Computer Games - Slingers vs. Archers
May 8th, 2004 at 5:28pm
 
hey guys and gals
i was just sitting here reading some posts and i thought of this coolieo (my word for very cool) idea.  I have a game called Age of Mythology.  I dont know if anyone also has this game but i was gonna make a simulation of and army of slingers and an army of archers and i will see which wins to see the historical accuracy of the game.  Ill update on the result in like an hour.

LOL!

"historical accuracy" might be stretching it a bit for a game that focusses on mythical beasts and god powers. + in the game (as in real life) slingers are cheaper to produce and faster to train. Looks like you need about 29 slingers for your 20 archers.

Interesting though that slingers slightly outrange the archers...

I have the game, and believe it or not, the Slingers are cheapear and beat the archers 1 on 1 or in goups. The slinger are specially to use against archers because they hit them and the archers loose the accuaracy.

They also beat the Chariot Archers, the best archers in the history and they cost almost the double.

And don't think AoM is only based on mythological beasts, they do also make the army really realistic.

I did a similar thing with Empire Earth.  The slingers were not at all effective, and were decimated by the archers.  I did various scenarios; one on one, groups of ten on ten, ten on one, etc.  Slingers were beaten every time, every by "Simple Bowmen", the worst archers.

  There is a "Roman" based PC strategy game called"Praetorians" which gives you command of units of Balearic Slingers who are very effective against archers (and just  about anyone else for that matter). The game is published by Eidos.

Smiley If anybody has empire earth, my screen name is "bobjoey2003" and I'll be happy to play you.

We can even make a rule that you can't upgrade at your archery range so we have slingers the whole game  Wink
