That's a situation I'd love to be elves in. Just hide in some trees and flank or ambush the army with small hit and run attacks.

They still do not have to stay on the road, they can still go cross country anywhere they like.

If you where in control of a massive army, and you wanted to ambush your enemies stronghold, would you really move along the busiest roads to reach his stronghold to get spotted by them right away? No, you would flank the stronghold and at least slow their reaction time to your siege ambush.

If roads were implemented I could really only see them as a boost to trade. An enemy army wouldn't openly move on the opposing forces road unless they were sure of their power in repelling any ambushing force or any force that would sally out to meet them.

However, if roads are implemented for the use of trade I do support the idea that they add a speed boost to armies marching on them, no matter the side. It's been a recurring theme throught out history, from the paved roads of Rome to the railroads of the Union, that armies that are able to move the fastest internally can not only defend themselves but also attack their enemies quicker.

I could also see your units getting a speed bonus for going on roads as well.

Roads are death traps, don't ever, ever use them.

Quoted for truth. Invading enemy territory and using the main roads equals holding a "FREE KILLS HERE!" banner above your head.

But in a mountain pass or something like that you could have natural barriers making you a little bit more protected.

If you're launching a decisive counter-attack, then in some situations taking the road will ensue a grand victory.

Indeed. Sometimes speed is more important than safety and so caution must be thrown out the window
