What I mean is that in practically any RTS where you have formation, take Total Was games for example, whenever a group of units in formation passes through a narrow space (like a gate) the formation will temporarily tighten (units will come closer together) and after passing through it will return to its previous state (formation).
It would be silly to have to manually switch to a column formation whenever your units are passing through a tight space, right?
