About the fire traps; I think with the Fortification skill the small units can get the trap up in one turn. Now note that Wu has Fortification AND Divine Fire...

I didn't actually know what rocket tag meant at first. Yeah, it would definitely be a lot of back and forth I think, and getting that first hit would play a major role every time a battle gets going. Cao Cao and Zhang Liao would of course have more than 500 troops, heh.

It would change the dynamics of the game to a degree (like making Fortification a second or even first tier skill and Fortitude would play a larger role overall, as well as Indestructible) and feel more historical, but I don't really see it increasing the challenge per se, and I'm not sure how entertaining it would actually be. I mean, if Zhang Liao is running around with 500 troops and is participating in an attack, his unit will probably get crushed a few times, so he'll keep having to march out again, and he runs a higher risk of getting captured. The getting captured bit might seem like it would raise the challenge factor, but I just think it would be a nuisance more than anything else.

edit: Oh, and I just realized. Riverine warfare would be a nightmare, imagine all the ships you'd potentially have to build to take a port in one of those big vs. Wu battles. :?
