I was recently attacked by 120 men against 127 of my own.
The first part of the battle on the walls, the attacker appeared to lose double to my own losses. However; by the time the battle reached the keep - the attacker was down to 51 men and myself 81.
The make-up of these troops was roughly similar (mixtures of Macemen, Bowmen, Crossbowmen). Admittedly I had some fodder militia-like men (the guys with pitchforks) in there - but my main troops still outnumbered his main combatants.
I lost all 81 - and the attacker only lost 15!!!
This looks completely out of sorts with what you might expect; from the numbers and troop makeups; and considering his men must have had a gruelling time fighting over the walls to even get to the Keep!
This was a substantial heavy loss at the Keep, and I am significantly surprised by it.
From my losses in numbers, I initially thought he must have higher-level troops to have so over-awed my own; but when they looked the same levels/types - it just doesn't seem to make sense.
What kind of sense is this??
Anyone any comments?
Does these odd outcomes arise often?
