Rapidly swiching targets


I send my army to attack a small goblin camp and my units rapidly switch targets. they just keep running back and forth. switching back and forth between two goblins or a goblin and the firepit
Steps to reproduce:

  1. get an army
  2. send them near a small goblin camp
  3. close enough that they will start attacking

Expected Results:
pick one target and attack until dead
Actual Results:
rapidly switching targets and running back and forth
the only way I could get them to kill the goblins instead of running back and forth is to manually target an enemy one by one until they were all dead

System Information:


if you have pathing visible you can see the same thing happening during building, looting, harvesting, etc. I’ve even seen it with hearthlings going up and down a latter. If a hearthling has two precisely equidistant choices they’ll flop back and forth rather than picking and committing.


I have pathfinding visible. it only happens when I attack small goblin camps it doesn’t happen when attacking anything else. I’ve tried it multiple times. It happens every time. and it will go on forever without stopping unless i manually target an enemy
