Alright, does anybody know how the current battle mechanics work or are supposed to work? From what I have seen and experienced, the game heavily favors an invading army. Most recently, my civilization was invaded. We started off about equal, they had maybe 20 more points than we did starting off. I switched to a fortify position on my troops for a round in order to prevent them from dealing too much damage. Then switched to Heroic stances during the first round of combat thinking there were not many troops killed so we should have a turn. Well, the opposing army got an extra attack. I figured it was OK since they invaded. My civilization got to attack after 3 rounds of them destroying my troops, when they did not outnumber us by much to start with. Well, later rounds I ordered a retreat since the opposing army was getting 12 and 13 attacks with no sign of letting up even though we still had over half the points left. Their point total was around 550 and ours was about 285.
Any ideas on how the battle mechanics work? I enjoy CivWorld, but don't know if it is worth it when battle mechanics seem so unbalanced.
