Revise close order formation layout

Recommended Posts

The current closed order formation looks like this. Champion infantry at the very front, followed by melee cavalry, ranged cavalry, then melee infantry and ranged infantry at the very back.  



I would suggest a change to this layout, with citizen melee at the very front, behind them is melee infantry champions, after that is melee cavalry, then ranged cavalry and finally ranged infantry. 

The reason being, if a player has a few ranged cavalry with a mostly infantry army, then the ranged cavalry will be placed in front and directly exposed to enemy spearmen, which means certain death. If we put these cavalry behind your own melee then they can attack safely from a distance and shield some splash damage from your fragile ranged infantry.
