Anyway, I've gotten good at getting a balanced army of Champions, paladins and Conqs (though as the battle goes on, I usually fall behind in conqs as i can't keep up the production as easily as champions/paladins), but someone I regularly play with has a tactic which constantly destroys me- Samurai and Halberders. I heard that samurai are meant to be weak overall, but try telling that to the piles of dead champions that litter the floor after any battle with them. It seems like if i send equal amounts of champs at his samurai, samurai always win. Am I just imagining this?
My first reaction was to churn out paladins, as i was pretty sure paladins would be able to own them, but his halberders, which are usually mixed into the same group as the samurai, weren't having any of it and pretty much destroyed my paladins in seconds.
Long story short, I'm asking how best to counter Halberders and Samurai with the Spanish.
Of course Samurai will beat Champions 1v1, but not by much. First off his infantry attack 25% faster than your's. Secondly, they have more life. Sure they have 1 less attack than the champion, but the faster attack speed (especially in mass) will roll a group of champions.
Anyways, archers/seige will take down a heavy infantry group.
Not as in "MUHAHAHAHA" crazy, more like "AAAAAHHHHH TEH PICKELZ ARE TRYING 2 KEEL MEH" crazy. Twilightfan
