Re: Tactic vs Elephants

I second the advice to throw javelins at the elephant. I think of elephants as good HF who disorder all nearby cavalry, but are vulnerable to missiles and pretty useless once cohesion breaks down. I just beat someone with an army involving 3 or 4 units of elephants, and clicked out before I wrote "...
