If something like this was implemented I think that "looting" should happen after combat. So once you have won the skirmish, successfully sieged the castle , defended your castle , etc. You can choose to have units equip looted gear from the enemy dead or more resources. Make the player determine whats they want more... More well equipped troops or more resources to raise more troops, build up your castle , research tech or w/e . I don't think that looting gear should be race specific persay, but some races like elves might not loot certain things, example an elf wouldnt want to wear smelly , heavy , ugly orc armor...right?
i agree. u have to make them loot the bodies, and after the match u can equip whatever fancy you. the gear will have to been obtained by the opposing combatant and you will not loose ur gear from loosing a skirsmish.
Would make the good geared people more desirable to beat, so they would share the load!
