So, how about we have a map game? Or any other kind of forum game for that matter.

Also, in terms of real life- in a straight out fight- who wins- a man with a sword or a man with a spear? Each have same skill level and a similar shield?
one on one I think the spear man wins if he can get the swords man quickly however if the swordsman gets past the tip of the spear the spear man loses. In a formation situation the spear man has advantage until the formation starts to break apart then the swords man tears them up.

googled it and this came up.

That really depends upon numbers, formation, and a whole host of other factions. It might be a good idea to establish some sort of skill/power rating for different types of troops.
Hmm, good idea, i will try to develop something agreeable.

Ok then, i will try to figure out something.

General Sajaru was quite right in suggesting a rating point system for the types of soldiers/tactics/etc. being used. However, I think that including an element of probability in all of this, rather than relying on failed and decisively wrong human judgement, so that we would be relying on a completely objective mechanism to decide the victor.
