I started playing Civ 5 (Gods & Kings) again after BNW was announced, and I noticed this little thing that I found somewhat lacking. That thing would be the Lancers sitting around doing mostly nothing because they're too weak to fight Gatling Guns, rifled infantry and cavalry, airplanes and whatnot. Even the first armored vehicle unit (The Landship) comes into play before the descendant of the Lancer comes along (The Anti-Tank Gun). So basically, the Lancer has to sit out through the Industrial and Modern Era before he can get upgraded to an Anti-Tank Gun. How about filling in the gap? Brave New World is due, and I'm wondering if we will see a new unit to end the Lancer's "I'm too old for this s*it" miseries and give the player and computer a bit more option. Do you agree that this time gap between the anti-cavalry units needs to be reduced? Do you have an idea for a unit that would work against both horses and steel? Do you have a work-around in mind? Discuss.
