Camel Archer 1 lacking speed
Keshik 8 Speed and synergy
Camel Archer 1
Keshik 5 - Still requires resources, longbowman makes up for that
Longbowman 9 - Artillery so early is a godsend
Camel Archer 1 + 1 = 2
Longbowman 9 - 3 = 6
Camel Archer 2
Keshik 5+1=6best unit in the game
Longbowman 6-3=3keshik and camels are better
Camel Archer 2
Camel Archer 0
I prefer Keshik over Camel Archer, faster promotions more speed, and is made for a warmonger civ.
Keshik; the officially best Unique Unit in Sid Meier's Civilization V.
You just weren't good enough.
Keshik victorious! Well deserved, that truly is.
Camel deserved second spot too. Both are glorious units, but dat +50% XP generation (super fast +range/heal/+attack), more KHAAAANS combined with more movement...
Lil' victory dance.
keskiks got the win! I knew people would come to there senses and realize what these units can do for your bloodthirsty conquest.
The top four are so good I don't mind replaying (usually random roll) the Civs, game changing units, the lof them.
I almost gave up on this thread with all the negativity about the Keshiks and Mongols most on which seemed based in using them in the same way the AI does - in small numbers and staying around to get shot at.
Build them early and build as many as you can afford to maintain
That said the top 5 should enable most players to achieve a comfortable conquest of the world.
I never played the Mongols until I got them randomly in a MP game (still in progress) which gave me a reason to play them solo. When I move up a level they are my goto Civ. Currently I am playing a Barbarian Nightmare set-up (increased map size with the same number of AI and CS) with them.

Solid list, the top 4 unit could easily interchange due how close the voting was. That being said the Keshiks' are deserving of being the best unit in the game, the amount of bonus promotion they get in addition to having the left side of Honor open makes it possible in having a horde of level 9+ Keshiks and numerous khans. With all those promotions they retain their usefulness even when Cavalry comes along.
What surprised me:
Keshik winning, I thought it would be CKN/Longbows
War Chariot coming in last, I have never heard anything bad about it until now. Zero was what I expected.
it seems like a select few vote over and over, while some people vote one time or once a week
maybe can change criteria in future to have a lesser number of starting points, and limit of 3 votes over 3 days?
The vote was once per 24 hrs.
Gongratz, Keshik! It seems like one year didn't change anything and Keshiks won again. Impi fough well to 5th place against all 4 best ranged units, but ranged has clear advantage over melee.
Heyyyyy, the Keshiks made it!
I'm going to go ahead and say that I think the most overrated unit on the list is the winged hussar, the most underrated the battering ram.
The Battering Ram is certainly underrated (surprised it went as fast as it did...) but the Winged Hussar is far from being overrated - it's super powerful, moves faster, and even though it IS a lancer replacement you actually want to build 'em.
Seems like a pretty good list to me. I probably would have put the longbow at #1 because it upgrades to awesomeness on a tech tree you'll want to be going anyway, but I don't have enough experience warmongering to know for sure.
Congrats to the Keshik, without you the mongols would be by far the worst civ in the game. With you they are quite good. If this were a "Most Valuable Unit" thread, I would give it to you in a heartbeat.
I just noticed the unique great people weren't in the list (merchant of venice, Khan)
Were they left out for a reason?
