pls stop making realistic assumptions only and start thinking whether in game units can actually kill it or not, with my suggested stats maceman wont b able to one hit kill it, and heavy knight will need 3 hits to kill one upgraded legionary if there is any aura effect on it

y should a crossbow archer that a person spends 6 turns to research, deal only 1 damage to it?
Because research for praetorian would take same time or more to research, and even more to recruit.

Thus, praetorian should outclass most other infantry, not only does hatamoto gain hp, they also gain +2 attack, +1 speed, and maybe even gain in armor
(Quite a bit for one upgrade, I must say)

Hatamoto gain NO additional attack. At all. Only hp (+3), armor (+1 melee only) and speed (+1).
Also what gok suggests is different. It is not like with ornithopters. It is like with crossbowman - you can recruit roman legionaries AND research at the same time upgrade for them. And after they will become this unit.

For normal legionaries gok suggests:
+5 hp
+4 attack (too much already but oh well...)
+1/+1 armor

Samurais when upgrade to hatamoto gain only +5 toral additional stats.
This one gains +11.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

1. You pay more for praetorian than hatamoto. Thus, leeway would be warranted there
2. I DISTINCTLY remember attack upgrade from 9x2 to 11x2, so that needs fixed

I meant get rid of pilum,

upgrade tech cost 6 turns,

legionary still cost 4 turns,

base stats will increase

HP 28
Atk 12
Armor 2/3 (if u want to increase armor then go research legion training and make centurion)

Other stats remain unchanged after upgrade, this is my version of stat suggestion

If it is elite infantry might also get 50% bonus against other infantry similar to hatamoto
My original suggestion was +3 HP and +2 atk but anti infantry bonus same as hatamoto, also hatamoto base atk is 9 but gets +2 from Bushido aura,

Blacksmith upgrades need 11 turn cost each to upgrade only +2 stats, while legions for 4 turn tech cost can get insane amounts of armor,

Hatamoto is weak to arrows, legionary isn't, so most will get 5 damage from full upgraded crossbow man (and fully upgrading crossbow damage cost 17 turns, by which time one can have 2 centurions easily)
If a player exposes hatamoto there is no guarantee it will survive even 1 more turn but legionary has very high survivality, unless enemy uses cavalry or catapult/cannon spams

Anyways once again I say that I will not support anymore increase than my final stat suggestion of +4 HP, +1/1 armor and +4 atk (or +2 atk with 50% bonus against infantry)

Yes . You are right.
Bonuses can fix this
And about the helmet we can set a helmet for him just like heavy chariot or centurion

I have reshaded Ur image and also discovered some problems:

1. U didn't add transparent pixels for shadow, in-game it would have looked like he was standing on a gray hole

2. Ur player colour for the shield was so 'dark' it wasn't in the player colour range anymore so I fixed that

Other than that, the armour might b made much better by another expert artist who is better than me, I did the best I could....

@Alpha wat do u think of this? Should it b separate 6 turn cost unit or upgrade of legionary? Should it have storm's 6 turn cost stats? Should stats of Spartans b raised to match with this?

@godOfKings Make it a seperate unit, the upgrades for the legionary can be something different in my personal opinion.

So b it @StormSaint373

Anyways @Alpha do u think storm's first post stat suggestion is balanced for this unit?

How about keeping storm saint's first post stat suggestion but keeping HP capped at 32 HP

Instead increasing Spartan's base HP to 35?

I think it should be buffed in terms of HP, as the Praetorian were extremely powerful/buffed as a unit considering they were bodyguards/personal unit for the emperor to use.

32 HP is pretty high for a 6 turn infantry that is immune to arrows, plus Spartans train from childhood so they would b more beefed up than praetorians, which is y I also suggest raising spartan base HP from current 31 to 35

No one is IMMUNE to arrows, but they'd be highly resilient.

Minimum dmg taken for any attack is 1

You've got Templars that have 32 hp at start. They are cost 5

Why not for praetorian?

Templar has only 2/2 armor so it would get higher damage from any attack

And praetorian will also get 1 damage from counter atks of most infantry

But fine... it can have spear throw ability but same damage as Maori spear throw (spear throw ability cannot b reduced by armor so it cannot b too high else it will b op)

I'd say 8-10

Also note, spell abilities have miss chance based on Spell Resistance

Well not necessarily, it's possible to make them bypass it... At least in AoF and other variants. They can also be made to be reduced by armor...

But as a roman unit it would get centurion aura and possibly legion training.
I say give him both of these, +1 att and make him cost 7.

Or 3/5 armor and no ability with cost 6.
