(Besides you can just run em off with your own cavalry)

But sure, lets not continue this road as weve driven off

(I won like 1:5 and later 1:7 with some hoplites some light cavalry and 2/3 batts of archers like that, was a good game though:P) (yes vs NPC)
exactly, archers can be used to great effect to bait in other, stronger units, makeing archers effective, as bait, and they can really change the tide of battle in the begging
and what would solve this whole problem would be Horse archers, my favorite unit in rome total war (next to spartans)

my favorite units are and will always be the pikemen, they always makes sure the enemy dies a horrible death.

The reason i like pikemen is that i can turn the tide by my enemies sieging a town with two pikeman squads in my superior tactics is used to masterly put them in a v formation with the opening against the door and that causes insta routs and horrible slaughters. That is my reason for pikies

I see no reason to as why such unit cannot be modded by the community for use in custom scenarios .

The Rise of the Titans ;p, or gods maybe.

The thing is though, it would never degenerate into your first scenario, Supreme. Tactics would still evolve in rather the same fashion for the most part. You changed the composition of your force after I proposed a counter-strategy. RTS games are about evolving your tactics to fit your playstyle and units best.
