Posted by on

Greetings! Today I will covering the stats and availability of the English roster in Roar of Conquest, overhaul mod of Medieval II. This article should help those who are curious to have a better understanding of how England's roster will perform in battle and when certain units will become available in the campaign.

Note: The stats you see here have been updated for Roar of Conquest: The Late Middle Ages VI. Now onto the details!


The Kingdom of England

The English are blessed with a strong roster, especially in the later portions of the campaign; strong heavy infantry, excellent longbows, and decent heavy cavalry. For reference, the unit sizes I will be listing here are when the game is put on 'ultra unit size', Secondary Melee Attack represents the secondary weapon cavalry units use after completing a charge, and the acronym AP stands for armor-piercing. Now, onto glory and an overabundance of arrows!
