They're sneaky as all get out.

Loose formation or very fast light cavalry. Maybe light cavalry archers, even.

Use your own light cavalry, and chase them down. They aren't too strong in melee.

If all else fails, use a loose formation, and just wait 'till they run out of ammo. Then move in for the kill.

They dont run out of ammo until you are dead. Best bet is to chase them with something fast...

All true stories end in death.

They don't run out of ammo? Is this arcade mode or regular?

He's being sarcastic. His point was that they'll cause too many casualties before they run out of ammo, so you're better off chasing them down.

Dogs are the best for chariots.

They are really fast, do good damage, and replenise themselves after battle!

Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

yeah, catching them with cav is best, and easier done at the onset of battle when they are closer and haven't killed so many of your dudes.
