Are you with other AI lords or is this just your own party? I've been told by devs that when you switch preset formations for your troops they are the only ones who follow that assignment even when you are the king of a faction and leader of that army. So AI lords cav will always be in group 3 and not fall into your new assignments.Has anyone else noticed cavalry randomly splitting into other groups in battle?
For example, on the party screen I've put my cavalry units in what I consider to be their appropriate groups, a few in 'Heavy Cavalry' (group VIII), others in the 'Light Cavalry'(group VII), and the rest in 'Cavalry'(group III). At the beginning of a battle and whenever I give them movement orders they all just get mixed up, troops randomly splitting from one group to join another and vice versa, as though the AI is trying to make two equally sized groups. It messes up my whole set up.
Does anybody else experience this?
Do I agree with this decision or lack of implementation, no. If you are the leader of an army all AI lords troops should follow your formations.
