Beginner troops in Mercenary Post

I know this has probably been brought up billions of times, but I haven't seen this topic around for a while, so humour me will you?

This is for the 70s out there who probably suffer the same problem as I do: Can we please be able to buy macemen, crossbowmen and/or spearmen and bowmen from the mercenary post? The fastest soldier we can get after upgrading all our soldiers to vets are wolves (not counting direwolves here), and when it comes to capturing RVs or monuments, wolves aren't exactly ideal. We can't get there fast enough, they consume too much food if we keep about 200 of them for back-up, they take heaps of time and charcoal to get, and expectations of us only wanting to go hard, not fast aren't all that true.

Nowadays, so many of us level 70s would probably pay millions of coins at the chance to get like 10 beginner troops (Level 30s and under, be happy. Us level 70s are suffering because you guys are hogging those beginner troops to yourself), so let us get the chance to get them as well.

    If they did add this, would macemen be cheap or expensive?

    they would stay the same price. whats the point of adding them back then charging extra? im not paying extra for something that others can get at regular price just because im a higher level

    no, GGE would never do this.

    Also... it's easy to get wolves....

    I have 300+ of them... which will EASILY capture a monument/lab... even without tools... and they only consume 1 more food than lesser troops...

    not if they've researched veteran troops of that type, the veteran troops replace the basic

    It depends if they've researched the veteran troops or not. On the Australian server, I've already researched all the vets, so that inspired this suggestion. 

    On the UK server, however, I've refrained from researching the spearmen and bowmen because they're cheaper dummy soldiers than archers.

    I would sooner not research vet xbows/macemen.... what with easily acquirable Berimond troops, there is no longer any real reason to reasearch vet mace/xbows.
