I was thinking that it would be handy to have a list of the best units, building and traits on hand for those who want to experiance the best. Uh yah... SO I think we should organize it into three root groups, such as buildings, units, and traits.
Then we can add sub-groups, Like ranged, shock infantry,spear infantry, mounted.
Then we could add sub-sub-groups. Like slinger, skirmisher, archer, and mounted archer. I think this could be a great help in figuring out what faction you would want to try.

Base:
_____Units:
___________hvy. inf:
_____________________raw attack: Chosen Axemen (Germania)
_____________________javelin thrower: Urban Cohort (Rome)

_____________________best value for money: Urban Cohort (Rome)

_____________________Phlangite: Silver Shield Pikemen (The Seleucid Empire)
_____________________Non-phalanx Spearmen: Triarii (Rome)
_____________________over all: Spartan Hoplites (The Greek Cities)
_____________________best value for money: Phalanax Pikeman (Pontus)

Companions are overpriced and underperform. There's a reason seleucid players always pick cataphracts and not companions.

Spartans are far superior to silver shield pikes.


Seleucia does have the most most diverse selection of usefull units IMO. Catas, decent pikement, decent sword infantry (legions), elephants, scythed chariots...

I know that Spartans are considered the best phallanx inf. but it is also a matter of tactics, as i said i like the phallanxes with sarrissas just because of their length, it really is harder for the enemy to reach your lines.

The Companions after the 1.3 patch they are really good chargers.

As for my " Hellenistic nonsence " , Samari_tycoon , i have to remind that the game itself beggins in the Hellinistic period, so is RTW nonsence?

Besides i've never offended anyone in here, why do you. Maybe its your sence of hummor?

If you are joking just forget everything.

And what mod would that be?

Tactics don't change the fact that Spartans are the best infantry unit in the game.(Unless you take cost into consideration)

Right. You can't talk tactics when defining the best units. Sure, you can use tactics to make other units beat spartans, but you can also use tactics to make the spartans defeat them even worse. Tactics should not be part of this topic.
