If 1 is the army control group, pressing 1 twice should move the camera to the bulk of the army (e.g. 50 units fighting together at the front), not to a single unit in the middle of the map that’s being rallied to the frontline.
We need to easily move the camera between our army and our main base. The current implementation makes this difficult.
If you survey Diamond/Conquerer players about this, you will find this is a very common pain point among all of them. Please implement this quality of life fix. Thank you.
I don’t know what the current algorithm is attempting to do, but it certainly isn’t “move the camera to where the most units are”, which is what it needs to be.
If you have 50 archers on the left side of the map and 1 archer on the right side, and all 51 archers are in control group 1, pressing 11 should move the camera to the left side 100% of the time, but that’s not how it’s currently behaving.
i can confirm this has been a major annoyance since the release of this game. aoe2 was nothing like this.
another one that needs immediate addressing is units (villagers in particular) circling around buildings. pathing of units really reflects you developers alright? have some pride. stop doing balance changes, stop doing biome stuff, people adapt to balance changes.
annoyances, bugs should be dealt with first and foremost. peoples real frustration are with issues the game has, not balance and beauty (enchanted grove is not pretty at all).
Hopefully its fixed soon and we dont have to wait till the next big update in 3months.
Another problem i noticed when you add a unit to a qroup, if you add more to it later when you move the units the new ones dont move. Mainly notice it early game and need to press few times to get them all moving
