Thread: Hoplites in TE

    Default Hoplites in TE

    I've just got a few questions about hoplites.....

    Firstly, do hoplites in the phalanx formation get a bonus against cavalry? I'm not sure but I believe they do.

    Second, do the Greek hoplites in TE get this bonus? Or do they lose it because they now use the overarm formation? Mind you, I love this overarm formation, so much more flexible.

    Thanks!

    Spearmen have a bouns against cavalry in TE too. They are not as effective as without the overhand animation, but that's more realistic, since Greek Hoplites didn't use the phalanx formation in RTW, but only Pikemen with long pikes did (Macedonian Pikemen, e.g)

    It's not as lethal anymore. Harder for them to defend themselfs too.

    And Phalanx vs Cavarly means loss for Cavarly, but some experienced Generals can survive it in a way...

    Spartans used phalanx formation as well (they invented it), here they don't however.
