1 Cata vs level 5 units
4 cata's(40k gold) "slapped" by 1 nazzie(45k gold) and it has 160 defence to boot for 5k more gold!
1 cata(10k gold) "slapped" by 1 Zerk(6k gold)
1 cata(10k gold) "slapped" by 4 cavemasters(4k gold)
1 cata(10k gold) "slapped" by 4 Advents(7.6k gold)

For christ sake the elves level 2 unit can bitch slap an army of cata's for less gold then it costs to build a human cata army.

Thats kinda sad >_<

Anyone else think cata's a little useless

That's why you carry catas in a combo of 4:1 archers:catapults.


21:09:33 May 22nd 10 - Mr. Path:

Thats 56/40 for 12000gc

Why not just do 5 knights.... 55/55 for just 500 more gc.  I know id pay 500 gc for 15 points of defense at the cost of 1 offense.  Plus it offers more flexibility with the double speed that you can use in certain circumstances.


16:09:49 May 23rd 10 - Mr. Vuggy:

Catas can break gates. :) armies this early into era shouldn't have many catas in them.. IF any. It should mostly be swordsmen, probably archers by now, and maybe some knights in there. If you're trying to use catas this early era.. lol


05:42:09 May 24th 10 - Mr. Dead Oralive:

................even late era cata's are useless so your point is pointless.


07:26:25 May 24th 10 - Toaster Struddle:

Catas suck because humans had the market discount which is what allowed people to build such big cata armies.  Human Catas were good when humans had a market advantage.now that they see stuff early instead of getting a discount humans are kinda useless.  Think about it the price of catas hasnt changed since they became static and humans were still used then.  Only after humans lost the 10% discount did Catas become useless and people stopped playing them.  Until humans get market discount back they will be completely useless


18:02:57 May 24th 10 - Mr. Dead Oralive:

or cata's are nerfed to be useful


09:25:44 May 25th 10 - Duke Random The Silver Buttrapeachu:

the only thing about human that sucks is the science costs, everything else are alright.... ish....


16:29:03 May 25th 10 - Mr. Dead Oralive:

alrightish aka sub par


18:22:31 May 27th 10 - Duke Random The Silver Buttrapeachu:

alrightish means not outstanding, but can be played well if effort is put in...


though to be fair. i'd never use cata's unless I ran short on pez :P


06:02:53 May 28th 10 - Sir Teirdel:

Even now with stg you can barely compete. If you keep your knights alive and invest heavily in stone to gold, play market a bit you might be able to beat a good troll :).
