    I'd be willing to bet money that he selected the wrong attack type (probably abduct; as Chris121 notes it's painfully easy to confuse the two).

    Assuming he made all his hits within a few minutes, he selected abduct, I just reverse engineered his attack times. The only way you could get a 1.2 hour difference between a trad and ambush is if your base attack was ~5.5 hours.

    thanks for all your replies guys. That might be it.. switch ambush and abduct.. you get simillar names, simillar attack times and just f* up. Happens.

    @Artist: are you able to find out roughly the following:

    (a) did he have rax?
    (b) any other attack time mods - ritual?
    (c) did he make the 3 hits that are close together at the same time

    and also (d) did he + or - any hours from his other attacks?

    Would like to double check that the abduct explanation actually does make sense.

    do the returning armies horses not give 2 points of defense each?

    No, they do not. As the one conducting the ambush you may count sent horses as raw offense though.

    If your ambush attack time is 7.71 hrs, a TM should take you 10.28 hours, which is roughly 2.5 hours difference. A plunder, mass or abduct would take you 8.99 hours which is roughly 1.2 hours diff.

    Looking at the difference in attack times, I get the feeling that what was sent was not an ambush. Just my thoughts.

    Abduct mis-selection is the likely reason. If you have a 100% som of the target before and after the hit you could check if army home/out lost troops to confirm.
