FoE Battle Guide!v.2.02.20
Article I: Introduction

Throughout the centuries of civilization, one thing has always remained prevalent in the human society. War. There have been thousands of wars fought over time, from the great Crusades, to the World Wars, to the War on Terrorism. Humans can not cease fighting. While some may call for peace, the only true way for peace is to be strong enough to cause others to back down. It is only natural that a historical game such as Forge of Empires would have war in its midst. With all the confusing varieties and terms, one can easily get lost amid all the GvGs, GbGs, PvPs, and other abbreviations flying around. That is why we have written this comprehensive guide to help people like you! Welcome to the FoE Battle Guide!
There are five basic unit types, each with their own symbol, strengths, and weaknesses. Every age has one of every unit type, and, from Arctic Future onward, many have multiple types of the same unit.
