This question might have been asked before but if a choson legion went up against a roman legion and both had all armor and weapon upgrades who would win?

Rome wins hands down. If choson attacks first, rome survives with 16hp. If rome attacks first, rome survives with 28hp. Either way, rome has the better melee legions.

I've played several games with me as rome and my opponent is choson. I've won EVERY time. Rome always wins

Yep rome owns choson Better legions (including all three shields and the last attack upgrade (? not sure if choson gets it) plus they lack the gold dependancy,... i would trade hcav for scythes and HA for Hcats ANY day.

Choson gets all attack upgrades but not all armor upgrades (That's why choson get cataphract). Scythers also beat Heavy Cavs but Cataphract beat Scythers (Don't care how many scythers their all, splash damage don't do crap againt Cataphracts, o'course Cataphracts cost an insane amount of food to upgrade to) Choson LONGSWORDS would beat Romans, but Roman LEGIONS would beat Choson. mainly cause the different between 80 HP and 160 HP is much greater than 160 and 240. Choson also gets towers upgraded all the way. Roman gets better Siege though (All siege/upgrades except Alchemy) Overall i'd pick Rome cause of the cheap buildings. But if Rome didn't have those cheaper buildings IMO would be any man's game.

Being an insane rome fan i have to say rome wins. cheap buildings=more boats=faster age times. Rome also has 1/2 price towers (2 sentrey beat the **** out of a balista tower) and an awsome navy. When the gold runs low, choson is dead while rome gets the scyhte, and two scythe in close quarters beat two cataphracts (in 2 out of 3 tests in Post Iron Age.) Cheap priests mean squat to rome's superior legion flood or scyhte flood. And rome has the second best slingers (lacking alchemy) so all choson's archers are meat (there is a stupid range bug with slingers that occasionally lets them attack stuff that is attacking them with superior range which I actually wish would get fixed.)

Rome, along with shang own the tool age so the game is usually over before it begins Also rome's economy, with cheap buildings and shear quality of economic upgrades beats choson, hand down. Dual siege is awsome and only greek and minoa get it at the same level...but who plays greek?

I almost never play a civ with no non-gold units svae for the occasional minoa.

DM is a different story, however. So is nomad on def resorces where rome is as fast, if not faster under some circumstances, than shang.

Yeah truthfully I like rome alot better, but just to play the Devil's Advocate. How you gonna get 2 sentry towers on a choson ballista tower or any ballista tower? with 11 range I don't see how . HA make Choson slightly more useful in early iron. Choson does get Cats and Helos (I think...?) so their siege isn't that bad, they just lack upgrades. True they don't have any good units that don't gold. But really what's the only unit that can still fight in iron that doesn't cost any gold? Chariots/CA... (Except boats) and I wouldn't condemn any civ just cause they don't have chariots. (most civs that lack them have plenty of other reasons to hate them )

When the last time you saw one balista by itself, Borgy?
As soon as someone figures out how to dodge 20 balista projectiles, tell me.
