I'm missing a lot of infra, but am close to 100% military. Right now, at C36 and with a score of 6,438.07, I can hit a C22 with a score of 5,044.50, who is also close to 100% military. I'm 60% stronger, because that's how many cities I have in relation to him (and thus, how much more military I can bring to the table), but I only have 20% more score.
There's a disconnect mechanically between military power and how score is calculated. Maybe we should look at changing how score is calculated.
The basic formula right now of downdeclaring 25% below seems fair to me, especially because whales can be attacked by 75% up. I do not think that it's fair that I can hit a C22 while I'm full military at C36. I think score formulas need to be altered in some fashion.
