Hi

Going through the Greek campaign at the moment and took a look at their tech tree but why the hell would I want to build Greek hoplites (experience 1) when I could train Greek armored hoplites?

Training Cost, Upkeep, and the fact that you're unable to train Armored Hoplites for a good deal of time.

ok maybe a rough techtree will explain my point:

Militia barracks:
Militia hoplites

Barracks: (dont remember the name)
Militia hoplites
Hoplites

Barracks:
Militia hoplites
Hoplites
Armored hoplites

City Barracks:
Militia hoplites
Hoplites (Experience 1)
Armored hoplites
Spartan hoplites

but since you can only get spartan hoplites in sparta all the other cities can only build up to armored hoplites. So why would you want to build hoplites with 1 experience upgrade?

They're cheaper? Less upkeep?

The one experience isn't so that you prefer the Hoplites to the Armored Hoplites, it's so that you get your money's worth, since you went through all the trouble of upgrading your barracks to that level, you might as well get a better regular Hoplite if you choose to build hoplites.

correction, Syracuse can also provide you with spartan hoplites, plus some other city that i have forgotten the name of.

Any city can provide you with spartan hoplites. It just has to get a City Barracks....
