I am VERY annoyed that my 22,000 gold caravans with enhanced soldiers STILL being destroyed by Looters. This happens many Times. not just once. I watched a caravan running from looters into a mountain trap (ravine) and the following battle SEEMED to be based on numbers only ? no quality. In Player battles, Looters rout quickly, in AI battles, Looters don't seem to rout ???? I don;t have access to the AI battle code so I'm not sure ?

* More info *

My Caravan had 30 soldiers - 1 Infantry, 20 Ranged and 9 Cav. The opponent was probably 37 looters, trapping my caravan against a city wall ?? (hide around wall corner?). The battle should have gone like this - looters attack, my ranged open up, killing enough for looters to rout ! What probably happened - Random number generator farted gracefully.. and gravefully, killing my caravan ..

Please fix.

No saved game just before battle. Too many random events for caravans and bandits to recreate with previous saved game.

Just check the source code, Or put the source code here, we'll check it.

Why ?? It's a source code formulae issue, not a data issue.

If you don't want to examine the code then let me.

37 looters should never beat 30 advanced caravan troops.

Ok, I've sent a email with the attached SAV file - DestroySeaRaiders.sav

The Caravan to watch is VARIC heading for Poros, hopefully it will be attacked by a looters army near Poros.

Another caravan destroyed by Looters ..

Players should have the ability to setup their own caravans - solder numbers and quality.

QA team noted that a bandit party that consists 72 members can win when attacking a caravan of 30 members. IF you have a save file just before the battle commences please let us know.
Players need to be able to setup their own caravans .. and / or, be able to control the battles as the caravan leader.

It should be fairly simple to allow players to fight a caravan battle.
