    See this for the past Civ5 elimination thread, and check out Forum Games for a lot more of them.

    Basically, each Unique Unit will start with the same number of points, then every time you vote (one time every 24 hours) you subtract 2 from one UU and give 1 to another. NO SPLITTING VOTES.

    The First List:
    Bowman 20
    Berserker 20
    Norwegian Ski Infantry 20
    Slinger 20
    Keshik 20
    Khan 20
    Maori Warrior 20
    Tercio 20
    Conquistador 20

    Final Results:
    1st- The Viking Berserker :trophy:
    2nd- The Mongolian Keshik :trophy2nd:
    3rd- The Mongolian Khan :trophy3rd:
    4th- The Spanish Conquistador
    5th- The Babylonian Bowman
    6th- The Viking Norwegian Ski Infantry
    7th- The Spanish Tercio
    8th- The Polynesian Maori Warrior
    9th- The Incan Slinger

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

    NOTE: See this thread for Vanilla UUs

    I love the Inca, and I do think the slinger isn't nearly as bad as people think (especially combined with the inca trait) but it's still pretty underwhelming. The keshik, on the other hand, oh my lordy.... (though khan has to be a pretty close second for being the only UU that's useful right throughout the game).

    I agree the Slinger isn't bad... and it's great once upgraded. It's just bad compared with every other unit on this small list.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the Inca (I have an unnatural affinity for the Terrance Farm). Their UA results in powerful economies. The Slinger though... It doesn't seem to retreat at an 80% rate. If it did... Also, being so weak, it'd be nice if they got +1 sight or something.

    I agree, they are fantastic once upgraded. They shouldn't cost as much as Archers, though.

    There's a trick to its withdrawal ability. Look at the direction the enemy is attacking from. Your unit will only retreat *away* from the direction of the attack. The 3 tiles in the opposite direction of the attack need to all be clear to have that 80% chance. If all of those are occupied or mountain or watertiles, the ability won't work period. If 1 or 2 are blocked, the ability still works, but not near as well as you'd expect from that 80% number.

    I love my Berserkers, but Keshik + Khan is just too good.

    Berserkers are just conquistadors with amphibious instead of +1 sight and without the ability to defensively embark and colonize overseas. Conquistadors are literally better in every other way.

    Except they die from the cheap Pikes, and if the AI do not have iron they will have a lots of pikes. Berserkers are very good, you might not played enough with them, since they are new.
