Longbows and much better than skirms... the range.... it is insanity!

"The lembas had a virtue without which they would long ago have lain down to die. . . . this waybread of the Elves had a potency that increased as travelers relied on it alone and did not mingle it with other foods. It fed the will, and it gave strength to endure, and to master sinew and limb beyond the measure of mortal kind."

1. longbows are better

2. lets keep the uniqueness in the game

lbows own vet skirms ... it's the range, ranged resistance and nice attack.

No, if they had skirms it would be just like AOK, no uniqueness.

Even Roger's Rangers just seem like wasted pop by the time you can afford them.

Not necessarily. But I like to save them if I can if the game goes to industrial. Go up to the max pop and then research that tech because you can go over the max pop, giving you an edge over your opponent.

Rogers rangers were awesome when longbows sucked and 5 speed skirms were much better than all light infantry except the abus gun (back then they were OP). Now it seems you have to pay resources for units which are inferior to longbowmen.

Exactly, combine that with natives and an industrial mixed merc army and you can go over 250 and possibly 300 in military population (remember, native military population isn't included in your population)

This topic is almost like asking if Germans would be better with Hussars instead of War Wagons :P

Thanks to all those that signed the petition to get me unbanned here.
And special thanks to smashnbash for making it.

Can't really compare hussar to WW, maybe with Cav Archer or WW.. =\ And yeah longbow > skirms, especially when their range is 2 higher than skirms (atleast to my knowledge it is, haven't checked in awhile), even without the yeoman upgrade.
