It's a "percentage" system, like AOM. The difference is how the armor percentages are incremented by technologies.

Example:

Level 1 armor is 10%. That means that the unit receives 90% of the damage directed at it. To reduce that damage by another 10% (+1 armor level), you don't increase armor to 20%, you increase it to 19%, 9 being 1/10th of 90.

Why does a unit with armed with spears have hack attack? Is it something balance related?

Will the AI actually hold positions when in battle or will it just erupt into a big pile of crap ?

No offense..I just mean I seen lots of cool
formations in games that just end up that way in battle.

Description

"Exponential Armor" is the exciting new armor paradigm in the game. Each additional level of armor reduces damage taken by 10%.

This means, if you have an armor tech (e.g., "Silver Shields") that adds +1 pierce armor to all units, it will reduce the pierce damage taken by all units by 10%, regardless of how much pierce armor each unit started with.

This helps with balancing and ensures a tech doesn't affect different units differently, unless intended to do so.

It's also just cooler to say "+1 Armor Level." ;)
