It's always good to know how a fight works, whether you fight ants or spiders...
Attack and defense are calculated at the same time.
Attack damages correspond to : ants number x (attack points + weapon bonus)
Defense damages correspond to : ants number x (defense points + weapon bonus)
Actually there is... There's an advantage for outnumbering your opponent.
If the assailant kills all defenders (or predators) in one shot, and if he does more damage than 50% of the minimum to kill all defenders, the defense only replies with 50% of his strength.
If the assailant does twice the damage required, the defender only replies with 30% of his strength.
If it does three times (or more) the damage required, then the defender only replies to 10% of his strength.
On the report you see the damages you normally do, then your bonus is shown into brackets.
Easy : the weakest die first. The order is the same as the order on the Queen page.
Ants can improve in their own class. For example, a soldier can become a top soldier.
This experience can come from any fight (hunting or attacking), and will be proportional to the difficulty of the fight.
