I'd say that would be a  pretty good response.  So if there has to be an answer, what would players want it to be if not that choice above?

Hold on, I challenge that assessment!

I've played magic kingdoms before and reached podium on those crappy troops (1st place Necromancer in game 5242, 1st place Demon Princes game 5247, and 2nd place Sorcerer game 5246).

I love skeletons!. They are cheap to maintain (0 food which is wickedly awesome in Ice Age games), fully heal themselves every turn, and low level wizards can summon a load of them for replacements.

Sure you can't fight an oversized enemy group one-on-one but you can wipe out that kingdom while they pile on their troops into a single group. With skeletons and teleporting/invisible wizard groups, you can hit 4-8 pc's before the other kingdom even knows what's going on. I've wiped out opposing kingdoms before they can respond with simple hit-n-run tactics taking over all of their pc's which weakened their troops.

So say what you wish but I've actually won games with just skeleton forces. If you want to know which is the worst troop type, try considering:

Lowest combat value:        War Machines
Lowest defense value:       Goblins
Highest gold consumption: Stormgate Guard, Phoenix      (3,000 gold per turn)
Highest food consumption: Stormgate Guard, Mammoths (3,000 food per turn)
Highest gold recruit cost:   Phoenix                                 (15,000 gold per brigade)
Highest food recruit cost:   Stormgate Guard, Hill Giants   (10,000 food per brigade)
                                       Mammoths, Phoenix, Trolls

Oh I love Skeletons too. Easy to get, cheap and heal.
