When I say that I mean the new battles that crop up randomly where you can defend another Empire Province.
If its a fort or a city then it feels more evenly matched and I win most of the time but when its a Minor Settlement battle, unless we're fighting Skaven I almost always lose because my ally gets torn to shreds.
And alot of the time the game will spawn my army behind the enemy so they just completely wipe me out before I even have a chance to form up. Our army should spawn with our ally rather than off the map. Like WTF seriously?!
Is this your experience as well? how are you finding the reinforcement battles?
I think this really drives home the fact that we need minor settlement maps like Total War Attila back. Back in the days when 2 Spearmen and an archer unit huddled up in the right place could take down 10x their number.
Also, something I'd just like to mention: if we reinforce an ally we get diplomatic penalties for trespassing...that's total BS. I've not tested it but I assume the option to hire mercenaries allows you to avoid this penalty? but then 1000 prestige is not worth -10 or -20 diplomatic relations so this whole choice is terrible.
