I'm asking your opinion of whether you guys prefer going for grenadiers or riflemen first? I think with Warlords, going for Grenadiers was a sensible choice, one tech away from musketmen, (gunpower - chemistry), but with BTS needing a couple of techs in either path it's open to debate. Personally, I think the 50% bonus vs riflemen for grenadiers is huge when the AI likes riflemen and in my experience tends to go for them first, so I go for grenadiers. As a base 12 str unit they are still strong enough to tackle anything else out there at the time, be it musketmen, macemen, knights, elephants, curaissiers etc, and although riflemen are useful vs mounted units, I've found pikemen still to be good enough until I've got riflemen. But I suppose in contrast is the fact that the grenadier tech, military science, is a dead end, whereas rifling, with replaceable parts before it, and printing press are all good techs to get with general benefits elsewhere for the Civ in general, and is part of a path for better things leading to industrialism. So what are your thoughts?
