Thats good to hear Rick i will pick it up again if this gets altered, also could the function of the "H" key slightly and have it hold position/halt of just the sqaud/tank regardless of the current orders, not the whole formation, maybe "SHIFT+H" holds position of the whole formation instead. Its a fun game but these are the main two things that pissed me off and have kept me playing it much scince i purchased six months ago and having to select the formation leader to change orders for the formation, i know he is the head honcho and all, the man with the plan, but from a game point of view changing orders from anybody in the formation would save some needless faffing. Hey, no harm in asking right
I don't have the game with me, but if I understand what you are describing above, that is how the orders work during the Reaction Phase, ie orders only affect the selected unit. Also, if you're platoon already has any Engage order (with sub order of Move, Hold, Target, etc.), changing the sub-order of the HQ unit won't affect the orders the other units in the platoon have.
Having said that though, I think in the next game in the series we would like to overhaul the orders system to make it work a little better.
(and nope, no harm in asking!).
