Catapult units still fire at will regardless of Stand Ground stance

Game version:

  • Build: 38862
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating system: Windows 10


Catapult units (by land and water) still automatically attack when enemies are on sight, despite Stand Ground being used.

Reproduction steps:

  1. Get either a Stone Thrower or a Catapult Trireme, and apply the Stand Ground stance.
  2. Bring it near an enemy unit or building.


Stone Thrower, Catapult, Heavy Catapult and Big Bertha; all attacking with Stand Ground ON: CSGB

Juggernaught and Flying Dutchman attacking with Stand Ground ON (this bug also applies to Catapult Trireme, but in this scene, enemies were too far away from it): CSGB2

This is how it should work. You are confusing “no attack stance” with “stand ground”. Units do not move or attack if they are on “no attack stance” ,but if they are on “stand ground” they attack if enemy comes either in their range or in melee case next to unit so it can hit it.
