Training doesn't increase number of Units

    I've been busily training units, and I have found that the number of units does not increase. I've done this both with Sword Dancers and Archers. Any thoughts?

    I know I'm not giving a lot of detail, however training units is a pretty basic action. I'm assuming it doesn't need a lot of description.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Your squad size and training size are not the same. When you go to the Army Camp screen, or into battle, each of those numbers next to your units represents squads - not individuals units. When you train any military unit in any of the unit production buildings (barracks, training grounds, mercenary camp), those units displayed in the training queue are individual unit (not squads.'

    To see how many individual units you must train to produce a squad, open your barracks, tab over to the Army Camp. From there, mouseover the unit and towards the bottom of the splash screen, you will see how many units it takes to make a squad.

    On the army camp overview, your unit numbers only change once you have trained full squads

    My question would be; why do different events show a different amount of avail troops to fight?

    Some things like tournaments limit you to specific squad sizes. So (to make a really simple example) if your "actual" squad size is 9 and you have 500 total units, you will have 55.6 squads (that's what the interface will show when you go to fight). But if the tournament limits you to squad size 6, you will have 83.3 squads (500 / 6).

    And ... each province in the weekly tournament has a "fixed" squad size for you for the duration of the tournament .. unless you take a squad size upgrade during the week. Each round, the enemy size will increase by 15% while your size stays the same for that particular province. The enemy starts at roughly 85% of your size in round 1.

    I'm not quite sure where we start but the size increases steadily until around province 16 or so a full squad per stack is committed.
    There are a few outlier provinces that have significantly larger squad size commitments along the way as well.

    For tournaments our squad size starts at 5% of our normal squad size and goes up 5% per province. So at province 10 your at 50% of the world map squad size, by province 20 it is the same, and by province 40 in a tournament your at double the world map squad size.

    There is some exceptions to the starting squad size of 5% if your very early in the game, I think the minimum squad size is 6. So very on the formula above isn't exact but it doesn't take long until thats what it does.
