In every Total War game your army has a red sphere of influence around them that traps other armies if they stay within it on turns end, acts as an outline for your ambush area and so forth.
It used to be, that you could not walk through this sphere without attacking the army (in Shogun 2 you were able to block mountain passes or other choke points with your armies and their red spheres).
It's so infuriating in Warhammer 2 that enemy armies can just walk past you like you're not even there (especially when you set up an ambush and it fails and then they go right by you to attack your settlement or something).
The worst example of this is when you raise a settlement and another faction (sometimes the same faction) walks right by you and re-colonises it. Not sure if its the same now but it used to be that the AI doesn't take attrition for settling a province so they get it back for free.
Warhammer 2 is riddled with little issues that we rarely discuss, because they aren't as glaring or game-breaking as something like horde factions and I think this is one of them.
is this something you experience / want back as well? let me know.
