I just wanted to take a moment and say I am really pleased with the AutoResolver.
Most tactical combat 4x games have an autoresolver, and inevitably something goes terribly wrong. I lose a critical unit or a key part of my army in an "easy fight". My trust in the resolver breaks down, and I have to do every battle in tactical view....which then dramatically increases game time and ultimately makes me lose interest.
So far, I have been very pleased with the resolver. Whenever it says victory or overwhelming victory, I let it resolve. Now on occasion I get some eye brow raising amount of damage...but my units stay up, which I can work with. When it says uncertain, I go into tactical.
This keeps the tactical part interesting for me. I get to wade through the small mobs easily, and get a good fight in once in a while....exactly how I like it!
Thank you SD!
