Topic Subject: Second thoughts on priests

Well, I had a revelation last evening. I almost never use priests. I guess I feel that they aren't worth the effort or aren't effective. I played a guy named Jason56 online and we were playing tournament islands. I had a pretty solid game going when he managed to send a couple of transports with priests...

He started converting my buildings, which was pretty brutal, and even when I sent 20 units of infantry - about 7 of them, at least, would begin shooting at each other because they were converted.

I lost the game. I'm also going to start using priests...

I had never considered that before...after converting the barracks per say, any units qued-up would now be yours for free. That would certainly counter the expense of the preist. Any opinions on preist upgrades?

priests are good on islands but other than that if its RM then its not cost efficent. and if its DM then u can mass other units and slaughter them.

keep in mind that people won't want to play with you if you do that, so only use it on:

1. newbies

2. people you hate

Hey, check this out...

Really heated game last night, WW2. Usually I've been one to think that there's just not much use for Priests in the Atomic Ages but I made three of them and put them behind my force. I was able to convert an airport in their base and use it as a staging ground for providing air support while the ground troops kept thier ground troops at bay. Very successful.

I don't think I'd use them regularly, but I just might break down and start using Priests and Prophets more in Atomic ages.

I once used nothing but Priests and killed a guy.. haha. Its was pretty funny. I gathered enough resources, and proceded to build the Bablyon. WHen it finished, I sent over 50 Priests to the guy and converted his Citizens to build towers all over him . Then I converted all his buildings for my own personal use.. haha. Fun fun fun fun...
