To conquer this dynamic battlefield system, our team took on one of five player classes (up from just three in the single player game): Archer, Mage, Warrior, Priestess or Assassin. Each has a complex skill tree, offering different career paths within each class. Experience points are earned for kills and flag captures that grant ever more powerful abilities. While there are different paths to follow, you can reassign skill points at any point you'd like. However, the game unfolds pretty quickly, and constant fiddling with skills didn't help us very much.
Most importantly, skill points are carried from round-to-round within each campaign, rocketing us through our skill trees. Every new Crusade game begins fresh with all players at level 0, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to explore different class branches and find what works best for you.
Balancing out your side's classes is key to survival, so let's take a closer look at the five different members of your team.
