Baby and the bathwater stuff. I absolutely hope they make drastic improvements to armor/formation/AI but I wouldn't want good features held back for sake of "non-existent balance". As is, positioned ranged is the best way to kill enemies, but sometime they do annoying stuff and it sucks. With Focused fire they're still the best way to kill enemies but now they do less annoying stuff (if managed properly). Of course Inf and Cav need a function like the RTS command system even more as you basically always bleed inf and cav without it, no matter how well you position them some will always run off and do something dum when charged.The problem is archers are op enough as is. So unless drastic improvements are made to armour and formations, granting such a command would make archers dominate even more.
I guess I take issue with the term "OP" because to me this implies there would be some balance and better gameplay if the "OP" thing were removed or adjusted, which is not the case at all for bannerlord. Take away effective ranged damage and you just have a complete cluster **** of impotent units waddling around and trading with each other. Whoopty ****ing doo. AT least with good Ranged you can kill them all. That's not at all to say adjustment aren't needed, but it's much more the other units needed many many improvement in basically everyway.
Anyway, although I also agree with TW's statement that they want the ranged AI to be smart enough to not need to be micro'd, I think the Focus fire suggestion is good too because TBH I don't think they will nail the AI being good enough on it own.
