in battles i always choose auto battle. to place trust in the system..the fate of my soldiers rest in the foe system's hands. sometimes the outcome is dire where all my men are wiped out. and most of the time, they defeat the enemy. whether its on the continent map or in GE. today all my men were wiped out even though i gathered all who had good attack skills and the enemy whom i thought looked weak in their ranks defeated me in a bloody mess. i aim to win. and when i dont, thats the game..just have to wait till they are healed and try again.
