Does anyone know of any utilities where you can save Rise of Rome multiplayer games, thanks

2. Ok ive been wondering this for ages, is there ANY strategy whatsoever where a group of sythe chariots can survive and not get ripped by a hoard of angry armoured elephants (without running away). I ask this cause its happened so often its not funny, after all, the upgrade to sythe is pretty high.

Hmm... I doubt it, even hit-and-run wouldn't work because the elephants have trample, and you would have to get a priest working full time. Perhaps you could use chariot archers...? (hmm... this is when someone should step in with a big table of information)

schythes have trample too and twice the range...you need to surround the elles, or spread them out. Try making running passes at the sides of the elle group if you cannot. Whatever you do, don't get surrounded yourself. Being faster, this should not be a problem for you.

Just keep swarming those dumbos with scythe. Numbers along with the economic factor will win in the end.

P.S. It doesn't hurt to be Egypt when waging a scythe war...lol

Not really, unless you have a LOT of scythes and they have very few eles.
 
Use priests, phalanxes, helos. Most scythe civs have at least one of those, if not then use archers.

you'll both have to be well over pop limit before the dumbos win economically.

Unless those are enemy eles heading for your town, in which case your scythes won't help much.
