    True, that 4 attack is sick. My comments were better suited to the horsemen vs. standard swordsmen agrument... Immortals are another beast. However, the real key I think is being militaristic and having a lot of units.

    I've had similar problems when using Egypt... I only have 2 or 3 elite units around, and the loss of even one is devastating.


    Actually, I have refined that tactic a bit. I used to use my elites as "finishers" when attacking cities - tasked to take out that last, beat up spearman. Problem is, I watched one too many elite horsemen lose five straight rounds to a 1hp spearman (no chance for retreat). That gets frustrating. So now I do my best to use elites for "open ground" attacks on healthy AI units. If I get one of those truely terrible RNG rolls, I may still be able to retreat.

    The trick isn't to break some eggs to make an omelette, it's convincing the eggs to break themselves in order to aspire to omelettehood.
