I have a question that has always bothered me on the realisim of the arrows of RTW system. Is it realistic damage wise? I mean in movies and history videos, you always see a side of a army firing a huge mass of arrows at the other side. Then once the arrows hit, they take out about maybe 50% of the unit in the first hit. Does this really happen or is it just some Hollywood BS to make the video more interesting and epic to watch?
In RTW and RS and other mods, you can have 20 units of fully upgraded strongest bowman..and shoot at a weak eastern infantry or peasant unit. And you would think that ammount would take the whole unit out because there is arrow about every 2 inches apart, but somehow the 3000-4000 arrows miss and only about 60% of the 1 unit is dead.
I know this probably has o do with "balancing the game" but they could have at least made it a little stronger.
