Formations in WC3 are however... sadly lacking in complexity and in practicality. When you tell your units to attack... they inevitably BREAK formation. I have found that they are of little to know use in actual combat, tho they are great for organizing your troops before or after. I have observed that starcraft 2 may have better formation commands. We shall see....

NOTE: I am not saying WC3 is a bad game, In fact, at the moment, its basically all I can play as my PC had to be trashed and I dont have the money for another one yet.


You are right Pezhead, formations don't remain in WC3 fights. I didn't recognize that until you said it. I guess it all depends on the type of strategy game being played. Some are formation-centric, others are unit-centric. WC3 is definitely unit-centric. Starcraft is on a formation-centric scale, but had unit-centric mechanics (i.e. it just didn't pull of the formation-centric format, IMO).

Hang in there! We're all in this together.
