:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


During battles like cavalry vs archers part of my cavalry often stay instead attacking.
I thought i missclick and make them “stay ground” or some pathing troubles or some patrol issue.

Today i have a case:

  • 100% sure attack mode (checked during the battle)
  • Right click attack, no patrol, no “attack in move”
  • Lots of free space
  • Archers are sure in visibility range
    And cavalry stops after some first kills.

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create big stack of archers (30+)
  2. Create big stack of cavalry (20+)
  3. Put cavalry into “stay ground” mode
  4. Bit micro left-right.
  5. Put cavalry into “attack” mode
  6. Let knights attack archers

Part of cavalry will stop at some moment.

HI @CeratedCupid745 !

Thanks for this, we are already tracking this issue!

Seems sometimes this happens even before the battle.

Units were in “stand ground”, I changed it into “aggressive stance” (double checked during the battle), units just stand until I right click to attack. Autofocus fails.

This is a very annoying, game-changing bug and there has not been a fix for a month.
Could you tell us when it will be fixed?
