In a duel of archers the winner is not usually the one with best bow or more arrows, but the one with more armor. (unless one seriously out-ranges the other)Hah hah armor!
Best archers are the ones that are staying still and shooting, worst are the ones trickling towards the enemy and getting slaughtered.
Vlandian, Aserai and Battanian caravan guards have same stats and gear as normal T5 units, now the other factions, specially Sturgia do have some beastly caravan guardsSeriously a AI caravan is tougher then most lord parties of equal size.
I will probably change that in a mod... but again i dread the long hours it will take...I believe is that way because there is no upgrade tree. They are created by and for caravans, and even though you can take them into your army / convert or receive via defeating someone who attached a caravan, you can't upgrade them.
Its very disappointing indeed, modders are starting to fix it, but so far I haven't seen any mod that makes all the checks on troop type.Shouldn't these values be more complex?
What? Is your game modded so every terrain is 100% plain with no features?Why should they be? Real battles aren't.
