These are two good games played online showing some strengths of the Briton Civilization. This shows the use of Briton archers early feudal and throughout. Massed Elite Longbowmen kick in and wins the game, especially in the Scream747 game. Enjoy and feel free to criticise.
Good recs, I didn't believe before that massed archers were better than massed skirmishers for feudal wars.
Although you lost the 2nd one by chance because your opponent ran out of gold, longbows are terrible vs Frankish paladins.

Thanks for the comment. :)
And by the way, I won both games including 2nd one. (you mistyped as 'lost' I think)
However, Elite Longbows + Halberdiers beat Frank Paladins + EThrowing Axemen.
Since Frank Elite Skirms miss out both attack and armor upgrades in Imperial, they need Onagers to counter FU Elbows (Halbs fend off Paladins nicely). But even then Elbows stand up decently (with 12 range when FU).
