Default Elf Archer Spam Counter

Hey guys, I'm a human plains-region player. I've been having a LOT of trouble in pvp vs the standard 'lvl 5+ elven archer-only army' that just remains stationary in a corner.

I'm using fully upgraded lvl 5 mounted knights, some in loose some in diamond, with 35-45% piercing resist and around 844 hp. I will hit the elf-ball from 3 sides, and the archers in the middle melt the knights while the ones in melee hold the line.

I've had three battles like this. I only won one after my opponent foolishly moved forward and i charged before he could stop his archers. They then got the 'no firing' archery bug and my guys tore through them.


If mounted knights are supposed to be the supreme anti-archer unit for Humans, and I've upgraded them to be tanky and specifically resistant to archers, it makes very little sense that an equal number of similar level archers would beat them in melee.

5 points in resist pierce + loose formation=80% resist arrows. Thats like multiplying your health by 5. Do it, love it, kill archers with a smile. Also, using the heal button right as you get into range helps. But equal armies MK vs Ranger, if MK's have max resist peirce and are in loose, they will massacre the rangers.

I'd also suggest continuing to charge your knights back and forth across his troops to get the bonus of your formation in diamond. Dragon/treb fireballs would also be very efffective in that situation.

If you are running into that kind of situation where they only have one class. They are I'm sure singled minded. Also consider this using a soak unit, to get your real damage into the fight. Either that or use siege until you force them out of the corner.
