whats the difference between the knights Templar and the knights hospitaler? or the other guild based knights for that matter?

and aside from appearance, is there any reason to favor one over the other in multiplayer?
Point is, there is a reason that the ESRB does not rate online [play].

A Knight in shining armor is a knight who has never had his metal truly tested.

    Well, knights hospitaller can be upgraded a little further in armor, and their morale is normal. Templars have one less armor upgrade, and are impetuous (whether impetuous or normal morale is better might be disputed: disciplined is probably the best, but between normal and impetuous it's a tougher call.)

    The M2TW in-game info says that Templars might charge without orders, whereas Hospitallers apparently don't.

    Ironic considering that the Templars were the ones known for their discipline, well all knightly orders in Outremer were. At Arsuf it was the Hospitallers that broke ranks first and charged the enemy, before the order had been give, fortunately it did not matter since King Richard was about to give the order anyway...

    At Arsuf, Hospitaller rank were forced to break the formation and charged because they were forced to. It was either they stood there and getting obliterated or they charge the enemy hoping to break the enemy attack.
    If the condition wasn't that desperate, Hospitaller will retain their formation and follow order.
    I will never buy any fantasy, fiction and non historical Total War title.

    Point mainly being that they charged without orders that day, so it seems like a stereotype that the Templars are singled out as the undisciplined ones. Probably a product of CA watching too much Ivanhoe, although I think this game was made by an Australian division. No idea what happened to that division.
