I have been trying the battle calculators - entering the information manually for each side and they work well. I think the problem many are reporting has to do with automating the input into the calculator. Is it a select, copy, paste from a source? The comments in the box seem to indicate that works, I've simply not found the proper information to copy and paste yet.

It would be great to register on the site and have it know armies from prior battles entered, then adjust number of troops and commander stats update. Then it would simply be paste in the terrain and defending army info - for example scraped text from a scouting run on the target. 

Perhaps we can output something entered manually - for example in CSV format - which can then be pasted in as input on a future calculation?

This input doesn't work: 
Army: A pack of Brown Bears
Troops:Adolescent Grizzlies Adolescent Grizzlies28
Troops:Adult Grizzlies Adult Grizzlies3
Troops:Bear Cubs Bear Cubs2
Troops:Enraged Kodiaks Enraged Kodiaks2

Here is the code for the "Underworld" units:

// Underworld
units["Underworld"] = new Array();
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Hellmaws", _infantry, 23, 15, 11, 15, 15, 40, 8, 4));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Behemoths", _infantry, 34, 22, 17, 22, 22, 50, 9, 6));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Hunters", _cavalry, 34, 15, 20, 20, 20, 0, 20, 6));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Deatherunners", _cavalry, 60, 20, 25, 25, 25, 75, 22, 8));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Firesingers", _ranged, 17, 23, 23, 23, 14, 20, 8, 4));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Demons", _ranged, 27, 36, 36, 36, 18, 30, 10, 6));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Imps", _spear, 9, 13, 6, 13, 20, 10, 8, 2));
units["Underworld"].push(new Unit("Impalers", _spear, 17, 20, 10, 20, 34, 10, 8, 4));

The battle calculators are not 100% accurate because the ones I've seen do not take into account crafted items. Also the extra commander specific bonuses are not included - 15% charge for T2 cav for example. But this just means that more troops survive than expected 

The battle calculator I clicked does take into count commander specific bonuses also they can take into count items if you know what you are doing. in true all battle calculators are up to 99% accurate when it's just the raw numbers.

As Fiona said, I have never used the battle calculator as well. From day one of playing I was attacking things and never let the farmville players advice from GC affect the way I wanted to play. Just make troops and kill them off.

That won't work for a new player who can't afford so many troops. The outdated calculators give me an idea of the forces I need, but it would be neat if we had a working one.
