There are a variety of more advanced methods for issuing instructions to selected units once basic manoeuvring is learned. Use the cursor keys to nudge selected units into position, for example.
- Hold shift when right-clicking to enqueue a waypoint, or hold shift and drag a path for units with the right mouse button.
- Hold ctrl when right-clicking and dragging out a formation to walk units into their specified positions. This is useful when concealing units in forested terrain.
- Hold alt, and left-click and drag on a selection on the battlefield to move units in formation.
- Units in Guard mode won’t pursue a fleeing enemy. Guard mode can be activated by clicking the Guard button.
