Why is it you cant upgrade simple bowmen, axemen and scouts? I mean, scouts I can understand, but why not scout ships also?

don't boats allways have the same wood cost? If that's so, then juggernaughts are just as good for scouting as scout ships. axemen are probably just good for skirmishers, I suppose.

I agree very much with Axemen. Heck, I'm sure they have used Bronze Axes. Besides, swords didn't completely dominate the warfare of ancient times.

The Bronze Age Double-Bladed Axemen/Macemen are missing.
(When I say Macemen, they are very different from clubmen - sure, they are still blunt whacking weapons, but these maces are made from bronze and are flanged)

Yes, but it makes a tool rush ineffective after you bronze. If you had an axer army in Tool, you could wait till Bronze and then swarm. But forcing you to change units when you bronze slows down a rush which is good for the game.

What I mean is, my suggestion would be in the Clubmen upgrade line, so it would be Stone Age Clubmen, Tool Age Axemen, Bronze Age (whatever)men. By then, there's no need to change/retrain other units, since all you are doing is upgrading, a bit like training clubmen in Stone Age and upgrading them in Tool Age when rushing the opponent.

What I find myself doing is not building axemen anymore, and as anyone should know, axes were not only non civillised.
And no, not all boats are the same.

Yup - I usually train about 3 bowmen over 3 axemen...

I usually Iron start, so those troops become useless.

Bronxing in 15? Never tried it. (Does it work?)

Aye aye - reaching Bronze Age by 15:00...

My average is about 15:30 (without shorefishing or docking), and that is why I need more practise.

With shore fishing, I achieved Bronze time of 14:15 before, but nothing earlier...

Ah well - I'll reach there one day, hopefully...
