Please stop talking absolute nonsense. The conclusions you see in maximus videos are not made only based on that particular test/video. They´re a result of observation on the battlefield and a lot of other testing and discussing between players. The video, while still accurate, is merely a ilustration of this conclusions. There might have been some little, but very little, influence of army losses in the final stats of the last thorax hoplite, maybe. But there definitely was no chain route and yes, thorax hoplites will do worse than thorax swords against barbarians, royal spartans will loose to oathsworn and hoplites will suffer and be cost ineffective against swords in almost all scenarios.
I agree in one point. You really need in depth understanding of the mechanics to raise logical and trusty conclusions, which you didn´t at all with your testing against the AI.
Take a friend who plays the game and do the re testing with him. You´ll see for yourself how ridiculous conclusions raised by testing with the AI are.

Stop BSing around with all your self-assumption after watching a video dude. The testing was done in a controlled environment, and hoplites win is oblivious because they have much higher stat and superior damage comparing to all non-Celtic Sword.

you're all too busy getting rude and have forgotten the point of the thread. The relative balance of hoplites and swords isn't too bad but you don't need spears because cav is easy to kill
