Request to improve one of the most annoying ai feature in aoe3

One of the most annoying feature is lack of unit formation to lock artillary in bombard mode . This just frustate most that u task ur artillary to attack another unit and they just change mode at wrong time and get rekt . Specially annoying when u rmivto culverin bs culverin fight , ur culverin try to change mode for a sec and bammmm they will get hit by enemy culverin first and u lost .

I request to developers to add unit formation to artillary to lock them in bombard mode , or an option to disable auto mode change by artillary .


Yes, this is a good point. Although the behavior is the same in legacy game, artillery is known to randomly pack up in the middle of fights. There is a lot of room for improvement here.
