Stacking and possible fixes


#1

Soo I’ve been messing around with just random things in the game and I decided to test out an annoying strategy called stacking (you stack your entire army in 1 pile) so I opened up a sandbox mode and then created a huge army VS a huge army 1 would stack up the other would run in and try to defeat them


And from the photo you can see that the attacking team lost greatly
So I’m here to offer some possible ideas on how to fix this problem

  1. Add a debuff if more then 4 or 5 units are all on top of each other and the debuff stacks until the debuff makes the units useless
  2. See 1 just buff the attacking team
  3. Make it so that units will automatically move out of a stack
    That’s all I could think of off the top of my head.

If they are on top of each other maybe have a debuff for losing organisation? Like a moral penalty.


#3

Yeah, or have their speed and attack decrease


#4

They should take extra damage while on low organisation


#5

Not extra damage but have low defense


#6

Or maybe make ut really hard to take units out of the horde and make mixed units really slow


#7

Muskets can easily deal with that.


#8

Yes they can but the ones stacking can rush them or harass the muskets with cavalry


#9

Muskets archers would easily route that stack and if u defend ur own muskets you’ll be alright


#10

But if the stack rushes you there’s not a lot of options, if you run you’ll be chased and won’t have any time to get archers and muskets ready or if stand and fight then you’ll just get obliterated by the stack


#11

Defensively stacking is useless, offensively it’s a tool of mass destruction


#12

Just have 3 different firing positions if they chase 1 move then let the others fire if they chase all 3 then there no longer stacked problem solved


#13

That’s actually really smart, I didn’t think of that, force them to spread apart and pick them off


#14

I’ve beat stacked players countless times even great stacked players with this tactic


#15

You have to micro micro…and then micro some more…
