Your comments were very well expressed and quite valid. There seem to be some people on the forum that drank the kool aid and will defend whatever the developers do or not do without even trying it out and simply because "they said so." Personally, I completely agree with you. In most games there is a mechanism to avoid totally unbalanced fights/duels/battles, e.g: for every 10% that your power is higher than mine when you fight me, any resources that you might have gotten from me will be reduced by 10% and the damage to your units will be increased by 10%. Art of Conquest is one of the few that does not have any such mechanisms and that's why it is rife with bullying and if we want to play, we HAVE TO do whatever the players with the most power want (mind you, I could stay in my castle in the capital without moving for 6 months just collecting resources and upgrading my troops until I have 200K. Oh joy! )
