Rules Clarification for Pub Battles
You are usually defeated when you suffer 50% losses in Pub Battles. That sounds clear but 50% of what exactly? What if there are reinforcements that have not yet arrived on the field? Do they count? Is it 50% of your entire army combined or 50% of just the forces in play on the field so far?
Count only the forces in play on the field so far. So as new reinforcements arrive, your total strength and 50% loss number goes up. This bolster’s your army. You can fight longer and take more losses now.
