I decided to try to take my combat numbers to a spreadsheet. Here is the combat situation:

Me:

10 Hoplites

1 Ram

Opponent:

No units

Level 2 wall, Level 5 town (5 wall sections)

So calculating on my spreadsheet, I took the following:

1 ram does 18.17 damage on the main section (I marked it at 23% accuracy)

1 ram does 15.21 damage on each of the other sections (I marked it at 77% splash)

10 Hoplites do a total of 90 damage on the main section (I marked it at 90% accuracy)

10 Hoplites do a total of 0.25 damage on each of the other sections (I marked it at 10% splash)

The main section is taken down to 54% in Round 1 with total damage done reading 108.17 damage

The other sections are taken down to 92% Round 1 with total damage done each section reading 15.46

The next round then goes haywire. In Round 2, the main section is taken down to 36%. So instead of another 46% reduction, which would have reduced the main section to rubble, it was an 18% reduction. 3/4 of the other sections were taken down 72%, and 1/4 of the other sections was taken down to 74%.

It doesn't make sense that the ram's 20-23% accuracy damage spreads through the other walls. It looks to me like the main damage spit up and contributed to the other 77-80% splash damage. Furthermore, this splash damage wasn't even evenly distributed. It instead hit 1/4 of the other sections in a reduced manner (2% reduced).

My spreadsheet shows that to get the main section down to 36% would mean a 19-20 damage attack on it compared to the 108.17 damage done in Round 1. This is close, but not exact, to the main section damage of 1 ram (18.17 damage).

I think the probability chance that my original formula was "correct", with the random spreading of main damage and splash damage that you see in Round 2, is

Does anyone know how this works? I decided to try to calculate this for fun (trying to predict future battles) but the formula seems jacked-up.

Also, does anyone know how to get rid of the annoying double-spacing of the text? I have to hold shift and hit enter in order to single space.

Thanks!

*incredibly low*. So unless my original formula is inaccurate, then something mutated in the % allocated.Does anyone know how this works? I decided to try to calculate this for fun (trying to predict future battles) but the formula seems jacked-up.
