Switch horse archers and cavalry at the start of battle

Not a rocket science: cavalry defends no-shield side of shieldwall, HA are trying to deliver arrows to no-shield side of enemy.

In the game we have reversed situation presumably because of HA AI troubles. But if this is not the issue, please switch them or add a switchbox for all of us who are using HA not as f4 f1 f3, which is may be better with right flank HA, but in manual mode.


In addition, F4 sometimes addresses HA as "INFANTRY!!" in the field battles.

should the devs say something like a "sucks" or "interesting" if they add the whole sub-forum called suggestions? rhetorical question

I believe it's this way because Horse Archers cannot fire on their right side so they're automatically lined up with opposing infantry on the left to provide easiest access to using their bows without having to make janky movements to be in position to fire.

If you have any companions in formations that aren't infantry it automatically changes that formation to infantry which is annoying and probably should be fixed. (I don't know if it actually affects the AI commanders performance of the unit which would be a significant oversight if so.)
