8 max cav was only rule in all 3 battles. This battle was the longest and most exciting to me. I don't know how the outcome was what it was. I would fast fwrd this one to 1184180 till the first catapult is fired. It took so long because my side manuevered to get high ground for our catapults. If you want to see catapults use up all ammo on spearmen this is it. We pounded the crap out of them. They were patient though and withstood the bombardment stoically. I couldn't believe the outcome. Comments welcome. It may take a while but it is a good strategic battle.
Those kinds of spear perimeter defenses always seem tough to crack.

yea, i think the elephants were the deciding factor even though they were eventually broken.

Elephants seem to me to be more annoying than helpful. I saw a replay once where a guy used his elephants against enemy infantry, but they kept routing and retreating right through his own men. I'm not kidding, they must have done more damage to his own troops than to the enemy.
