No, as it sais in the above post, it speeds up support, allowing you to easier protect your villages and allies by sending support.
Archers are almost as good versus Cavalry (Compared to Spears) as good versus Infantry (Compared to Axes) but weak versus Mounted Archers (Compared to Swordsmen)Spears are an effective defence against LC though aren't they? Also, they're cheap and are quicker to make. But the balance will be harder to diversify.
i did some simulations, 1/1 Arch/Swords make a GREAT job... and the best attack against is a mono mounted archer ^^ (and in any case, if you use ram against walls, the rams die in huge number)Seems to me that 1:1 Archers:Sword will do a good job. It absolutely pwns infantry, and does good damage versus both LC and MA (Mounted Archers)
EDIT: With the new units, I'd take a bet that HC might see some action. Their defence is good against them all, but especially against Archers.
Woah, not only are you right, but that means they're inferior to Swordsmen, in all respects (Bar speed). They even have the same attack :icon_razz:i did some simulations, 1/1 Arch/Swords make a GREAT job... and the best attack against is a mono mounted archer ^^ (and in any case, if you use ram against walls, the rams die in huge number)
in ant case, i dont think heavy cavallery can have a chance... the onlt positive aspect of it is the speed, but it's too expensive and not so strong (if you see the defence/poulation values, it has only a 33 12 30 ...!)
So heavy calvary doesn't pwn anymore? I'm used to them being the ultimate support troop and attack troop. Of course, I still use cheaper units, but this may take some getting used to.
Why did they cancel leveling up, anyway? Without additional levels, will you still be able to research 15 techs?
