Soldiers are attacking enemies only on their lonesome


Some soldiers are attacking far away enemies by themselves.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Load the linked save
  2. Remove the guard order from the archer

Expected Results:


  • The archer resumes hauling goods or patrolling around the placed farms; or
  • His whole party attacks the camp together.

Actual Results:

The archer immediately starts chasing by himself any of the enemies that are located on the nearby goblin wolf camp.


It’s not only this particular archer, but there’s always one of my soldiers that will attack an enemy camp alone, and they most likely die. Just before this, I had promoted a worker to Footman and just after he got his wooden sword, he went straight to the enemy camp.

And this also happened on previous versions of the game.
