#1: Assyrians.

Although the Assyrians get the Cataphract upgrade, they lack Nobility and Plate Armor. It may not seem like it, but Nobility is actually a bigger deal then the Cataphract upgrade on Randon Map games, as Nobility is relevant right from the Bronze Age whereas the Cataphract upgrade... I think Cataphracts are underrated but even I have to admit it is expensive as heck and the game is going to have to be pretty long for it to be worth it, as a upgrade .

#2: Sumerians.

The Sumerians, alongside with the Egyptians, are the two only civilizations on the game to lack Cavalry on the Bronze Age. The difference between the two is quite simple: Between the Egyptian bonus and Storage Pit upgrade, Egyptian Chariots are-Much-Better.

#3: Greeks.

Well, they have the Heavy Cavalry upgrade. ... Not much else, though.

#4: Minoans.

Although, compared to the Greeks, they lack Heavy Cavalry, the presence of Camel Riders means that at least during the Bronze Age, their cavalry gets to be a bit better then the Greeks. Granted, it sucks on the Iron Age, but so does Greek cavalry, so...

#5: Choson.

Now, they do get Cataphracts! ... And lack Plate Armor! ... And just about every other cavalry unit!

Huh? Any civ with Cataphract, even if they lack iron age upgrades should rank better than greeks that lack cataphract, I think.

Although I think that the Cataphract is a underrated unit myself, truth is, even I think the upgrade is so ridiculously expensive that a lot of the time people kind of skip it :/. Which is why I still find Greek cavalry to be not as bad as the cavalry of a civilization that-Does-Gets Cataphract, but lack Nobility: Nobility matters right out of the Bronze Age, whereas on the case of Cataphract, it may or may not actually matter.

Keep in mind that I made this list with Randon Map in mind, by the way. A lot of games are won or lost in Randon Maps before Iron Age reaches, which is why I am treating the presence or lack of Nobility as such a big deal.
