Having been playing this game for years now, it strikes me there are several units that are avilable to all Civ's on completion of a certain research, that really, shouldnt be globally avilable units at all. One such unit is the Longbowman... Given that the Longbowman is widely though to be of Welsh-English origin, first seen in use by the Welsh during the Norman English invasion of Wales, and adopted by the English upon witnessing its huge range. King Edward I (1272–1307) ensured the Longbow was adapted into the English armies of the early Medival era. By the late Medival era it had risen to prominence as a defining unit of the English army, helping earn victory at the battles of Crécy in 1346, Poitiers in 1356, and most famously Henry V's victory at the battle of Agincourt in 1415. Although the Longbow was occasionally seen in use by other European armies, it was more common place to see standard Bow's, Crossbows or the Arbalest Crossbow than a Longbow making it a defining English weapon of the era. The French were known during this period for thier Heavily Armoured Knights, who trounced the far inferior English Knights during the Battle of Hastings. So how come every Civ is instanly granted the use of what used to be a UU to the English Empire in previous games? (by the way i know there are other units which are non-Civ specific which could also be used as examples, i just chose the Longbowman as an example) Should there be a way forward for Civ's to have 2 Unique Units?? For instance, why have the Aztecs got the Jaguar Warrior as a UU and not the Eagle Warrior too? The French should have Heavily Armoured Cavalry as well as Musketeers. I think a two UU system would help sharpen the game. Thoughts?
