If player is smart to notice "why I loose again?", then he or she will try to find better tactics. For me it is obvious but i know that not everyone love thinking about tactics and strategy
You jump to the conclusion in that case, because you suggested that people do not think, and that these which use stacking formations loose the game.
It is FALSE conclusion. I am afraid stacking formation "ARE VERY EFFICIENT" to win the game in C2. However it looks idiotic and totally unrealistic.
All we can see again and again stacking formations, specially cavalry formations which usually help win the game. These crowded stacking cavalry formations kill everything on their way to enemy base. Artillery don't stop them. What is more, sometimes you even can not use artillery guns because you have not enough time to use them.
I could say that stacking formations ARE current, widesprid tactic in multiplayer and this is very bad. Therefore I and many other players do not like multiplayer games. Who knows maybe this is why C2 was less popular in multiplayer than C1.
I not refuse stacking exist or my proposition will stop it. I give you something like prevention actions, ok? That is all.
Why am I so stubborn? Because I well know that I can write again and again that stacking is bad but I don't know very well games engines to find the best resolve. From my point my temporarily solution is better than do nothing.
I'm sorry, but you proposition to stop or prevent stacking formations with artillery clearly failed.
Nevertheles I see that we AGREE that stacking formations are bad. Think it needs programming solutions in the end.
