    Default UNIT SIZE: Medium vs Large ?

    What is your opinion?
    What do you like/dislike about medium/large unit size?

    To start:
    -Missile units are at a disadvantage in large size. example: matchlocks cannot fit as many men in the front row.

    Hi HaZE7 !

    No Ultra setting option...I'm saddened =(

    Anyway,large is my preference between these two settings.I'm a fan of large scale engagements,the larger the better.

    What I like about the larger settings is units will stay in the fight longer (mostly),giving more tactical options rather than just relying on uber damage wether it be ranged/cavalry or melee.

    I'll vote for large unit size. Your units are more durable. Ranged and cav are not as strong in Large as in medium and I like that (:

    More units.
    More interested in European history.
    Different cultures.
    More factions.
    Not that many gun powder troops, it's not a new Empire I want.

    funny, these are the same reasons why I prefer medium.
    Large is 'easy mode' for melee rushers.

    This is not a poll people, this is a discussion. Discuss.

    I prefer small so I can win the game with matchlocks.


















    jk, I prefer large settings because it is the most balance setting their is, no unit is stronger.

    Please substantiate your claim.
    I would argue that large size favors melee infantry.

    Paraphrasing goldilocks; medium is just right.
    Rush or skirmish are viable.
