Topic Subject:Amazing cataphracts charge in 1.2
posted 04 February 2005 13:16 EDT (US)         
I tested in custom battle a small battle
I had 1 unit of cataphracts
vs 1 unit of libiyan spearmen
no upgrades or anything on both sides

i approched their group in a thin spread out line with my cats, and about 10m before i charged i changed to wedge formation and my cats charged in the same second.

37/40 of the spear men died on impact, they were thrown in all sides. I seen cats run down 70% of units, but never throwing 37/40 spearmen in all directions.

*amazed* (perhaps 1.2 increased charge bonus glitch)

Yeah I noticed that. It is sooooo cool! Although spearmen are actually strong vs Cavalry! When the cataphracts get out their maces is pretty cool too!

How do you make the cataphracts get out their maces? I can't figure it out.

Hold the Alt key while telling them to attack. They beat Praetorians and even Elephants doing that. I don't think they would have the same luck against War or Armored Elephants though...

And by the way. The elephants have been upped too. My elephants are killing much more than before. They're killing more of my own men too, but that's O.K. considering I've been breaking people's backbones with heavy elephant attacks. Scythed Chariots aren't useless anymore either. They kill plenty more and can get through enemy formations without getting stuck in combat and killed.
