Why skirmishers don't perform ranged attacks in ranged phase?

In DasTactic Challenge video, the first battle ends in draw. Then, the remaining forces continue with a new battle (this time DasTactic has some velites reinforments) but, in the ranged phase, no enemy senones unit uses ranged weapons, even being skirmishers some of them (I see at least 4 urban militia units and 1 cavarly unit). Is this normal?

those aren't skirmishers ... . One of the upcoming dev diaries will be on the Empires combat system and that should make stuff like ranged fire/skirmishers and support units much clearer.

In the first battle (that ended in draw) the 4 urban militia units threw ranged weapons, hence the confusion. Anyway, nice to hear that there will be a devdiary explaining combat.
