 i wanted to make for a while but i will admit, pikes are a tough unit simply because of how different they are. With the changes since the steam beta has emphasized it and i think pikes, as it stands now minus the instant pike drop are the most balanced unit out there. This one has 2 parts. Part 1 is tutorial on how to hold a position and how to fight using the pikes. Part 2 is on how things can play out on the same map.

Great tutorial, Arclinon. As a new player I found it quite helpful. I'm currently at tier IV units myself with a few commanders. I'm excited to try out Pikeman after seeing this.  

One question I do have though.. how do you set the width of your formation? I seem to only ever be able to set the direction... 
EDIT: Literally just saw the tutorial on how to do this. :teethhappy:

Glad you like it. Yeah, i made tutorial on formations earlier with pikes. Pikes are a very hard unit to play just make sure to march through your enemy and stop instead of giving attack order.
