Thread: Melee cav now missile cav?

  1. #1

    Default Melee cav now missile cav?

    Came back to DEI after a few months, played a few custom battles to get into it. Playing as the Romans i noticed that cav units like ala batavorum which used to be kickass melee cav are now classed as missile cav, and are mediocre at best. Ala batavorum used to be a hard counter to most enemy cav units, now it can barely hold it's own against most enemy light cavalry.
    Is this a bug or a feature? What happened??

    They throw spears before engaging, they're still one of the best units available. It also helps making the AI actually engage the enemy with their cav. If you want to melee your enemies it's important to use the melee mode rather than just letting them attack since they'll try and use ranged attacks against them first in that case. Also, please use the questions sticky next time.

    oh right. Must've been using them the wrong way. What happened to their bad-ass face masks?
    also sorry, wasn't sure which thread to put this in
