My troops are joining other armies?

I was attacked by a Foreigner today, and my alliance sent support like they usually would. We won and all, and afterwards, they retreated their defence troops. The weird thing is, they returned with all of their troops, and some of them had extra men returning with them. For example, one of my members sent 700 for support, but his army is returning with one extra soldier for some reason. The same thing happened with someone else who supported with considerably more, but is returning with about 5 extra. I would post a picture, but like, we all know that for some reason the forum has banned uploads.

So the question is, is this some sort of glitch? Or have soldiers from other supporting members developed the ability to ditch their masters and run away with other people?

    its the new way of preventing starvation

    they ran away from home

    they followed a stronger leader

    the alchemist recruited them to his league of disappearing GGE people

    the shady lady bribed them

    your guards got drunk and didnt catch the spies, now they return to their true masters

    GGE punishes the non ruby buyers again

    new hero: steal X% of your allies troops

    the game decided to kill all of your troops first, and as punishment for you losing men it decided to save the rest by sending them to other leaders

    the RBCs didnt appreciate the demolishing (see your siggy)

    or GGE is just screwed up (again). but nooooo that could never happen could it?

    any other suggestions for what happened? :)

    I think this is probably to do with rounding. When the calculation is done a certain number of troops perish in the attack. This surviving troops are shared out amongst the castles who supported, each according to their %representation of the troops in the battle. Sometimes this will involve rounding up so someone will receive the extra troop. if the total loses were very small, then sometimes someone will get back 1 more troop than they sent.

    I may be wrong, but this is how I have always justified it to myself.

    That's never happened to me. Even when sending support.

    Yeah, no. Otherwise I'd have 70 times the amount of troops I have now.
