In my favourite period there are two armies that I like to use frequently

1 - Achaean League (the last one 146bc ish) Decent Pike troops with adequate supporting foot, I havent lost a game yet with it (using TT Mod & Rise of AI).

2 - Boioitian (the one that has the deep Hoplite units), as above, a decent core of good quality foot and up to 5 or so huge phalanxes that are not so much an anvil BUT that are a very good 'sponge' for absorbing & repulsing enemy assaults.

I hope that helps

You must be looking at the aggregate chart from seasons 1 and 2, because there were no Indians or Indo-Greeks in season 2.

Following the "massed non-combat archer" nerf, it is unlikely that Indians and Indo-Greeks will do quite so well in Season 3.

Also, you need to be aware that a lot of the armies in your list are what we might call "high skill threshold" armies. (Carthaginians, Kingdom of Soissons, Romano-British, Scots-Irish). These armies rely for success on the skilled use of mediocre troops. They are not a formula for success in the hands of beginners.

Then again, no army is really a magic formula for success.

I know, this list is just raw statistics.

They are in TT Mod, which is not used for the Digital League.
