archers would do reasonable damage? does this mean you think the pikeman would be able to use this specialty even against ranged attacks?
well, i can see being able to use it against melee, but ranged seems too powerful.

I mean that archers would still be effective against Pikeman, because you can't use First Strike against long range attacks when you don't have a long-range attack yourself!

It seems to me that first strike would be a special associated with a particular attack. So, you could have a unit with a first strike ranged attack, but not a first strike melee attack and versa-visa.
