This thread ain't about strength, it's about blandness. The Maori bonus is very nice in combination with the 10% bonus near maoi, giving you a "Spirit of Adwa" style homeland defense bonus (-10% enemies +10% your units= 20% disparity) and this is only exacerbated later on when unit strengths are higher, thus they lose more. As for blandest, I vote other. Bowman. You will NEVER get to use this unit in time to do anything but some light barb hunting. Bland.
