    Sory for being so late in my response, but in vacations I don't have Internet (It's 3€ per hour here in Algarve,can you believe it!).
    About the map...
    I usually play random, so I don't know the map this way. Inmy CIV1 times I got that habit because playing on Earth map (only one available) became to easy and boring. I think this is more fun, although a user created map seems to be more interesting some times, from the pics I have seen.

    And yes, Panzer has only 3 movement points and Rider ALREADY has 3 movement points. Opportunity makes a difference...

    I love those Panzers too :D, three movement does not only mean: Move thrice, but also if on railroad or road (in home territory) attack twice or even thrice. If you fight a defensive war (sounds strage, since it's an offensive unit), Panzers are one of the best units IMHO. Also, if fighting an aggressive war, they're good since the one extra movement really gives you an advantage over those lousy sherman-like tanks. Does anyone happen to know what the real historical unit for the "Panzer" was? Perhaps something like the Panzer IV or something...

    POanzers are the best, even though it takes long enough to get them, they make a big difference!

    Its not on the list but I like the Mounted Warriors best (not including PTW UU's). Out of the ones on the list I guess immortals, but I have never used Samurai - I bet those are good too. I like fast units, the ability to get places fast and then the retreat ability are great for fighting an 'efficient' war.

    War Elephant.. U don't need a resource and it can still be victorious in combat post Democracy when u really need that Golden Age.

    Immortals can just crush your opponents but u need Iron and a will to wage wars for domination before others get Feudalism or Chivalry.

    Immortals are by far the most useful. The beginning of the game is everything and with Immortals you are basically unstoppable for the Ancient era and the beginning of the Middle Ages.

    I do like the Samurais too.

    Why are some of you voting War Elephant? They're just Knights that don't require certain strategic resources that you'll most likely have anyway.

    I like the rider the best.... IMHO, can't beat that extra movememt point... But the immortals are cool too, especially on a small/tiny map where I can get conquest quickly.

    btw, Lynx, Dude, you're like, spamming... everywhere I look, theres a post of yours contributing like no information to the topic...
