  • Great cavalry commander for free to play and pay to win players

Xiang Yu is a commander that every cavalry player should get no matter if they are pay to win or free to play. He does a lot of damage and already a lot of people replace Attila with him. But he needs more testing to see if he is more powerful than attila. 

The great thing about Xiang Yu is that he can be used for field battles and rallying objectives so we will see him a lot in KVK and AOO. When whales do more testing we will update the guide but in our opinion, you should get him. 


Xiang Yu was a ruler of the Chu during the last years of the Qin Dynasty. His grandfather, Xiang Yan, was a well-known general, politician, and military strategist. A born warrior, Xiang Yu joined his uncle Xiang Liang’s uprising against the Qin Dynasty and receives much of the credit for its success. In the Battle of Julu in 207 BCE, Xiang Yu led only 50,000 soldiers to defeat a Qin army of 400,000.

Shortly thereafter, Xiang Yu’s army invaded Guanzhong, burning the palace to the ground and killing the entire Qin royal family. In 206 BCE, the king of the Han sent troops to conquer Xiang Yu. While Xiang Yu won battles elsewhere, a combination of betrayals and a lack of supplies led to his eventual defeat in 202 Rather than be captured, Xiang Yu chose to take his own life. Historians have depicted him as a figure of unparalleled bravery, though perhaps somewhat foolhardy.
