Conquistador upgrade

Hi !

I play a lot to this closed beta, and I was able to reach conquistador. My questions are about the upgrade with emblematic units. I had crossbowmen but I can only upgrades them to harquebusiers, not conquistador. And when I get the musqueter technology, only the harquebusiers can be upgrades.

IMO it's not fair. EU was expensive because I have to build them. And later I was not able to upgrade them, so they were les efficient.

Did I miss something, or is it a bug? I remember that markabata can be upgrade from archer.

Aztec Gold (and Silver): The Conquistadors and The Night of Sorrow

Recovered Aztec Gold

Hernán Cortés, the famed Conquistador, set sail for Mexico in February 1519, first stopping in Trinidad to obtain supplies and more men, and landed in the Yucatan peninsula in Mayan territory with 11 ships, 500 men, 13 horses, and a small number of cannons shortly thereafter. Cortés’ mission was both to spread Christianity and to bring back riches for Spain. While the modern simplification of the events that transpired are oversimplified to “Cortés bad, evil man, Aztecs innocent and good”, the truth was in fact a bit more nuanced than that as outlined by a soldier who traveled with Cortés in Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España by Bernal Diaz and first published in 1568.

Diaz paints the picture of a Cortés that definitely was there to find and acquire riches, but that initially attempted peace with the Aztecs but through massive cultural differences and a series of misunderstanding ended up at war with the Aztecs and put in the position of conquering them or being killed by them. The truth is likely a mix of Diaz's narrative and the “Cortés evil” narrative, but what is known is that the Aztecs had extremely strange to the Spanish and immoral cultural and religious habits such as human sacrifice, cannibalism in their markets, and ruthless treatment of neighboring tribes, all of which made it easier for Cortés and his men to feel morally superior to them and to align with the native troops against Montezuma to conquer the Aztecs. One other undisputed fact is that the Aztecs were rich in gold, silver, and gemstones and used them to create plates, ornaments, medals, and other decorations. Silver was primarily utilized in jewelry by the Aztecs. The Aztecs, while highly valuing gold, silver, and gemstones, did not utilize them as currency, instead utilized copper coins for large denominations and cocoa beans as the lesser denominated currency value. As he slowly made his way towards the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, Cortés met disgruntled natives captive to the Aztec Empire along the way and received gifts from Montezuma that included much gold and silver. Montezuma believed that Cortés was Quetzalcoatl, a God that was to return to Earth, and so sent treasures such as a gold-plated wheel six and a half feet across, weighing some thirty-five pounds, smaller silver wheels, and a Spanish helme
