I agree that destroying your city can help some of the players, like, ROmans, but why can't I destroy my own unit? I have upgraded Mounted and Artillery, but if I enter a battle, those streght 1 and 2 spearmen will ALWAYS be in my battles...

Why did I bought them??? WHY??? cry

Why can't I fire them... "Look guys, thank you for your service but you are not neededany more ok? Bye!"

In the PC game we can do that, and I see no reason why I could not do so.

I think you've correctly identified the reason right there! It's supposed to be annoying and hinder you.

Yep, no mulligans in this game. What are we, cissy video gamers? You made your bed, now you've got to sleep with your spearmen.

Plus you typically don't know how good they are until they get into battle and quantity also has value in the game. Besides if they survive the battle who says they are not better soldiers than the 2 3 level guys that your opponent killed off.

Like in the Video games, upgrade the buggers!! Last game I upgraded 1 shevron infantry to one star modern Infantry in one go. Remember, you don't have to upgrade one step at a time. Yes, your 1 Spearman sucks, but, as in my case, they became killer 4's in a battle I had following my upgrade.

If I already have a high level green and blue, I can now focus on other things. I do not think we need ALL of the upgraded units. Even because you usually don't have many cards of the kind I have not uppgraded.

I still think that a disband should be legal.
