So how bout it pit? Are the Knights Templar overrated? I think they are. They weren't the only ones there! Their was also the Hospitallers, the Teutons, and not to mention the actual royal orders - ie the knights that fought as the official military of the Crusader states (Jerusalem Order, Antiochene Order, Edessan Order, etc).

Now the Templars were an effective fighting force I grant you. But how come the other Orders are always overshadowed? how come the Templars are the most emphasized in history?

Hospitallers also had huge money-lending and estates in Europe, even before the suppression of the Templars. Granted the Templars had more, but still I wouldn't discount the other guys. anyway Im rambling. whats your opinion?

PS
Yes, I concede Im more favorable to the Hospitallers due to their charitable origins, and yes, the Teutons are known more for the Northern Crusades against pagan Prussia/Lithuania

mate don't even need catapults check this

longbowmen have mad range (seriously, the only unit that outrangers them is the bombardiers)
halberds as support (to take down the cavalry rush)

teutonic knights are some of the worst units in the entire game. teuton knights on the other hand have some utility. even the worst aoc players can pull 20 kts 20 minutes out of their hat with a good map.

tbh you'd be done after my mayan drush (real banter right there). do you really think your arabia boom game is on point enough to even manage a fc through a competent meso drush? wont even talk about the sub half hour fast imp eagle rush thats irrelevant plumes get ya

Longbowmen are easily the worst special unit ever. Mangudais and some siege rams will rip everything apart.

The knight templars are repeatedly brought up b/c they had ties to the Ark of the Covenant. Atleast thats what I always hear when they are talked about on TV.
