Just for fun.

For further clarity here is an example post:
|15:03:37 Mar 31st 22 - HorusPanic (Ms. Masako):|
T1 - Gaia, obv this is the only choice
|15:52:09 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Trogdar):|
T1 - Gaia
T2 - Elf Archer
T3 - Warlord (Best T3 unit in VU. Also worst unit in VU. Don't think about it.)
T4 - Troll MU
T5 - Nazgul
Racial: Human 200k
My genius strategy would be to build a 200k and pump Nazgul.
If anyone ever prepped my 200k I would slaughter them with Nazgul+Self-AOTD. I would spam Gaia OOP and when I hit 50k-100k Gaia I would spam Archers if I needed to. I would never train a T3 unit (dont think about it). I would build up to 70k land very quickly and land-drop a 200k.
|16:53:17 Mar 31st 22 - Venus (Mr. Wizard):|
T1: Gaia (obvious reasons)
T2: Elf Archers (best defensive T2)
T3: Pony Riders (extra movement cheap offense)
T4: Mage (Human)
T5: Berserkers (don't need magic 9 to be efficient)
Racial Trait: Half building cost (best trait in game)
Good luck beating me OOP :)
|16:56:33 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Trogdar):|
The player who takes Halfing Build Cost and Human Swordsmen T1 is coming OOP with 75k Swordsmen
|16:58:16 Mar 31st 22 - Venus (Mr. Wizard):|
Matthew and Panic, he stated 1 unit max per race. :)
|17:27:24 Mar 31st 22 - HorusPanic (Darth Paniqy):|
T1 - Gaia, obv this is the only choice
so I guess that leaves the dwarf race bonus...? I already am taking advantage of orc bonus and elf bonus somewhat
|17:28:05 Mar 31st 22 - Konspyre (Captain Kraantje Pappie):|
T1 Gaia - Orc
T2 Archer - Elf
T3 Ponies - Halfer
T4 Magicians - Human
T5 Berserkers - Troll
Bonus: Half building costs from Halfer
Gaia+Archer+Ponies for all the OOP versatility a man needs> farm up big ass income > Spam massive berserker numbers.
|17:50:57 Mar 31st 22 - Jarl The Vengeful:|
T4 troll mus
|18:51:38 Mar 31st 22 - Venus (Mr. Wizard):|
Konspyre a copy cat. :)
But I consider it 1 vote for my idea, haha.
|19:37:46 Mar 31st 22 - Konspyre (Captain Kraantje Pappie):|
it's the obvious choice without funny tactics, no?
|20:34:09 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Mathew):|
No Halfling unit is better than 1/2 land cost, for instance, which is already probably the best racial trait in the game anyways.
T1: Gaia (Orc)
T2: Archer (Elf)
T3: Pony Rider (Halfling?)**
T4: Magician (Human?)**
T5: Berserker (Troll)
Racial: 1/2 land cost (Halfing)
There we go. That's the best answer.
**If you arent allowed to go racial bonus+racial unit then swap Pony Rider for Knight and take Runemasters, or use Axemen + Magicians if you never intend to train a T3 unit and want cheaper MU.
The only other alternatives are swapping Berserker for Nazgul and Gaia for Hobgoblin (worse OOP, better for self-AOTD)
or swapping Berserker for Archmage and Archer for Rockthrower (science costs are unclear)
|20:44:13 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Mathew):|
Ghosts are a horrible unit, theyd be excellent if they didn't require a peasant.
1/2 land cost is by far the best racial bonus, especially if it didnt come with Halfling racial penalty of increased food consumption.
If you can't take a racial bonus and a racial unit then you would probably want Knights instead of Pony Rider, but only because you couldn't take Pony Rider.
If you can take a racial bonus and a racial unit then you wouldnt end up using anything from Dwarf at all.

For a different build, I would consider:
|21:18:43 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Trogdar):|
Warlords are the best T3 unit in VU but theyre also one of the least used/worst units as well (dont think about it)
|21:42:22 Mar 31st 22 - Konstant (The Ancient Hector Son of Troy):|
True, but no one said this is in a vacuum. I'd have a KD to help out, just like Trolls/Dwarves/Elves have these days.
|22:01:13 Mar 31st 22 - Matthew (Chief Trogdar):|
In that case I think that utilizing Cavemaster and Farmer (both good units) to boost your economy and Elf Archers and a 200k to not die is pretty solid. Warlords+Cavemaster definitely seems better than Berserkers. Warlords are really good units, if Troll had any T5 unit other than Berserkers they would actually get used.
|02:12:10 Apr 1st 22 - Percy (Mr. Percy The Range Test Officer):|
@Kon, you also assume your Himan 200k would have the tax and PG boosts that come with Human, which would not exist. Your Econ would be roughly 400k lower without the 10% tax boost since it’s applied at the base, meaning any tax benefits from large cities are compounded. Your 2 mil gold in taxes would be a lot more than 10% lower ;)
|02:27:29 Apr 1st 22 - Percy (Mr. Percy The Range Test Officer):|
To avoid what’s been said (mostly Halfer racial boosts, which are single-handedly the best boosts in my opinion), here’s a screwball for all-out attacker, like a modified Troll.
T1: Swordsmen - Dwarf (last left…)
T2: Archers - Human
T3: Riders - Elf
T4: Halfling MU
T5: Bezerkers - Troll
Racial: Orc FM
Still not the strongest OOP, but maintains a similar early with a greatly expanded mid to late era. Being able to FM Riders in conjunction with Zerkers for late era would be insane to stop. And as a Troll, can kick in FM to finish off those running away.
|04:23:19 Apr 1st 22 - Konstant (The Ancient Noble Gilgalad):|
I've had a 200k as a non-Human and it still produced 1m+ in taxes.
|11:00:07 Apr 1st 22 - Lord Jellybean (Mr. Jellybean Demon):|
Dwarves with bear mounts :)
