Some people complain about getting bored with attila. I'm not at that point yet but I can see where people are coming from. There are too many copy and paste Germanic units. Also, all factions looks the same in battle because of the unit icons.
Rome II had larger rosters with much more variety. Of course there will be crossovers but there needs to be more distinguishing features. You might say 'oh well its ok they're the same culture' but if you look at Rome II, there was even lots of differentiation between the Greek factions like Sparta and Athens, and then even the units they shared weren't key ones like hoplites. Celts were fairly similar but that was 3 factions out of loads. Then if you look at barbarians in general there was a massive difference between Iceni, Arverni, Lusitani, Arevaci, Suebi, Odryssian, Getae, Galatia ect.. Attila has just has Huns, Sassanids, Romans, Nordics and Germanics (oh and Celtics which are useless anyway).
Germanic Pikes, Archers, Noble Horse, Lancers, Bows, Hunters, Horse, Spearmen, Noble Spearmen are in too many rosters. Also Nordics lack good variety with the Skirmishers, Axe Warriors, Levy, Spears, Horse Lords and other Melee cav. Don't have Celtic DLC so can't comment on that.
Its the wrong way round, it shouldn't be a few unique units it should be a few shared units.
