Is it just me or does anybody notice that the predicted damage ratings the computer gives you totally lie? Like when fighting on the East Front - I'll be thinking about attacking some russian infantry and it will say "5:2" - then I proceed with the attack and it will practically always end up being "2:5" - @#$%^!!! I've done a lot of that in this game. I can't afford to take losses like that on the East Front with just a dribble of oil. Is the AI programmed to increase your losses if you are doing well? I know some games have that.

5:2 means the attacker has advantage so mean the defender should take higher casualties. The odds is not a casualty estimator but rather a "strength ratio". Some battles contain sequences with shock and other that mean a even odds actually could favour normally the defender but sometimes even the attacker.

The AI uses the same rules for combat as players.

Check out here:

If you scroll down there are links to documents that explain the combat system in detail. I agree the odds indicator is incredibly frustrating, especially when you come from PG2 which is much closer to the actual result.
