Picture this: You have a bunch of swordsmen attackin some archers the swordsmen have really huge shields but they're never gonna use em.

Now picture this: You have a bunch of swordsmen attackin some archers the swordsmen r startin to get weak... i'm stoppin this fer a second. In this kinda situation it would be kewl to get a new stance: Shield stance- only units wit shields can use this. Now we get back to what i was explainin: you click shield stance fer all yer swordsmenthe swordsmen grab their huge shields pund them in da ground then they get on their knees and use da shields as cover till other units come. And they could always grab their swords and run away!

Tell me what you think i think it's a cool idea.

Thats a cool idea...but if they get behind there shields, then there not attacking...wich leaves them a very easy target for any enemy ground units...

Think bout dis the unit would have to walk around da shield to get to yer guy the unit would easily be killed just stab em in da stomach and it's spossed to be used fer archers cause when the arow is comin all your guy has to do is position his shield.

Yeah, I bet they could get it to work somehow.

This adds too much micro imo. The swordsmen should use shields during a battle anyway, you shouldn't have to make a special stance for this. You could also argue that your ideas are already in aoe and aok in the form of armor hit points the armor hit points.

*agrees with SoR_Anarchy*

Picture that: units are hiding inside their shields on the griund, unaware of what's going on above them, while suddenly... a huge hydra... driving a huge truck... runs over them .
