F3+F3 Loose Formation:

Allows for archers to spread apart and not blocking each others Line of Fire.


To split them into groups so they can shoot enemies in the flanks while your infantry engages/ Also helps if you have a large number of archers and want 100 rate of fire efficiency.


Plays a big part in winning a battle as having a hill or elevated terrain gives you a big advantage as it allows for a platform for your archers to shoot from with more accuracy and range.

Placing infantry in rivers and archers on the flanks is pretty much gg , slow moving infantry+ archers shooting into the flanks= GG.


Split archers into two groups use one to skirmish the enemy line and the other supporting your infantry on the flanks / on a hill.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
