View Full Version : Double line formation...

15th Jul 2005, 14:56
Hey I was wondering what the special attribute allowing your mean to form a double line does. Does it cause the regiment in front to kneel if there is a regiment behind it? I was wondering because even without the attribute your regiments can form a line... Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Your second line never fires. I haven't even noticed them firing at all when double line is researched, they just stand back there with their thumbs up their butts. I think to simulate the double line, your firing rate increases. Anyone else's thoughts?

The third line fires aswell. It kinda doubles your damage.

I saw the front lines kneel before they shoot looked cool :cool:

before double line only the first line fires.

after double line you can see both the first and second line fire, just not the third.

That's what I see anyway.

When you get the double line formation it makes the two front rows fire the very front kneel and the second are able to fire

This actually gives a tremendous boost too the firepower of the unit, Which you will notice on the unit information window, when you select it. Your first row should kneel and fire, thus allowing a second line to fire as well... (as far as animations go). If you see nothing, it may be a graphical setting your off on.
