Something really odd going on with combats in the recent beta patch. There were tons of fights in the region of Bononia between Bomilcar (commanding my Gaul allies) and Pulcher’s large Roman army. I have noted that the Gauls seem to always retreat very early in a fight before more than a couple thousand men die before this, but this is the first time I’ve seen a death loop of fights fought like this.
The two armies were both about 60k strong and every single battle saw less than 5k or so casualties per side. The first fight was on the 10th and then there was a fight every single day for the rest of the 30 days.
