But autofire options could be implemented for all ranks. I and few other members put some remaks in that matter in few earlier threads.
This option could include units experience or players orders given long before - what range and how soldiers could start fire.
It's quite complicated matter in my opinion. I'd like to have the control of the firing order. In many cases it is vital to save your fire in order to avoid annihilation. Units experience is essential though.
But priset still could exist, at last many nations were motivated by priset e.g.
Russian, Spaniards and Egyptians.
I agree, especially for Russian and Spanish army (e.g. the Russian church procession up the hill from Borodino).
Ceasefire is disputable at last there were many friendly fires at that period e.g. at Wagram or Borodino.
It's true. There is also the Waterloo incident where the Prussians mistakenly fired on British artillery causing many casualties, and British artillery returned fire at them.
But these incidents are the exception, not the rule.
POWs and army surgeons are quite historically accurate and immersive additions in my book.
