The Ancient faction is a faction which contains multiple Units resembling Ancient, Greek and Roman soldiers. These units are moderately priced.
This faction gets the main usage of its units from strategy, (like the Romans and Greeks were famous for), by favoring the use of shields along with spears. Some units are inspired by Greek mythology, like Zeus for example.
- Ancient 1 - Old Seaside Greek Town, with a giant Hoplite statue and a lighthouse and is almost symmetrical in appearance, and this map includes Artemis.
- Ancient 2 - A hillside clustered by several temples, one in which can be found the Teacher.
- Ancient Sandbox - A big open area that has plenty of space to place units. On the sides there are two towns, and at the very top of the map there is a mountain with a temple on top. You can get the fan bearer, cupid, and chu ko nu here.

- The Ballista used to be in the Medieval (Crusaders) faction, but was switched to the Greece Faction in Closed Alpha. This was because it was designed by the Romans and, also, the Ancient Faction was underpowered.
- The Greece Faction didn't have its own map back in Closed Alpha. Units from this faction could be found on Scotland, Sahara and Denmark in the campaign.
- During the Roman Republic, the Romans used a very similar machine to the Ballista known as the Scorpio. It is more like a long-range sniper than an artillery piece that was used to target specific people.
- The Scorpio is believed to has been based off of the Ballista.
- Members of this Faction appeared as early as the Pre-Alpha.
- Sarissa was a kind of spear that was used by infantry of Alexander the Great.
- The Teacher is either a Renaissance secret unit or an Ancient secret unit.
- The ancient faction has the most expensive secret unit. (Artemis)
