View Full Version : Bionic Militia

4th Jun 2005, 21:54
Playing as France, I was attacked by a much larger army that was very heavy with militia. I decided to send my mounted dragoons out to harrass the militia and weaken them before they closed with my main body figuring that the cavalry could easily keep them at a distance.
Little did I know that militia running in their little wooden shoes are faster than any cavalry on earth. I tried this 3 times and each time the milita caught my cavalry and destroyed it. :eek:

I would submit that if a patch is ever prepared, that it should address this issue.
If anyone can explain how guys with wooden clubs and shoes can destroy cavalry, I would love to hear it.

see the thread titled "super thug battalions" in the community chat forum, there's been some complaints about this very issue. Hopefully they will alter their stats in a patch.

I was also annoyed when I was playing as the British, I commanded 4 full strength units of line infantry, I was on a ridge firing into the french militia, 2 units of french militia defeated my 4 units of Redcoats!

Form Square, and milita are useless. 18 milita vs. 3 Black Watch formed in square. Black Watch won.
