|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Pikemen are the standard Heavy Infantry of the Medieval Age. They are strong vs. Cavalry but weak vs. Foot Archers and Gunpowder Infantry. Pikemen units can also be used somewhat effectively against buildings, if Artillery Weapons are not available, but Large Cities of the Medieval Age tend to offer decent protection against them. They are trained and upgraded at the Barracks.
Production cost for this unit increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. However, the maximum cost for Pikemen is capped at 112 Food / 67 Metal. Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
