Player 1 attacks. Player 2 defends. A is the total value of all of Player 1’s attacking Units’ offense ratings. B is the total value of all of Player 2’s defensive ratings. Players’ losses are calculated according to these aggregate values. If: А = 15,000 Offense and B = 20,000 Defense, then Player 1 loses approximately 55% of Units. Player 2 loses 45% of Forces. These ratios may be subject to change

offense/defense ratio is unbalanced it takes more than double the number of defense units to equal offense

guess it depends on how much you value your defense but IMO the defender always wins if they manage to kill a lot of offense :)

losing offense hurts more unless you buy it back of course .....

That is the raid mechanic. The siege mechanic is very different btw.

In case anyone is wondering, given that defense units have different stats against different troops, the value of the defence is calculated by weighted average on the proportions of the attacking army.

Wow that is a new one.

A legitimate message from what seems like must be a legitimate user (given the original post) and now their account seems to have been hijacked and the message edited.

That is a new level of forum spam posting... not seen that before.

Something very weird going on here though.

Hello!

Our Forum devs are now investigating how this situation could happen.

For now, the recommendation is to change your Forum password to the stronger one, don't share it with anyone and don't click on the long links that can start an automatic download of the virus software to your PC.

I tried to restore the initial post, but I had to submit it from Oberon's name to get the spamming post removed.
