    Hi, I recently bought the cgame and my question is that I can't figure out how to get my archers to attack an enemy unit once they use up all their arrows. The computer player does this with their archers so i figure tere must be a way. The documentation seemed innaccurate and wasen't very helpful. i have tried clicking on melee mode and skirmishmode but that doewen't seem to do much either. It may be obvious but I am not figuring it out.

    hi marco,

    you want to select your archer unit(s)...press alt and click on the enemy unit....usually you only want archer to flank in hand to hand combat...you do not want to face heads up with any other unit except guns in the rain.....hope i answer your question....

    High honour archers can also be used h2h to intimidate the lowest melee troops such as the Yari Ashigaru as long as there is a difference of 1 or more in honour and if the archers are charging down. Just try the first tutorial combat and you'll appreciate the h2h capability of the archers.

    yes archers are very useful against any kind of troops... u can make a wall with them when they are out of arrows to contain the enemy, not long but enough to make a FLANK manouver!
