Currently group mechanism only works in towns (put battering ram at first and h.cats/cannons behind and they can fight without worries
Its not like that. It would combine 2 units and not have one take damage while the other can safely attack

Re: Wall of spears

I have proposed a simular idea in aos called group formations
(i'd link it but i dont know how)
Basicly you merge 2 units into 1 ad this 1 has stats from first unit + 50% stats from second

Re: Group formations

Idunno
For the tech maybe sword and spear crossed in front of a big sheild
The formation could be an effect icon above the carryer that shows the ither unit in formation.

Re: Animal companion

I ahve been thinking about something simular.
A roman war dog trainer that functions like the ent trainer in aof but it would be a unit and only war dogs could enter its carrying slots.
But i like your idea just as well.

Carrying is only ingame how i think it could be coded. I must admit i cant put my thougts into words.

Re: Samurai to elite samurai

If you look at the armor you see that it is also effective against arrows.
The main problem in my opinion is that if the samurai had better armorit should cost 4 at least.
