Hi, when I'm resolving battles with me in charge of Mordor in the Middle-earth map, when I prompted to select a unit to lose, and I have Nazgûl in the field, that is the default. It makes very little sense for Mordor's best and most expensive unit to be the first to take the axe. Whatever other units are in the field, Orcs should be the first to go, I think. Then more expensive / better units in ascending order.

    My triplea version by the way: 1.3.2.2-2

    I'm using the Ubuntu package.

    I noticed also that this issue crops up with Haradrim war elephants as well; they are very valuable but the loss dialogue suggests them as the first to go.

    Another issue is that, at least with Nazgûl, the dialogue looks ... wrong ... but that might be a different ticket.

    I can confirm that a peculiar bug in the loss dialogue also takes place with the war elephants.

    Nazgul and war elephants have 2 hit points, and therefore can absorb 1 hit without dying. That is why they get listed first.
    You will find that after they absorb that first point, they become last on the list to die.
