I know that this has always been a really crappy way to fight essentially guaranteeing losses on your side when you otherwise might get by with no casualties but I feel like its extraordinarily worse in this mod for some reason.  Seriously round 1 of a large fight I can absolutely slaughter the opposition by fighting, even if I sit my guy at the chest and just let the AI run down, but then the second round if I send my guys to fight without me I lose 20 troops and the other side loses nothing. Feels very broken.

Are you playing v0.5.4? I made changes to all troops in that version.

Yes, I am playing 0.5.4 with hotfix 1 installed.

I'll play around with this and take some screenshots of the battle outcomes.

The other day I had like 150 high level troops and got caught by some lord with an army of like 450.  I beat him back to the point where I had like 120 and he had in the 80's and I haphazardly spammed the "send your troops to fight without you" button just to get it over with. He killed 17-20 of my troops each click and he lost none.  I was down to like 35-40ish when I noticed what I was doing. It works if I catch some random bandit with 15 people and use it on them.  I was getting the feeling that it is calculating the leaderless troop assaults chances based on the initial troop forces not the current troops after the first few rounds of fighting.
