How bout some G O L F

f=(a,d)=>(t='ASPC',(t.indexOf(d[0])-t.indexOf(a[0])+1)%4?a:d)

If I understood the problem correctly, the defender only wins if it is the "previous" element on the list. Hence, I just store a string with the initials in the correct order, check the initial index. If the defender is just before the attacker, it wins.

r=['Archers', 'Swordsmen', 'Pikemen', 'Cavalry'];
s='',r.forEach(e=>r.forEach(k=>s+=`${e} VS ${k}: ${f(e,k)}\n`)),s
