I know, falxmens are typical offensive unit but....they are worse than barb swordsmens. Stock units have more attack, okay but in items they are realy worse than other units. they need more +stats

falx are far better with arminius.

 

You need great mobility to flank,trap,  chase or desengage and the bonus in forest is insane

Only Vercingetorix and really high tier Boudicca can make falxmen viable enough but then again swords are that much better in most cases because idk why there's no difference in damage between the two units lol

 

With Arminius it's a pretty tricky situation because frenzy is only useful vs oath and when you engage units that are pulling out/routing. Momentum/infiltration help you choose your fights much easier but then again you don't have defiance or rebellion buffs.


pls buff pike surfing

falxmen are beast with arminius if played right. and you understand their strenght and weaknesses and how best use mobility and frenzy.

 

I dont even understand why anybody plays falxmen with vercingetorix as vercingetorix best skill is fire and fire is more powerful more units you have alive. So you want units like swordmen who have shields and better defence stats so you can stay alive to use fire in its most potent version as long as possible.

Both are great at high tier .  Falx  tougher to play because even more vulnerable to missiles, but that hamstring man...

Falx are great with both Vercingetorix and Arminius. It depends what sort of playstyle you want ... Arminius is far less tanky than Vercingetorix, but far more mobile. In both cases you have to use forest buffs to easier win an engagement. And it is not because you have fast units that you have to go in front line.

Arminius falx can chase and easily take down archers in good conditions (no other ranged focusing you) and sometimes some cavalries. You have to speed tank with them. And you can see them as a feet cavalry, faster in forest than most units.

Vercingetorix can resist and defeat some units with Iron Discipline and well played Defiance. Even if you dont have to tank with your falx, you can do it a little bit to delay the collapse of your side and let your team back to help or def. With Vercingetorix falx seem to me more versatile than with Arminius.

The main drawback of all barbs units is they are weak against ranged units at range.

 

But falx are really hard to play well and need some concentration and skills. I usually say that Falx are good against everything but everything can carve them up.

Well that result was done with tier 6 falxmen and most of other players were playing tier 7 units in that battle. :D Also I dont play arminius as my main commander its not high tier either.

Underpowered? Only Arminius and Boudica are good when the commander is high tier? LUL

Wanna learn how to play falxmen? My twitch channel is twitch.tv/baronnox

Tune in and see some awesome gameplay!

Sadly all my barb commanders are T10 now so I cant show u that even with T5 commander at T5 they do their job well enough.

his ulti is better with them, also they have a higher melee defense so iron discipline buff is higher with them.

Yeah and I have seen you playing them high tier manytimes and quite often with pretty good score. :D
