The war between Athens and Sparta in the V sec B.C. - SINGLE CAMPAIGN ONLY -
In Sparta the player is a just a man as many others in the mod. He will never become a superhero, but he can become a hero.
In this video I wish just to point out some movements that in this mod may be useful in a 1 vs 1 fight, being the spear combat something many players are not used to.
Behind your bronze shield (Hoplon) you are very safe, so take your time to choose the right moment when to hit. You have two kinds of hits: upper and normal (which uses both middle and low animations). You should use both in sequence. I find upper is very deadly combined to a fast movement to your right. Here the idea is to move, like you would probably do for real. To get the right distance from your enemy to assest a good bow, you must probably first push him backward with your shield, thend going backword yourself before hitting.
In the video there are just some examples, I bet with some exercise you can do better.
To train yourself the Arena is very useful. In the patch I am preparing, the chance to get a shield and to fight against men with shields are much higher on purpose.
When you are in battle something you learn in the arena may be useful, but in there you must stay in formation!
