The Tribal Faction (Formerly known as the Stone Age) is a Faction in Totally Accurate Battle Simulator.


The Tribal Faction is a faction in Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. It is based on a time in prehistory in which humans were cave dwellers and now extinct animals such as the mammoth appear. It is set ~100,000 - ~10,000 B.C. The Units appear as primitive humans and animals. (Clubber Mammoth etc.)It has two regular Tribal maps, as well as a much larger sandbox mode map.

It is the first faction introduced in the Campaign, and the first Faction the player has to use in TABS. 

It is an offensive faction, privileging crude damage to protection as every "human" Unit barely wear loincloths and bone as armor but wield quite powerful weapons. The high damage and low defense can be hard to use well tactically, but makes it very easy for beginners.   

Another strength of the Tribal Faction is the overall cheap cost. All the Units except for the Mammoth, cost 400 or less, so players can place down a lot of Tribal Units to swarm the map against lesser amounts of enemies that are stronger. However, this proves futile against crowd control units like the Catapult and Zeus who can easily decimate the army with their attacks because they have moves that hit multiple units.
