Elven formations take a long time to switch, and elven units are immobile and useless while switching.
Men formations take no time to switch, however after switching formations there is a cooldown that does not let you switch again for a little while.
Orc formations have huge fatigue costs and fatigue drains, so while they give big bonuses they also don't last long and cannot be switched often.
