Assuming 2 T1 units roughly equivalent to 1 T2 unit

Diplomat Information and Stats

Terms:

? ? ??RC (Resource Cost) = Strict Resource to gold translation,

? ??assuming 3 gold to 1 basic resource equivalent

? ??assuming 2 gold to 1 food resource equivalent

? ??assuming 25 gold to 1 research equivalent

? ? ?MC (Market Cost)

? ??Assuming 1 horse = 900 gold equivalent

? ??Assuming 1 book = 1000 gold equivalent

? ??Assuming 1 saddle = 4000 gold equivalent? ??

Starting out with a Strict Resource comparison
(Cost in resources per attack/defensive point created ? smaller the number the better)

Break down:
Assassins: 3 times the attack value and almost 2 1/2 times the defense value for T2 assassin
Saboteur: 2 times the attack value and nearly 2 times the defensive value for T2 saboteur
Thief: 2 times the attack value and just over 1 1/2 times the defensive value for T2 Thief
Values are reversed for Scout and Spy
Scout: just under 1 1/2 times the attack value and over 1 1/2 times the defensive value for T1 Scout
Spy: under 1 1/2 times the attack value and almost 2 times the defensive value for T1 Spy

Break down:
Attack:? Assassin T2 yields a 4 times return on investment, Saboteur and Thief T2 over 1 times investment, Scout and Spy T1 return a better investment

Defense:? Assassin T2 yields a 3 times return on investment, Both T1 and T2 for Saboteur and Thief are about equivalent, Spy and Scout T1 approach a 2 times investment

Recruit Time

Break down:
In every case, if time is the limiting factor to bolster your diplomat strength offensive or defensively then recruiting T2 units over T1 units yields at the minimum a 2 1/2 times investment and in some cases almost a 4? times investment.

With these numbers above:
2000 T1 Thieves vs 1000 T2 thieves
