On clan specialization

Post  Life Pilgrim on Tue Mar 22, 2011 5:32 pm

When we set out on March 10th 2011 it was agreed that the clan would specialize on katana. However somehow someone who activated the clan first chose the cavalry specialization which was then would be our last choice than the others.

Now we think there's good in it in the end. Cavalry makes people nervous since it's good against anything but spearmen and nervous people make all kind of mistakes because they are distracted. They are also highly mobile thus able to dictate engagement as well as very useful to gain and maintain initiative which is always important and could prove critical in both offensive and defensive situations and they are absolutely deadly in charge and the most perfect unit for flanking attacks. And they could dismount too when necessary making them still useful when taking castles. The cons is that they are relatively expensive to get and low in numbers and require some notable skills and some baby sitting using them for maximum effect failing which they could become a liability in battle. But they are the most suitable shock units for good aggressive battlefield commander if not the best shock unit in the whole game which in my opinion they are.

Other thing is this that most clan would specialize on katana or swords and you have the rock, scissor & paper play out. Cav specialization will be rare that they become more effective since katana would be the majority and since cav would be rare thus the less reason to choose spear specialization. But nonetheless for dealing with spear specialization the katana samurai could be used against them and cavalry is rather versatile. Cavalry could be used against archer, katana and even against other cavalry especially the ones without specialization and buffs. It could even be used against spearman by flanking charge attack especially from behind and would only took seconds before enemy routs when flanked from behind by charging cavalry.

But I admit cavalry specialization would not be the most comfortable specialization for reasons I have pointed. Arguably mediocre players would be most comfortable with sword specialization since they would not need to baby sit them as much and could contend watching their katana units to hold on their own when engaged by other infantry units on his initiative or otherwise without too much worry(I personally preferred katana specialization as I am mediocre). Thus cavalry admittedly in my opinion is best suited for good aggressive battlefield commander who are full of initiative than for most mediocre players. I don't recommend going full cavalry though. Personally I prefer a more balanced army composition unless you have mastered some peculiar tactics to win with most cavalry army which I doubt and it could backfire badly if you meet a capable player.

And though Cavalry specialization may prevent some people from joining us because they prefer Katana specialization but on the other hand it will attract more experienced and aggressive players who usually prefer cavalry specialization.

In the end I would like to say that it might be a mistake to have a cavalry specialization but it could turn out to be a brilliant mistake.
