Silver Shield Duel

Recommended Posts

So.....I pitted Seleucid SS against Macedonian Hypapists with the SS upgrade......

 

And the Macedonians won...... What!?!

 

Just for future note, which do you guys think would win realistically?  

Macedonian Hoplite SS,

Seleucid Pike SS.

The sarissa is only good in mass combat*. I would make wager the Macedonian hoplite-armed SS would win handily in a 1-1 duel in real life.

 

*This give me idea of Pikeman having a short distance aura that gives other pikemen a boost.

It depends on the general behind either side. Sorry, I couldn't resist.:victory:

a guy's gotta be confident going into a duel with a pike and a tiny shield

Yeah... Without formations this was a mute point, but it was 30 vs 30

It's yet done in the 'main' game.

I'm thinking about making a new x3 damage weakness system in the next versions of my mod:

For what I'm thinking right now, pikes got a great range so they could have an even bigger buff against cavalry (x6 or less unlike the x3 of spears). But since their shields are tiny because in history they had to put the shields at their back to operate the pike properly, they'ld be way weaker to arrows, like also a x6 weakness to arrows. I'll have to think about it :)
