Extreme newb question: I have played a total of one game of WFG, and that was at least 3 editions ago (1996), but from my reading of 7E rules and the High Elf and Dark Elf army books, I have to know, even knowing it will be obsolete in a month : how can a dark elf army actually fight a high elf army? Always strike first combined with the extra rank of spears able to fight means that anything short of cold one knights will probably lose its entire front rank before getting to attack, break, and be run down. My understanding is DE are not notably better at range or magic than HE, so I am having trouble seeing how a soft shelled army like DE can counter the huge advantage of ASF and the extra rank of spears. I am positive there is an answer, I'm just too green to see it.
