I voted for neither, because there should be a third option: Remove cavalry for defenders, but allow attackers to have horses. Basically all negatives are related to defenders having horses, not attackers. The one positive related to cav in siege (i.e. tactical advantage of striking fast, surprising the enemy) is related to cav on the attacking team.

I agree with Gwairhir.  Allow Cav only for attacking team, And should be added as poll option.

What about when defending (horseless) cavalrymen get their hands on the abandoned horses of the attacking team...

@Nakki

1. The defenders would be vulnerable while looking for a horse. 2. The number of spare horses around will be low considering most mercs kill horses whenever they encounter them. 3. Most spare horses will be injured if their riders were killed. 4. Only the most desperate cav would bother.

I think cav for attackers only would be a good compromise, it is true that almost all of the negatives I listed mainly apply to defenders.

Only allow 1 cav during siege.

 

 

And it should be neon white and have a horn stuck in it.

Great, thanks for adding that option, I've changed my vote now.

 

Also if a player doesn't have any alternative account then he can still use his horseless cavalry character fairly well anyway. They can double up effectively as another class simply due to the nature of cavalry. In extreme cases there are always the default classes available.

So if cav gets removed, assasins should be able to steal more of my gold? Hell.Fucking.no. We don't need more useless players only intressted in getting gold running around. 

 

And about cav, with some adjusments I'd say they could stay. But as of now, no.

Useless?
I think assassins are more useful compared to colluding cav who forget to close the gate.

They can open gates or doors faster cause of agi builds (mostly), and you just say they are useless cause you either don't accept us or just hate guys who get gold faster.

And everyone in merc is interested in getting gold, not only assassins..

Remove cavalry for defenders and that's it.

Well done, you have proved that assassins are better than the worst thing in siege.

 

Too bad that only gets them the 2nd worst position in the rankings.

Exactly, do you all really want to hurt Shema? Could you live with yourselves if you knew you had upset him? You will have to look in the mirror every day, and what you will see looking back at you is a monster, for you have upset poor tiny little shema, who now has a little s at the start of his name, just to make it look even sadder :CCCCCCCCCCCCCC
