Default How to counter army of knights?

So i had 211 troops in castle (some melee, some archer, 2 trebs) and attacking player had 400+ of all knights, no siege stuff.

I thought 'All knights? how they gonna get thru my gate? Anyway they did.

My question is: Can a huge stream of knights just batter their way through a gate? cos my archers ran out of arrows so a mixed army seems pointless.

Should I have just trained lots of knights and not bothered with archers/crossbows cos his numbers of knights just soaked up arrow stores.

How do you defend against an army like that just after the safe time has ended? Btw some of my troops had been trained at nearby town to lv5 - does that make difference in PvP balance calculation?

Hello,

The cheapest human unit - maceman - kills heavy armored units like Knights and Swordsman. Maceman has a Crash damage with his mace - and Knights and Swordsman can have 80% of arrow armour, but 0 crash armour.

For town defense I like to keep a lot of archers to take care of light armored units and enemy archers, and maceman to take out any heavy armour units.

Also if enemy brings Mounted units - mounted knights e.t.c - you`ll need Halberdiers - they are absolutely deadly to the mounted knights

Another good advise - as soon as your archers gain a level or two, spend all the skill points on the Ammo.

And yeah - the higher level your troops are - the higher your army strength gets.

If your Defending a Town dont Forget to use Defensive measures
Knights are slow
Pour some Oil down the Gate and you kill tons of enemy in one hit


But in the First Place
Archers are good enough to kill massive Knight Army

But current Pathfinding is Bugged
you need to have ALL Gates closed BEFORE he orders his Units to move

If he orders the Units to Move they will go where they have been ordered
no matter if the Gate got Closed before they arrived or not



Of course having some Knights yourself is never a Bad Idea
they are very Strong Infantry Unit
