so i enjoy playing rome 2, and the multiplayer i find extremely enjoyable. however, i do have some niggles, most
notable, hoplites. they just aren't quite what i imagined. i really wish that they were this type of tank unit, spearmen that are weak when out of formation but very strong when in phalanx, so more of a defensive unit with high armour that excels when in phalanx but when caught out becomes weaker. at the moment they feel like just another
spearman, making the illyrians useless and all the different athenian/syracuse hoplite variants pointless. apart from
thorax and, on occasion, normal varieties, the hoplites just become filler. i cannot think of any reason to bring elite hoplites, but what do you guys think?
