Default Unit Spotlight: Battering Ram

Zoom (requires log in)Unit Spotlight: Battering Ram

The Battering Ram is one of the most useful siege weapons in LoC.
It has sacrificed speed for additional heavy armor, and can hold off enemy fire while it breaks through gates or smashes guard towers down to the ground.

Not only has the Battering Ram a crushing attack against enemy buildings. But it can also hold a cargo up to 8 units. So once you batter down the gate of an enemy settlement it's time to unload your army, which have been safely hidden inside the Battering Ram. This tactic is most deadly and overwhelming to any opponent.

However, sometimes the fact that the Battering Ram is slow and can't attack units may prove to be a weakness.

Concept of the Battering Ram:

I don't know. I don't think that would fall under the line of "fast-paced".
Besides I think it's better this way, for now atleast.

This way, you don't actually know for a fact that there are eight swordsmen inside of the thing. Deception. Awesome.

why wouldnt u need to know? the enemy is at your gates, once they break down your gates, swordsmen WILL come through. its not like the rams can tank an entire army.

Looks awesome. Though, I think 8 units might be a tad too much, but perhaps it isn't as much in your map as in wc3 melee.

If it's so fast-paced you shouldn't even have a battering ram.

You should have a cannon that shoots your units across the map and have an Asian guy make Karate noises for the attack and unload sounds.

That'd be kickass.
