Unit Information Game Strategies History

Legions are the Roman unique Heavy Infantry of the Classical Age Classical Age, avaliable to upgrade from Hoplites as soon as the age is reached. Like all infantry, Legions are trained and upgraded at the Barracks, replacing the standard Phalanx.

Overview Edit

Compared to Phalanx, Legions have +2 moves, allowing them to be about 0.2 tiles per second faster, and more importantly, have a +100% damage bonus against all Heavy Infantry. This means that they are a relentless force, for an army of Heavy Infantry (or most other unit types) from other nations is hardly a match for a force of Legions of similar size, and only an opposing force with abundant Foot Archers or Ranged Cavalry (or Elephants), has a chance of stopping them and live to tell the tale.

Unit Costs Edit

Unit production cost increases progressively with every Barracks unit on the field or currently in production. The default increase is of 1 Food Food and 1 Metal Metal for the second unit created, increasing further with every new unit until the cost cap is reached, which for military units is +125% of their original base value. It's important to note, however, that these prices are the default standard, and actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies/ages, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.

Trivia Edit

  • The fact that Legions upgrade from Hoplites cleverly references, intentionally or not, a little-known part of history; for the earliest Roman heavy infantry troops were equipped in Greek Hoplite fashion.
