I was playing Aztecs and I noticed their coyote guys seemed to fill the role of cavalry but a few things have be confused...

Pikes seems to get a bonus against them now as they are light infantry but do they get countered by dragoons like other cavalry or is it only other heavy infantry...

Why did ES feel the need to redefine an entire set of units simply for a couple of guys. Am I the only one who thinks this was retarded...?

No.

What I've understood is that they act just like cavalry, all units that counter Cavalry also counter them, but have a lower multipler (it seems to be about 2/3 of their multiplier vs cavalry). Looking at MNbob chart, Dragoons get 2.75x Coyote dudes, which is more than 2 thirds... Guess Dragoons are one of the best counter for those guys then.

Quoted from somme:

Yes. You are.

I think it's great that they did us this favor. It used to be that you always had to type out "light infantry", which is 2 words. Who likes to type out 2 whole words? Nobody. So, now we only have to do that for a couple of units.

Xbows, skirms, and other ex-light infantry can now be referred to as NOT-Light-Infantry-But-Also-NOT-Heavy-Infantry, more commonly known as NOTLIBANOTHI. See? Only one word. Much easier!

Who feels retarded now? The revised definitions are awesome!!...(oops, need more emphasis).....ARE AWESOME!!!
