That might depend on how the Bactrian camel was flying past. Which might also count points toward a parade being weird.

How could it possibly be 'better than before?'

This time BOTH types of camels and a Parade of hot Sabaean Princesses will be present ?

Has anyone figured out a reliable counter-camel tactic?  i.e. good units or army comps that will stop an AI's camel stack?  I swear those humped bastards are the bane of me, they mop the floor with my heavy infantry and equivalent cavalry.

I also can't believe I'm seriously asking for "counter-camel tactics"...  Damn I love this game  :2funny:

Camels can be really sneaky.
In Brazen Chariots, a british armoured brigade was going into lager, when they got the message, "Forty enemy tanks approaching from the north."
Naturally, everyone started going nuts, preparing for an Afrika Korps attack, when another radio message came in, "Correct my last, forty enemy camels approaching from the north."
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

Those smug bastards walk all over my regular infantry and phalanxes.  Perhaps Carthage just is not well-equipped to deal with such an advanced weapon of war.

They are sneaky. They like to hide behind the Elephants, then charge when you look the other way.  #:-) I used to work with a camel and he taught me this trick.

Charlton Heston once told Johnny Carson that in his experience, camels were the most dangerous animal to work with.
They'd smile at you and then try to bite your knee off.

I agree. I rode one in Israel and have teeth like T-Rex and can turn their head around almost 360 degrees.  :o  Plus, they HATE Hump Day jokes.

That's just on TV. They also can spit from both ends. They're SO ugly, each one has to be blindfolded in order to breed with each other. Even drunk.
