We need your feedback to influence our decision on the Garrison Army function. Garrisoning Armies it the main cause of units vanishing and other related bugs. We have tried to fix it numerous times, and while we did improve it it might takes us a while longer before it`s bug free. So at this point we are considering just removing this function - and adding it later on once it`s fully fixed.

My question is - how important is this function to you? Should we just remove it and not spend additional time trying to fix it in the future? Or is it essential for you and you think it`s best to leave it in-game (potentially causing armies to loose units) and try to fix it in the next few patches?

It is not an important option in my opinion. Only used in the betas to see what it dose but never was a useful solution to me. I rather bring my army next to town and transfer the hero like i would transfer anything else , then use the garrison button. Eventually to help people getting the hero in town quicker, change that garrison button to "quick transfer hero" button.

I enjoy the garrison feature and used up until I lost an army to it. It's very useful so I can keep track of what units and resources I have in my army and what I'm using in my home city. However, I'd prefer if it was removed until it is fixed to prevent any further mishaps. I probably won't touch it until fixed if it is left in the game but I think removing it would be best for any new players as well. Losing a whole army to a bug, even if recoverable, is painful and paints a bad picture.

I Hardly use it
Mainly because I dont want to have an Army that takes up Army Slot and is Standing around Idle

It would be nice if this Feature would be revised completly
Its good to have an Garrisoned Army since its easyr to Pull out Troops from the Town
but since its not very Convient it is usually easyer to just Create and Discard Armys

Thanks for the feedback so far - looks like we`ll remove this feature for now unless somebody protests with a good reason not to.

I use it because for one..what kind of stronghold does not garrison troops? Really....my city is manned to the death. I have ogres as sentries and troops across all my walls and patrolling. It's immersion..and removing it breaks that. Geez..now I have a stronghold of workers? What if someone attacks? I only have workers to defend it? And yes..i have maxed out all 5 armies....and I am in WANT OF MORE TROOPS! ( KON.....ORCS NEED MORE ARMY SLOTS )

I use it, but I could live without it. After all, all it does is move troops into your city, which you can do manually anyway. Sure, it keeps the army together, which is useful, but it's not crucial.

If it's causing a bunch of bugs, then I say get rid of it for now, but feel free to bring it back later on.

I like the idea of removing it,fixing it later.

Vote 1 for complete removal and reimplementation at a later date (once it's fixed and bug free)

I already have 5 armies maxed out..no more room..so 60ish squads of units just go pooooof? Maybe increase the orc's army limit while you're at it too ;D.

I don't even know what it does -.- been trying to figure it out, but if it's deleting troops I say get it out of the way till it's not going to hurt players

Garrison just marks units on your army creation screen. It makes it so you know what units to leave or what to take out of your city. Garrisoned units will have a shield on their icon when creating an army.

in garrison army i think you should make all the troops you assign to be garrison unable to put in army so i wont by mistake take them out i think that would be great

i'm not using it too. anyway each of my unit got their own little name, as decent Ogre slave, Robert stay at the gate, while Bob bring the meat with the army.
