Those elimination threads are one reason that I write this. Since most things on them are incorrect and only few reflects the real strength. Some elimination threads even end up in ridiculous results like "Adam Smith being better than Linus Crassus". For Nubia, a large fraction of Nubian archer's strength come from the +50% production bonus on ranged units UA. This shall not be taken into account since it is calculated separately and shall not be double-counted. BTW when you sum up these two you'll get as much point as Sumeria Warcart. Without it the UU looks not that good. 70 Prod for 30 strength, compared with War Cart's 55 prod 30 strength and no tech requirement. Yes ranged attacks have no counterback, but they're 13 strength weaker in defense, making them actually easier to die. Another advantage of warcart is that they upgrade into knights. Nubian archers don't have a good upgrade.
