Since neither shot nor pike have any reaction to being charged, and cavalry can choose to charge anyone in range, how can the pike unit protect the shot?
I mean, I sorta don't mind if pikes have a diminished role at this level of representation, since they were rarely dispatched for small unit actions. Forces represented at this level would most likely consist of all cavalry or a combination of horse and shot. You might run into pikes in more of a defensive role. We have some ideas about that, but thought I would learn what more experienced players have seen over many games.
