Just learning the game, and for some reason my brain has stuck trying to calculate out the simplest of battle odds

If an attacker has 7 strength and the defender 8. What odds do you use on the combat results table. 1:1 or 1:2 as the defender has more than the 1 ratio?

Apologies if this is a very stupid question, my brain seems to get tripped up on the simplest of questions! yuk

I am enjoying my first play through but am on the fence at the moment. I didn't like the FAB series as there was just a myriad of extra rules that, for me, got in the way of a fast playing game. At the moment this seems the same but I am sure it will improve as more or less all the information you require is on the board, the actual rules set should, I hope, prove to be much simpler.

Thanks, and apols again for what is a very simple stupid question!

1:2 - always round fractions down.

Enjoy the game!
