Box formation

Hello there.

I was wondering about the patches to come and the fact that patrol is coming (yay !).

This hitted me many times but I thought about formations, and, contrary to age of empire 2, I really think that a box formation could be really useful, especially for defending a ball of ranged infantry/siege with spears.

Given the brace/charge mechanic going between knights and spears. This should help a lot to protect agaist multiple angled charge.

What are your thoughts on that ? =)
