    Korean UU, namely Hwacha is considered the worst in PTW because it can't start golden age. It's good battle support unit though (with 12 bombard strength), basically it's Artillery with lowered firepower and range, that's it.

    I will agree with the masses and say Saphai. Playing the Ottomans is a blast, the Saphai is the best attack unit before the invention of mobile warfare, hands down.

    After that I really like what they have done to the upgrade chain with Swordsman to Medieval Infantry to Guerilla and Longbowman to Guerilla. It makes archers and warriors good long term investments (if you change Guerilla to give it a movement of 2, a weak zone of control and a weak bombard [hit and run mortar attack]).

    I wouldn't diss the Hwach'a. You can get your GA from wonders, and its advantage over the regular Cannon is pretty hefty. I'd rate it above the Conquistador of the PTW units, and it definitely beats the F-15.

    I sure hope the barbarians are gone when these babys come onto the scene. Plus, it can defend itself, but with cavalry around the corner, they still do not need to be left in the open.
