But – it`s not all that full-proof. A moment before cavalry would reach archers – archers can fire a volley of arrows which will be pretty deadly and destroy the front row of charging horseman - of-course archers are screwed after.
Will the second row of cavalry fall over the first?

Bodies having a collision radius is going a bit too far, I think. Would make managing a battle hellish...

Dead bodies do not have collision, you can still loot them for resources though.
We can not have collision in dead bodies for gameplay reasons, what if you have 4 huge dead ogres in the gatehouse and nobody can get past? pretty much any bottleneck in the game would become an impassible area leaving frustration to the player(s).


In real life, some of the Dressage of horses originated from the medevil times as training for horses to get over and through obstacles like dead bodies and sharp objects like swords and wooden spikes or anything really, something like a Piaffe but very high up and moving fast.

I am not sure about friendly fire, Kon will have to answer that, But right now, there isn't friendly fire.

they would need a system like total war and i don't think the bows in dof reach far enough for them to even be used often outside siege battles if there was friendly fire

Your cavalry is great against archers
Uhhmm... ever heard of the Battle of Agincourt (I hope I spelled that correctly)? Those French cavalry got massacred by the English longbowmen.

Not if they were in proper formation and the pikemen were kneeling (the proper position to be in when wielding a pike against a cavalry charge).
