Well, I just finished one of the rummiest and funniest games I ever played against the comp - and after reading this, dare you ever say the CP is so predictable
Settings: large hill country map, for random civs; 2 Egyptian, 1 Shang, little me was Roman.
Reasonable start, got to tool fast, rushed to Bronze (forgot the time) and started routing Egypt 1 with some axemen and chariots. Shang was very quiet so I left them alone. Big mistake (or perhaps not ).
Did I ever lose lots of chariots to those sleek Shang priests! Oh my, the bastards seemed to eat out of their hands. Not just that, those hairy guys converted my STs and Cats as if they were pussycats.
But the craziest thing I ever saw - what a pity I didn't make a screenshot of it - was a priest getting killed by an elephant!!!! An elephant hunted by CP played Shang Villagers in ROR - you try to beat me there. Finally won by invading with hordes of priests and chariots myself and converting every building that my chariots and Catapults (built after their temple was down of course) didn't take down..

what do you think - i suddenly saw an elephant walking to attack in the grey area - so I tore off with some units to see what was going on there and then I saw that Priest getting killed - would you have thought of getting a screenshot at that moment? I was flabbergasted.

Peter, I have never seen a priest mauled by an elephant.

I have seen MANY an elephant of mine converted by a red priest.

And I have secretely wished my elephant could mangle that priest. (But of course, those thoughts are not "nice.")

But I find in your experience a bit of poetic justice for me! Vicariously, perhaps.

Yes, I if you use the War Elephant to get the Priest, you'll most probably find yourself with a few elephants fighting among themselves.

I usually use Juggernauts (I can't really rememeber because I haven't been playing it for quite some time) to attack the Priests while quickly retreating. But it's a risk getting a few War ships bombarding each other, very sickening scene.

What's nortmal? Of course eles will attack when hurt but attack priests - think it over.
And I've never seen CP villies hunt eles in ROR - that's what surprised me most. Such a pity I wasn't there when it happened - I mean I didn't see the start of it because of the fog.

I remember have seeing it a couple of times. For unknown reasons the priest of your opponent start to try to convert the wild ele and the beast kill the priest....

Worse. I worked on a scn recently and the shot is to convert a priest to have one more in the ranks. (This one was incircle by tames lions and there is a swamp everywhere around with some king alligators)

I test my scn, send my two priests to convert the opponent priest. This one turns on himself and start to convert a king alligator!!!!!

Hi Peter!

Don't worry, it's something special to tell. This things happens most of the time in the opponent city. (...the shot that I have seen it)
