Who are the Union? A mismatched bunch o’ mercenaries, scum and criminals for the most part. You wouldn’t want to meet any of them in a dark alley late at night.
Nobody really knows when orders from above won’t turn up and you’ll have one of them playing for you. How it is that they manage to worm their way into everyone’s teams is beyond my ken. Something to do with the lads high up in the guilds is all anyone can tell you, and even that’s probably guesswork more than truth.
All I know is that you never trust them. Watch them carefully, even when they’re on your side; they might not be next time around.

History of The Union
The Union Playstyle
The Union play style is one of role specialism and individual play. They have an array of strong attacking options, while their defensive game is weaker due to their focus on assassination or surgical removal style play. You need a game plan; set them up to deliver it and you will win. Think of these like a team of precision tools, just don’t try chopping down a tree with a scalpel!
Their strength and flexibility comes from matching the right players to the right job, without much buffing play. Each model is simply strong at what it does, and doesn’t require assistance to do it. As a result, they’re great providing you bring the right tools in the right game, but they can lack flexibility on the pitch if you pick the wrong ones!
The Union are a team for coaches who like strong individual players who don’t rely on buffs, and want to play with a flexible, aggressive lineup.
