Unit Information Game Strategies History
The backbone of the Ancient Age armed forces, Hoplites or "shieldsmen" are named as such after the big heavy shields they carry, and by far the most powerful infantry force in the early game as Hoplites are so hardened large numbers should give enemy archers pause, although horse archers will always find a way to lay waste to carefully arrayed Hoplites. The only issue however is that they cost immense amounts of Food and Timber, until you can reach the Classical Age when Metal then becomes available and you are then capable of obtaining them at a lower cost.
