Alright everyone today i am going to analyze the everlasting debate of teutons: axemen or clubswinger.
My choice: clubswinger, why is that?
Well clubswinger has more attack power/time more attack power/res cost and is cheaper, on the other hand all the poor axemen has is attack power/crop which can be easily negated by: 1) having a 125%+ 15c, 2) consistent raiding(which clubswinger is arguably the best raiding unit in the game competing with Theutates thunder).
So overall i think that clubswinger is better in pretty much every way as his only weakness is the crop usage which as i already explained can be easily negated, i would go as far as to call axemen the WORST unit in the game! Why? Because although it's purpose is attacking it's also meant to be a more flexible unit as it has 30 defensive strength in both cavalry and infantry defense which makes it obviously less powerful than a specialized unit designed for that purpose, there isn't a single other worse unit in the game in my opinion maybe aside from legionnaire(maybe) which is still used by romans as cavalry defensive unit.
However there is still light at the end of the tunnel for axemen as i will try to explain under which circumstances axemen is better than the good old clubbies.
The following conditions must be met:
1) have a poor oasis bonus/don't have a 15c at all. explanation: If you have low crop usage then it may be axemen's opportunity to shine above the competition as his main strength is getting used.
2) DO NOT PLAY ON A SPEED SERVER! explanation: on speed servers you naturally produce more crop than usual thus not having crop issues whatsoever also you have limited time to make your hammer so attack power/time is better since it allows you to have your hammer set up much quicker.
Alright everyone that is it for this post, please give me feedback if you think i overlooked some details/you disagree with my opinion i have really enjoyed writing this and would be glad to have some feedback on my writing style so next posts will be better/more enjoyable.
