    Does anybody know a simple forumla to find out the chance of winning a battle given the hitpoints of the two combatants and the attack and defence strengths as well. For example, a calvary
    (6 attack, 3 hit points) attacks my spearman
    (2 defence, 6 hit points). What would be the chance of me winning with my spearman. Since there are from 3 to 8 fights each at 25% for me it would seem complicated unless I made a program to find all values and add them up for me. It would seem like there would be a simple forumla to find iyt out from those 4 values.
