    Default So why exactly were the Dosidataskeli removed?

    So, i`ve often heard that the Dosidataskeli were removed because it wasn`t sure whether they were historical accurate or not.

    But there must have been reasons to include them in the first place, e.g sources that speak for them. I just wanted to ask whether someone could link me to those sources (Well, if they are available for mere mortals like me, that`s it.).

    Thanks in advance.

    I think they were ruled out because they were far to few in number to be portrayed in a TW game. Im not sure tough

    I think those sources where part of the problem. The guy that "created" them and had access to the sources disappeared. The team couldn't find the sources on their own, so they chose not to include units they couldn't be sure of that they weren't just fantasy units.

    At least that's the story of the Goidelic units.

    IIRC the Dosidataskeli existed, they were just so rare that there should have been only a handful of them.

    Too rare to merit being a unit, also there were some concerns about the sources for the too AFAIK.

    They looked like "tanks" but weren't exactly invincible in battles. In fact they were toned down in the last release alot. They are slightly above average.

    If you can say a unit with 6 more defense than most elite infantry units is "slightly above average"

    i guess in EB2 they can be a unique unit, of which only one could exist.

    In fact, they're still very powerful. The TAB, who are similar, if slightly weaker, are a nightmare for most other units when the Seleukids throw them on the battlefield (try fighting them as Saba...).
    I don't know where he got the information about a nerf from.
