If I'm besieged and I want my guys in the city to sally out
to support a relief army, do I have to set their posture to anything special as well as clicking the special order button?
Obviously not green/green, but I was um... surprised...
in my latest game to find some of my guys sallying out before the relief force had even entered the province! That did not end well given a stack of doom was outside!
I had set them orange/orange. Was that the cause? What should I have done?
My understanding that the attack-out order always meant "wait for the relief force" first, but perhaps I'm mistaken?
Is it actually possible to get besieged stacks to attack out without any external relief force using that special order button?
Also, I can drag a stack out of a besieged city I've noticed. What does that mean in game terms; is it different to the special order button? Do they leave the city and fight in the open. The position of a stack on the GUI sometimes is unclear about whether it is inside or outside.
