I want em to Fight

Not Fighting and not Jumping right into the Fray are two different things


I want em to have their Own Stats or Share the Squads Stats
and I want em to Fight

But that doesnt mean I want em to stand right frontal against the Enemy Line

Just like a Captain he Should stay a little behind his Squad or at the Center of his Squad
means he wont Fight unless he must



A Squadleader in Real Armys also has a Gun
and he will use it if he gets an enemy in range or if he himself gets dragged into Combat
but he wont be running at Enemys or try to get into the Battle




Right now it is like that

Your Squad sees an Enemy and will start Charging at it
means it will Run towards the Enemy to Attack
now while I dont em doing that
the Squad Captain should be a little Different
He should not start to Run or Charge he should simply continue to walk towards the Enemys
means that he will be the last or at least one of the last Men in the Squad to join the Fight

in best case he wont be Fighting since all Enemys are occupied by the Squad
of course if the enemy has higher Numbers he will also Join the Fight

tbh you know what this game lacks most ?
formations

and not just your units lining up in a square instead of a line

no formations which they keep...
in combat as well

so when 2 army's clash only the units clashing will fight and the ones behind will stay in formation
this way you can set up the captain in the center of the formation and he will only die if the formation fails

then again... dawn of fantasy is sorta middle ages... back then they all fought like a rowdy bunch :P

just let them be some guy who waves his sword to signal attacks and such

anyways i get the feeling were talking around in circles right now xD
They don't know what they're talking about and yet they're expanding beyond the said topic. Now they're talking about how squad captains should fight what instead of "SHOULD WE HAVE SQUAD CAPTAINS?"

Just what you expect from hypocritical people who don't know how to apologize or own up to their mistakes. and it is very amusing to see Sun comment on me when he "should" have me on ignore. He should be doing what he's doing, ignoring me instead of acknowledging me. But hey, it's fine if kids in high school want to have an ego. Besides, I don't believe i'm trolling. The only people getting mad here is Knight/Sun. You guys won't even pm me to sort it out. How immature. Still waiting on an apology from you Knight too. Slandering is illegal in the real world btw.

pathfinding might include something like this as controlled movements will keep them the way they are when they meet (depends if thats what joe is focusing it on)

they didnt, they had there battle mechanics pretty much down

the problem with military in medieval times was that often 10-30 % of the army was mercenaries, knights and royalty and professional soldiers and the rest were just peasants with pitchforks and other battle-adapted farming tools (for example archers were mostly farmers and hunters that got drafted in name of the king)

although the peasantry mostly had no military training, and thus rarely used any formation other then "stay close to your flag" any other had very sophisticated military strategy (some directly inherited from the romans)
