I have also encountered this just now playing mangudai madness. Attack move sending them 90 degrees away from the direction clicked.

Also continues to be regrouping bug where you click back but they just run straight forward into enemies and die…

I can’t upload my game, even though I’ve had an account for ages, because I’m a ‘new user’ apparently, whatever that means and I don’t feel comfortable sharing my onedrive on a public forum. Not sure why its mad so difficult to report bugs.

I have also encountered this. Instead of attacking the villager I clicked, my scout moved into a different direction and started attacking another villager.

just for clarity, did u use attack move putting the mouse past the enemy units as if ur units had to walk across them to get there? or attack moved somewhere else (wrong usage)

thats another different issue altogether. that problem has been in the game for a long time now and the work around is with the unit you wish to attack, ctrl + right click is the only way they stay on chosen target.

this one is about attack move rather than right clicking a target

this is 0% related to the issue at hand

i have also had the same with patrol, only after last patch

Yes, I put my mouse past the enemy units each other (Red is E3-P2.ai) in those pic above. I wanted to test unit status like MikeEmpires doing.

Hello everyone, thanks for the report. Would any of you have a video and / or record games at hand?
That would greatly help us.

Thank you!

Here (that’s my first video haha. ty for providing a nice experience)

I think this is caused by Attack Move + Stand Ground. When I retested it with attack stance, this bug wasn’t occur. Btw unit who finished attacking with attack move stops in this video, is that fine?

Other bugs with Attack Move I’ve seen are
“light cavalry goes through enemy (no attack with attack move)”
“Mangudai goes wrong direction with attack move”
but it’s rarer than above and Idk how to reproduce in detail, so anyone plz post other videos.
