Armies[edit]

Not all factions train the same units. For instance, Chu and Yue tend to train a mix of Chinese and Southern units, while Goryeo does not create Ge or Ji units.

Chinese armies[edit]

Chinese armies are primarily users of infantry. While their units don't have the stopping power of barbarian units from the south, they can be easily upgraded many times over, so that by the late game Chinese armies usually tend to have a mix of powerful infantry units, war machines and cavalry. The only issue is that when it comes to cavalry, many Chinese factions tend to be lacking in anything heavier than scythe chariots, and any mounted units the Chinese recruit are expensive.
