also to minimize casualties among units. Fewer soldiers are lost in combat, lower costs you have for participation in war, and the higher could be warfare intensity.

Lords and Knights: Units, Appropriate Defense and Attack

There are only 15 various units. 3 units (Pushcart, Oxcart and Ship) are transport units. They are needed only to deliver resources and have no impact on the course of battle. The rest 12 units are designed to conduct warfare; we will enlarge upon this point.

There are three branches of military force: infantry, cavalry and artillery. Soldiers have different parameters of force against each military branch. Generally, infantry is most effective against cavalry, cavalry is most efficient against artillery, and artillery is best-performing against infantry. This endless circle generates balance of forces between units and brings in variability to players’ actions. Besides, combat characteristics are further divided into defensive and offensive units. Ultimately, each soldier has only 6 combat parameters that determine his effectiveness in particular military actions.

In terms of their field of application, units can be roughly divided into 4 groups: defensive units, offensive units, Vikings and Siege Weapons.

Defensive units

These units are designed to conduct defensive warfare. They have high protection rates and very low attack parameters. Due to a high level of casualties, it is exceptionally unwise to use this type of soldiers for an attack. Thus, for example, in a battle for a castle in 289 level, 500 Spearman will be defeated by just 15 Crossbowmen. However, if we change their roles, the same 500 Spearman being on the defensive will destroy not just 15, but 1500 attacking Crossbowmen! The difference is more than 100 times.

If you doubt the credibility of these figures, recheck them using our free-of-charge calculator of battles.

Spearman, Crossbowmen and Armoured Horseman are classified as defensive units.

Spearman

This is a basic defensive unit available for construction from the first days of the game. It belongs to "Infantry" class and is highly efficient on the defensive against enemy cavalry.

From this point on in the article, there will be presented tables of efficiency assessment of units during the battles between each other in terms of casualty ratio, resource costs and time for army reinstatement.

The data is given for soldiers from fully improved fortresses without regard to scores of defensive works (please, do not confuse them with bonus protection parameters for units).

Let’s address the figures from the table in more detail. We will take a look at Spearman efficiency in a defensive combat against attacking Lancer Horsemans. The first figure in a cell means that one Spearman destroy 2.08 Lancer Horsemans and one Lancer Horseman destroy 0.52 Spearmans. The second one shows economic costs of the parties for participation in a combat. In this particular case, the attacking party has to spend 7.48 of resources against 1 resource of the defending party. The third figure shows the ratio of time needed for army reinstatement: it will take the attacking party 4.77 times more time for restoration of Lancer Horseman than for the reinstatement of defending Spearman.

Pay close attention to the data from this table and share it with your fellows. Rest assured, many of them, even if they have vast combat experience, never thought about soldier's efficiency from economic point of view.

Crossbowman

This is the strongest defensive unit, which is available upon study of Crossbow science. It belongs to “Artillery” class and is highly efficient on the defensive against enemy infantry and artillery.

Attacking units

These units are designed to conduct offensive actions. They have high attacking performance and low protection rates. It is reasonable to use this type of units to protect the castle after its successful seizure, while defensive troops are approaching to the castle.

Swordsman

This is the slowest attacking unit that is available after the study of “Swordsmith” science. It belongs to “Infantry” class and is efficient in the attack against enemy cavalry.

Vikings

They first appeared in the game in 2016. They are available for construction only on certain days when there is a special campaign on the server. These are the only units for the recruitment of which you need copper. Vikings are extremely effective in an attack, but as opposed to standard attacking units, they can break protection bridges. You may read about this technique in more detail in the article “Break of a Protection Bridge with the Help of Vikings”.

Berserker

In terms of applicability, they are similar to common swordsman, but they travel on the map in double-quick time and have much stronger attacking performance against equestrians. They are capable of breaking a defensive bridge, if it is constructed based on cavalry.
