efficiency

Archer - attack - 25
Mounted Archer (150:5=) attack - 30

It seems that between the defensive and attacking unit is almost no difference in terms of attack. Or I do not understand something?

I'm not ingame now, but MA have "only" 140 attack :)

But you can't compare attack and defence units... a lot of people do this...it's BAD ! You can never choose 1 of 4 number and compare it.

МА - Attack 150 - requires 5 people. Divide 150 by five. Gets 30 attacks. When this unit is attacking. Archer - attack 25 1 Population Gets 25 attacks. Defensive unit. It turns out that in terms of archers attack no less effective than МА

Actually 25 vs. 30 means 17% less effective than Mounted Archer, or the other way MA is 20% more effective than Archer - just by that "per population" attack value. They're also a lot faster. And in level 1 barracks you get 150 attack in 36:40 minutes (MA) versus 150 minutes (A) - here the MA is even over 300% more efficient than Archer.

I'm moving this to tactical discussions now.

And if you compare the required ressources for MA and Archer, you see, that there´s a difference, too.
250 Wood+100 Clay+150 Iron vs. 400 Wood+ 150 Clay+300 Iron (5x 80W +30C +60I).
