Although this calculator was written by Tensmoor it is the result of a lot of work by a lot of players who have spent many hours calculating how things work.
It was inspired by a discussion between Sene and Hucbold who proposed differing methods of applying the various bonuses that can be applied to the troops taking part in a combat. I decided that the best way to get an idea of which was right was to create a calculator that shows the results of both methods side by side.
There are known problems with the either the published stats or the in-game calculations for several crafted items where we are unable to correctly predict the casualties - this calculator cannot solve those.
Only commanders can be equipped. This will probably be changed at some point in the future.
It doesn't allow for Prestige, Biome College or Wall bonuses.
Whilst I've tried to make this 'mobile friendly' it is not perfect by any means. As I learn more about this area I'll try to improve it.
Many others who offered help, support and encouragement in GC and PC.
