Line infantry, because nothing's worse than standing in long visible lines, wearing brightly colored uniforms, and waiting your turn to get shot at.

For me militia are the worst. They don't provide much of a punch in melee or ranged combat. I even prefer armed citizens over them since at least you don't have to pay for those.

I love militas, good for sucide missions, holding buildings. Hell i even took all the south american provinces with those guys. And the islands. But they got their ass wiped hard in North America against natives.

Worst unit? hmm that must be provincial cavalery, cant fight good, ok for scouting, a bit exspensive upkeep if i recall right. Atleast for the power they give.

I only like Long Rifle Men in large armies because they need backup otherwise they route super easily.

And they cost almost as much as Line Infantry which are able to inflict and take much more damage in a smaller battles. Which occur more often than full army battles.

I've just used Light Infantry for my long shooters now and they seem better all around then the Long Rifle men and they cost less. So I'm Happy

Hunter, the 6 liber cannons is super good if you can controle it. Send it with 1-2 units of cav to capture an high point on map. (they are very very fast same speed as cav i think)

It is a bit weakers than normal cannons, but its speed pay up for the 6 liber. Ohh and if you think 6 liber really suck that hard, dont try the 3 liber =P

Personally i love them, only problem is that you get them late in game.

I don't like the winged hussars personally, other lancers have the same charge bonus, other heavy cav have the same melle stats,and they are all so ridiculously expensive.
Millita you can just use as a meat sheild so I find even they're better.

Light infantry, mayb its because I never had any use for them in battle... Too vulnerable to cavalry and when you send them out to pick off units with their range, they're very easy targets for cav.

Conscripts. When playing as Venice they cost a fortune and barely manage the same job as the militia, slightly better at firing their guns but weaker in combat and less ammo.

I hate all Ottoman infantry units. They cost twice as much to maintain as European troops and they can't even fire by rank. Only the Nizam-I Cedit infantry are worthy of use.

P.S. - actually, I like Semenys with the DMUC expansion. The unit sizes are increased to 450 and their upkeep is only 130g. Basically, you can train a massive horde twice the size of a European army for half the cost. Their morale sucks though. :/

When I played as the Mughals I thought their 'Mob' unit was actually really useful. It consists of 200 peasants with pitchforks but the sheer numbers completely overwhelm whatever they're fighting and above all else they are expendable so I don't need to risk my precious Hindu Musketeers to canister if my meat shield mob goes into melee first.
