It is true that when you manage to defend long enough on same spot you can see all kind of strange strategies being used, some are good some are bad.Also there is much more then just numbers, same unit is more expensive to 10k player then to 50k player.When advance resources are not a problem it all comes down to production time.Who ever produces troops faster can afford to lose them faster and on worse "exchange" rate.

Well, Createure, I am a Human so I'm on plains. That's where I am suited. I always consider terrain, that's why I have a mile of swords and spear heading for 500, 0- a FOREST square.
EDIT: Unfortunately for me it's a long journey for me to get to a Plains square, plus I've already lost 1k Knights to the tourney. Ah well.

That's my point. I won't meet you on plains cos that ain't where I'm suited. I'm not pointing out the strengths and weakness of units, those are obvious. I'm pointing out people's sheer stupidity and launching units somewhere blindly and without considering terrain.

Although that is nothing special to dwarf cavs... it is the same for others too... I can produce similar reports of thousands of wasted knights/marshals/deathpacks.
