Hello, I know that war units have health defence and attack and cenrtain bonuses against certain enemies but how exactly does defence and attack work since some units have like 4 helath and 35 attack and 1 defence it makes no sense to me, it seems like all units should be destroyed at one hit and they are not, thanks

Unlike almost all other games, KaM fights are not "hit reduces enemy hp by its damage", but the "hit is a chance to take one hp off". With that in mind, 1-4hp is plenty enough for a long fight between 2 unlucky units.

Funny story: one time, in one of the earlier versions of KaM Remake, one of my friends and I were playing a 1v1 on Across the Desert.
We were both exploring with our Scout, until we happened to meet each other near the center of the map (we don't really like the peacetime feature).

For the lulz, I ordered my Scout to attack the other one, and they legit duked it out right there until they both starved to death. :lol:
