why's that when i auto resolve and win half of enemy army gets away and my army has irrational casualties and if i lose with auto resolve my army is completely destroyed? it leaves me to question on what logic this system operates and what are the factors that define the outcome of auto resolved battle? in past games if you put spearmen loaded army against army that had lots of cavalry you'd win with serious advantage equally if you fielded cavalry against archers and on and on here though there's no real difference as far as i've seen. there was this one battle where i won huge battle against 2 stacks of enemy and then went after survivors one had 4 cavalry units in it and other had 3 artillery and 5-6 line infantry i was pretty tired so i decided that i'd let AI decide that my mostly intact full army would have no problem dealing with bunch of deserters and what i got my army was crippled for good remaining cavalry units did so much damage that half of my units just weren't any good. long story short 90 men caused 360 casualties. well this was only once and was very extreme case but still i don't trust auto resolve much.
