Assuming your Civ doesn't have a UU that makes one much better than the other.
Yeah, I almost never build them myself. I built one this game because there's only one small area where an invading force can easily approach me from land and an Encampment is nice border defense...and also because building it got me envoys in 3 City-States.My typical ratio is 0:0. I rarely build Encampments unless I'm either being swarmed by barbarians or have a particularly aggressive neighbor (*shakes fist at Dom Satan*). Or occasionally if I need production but already have/don't have a good place for an Industrial Zone. If I do build an Encampment, I build Barracks because they're cheaper.
Only for civilized folk; they were the mainstay of barbarians (something Civ6 gets painfully right).Probably slightly more barracks than stables, regardless of unique units. Mounted units were the luxury of the elites after all so stables are less common
Usually 1 stable and the remaining encampments all get barracks.
