Attack and Defense ratings

Greetings,
I was wondering if there is any sort of counter-attack to an attack. I.E. when attacking, is a unit's defensive ratings used at all?

That is why a unit has a defensive rating, to defend an attack. The attackers units use their offensive strength values and the defenders units uses their defensive values. Otherwise there would be no point to the defensive value.

(I might have misunderstood your question, please tell me if I have.)

What I meant was: "Is an attacking units defense rating used at all?" EG if someone attacked with 100 spearmen and 100 swordsmen could the spearmans defense vs. horses come into play on the offensive?

Ahh, sorry for the misunderstanding. As far as I know defence in only for defending and is not taken into account for the offence but I see where you are comming from for the query.

Bakie is right. When you are attacking, only the offensive value is used. When you are attacked, only the defensive value is used.
