Yeah, a lot of people ask me "do the falling arrows even have enough force to kill people?". Of course, the arrows only need to penetrate horse hair+skin. And yes, I forgot about the point of the knights not being able to stand up

And again, the real problem was to USE a longbow you needed a lifetime of training or you'd get maybe a few weak shots off before being exhausted. I've used a real longbow, not a compound bow.. I can fully appreciate why the skeletons of Longbowman showed signs of one arm being significantly larger than the other lol.
Same, I've used one, it's such a difference in pulling strength required! It really does make you appreciate that archers had a heck of a lot of work to do.

Question: When you are upgrading the palisade walls to heavy, do you do it a section at a time or does the whole wall upgrade to heavy?

Thanks

From the look of things, I'd say that you upgrade the entire wall, but the construction does it a section or two at a time.

Sounds like a lot of fun to watch graphix on a wall going up. I can't wait. If you task more vills to it does it upgrade faster? IE complete building sections faster?

Longbows are slated as a unit in DoF right now - I think. A question is - should they? I think they would end up somehting like this -

Longbowmen -

Very long training time
very far range of sight [still only able to fire en mass at that range]
suicididly powerful at close rage [read a book on Agincourt if you disagree]
not too expensive
rapid rate of fire [a tad slower than normal archers]

**of course, at close range crossbows were suicidal too - except longbows fire a lot faster**

Another thing - Will archers fire faster as their targets get closer?

I don't see why they would. The draw rate should be the same, realistically that is.

Thanks
