I wonder if it might be possible that some other factor is at play
here. For example, could the loss of comabat efficiency be greater
in the new version after losing a battle or two. That does seem to
be the case although I'm not confident about that. I've had games in
ED where a whole transport full of infantry couldn't defeat a city
attacking directly from the transport but those aren't common. It
does seem much more common in EDIE.
That wouldn't account for defenders of a city having less chance of
success but could there be other differences of that kind that
could? In that case, even though the code doing the calculations is
the same the data it's using might be different. This is just
speculation on my part. It occurred to me as I was writing the
