So, I played 2 games with the same guy, and he made contariusus, and he just ran to me; broke as much as possible and ran back. So, is this a actual good tactic or not ?; but with their wopping 6.90 speed and 20 attack and arround 200 hitpoints, they have to be good; right ????

Hi flip

I am a Gaia player so I love Contarius Hero. They are extremely effective if you advance through the minor god Theia in Heroic age.

With the following techs they become very strong:
Poseidon's Secret: Increases cavalry speed by 10% and cavalry hack damage by 15%.
Lance of Stone: Contarius heroes gain 15% hack damage.

Also I believe they have a bonus against buildings, stacked with all these upgrades it makes them a very quick siege weapon.

What I like doing as soon as I hit heroic is start upgrading the cavalry line. As soon as I get 8 Contarius hero I send them to enemy TCs and houses/manors to population block them. If they are population blocked for a long time my army can over whelm their army easy.

they are extremely pop- and cost-inefficient - meaning if you see something like this done to you, you could place some towers with crennelations (their entire economy is in these horses, so once they're dead you just win usually) or just attack with all your army (they likely won't have any other army because of how much pop space contarious hero take and these units themselves are very bad in battle so you win if he decides to defend your attack with these)

would katapeltes also be a solid answer ? and would it be worth it to make 1-3 countarious just to raid their goldvillies (and maybe wood villies) and then of course run fast away when his army arrives and then annoy him on the other side.

And would this tactic be a good surprise tactic ?

Anything that fights back is good (aside from archers). Contarius are very, very, very bad in combat, I personally never create them.

In the upcoming ImpMod patch, Contarius will become more effective as a unit:

They will have cost 15 less food, and 40 more gold.
They will also get a small bonus vs Siege (x1.5)
They will have +15% Pierce Armor.
They will have +20 HP (150)
They will have +2 attack

They will be returned to the Heroic Age due to these changes

Tell me what you guys think about these changes
