In AOK, I mostly found myself creating Arbalests and Paladins to attack the enemy.The problem with AOK infantry is that they're to slow and weak.

Lately, in alot of AOM ss's, we have seen alot of infantry.Does this mean footman are stronger?

Um...AoK's Infantry were by no means weak. They were balanced very well...far more often do I see a player using Champions and Halberds than a player using Paladins or Arbs, since they are infinitely more practical and easier to amass.

If you're going to turtle the entire game and build up for an hour before attacking, sure you mightn't favour infantry, but in a more general game, they're fine.

Champions in Imperial are the best unit hands down.. think about it..

Gold will naturally be what the main battles are fought over because most important things you need (trebuchets, Units) cost a lot as well as all the blacksmith upgrades and techs you would want.
To counter a champion a player would use arbalests but as 45 gold a piece combined with 25 i think of wood you'll run down your gold so much quicker.. think about it it costs 1 arbalest the same as 2 and a half champions gold wise, food is easy to gain in the form of farms. Just thought I'd remind you .

Dear god, Infantry are far and away the most used units in Imperial Age. Champions ownz cost efectively (especially from the POV that all their counter's cost lots of gold).

I agree with TSD.

AoM will be a ballanced game, so you won't find infantry too weak. Of-course if you learn to use it right, and in hope they don't meet avengers .

Anyhow, I don't think the weekly scrnshots can teach us about how the game will be played. After all, most the AoK early screenshots were describing classic medieval battles, which are different from how the game is really played...

When playing a game set in the medieval time period, the typical gamer would expect to see a lot of knights on the battlefield. Thus, we really did not want cavalry in AOK to be too weak.

AOM's bizarre time period, on the other hand, doesn't lend itself well to dominance by a particular unit line, though we know the Greek hoplites decimated horses for hundreds of years.

Infantry is the main part of any army...

also..AoK infantry was excellent...

starting with the M@A to the Champs..the best and reliable unit

Evil things are afoot.

Actually not really. I have no idea what happened to the user, though if you click profile, it says info unavailable. Maybe the account's been deleted, but I can't actually see why that would happen.

As for the other question, yeah sometimes threads are deleted, typically though only if it's offensive, it's going to go straight into a flame war, or if it's way outside forum scope. (Remember, if you're ever wondering about moderator actions, please don't hesistate to talk to me, THS or Thunder. )
