They can beat Praetorian Guards AND Royal Spartans (which are tied for 2nd most OP) with less than half losses in 1 on 1, almost every time.

The only time where Royal Spartans stand a chance is in a defensive battle, with a "Commander General" spamming "Raise banner."

What are the stats of the three units without any upgrades/ranks?

Not really the single most OP unit... Foot Companions, Hellenic Royal guards and Silvershield Pikemens or any high tier pike units owns them 1v1

Stats are a bit misleading on the pikes but they sure do own

Yeah I have also noticed that these units are pretty OG.

Last night I almost lost because 4 of my garrison units took too long to finish them.

Because game balance is based on 1v1 unit effectiveness...

War dogs are OP. In every battle they get triple or quadruple that of the next highest unit's killcount, and take very few losses.

Wonder how they match Gladiators. Those things are monsters.

Actually, due to the sheer stupidity of the AI, as long as each of my units are worth 1 of yours (or 2, if I'm outnumbered), victory is guaranteed as long as I have the stronger guy.
