I cannot think or comprehend of anything more cucked than training spearmen. Honestly, think about it rationally. You are training, moving, and investing in a spearman for at least 80 turns solely so it can get ravaged by a bunch of heavy cavalry. All the hard work you put into your spearmen army - building barracks, upgrading their armor, making sure you had a balanced economy, conquering new settlements, marching into battle. All of it has one simple result: your army is more enjoyable for the cavalry that will eventually charge into it from every hole in your lines.
Built the perfect pike formation? Great. Who benefits? If you're lucky, a random cavalry spammer who had nothing to do with the way it formed, who charges into it. He gets to destroy its beautiful formations every night. He gets the benefits of its shiny and sweet experience that came from the way you trained it.
As a man who trains spearmen, you are LITERALLY dedicating at least 80 turns of your playtime simply to expand your army for another player to destroy. It is the ULTIMATE AND FINAL cuck. Think about it logically.
