I was just playing LAN multiplayer with some friends and one of them was byzantine and made a ****load of cataphracts. They overwhelmed me and couldn't be put down with anything.

How do i beat elite cataphracts?

Or be aztec, fully upgrade eagle warriors, make a few barracks, and spam the **** out of them. Raid a town with them, they take no god damn prisoners.

Camels, also, their expensive, so just cut out your oppenent before he can create them.
Also, archers.
Anyone who says any infantry can suck a dick.

Best game cheat ever in the history of the universe FTW!!!

It made the game not fun anymore though too easy to win.
#15
conquistadors work pretty well - they have a ranged attack to pick off the cataphracts. just concentrate on one at a time. but i haven't played in a while...

But that isn't nearly as fun. Why spend 30 min building up an army of puny horsemen that die instantly if I can create a car with machine guns and simply mow down everything?

Mamelukes, conquistadors, Mangudais, camels, archers, onagers, bombard cannons, scorpions

Just get fully upgraded paladins and spam them,always works for me. Or pikemen I'd assume.
#20
Conquistadors, or even better, the Mongol special unit (name escapes me) or elite marmelukes.
Up The Boro!

Pikemen would be the obvious choice, since cataphracts are mounted. But I'd go with something with more range. Be Chinese, and spam elite Chu Ko Nu. If range isn't your thing be Persian and spam Elite Elephants. Don't build a Wonder. They take too long if you don't have a ton of villagers on it and if you have too many viallgers you don't have enough fighting units.

They're not always fun, I remember a level of the Hunnic campaign that featured the sacking of Constantipole. I spamed them like rabbits, but the AI caught onto what I was doing and spammed monks. Because they don't change colour when they're converted it took me ages to work out what was going on, and it became a huge nucence.
