Vlandian arbalests do pretty well against the khuzaits, you should try them... You do need like 70 of them to get the full effect.Very informative post thanks.
Of course i did not refer to the technology of the Khuzait, it was merely when fighting against them, i think the other factions with huge economies like Vlandian and The Empire have no way to counter Khuzait, their high tier infantry and archers just doesn't do it. They are good though fighting other infantry, but against Khuzait they have nothing, Khuzait is pretty much strong on all fronts, specially mounted and from range and their spearmen is not half bad either, not to mention the Noble Son's troops like Quangli. Unit wise they are the strongest in the game overall.
You need to open a history book. 1st grade for starters, Normans were the first to use couched lance against the Byzantines in 1060 - 1071and they were heavily armoured. What tactics they used in the battle of hastings is irrelevant.Your level of ignorance is mind boggling. Do you get your historical knowledge from films and tv? If you know anything about the battle of Hastings you would know that the Norman knights were skirmishers. Light cavalry in game. They did not charge they harassed until the Saxon formation broke and gave up the high ground. The heavy cavalry in game are more like those used during the 100 years war such as at the battle of agincourt, 14th century. lmfao
Man your historical knowledge is subpar to say the least... Longbows existed well before year 1000. What do you mean by plate? If plate armour then i dont see that in the game, only maille, lamellar. The game is definitely not set in 1400 to 1500 lol what the hell... And normans used heavy mailed knight with a lance and they existed during the year 1000.Get the dates out of your head. This is not 1000 or even 1200. Plate did not exist in 1000. Neither did knights with lances. The longbow hadn't even been invented! The technology is the high middle ages 15th 16th century. The game is, lets put all these factions loosley based on reality and put them together with similar levels of technology. Historical accuracy goes out of the window at that point.
I showed you a screen shot of the south western map below the Aserai....
Lol lamellar was not fantasy and existed well into the 1400s and the weapons are realistic enough to the time period it is set in, with a few exceptions like vlandian full face helmets and mamluke armor.The arms and armour are most definitely not 600-1100. Not even remotely. Not one single faction is historically accurate for any time period where they all existed together. They have improved the tech of some factions. Celts & Vikings. Downgraded the tech of others. There's no cannons or basic firearms which existed at the same time as heavy plate. Lamellar armour is mostly fantasy unless you go back to something like ancient Persia. Leather armour is fantasy There really is no valid argument for historicity when we have so many anachronisms.
The map is big enough..
