The Sons of Raghnall: Battle Statistics

I’m not feeling narratively inspired this week, so I ripped some statistics from the save instead. In particular, casualty statistics for land battles. Let us begin with the most obvious, the kill/loss record:


Kills, losses, ratio:

Note Taira as the surprise winner of the most-deadly contest, presumably due to not getting involved in land wars in Asia against human powers – as far as I can recall, the only time Taira has fought any land wars is against other AI countries, to unify Japan. Their involvement in human wars has been naval. Notice likewise the fantastically low battle casualties of Malaya, for similar reasons. The Aztecs, however, have earned their 2-to-1 kill rate honourably, fighting off Britain and Spain.

Next up, the who-whom statistics: In human/human engagements, who inflicted losses on whom? This has killers down the columns and victims across; so to find out, eg, how many Hungarian soldiers have been killed by Scandinavia (32 thousand, as it happens, versus 9600 the other way; not that anyone should think less of the Hungarians for this, they can’t help being, um, the way they are), go down the first column until you reach SCA, then across until you reach HUN. The numbers are in thousands.

Again with those Aztecs: Britain has the dubious honour of having lost the most soldiers against a single opponent, at 172k, and that opponent is the Aztecs; while conversely the Aztecs have only lost 79k to Britain. Notice also the horrible beating Italy has taken at the hands of Spain, with almost half its total casualties from that conflict; and what’s more, Italy is second-highest in total losses, which is impressive (is that the right word?) considering they’re nowhere near second-highest in manpower or size.

A curiosity: Taira has only lost 2200 men against other humans, Korea to be specific; but has somehow killed 24k Koreans. That’s amazingly lopsided, but does seem to be accurate – looking through the save manually, I see a lot of Taira-versus-Korea stackwipes. Not clear what happened there; the Asians are notoriously closemouthed about the history of their part of the world.

Sometimes this sort of thing is easier to see visually, so here is the same matrix converted into a histogram:

Same organisation, but red means “lots of dead guys” and white means “never fought those guys”. Linear, then logarithmic.

Finally, the number of pixels killed each game year of the campaign so far:

See if you can spot your favourite war. 🙂
