Something seriously wrong occurs when starting custom battles in Attila. Following the system established in Rome II for custom battles, the human player army and the A.I. army each have graphically marked out rectangular zones at opposite ends of the battlefield within which the armies are *supposed* to initially appear for their deployment before the battle starts.
That's the way it's supposed to work and that's the way it works in Rome II.
But this system is screwed up in Attila.
In the pre-battle initial deployment phase in custom battles in Attila, the A.I armies first appear way, WAY *outside* of their initial deployment box. They appear way, way *forward* of their initial deployment box. Before I even click on "start battle," the A.I. army is already almost nose to nose with my army. Also, the front rank units of my army initially appear to have just stepped over the front edge of their initial deployment box.
