Due to the 3 successes per dice for attacker vs 2 successes for defender (w/o cards).

For example in a siege with 5 attacking armies vs. 4 defending on a 3-power province with a fort, a chance to win as a defender is just 16% (averaged from 100k combat simulations).

5 attackers vs 5 defenders on a 4 province (maximum possible defence), gives a 30% chance for the defender, and 26% if there is no fort.

What do you think?

Strategy Cards, Kingdom Cards etc.


You need to really plan ahead and anticipate if you're gonna be attacked, and stack up on these kinds of cards.


Though, I'll only say one thing: Turanian Immortals, nothing like 'em.

Also, ties go to the defender. I don't know how that adds statistically. Also, defender keeps rolling at least the province's strength while defender can go down to two or even one die.


What ends up happening in my games is that the attrition files away a big chunk of the attacker's army. Even if he/she wins the conflict and takes the province from me, he/she'll be very weak and prone to attack from adjacent provinces.
