Unit Counters For T&P up to Enlightenment Age
Dedicated to The Albino, on behalf of people out there getting started on Multiplayer. I'll try to keep it simple. This Unit Counter chart is assuming both players are in the SAME Age.

Ancient Age: There are only 3 military units in Ancient Age.

LI = Light Infantry Best counter is with Heavy Infantry, then Light Infantry, then Citizens.
HI = Heavy Infantry Best counter is with Foot Archers, then Heavy Infantry. Don't attack them with Citizens or Slingers!
FA = Foot Archers Best counter is Light Infantry, then Foot Archers. Don't attack them with Heavy Infantry, in fact, run away!


Classical Age: Now there are 5 additional units to worry about when in Classical Age.

LI Best counter is with Heavy Cavalry, Light Cavalry, War Elephants, HI, LI, and Militia.
HI Best counter is still the FA, then Horse Archers, War Elephants, and other HI.
FA Best counter is with Light Cavalry, Heavy Cavalry, LI, other FA, and Militia.
LC = Light Cavalry Best counter is with HI, Heavy Cavalry, War Elephants, and other Light Cavalry.
HC = Heavy Cavalry Best counter is with HI, War Elephants, other Heavy Cavalry, and if you have mass, then Light Cavalry and Militia.
HA = Horse Archers Best counter is with Light Cavalry, then FA, other Horse Archers, and sometimes LI and Militia.
WE = War Elephants Best counter is with FA, then Horse Archers, other War Elephants, and sometimes Heavy Cavalry, and Light Cavalry.

Medieval Age: Same as Classical Age


Gunpowder Age: Same as Classical and Medieval Age except for the LI since they become Gunpowder Infantry.

LI Best counter is with HC, LC, and other LI. Do not attack them with WE's or HI anymore!
HI Best counter is now the LI, then FA, HA, WE, and other HI.
HA Best counter is still HC and now LI, and then other HA. Militia can hurt them, but it's best to garrison your Citizens instead.
WE Best counter is now LI, then FA, HA, WE.


Enlightenment Age: Same as Gunpowder Age except for HI since they become ranged and only one unit really counters them. FA are now upgraded to LI.

HI Best counter is with LI, then other HI.
HA Best counter is now LI or HI, then LC and Minutemen.
WE Best counter is now LI and HI, then HA.
