Hoplites are the Tier 2 infantry units in Game of War: Fire Age. They have a high load capacity and like all infantry are strong against Calvary and Siege.
Hoplites are a big improvement over their tier 1 equivalent. For the most part you should stop training Swordsmen as soon as you unlock Hoplites.
Like their tier 1 counter parts, Hoplites require no stone to build, which can be useful if you are low on stone. Their down side is they require roughly double the resources and take twice as long as to train than Swordsmen.
