Is it better to use ranged or spears against other cavalry?
Also, I thought pikes had a very good defence against cavalry ranged.

Very nice unit though tbh

its better to use bows vs cavalry units, but ofc not when they are directly in front of you
you should always keep distance from them and use ur bows

Always use bows vs other cavalry. Pikes do have good def vs cav ranged, only use riders vs them when you have to or when the pikes are already weak or something.

Kullen left out how rider bows do good damage to units like rohirim and some of the other calvalry units sad.gif also and this im unsure off but sometimes trampling pikes with riders works!

You never want to trample any pikes, unless there are like three archers and only one pike. A good player should never give you the chance to trample through his archers though.

Just trying to be helpfull kullen. Yea desk generaly you want to avoid pikes but sometimes especialy with riders it kinda works. Like lets say to save a building thats being attacked and you want to save it. Riders hit the pikes and they fly everywhere. O and couple times whenevr i trampled pikes from behind my whole batalion survived but killed the pikes somewhat.

Afaik it's quite a known fact that if you trample pikes from behind with any cav, your cav take no damage, and the pikes take a little damage. Too risky to ever do on purpose though imo, unless your playing a noob and you trust them not to turn their pikes around when you trample them from behind.

As for saving the building, it's a 50/50 chance it will work, sometimes you get away with it, sometimes you will lose your whole batallion. So it's only worth doing as a last resort with level 3 RBs, important PBs, and forges ect imo.

I'm pretty sure when it was edited that got added in... I don't remember putting that at all wacko.gif


Original by me : At level 4 he obtains a 25% more armor and 25% more experience buff, which is great for harrasment purposes.
Edited by desk : At level four he obtains leadership, which grants 25% armor, damage, and experience to nearby troops, which is great for harassment purposes.

Ha I was right!!, Desk you noob tongue.gif
