    Keshik 23-KHAAAAAN! Untouchable, can be anything Longbow or CKN can be and more.
    Longbowman 23-Need spotters, and the way I play trade at this point is more profitable than war anyway. Not bad, just a little overrated.

    voted up the Impi. Maybe I'm biased because AI shaka always appears on your doorstep with 50 billion and 1 of these if you don't take him out early, and he seems to cheat (fire range attack on all units first before any melee? I can't figure out how to do this myself). These should be a template for melee units in the future.

    I voted down the Chu-Ko-Nu. I feel its running away a bit, I don't think its as good as the Keshik...

    Chu-Ko-Nu 29 The most fun unit of those left.
    Impi 7
    Keshik 17 Way outside my playstyle.

    Impi 4 Shaka's UA and the Ikanda make these guys what they are. I'd rather see a military CS with any of the other 4 units.
    Keshik 21 You only have a short window to use CAs and Keshiks before they become cavalry and the quick study and extra movement paired with the Kahns make it possible to get a lot more done in that window.

    Keshik 18 early doors great unit to come into play however I like to set up strong before attacking too early unit for myself
    Longbowman 20 out the door far better than chu once upgrades come into play

    Voting on the grounds that, even if it doesn't win, I still believe that Longbowman are at the very least the best Crossbow replacement in the game.

    Voting the Keshik up again because it's under attack by haters, whom I'm now officially denouncing. You guys are clearly not to be trusted.

    This unit is beyond badass. It's faster, gains XP 50% faster, generates Great Generals (KHAAAAAANs) faster... What's not to like? +1 more than well deserved.

    -1 off Longbowman. Chuky's get faster promotions IIRC, and they have the support of Chinese UA. Sooo, -3.

    Chu-Ko-Nu 26 + 1 = 27
    Impi 7
    Keshik 15
    Longbowman 18 - 3 = 15

    CKNs all the way!

    Why are Keshiks getting hammered? These guys are XP and GG generating machines (synergistic with Khans), and their mobility is all kinds of awesome.

    Sorry to all the longbowman fans, but they're just not as good as CKNs. CKNs get double XP with their two attacks (also synergistic with China's UA).

    IMO, the final order should be Keshiks, CKN, Camel Archer, Impi, Longbowmen.

    Impi 4 It's just the worst one left...
    Keshik 18 And the best one is right here.
