Men 2.01 to 2.02 Transition Guide
This is the 2.01 to 2.02 Men of the West Transition Guide. It's fair to say that in 2.01 Men was one of the weakest factions, it had trouble early game and was almost impossible for them to win a game versus Dwarves. Well not anymore!

2.02 Gondor Knight Changes
A cavalry unit that was changed extensively from 2.01 to Unofficial 2.02 are the Gondor Knights. Gondor Knights have high damage in 2.01 but they're not very good in several other areas. They are rather slow cavalry, have low vision, and worst of all, they're poor at trampling because they slow down very quickly.

The Improved Gondor Knight Rush
Everybody knows that the only cavalry rushes that can be used competitively are the Rivendell Lancer rush, the Warg Pack rush, and the Haradrim Lancer rush.
