i think that swords will be just as goods and this will ruin any realisticness (if thats a word) in the combat of the game
I think this depends on how realistic they make the guns for that time period. As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, the first guns took a while to reload and were a lot of hassle to use. They probably were not too accurate either compared to modern guns. If a swordsman takes cover when their enemy fires a gun, then it makes sense that they could probably make up quite a bit of ground while the gun is being reloaded. This gives an advantage to the swordsman as once they are close, the sword will become very effective.
