How to strengthen Delhi tower Elephant?

【My suggestion is that all Elephant attacks have AOE damage. And able to move forcefully, pushing away soldiers blocking the way】
When the Age of Empires 4 game first came out, no one knew how to play it. At that time, the Delhi war elephants were always considered too powerful.
But now everyone can play this game, and Delhi’s war elephants have never appeared in competitions. When the elephant reaches the enemy camp, there must be enough time to counterattack. Unable to conduct a raid like a knight. They cannot pursue the enemy like cavalry, on the contrary, they will be pursued and killed by any type of troops. And a cavalry shot that moves incredibly slowly can be easily killed with a few knights or spearmen. Only swordsmen and archers can defeat tower elephants. On the frontal battlefield, if the enemy does not concentrate their firepower to eliminate the tower elephant. The attack power of the tower elephant is not OP either. I would rather build a castle or a handgun than think about tower elephants.
{ 帝国时代4游戏刚出来的时候大家不会玩。那时候德里战象一直被认为太过强大。
但如今大家都会玩这款游戏了,德里的战象从未出现在比赛中。当大象到达敌方阵营的时候,必然有足够的时间进行反击。无法像骑士那样,进行突袭。也无法像骑兵那样追击敌人,相反的会被任何兵种追击上,并且被击杀。而一个移动无比缓慢的骑#,##可以用几个骑士或者长矛兵轻松击杀。只有剑士和步弓手打不过塔象。而正面战场,假如敌人没有集中火力消灭塔象。塔象的攻击力也并不OP。我宁可建造一座城堡,或者一门手推炮,我也不会去考虑塔象。}

Agree !
IMO elephants should have either aoe dammages or some kind of debuff like camel aura toujours others units represanting terror they inspire on Battlefield. At the moment i think there aren’t cost effective

Give War elephants the cataphract Trample ability. Meanwhile FIX the Trample ability to be able to home in on a moving target.

Lastly make the recharge time for the elephant’s version of Trample be like 40s. And lastly make it so the charge speed of Trample is capped at 1.94-2 tiles per sec.

Current standard War elephant charge is so slow you can literally kite that mechanic with footman… so drop the standard war elephant charge for the homing ability version of Trample.

What unit is better suited for an effective Trample mechanic than the War :elephant:??

Maybe add a rampage mechanic as an elephant loses health they move and attack faster. if their health goes below 10% health they attack closest enemies regardless of the player’s commands.
