Topic Subject:In what context should Atlantis use Murmillos over Katapeltes?

... And... For that matter... How do I delete my old threads?

I ORIGINALLY wanted to make a thread asking this, but as I was making the thread, there were some... Family issues, which kept disrupting my concentration and I somehow completely jumbled up the units names, making me seem like either a troll or total idiot :/. I already edited the actual original post, but I have no clue of how to edit the title. Or just erase the thread and use this one as the new one for the discussion.

But, on all seriousness: In what context should Atlantis use Murmillos over Katapeltes? To... Remake, my original post in the old thread, but now with the corrected names: "From my perspective, the Murmillos much higher speed and significantly higher basic Attack makes it a much better unit for raiding, even able to outpower other anti-cavalry units such as Spearman and Ulfsarks without the God upgrades. Much like the Hoplite, except it can actually chase down its targets. Retroactivelly, the Katapeltes is more of a specialized cavalry counter which is exceptionally good at guarding Cheiroballistas( Never forget Cheiroballistas have a high pierce armor that surprisingly lets then tackle archers on relatively equal footing despite their low basic Attack, and since anti-archer archers are arguably a -Worst-Pick against then, as they are not technically classified as archers, this means cavalry is usually the only true counter to then. )"

consider the buildings also

you need non specialised units for non specialized matters, such as attacking a city or make the most part of your army to attack everything while beginning a battle

remember also that katapelts do have a big bonus against siege units, but they have a too bad pierce armor and speed to take out catapults for exemple (if they are decently protected), it's the same problem with egyptians (prodromos superiority ;'p)

katepeltes loses to an unupgraded ulfsark - the question should be, in what context to use katepeltes over murmillos - and the answer to that, specifically vs cavalry and siege only
