This is becoming tedious. I was attacked by a lot of things, not just archers. There were axemen, horse archers, war elephants... I said it was a long war, and I lost a huge amount of units both attacking and defending. I didn't lose 77 units to a pair of archers in an open field as you seem so fixated on suggesting that I said. I made the point about the archers because I lost a few swordsmen in an open field to a small bunch of archers, and I was pissed off. That's it. It wasn't the focal point of my post. The point was that I was mauled by the RNG. I had the worst run of luck that I've ever had in any game. I lost units in battles that I never should have lost, over and over again. I built and whipped units for ages and sent in wave after wave of them, only to get beaten again and again. But apparently, this can't happen... ever. As you've pointed out, you've played far too much Civ to entertain this as a possibility, and as the resident authority on effective unit stacking and randomness, you have decreed that this cannot be so. You're entitled to your opinion, but if you want to be obtuse, then fine, be obtuse. But at least pull your head out of your backside long enough to read what I originally posted carefully before calling me a liar.
