1. When an enemy army is about to attack your city/town you can see how strong they are (attack rating) but, there is no way to see how strong a players forces in town are, their combined attack rating isn't shown anywhere!!
2. You can get trapped on an isolated peninsula, blocked(AI Player towns, strong, creature army, etc.) from the rest of the land mass and there is no way to move your armies over water. This happens a lot on small/medium random maps. The game still needs some way to move over water, boats, portals, bridges, underground passages etc!!!
