Medieval 2: Total War has an "auto-resolve" feature like many of its predecessors, which I use almost exclusively. However, it's not exactly obvious what contributes to my chances of success. The factors I've identified are:
- Number of Troops
- Type of Troops (Spearman are better than Peasants, etc)
- Command rating of commander
What other factors figure into the "Auto-Resolve" feature? How can I maximize these factors to give me the best chance of winning? Is there anything I would do differently compared to manually playing out the battles?
