When assaulting a castle or town, if I fall before we break down the front door the troops avoid going in the front door. They will use the battering ram to break down the outer door & will go in & break down the inner door, but after that 95% of the troops will wait in line to use the siege towers or ladders even though the front door is easiest. If I don't fall and tell them to attack they will use the front door & easily win, but, as an example, in the current battle I was hit by a ballista while they were approaching the front door. They knocked down both doors and those at the door fought. Then after they died the new troops avoided using the front door. After the initial troops died. I had an advantage of 200 kills to 120. Now, they have 390 kills to 287. 20 troops stand in line to go up the siege tower while ballistas pick them off, but no one is attacking the front door. I could send a save, but any battle where the commander falls it is the same thing. Because of a random ballista shot, instead of my 1k troops losing about 300 and taking this town defended by 600, I will probably lose this battle.
