So I just swapped Dwarf for a second to evaluate power differentials. I converted all my gold cavalry to gold mechs. The conversion rate was 6 gold cavalry for 5 gold mechs, which is a 1:1 ratio. I then swapped back to human, and converted them back to gold cavalry. Except now I am missing 9 stacks of gold cavalry as I went from 215/215 to 206/215.
Has anyone else experienced a loss of units on conversion before? Did the mechs convert back to cavalry with a different cost dynamic so it wasn't 1:1? I was not paying close attention when I converted back, so that is the only thing I can think of. But if it is all supposed to be RSS based, I am pretty shocked I just lost 63,000 blood diamond worth of cavalry because I used the convert feature.
If this is working as intended that is extremely dumb. Equal conversion should not cost me tens of thousands of RSS.
