A polearm is in the first place a defensive weapon. It's mostly used in the 
way to keep your opponent at a distance and to hit or to stab him when he 
comes in reach (although stabbing isn't liked to be seen on most cons, 
because of the high danger of injuries). A polearm is much more difficult to 
handle than for example a sword. On the other hand it is also very confusing 
for most players fighting with a sword against someone with a polearm. 
Therefore a polearm can be a very strong weapon if you're used to handle it.
