Denarii troops

Why are there only two good units (Legate and Evocatus) we can make with Denarii?

The stats for veles and numidians are the same. Gladiators and pikemen are the same. Triarius is nothing special compared to a peltast/cretan, and legionares are the same as golden shields but with a little better defense. Seeing as how I don't choose what offensive troops to make based on being slightly more survivable if they get ambushed. That is nothing special either.

The process to get Denarii takes longer and slows down the production of these lighter units. 

Most veteran players just say they are a waste of time.

I think they should be stronger seeing as how more goes into producing them.

Otherwise, what's the point?

Denarii Units are just one of the options. You need to compare all Unit stats to decide which ones are the best for you :)

Thats not really an answer is it alyona?

His question basically is these units cost more recources time and effort to get but have lower stats..

Thats not in balance or do you think that that is exactly the balance you guys want it to be?

or perhaps he is not right?

explain a little please instead off just saying well you can do what you want in game nobody forces you to make denari units....

thats really not a nice way of communicating...

Legate are way stronger than any other defensive unit (comparing to MP they are much stronger). And one Legate basically costs 1950 timber and 1950 bronze so it's not really that expensive. Yes Denarii takes longer to produce that's a fact. Players who are online often are favoured cause they use the 1 hour Denarii exchange which is the most efficient for when someone is online often. Now that colonies are gone and it's more difficult to collect denarii you just need to be patient. It takes a few days but you can produce much Denarii in order to build Denarii units.

Yes I know all of that. 

I also started that the Legates and Evocatus are good units.

I want to know why the light and heavy infantry variants are not.
