View Full Version : Question about troops

06-17-2008, 05:06 PM
I'm not sure I understand their purpose, exactly. From what I can tell, I'm guessing when an ally AI officer goes up against an enemy officer, their number of troops acts as a sort of stamina meter, so the more troops = the longer they can stay in the battle.

As in most Warriors games, I do most of the work myself, and pretty much just use allied officers as decoys to avoid getting dog-piled. How does the number of troops affect the character I'm controlling? I'm about half way through my first scenario, and after most battles I replenish my troops, but when I don't, I don't seem to have any harder a time winning battles.

Would be grateful if anyone could set me straight. :)

Sorry if I wasn't very clear! What I meant is, every officer has a certain number of troops under their command, and when you go into battle, in the top-right corner there's a tally of how many troops your army has against the enemy's. For example, 20000 v 15000. I just have a hard time working out how this affects the battles, exactly. The game seems to make out it's an important factor, but I can't tell the difference whether I take zero troops into battle or 60000.

A larger number of troops seems to just help other allied officers take over bases faster or not die from enemy officers.

Also, an officer with no troops will be captured if he's defeated, instead of retreating and coming back. An officer that returns to battle loses a set amount of his troops to do so.
