Arms & Armor: Upgrade Your Ragtag band of Peasants to Swordsmen and Knights
1100AD offers several unique campaigns for multiplayer madness – along with other real people, you can embark on a crusade against Saladin's army attempting to recapture Jerusalem, or you can engage in massive multiplayer warfare through several different tournament-style options like citadelt (where you'll attack a beseiged citadel occupied by another player). Here's a look at some of 1100AD's features; when it comes to immersing players in a medieval world, other multiplayer strategy games don't even come close.
1100AD's simulation is augmented by many different options for arms & armor: your army is sure to benefit from a thoughtful mixture of Pikemen, swordsmen, archers, men-at-arms, and different cavalry units like knights and scouts. Without any armor and wielding a single axe, men-at-arms depend on the heavily-armored pikemen to protect them from cavalry, and keen commanders can send their legions of swordsmen with thick metal armor to confront archers, leaving men-at-arms to guard the trebuchets, whose single swinging arm inflicts the highest attack points of any unit.
