Where to use
- Extremely effective when an enemy is trying to rush you with an army consisting only of Heavy Cavalry. they will only kill a heep of Heavy Cavalry if you have a alot more pikemen defending then then amount of heavy cavalry attacking
- These units are extremely good in defense. However, their use in offensive attacks is rather limited except when there are some Heavy Cavalry to take out.
- Pikemen are also very useful for taking out crossbows.
- Pikeman are great for defending against almost any kind of troop.
- Each pikeman gives 2 might.
- Appear (not fully tested) to have a 3* modifier to attack when used against Cavalry or Heavy Cavalry. Bob b 0052 GMT 14 Feb 11
