Archers get jack shit for shooting at horses so they don't do it.
That would be a smart idea if cav just couldn't do a 360 turn on the spot and accelerate faster than a car in the other direction. Not to mention all the heavy lance BS that out ranges everything.
There are more ways for cav to kill 2 handers
Yeah, you can. But you can also get bumped and get hit anyways. Besides, most cav comes from the back or the side.
Care to explain what you mean by a backstep kill?
If you are not able to kill a cav its your problem , i can kill a cav with a long spear if you get outranged you do something wrong mate.
