Idle military units/other questions/feedback
So, my first town is a orc city, trying them out.

I have tons of idle military units on my map, I mostly just place them at the healing lake thingy. But what canI do with them? I mean.. I have a lot of them, they're taking up quite some space and having them on my map raises my population so high spawning new laborers/marauders takes AGES.

What should I do with these? Can I just put them in a army outside of the city which reduces the population which makes spawning new orcs faster in my town? I thought it would be kinda handy with a building, like a barrack or something where you can put idle units so they dont take up population space (or land space), and pop them out when you need them. Being a noobie that is just the first impressions.

Having such slow spawn also makes my resources stack up because.. well.. I cant spend it on units because they spawn so damn slow.

And please, for the love of gaming make the AI's pathfinding, AI in general and controlling battles much more fluid and less dumb. The AI feels so stupid, running past enemies when having them on attack-move that is just by them (sometimes it feels like they dont defend themselves when they're being attacked either). Giving orders is so clunky and not fluid at all. You have to really make sure you're moving a unit. If you are too fast nothing happens. You have to carefully select, slowly press *move* to a location, make sure the flag is placed and then you're done. Managing armies/battles MUST be fluid in a game like this and not feel like driving a truck on a mountain bike trail. This should be top 1 priority imo. Graphics and other stuff is less important, the gameplay/combat must feel fluid and reactive!! It almost feels like a beta product, and the game has been released for 1 year? This HAS to get fixed.

I really hope they are working on this, because this is my biggest issue with the game. I love the concept, but this problem is making it harder and harder for me to enjoy playing it.

Also, no comments on what to do with idle units?

The game was kicked out the door by the ex publisher, leaving the devs to pick up the pieces. Your best bet is to just put your extra orcs into armies. It's what I do with my orc town. I leave a defense force and then just put the rest in armies all over the world map. I totally agree with your statement about fluid movements too.

Ah alright, I got the impression that armies costs gold when outside of the town, maybe thats just if your army are carrying gold?

Oh I see... That really sucks for the developers, I really hope its their first prio though. This game has so much potential but I fear new players will just leave because of this

Armies only lose gold when they carry more then their supply limit. I believe it's capped at ~50 gold a minute so if you're carrying several thousand gold it's not much of an issue. Making an all treant/horse cart/ogre army will allow it to carry massive amounts of gold due to using units designed to boost army capacity on the march.
