IMO Elephants are still EXTREMELY powerful. You used them wrong. I've won whole battles with elephants- ask Adder, in the forum party I crushed Mace's entire army with just my eles doing most of the work.

Huh so elephants still work? Does any body know the exatct stat? I luv elephants but i think it takes too long for them to die.They should of just reduced HP not HP and Attack. I dont think there is anything wrong with A very Powerful Stand-alone unit as long as its expansive and hard to get(which it useally is).

haha before the patch, i only had 150 men against war elephants and i still won although they were upgraded and i took 5 casualties cos most of my men were light auxilia and javelins do bonus vs elephants and they charged and were really demoralised and the prinicpes threw their javs and the triarii got hit and 5 died rest got back up and the principes closed the flank and scared the elephants shitless. then i charged the triarii away because they were gonna get ownnnnneddd!!!!. now they're gonna be easier. i did one urban cohort two triarii and one auxilia to take out the armoured ones. i took around 30 casualties. that was a bummer. now its gonna be even easier but defeats the purpose of eles. they should lower their hitpoints by 2 and leave it at that. i think if you get trampled by an elephant you would die, not being knocked over and getting up. being grounded temporarily from a large hit constitutes a reason to get up, but after flying 40 feet should break someone in half.

Getting hit by a bag of bricks in the chest(trampled by an elephant)will probably make the most hardened soldier to stay down for a long LONG while, especially with full equipment including a 15-20lbs segmented mail...might not feel heavy when you stand before the battle, but when you are in the mud trying to get up i think it will feel like a backpack full of lead.
