The outnumber perk looks at units participating in battle, regardless of strength.

Disregarding any OP/DP mods:

If 1,000 Overlords invade 800 Knights, the Overlords count as 6 OP each instead of 6, since 1,000 is greater than 800. — (In this example, the Kobold wins because the Overlords provide 6,000 OP against the 5,600 DP from the Knights.

  • Ice Boulder cost changed to 775 platinum, 110 mana (from 800 platinum, 110 mana).
