In Imperator, there is a Primary Frontline and a Secondary Frontline. The First Frontline will enter battle first, damaging the opposing side until its morale breaks or it suffers enough damage to be eliminated. The Secondary Frontline will then begin to move forward to become the new front. On the sides the units designated as Flank units will be deployed, these will first fight and kill the opposing flank, and then start targeting the center if they can.

In the army interface you will be able to select which unit type you want to be prioritized for First Frontline, Second Frontline and Flank. The preselected choices will depend on your Military Traditions but they can be changed freely by the player or the AI for each army.

==Combat Tactics==
One of the more major difference-makers in combat is the tactics. For each army you can determine one offensive and defensive tactic, which each has 1 they are great versus, and 1 they are bad versus.
+
{{SVersion|Pre-release}}
 +
For each army, exactly one tactic is chosen out of battle. Each tactic is strong (giving a bonus to damage) against two other tactics, and poor (giving a penalty to damage) against two more. The base effectiveness of a tactic is determined by the army's composition, with each matching unit type giving a bonus to effectiveness. A given tactic will be useless if the army has no cohorts that give a bonus to it.
  
The offensive tactic is used if you are the **attacker** in a battle, and the defensive tactic is used if you are *not* the attacker.
+
The first five tactics are available to all countries, while the others are unlocked by military traditions.

All Out Assault
+
==Unit Objectives==
+30% versus Withdraw
+
Unit objectives allow you to assign individual armies orders to act autonomously under the control of the AI. Unit objectives are a way to outsource the management of some armies to the AI, essentially using the same things that the AI itself uses to control its armies and navies. You can at any time select an objective for each army or navy under player control (or several units at once, in which case the objective applies separately to each one currently), which enables AI for said unit, making it automatically take actions almost as if it was controlled by an AI country.
+20% versus Probing Counter Attack
 
-20% versus Hard Defence
 
Both sides takes +10% casualties.
 
  
Frontal Assault
+
===Available Objectives===
+20% versus Withdraw
+
* '''No Objective''': The unit remains idle unless ordered by the player. This is the default for players.
+10% versus Probing Counter Attack
+
* '''Independent Operations''': The unit acts independently, attacking enemy armies/navies, occupying enemy cities, etc. as it sees fit.
-10% versus Hard Defence
+
* '''Naval Landing''': If there is at least one available and sufficiently large navy which has Naval Landing selected, ordering an army to move to a city that's accessible only by sea will make this navy pick up that army and ship it to that city.
 +
* '''Defend Borders''': The army will stay inside friendly borders, fighting enemy armies that enter and retaking occupied cities.
 +
* '''Hunt Fleets''': The navy will seek out enemy fleets and attempt to engage them.
 +
* '''Fight Rebels''': Army will focus on destroying rebel (slave revolt) armies and retaking rebel-occupied cities.
 +
* '''Reconnaissance''': Patrols across the country's borders or nearby seas reporting enemy movements.
 +
* '''Keep in Reserve''': The army will stay within the country's borders and actively avoid contact with the enemy unless superior.
  
Outflanking Attack
+
===Special Objectives===
+10% versus Strong Counter Attack
+
There are also many Unit Objectives that you cannot pick but that you may still encounter. Disloyal Generals will make use of a specific unit objective where they essentially do what they themselves want to. Making you unable to order them around or do things like send them to a certain death. Likewise Mercenaries that you do not pay will stop taking your orders and operate on their own.There is also special logic for Slave Revolts, where rebel stacks will seek out the closest rich city to attempt to loot and set free more of their kin.

Combat in Imperator occurs when two armies are in the same city. The army first in the city is considered the defender, unless the other side has control over fortifications in the province.

Deployment

In Imperator, there is a Primary Frontline and a Secondary Frontline. The First Frontline will enter battle first, damaging the opposing side until its morale breaks or it suffers enough damage to be eliminated. The Secondary Frontline will then begin to move forward to become the new front. On the sides the units designated as Flank units will be deployed, these will first fight and kill the opposing flank, and then start targeting the center if they can.

In the army interface, you will be able to select which unit type you want to be prioritized for First Frontline, Second Frontline and Flank. The preselected choices will depend on your Military Traditions but they can be changed freely by the player or the AI for each army. The size of the flank can also be set, either 2 cohorts, 5 cohorts or 10 cohorts.

Additionally some unit types are now scripted to be able to deal or take more morale damage or more physical damage, making them more or less suited for each role. In most cases this means that you might see a first skirmish phase where your Primary Frontline of Archers or Light Infantry try to do as much damage as possible to the other side before their morale breaks and they retreat. They are then followed by the units of the Second Frontline, potentially composed of heavier units such as Heavy Infantry or/and Elephants.

In an ideal world you might choose to deploy something like Horse Archers on the Flanks, with a high maneuver value that would allow them to deal damage far into the center once they have defeated the opposing flank, but you might also go for something specifically to prioritize countering the opposing flank.

When you do not have enough of your preferred unit type for a role the game will fill out with units in order of how high their build cost are.

Combat

Each day, each unit will fire on one target in front of them, or towards the side, if they have a high enough flanking ability. Damage is determined by adding up the dice with the combat modifiers from terrain and leaders, where a total of 0 or below gives 2% damage, and the maximum of 15 from terrain and dice gives 30% of damage.

Crossing a river, or doing a naval landing, gives -1 to the attacker. Mountains gives +2 to the defender, while Hills, March and Forests gives +1 to the defender. Leaders impact combat as well, with the difference in martial giving a bonus to the one with the highest martial. Then the damage value is modified by the following before being applied to the target. If you are firing from the back line, you are basically at 50% efficiency.

Combat Tactics

For each army, exactly one tactic is chosen out of battle. Each tactic is strong (giving a bonus to damage) against two other tactics, and poor (giving a penalty to damage) against two more. The base effectiveness of a tactic is determined by the army's composition, with each matching unit type giving a bonus to effectiveness. A given tactic will be useless if the army has no cohorts that give a bonus to it.

The first five tactics are available to all countries, while the others are unlocked by military traditions.

  • Defend Borders: The army will stay inside friendly borders, fighting enemy armies that enter and retaking occupied cities.
  • Hunt Fleets: The navy will seek out enemy fleets and attempt to engage them.
  • Fight Rebels: Army will focus on destroying rebel (slave revolt) armies and retaking rebel-occupied cities.
  • Reconnaissance: Patrols across the country's borders or nearby seas reporting enemy movements.
  • Keep in Reserve: The army will stay within the country's borders and actively avoid contact with the enemy unless superior.

Special Objectives

There are also many Unit Objectives that you cannot pick but that you may still encounter. Disloyal Generals will make use of a specific unit objective where they essentially do what they themselves want to. Making you unable to order them around or do things like send them to a certain death. Likewise Mercenaries that you do not pay will stop taking your orders and operate on their own.There is also special logic for Slave Revolts, where rebel stacks will seek out the closest rich city to attempt to loot and set free more of their kin.
