Troop facing direction when moving

Users who are viewing this thread


At the moment, whenever you move your troops they face their target position and potentially expose their backs to the enemy. It's very inconvenient when you try to make small adjustments to formation and makes them look like they have very little interest in self-preservation.

I think it would be better if instead, when moving over short distances, they would keep facing the enemy. Additionally, tight, slow-moving formations (shield wall, square, circle) would probably work better if each soldier always kept their individual facing direction when moving.

A few examples where this would be useful:
- Adjusting formation when under archer fire.
- Slowly retreating the troops when under attack.
- Moving pike formations without losing their effectiveness.
