    Sentence

    I'm puzzled.
    This is from a computer game.

    Infantry have a small area effect attack added, encouraging their use as well.

    Can you make the sentence a bit clearly for me?

    Re: Sentence

    This is a strategy game.

    Cavalry archers have their main disadvantage, their weak attack against buildings, counteracted with the Saracen culture. Complimenting this is a free light cavalry upgrade which encourages the use of this unit alone and as protection for horse archers. Infantry have a small area effect attack added, encouraging their use as well.

    Can't understand what the highlighted words mean exactly.
    As I understood their in the second clause of the last sentence mention to the previous sentence.

    Re: Sentence

    In computer gaming an 'area of effect' attack, AoE, means the attack hits all targets in a radius. A normal attack hits a single target.

    A bullet would be a normal attack since it hits just one target. A bomb would be an AoE attack since it hits all targets in its blast radius, regardless of how many there are.

    You would use an AoE attack on enemies that are grouped closely together to maximize the number of targets which are hit.

    I think that a small area effect atack added is a disadvantage of infantry so that why you should use cavalry horses. But I can't understand what means a small area effect atack added.

    Thanks for you replies

    Not at all. The game designer thought that infantry are a little too weak, nobody would use them, so he beefed them up. He gave them a small AoE attack, say 'Throw Grenade', to make them more powerful to encourage their use.

    It looks as if the infantry has an effect only in a small area of activity, but enough to make them useful within the game plan.
