Post news RSS Roar of Conquest: Latin Empire Roster

A detailed description of the Latin Empire roster.

Posted by on

Greetings! Today I will covering the stats and availability of the Latin Empire roster in Roar of Conquest, overhaul of Stainless Steel 6.4. The Latin Empire is a brand new faction to the mod that is not in Stainless Steel. This article should help those who are curious to have a better understanding of how their roster will perform in battle and when certain units will become available in the campaign. The stats you see here will reflect version 4.0 of ROC. Now onto the details!

The Latin Empire

The Latin strategy revolves around whittling down their enemies with crossbows and then charging in with their cavalry. The Empire is also blessed with good militia units, giving the player the tools needed to hold the line while the crossbows and cavalry do their deadly work. 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. For the glory and survival of the Empire, on to battle!

One of my suggestions for the Latin Empire is to use unit textures from the Aragon faction, because they are the right color, and there is a historical reason for the Aragonese to be involved in the area. Venice is already active in the Aegean too, so Aragon heraldry would be make them stand out from their Venetian neighbors more, and is less iconic (more generic looking) than the other red and yellow factions (Venice, Castile, England.)
