Chilly weekend, so I'm staying inside. Started a new campaign as Spanish, early/hard. After taking the rebel provinces, I invaded & conqured Corduba and Granada. Almohad's had a civil war, leaving Tunisia in rebel hands, garrisoned by 3 units, one Desert Cav (38 men), and 2 Nubian Spearmen (100 & 97 men). I invaded with 1 Jinette and 2 FMAA. The rebels killed al but 16 of my men, losing only a few men. So the next turn I invaded with 1 FK and 2 FS. Rebels won again, killing most of my men, losing less than half of theirs. I have played both Almohad and Egyptian campaigns, and the Desert Cav and Nubian spears were both weak units for me. But when the computer runs them, apparently they mytsteriously become master jedis. How can this be? I know that the AI gets an edge when you play on hard, but Desert Cav wiping out FKs? Shouldn't have happened. And when I played as the Almohads, the Jinerttes could always outrun my Desert Cav, whereas today, the AI's Desert Cav ran down my Jinettes wiping them out, losing only a couple men.
