They should not be considered a low threat for anything but archers or javelin or slingers... My Tier VII swordsmen could not get behind them and were decimated by a single Tier V pikemen unit.

They are only low treat when in standard formation, while in Phalanx that's totally different story.

This has been an ongoing issue and the devs have incrementally adjusted various parameters to fix.  I notice they can now be routed if hit from behind occasionally, but as you say swordsman still can't out run their back peddle.  Which looking at reenactments on yt they can barely hold a pike much less maneuver in formation at speed, backwards, over uneven terrain.
