    Also, you won't have to pay for your Barracks once you get Sun-Tzu's. I prefer it, myself, though I play on Warlord, when the Computer is too stupid to use the units it gains from SoZ/KT effectively anyway. I don't go for many wonders anymore (yay! Off wonder-addiction!), but Sun-Tzu's is one I love, since I don't have to pay upkeep.

    I'd take Sun Tzu's over KT anyday, even on Sid! KT gets obsolete, but Sun Tzu's lasts.

    The crusaders aren't really that good because they only have one movement. I would take knights and ACs over them.

    But Crusaders do have more atk/def than ACs and knights. And they can build forts. They're a good unit to accompany a SoD. But otherwise, SoZ all the way.

    The best foot units in the medieval era (apart from berserks) ought to be supplied with better things to occupy their time than fort-building.
    They work very nicely piled into armies, allowing them to keep up with your knights, and negating the drawback that is their non-upgradeability.

    Yes, in armies is where they thrive (7/4/2 worst-case, 10/6/2 best-case), but I myself prefer knight armies for their speed.
