Army retirement has been switched OFF for the time being. There is to be a
new proposal for the retirement mechanism - it will be posted on the Elders
BB before it is switched on, in case of any objections. The system will
work as follows: troops will have a twenty year lifespan but any losses
in battle during those twenty years will come off the due-to-retire figure
as priority. This means if your army was due to retire 1000 and you had
lost 1200, you would see zero retirements. Any questions, direct them to
Meantime, to repeat, ALL retirement is now off.
