    ... and it upgraded into a Knight.

    How this is remotely fair, I have no idea. It'll be fun though, chopping through AI warriors and archers with this beast.

    Not as bad as when you used to send a warrior island hopping and would up with a mechanized infantry before the AI had swordsman.

    Knight is the next unit on the Chariot Archer upgrade path - with one exception (Warriors > Spearmen), the ruins will give you the next upgrade your unit can have. The design flaw's not with the ruin, it's with the upgrade path - either they should have done what they did with crossbowmen, and added later ranged cavalry units, or the CA should upgrade into a Horseman.

    or it shouldn't get an upgrade ruin (simple unable to roll one, instead gets a random other one). just like you can not get any tech from a ruin past the 2nd row (calender, writing, etc).
