Yeah, skirms are really good vs conqs because conqs take full cav archer bonus damage.
Camels are also a cost effective counter, more mobile but less resource efficient than skirms.
For future reference, monks (with good micro) and guard towers are also viable.
The real problem with conqs isn’t their military prowess, though.
It’s that they 3-shot vills while being as mobile as a cavalry archer and having as much armor as a knight.
Good on you on learning from your personal experience, btw, that’s a surefire way to improve.
