    Exactly as the title states, why don't we make a UU all-star team? This would apply to the new civs as well as the old ones. The different positions would be:
    Ancient Era Melee/Naval
    Ancient Era Ranged
    Classical Era
    Medieval Era Ranged/Naval
    Medieval Era Melee/Mounted/Siege
    Renaissance Era Gun
    Renaissance Era Mounted
    Renaissance Era Siege/Naval
    Industrial Era
    Modern Era

    Any suggestions on how to better arrange this would be appreciated. There's probably a better way to position them.

    I'd say the ottoman janissaries are the best UU !

    ancient naval = q-reme , assuming its very cheap cost and aviability from sailing

    Both Phalanx and Q-reme suffer from the Greek syndrome. Powerful on paper, not entirely useful.

    I'd say that Jaguar warrior is the best ancient UU.

    Camel Archer now has 17 strength, 21 ranged strength, and 4 movement on a ranged unit with the ability to move after attacking.

    It's overpowered like Keshik always was, but trades a small movement loss for lots of damage.

    For Renaissance Era Mounted UU,It's quite difficult to choose between Hussars and Cossacks . Hussars get a huge bonus,but need someone to flank,while Cossacks just need a support from any ranged attack to activate their bonus . I'd say that Hussars are better in offense,while Cossacks are better at defense .

    IIRC, those are Industrial UUs.

    Yeah, that arrangement is sloppy. This is the format I'd recommend. (ranged and siege are combined)

    Ancient and Classical

    Melee
    Ranged
    Mounted
    Naval

    Medieval

    Melee
    Ranged
    Mounted
    Naval

    Renaissance

    Melee
    Mounted
    Naval

    Industrial to Atomic

    Melee
    Mobile (tanks and horses)
    Air

    Those are you category choices. XD Merged some eras due to lack of unit choice variety (to make the "all-stars" more important).

    Ancient Melee is definitely the Battering Ram.
