    I don't know what the solution is, I just know what the result should be.

    Health nerf? Less men? Tiny melee attack but larger bonus vs cav? They all seem ok theoretically but I can't say what will fix them.

    Well it doesn't sound like there's a strong case that they are OP. Just the position that a unit which is intended as a melee unit and a capable anti-cav unit does one of the two a little too well.

    I mean its not like they are tagmata, or thracian nobles or anything like that. I don't see people bringing hordes of them in a langobard build. They are a problem for any cavalry action, sure, but it's not like they cant be countered in some meaningful way.

    For a thread that has reached 4 pages, there doesn't seem like anything new can be said about them.

    They arnt op, they do a job kill cav if they avoid getting charged. They die easily to Cav charges, missiles and elite infantry, they can hold their own against most medium infantry.

    I don't see them as an issue at all, the current meta on flanks where they are generally used is Heavy Cava;ry and 2handed Axes which is a combo that beat heavy Cavalry and Horse slayers 9/10 times.


    The main issue atm is some Heavy Cav and 2 handed Axes.

    Nerfing Horse slayers takes Langobards out the MP game as a viable faction. Ive not seen any Langobard armys winning any tournys yet, its all 2handed Axe factions.

    As Panda indicates above - this is an old thread and not relevant.

    The final nail in the idea that HS are OP is that nobody is bringing them in MP. Nuff said.
