ANALYSIS

15th) {last) on the poll} Avenger - needs better graphics
14th) Wadjet - needs publicity. I don't even know what it is

13th) Scarab - way down on the poll probably because people saw him got squished by two Minotaurs in the Jan/14 Screenshot. ROTFL. Perhaps ES could make a Scarab God Power that would unleash bug sized ones like in the movie The Mummy. That would be pretty radical
12th) Mountain Giant - he's down on the poll, and that might have to do with his having no special ability we have seen, yet.

11th) Chimera - needs some publicity and better graphics
10th) Colossus - This guy rocks when he used to fight with his clenched fists! He looked much more devastating, until he got the swords...which make him look so clumsy.

9th) Mummyhaven’t seen him in a SS before. The only reason he got a couple of votes might have to do with The Mummy Returns movie . Other than that I don’t see why.
8th) Medusashe will rock da house!

7th) Frost Giantthis guy looks pretty cool! Yeah he is cool, too , but he’s way too slow in the ES movie, and seems to be an ineffective myth unit. He takes way too long to freeze even a foot soldier. I’d say make him freeze faster, or players will just put him next to their sheep and boars to keep them from rotting.
6th) Fire Giant - He looked messed up after they gave him plastic surgery . He used to look pretty dang 'hot'

5th) Cyclopsawesome finishing move, although it’s could be quite inefficient, since he takes too long to execute it. Definitely needs some improvement there, otherwise he would just be a trophy fighter.
4th) Minotaurlooks good, and fights even better. He will be one of the most popular units, without a doubt!

3rd) Valkyriehmm…I don’t know what this unit is . It must look pretty cool to get this much votes
2nd) Phoenixdazzling unit. Don’t see it needs any improvement

and the current leader is…

1st) Anubitewas there any doubt that this guy will get the most votes? How about The Mummy Returns movie and awesome fighting skills in the ES movie, for starter?! Personally, I think the Anubis would look much better if they give him more of a jackal look by giving him longer fangs and adding more hair and muscles. (Just a little curious, shouldn’t ES call them “Anubis”, instead of Anubite, with “ite”)?

Who will win in the battle of "the most favorite mythological units"? Stay tuned and find out!

as far as i recall anubis is a god, so they called it anubite, which is basicly a unit that looks like the anubis

i think

Hopefully this poll is a list of all the units in AOM, even thought it says "mythological characters" not units. I personally would want to see valkyries make it in the final version of AOM, but the wadjet (or how ever it's spelled) from one of L_K's old posts intrigues me.

I am very surprised to see the Avenger in last place, because at the time of the AusGamer videos, it was very popular. The Chimera fire breath attack looks sweet, and now all 3 cultures have a fire unit:
Norse: Fire Giant (duh)
Greek: Chimera
Egyptian:Pheonix

Why is that Smileyshelper? Because I hope that the Norse will get the sweet valkyries added to their list of MUs? Norse valkyries, if included, could be my new favorite unit.

They cant call it Anubis, becuase Anubis is a god, and those mythological units are servants of Anubis, not Anubis himself. Thus "Anubite".

Good post, Immhotep

Maybe the avenger got the last place because it's close-up graphics (in the screenshots page) don't make him look good, and it's the animation that counts. Also the fact ES released so little info about that "mythologically-unknown unit" made him disadvantaged.

I woted for the Phoenix, it looked amazing in the aus videos.

Comments:

- Anubite is still in 1st place
- Phoenix has jumped from 3rd to 2nd place! (Good news for Phoenix's fans . Bad new for Pegasus' fans...oh wait a minute...pegasus is not on the poll! (?))

- Fire giant has jumped up 2 spots to 6th place! (This guy is still hot )
- I forgot which units moved down, hehe. I only kept track of the ones that moved up. Well...doesn't make any difference heh .

Ok enough for now. I'll update the list as more changes take place. Laters .
