I see 20+ threads a day posted with "tell me why I lost pwz??" and they show how they have a larger army, higher level, better units, better generals, etc, etc... and the answer is the same EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Battle Calculations:

Attack/Defense - This part of the equation is weighted big time in the calcs. In other words you could have 501 army units and battle someone with only 50 battle units and lose if your attack/defense stats are terrible.

Example:

Some 1337 (elite) people I've seen here typically have attack stats between 500 and 800 if they are offensive minded. I'm assuming that if they are defensive then their defense stats would be between 500-800. Keep in mind these are people at level 100+ so if you are level 20 don't wonder why you don't have 800 stat points yet LOL.

What you take to battle:

1. Your attack/defense stats

2. Up to a maximum of 501 army units.

2a. This depends on how many Castle Age friends you have. Your # of friends = the number of slots available up to a max of 501.

2b. If you have 501 friends but only have 100 army units then you only bring 100 to battle. Think of friends as # of slots available and it is up to you to fill the slots.

3. Your best generals up to a max of 100 (1 general per 5 army units).

4. Up to 501 of your best att/def rated "items". Items are defined as: armor, weapons, shields, helmets, rings, amulets.

4a. If you have a shield that is 1/10 (11 total) and you have a sword that is 5/5 (10 total)... it is a good guess that the shield is what you bring to battle...not the sword. This is conjecture at this point cuz the mods here are still testing the formulas to check for sure. However, the best guess is highest "combined" value is taken to battle always. If you have 501 units but only have 400 items then you will bring all 400 items regardless of att/def value.

5. Up to 501 of your best magic items. Auras, lightning bolts/storms, fireballs/firewalls, and charms are all considered magic.

Duel Calculations:

What you bring to the Duel:

1. Your Attack/Defense Stats (most important part of the calculation)

2. Your best general (combined stats)

3. Armor

4. Helmet

5. Weapon

6. Shield

7. Amulet/Ring

8. Magic
