Roman is the best civ.

Use this combo to kill anyone

FULL UPGRADES
Infantry/Acadamy
Slingers
Skith Chariots
Priests
Siege Weapons

Why?
If you are attacked by archers, Skith Chariots & Slingers will kill them.
If attacked by infantry, yours will kill them.
If there are lots of towers, slingers will knock them down.
Priests are good if attacked by Elephants, and Infantry will take care of Camels / Skith Chariots.
Siege weapons will take out buildings and walls, and help with elephants.
Roman Infantry does well vs Cavalry too!

Weaknesses?
At sea no fire galleys, but all other boats
No good Cavs/Archers

Funny stuff?
Try running a Cav into a group of close together enemy Heavy Cats! (OK, so anyone could do this...)

Romans get almost all upgrades, and cheap buildings & Towers, and logistics makes a barracks worth building. So are Romans the best? Well, it depends who plays. An expert playing Persian/Greek can kill a newbie Shang/other, and an expert Babylonian can kill Phonecian newbies on an Ocean map, and an expert Egyptian can beat a Choson/Roman newbie in an Infantry Only game.

No, Romes not te best civ ever...because any other mix will kill your mix hoplite
stone thrower rush
1.calvary/archer
2.archer/ siege
3.hoplite/siege
4.hoplite/archer
I won't get in to triplets or iron but, thats four bronze mixs and reasons why they aren't superb...they still are very good though.

There is no best civ ever! If there was a "best civ" than it sure wouldnt be those Romans. I'd take Palmy over them anyday

Rome needs Compos to be a great civ.

Kramer take another look at what you have said. If you can get full upgrades for all of the units you have counted there, and keep in mind you can never get full upgrades for all of them unless you play against computer or absolute newbie, any civ with the full upgrades for all units will be a very good civ including Greek and Persia.
