I am absolutely a noob. But you don't have to have ever played this game to understand why being at war with multiple entities hurts your own war efforts against any one target. Those stats would be different (for better or worse I won't speculate though I have my suspicions) if it was just Kashmir vs Legion. And, lest you mistake me for making excuses for Kashmir, this is equally true of them vs yourself as well. You would have to weigh your stats against who is at war with who, the respective sizes of those alliances etc. With your reasoning any small alliance could join any dogpile, hit a much larger alliance, hold up their numbers and say "we can kick their ass" despite the fact they would be absolutely crushed if it was just them vs the larger alliance.
