So basically, in the original game there was no counter for mamelukes. If you're playing a 1000 pop game like we do, paladins are a problem. Halbediers aren't a good counter for them, because you literally had to mass them in 1500 before u could kill a 1000 paladin army. Nations like huns had no chance against mamelukes. So anyway, here's the list of things I changed.
