And Onagers can destroy trees, so if you have enough patience, you can do a pretty sweet surprise attack with them.

Yeah, all the cannons sucked vs units because they were so slow. You also don't even have to dodge them. Just tell your pikemen to engage the cannons in melee. They can't be hit.
It's sort of interesting to play AE3 right after AE2 and notice the huge difference in cannonball movement.
