This thread is moderator approved.

Since the Music Theme Elimination Thread is now finished, I've decided to open another elimination thread. This time, the topic are unique units.

If there is a leader's name with Civ name in the bracket, it means that the unit is unique to the leader of the civ and comes as part of his unique ability.

Rules:
- Only strength of units/usefulness is compared. This also includes, range, cost of the units, availability and whether it can evolve from earlier units/to later units.
- Vote roughly once per 24 hours. Voting significantly earlier must be explained.
- Add one point, take away three points.
- You must give a reason. Posts without reason will not be counted until a reason will be added.
- Voting for the same unit several times in a row is not forbidden.

Rankings:
1. Pítati Archer (Nubia) :trophy:
2. War-Cart (Sumer) :trophy2nd:
3. Hetairoi (Macedon/Alexander) :trophy3rd:

I played Brazil recently on a shuffle map (not even that water heavy) and on standard speed and size won a domination victory almost entirely with this unit. I was really blown away by the Minas Geraes' sheer power.

I've literally never built an aerodrome and the P51 Mustang sure isn't going to convince me to start now.

I up-voted the legion because it's one of the strongest and (imho) most interesting units. I rarely use forts even though I'm always looking for good places, but their ability to repair tiles and chop in reinforcements (right at the front lines!) makes them genuinely scary. I down voted the horse archer because it has a range of 1 and doesn't upgrade until field cannons. Sure, you get two for the price of one but they're hard to keep alive and they have a very narrow window of usefulness.

The Varu were amazing on my Chandragupta play through and had serious longevity. Air units just don't seem worth the effort in VI, sorry Mustang.

Eagle Warrior (Aztec) - 21 = 20 + 1. There are 3 reasons why this is so overpowered. 1) Its freaking strong. 2) It come in the early game when war is it's most advantageous. 3) Free workers more than makes up for the extra production cost

Eagle Warrior (Aztec) - 22= 21 + 1. Agreed completely with Benito on this, free workers are great! Even if this didn't implicitly come with the Aztec's ability to spend those workers on districts it would still be fantastic.

P-51 Mustang (America) - 11 = (14-3) This shouldn't be up for debate, this must be eliminated first. Worst unit by far. In a game where the AI doesn't use air units, who needs a fighter? Who needs to waste a special unit slot on a unique fighter? I guess they had to do something to turn down Teddy's raw awesomeness though.

Where is the crouching tiger hidden cannon from China? Or was it eliminated from the outset because it's so bad?

Maryannu Chariot Archer (Egypt) - 17 = 20 - 3 Crap units like the Berserker and P51 you can simply avoid altogether. The Chariot archer blocks one from performing the most efficient and devastating assault in the game. They're also very expensive for something that upgrades to Crossbowmen. Too bad because functionally they're pretty good in open terrain.

War-Cart (Sumer) - 21 = 20 + 1 I'll just go ahead and kick this off. Mysteriously doesn't replace the Heavy Chariot on the tech tree. It's available turn 1 with 1 extra movement, stronger melee combat, no maintenance cost, and lacks a counter unit. 'Nuff said.

My, apologies, I must have overlooked it. Please, can the next voter add Crouching Tiger (China) to the list?

I just copied The Highwayman's reasons, because they are spot-on.

Berserker (Norway) - 20
Conquistador (Spain) - 21 (20+1...They look cool, they have a plus 22 strength against musket men when used with religious unit, Spains ability and the wars of religion policy. They have a long life starting from Renaissance right through to end game. They are perfect for Spains religion / domination play style.

Garde Imperiale (France) - 20
Hetairoi (Macedon/Alexander) - 20
Highlander (Scotland) - 17 (20-3..I wanted this to be a Medieval unit and one of my favourites. It's a recon unit that arrives too late in the game. Its too late for musket men and can't fight infantry. Doesn't effect gameplay but they also look like part of the British army in the 19th century and don't look uniquely Scottish to me.

By the way if you like unique units I strongly recommend the Steel and Thunder mods. Every Civ gets one extra unique unit and there are also additional units in the Tech Tree.

Hoplite (Greece) - 20
Hwacha (Korea) - 21 (20+1) There are a lot of good units in this game, and the Hwacha stands among them. It arrives at a reasonable time in the tech tree, and is strong enough to take down units and cities with respectable power.

Immortal (Persia) - 20
Impi (Zulu) - 20
Jong (Indonesia) - 21
Keshig (Mongolia) - 20
Khevsur (Georgia) - 17 (20-3) I defended Georgia's music to the bitter end in the last thread, but I cannot do the same here. The Khevsur arrives at an awkward, dead-end tech, is expensive, and not particularly useful for any push against the enemy.

Berserker (Norway) - 17 (20-3) Weaker than a knight, abysmal defense, has to be hard-built.
Conquistador (Spain) - 21
Cossack (Russia) - 21 (20+1) Extra strength, additional extra strength near your border*, extra movement and retreat after attack makes this one of the best units in the game imo

*) Even though the game states "in your borders or adjacent to them" they get their bonus strength only in tiles outside but adjacent to your border. No clue if buggy unit or description though.

Eagle Warrior (Aztec) - 24 (23+1) - you get them right away when the war is free, they're strong, they bring builders. Just put them in the top position without any further voting.

P-51 Mustang (America) - 2 - 3 = -1 ELIMINATED It is not a very useful UU, and comes pretty late in the game, at a moment the AI can't defend itself.
