Thread: When to use the battle autoresolve option

    Default When to use the battle autoresolve option

    Do you frequently use the battle autoresolve option? And why or why not? In my case at least I wouldn't use it if the prediction says I'm going to lose about half of my army

    Default Re: When to use the battle autoresolve option

    I use it occasionally rather than frequently, because I enjoy playing the battles. I use it mainly when the odds are decisively in my favour, for example when I've defeated an army but not destroyed it, and the remnant retreated. In that situation, it doesn't seem worth it to deploy my army just to kill a handful of enemies. Sometimes I use it when I'm caught up in the sequence of events in a campaign, have limited time to play and want to know what happened next.

    I feel like the battles are the fun part of the Total War games. For country management I prefer Europa Universalis, but when you combine the country management of Total War games with the battles, it becomes waaay more interesting. Personally I play out slightly less than half of the battles, especially when the odds seem to be heavily stacked in my favor.

    I only use it when I am pressed for time or if the battle is completely one sided in my favor. It's best to be avoided in general though, as autoresolve is a quick way to kill off your cavalry units.

    Maybe the autoresolve option should be used only if the prediction says you're goint to lose only about 10 % of your army

    I think that happens if you choose the agressive stance

    Autoresolve has been killing my cavalry since Rome 1
